Yamaha YAS-207BL | $270 | Amazon

Yamaha’s YAS-207BL was the first sound bar on the market to simulate surround sound with Dolby DTS Virtual:X, which bounces audio off your walls and ceiling without the aid of satellite speakers. I tried it myself, and the result was surprisingly convincing.

If you’ve been holding out for a good deal, it just dropped to $270, or $30 less than usual. We’ve seen it go a bit lower on a few occasions, but this is still a solid price if you’re in the market.
