Yamaha YAS-207 vs Bose Solo 5

Yamaha YAS-207 review

Concerning this side to compare Yamaha YAS-207BL vs Bose Solo 5, I’ll say the next. Unlike soundbars that support the similar Dolby Atmos format and have upward-facing speakers for this purpose, the YAS-207 has a traditional layout. On the front panel there are 4 woofers with a diameter of 1.75 inches and a couple of inch tweeters. An exciting sound effect based on DTS: X soundtracks is achieved through a sophisticated signal processing algorithm. DTS Virtual: X provides “visualization” of sound in several dimensions and supports any input source from two-channel stereo to 11.1 (configuration 7.1.4). Yamaha wins in terms of built-in channels quantity and output power, which are 2.1 and 2x100W respectively. Yamaha YAS-207 BL

Bose Solo 5 review

What is noticed from the first glance is the minimum dimensions, can be put, can be hung. If we compare Bose Solo 5 vs Yamaha YAS-207BL so the appearance is practical, the device does not rush into the eyes. There is convenient universal remote control that allows you to control other home appliances. Bluetooth support is far from nonsense for those who do not want one device for most tasks. Proprietary technologies, TrueSpace, increased speech intelligibility - all this works very well in films, series, games. There are 2.0 built-in channels. To add, this playbar has the power output of 100W. Bose Solo 5
