About the Yamaha YAS-207

Take TV sound to new heights

Talk about an upgrade to your TV's tiny built-in speakers. The Yamaha YAS-207 is the first sound bar that's ready for DTS Virtual:X — a new technology that simulates three-dimensional surround sound for your movies, shows, and sports. In other words? This bar and sub combo will make it sound like you have speakers around you, and even above you.

Take TV sound to new heights

Yamaha YAS-207 with DTS Virtual:X

Cutting-edge DTS Virtual:X processing (available with firmware update) simulates speakers all around you — even overhead.

Talk about an upgrade to your TV's tiny built-in speakers. The Yamaha YAS-207 is the first sound bar that's ready for DTS Virtual:X — a new technology that simulates three-dimensional surround sound for your movies, shows, and sports. In other words? This bar and sub combo will make it sound like you have speakers around you, and even above you.

This processing just recently became available (via a firmware update from Yamaha), but we got an in-house preview from DTS. I tested out Virtual:X on an episode of Game of Thrones and was blown away by the massive, detailed sound field. And while it works best with shows and movies mixed for DTS:X® or Dolby Atmos®, the cool thing is that it will enhance any other content, too.

Fits neatly into your TV setup

Even with the DTS Virtual:X processing turned off, the YAS-207 adds excitement to your TV watching. And it doesn't take up a lot of space. The bar can be wall-mounted or placed below your TV on a stand or table. Six built-in drivers dish out wide-open sound, while the Clear Voice feature ensures dialogue is easy to understand. 

How does DTS Virtual:X work?

Many sound bars simulate Dolby Atmos or DTS:X by bouncing sound off your walls and ceiling. That's not what's happening here. The drivers inside the YAS-207 sound bar are slightly angled, but they're placed more or less where you'd expect to find them in two-channel bar. There are no upward-firing drivers. Instead, DTS Virtual:X almost completely relies on digital sound processing.

DTS uses what they call "spatial audio techniques" to — my word here — "trick" you into thinking you're hearing sound all around you. Incredibly sophisticated audio delays and adjustments create a larger, wider soundstage. That includes overhead atmospheric effects like leaves rustling on a tall tree or birds chirping above.

Read my article "What is DTS Virtual:X?" for more details 

Wireless sub for potent bass

Sound bar in TV setup

Low-profile design for a clean TV setup (Sub must be connected to an AC outlet).

The YAS-207's subwoofer communicates wirelessly with the bar to give you more placement options. It's also pretty slim, so you might be able to stick it right next to your TV setup. (You'll need to connect it to an AC outlet.) This powerful sub brings the low-end thunder to round out the home theater experience.

Simple to hook up...

Even though the Yamaha YAS-207 includes such advanced sound processing, it's still straightforward to set up. You can connect the bar directly to your TV with the included digital optical cable. Or you can use the YAS-207's HDMI input and output — both are compatible with 4K TVs and video sources with high dynamic range (HDR). 

...and simple to use

You can control the sound bar with the included remote or Yamaha's free smartphone app for Apple® or Android™. There are five listening modes — Music, TV Program, Movie, Sports, and Game — to help tailor the sound to what you're watching. And built-in Bluetooth® lets you play music wirelessly from your phone through the sound bar's powerful drivers.

    Yamaha YAS-207

    Crutchfield customer from Montgomery, TX on 5/19/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Bought the YAS-207 because Yamaha products are always high quality. Don't watch many movies but the sound quality for music was very poor. Very "tinny", almost no bass. Another lesson about "you get what you pay for". Crutchfield was very easy to deal with and authorized a return with no problem.

    Pros: Easy to set up, build quality seems good

    Cons: Poor sound quality for music, "tinny" almost no bass

    I started out with the optical connection and was pleased but it meant using two remotes. Then I hooked up the DVD with HDMI(ARC) and I now control everything with one remote. The sound is much better than just the TV and it give the feeling of a theater and I can control the bass separately.

    Pros: It was worth every penny.

    Cons: None found.

    Verified customer (What's this?)

    I'm not a wordy guy. This sound bar is far, far better than the last one we had here, but I'm not able to say that this is the best of the best. It's good enough for now. Simple set up, good sound. The room where we watch television is oddly shaped and I'm not an acoustical engineer. This is the first Yamaha product I've owned. There might be others who like the Yamaha sound vs. Klipsch vs. Bose, etc. I don't care to get into that debate and will not. Since we mainly watch television, this sound bar will do. For those who like to compare, and want to have one, here goes: comparing this sound bar with the Marantz surround system we once had feels like comparing hogs and cattle. Bacon and steak both taste good, but they're not the same. I live in Nebraska. An agricultural-themed comparison makes sense to me.

