A modest proposal: If you have to turn on closed captioning, find yourself constantly muttering 'What did that guy just say?' or rewinding movies in 10-second bursts just to be able to make out the dialogue, you might need a soundbar in your life.
A soundbar is a simple add-on to your entertainment system that'll profoundly elevate your audio. And we just found a gem at a killer price: The Sakobs TV Soundbar is on sale for just $48 (was $80) with on-page coupon at Amazon.
That's a 40 percent savings and the all-time lowest price on this popular soundbar. In fact, it has earned a five-star rating from more than 500 reviewers. Sleek and understated, it'll blend seamlessly into your electronics lineup.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Hear this: You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Miss going to the movies? We do too. The Sakobs TV Soundbar sates that multiplex jones by providing impeccable audio clarity. It's 16 inches wide with twin full-range 30-watt speakers and uses special HD sound-quality technology to enhance on-screen dialogue. That means you’ll finally get crystal-clear dialogue at a sane volume level. Voices come through sharp and detailed, while background sounds hover just where they should be — in the background.
"Great, affordable soundbar! This was a find," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "...The sound was awesome; especially from such a small speaker. Had very deep bass tones, but not so much that it drowned out the overall quality of the sound..."
Three modes of audio and 3D surround sound
Your new Sakobs TV Soundbar features three modes (Voice for movies, General for television eps, news and sports, and Treble for music) for whatever you’re enjoying on TV. Just press a button on its remote to automatically adjust audio levels without tinkering with settings. These modes will boost music, bring out background effects and enhance dialogue overall. No more cranking up the volume to ear-shattering levels just to hear dialogue.
How 'bout some immersion to go along with that precision? This workhorse has 3D Surround Sound to turn your living room into a mini-movie theater.
"This model has worked out perfectly," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I use the music mode for Peloton workouts and streaming from my playlists, and I use the TV mode for regular watching. There's also a movie mode that's similar to TV mode but with more bass...I appreciate that it came with three different types of connecting cords and a Bluetooth option...Now I just need the pandemic to end so that I can have a party!"
Setting up your new Sakobs TV Soundbar is super easy. Just plug it into your TV’s RCA ports via its auxiliary 3.5mm jack or optical digital port and you’re good to go. It also has a USB port and Bluetooth capability, so you can bring your own music to the party via flash drive, smartphone or tablet. You can even connect it to your laptop.
"Good value...This is exactly what I wanted. It connects easily and quickly to my laptop or iPhone and the sound fills the room nicely," added another five-star reviewer.
Seriously, for $48 (was $80), this one’s a no-brainer!
