This article will help you to make a buying decision if you want to buy the best soundbar under 20000.

If your TV supports Dolby Audio, Dolby Digital, and Dolby Atmos, then it’s good. I am sure you must be having the experience of a cinema hall. But if that is not the case, then stop compromising and buy a good Soundbar for an actual Cinematic experience.

But which Soundbar should you buy? This is exactly what I am going to tell you through this article. I will tell you about the best Soundbars between INR10,000 to INR20,000.

Friends all the Soundbars that I have mentioned, I have tested them by playing the same 2 audios tracks, and only on this basis, I have judged them and ranked them and following the same criterion, I will tell you about their Pros and Cons.

But before that, I want to tell you some important things regarding Soundbars, which are important for you to know. Upon entering this Budget range, you start experiencing a Balanced Sound, and not an Over-powered bass. If an over-powered bass is what you desire, then you must buy a Soundbar below INR10,000.

While comparing 2 Soundbars, never compare them based on their Sound Output, instead that, compare their Sound Signature and their Audio Quality.

Formats like Dolby Audio, Dolby Digital, and DTS X get their passthrough only with the HDMI ARC ports. And this why before buying any Soundbar, it is important to match the connectivity options of your TV with the connectivity options of your Soundbar.

If your TV supports Dolby Atmos and for that, you want to buy a Dolby Atmos Soundbar, that too within this budget, then this is not possible. The range of Dolby Atmos Soundbar starts from a minimum of INR30,000.

Some Soundbars come with Surround Channels whereas, for some Soundbars, it is necessary to purchase the Surround Channels separately. If your budget allows, then You must buy the Surround Channels separately because it will enhance the Sound Quality.