    Pros: Price. Size.

    Cons: None.

    Sound is decent. Thing that was the deal breaker for me was you could only adjust the level of the subwoofer. You can't even adjust bass and treble on this sound bar? I'll pass.

    Pros:

    Cons: Very limited adjustability.

    So good I'm going to buy another

    Crutchfield customer from Cortland, NY on 3/27/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The sound quality is just perfect for my 15 by 18-foot living room with my 40 Samsung HUD smart tv. The amount of base is well balanced with the sound bar. It was easy to set up and adjust. The sound level is controllable with your tv remote with a simple set up. The sound bar remote is put away because I don't need it hanging around once set up. I love this so much I'm buying another for my 65 inch Samsung in my family room.

    Pros: Great sound, easy set-up, great picture, great value.

    Cons: Setting up smartphone app was a little complicated and I had to complete registration through emails instead of through the phone app. I see the phone app as not having value and I don't even use it.

    impressive

    E J from Scottsdale, AZ on 3/20/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This system is 3.1, not true surround sound, because there are no rear, side, or ceiling speakers, but the sound is still amazing. The subwoofer is more than sufficient. I bought this because I have vaulted ceilings, and the soundbars with speakers that aim upward to bounce sound off the ceiling would not work for me. I recommend regular surround mode. Simulated 3D surround sound sounds like garbage IMHO. I recommend turning clear voice on and bass extension off (too muddy). Warning: it does not receive Dolby Digital from my Roku Streaming Stick+. The soundbar's DD indicator light is off no matter what Roku channel I use. I spent a ton of time with Roku technical support and Yamaha technical support but was never able to solve the problem. (Some Roku users have complained about DD output problems since the OS 9.0 "up"grade.) It does receive DD from my Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k.

    Pros: amazing sound for the money

    Cons: no true surround (no wireless rear/side speakers), but that's to be expected at this price point

    Shreeram from Apex, NC on 3/17/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Was happy to find out the packaging of the soundbar managed to sustain quite a bit abuse. The components were not impacted in anyway. Kudos for the factory packaging. Installed the sound bar. Very simple. Audio quality was good clear perfect for movie and TV viewing. Supports multiple inputs HDMI, Optical Input, Analog and Bluetooth. For an audio geek this is sufficient.

    Pros: Simple setup, clear vocals. Slim and easily wall mountable given the mounting template. Sub woofer worked seamlessly.

    Cons: Sub woofer sounded a bit muddy. Could be our set top box.

    I've had this sound at for a couple weeks now and overall I'm pleased with it. Clear sound a good bass. I don't think the 'surround' feature is anything special and I haven't noticed a big difference on the clear voice either. I was just looking for an upgrade to my new TV and this fit the budget. I would recommend it!

    Seems like a good product so far. The rep I spoke to when ordering told me to call her should I have any questions about the hook up. I called six days ago, left a msg but haven't received a return call. Guess I'll call tech support when I get time.

    Pros: Nice look, good sound, affordable

    Cons: No tv visual display other than on the app for remote selections. The lights on the bar indicate you remote selection. Ie: surround vs steero, clear voice etc.

    This my first external TV speaker and It takes sound to the next level while still being affordable.Bass sounds close to thunderous on certain movies especially with Blu-Ray HD. Was pretty easy to set up with Included remote control. Instructions however are badly written and confusing.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Very simply put, for the price you cannot and I mean cannot do better then the Yamaha Model YAS-207 soundbar and subwoofer but you can do a lot worst when it comes to other brands in this price range but this soundbar was just a small part of what I enjoyed about dealing with Crutchfield. What I really enjoyed was the various people I spoke with over the phone and internet. I did speak to 3 guys and 1 gal. so I cannot remember their names but one does stand out, he worked in the tech department and his name was Doc, I guess his name is why I remember or maybe its because this guy is so tech smart I mean like geek, geek smart LOL, but I was impressed with every one of them for their products knowledge base and how courteous each one of them were hard to find now days in this hi pressure world. I'm 75 years old and I have done business with a lot of people and I can tell you that these people are straight shooters, they don't try to sell you what they want to sell you they actually want to know what you are looking for, what you are trying to accomplish with the product or in my case a Soundbar and they also want to know what you are expecting your chosen product to give you when it comes to sound quality etc. etc. and that when they start giving you their thoughts and suggestions but not once did I feel like they were trying to sway me over to a particular product just to make a sale and I never felt like I was being rushed. AlsoCan'tSay EnoughForTheirAfterSalesTechHelp!

