Deal | Sony HT-X8500 soundbar with Dolby Atmos gets big 50% discount on Amazon for Black Friday
Thanks to many decent television deals that are currently available as part of the ongoing Black Friday sales event, lots of shoppers are probably contemplating an all-around upgrade of their aging home theater setup. Since a brand-new OLED TV is just one part of the equation, a budget-friendly Dolby Atmos soundbar like the Sony HT-X8500 can also be a worthy investment.
Fortunately, Amazon is now granting an additional Black Friday discount on the aforementioned HT-X8500 from Sony, which is a standalone 2.1-channel soundbar with support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio tracks. After a considerable 50 percent or US$202 markdown, this wallet-friendly audio system is now available for US$198 including free shipping. This deal matches the price of a very popular offer from late September, and even more importantly, Camelcamelcamel's price history indicates that the Sony HT-X8500 has never been cheaper on Amazon.
In addition to the two integrated subwoofer, the Dolby Atmos-capable HT-X8500 comes with two HDMI ports that can be used to pass through a 4K HDR signal, but the audio system can also connect wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0. Alternatively, television owners can fall back on a traditional optical audio cable. Moreover, Sony's so-called "Vertical Surround Engine" is supposed to simulate a 7.1.2 surround experience, which is a nice bonus for home theater fans who can't accommodate a true surround system with separate rear satellite speakers. All in all, this Black Friday soundbar deal offers a respectable bang for the buck that is not typically the strong suit of the Japanese tech behemoth.
