Yamaha YAS-207 vs Yamaha YAS-209

Yamaha YAS-207 review

There are 2.1 built-in channels. The power output is 100W. 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 YAS-207

For this, it is convenient to use the Wi-Fi connection provided in the device. Yamaha YAS-209
