What customers say about "Key Specs"
Yamaha YAS-207 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Bluetooth & DTS Virtual:X 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.
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.
