While most people might have a hard time justifying spending $2,000 on a soundbar, if you were planning to go big on a full surround system but want a simpler setup, the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama could be the answer. The Panorama manages to produce a nice balance of frequencies with room-filling sound that comes close to duplicating the effect of a full 5.1 surround system. It's also stylish, and as easy to set up as any other soundbar. If you're looking for a more affordable upgrade to your TV's built-in speakers, check out the Yamaha YSP-2200 or Vizio VHT510. You won't get the full 5.1 surround experience the Panorama delivers, but you'll save at least a few hundred dollars.
