What raises the Sonos Playbar above other soundbars is its connectivity: In addition to elevating your flatscreen's one-dimensional audio with its array of nine built-in speakers and amplifiers, the 35.4-inch system streams content directly from your iTunes library and online services like Pandora. It also pairs with additional speakers in the Sonos ecosystem that can be placed all over your home. Best of all, you can control it from a smartphone or tablet. [$699; sonos.com]
