Vizio introduced its first-ever pedestal-style sound bar at CES 2014, looking to compete with similar models from Bose and Zvox.
Samsung's HW-H7500 is the "first sound bar built with a curved form factor" and is designed to complement the company's range of 55- and 65-inch curved TVs.
The 54-inch Vizio S5430W-C2 is designed to accompany larger televisions and features Bluetooth with aptX support.
Samsung joins Zvox and Bose with a flat sound bar designed to fit under your TV, rather than in front of it.
Pricing not available

The matching curved soundbar for Samsung's curved UHD TV goes on sale for around $860.
Vizio's new sound bars match up perfectly with 42- and 32-inch TVs, while also offering built-in Bluetooth and some very aggressive prices.
The Boston Acoustics TVee sound bars offer a sonic upgrade to flat-panel televisions and can be wall mounted.
The Samsung HT-BD8200 packs a Blu-ray player into a sound bar for unparalleled simplicity, but disappointing sound quality and operational glitches limit its appeal.
Instead of its usual array of Blu-ray home theater systems, Panasonic is offering three sound bars, two of which can be converted into separate speakers.
