Tired of that tiny, distorted and generally otherwise underwhelming sound emanating from your stock TV speakers, but hate the thought of wiring up surround sound? Go for a sound bar. The newly updated Boston Acoutics TVee Model 25 ($350) provides an enveloping audio experience without the fuss at an affordable price. Consisting of only a sound bar and wireless subwoofer, this 150-watt 2-piece ensemble uses Dolby Digital technology and Boston Acoustics Digitally Optimized Virtual Surround to deliver room-filling virtual surround sound far better than any stock flatscreen. Each component is individually powered by built-in amplifiers, meaning there’s no receiver to buy and more money to burn on Blu-rays.
