Yamaha's YAS-101 is a great budget sound bar with an excellent design and a helpful feature for dealing with remote signals, although it's light on connectivity.

Good bang for buck, looks nice, but don’t ditch your surround speakers since this won’t be able to match or replace that audio experience.
