Vizio M-Series 5.1 Soundbar review: Good sound at a solid price

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that watching movies at home can be something of a nightmare when it comes to audio.

Sonos Arc Review: Dolby Atmos in the soundbar we’ve been waiting for

The problem with making things look easy, Sonos has discovered, is that peoples' wish-lists only ever get longer. The new Sonos Arc is a textbook example: on the face of it a simple response to the question "Where's the Sonos Dolby Atmos soundbar?" it nonetheless required a whole new platform and, as a side-effect, leaving some of the company's earliest adopters peeved.

As TV sets get thinner and thinner, the task of providing quality, immersive audio falls on external speakers instead. But while woofers and sub-woofers are most consumers go-to solutions, many of them clash with the elegance or simplicity of thin TVs, especially those mounted on walls that seem to disappear into them. That's where soundbars come in and one of the newest entry to that market is one of the speaker market's oldest players, Bang & Olufsen and its Beosound Stage bar.
