    Best Cheap Soundbars

    Once upon a time, a home theater systems seemed like a luxury. But our search of expert and user reviews turned up products from both "big names" and budget brands that deliver an enhanced home-viewing experience for less than $300. Not only have home theater systems with all the trimmings become less expensive, but these days consumers are increasingly moving away from the traditional home theater in a box and gravitating toward smaller speaker packages, particularly less expensive soundbars and sound bases, and then adding components as they see fit. While these home theater systems no doubt cut a few corners -- the speakers aren't as loud or crystal clear as high-end speakers, for example -- they're guaranteed to sound far, far better than a TV alone.
