Samsung HW-Q80R vs Yamaha YSP-2700

Samsung HW-Q80R review

Talking about audio features of these two we can say that Samsung has 5.1.2 channels and 372W of power vs 7.1 channels and 107W from Yamaha. Thanks to the end-to-end transmission of 4K video, you can easily watch 4K video from sources such as UBD players or game consoles. The soundbar supports sources with HDR 10 technology, allowing you to enjoy sound with the same high quality as video quality. Just connect the content source to the HDMI connector and that's it. Now you do not need to have several remote controls. You can control the on / off, volume and even sound effects of the soundbar using the TV remote control. Samsung HW-Q80R

Yamaha YSP-2700 review

Amazingly realistic 7.1-channel sound using Digital Sound Projector technology. YSP creates sound beams by activating the desired speaker projector speaker groups using a digital signal processing algorithm. Reflecting from the walls of the room, these rays form a realistic effect of the sound environment. The YSP-2700 is complemented by the latest Bluetooth technology, enhancing the convenience of wireless audio transmission. Yamaha YSP-2700

Samsung HW-Q80R pros & cons

Pros

  • Touch sensitive buttons on the soundbar for volume level, inputs, and basically everything you need in a quick layout
  • The controller is comfortable to hold. I found the enjoyment of seeing buttons for setting treble, bass, audio sync, and the levels of the various speakers

Cons

  • Only two HDMI inputs. Basically your TV and a gaming console

Yamaha YSP-2700 pros & cons

Pros

  • This sound bar (a sound projector rather) is a perfect compromise between sound quality, ergonomics, and style
  • The wireless sub does a good job of handling special effects and can bring some rumble

Cons

  • Obviously it isn't a component system with standalone speakers
