Yamaha YAS-207 Review and Specs

Yamaha YAS-207 If the possibilities of a budget soundbar seem insufficient, it makes sense to pay attention to the middle positions in the company's price list and see our Yamaha YAS-207BL review. For example, Yamaha YAS-207, the first to receive support for the latest DTS Virtual: X format. Check out other Yamaha YAS-207BL specs.

Features

The surround sound system really does something with processing, it seems that the room is much larger and more “echoing”, up to the attenuation of the signal with the “sound”. On the other hand, it sticks out more high and mid frequencies. It is important that there really are differences in sound - you can choose, and indeed these switches change something, and not just "for show". There are 2.1 built-in channels. The power output is 100W.

Design and build

The package bundle is minimalistic: documentation, a mounting template made of cardboard (to make it easier to drill a wall), an optical digital cable (for those who have a TV without a return audio channel, to provide sound transmission from it), a pair of power cables and a small flat panel remote control. They didn’t put an HDMI cable, but to buy it at retail is several times more expensive than to a factory in bulk.

Connectivity

Inside - six drivers: four midrange / bass with a diameter of 4.6 cm and a pair of inch tweeters. Switching is extremely simple: one HDMI for the source and one more for the TV with reverse audio channel (ARC). Next is the Toslink optical input and the analog input on the 3.5 mm jack, and, like all other connectors, it is on the back. The USB interface is also in the same compartment, but you won’t be able to listen to music from it, it’s service, for updating firmware.

Setup

It is possible to program the soundbar to work with a standard TV remote control, this is now a standard feature for acoustics of this kind. But the most interesting is the free mobile application for iOS and Android. Interesting because the soundbar does not have Wi-Fi, and Yamaha this application works via Bluetooth. Theoretically, this is not unusual, but for some reason other manufacturers do not use this interface for mobile applications.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • I personally have not heard any particular distribution of sound over the pitch, and naturally there are no sounds at the back / side
  • There is no heap of wires, trouble with the arrangement of columns around the room

Cons

  • When watching movies, the sound really “falls out” beyond the borders of the soundbar
