The Sonos Arc sees a rare, $50 discount at Wellbots

Sonos products are easy to sell, if the price is right. Like most products in the Sonos lineup, the Sonos Arc features a clean design and excellent sound quality, the latter of which is evident while listening to everything from Dolby Atmos movies to the lush sounds of The National’s most recent album, It’s easy to find me. What’s more, the all-in-one soundbar includes built-in support for Alexa and Google Assistant, as well as Apple’s AirPlay 2. Granted, you’ll need a recent TV that supports Atmos over HDMI ARC to truly unlock the Arc’s potential, but if you have one, it’s a great way to future-proof your home theater setup. The white version of the Sonos Arc, which is normally $800, is on sale at Wellbots for $50 with promo code DADMUSIC. Check out our review.

With Dolby Atmos support and plenty of features, the Sonos Arc is a forward-thinking soundbar that can trounce any TV — and many dedicated speakers — when it comes to sound quality. Wellbots is currently offering $50 off the Arc using a promo code DADMUSIC.

As far as tablets go, Apple’s iPad lineup doesn’t really have much in the way of competition. There are some competent Android tablets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 and Amazon’s Fire HD 10, but none of them feel premium. Apple’s iPad Air does, however, and it’s not just because of the bevy of attractive colors. The fourth-generation model supports USB-C as well as the Apple Pencil 2. It also features a 1080p display and an A14 Bionic processor that should provide enough power for most users. It’s not going to outperform, say, the M1-equipped iPad Pro, but it also doesn’t need to. Amazon and Best Buy are selling the 64GB 2020 iPad Air for $500, matching its low price. Check out our review.

If you’re looking to stock up on a few items before the school year, eBay is currently having a sale on all things refurbished. For a limited time, you can save on headphones, laptops, and a host of notable tech, including Acer’s impressive Nitro XV272U. The 27-inch, QHD gaming monitor — which we’ve highlighted before — features an IPS display and 1440p resolution, along with a 144Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync support, a technology that steadies gameplay and helps prevent tearing. It also features a 1ms response speed and a variety of ports, including four USB Type A 3.0 ports, two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort.

The Nitro XV272U is currently available from Acer (via eBay) for $250, and, like every item featured in eBay’s ongoing sale, the monitor comes with a 30-day return policy and a two-year warranty, something you often don’t get with refurbished products.
