An expensive soundbar when we compare Sonos Playbar vs Yamaha YSP-5600. It has a number of unusual features - first of all, it supports the Sonos system, the ability to easily connect additional modules (subwoofer, speakers), use both a full-fledged music home system and a soundbar for a TV. All the latest Sonos speakers (e.g. Play: 3) can only be used with the Sonos wireless system. It gives you access to the music library on your computer and a very considerable set of other streaming services, including Spotify and Deezer. Its output power is 200W. There are 3.0 built-in channels. All these is enclosed in a metal and plastic case with a minimalist design. Two inputs for Ethernet cable, one optical input.
What about this pretender to be the winner in the Yamaha YSP-5600 vs Sonos Playbar rivalry I can say the next. It has 7.1.2 built-in channels and the power output of 285W total. The Yamaha YSP-5600 is a soundbar with a sound projector function that supports the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS: X audio formats. Given that Yamaha has accumulated vast experience in creating soundbars based on sound projector technology, and has been very successful in this, the YSP-5600 looks very tempting. However, creating a soundbar with 46 emitters that would be able to recreate the sound of a 7.1.2-channel system is not so simple, and in any case it will not be cheap.
