Samsung HW-Q90R review

Comparing these units I have to note that Samsung has 7.1.4 channels vs 7.1 from Yamaha. Concerning power the first one has 512W against 107W. On the front panel there are six woofers and three tweeters, large speakers are located on both sides, plus two more of the previously mentioned speakers in the upper part. Wireless rear speakers in terms of sound have some advantages. An elegant narrow remote control is supplied with the soundbar, which is very similar to the remote control for Samsung TVs. It is beautiful, well thought out and lies comfortably in the hand. The soundbar display is minimalistic. Samsung HW-Q90R

Yamaha YSP-2700 review

This model has three inputs and one HDMI output, and supports end-to-end transmission of super-high definition video in 4K / 60p format. HDCP2.2 digital video copy protection technology is also supported. This expands the possibilities of using the system and is designed for the future. The Compressed Music Enhancer feature restores frequencies lost during digital signal compression. As a result, the music will always sound as it should. Optimized for Bluetooth wireless audio transmission. Depending on the input signal, you can turn this function on or off using the remote control. Yamaha YSP-2700

Samsung HW-Q90R pros & cons

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
