Yamaha YAS-207 vs Sony HT-Z9F

Yamaha YAS-207 review

I compared Yamaha YAS-207 vs Sony Z9F. Yamaha YAS-207 is 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. Using Bluetooth: v4.1 EDR (Profile) A2DP allows you to exchange information with many sound carriers, and the ARC return channel, created to receive a stereo or multi-channel audio signal, can be used without connecting an additional cable. It is also worth noting that the Yamaha YAS-207 can be controlled not only using the remote control, but also through a special application created for iOS and Android devices. There are 2.1 built-in channels. The power output is 100W. Yamaha YAS-207

Sony HT-Z9F review

Regarding another side of the Sony Z9F vs Yamaha YAS-207 rivalry, here we have an excellent 3.1-channel soundbar Dolby Atmos / DTS: X with Vertical Surround Engine technology transmits extremely realistic sound during movie playback, and also easily fits into any interior. Its power is 400W and it features 3.1 built-in channels. Sony Z9F

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 Z9F pros & cons

Pros

  • Setup is fairly straightforward but did require a few visits to the manual
  • Listening to live recordings feels like you are at the show
  • The level of immersion in these speakers is completely magical

Cons

  • It could use a little more wattage

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...
