What customers say about "Key Specs"
Yamaha YAS-207BL Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual Black
  • Its bass extension boosts low bass levels for a remarkable powerful sound.
  • Powerful wireless subwoofer rocks.
  • It had a great sound and was well powered.
  • It sounds really fantastic at higher volumes, but at lower volumes certain frequencies noticeably clip in and out, which is annoying.
  • Yamaha quality, Almost perfect, but the low frequency crossover is right in the middle of the speech range... hearing voices pop in and out of the sub mid sentence is jarring.
  • Basically, the bass crossover frequency falls right smack in the middle of the frequencies used by dialogue voices.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Yamaha YAS-207BL Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual Black
  • Full size subwoofer that is awesome sounding.
  • I am very pleased with the sound production from this bar based on the price and size.
  • In my moderately sized room, the sound bar can easily be too loud, and produces a reasonable amount of bass.
  • Did not have room for my full-size stereo and speaker set up and this has proven itself to be the perfect addition to my television.
  • Best for a small to medium size room.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Yamaha YAS-207BL Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual Black
  • You have to connect to Bluetooth and then you can fire up the app and select Clear Voice and 3d Surround and you will be all set!
  • It transmits 4K HDR video. There is an ARC-HDMI output jack.
  • My only let down and reason for 3 stars is because the subwoofer sounds under powered while playing music thru Bluetooth.
  • The only drawback that I see - lack of Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Did NOT come with a HDMI cable.
