Refurbished Sony HTS100F Sound Bar | $30 | eBay
If you’re looking for a straight-forward way to upgrade your home theater’s sound, a refurbished Sony HTS100F Sound Bar will cost you just $30 today. That’s a ridiculous deal, when you consider how bad sound is on most HDTVs nowadays. To be clear, this doesn’t have fancy features like a dedicated subwoofer, Atmos, or surround sound. But for less than $50, it’s a sound bargain.
It’s seller-refurbished, so it’s not ideal. But it’s a reputable source and could be worth the teensy risk.
