Unless you want to cough up thousands of dollars for an ultra high-end TV, the sound from the built-in speakers on your television is going to be terrible. There’s just no way around it. You need external speakers if you want good sound, and sound bars are the simplest solution. They can get pretty pricey too, of course, but we’ve got a terrific option for you to consider. The AmazonBasics 2.0 Channel Bluetooth Sound Bar is ridiculously inexpensive at just $69.99, yet it delivers great sound that will be exponentially better than the speakers in your TV. It’s not a $700 Sonos sound bar https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074WC1K9S, but it sounds way better than you would expect from a $70 speaker.
