No desktop PC setup is complete without a decent set of speakers. And while TVs technically have speakers built-in, ever since they got thinner than an emaciated flamingo, those speakers have kind of sucked. So, a good soundbar add-on is an essential part of your living room, too. If you need either speaker type, you’re in luck: Amazon’s October Prime Day is here. There are plenty of deals to be had in what Amazon is calling its Prime Early Access Sale, which runs through Oct 12.
Desktop speakers don’t have a huge amount of fluctuation in price, and they don’t come in yearly waves like CPUs or laptops—the same speaker that was great in 2017 is still great in 2022, and probably still on sale.
TV soundbars are a little more seasonal in their updates, but again, buying a design that’s a couple of years old really doesn’t mean you’re missing anything, except maybe a high retail price. As with most consumer electronics, patience is a virtue if you’re looking to score a deal.
You’ll need an Amazon Prime subscription to score the best deals on Amazon, of course—here’s how to get it for free.
