Sonos Playbar vs Yamaha YAS-107

Sonos Playbar review

When comparing Sonos Playbar vs Yamaha YAS107, Playbar can be described as “90 centimeters of sound”. Its output power is 200W. There are 3.0 built-in channels. I found a haven for as many as 9 speakers, 6 of which are responsible for the middle frequencies, and 3 - for the high ones in this plastic tile. The internal layout of the audio system is such that the user gets a 3.0 system by simply placing a Playbar in front of him. To turn this acoustics into a full-fledged set of audio accompaniment when watching a movie, you must add the impressive Sonos Sub to the Sonos Bridge system for intelligent control of the system.

Yamaha YAS107 review

When reviewing this product from Yamaha YAS107 vs Sonos Playbar rivalry I felt the next impressions. The YAS-107 includes some of the latest HDMI technology and gives you the flexibility to customize your entertainment room as you see fit. There is one HDMI 2.0a input with HDCP 2.2. This means that you can connect 4K UHD sources to the soundbar and then transfer this signal to your TV to take advantage of the high dynamic range (HDR-10, but not Dolby Vision) and the BT.2020 advanced color gamut in 4K UltraHD Blu- ray and 4K UHD. Its output power is 120W. There are 2.0 built-in channels.

Sonos Playbar pros & cons

Pros

  • It sounds like true 5.1 system, but adding two more speakers can't hurt
  • I had no problem setting up the Playbar to the Alexa/echo system
  • Good sound quality in various usage scenarios

Cons

  • The Playbar only has optical audio in, so it gets complicated when you have more than one device that you want to use with this speaker

Yamaha YAS107 pros & cons

Pros

  • Very clear and simple instruction manual
  • The remote control is also very simple and I like that you can control the level of bass and Surround

Cons

  • The combination of overall size and the mounting hole placement (on the bottom). When hung, the sound bar now takes up 5 inches of wall height below your TV
