To experience true surround sound on a soundbar-based home entertainment setup, you should go for one that supports 5.1 channels. A 5.1 soundbar will come with a centre channel that can improve dialogue clarity as well. With the front channels integrated into the soundbar, you can get more space around your TV for other accessories or even more speakers. Additionally, with Dolby Audio support, the right content can feel highly immersive on such soundbars. If you have an existing home entertainment system, check for the compatibility requirements before buying a new soundbar. Here are some models available on Amazon which offer a great mix of powerful features and useful specifications.
