There have been quite a few deals on VIZIO’s excellent 38" 5.1 sound bar system, but today on Amazon, you can get a refurb of the 40" version for an all-time low $217.

An extra 2" of length isn’t a huge deal, but the 40" model features metal accents instead of the smaller model’s plastic, and most importantly, HDMI audio input. Otherwise, it’s still by far the easiest way to upgrade your home theater to surround sound.
