Folks normally wait until Black Friday to do their most important holiday gift shopping, but things are a bit different this time around. This year, retailers are unveiling their best holiday deals weeks in advance and Target is one of the first to roll out the red carpet.

And right now, one of the biggest deals of the event is the new VIZIO V-Series 2.0 Compact Soundbar that’s on sale for just $50 — that’s 50% off its original retail price!

Target, which released a ton of early Black Friday deals on Oct. 31, already marked down VIZIO’s newest and most compact soundbar release to date by $50.

You’re likely already familiar with VIZIO’s reputation as one of the leading brands in the soundbar space. For example, the best-selling premium VIZIO Elevate 5.1.4 Home Theater Soundbar continues to top lists as the best option with Dolby Atmos.

This new release boasts one of the most compact soundbar designs you’ll find today. Though thin and minimal, this soundbar packs a punch that rivals some of the largest and most expensive options on the market.

In case you’re unfamiliar with how soundbars work, here’s a brief explanation.

Soundbars provide a richer, more robust sound output from your TV and usually come in a variety of “channels,” indicated in decimal format. The “2.0,” for example, in the new VIZIO V-Series 2.0 Compact Soundbar refers to the number of channels and subwoofers included with the device.

So, for this soundbar, the number before the dot refers to the left and right speakers (two) built in the device and the number to the right refers to the number of subwoofers (0). For additional reference, the VIZIO Elevate 5.1.4 Home Theater Soundbar comes with one wireless subwoofer for added bass.

The newly released VIZIO V-Series 2.0 Compact Soundbar is currently on sale for just $49.99 at both Target and Amazon. It features a sleek, rounded all-black finish with an easy-to-clean textured surface and boasts DTS Virtual:X, a feature that guarantees room-filling, floor-to-ceiling sound.

The two full-range speakers built into the soundbar also provide crisp, coherent sound that eliminates the need for a subwoofer.

Although this soundbar is new to the market, shoppers are already singing its praises, with one admitting that she’s absolutely “blown away!”

“[I] purchased this when it was on a special for half off,” the five-star reviewer wrote. “It makes a world of difference in the sound. It’s crisp, loud, and has the right amount of bass. I love that it connects with Bluetooth to our Alexa Echo.”

Another impressed shopper added that “this soundbar packs a punch” and is “so user-friendly” and easy to set up.