    Pros: I tend to look at the overall/big picture so I am just going to reiterate what I said in my review above. For the price you will not will not find a better overall performing Soundbar then the YAS-207 but you can pay the same price and more for way lessor quality with a lot less, less options and functions. This Soundbar looks great, remote is not to small and it works great too and its easy to set up for the average person and I'm average even though I had to call in for a little tech help.

    Cons: Like I've said, no real cons given the built quality and price point. OK yes there are some cons, it does not sound like a $2,000.00 Soundbar, its not quite as pretty as a $3,000.00 Soundbar and it does not have an on screen display but it does have various colored lights instead that I very seldom use now that I've gotten used to operating the remote. Oh there is another Con, this Soundbar sounds as good if not better then many of the more expensive ones that I listened too! GO YAMAHA ya ya

    I had a Polk Audio MagniFi MAX before this and with that voices seemed to get lost in the other sounds. No matter how I tweak that system. The Yamaha the voices come out clear and don't seem to be overpowered by other sound. The bass is enough for my liking for general TV watching. Overall I like the sound quality of this device Setup was more of a challenge than expected and the directions a bit confusing to me. I'm using the ARC from my Samsung Q7 TV and plugged that into the ARC on the soundbar. I ran through the directions with holding down the HDMI button on the remote. To my surprise no sound came out. Turns out the HDMI process is for another device (say your DVD player) that is not using the ARC feature. By hitting the TV button on the remote I had sound.

    Pros: Good Voice sound Good value for the price

    Cons: Setup a bit unclear No HDMI cable with the system

    Good sound for the price. "Clear Voice" works well as does the independent control of the sub-woofer. However my Kenwood-Definition Technology system still beats it by a large margin and this is what I use for movies that need a large presence.

    Pros: Good sound for the price. The sound bar is nicely styled and the sub-woofer can easily be placed for a good result

    Cons: It seems to lack a little middle range definition

    Yamaha YAS-207 Sound Bar

    WK from Denver, CO on 1/24/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    For the price, this is an excellent sound bar. I have it connected via HDMI to the ARC input on my 4k TV. The sound is good -- especially with "clear voice" enabled -- in a ~18' x ~12' room with vaulted (11' at peak) ceiling. We tested the sound bar watching "Avengers: Infinity War;" attaining an appropriate volume was not a problem, and I was genuinely surprised by the bass performance. Despite the 3-D "Virtual:X" surround-sound voodoo, this is certainly not going to supplant a proper home theater speaker system. However, depending on the source material, the front speaker and subwoofer sound very good. I'm no longer constantly adjusting the volume on the TV while watching a movie. Dialogue is crisp with "clear voice" enabled. I also streamed some music (Apple Music via AppleTV 4k) and was pleasantly surprised by the audio quality. The highs were a bit tinny, mids were virtually non-existent, and the bass was good -- not muddy at all. FOUR STARS because of the sound quality (though exceptional for the price) and lack of granularity in the controls. The subwoofer, for example, has only 4 or 5 discrete volume levels. And there's no equalizer; it's basically 3 or 4 presets (stereo, surround, 3-D surround). Yamaha's "HT controller" app is useless. If ~$300 is your price target, this is probably as good a sound bar as you're going to find.

    Pros: Good bass, clarity of dialogue with clear voice enabled, great price-performance ratio

    Cons: Limited controls, surround-sound sorcery is somewhat underwhelming after reading dozens of glowing reviews

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Reasonable size, nice features, good sound, really like being able to set up with HDMI cables for Blu-Ray DVD to soundbar to TV. Build quality and warranty nice. Crutchfield's sales and service are definitely the best part, as I had to return another brand's soundbar due to defective sub, and the tech and sales people I worked with were patient and helpful. Thanks

    Pros: sound very adjustable to suit my preferences, really like HDMI in and out, as my TV has no optical output

    Cons: stereo setting for music seems dull, regular surround sound seems good, special DTS seems too harsh

    A good, not great, improvement to flat screen sound

    Robert from Sarasota, FL on 1/15/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    This soundbar can be a good improvement to the audio generated by a flat-screen TV, in my case a four year-old 50" Smart Samsung TV. At its best, the sound is much richer, with good bass and somewhat clearer voice projection, which is why I bought it. That said, this is an inexpensive upgrade, and doesn't come close to equaling the sound from a home theater system. Two issues: (1) sometimes it seems to stop working when the audio is from the TV/set top box, and (2) it was difficult for me to get it hooked up. I called Crutchfield for help: they were great, and within a half hour or so, I was all set. I'm not a techie, but I was expecting that it would be easier to set up.

