The Yamaha YAS-203 breaks free of most of the performance constraints of budget sound bars, sounding bigger, more spacious, more dynamic and clearer than anything near its price.
The Episode 500 separates itself from the soundbar pack with a less conventional design that makes a big difference when compared to other soundbars.
The Samsung HW-H450 is our Top Ten Reviews Bronze Award winner. This sound bar provides great sound quality, though it isn't as proficient in surround sound simulation or dialogue clarity as our top two sound bars. It does boast a handful of connectivity ports, including HDMI, aux and USB. This sound bar is one of the few units under $300, and it is small enough to fit on many TV stands. It is a great option if you are limited on space.
