It’s (very nearly) impossible to enjoy your oversized, flat screen television through its own speakers. (We say very nearly, because sometimes it depends on the people with you.) But, home theater systems are passé. Okay, we won’t go that far, but soundbars offer remarkable sound in a fraction of the space with a fraction of the effort. And, they’re especially perfect for smaller homes that simply don’t accommodate a full 7.1-surround sound system.
Today’s soundbars do more than channel sound from your television; they’re increasingly geared to connect with your IoT home, not to mention your friends’ smart devices. The flexibility to entertain your company with their music, alongside 3 HDMI ports and NFC capabilities is precisely why #1 sits where it does. If it’s good company, you’ll want to step up your entertainment game. (And if it’s not, perhaps these soundbars can help you drown them out.)
