Yamaha YAS-207 vs Samsung HW-N650

Yamaha YAS-207 review

I managed to compare Yamaha YAS-207 vs Samsung HW-N650, and that’s what I think. In terms of its feature set, the Yamaha YAS-207 cannot be considered a universal system for use in any home theater. But for those who have a limited budget to purchase a soundbar, a small room, and do not need particularly powerful bass, the Yamaha YAS-207 will be a good buy due to its balanced sound and several audio effects. Yamaha was the first to add support for DTS Virtual: X and DTS Virtual Surround in its YAS-207 soundbar. There are 2.1 built-in channels. The power output is 100W. Yamaha YAS-207

Samsung HW-N650 review

The main function of the Samsung HW-N650 when comparing Samsung HW-N650 vs Yamaha YAS-207 I see is the opportunity to work with a source of high-quality sound, and primarily with a TV. The panel is flat enough to fit under any screen. At the same time, the soundbar can also serve as an ordinary music center. It has a USB connector where you can connect a USB flash drive, as well as Bluetooth for connecting with mobile devices. There are 5.1.2 built-in channels. The output power is 360W. The connection and control is complicated by the lack of a full screen: it is, but very tiny and hidden under a grid on the right side of the soundbar. Samsung HW-N650

Yamaha YAS-207 pros & cons

Pros

  • The sound bar has excellent sound (which is its primary purpose)
  • Hdmi works well with my Vizio TV as the sound level displays on the TV
  • Also allows you to use the same remote

Cons

  • What I lost when I tested the Yamaha soundbar was integration ease

Samsung HW-N650 pros & cons

Pros

  • You can add 54W semi-wireless rear speakers to make it 5.1
  • I find the clarity of dialog to be high and the positional audio to be immersive

Cons

  • I had some issues with HDMI ARC, and with pairing the additional rear speakers(8500s), took a while to start working properly
