Deals on Home Stereo Bookshelf Speakers
Three great sounding bookshelf stereo speaker systems from three of our very favorite brands, these all offer incredible performance in their respective price ranges, and incredible bargains at their Amazon Black Friday / Cyber Monday discount prices.
With such high power handling capacity, the Polk Audio T15 bookshelf speakers put out an awesome amount of volume for their size, but what is really amazing is the sound quality – deep bass, smooth midrange and sweet, extended highs – perfect for any kind of music.
Normal Price: $99.00 a pair
Amazon Sale Price: $59.00 a pair
The brilliant compression horn tweeter gives these Klipsch R-41M speakers that legendary Klipsch sound, as well as plenty of efficiency for small amplifiers and plenty of power handling for even the biggest systems. Serious power and beautiful sound!
Normal Price: $229.00 a pair
Amazon Sale Price: $139.40 a pair
One of the very finest sounding bookshelf speakers available at any price, with truly high resolution reproduction of detail, dynamics, space and timbre, the KEF Q-350 speakers are an amazing bargain at normal retail price, and when they (rarely) go on sale they are an absolute steal. A no-compromise speaker system for the best listening experience.
Normal Price: $699.99 a pair
Amazon Sale Price: $499.98 a pair
Deals on Home Theater Speakers
Nothing is as wonderful as the immersive and powerful experience of a good home theater system, and these three great sale items from the 2020 Amazon Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales will bring your home theater enjoyment to a new level – and they are all amazing bargains at these discount prices!
The superb Polk sound, long beloved and often (if not successfully) copied, is absolutely perfect for a full and convincing home theater experience, and this reasonably priced Polk 5.1 home theater speaker system with powered subwoofer is a great example – deep, powerful bass, smooth sound but with tons of detail, and wholly convincing, seamlessly three dimensional imaging.
Normal Price: $395.00
Amazon Sale Price: $281.00
Famous for advanced technology, material quality and beautiful designs, Samsung proves here – with their surprisingly powerful HW-Q67CT home theater speaker system – that they are also capable of producing some great sounding speakers. One of the best budget home theater speaker systems we know, and pretty much unbeatable at this bargain price.
Normal Price: $415.00
Amazon Sale Price: $299.99
One of the finest home theater systems available – at least without spending thousands and thousands of dollars – and equal to or better than some famous theater speaker systems costing many times as much, the Klipsch Black Reference is a steal at its normal retail price – but at almost 60 percent off? We don’t know where this absurd price came from, but please don’t hesitate!
Normal Price: $999.00
Amazon Sale Price: $408.00
Deals on Home Office Speakers
Since we are all spending so much more time at home these days, and especially in our home offices, we here at Speakergy thought it would make sense to include a category for home office speakers – and we were just amazed at the great deals we found on the Amazon website – hurray for Black Friday!
We’re not entirely sure what the intriguing-sounding phrase “Far-Field Drivers” actually means, but we do know that these are absolutely amazing sounding speakers by any standard, and for their size and their price they are almost unbelievable. And a hassle-free single cable hook-up makes them perfect for any desk.
Normal Price: $24.99
Amazon Sale Price: $19.99
For people who really like to rock out when they are working, the Edifier R980T speakers are a great choice, and a great gift idea. They simply plug into the headphone jack of any PC, and with 24 watts of power they can play loud with no distortion or strain, yet their excellent engineering, material and construction quality means they sound equally good at even very low levels. Highly recommended!
Normal Price: $69.99
Amazon Sale Price: $59.49
While not specifically meant as a home office speaker, we’ve found that the beautiful Bose 300 smart speaker looks and sounds great on a desktop. And with compatibility with Alexa, Google Home and other smart systems, the Bose 300 can play your favorite music streams, find specific songs or genres, and even attend to other tasks for you with a minimum of effort or distraction. O brave new world, that has such speakers in ‘t!
Normal Price: $259.00
Amazon Sale Price: $199.00
Deals on Smart Speakers
If you haven’t gotten on board the speeding smart speaker train yet, it is really about time, and this holiday season is the perfect time to get going. We are happy to share a remarkable deal on the latest Amazon echo dot, a substantial discount on the superb Sonos Move, and a Bose speaker so nice we’ve included it twice (see also just above, in the Home Office Speakers section).
Small but powerful, the 4th generation Amazon echo dot smart speaker is one of the latest members of the ever-growing Amazon Alexa smart home system – one of the most complete and intelligent systems available. And, the wee dot also sounds great!
Normal Price: $49.99
Amazon Sale Price: $28.99
We’ve already included this superb sounding speaker as a great gift idea for the home office, but it is equally at home anywhere in the house. With compatibility with Alexa, Google Home and other smart systems, as well as Bluetooth, Apple Air and Wi-Fi connectivity, this is one of the most versatile and useful smart speakers currently available, and a real hi-fi listening experience.
Normal Price: $259.00
Amazon Sale Price: $199.00
Many people wonder if they can have all the benefits of a next-gen smart speaker – voice activated smart home management, internet research, phone calls, messages and correspondence, alarms and reminders, etc – and still have audiophile sound quality. We have to imagine that if they were to listen to the Sonos Move for even a minute or two they’d immediately stop wondering – a fully advanced and capable smart speaker with truly engaging and musical high fidelity sound, which looks, feels and sounds like it should be much more expensive.
Normal Price: $399.00
Amazon Sale Price: $299.00
Deals on Headphones
Our last category in this 2020 Buyer’s Guide of best Amazon sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday is headphones – a really ideal gift for any music lover or gamer. And so we offer an absolute steal on one of the best pairs of gaming headphones on the market, a pair of superb true audiophile headphones from one of the most respected manufacturer in the industry, and an incredible deal on one of the most popular wireless headphones for younger listeners.
Razer Kraken is the acknowledged leader in gaming headphones, and their RZ-04 lightweight gamers are a good reason why. Light and comfortable for even the most extended gaming sessions, incredibly detailed and with a spookily holographic soundstage, and featuring a superb noise-free microphone, these Krakens can’t be beat – especially at this price!
Normal Price: $79.99
Amazon Sale Price: $49.99
Few companies in the audio industry enjoy the kind of near-unanimous respect and consistently high ratings and reviews that you see for Audio Technica and their headphones. The ATH-M300x is a true Audio Technica product in this respect (with a nearly 5 star rating on Amazon with almost 5,000 reviews!) and also in its beautiful, detailed and accurate sound quality. Nothing we know comes even close at this price.
Normal Price: $99.00
Amazon Sale Price: $69.00
We often hear parents say they have no idea what to get their teenage kids without looking totally lame. Our first piece of advice is: don’t use phrases like “totally lame,” and our second is: Skullcandy. Any kid, no matter how cool, will be genuinely surprised and thrilled!
Normal Price: $114.99
Amazon Sale Price: $79.99
