Slim design fits nicely under most bigger TVs. Read Yamaha YAS-207 review and find out even more features of this soundbar.
Yamaha system is well built and feel sturdy. Its design very attracts with its minimalism. The subwoofer is powerful and hearty sounding. The remote control that comes with the unit is fine, while the most soundbar remotes look cheapy. The system with its slim design fits nicely under most bigger TVs. The main speaker is deeper in the device - it makes it visually more compact, but it saves space for drivers and electronics. It looks both strictly and comfortably: on the perimeter, it is decorated with a fabric, therefore it seems soft. Matte plastic is only in the lower part of the front panel and behind the device where the LED indicators are located.
Among Yamaha YAS-207 specs are very rich sound in 3D Surround mode, both for music and movies. It is better to install the DTS Virtual:X firmware update from Yamaha official website.
DTS Virtual: X provides “visualization” of sound in several dimensions and supports any input source from dual-channel stereo to 11.1 (configuration 7.1.4). The new processing technology allows you to support one or more functions at the same time: virtual upper speakers, virtual surround sound and bass boost. Of course, the soundbar is able to handle even simpler surround formats.
Compared to topline 5.1 or 7.1 home theater surround, it is a very impressive substitute at 10% of the cost and 90% less hassle. The fact you can play music through the system from any Bluetooth device is a pleasant surprise. If a helicopter appears in the frame, then an absolute illusion appears that the sound comes from them, that is, the sound field acquires a completely distinct third dimension - height.
Also, you have an opportunity to download the app for smartphone or tablet which is compatible with this system. In case, if you worried that you might forget to turn off some of your home theatre item, you can turn off/on all the devices through the app when gone on vacation, etc. Such app compatibility with iOs and Android operating systems.
