A sound bar improves audio performance over a television's built-in speakers without the complications of installing multiple speakers throughout a room.
You enjoy high-quality audio—the way it brings out the subtleties in entertainment, the way it heightens the impact—but not enough to invest in a full-blown home theater. Maybe you live in a small apartment. Maybe your favorite place to watch movies is from bed. Or maybe you just like to keep things simple. Whatever your reasons, a sound bar could be the answer. The best sound bars combine superior audio capabilities and ingenious design into a sleek and unobtrusive package. The benefits include:

Some also feature a separate subwoofer for the lowest frequencies. Another important consideration is the presence of critical Dolby® technologies. These enhance a sound bar's audio capabilities and create a richer, more satisfying listening experience for you.

Dolby technologies elevate the overall performance of sound bars and add important features. Look for sound bars from these manufacturers when shopping for your next system.
