Vizio has unveiled three Amazon Prime Day soundbar deals to coincide with its TV deals, including $300 off its flagship system the Elevate.
The biggest saving of the sale is $300 off the Dolby Atmos-capable Elevate P514a. The Elevate is a full 5.1.4 system that has unique revolving height speakers — and it sounds great for the money. If you want an Atmos soundbar right now, this is the best price you’ll see: Nothing else at $700 will have rear speakers or the same level of performance. The Elevate will go on sale for 12 hours from 9 a.m. PT (noon ET) on Tuesday.
Also on offer is the company’s step-down Atmos system, the M512a, which is also highly recommended (a CNET Editors’ Choice, no less) and available for $379 ($121 off). Like the Elevate, this is a full-surround system yet it lacks the second set of upfiring speakers (though you don’t really need that). The deal will be available all Prime Day.
Lastly, Vizio is lopping $50 off the best-selling soundbar in the US (according to NPD), the V51. It’s the step-up unit from our sub-$200 favorite, the V21. Yet the V51 is now roughly the same price as the V21. The biggest difference? Surround speakers. Bonus.
