Let’s hear it for soundbars: they offer a cheap and easy way to upgrade the built in audio of the best 4K TVs, and the better ones add features like Dolby Atmos processing, a separate wireless subwoofer and surround sound speakers, plus up-firing speakers to convey overhead effects in Atmos soundtracks – something they do by bouncing the sound off the ceiling. 

A few soundbar systems like LG’s S95QR, big brother to the S80QY that TechRadar reviewed, pack all the features listed above, delivering a whopping 9.1.5 channels of audio. But the S95QR costs $1,800, and at that price level you really should be considering a separate speaker system instead.