    Pros: Good bass Clearer voice (as compared to the flat screen's speakers)

    Cons: Inconsistent sound when watching TV Hard to set up.

    For the price you can not beat this sound bar. The sub isn't over powered and the bar itself presents mods and highs just right. As far as booking this unit up, very little effort is needed. The one thing if you don't have any, is invest in a couple additional HDMI cords. That would be the only suggestion I would give, is to mention or include two HDMI patch cords to complete the install. Over all a satisfied customer.

    Pros: Ease of set up. Price. Sound quality.

    Cons: Need additional cords was not mentioned.

    This soundbar will never replace a 7.1 surround, but is pretty good overall. Music using Bluetooth works well from my iPad. The Yamaha Home Theater app also works well. The one disappointment is there's no separate bass and treble on the remote or the app

    Pros: Big improvement over stock tv speakers

    Cons: No bass and treble adjustments for this model.

    Really nice. I didn't know how much I was missing. Has just the right amount of power and features. Easy to use. Great match for the TLC. Made TV more enjoyable. Clear voice and bass expander work well as well as 3D. The Sub fits nicely next to the bed and is a nice look. I also got the brackets to hang it from the tv wall mount but it would hang easily on the wall. Plays music from Bluetooth nicely.

    Pros: Nice improvement Not too expensive Has a self powered wireless Subwoofer Features and app work well. Looks nice A Yamaha fan Well balanced sound

    Cons: None that are notable

    Sounds ok, but just ok. Dissapointed in the bass, figured there would be more thump reading reviews and the recomendation from Crutchfield guy. Also have to really turn it up to get the tv sound I am looking for. If you want super bass and a bit louder sound from less volume look at other systems.

    Pros: Price was ok, easy to connect.

    Cons: Bass needs something. Doesnt have enough power.

    Great product. Super simple to set up. AND... Crutchfield tech support help with with a challenge and now even happier. System worked fine in a few minutes, but I wanted my Roku remote to control the power on/off and the volume up/down of both my TV and the new soundbar system. They walked me through the setup settings on the TV and the connects. Works like a charm! With just my Roku remote, I can turn on and off the devices and control the volume. And it's all smart enough to turn off the TV volume when the sound bar is on, and turn the TV volume back on if the sound bar is turned off. Sounds and works great. Service and support are 10 stars as usual. I buy everything through Crutchfield and urge my friends and colleagues.

    Pros: All good.

    Cons: None so far.

    This is a great little soundbar and for the price I'm not sure you could do much better. Great sound for small spaces, but with just a few more speakers it could probably fill a room of any size. While the DTS:X does add to the sound quality while watching movies it does not really come close to a true surround sound. It may be unreasonable to expect this, but if it is advertised... Overall I am very pleased with the YAS-207 and would highly recommend it.

    Pros: Packs a punch especially in my small space. Great price. Easy to setup. Clear mids and highs. Low profile makes fitting the soundbar in any space easy.

    Cons: The 3D effect is over-exaggerated. Switching between DSP modes is tricky without the app.

    I am a musician and have owned JBL high end product for years with great satisfaction. I was skeptical of using a sound bar but had no choice in going this route. I started with JBL of course and then Bose. I wasn't doing cartwheels over either brand. I tried this unit and am quite impressed. I didn't expect much volume or depth of bass but this unit delivers on both. It is what it is but it out performed my long term favorite brands. Nice work! The build quality is excellent for the money.

    Pros: Easy set up and functionality. Very good sound quality. Good bass for the money.

    Cons: No HDMI cable or male to male USB for updates.

    I did some research before purchasing this product and I have to say that I'm very satisfied with my purchase. This soundbar easily performs ahead of what it's price tag would indicate. I once paid $100 more for a Bose soundbar that wasn't even half as good as this. Only things I wish it would have would be auto standby on all inputs and a remote with the more common AAA batteries. Aside from that you will not be disappointed.

    Pros: Sound, price, ease of use, value for your dollar

    Cons: No auto standby on all inputs, remote runs on the pricier kind of battery.

Ran it with HDMI and Optical connections to make sure everything worked. The Surround Sound vs the Stereo mode is quite useful depending on your audio source and mood. The sub has good range and deep bass. Overall a solid buy on a budget or limited room/space options.

