>Creative Stage >Best soundbar under $100 > Sarah Tew/CNET

The Creative Stage offers everything you need for sound on a smaller TV or gaming system: HDMI, a separate subwoofer and a clear display. It also helps that the sound is light years ahead of other systems at the $100 mark.  Read our Creative Stage review.

The Vizio V21 is a 2.1-channel soundbar which offers a host of connections including HDMI. Stepping up to $200 gets you better sound than the Creative can muster plus a wireless subwoofer. No more wires trailing across the room!  Read our Vizio V21 review.

>Sonos One >Best multiroom wireless speaker > Sarah Tew/CNET > ED I T O R S C H O I C E Nov 2017

The Sonos One has been around for a little while now but it's so versatile that I've seen it anywhere from living rooms to shops to restaurants. For $200 it offers excellent sound, great multiroom capabilities and the choice of either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant onboard voice control, and it's AirPlay compatible, too.

>Fluance RT82 >Best affordable turntable > Sarah Tew/CNET

The Fluance RT8X range offers excellent value for vinyl fans, with the RT82 sitting right in the sweet spot. It includes convenience features like a speed switch, height adjustable feet and auto-stop. In our breakdown of five $300 turntables, the Fluance came out on top. It sounds great and it's built to last. Read more.

>Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2 >Best bookshelf speakers under $400 > Sarah Tew/CNET

The Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2 speakers offer a taste of the high end in a relatively affordable bookshelf model. They offer a tidy build, front-firing reflex ports for better flexibility and a detailed, enjoyable performance from movies and TV. Partner it with a high quality amp or receiver for the best results. Read our Elac Debut 2.0 B6.2 review.

>Vizio SB36512-F6 >Best Atmos soundbar > Sarah Tew/CNET > ED I T O R S C H O I C E Jun 2019

When the Vizio SB36512-F6 came out it proved that you didn't need to spend a grand to get an Atmos soundbar, you only needed half that. Unlike the still-great Sonos Arc, the Vizio includes both a wireless subwoofer and dedicated rears for the best surround experience.  Read our Vizio SB36512-F6 review.

>Sony STR-DN1080 >Our favorite receiver (that's in stock) > Sarah Tew/CNET

The  Onkyo TX-NR696 may be the best receiver of 2020, but... it's out of stock. In the meantime, another long-time favorite of CNET's, the Sony STR-DN1080, is still available and offers great sound quality as well. It may not have the latest 8K-ready features, but with Dolby Atmos and Chromecast streaming it has what most people really need.  Read our Sony STR-DN1080 review.
