4K is a specification usually associated with the visual medium. So, what should you make of it when you see it attached to a soundbar? A 4K soundbar has both HDMI in and HDMI out, which lets you route any video feed, including 4K, through the soundbar to the television. Of course, this does not impact the visual quality you get, but it does reduce clutter around your home entertainment setup. This lets you enjoy your favourite movies, shows and console games without having to deal with a mess of wires. Here are some soundbars available on Amazon with 4K passthrough which also feature a good combination of specifications and features.
