Yamaha YAS-207 vs Sony HT-X9000F

Yamaha YAS-207 review

With an active virtual environment, the sound is more spectacular, expressive and juicy, but the construction of the scene is far from reality, and most importantly, the sound lacks “support”, it does not seem dense enough - this is due to phase manipulations that are inevitable when creating a virtual volume. If you switch to stereo mode (for this there is a separate button on the remote control), the sound becomes more realistic, but the width of the panorama is reduced and is no longer outside the soundbar. Regarding Yamaha YAS-207 vs Sony HT-X9000F comparison, let’s have a look at built-in channels quantity and output power, which are 2.1 and 2x100W respectively. Yamaha YAS-207

Sony HT-X9000F review

Comparing Sony HT-X9000F vs Yamaha YAS-207 I found out that the Sony HT-X9000F is a 2.1-channel soundbar with support for Dolby Atmos/DTS: X and Vertical Surround Engine technology that blends perfectly with BRAVIA TVs not only in quality but also in design. With the Sony HT-X9000 Vertical Surround Engine, the latest surround sound technology, you can enjoy the thrill of the latest audio formats in movie theaters such as Dolby Atmos and DTS: X in one slim package. No matter what room you are in, the three front speakers reproduce “vertical”, creating a virtual surround sound that seems to come from you. Sony HT-X9000F

Yamaha YAS-207 pros & cons

Pros

  • I personally have not heard any particular distribution of sound over the pitch, and naturally there are no sounds at the back / side
  • There is no heap of wires, trouble with the arrangement of columns around the room

Cons

  • When watching movies, the sound really “falls out” beyond the borders of the soundbar

Sony HT-X9000F pros & cons

Pros

  • The subwoofer automatically connects to the soundbar
  • The sound bar is super easy to use with the TV

Cons

  • No real indication that the Vertical S is on

The Sony HT-X9000F soundbar design is tuned to the same design as the Sony XF90 series, which immediately makes the TV and soundbar a great combination. In general, this is a bold step - to make a pan...

If the possibilities of a budget soundbar seem insufficient, it makes sense to pay attention to the middle positions in the company's price list and see our Yamaha YAS-207BL review. For example, Yama...
