Vizio SB36514-G6 36" 5.1.4 Channel Home Theater Sound System and Wireless Subwoofer with Dolby Atmos - $499 at Costco

Vizio 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos soundbar system features a 2 front upward firing speakers and 2 rear upward firing speakers to allow for Dolby Atmos. Subwoofer + Rear speakers connect wirelessly to main soundbar unit.

Reviews on this model are overall very strong. There is an older model that is only 5.1.2 (no rear upward firing speakers) that got mediocre reviews in large part due to software issues. This model seems to have solved those problems.

This went for $480 last Prime Day but I've rarely seen it discounted.

I have their 5.1.2 from two BFs ago and love it. I know that model gets a bit of hate due to its firmware issues but my experience has been rock solid.

I haven't tested the 5.1.4 but I know their rear upfiring speakers definitely add the extra oomph! This is probably as close to the lowest price you'll get on this set as you can...good deal!!

Real upward firing speakers were present in that model also. Also somewhat that 9.1 is misleading in title. It's 5. System not 9. System

Do you have any issues of the rear sub or speakers disconnecting or the visio going off intermittently that issue seems to plague the 5.1.2 series

Updated title to clarify. Receivers tend to count the height channels in the total (e.g. 9.2 rather than 5.2.4).

To clarify, there are 9 independent speakers (plus the sub), 4 of which are height channels via the upward firing speakers. I've adjusted the title to help make clearer.

I think the Black Friday deal you're talking about was the 5.1.2 system. There were not rear upward firing speakers in that, only front upward firing. Also the 5.1.2 system has had a lot of reports of software issues that caused frequent disconnections.

I've been tracking this system for while and I think has only been cheaper twice. $480 last Prime Day, and $385 for a blink-and-you-miss-it Lightning Deal on Black Friday.

Correct this model has extra upwards firing speakers in satellite. Earlier model has 2 upwards firing speakers only in soundbar. Extra two upward firing speakers in rear speakers must be fun for sure , not bad for $400 , will buy next BF

I had the original 5.1.2 and it was HORRIBLE! I upgraded to the 46" 5.1.4 and it was great but too powerful for my townhome. Even with the sub @ 0 the walls would slightly rumble. I ordered this on prime day last year for an incredible price and I love it. The rear height channels make a huge impact on atmos sound. You'd be surprised how much bass this 6" sub puts out. My set up sounds amazing and I've have no issues for the year I've had it. This is a great price.
