Vizio's Elevate is more than just a soundbar — it's one of the best $1,000 Dolby Atmos home theater systems you can buy

Steven Cohen

The Vizio Elevate is a good buy for anyone who wants a genuine 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos home theater system under $1,000. 

Piecing together an equivalent package with separate speakers and an AV receiver is basically impossible in this price range. In fact, most 9.2 channel receivers — which is what you'd need to power 5.1.4 speakers — cost at least $1,000 on their own.

If you have that kind of cash, you can configure a larger speaker setup that sounds better than the Elevate. But, that kind of investment simply isn't realistic for everyone. Conversely, you can find plenty of smaller and cheaper soundbars, but they just don't offer the level of immersion you get with the Elevate. 

The Elevate is designed for home theater fans who want to spend less and save a little space without losing out on a full Dolby Atmos surround sound experience. And in that sense, it delivers exceptional value and performance.
