Editor’s Choice; This Surround System Delivers Blockbuster Sound at a Matinee Price

Vizio’s 2.1-channel V-Series soundbar is one of our favorites under $200, so when we heard you could get the 5.1-channel V51-H6 (available at Amazon for $194.98) for almost the same price, we jumped at the opportunity to test it out. Much to our delight, everything that’s great about the 2.1-channel version—robust sound, easy setup, and plenty of customization—holds true here.

The V51-H6's main draw is that you’re getting a heaping helping of speakers—a three-channel soundbar, two surrounds, and a hefty subwoofer—but the soundbar is also more than the sum of its parts. Not only is this one of the most affordable surround systems around, but its software is also robust and flexible enough to allow for a deep level of customization, should you so choose. It's also easy to set up and start using if you don't want to fuss with anything.
