As TVs become more and more high-tech, they’re also getting thinner and thinner, leaving less and less room for speakers. If you’re unwilling to sacrifice powerful, immersive sound for a bigger, more high-tech screen, a great soundbar is the perfect solution. The Yamaha 209-YAS soundbar is one that will certainly fit the bill, and right now, it’s 14% off.

Offering great value for the money at even its regular price of $349.95, this device, which is currently selling for $299.95, is a bargain. Its clear, punchy sound and impressive features, along with the smooth and powerful bass response of the included wireless sub, made it an easy winner in our tests. In fact, it’s easily the best soundbar available right now when it comes to great sound and affordability and hands-down the best soundbar you can buy for under $500.

The set-up really is easy: just plug the soundbar into your TV via HDMI or Optical cable and you’re off to the races. The sub, which adds deep bass for when you’re watching high-intensity action films or playing video games, will automatically connect and can be placed virtually anywhere in the room thanks to its compact size.
This device’s cinema-like sound is further enhanced by the inclusion of DTS Virtual: X virtual 3D surround sound, a technology that creates the sensation of having sound coming from all around you—including from above—from just the one, single speaker.
With Alexa built right in, you’ll be able to control it using just your voice (not to mention any other compatible devices in the home), while its Bluetooth compatibility can be used to stream music from your phone, computer or other model device—even when the TV is off. Essentially, you can do almost everything with the YAS-209 that you can do with an Amazon Echo ($89.99).
Whether it’s for your primary viewing room, the bedroom, den, office, basement, kids’ room, or other room in the home, the Yamaha YAS-209 isn’t a soundbar you’ll want to pass up—especially with this Amazon deal.
