Yamaha YAS Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer

Sound Bar with DTS Virtual:X


A New Dimension of Sonic Realism.

It’s never been easier to immerse yourself in clear, lifelike sound for all of your TV shows, movies, games and music. The world’s first sound bar with DTS Virtual:X, the YAS-207 is capable of virtualizing sound in multiple dimensions – including height – offering more realistic sonic reproduction of any content without the complexity of using numerous speakers. The slim bar fits perfectly in front of your TV or can be wall-mounted, while the included wireless subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room.

Ready to Rumble. When You Are.

When it’s time for movie night or for pumping jams for a party, the YAS-207 is ready. Its powerful subwoofer delivers deep, impactful bass that you can feel. And it’s wireless, so you can place it anywhere in the room. The included remote control lets you adjust the subwoofer level, so you can decide when it’s all about that bass.

Easy, High-Performance Connectivity

For the fastest, easiest setup, the YAS-207 comes with an optical cable in the box that allows for a single-cable connection to the output of a TV. For best performance, the YAS-207 offers an HDMI input and output that can be used with separately-sold HDMI cables. It supports 4K Ultra HD (60P) and HDR pass-through, and HDCP 2.2, ensuring compatibility with the latest TVs and sources.

Three Ways to Stay in Control

It’s nice to have choices. The YAS-207 comes with a dedicated remote control in the box or it can be controlled with a free, downloadable app for Apple iOS and Android devices. If your TV is compatible with HDMI-CEC and you use separately-sold HDMI cables to hook it up, you can turn the power on and off, switch inputs, adjust the volume and easily perform other operations by using your existing TV remote.

There’s an App for It

If your smartphone or tablet is always nearby, you’ll want to check out the free, downloadable Home Theater Controller app. It gives you smart operability of the YAS-207 in a beautiful and intuitive design. You can select input, select surround mode and make sound adjustments. It also does more, providing access to settings beyond what is available from the included remote control.

Bluetooth Made Better

Stream your favorite music from your mobile devices via Bluetooth with surprising sound quality. The YAS-207 automatically enhances the high-end of compressed music sources and deepens the mid- to low-ranges, giving you a more vivid and warm sound quality approaching the original.

The Yamaha YAS-207 has six speakers in the sound bar itself and a 6.25-inch wireless subwoofer. In addition, it has the newest vertical surround codec, DTS Virtual:X, which adds depth to the movies you watch, and it’s easier to set up than a traditional surround sound system.
Its Clear Voice setting produced some of the best sounding vocals and dialogue in our tests. When you combine that clear dialogue and immersive surround sound with a price of less than $300, it is hard to justify using your TV’s built-in speakers. This sound bar has most of the important connectivity options, including HDMI ports, a 3.5mm auxiliary input and Bluetooth. The HDMI connections support 4K and HDR video pass-through, so the YAS-207 doesn’t degrade the video quality of content you play through your stream box or Blu-ray player if you connect them directly to it. However, the easiest way to set up your sound bar is to use the TV as the connection hub and send digital audio to the sound bar via the optical input. It’s also easy to connect mobile devices to the YAS-207 via Bluetooth so you can play your favorite songs from your smartphone or MP3 player. The one important connection option missing on the YAS-207 is Wi-Fi. Sound bars with Wi-Fi use your home’s wireless network to connect to devices and allow you to stream higher-quality content from greater distances than with Bluetooth. To transmit via Bluetooth, you have to be within roughly 30 feet of the sound bar, and the connection doesn’t transmit lossless audio.
