Summary: The sound bar includes HDMI ports with full 3D pass-through and audio return channel support, HD digital decoders for Blu-ray audio, a satellite-ready FM tuner, the ability to upconvert analog video signals to 1080p for HDMI output, IR pass-through and wireless iOS device compatibility with an optional adapter. Value Premium priced, but powerful. The sound bar is insanely expensive, but it's also insanely capable. It's up to you to decide if that's a worthwhile exchange.
Pros: Great sound, Better virtual surround effects than most sound bars, Included wireless link for use with any subwoofer
Cons: Very large, No subwoofer included, High price tag compared to other sound bars
Excerpt: A rapidly-growing product category consists of horizontal speakers which sit under or near a flat-panel display yet manage to produce some sense of surround sound. For the concept’s earliest days those from Yamaha Music have been among the best and certainly the most high tech. This bar packs in 40 small drivers, each measuring 40mm, and each with its own little power amplifier.
