You can save $200 on Vizio’s Dolby Atmos home theater system and up to $30 on Apple AirPods
 
 
Now that we’re well into October, Black Friday 2019 looms on the horizon. It’s likely that we’ll see some of the best deals on popular tech products happen in the next few weeks. And judging by a few of today’s deals, that’s already happening a little bit.

Vizio’s high-end 46-inch 5.1.4 home theater system is $200 off of its usual price at Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy. $799 might be more than what you were considering to spend on speakers for your living room, but there’s one big reason why it might be worth it: they support Dolby Atmos.

Both the soundbar and the satellite speakers have forward- and upward-firing speakers to give a more cinematic, immersive sound experience. Breaking down the "5.1.4,” this home theater system is comprised of five forward-firing speakers (three in the soundbar, two behind you) one wireless subwoofer, and four height channels created by upward-firing speakers bouncing off of your ceiling.

I tested out the much smaller (and cheaper) Vizio 36-inch 5.1.2 Atmos-ready soundbar when the Apple TV 4K gained Dolby Atmos support. The effect is impressive, even with this smaller soundbar, but if you have a massive TV, you’re probably going to want the bigger, more capable home theater system that best matches it.