    Pretty Good but Not Awesome

    hchang from Orlando, FL on 10/29/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    It's definitely an upgrade to the TV speakers. Sound is good overall although the bass is not that good at higher volume and wish there was a way to dial in the sound a bit more since the highs could be a little more crisp. Also wish you could change the level of the clear voice feature. Not convinced these are better than my 5.1 polk surround sound speakers. It works seamlessly with my Roku remote with the HDMI/ARC connection which is huge plus (there was a little issue with installation but as always, Crutchfield support helped me fix it). The space saving design makes up for some of its inadequacies.

    Pros: ARC connection to TV for remote Clear sound

    Cons: Bass is lackluster and gets distortion at higher volume Needs more ways to dial in the sound

    I have had a 7.2 system with a Denon amplifier for years with giant Polk audio and AR speakers plus a separately powered 15" bass for years. The sound was magnificent. One day, I had come home and the wife through them out. She said they took up too much room. This sound bar to her sounds like a theater. Good spatial sounding speakers ,however, lacks the feeling of height and rear sounds with Virtual -X. Over all , an incredible Sound Bar .

    Pros: Great sound for what I paid turns on and off with TV Improvement over TV speakers Clear voice mode compensates for no center channel

    Cons: no center channel Can't add rear speakers Bass speaker not tight sounding like Vizio 2.1 Bass speaker

    being a senior in the "golden years" which really are not very golden It took me a little bit longer to get the sound bar up and running. i,am however very pleased with my purchase. It is a great improvement over my tv speakers. Also the price is right. bottom line, if you are on a fixed income and looking to upgrade your sound at a very reasonable price don,t hesitate, BUY IT only negative issue is the wife complains about my volume at times

    It is a good soundbar, the sound is very nice, but the app is kind of a joke, the sound modes besides 3d and stereo are worthless. It does not get as loud as my vizio soundbar went. Don't expect miracles from this sound bar in terms of surround sound, but it is quality.

    Crutchfield customer from Long Island, NY on 8/21/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Great buy that packs a powerful punch. Soundbar and subwoofer create movie theater quality sound to movies and TV. 3D Surround, clear voice, bass boost are the most impactful features of the system. Only complaint was with delivery... Purchase was delivered in its original box on a rainy day. This purchase should have been delivered in a cardboard box to conceal the purchase and protect from the weather. This was my 1st order, so this could be normal, if so that is certainly disappointing.

    Pros: 3D Surround Clear Voice Bass boost Wireless subwoofer

    Decent sound

    Crutchfield customer from Charleston, SC on 8/21/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    It's our first sound bar, so I have limited experience to compare. It's so much better than the TV, but no where near as good as our old fully wired surround sound system. And we expected that, so it's ok. Not sure if it's going to be good enough for me, so it may end up in the spare bedroom, but it's decent and inexpensive and buys us time while we figure out how to fit out our new space.

    Pros: Inexpensive, easy to set-up, provides much better sound than the TV.

    Cons: The sound is good, not great, and the subwoofer is pretty weak.

    The Crutchfield salesman helped me select the right sound bar for our specific problem in a matter of minutes.. Both my husband and I have hard hearing and the voice quality of the sound bar we were recommended at another retailer had to be returned because it did not provide the clear sound clarity they promised. This is when I called Crutchfield. We received this Yamaha sound bar in approx. 3 days and it works very well. For those that cannot understand some of what is being spoken on there TV this is a great sound bar.

    Pros: Great soundbar and service.

    I really like the new features on this unit. It has great "clear voice" quality and great "surround sound" sound.

    Pros: Great price. Great "clear voice". Overall great sound quality.

    Cons: Cable/tv remote controls volume on soundbar but not on/off. Had to try several drivers to get this so maybe there is a driver that would work to do everything.

    For the minimalist YAS-207

    JD from Arizona on 6/24/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I've been dragged kicking and screaming into the world of sound bars and the Yamaha YAS-207 seems to be the answer to my problems. I wouldn't call myself an audiophile, but I do appreciate good sound. At the same time I'm a minimalist and don't like a lot of clutter. I'm old school and have an older (but high quality) Panasonic HD Plasma TV which has been set up as 5.1 through an older (but high quality) Yamaha receiver, Martin Logan towers in the front, Klipsch bookshelf in the back, Klipsch center speaker and Martin Logan powered subwoofer. In addition to the receiver I have a cd player, blu-ray player and cable box. This surround system worked well when I had a separate family/TV room and formal living room, but I've moved to a new house with a "great room". I wanted to clean it up and get an entertainment center to house all of it. I gave up pretty quickly on being able to get something to enclose the towers. Even after that I couldn't find a good piece of furniture to enclose the TV, components, center speaker and sub unless I had something custom built to the tune of $10,000. The tail seemed to be wagging the dog so I started looking into a soundbar and wireless powered subwoofer. The YAS-207 was priced right, hooked up easily and the sound (although not nearly as good as the old system) is perfectly fine for TV. It solved my clutter problems and fits into a standard entertainment center.

