While other companies like SonosLG, and Samsung are producing great Dolby Atmos soundbars of their own, no one has minimized the price of admission quite like Vizio. Debuting in 2018, the SB36512-F6 offers a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos configuration—not to mention WiFi, Bluetooth, and support for multiroom audio—for less than some competing 2.1 soundbars.
