Yamaha YAS-207BL | $270 | Amazon

Yamaha’s YAS-207BL was the first sound bar on the market to simulate surround sound with Dolby DTS Virtual:X, which bounces audio off your walls and ceiling without the aid of satellite speakers. I tried it myself, and the result was surprisingly convincing.

If you’ve been holding out for a good deal, it just dropped to $250, or $50 less than usual. We briefly saw it go as low as $230 for Black Friday, but otherwise, this is the best deal we’ve seen.
