Apple's HomePod makes for an excellent home theater speaker, but to take advantage of its capabilities, you need the Apple TV 4K. In our recent review, we hailed the Apple TV 4K as being the "best Apple TV ever made" thanks to Dolby Atmos support and the ability to set the HomePod as the default speaker for all of your movies, shows, and games.