    Pros: Streamlined, easy to set up, price, wireless sub, works well with bluetooth

    Cons: Good sound, but not as good as high end speakers through a receiver

    I only have experience with 2 sound bars, this one and a reconditioned Samsung J250. Typical audiophile I wanted to improve my system, read reviews, and decided that this Yamaha would do what I wanted (clarity, attractive, sub woofer for a little more fullness). This unit is no where near what the J250 produced, I have yet to hear in fullness from the sub, unless I put my ear right down on the speaker and the it's just a boom. I guess Clarity needs a definition and this Yamaha doesn't come near to the Samsung. You are always going to take a chance when acquiring something you don't get to listen to before purchase, my fault for not trying to listen to it prior to purchase. It is attractive consequently a 2 instead of a 1.

    Great upgrade to TV Sound experience

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I replaced a JBL Cinema Base that failed to recognize its remote, evidently a common problem.Aftet some extensive research. I was very careful in the next selection since I wanted to take advantage of multiple formats with my Sony 3D 4K TV, 4K Sony DVD player and Apple TV. I settled on the Yamaha YAS-207 for style, features and reviews. Easy set up, firmware upgrade was quick and well documented. Adding the upgrade to take advantage of the DTS Virtual:X makes a significant difference to the sound experience. I had to experiment with positioning the wireless sub so that the sound was balanced. I found a nice spot where it's balanced out and still out of the way. The Clear Voice feature improves dialogue for the news and talk shows. Overall it's a great buy and Crutchfield's reviews, service and sales processe are unmatched,

    Pros: Sound, style, features.

    Connecting to TV via bluetooth caused serious lag so the voices didn't match mouth moments. Connecting via optical was better but then the sound was not that good. The sub is connected over bluetooth so theres lag there no mater what. That probably happens to all wireless connected systems. Sent this one back and will get a wired system soon. **The reviews for over 50% stated the sound was great, seriously need to compare it to a real system or get their hearing checked. 5 stars for Crutchfield. They understood my issues and made the return easy, defiantly shopping here more.

    Pros: Looks nice No wires to sub Easy setup

    Definitely the best bang for the buck for a sub soundbar at this price. I originally had my heart set on the Bose Soundtouch 300, but couldn't justify forking out that kind of money. Especially without a sub. I'm glad I made the fiscally responsible decision and went with the Yamaha. The Yamaha sounds fantastic, the bass is strong, and setup was very simple. I have it connected to a 65" Sony and Apple TV 4k, and whether I'm watching a movie, sports, or just listening to music, the sound is crisp and full and fills the entire first floor. Extremely pleased with this purchase. Oh, and the shipping from Crutchfield was super fast. Couldn't be happier.

    Pros: Excellent sound. Strong bass. Much smaller than a true surround system. Setup was a breeze.

    Cons: The virtual surround does a nice job for what it is, but it won't work miracles.

    Fairly easy to setup and works great

    Marty from Pleasant Pr, WI on 4/28/2018

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I bought this after doing some quick research for my Bose Solo that decided to stop working. I was looking at a local store and a review mentioned that version couldn't be updated to the DTS Virtual:X, so I looked for the original version and found it on sale from Crutchfield, Since they have great service and support I ordered it from them. The TV I connected it to had no HDMI ARC or optical output, only a digital coax output, so I had to buy a converter to connect the optical from the soundbar to the coax on the TV. It connected fairly easy and came right up after initial connection and powering on. Sub-woofer was already paired out of the box. I had to tinker with the Bluetooth option to get it switch then pair. I am still figuring out the easiest way to switch to Bluetooth as it doesn't seem to do it immediately. I tested the auto on with the TV and it didn't work, I need to review the info on that as it might only be with the HDMI ARC connection, which I don't have on the TV I am using it on at the moment. (Please note, this review was written shortly after I connected it and did some quick tests. I was delayed on connecting it due to the digital optical/digital coax converter I had to get for my setup. So I was trying to get the review in they were requesting sooner rather than later). Overall I am pleased with it with little experience with it. I'm sure I will like it more once I get used to all the variations and settings. I would definitely tell friends to get this unit.

