Polk Audio Command Bar
Save $100: Polk Audio’s Command Bar is one of the best entry-level soundbars available, and it’s on sale right now. The normally $300 soundbar (which comes with a wireless subwoofer) is $100 off if you shop at either Best Buy or Amazon. Part of its allure, other than improving your TV’s sound, is that Command Bar has built-in Amazon Alexa — similar to the Sonos Beam. This means you can use your voice to do things like raise or lower the TV volume, play music from Spotify or Pandora or control the smart home devices in the rest of your house, should you have any. Additionally, you can integrate the Polk CommandBar into an Alexa Multiroom Group if you own other Amazon Echo devices. Just say “Alexa, play music everywhere,” and all your Echo devices and the Command bar will play in unison.
