If you have even a passing interest in tech, it’s impossible to ignore Samsung’s dominance in the market, and its expertise extends to home theater tech including some of the best soundbars on the market. Samsung’s soundbars can use virtual surround to create a wide soundstage, and some models can pair with a Samsung TV’s speakers for even more power. Overall, the Samsung HW-A450 is a good starting point for most people with stereo speakers and a wireless subwoofer. It even comes with a remote that can control both the soundbar and your TV.
