Vizio's new Dolby Atmos home theater sound system makes its debut at $500

Earlier this year, Vizio announced that it would begin offering Dolby Atmos and Google Chromecast audio support integrated into three new sound bars. While two of the sound bars have yet to see a release, the first has just been made available for order at select retailers such as Best Buy.

The first release from the new line is Vizio's 5.1.2-Channel Soundbar System. At the $500 price point, it's one of the more affordable Dolby Atmos sound bars on the market currently compared to options like Sony's HT-Z9F sound bar and the LG SJ9 sound bar. It features two upward-firing speakers that send sound above and around you for a more realistic surround sound experience, while its wireless subwoofer along with the five front-firing speakers help to balance the sound further.

The new sound bars also feature Google Assistant built-in for voice control, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Chromecast so you can stream your favorite tracks directly to the speakers. Their metal-finished woven covers provide a sleek look for your entertainment setup, and there are also one-touch controls on the sound bars themselves in case you don't have the remote or the Vizio SmartCast Mobile app handy.

The 5.1.2-Channel version of Vizio's Home Theater Sound System with Dolby Atmos is now available at Best Buy for $500; Sam's Club has it too with an exclusive $50 discount, though it's currently out of stock there. Soon enough, you'll also be able to locate 3.1.2 and 5.1.4-Channel versions priced at $800 and $1,000 respectively via Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart.
