So much better! It does exactly what I was hoping it ...

Summary: If you live in an apartment and aren't an insensitive neighbor then this unit can be a lifesaver. With my old unit I was constantly turning the sound up for dialog and down for music and special effects.
Summary: Abolutely cannot believe how well this single sound bar can produce so much quality sound. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I'm still amazed at how powerfull this thing is for the price. I would expect this kind of performace out of bose or a klipsh, but wow.
Summary: Got this on the gold box special for $149.99. It's a good deal for that price. I had to remove the stands because the speaker was too tall and blocked the signals on my Samsung tv making the remote unusable. No problem there. I ordered the Yamaha YAS-101 but the YAS-101BL arrived.
Summary: Overall I was very impressed with this unit. The sound quality exceeded my expectations, given that it's a single unit sound bar. Bass was decent, sufficient and balanced, not overly deep/loud, just right IMO. My living room is about 20x30 and the sound fills the room without problems.
Summary: Newegg return procedure was painless (other than the $50 price to send it back)
Pros: very simple setup
Cons: quality was not $250 worth of high quality. Mt LG TV quality was equal. Unable to adjust for audio delay, the adjustment provided was insufficient to compensate for the voice lag. DVD did not lag, TV did. I chose to take the $50 hit for returning it rather than live with it. Even the UPS guy said...
Pros: The only pro is its design - it's a bar. That's the only thing I like about it.
Cons: The problem with this bar is that it is absolutely nothing special. When you pay $200 for a piece of equipment, you expect a certain improvement, but with this bar it was almost non-existent. I am not a speaker snob or anything, but I think it's ridiculous that it shows an original price of $300....
Summary: Bought this for my parents to compliment their new TV, and they couldn't be happier with it's performance. Thanks to Newegg for offering it $100 cheaper than suggested. NOTE: When I plugged this into the TV, the cable box switched its audio mode for some reason, so it took me a few minutes without...
Pros: Great sound and noticeable bass even without a dedicated subwoofer. Quality product from Yamaha, did not disappoint. I have it installed in a large room (20' by 15'), and the sound bar still fills it even on moderate volume levels.
Cons: Wall mounting options are not well-documented.
Summary: I've had this sound bar for a couple of weeks now, but wanted, since I love Bose products, to try their Bose Solo. So I purchased it with the expectation the Yamaha would be going back to the store. Holy cow, the Bose is a horrible toy compared to this thing!!
Summary: I use the Yamaha Sound System with my TV and Macbook Pro to deliver beautiful sound and music. This is an addition to the other Yamaha Products I have purchased over the years from Newegg. I've never been disappointed!
Pros: Beautiful, rich sound from both optical ports.
Summary: I picked up this item a few days ago, after reading the great reviews and noticing it was $100 off. It was one of the best technology related decisions I have ever made, and I won't go back to regular TV speakers. I never noticed how bad of a sound quality my TV is, until I plugged this bad boy in.
Pros: Easy to set up. Sleek and modern look makes it so it isn't an eye sore. Blends in well with the TV. Built in Sub woofer. Overall sound quality is awesome.
