Set this compact, Bluetooth-enabled sound bar beneath your TV to enliven movie sound effects or stream songs from your smartphone
VIZIO 28” 2.0-Channel Sound Bar (Manufacturer Refurbished)
This sleek sound bar adds a little oomph to your home theater setup without adding a bunch of bulky speaker boxes and cable clutter. The sound bar’s slim design fits neatly beneath your TV, while filling the room with immersive stereo sound.
Detailed Sound, Minimal Clutter
The 2.0-channel setup elevates your TV’s audio to give you an experience that’s closer to that of surround sound. Laterally placed speakers produce wider distribution and more realistic depth, creating a sense that the action is unfolding around you. With only one component to install, the 2.0-channel setup strikes a much cleaner look than full-blown home theater systems.
Bluetooth: Stream Wireless Music, Internet Radio, and Podcasts
Bluetooth lets you stream wireless music from an enabled mobile device, leaving you free to mingle with guests, clean the house, or do yoga—all without interrupting the music. Moreover, Bluetooth plays your favorite songs over the system’s speakers, filling the room with richer sound than most smartphones, tablets, or laptops can.

Launching in 2002, when rival companies had been selling TVs for decades, Vizio may be a relative newcomer to the TV market, but it hit the ground running. By 2007, it sold the most LCD TVs in America. Its runaway success is thanks in large part to its bread-and-butter HDTV, the LED-backlit 1080p set that can be found in most living rooms. Yet the company also takes chances on the latest technologies. In 2015, for instance, it launched what is arguably one of the most high-end sets ever produced—the $130,000 Reference Series, a 120” 4K set with support for more than one billion colors and integrated 5.1-channel surround sound. While the hefty price tag will deter most TV shoppers, Vizio will inevitably find a way to pack the cutting-edge technologies into a more consumer-friendly set—the approach to TV-making that brought it success in the first place.
