Whenever I’m watching TV with my family, someone (and by someone, I mean my mom or my dad) is always complaining that they can’t hear what’s happening on screen. I try to turn up the volume to no avail, as our TV speakers simply have not-so-great sound quality no matter how loud they are. I recently caved and bought my mom a soundbar for her birthday last week, and the difference in audio quality is like night and day. My only regret is not waiting for this sale that just popped up on our favorite affordable soundbar, so that I could’ve saved a bit more.
The Polk Audio Signa S2 is the best soundbar under $200 that we’ve ever tested. Right now, you can get it for just $150 on Amazon, which is $50 cheaper than what it usually retails for. We’ve only seen the price dip lower than this once before, so now’s an excellent time to seriously consider upgrading your home theater with the Polk.
The Polk Audio Signa 2 is an incredible deal given that for less than $200, you’re getting a well-tuned soundbar with an external subwoofer that delivers crisp, rich audio, satisfying bass, and has a sleek, yet durable construction. Our home theater expert particularly loved the “Clear Voice” setting that made understanding dialogue much improved when watching TV and movies. It also comes with all the basic features like Bluetooth pairing, and different audio modes for movie, music, or “night audio” which reduces high frequencies and bass.
If you’re still depending on your TV’s built-in speakers to do the job of an external speaker, we think it’s about time to upgrade to a more immersive sound experience. This Polk will definitely do the job well, plus, with football season coming up, you have the perfect excuse to make the switch, especially with this awesome discount.
Get the Polk Audio Signa S2 on Amazon for $149.99 (Save $49.96)
