Good sound and a great value

Frierson Craig, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: This soundbar was easy to "install" with a single optical cable to the television. The wireless subwoofer paired quickly with the soundbar. The sound is much better than that from the TV speakers and the unit actually produces a reasonable "surround" effect. Of course to get superior surround sound effects and deep bass, a multispeaker (5.1, 7.1 or 7.2) system with a good receiver would be necessary. Overall my wife and I were pleased with this soundbar and subwoofer.

Sounds Great, But Limited Connectivity

NewCreature, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this because I wanted to add some bass to my living room entertainment setup for watching movies and playing video games. I made the mistake of assuming optical audio out was a standard feature of HD televisions, so I had to buy some extra adapters to get this to work for the two devices I wanted to hook up. One device has coaxial S/PDIF (DVD player) and the other has HDMI (Wii U).

  • Summary: Originally purchased for living room but the soundbar could not produce enough sound there. Totally my fault for not taking into consideration the size of the room. Moved the soundbar into the bedroom and "let there be sound" happened.

Good for a boost to your TV sound - works nicely for Apple TV music - but lacks a little punch.

  • Summary: Good sound bar for moderate-sized rooms. Wireless flexibility is nice. No problems with connection speed or signal. Worth a look.

Works Perfectly

BigAl64, Amazon

  • Summary: This replaced a Vizio soundbar that was just okay. The Yamaha has great sound, easy to slowly make the sound lower or louder and looks nicer. The subwoofer is also very good. Giving 4 stars because since this unit is in our bedroom not sure how good it would be in a larger room but for the bedroom it is perfect.

Wireless, streamlined. Looks good

Brandon Heise, Amazon

  • Summary: Could use a little more BASS but that is me, I like the thing. Wireless works 20' across the room and behind the couch. Works really well for that. Integrates with the Remote signal well too.

Yamaha YAS 101BL

Mark, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought it because I live near a street & couldn't hear the TV easily. Yes, you need to be careful removing from the box or you'll tear the speaker covering. Easy hookup. Yes the TV remote works past the soundbar. I am having trouble getting the Yamaha remote to learn the TV volume. The sound produced is like an echo. PLease do not remove past reviews because I do remember some of the reviews had better instructions than the enclosed booklet.

"Sound" investment.

the9634-6cp51d, Ebay

  • Summary: This sure beats the sound from my TV. Listening to the music and sound tracks from everything I watch and the music channels my cable service provides are much brighter and clearer with this system. I was pleasantly surprised how good this small sound bar and subwoofer perform especially considering what it's priced at. I'm not an audiophile but it sounds good to everyone thats been around to listen in. They say you get what you pay for and I think it's money well spent.

  • Summary: everything about this sound bar is amazing. the only bummer is that it doesn't have blutooth. the bass is a ridiculous good. My next door neighbor complain that it was too loud. i even use this as a stereo for whenever i have a little party.
