Polk Audio SIGNA S2 review

Signa S2's low-profile, versatile soundbar delivers incredible, space-filling sound — much more than you can get from the TV’s small built-in speakers. Signa S2 supports Polk Voice Adjust and surround technology, delivers crystal clear dialogs and immersive surround sound, and the complete wireless subwoofer adds deep bass accompaniment. Plus, you can also stream your favorite music via Bluetooth. It will be a challenge to find something different in these two soundbars as far as they are almost identical. Both of them have 2.1 channels. Polk Audio SIGNA S2

Yamaha YAS-207 review

The main "trick" of the model is, of course, compatibility with the new surround format DTS Virtual:X. The name of this technology is consonant with DTS:X, competing with the Dolby Atmos format of object-oriented surround sound. With modern TVs, it is preferable to use HDMI. Moreover, the soundbar is equipped not only with an output, but also with one input of this format with the ability to broadcast a 4K signal with HDR and HDCP 2.2. In a word, in all respects it is suitable for any sources and televisions of the latest generation. Yamaha YAS-207
