No desktop PC setup is complete without a decent set of speakers. And while televisions technically have built-in speakers, since they’ve gotten thinner than an emaciated flamingo, those speakers kind of suck. So a good soundbar addition is also an essential part of your living room. If you need any kind of speaker, you’re in luck: Amazon’s October 1st coming on October 11th. There are plenty of deals to be had on what Amazon is calling the Prime Early Access Sale.Desktop speakers don’t have a huge price fluctuation and don’t come in annual waves like CPUs or laptops – the same speaker that was great in 2017 is still great in 2022 and is probably still on sale.
The TV soundbars are a little more seasonal in their updates, but then again, buying a design that’s a few years old doesn’t really mean you’re missing out on anything, except perhaps a hefty retail price. As with most consumer electronics, patience is a virtue if you want to close a deal.
You’ll need an Amazon Prime membership to get the best deals on Amazon, of course – here’s how to get it for free. As other retailers are piggybacking on Amazon, we’ve included all the good speaker deals we could find.

Just like the original Prime Day (Prime Day Prime?), there will be plenty of deals leading up to the main sale, and Amazon’s competitors will also get in on the action. We’ll be on the lookout for discounts across the web until the two-day event. Offers from competitors such as Best Buy, Newegg, and Walmart generally do not require the store’s free shipping subscription.
