Yes, you can enjoy 3D Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound without in-ceiling or upfiring speakers, and this 3.1-channel Sony soundbar, which is selling for a steep discount during Black Friday week, is a case in point.

On sale at Best Buy for $700—that’s $200 off—the Sony HT-Z9F soundbarRemove non-product link comes with a three-channel main unit and a wireless subwoofer, and it uses Sony’s Vertical Sound Engine technology to deliver 7.1.2-channel audio, which is perfect for movies and TV shows with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X soundtracks.

Equipped with a pair of HDMI inputs (most soundbars only give you one) plus 4K HDR (including Dolby Vision and HLG) video passthrough, the Sony HT-Z9F supports high-resolution audio as well as lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio sound formats.

The soundbar works with both Alexa and Google Assistant, and it also supports Bluetooth along with built-in Chromecast.
