Soundbars are a dime a dozen these days but finding one that’s compatible with the Google Assistant and features quality audio at a fair price can be a bit of a crapshoot. Sure, you could spend thousands and get an ultra-premium 5.1 surround sound setup but if you’re like me, that’s overkill for the modest size of my living room. If you just want a good sounding product with some smart home compatibility, look no further than Vizio.
The Vizio SmartCast soundbar with its accompanying slim subwoofer is the perfect addition to almost any home theater setup. It features 3.1 channel DTS TruSurround and the slim wireless subwoofer can easily be placed in the discrete location of your choice to create a theater experience for your movie binging pleasure. With SmartCast, you can easily cast and control your all of your favorite content without lifting a finger and right now, the 3.1-Channel soundbar with wireless subwoofer is on sale at Best Buy for only $179. That’s a savings of $120 on an impressive budget-level audio system.

It also features SmartCast and adds two, wired satellite speakers for a full surround sound experience.
