Back when soundbars first burst upon the mainstream market, they were criticized by installers, audiophiles and theater enthusiasts as poor performing products that sacrificed convenience at the price of quality. Today, however, those groups cannot levy that criticism on soundbars because today’s generation of products perform much better than previous ones.

CE Pro has rounded up 13 of the newest soundbars on the market and asked industry pros for their movie and music recommendations to demonstrate these products to consumers.

From films like “Battleship” and “Gravity” to music from The Beatles and Adele check out this slideshow to add to your demo collection and highlight the audio power of your soundbars.
