Even if audiophiles would probably disagree, I'd say you can't go wrong with Bose if you're a regular consumer in need of good sound quality. Amazon must've thought as much when it decided to reduce prices of more than a dozen Bose products such as headphones, soundbars, and smart home speakers. Some of the devices are discounted by more than 50%.

Pick up a Polk Command Bar for $200 ($100 off) and get a new reason to shout at Alexa

Ever since the introduction of virtual assistants like Alexa or the Google Assistant, manufacturers have tried to shoehorn them into every possible product or appliance. Everything from microwaves to eyeglasses can now accept voice commands. While these may not be the most practical examples, there is one product category that seems to be a natural fit for voice assistant integration — home theater equipment. Both Polk and JBL have attempted to combine the functionality of a soundbar and a smart speaker into one device. Polk's entry into this developing market, the Command Bar, is currently on sale at Amazon for $200 — a savings of $100.

B&O announces very pretty, very expensive Chromecast-enabled soundbar

B&O has a history of making speakers that don't look like other speakers, which can be great if you like the company's minimalist aesthetic. There's a new B&O soundbar on the way that could really complement that cone-shaped speaker it released a while back.

JBL Link Bar review: Android TV in a soundbar is a fantastic idea that JBL very nearly nails

Adding a soundbar is one of the quickest, easiest, and potentially most impressive upgrades you can make to your television, supercharging your entertainment experience with rich, room-filling sound. And while there's no shortage of options out there, supporting tons of extra audio channels or external subwoofers, we’re only now starting to see really smart, connected solutions emerge.

The JBL Link Bar is just such a marriage, wedding Android TV smarts with a 100W soundbar. So instead of just upgrading your TV to sound a whole lot better, it offers a shot in the arm for aging legacy sets that lack built-in streaming or smart-home features of their own.

Google Assistant rolls out to several Bose speakers and soundbars

Back in August last year, Bose unveiled two soundbars and a smart home speaker that came built-in with Alexa. This move was somewhat surprising given the company chose to integrate Assistant into the refreshed QC35, but the manufacturer did say other voice assistants would make their way to its speakers at a later stage. This is now the case, as an automatic software update brings Google’s digital helper to the Home Speaker 500, Soundbar 500, and Soundbar 700. The feature will also be available on the Home Speaker 300, a new compact product that will be available this summer.

Sony's ridiculously expensive soundbar with built-in Chromecast is now slightly less ridiculous at $1,200 ($300 off)

If you're willing to spend home theater-level pricing, but don't want to deal with a standalone speaker/receiver setup, super-expensive soundbars like Sony's 7.1.2-channel unit might be your figurative and literal jam. But if the original $1,500 asking price was just a bit too rich for your blood, the price has been dropped basically everywhere to $1,200.

JBL Link Bar orders delayed, likely won't ship this year

Android TVs and Home units have become the hallmark of a smart home powered by Google. We’ve seen a fair share of Android TV boxes from a variety of manufacturers, including the Nvidia Shield. For the most part, they offered the same features in slightly-different packages. But when Google announced the JBL Link Bar, we witnessed a different product entirely. Sadly, pre-orders for the Android soundbar have now been hit with delays.