    Pros: Easy to connect and use. Process to pair to wireless sub-woofer is simple if it isn't paired out of the box Sound options are versatile enough without being overwhelming.

    Cons: Bluetooth took a little tinkering to get to switch to it then pair with my phone.

    Like the sound but could not get the unit to work with my samsung remotes volume control due to the fact that the TV does not support ARC on its HDMI inputs. Not happy about having to use ANOTHER remote to control volume.Called support but could not advise me on any other solution. I assumed dit would be able to be configured to use my TV's remote so Iam not happy about that. Too much hassle to return it.

    Pros: Sounds good with flexible settings

    Phenomenal for the price

    Paul from New York, NY on 4/24/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Between a sale going on and some discount Crutchfield points I had, I was able to get this for much less. It replaces a YAS-106 and there's no comparison. Though I have yet to experience directional audio from the surround, the audio does fill the room as if it were coming from everywhere. The one downside, which I've seen mentioned elsewhere, is the dropoff of the subwoofer at lower volumes (which leaves the bar sounding worse than the native TV audio, which I wouldn't have thought possible), but I find rebooting the unit seems to take care of that.

    Pros: Phenomenal sound for the price Easy setup

    Cons: Subwoofer can drop off at lower volumes

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I was looking for a good-sounding, compact solution to pair with a 65" tv. This Yamaha fit the bill perfectly with its good design, ease of use, and excellent sound dynamics. Subwoofer was paired out of the box and remote control was intuitive. The ability to adjust and enhance dialogue is a major plus. I was especially excited to try out the simulated surround as this is one of the first sound bars to feature DTS Virtual:X. The experience was quite good, but the height simulation was a bit lacking. The HDMI input and ARC connectivity is nice as it allows the unit to be turned on and controlled from the remotes of other components. Overall this is a great value and will work well in most small and even medium sized rooms. Highly recommended.

    Haven't had it long enough to judge music, but TV audio is certainly more lively, if that's what you like. The Clear Voice setting works better for me. Unfortunately I can only get it to work in optical cable. HDMI ARC won't sync and I tried two TVs. Can't get BT to synch with TV or phone either.

    Bought this Yamaha YAS-207 to replace my 6+ year old Yamaha Soundbar. Was swayed by price, and DTS Virtual:X ability. Could not afford the Dolby Atmos, or high end sound projectors that exist today. This does a good job with bass, and dialogue. Coming from a prior sound projector bar, this until lacks spaciousness, even when using DTS Virual X. Setup was quick and easy, and my unit already had the DTS Firmware upgrade. For the average home listener, I think they will be more than pleased with the value, and performance of the Yamaha YAS-207.

    This system was outstanding from the start. It was easy to install and the clear voice setting works great. The clear voice setting was one of the main reasons we purchased this unit. Most of the movies made today the actors mumble or speak so softly the sound setting for normal listening make it impossible to understand what they are saying many times. The "clear voice Setting" gives that extra boost at the normal voice audio frequencies.

    Pros: Easy to install, good frequency range, simple remote easy to use

    Cons: No LED display of settings only light of each setting on or off is not distinguishable at distance

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Purchased as an upgrade to my Sony HT CH-260 soundbar purchased in 2013. The YAS-207 has the clearer dialogue I was looking for even without the 'clear voice' option enabled. Set-up is best when connecting primary source (in my case hi-def cable) to the soundbar via HDMI and then connecting the soundbar to the 4k Sony TV with HDMI through the TV's ARC connection. By using the ARC connection I can control TV on/off and soundbar on/off and volume with either my TV remote or my cable box remote without reprogramming the remote to accomodate the soundbar. You need to go to the Yamaha website for the YAS-207 firmware update that provides the DTS:X surround feature. The file is not large but it has to be downloaded to your computer from the Yamaha website. Once downloaded you should find it in your downloaded files directory as a compressed file. From there you should have an option to decompress and transfer the file. Connect a USB memory device to your computer and transfer it there. Be sure the USB memory device has no other files on it. Disconnect the USB memory device and follow the website instruction for connecting it to your soundbar to download the uncompressed firmware update file. Yes, a lot of effort but well worth it in my opinion. The sound is amazing for such a reasonably priced soundbar. Very pleased.

    Pros: Sound quality Value

    Cons: DTS:X firmware update is challenging

    I love the sound from the Yamaha YAS-207. I connected it to a Samsung 8 series and it is the perfect combination. It is crisp with a great bass. It was very easy to install.

