Yamaha YAS-207 vs Sony HT-CT800

Yamaha YAS-207 review

When testing Yamaha YAS-207 vs Sony HT-CT800, I was surprised that Yamaha YAS-207 turned out to be an elegant dynamic wireless soundbar that is capable of supporting the modern sound format DTS Virtual: X, which makes it possible to provide the user with the effect of being in the cinema, thanks to realistic sound simulating ceiling speakers. The device is equipped with a traditional layout, and an exciting sound effect is provided by the use of sound tracks DTS: X. There are 2.1 built-in channels. The power output is 100W.

Sony HT-CT800 review

What’s concerning Sony HT-CT800 vs Yamaha YAS-207, I was glad that the speakers located on each side of the soundbar provide clear sound in the mid and high frequency ranges, and the wireless subwoofer makes the bass sound rich and bright. S-Force PRO Front Surround technology simulates the atmosphere of a movie theater with ambient sound and makes it possible to feel at the very epicenter of the film's events. Support for HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) allows you to connect to a TV with one cable, and three HDMI inputs provide the freedom to connect to various devices. The Soundbar HT-CT800 is compatible with the HDCP 2.2 copy protection standard, which supports the latest 4K formats. It has 2.1 built-in channels and 650W power output. Sony HT-CT800
