Yamaha-MusicCast-BAR-400-vs-Yamaha-YSP-2700

Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 review

Compared Yamaha brothers obviously have diversities. The MusicCast has 5.1 channels and 100W of power, while his rival has 7.1 and 107W respectively. All six soundbar drivers are concentrated on the front panel, so it is suspended horizontally from the wall - just like it is on the pedestal. The bass drivers of the MusicCast Bar 400 are located on a narrow front panel, there are four of them, so the total volume of transported air in the model is greater, respectively, and the lower boundary frequency of the speaker is lower.
