What soundbar should I buy?

Episode 1098 (2:09:31)

Roger from Torrance, CA

Roger is eager for the Vizio Reference Series. Scott says that everyone is looking forward to that new line of 4K UHD TVs with high dynamic range. But he thinks it'll be towards the end of the year. Roger also bought a Panasonic VT60, but the sound is terrible.

Roger saw a list of the top sound bars rated by Consumer Reports, and wanted to see if Scott had tested any of them. The top three were the Sonos Playbar, the Samsung HW850 and the Sony HTST7. Scott says the Sony HTST7 is highly regarded. David also points out that Consumer Reports tends to put more cost conscious products higher than more expensive ones that may sound better.
