Posted on 04 October 2017 Tags: Entertainment, Home Entertainment Gadgets

Yamaha mostly known for AV receivers and speakers has come up with the YAS-207 sound bar, which is mid-priced, but can live up to your expectations.

Features

The Yamaha YAS-207 comes with compelling, class-leading performance in a much practical and easy to use package. It’s a sound bar with rectangular woofers, which gives it a slightly modern look. On the front it has touch controls for power, you can use switch inputs and volume control using the panel. It has HDMI ports with HMDI-out (ARC) and HDM-in, and a standard 3.5 audio jack. It also has a USB port to update the firmware. The speaker’s configuration is 5.1 while the dimensions are 36.62 x 2.37 x 4.25 inches (W x H x D).

What makes Yamaha YAS-207 truly special is sound quality. It’s crisp, sharp and clear. The music and dialogues in movies and TV shows are loud enough with deep bass effects. You can further adjust the sound of dialogues by selecting the preset sound profile “clear voice”. This feature comes in handy when you are entertaining a larger number of guests.

The Yamaha YAS-207 produces an impressive virtual sound by using latest codes knows as DTS Virtual X. The idea of this new codec is that people can enjoy surround sound no matter where you install the device, and you will also be able to enjoy the surround-sound effect at any volume. If that’s not enough, the product also comes with 4k sound capability although the tech is not revolutionary, with this price tag it can really shame several of its expensive rivals. We tested the sound by watching a soccer match in ultra HD settings, we are happy to announce that we were impressed. The sound of the crowd and commentary did, in fact, feel as if I watching the match live. While playing a movie we noticed that background music and crowd chatting can be clearly heard.

Verdict

With its price tag, the Yamaha YAS-207 totally takes the lead; those who are short on budget, but want the experience of surround sound don’t have to look any further. This is definitely the system for you. Setting it up is very simple, balanced sound and excellent value for money totally makes it a wonderful option.
