Congratulations to Mark K. of Ashburn, Virginia, for winning a Piper DIY computer kit for kids last week, and to Jaque R. of Phoenix for winning five films on Blu-ray the week before that.
This week's winner gets a Sony HT-XT1, a slim pedestal sound bar you place under your TV to boost the sound from your set's built-in speakers. The gadget includes three HDMI inputs and built-in Bluetooth with NFC support. It's easy to hook up and simple to operate, and it plays loud without distorting, says our CNET reviewer Ty Pendlebury.
"Sony's HT-XT1 sound stand is packed with features, looks sleek, and sounds great, making it a no-brainer upgrade over your TV's built-in speakers," he writes. It's designed for TVs with screens of up to 55 inches that weigh less than 66 pounds.
