You won’t have to pay a high price to put Vizio’s unusual Elevate soundbar under your TV. Amazon sells the Elevate 5.1.4 channel for $ 800, or $ 200 below its official price. This is the lowest price we have seen since november, and the lowest price Amazon has set so far. You might want to act quickly if you’re interested – this is a limited-time deal that may expire soon.
The Elevate is a relatively rare high-end soundbar from Vizio, and is distinguished by speakers that turn upward whenever you play Dolby Atmos or DTS: X content. You can get vertical sound when you want immersion, but you won’t have to give out when listening to conventional stereo or surround sound. It is also connected with support for Chromecast and Bluetooth.
As usual, the Elevate’s main challenge is simply the abundance of competing Dolby Atmos compatible bars. Vizio’s design leans towards the bass which may sound good for blockbuster movies and games, but might not help much with the soft-spoken conversations of a period drama. At this price, however, the rise may be an easier sell.
