What customers say about "Key Specs"
Yamaha YAS-203 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Wireless Subwoofer
  • The subwoofer has a separate volume control, so you can easily adjust the low frequency booming if you risk bothering the neighbors or sleeping kids.
  • Lower Range Base Frequencies are good and Clear Voice feature is also useful.
  • The frequency handled by the unit is really the normal bass sound.
  • No dedicated center channel, and no separate high frequency drivers.
  • Sub could be a bit more powerful (although it seems to be improving).
  • The subwoofer is not as powerful as my last system from Sony even at its highest setting but the sound is much better balanced and dialogue is better.
Klipsch R-10B Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer (Satin Black)
  • The sound is well balanced across the frequency range, but since the subwoofer has a volume control, the low end can be adjusted to your preference.
  • I have the woofer turned all the way up and positioned the box in a corner to improve bass response but was hoping it would be better.
  • Powerful and well made product, easy to setup and connections are simple that even a 5 year old can set it up.
  • This minimalist sound system will blow you away both with how crystal clear the sound is and how unexpectedly loud and powerful it can be when you crank it up.
  • Even when the sound bar is powered down, it will power up and try to pair with any blue tooth whether your want it to or not.

What customers say about "Features"
Yamaha YAS-203 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Wireless Subwoofer

  • I am impressed by the ease of installation and the quality of the sound.
  • The sound bar itself is nice and solid, looks goods and easy to hook up.
  • Lower Range Base Frequencies are good and Clear Voice feature is also useful.
  • Everything sounds good except voices are a little muffled when watching movies through the TV or blue ray player, even when I switch it to the clear voice.
  • Couldn't find way an Easy way to access EQ to change such simple controls such as Bass and Treble levels.
Klipsch R-10B Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer (Satin Black)
  • It's super easy to install and I think most would agree that the sound quality couldn't be beat for the money.
  • This has really enhance your TV viewing. With movies it's like sitting in a theater. With sports games, it's like being in the broadcast booth.
  • It is being used in a large room and the sound is great. An even bigger plus for us is how much it enhances the dialog from the TV.
  • The Yamaha's remote is basic, but 1000x better than Klipsch's, which is a joke. Basic volume buttons are a chore to use, and you'll use those with high frequency.
  • The subwoofer is weak and doesn't handle music with heavy bass - it just rattles like it is underpowered.

Klipsch R-10B Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer (Satin Black)
  • I connected it to a 9 year old Sony TV via the optical cable provided and moved the sub woofer around a couple of times to test for the best sound that suited me.
  • Bluetooth connection to my iPhone 7+ is a little sketchy, but the workaround is to just stream my music through the TV first via AppleTV.
  • Also has bluetooth input so you can stream audio from your phone or any other bluetooth enabled device. Very easy to connect.
  • I just purchased the unit and used digital output to connect to my LG tv. And everything works amazingly.
  • The final issue is with the remote which loses its connectivity with the bar periodically and unpredictably and basically is worthless.
