Best Soundbar Deals for August 2018

Best Soundbar Deals: Looking to get a great soundbar for cheap? We’ve been searching the internet high and low for the best UK soundbar deals.

Today’s TV sets have got the visual side of things nailed, with 4K and UHD technologies doing things that would make your local cinema setup whimper.

But most if not all modern TV sets need some serious assistance on the audio front. These super-skinny form factors are easy on the eye and highly practical in space-saving terms, but they’re not what you’d call conducive to an expansive sound stage.

It used to be that plugging in a speaker system was the way to go, but this was always messy and frequently impractical. Enter the soundbar, which provides all the audio punch of a decent set of speakers with almost none of the logistical hassle.

Soundbars are essentially elongated, self-contained speaker systems that sit neatly below or just in front of your TV set. They can also be mounted on a wall.

Even the most basic soundbar will greatly enhance your TV’s audio output, with significantly greater volume and richer bass. They can also include Dolby Atmos support, if you’re willing to spend a few pounds more.

Modern soundbars can cover the whole range of output options, from classic 2.1 (which includes a separate subwoofer) right up to full 7.1 surround sound.

You might also encounter something called a soundbase. This is essentially a flatter, sturdier soundbar that you can literally sit your TV on top of. It’s a great option when space is at a particular premium.

Whatever form of soundbar you decide is for you, we’ve rounded up some great deals. We’ll be keeping these deals up to date over the coming weeks and months, so be sure to bookmark this page. Then of course there’s Black Friday towards the end of the year, which we’ll also be monitoring.

All prices were correct at time of publication but are subject to change. If you spot a deal you want, be sure to snap it up before it goes.
