A superb, low-cost soundbar and subwoofer combo, this Samsung 2.1 soundbar is part of the early run on Black Friday deals. The main Black Friday event may be a couple of weeks away yet, but we're increasingly seeing great deals to be had, and this entry-level soundbar caught my eye.
Right now this Samsung soundbar is just $99 at Walmart (opens in new tab), saving $50 on the price of this soundbar with subwoofer.
Samsung HW-T415 soundbar:
$149 $99 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
This entry-level soundbar has all the right elements to step up the sound quality from your TV. It comes with a large wireless subwoofer, is wireless surround-ready via compatible Samsung speakers, should you wish to expand the system, and has Bluetooth connectivity.
Although we haven't reviewed this specific 2.1-channel soundbar model, we've seen plenty of top performing entry-level soundbars in our best cheap soundbars round up, and the Samsung HW-T415 looks like a real contender.
The fact that the Samsung is packaged with a subwoofer, means that it's likely to make a big impression on your TV viewing, boosting movies and drama soundtracks with plenty of powerful bass energy to bring on-screen action to life, and give soundtracks scale.
Speaking of power, the Samsung's output is rated a 170W, which should be enough to handle even the most high-octane soundtracks and give them the oomph they deserve in a medium-sized TV room. Audio compatibility runs to Dolby Digital and DTS formats, and surround sound expansion mode is intended to make movie soundtracks more immersive by creating a pseudo surround sound effect.
Connectivity runs to a single optical digital audio port only, and the soundbar comes supplied with a remote control so that you can tweak the settings and adjust the volume level from the comfort of your sofa.
At $99, this looks like a bargain buy for a second room TV or a bedroom, although at 35 inches wide it won't look out of place alogside larger TV screen sizes either.
