Cyber Monday is a great time to get a good deal on that audio system you've had your eye on, so here's a selection of the best bargains we've found and where you can pick them up.
We'll start with one of the best deals we've seen for some time. The Sony STR-DN1080 receiver is the CNET Editors' Choice of 2017 and offers excellent sound quality. It has a great feature mix including Dolby Atmos, HDR compatibility and Chromecast. At $400, it's an absolute steal.
From one Editors' Choice to another, the Elac B6 is an absolute belter of a speaker and one of the best budget models ever made. Now at $200, they're simply an insane value.
Another Andrew Jones design and the big brother of the B6, the Elac Uni-Fi UB5 is also one of our favorite speakers. At a $150 discount, it's almost impossible to pass up. Be aware you'll need a good amplifier to power them -- for example, the Sony STR-DN1080 from the first slide.
Though it's not technically an audio-only component (it will spin CDs and stream music), at half its retail price the X800 is such a good deal that we're telling everyone.
The Vizio SB3621n-E8 sound bar system is our favorite sound bar of 2017, and now you can get it crazy cheap.
The Audiophiliac's Best Speaker of 2012 is now under a grand. Steve Guttenberg called it "the best-sounding speaker I've heard on my desktop." The LS50's driver combines a ribbed 5.25-inch aluminum/magnesium woofer with a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter. Compact, stunning to look at, and sounds good too.
Before designer Andrew Jones went on to bigger and better things at Elac, he created the EBS73s. These have a similar sound to the UB5s but offer even better aesthetics and are Atmos compatible.
Part of a new breed of budget sound bars, the Polk Signa S1 offers almost everything you need -- Bluetooth, optical connection, wireless subwoofer -- and is now even better value.
The Polk Magnifi Mini is one of the most affordable sound bars with both HDMI and Chromecast onboard. For $200 on Cyber Monday, you'll be hard-pressed to find this kind of value and performance.
The Polk Omni SB1 Plus is a high-end sound bar that is priced like an entry-level one. It's got multiroom music via Play-Fi and HDMI switching.
We haven't reviewed the HT-CT290 but have consistently been impressed with Sony's recent sound bars. It offers HDMI and Bluetooth, which is pretty much what you need for the money.
We haven't reviewed the Series V, but we did look at the Series III and found that the system was capable of a big sound that belied the size of its tiny satellites. If you're a Bose fan, it's unlikely you'll get a better deal on these.
While not quite as accomplished as the competitive Samsung HW950, the Sony HT-ST5000 is nonetheless an excellent Dolby Atmos sound bar.
A distinctive design, excellent features and a nice price. If you're looking for a mid-level USB turntable this is the one we'd consider.
The Riva offers a lot of connectivity for a multiroom speaker including Apple Airplay, Bluetooth and Chromecast. There's also a battery option. Sounds good, too.
We haven't reviewed this model, but with Bluetooth streaming, wireless subwoofer and optical input for $120, what's not to like?
The Bose SoundTouch is an excellent Wi-Fi speaker which also offers Bluetooth capability. The shortcuts on top also mean you don't need to use your phone to get music to play.
Our favorite sound base bar none, the Sonos Playbase may not have all of the features of its competitors, but it sounds good and has multiroom music sorted.
Yes, it's a 2016 model, but this is the followup to one of our previous faves, the TX-NR646. It has the features you want including HDR pass-through, Chromecast and Dolby Atmos.