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I have owned several systems over the years, and my favorite one incorporated a Yamaha RX-Z7 receiver. I have previously looked at sound bars for bedroom use, but they were honestly terrible. It's important to note that this will not make you think about replacing a dedicated system. Having noted that, I can assure you that if your enthusiasm for sound bars has been tempered by experience, give this a shot; it's darn admirable for the money and simplicity. As always, Crutchfield pulls through.

    Pros: Simplicity, integration into areas that don't normally integratd well. Sounds much better than sound bars I have previously demo'd.

    Cons: No display on the TV.

    This is replacing another Yamaha soundbar and seperate subwoofer. I think this is good kit for the price for a mid-sized room, but I had my reservations when I 1st purchased it. I didn't like the sound quality during the 1st week and thought of sending it back. Fast forward to present and I sometimes think my B&W 803 speakers, that are used purely for audio, are accidently on. In other words, I think this set needs some time to break-in and open up in order to reach its potential. Placement is also key. The subwoofer should be upfront and not behind you. Mine is approximately 4 ft away from the bar and against a wall. Also my soundbar is slightly elevated and 2/3's sits on a very firm foam padding, that is very hard to see, but made a significant difference to my ears, as soon as I added it.

    Pros: Price Sound

    Cons: It blocks my remote control, but that'll go away once I hang the TV and soundbar

    After speaking with Crutchfield tech support we replaced the "static popping" Klipsch soundbar with this one. Yamaha sounds and works great. No audio problems. My LG Ultra 4k tv supports syncing with other devices. Using a Premium HDMI cable between the satellite box and the soundbar, and another between the TV and soundbar (using the HDMI ARC) port, the Directv remote turns ON and OFF all devices as well as controlling volume. Slick. Everything working great. Audio is very good and the Clear Voice setting is much appreciated. Thanks Crutchfield.

    I honestly do not know why this thing is getting such high ratings. The day I received it I asked to return it. (which Crutchfield sent a return label) To my ears, the sound is horrible. Soo much treble without any mid range. Its just bad. I did the firmware upgrade for the surround to work. Im not hearing any surround. Just tons of treble and bass. Nothing in between. I really tried to like it. I hate returning things. Movies on Netflix sound ok. But on cable, its bad. Then I fired up my Xbox One. That was the straw. For gaming. Its horrible! Almost useless.

    It's safe to say that at this price point, this sound bar beats out the competition in the price range. This is top of the line for this segment. Of course yamaha bar does a great job with the mids and highs, but paired with its powerful sub the unit truly rocks the house. Where it truly excels is cinematic audio - When it's used with DTS:X content it's quite good. Not as good as a more expensive DTS:X or Atmos bar, but for the money, again... This can't be bested.

    First and foremost, I love this sound bar. So why the low rating? I am on my third unit. Crutchfield was kind enough to replace my initial purchase. Then the same issue happened again. The subwoofer will randomly pop. And not quietly, it's like the cork off of a champagne bottle. Then Yamaha was kind enough to warranty exchange with me. That all went smoothly and the new sound bar showed up relatively quick. Which was super cool of them. But, here's that but. I have the same dang issue. Is it my house? My house is new (2008). I've tried three different placements l, even one next to the soundbar. If anyone has any idea what I am doing wrong please let me know. I'm frustrated because I really like this soundbar. If anyone knows, even the people at Crutchfield. Please contact me.

    Pros: Room filling sound! It really is as advertised.

    Good amount of bass and well built without rattles. The highs could be a bit more clear however. Easy to use and setup, seems like a good purchase.

    The next best thing to a full blown home theater system

    Kris from Califon, NJ on 2/2/2018

    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Never had a sound bar before, so don't really have a comparison point, but this Yamaha is unreal. Watched a movie for the first time using it last night and was blown away by the sound clarity both dialogue and music. The subwoofer really pumps, and the sound bar far exceeded my expectations. I have this paired to a 43" TV in a bedroom, and I dare say I like the sound quality better than the high end setup in my main home theater room. Maybe I have some tweaking to do on my main system.

    Pros: Quality construction, Yamaha reputation, crisp and clear dialogue and bass.

    Cons: None so far, love this. Wish Music Cast was included at this price point.

    The receiver produces good quality sound and I like the Clear Voice feature. The subwoofer is a little too 'boomy' for my small room, so I have it turned down almost as far as it will go and I still get plenty of bass. I have not yet succeeded in connecting this sound bar to my Samsung TV via HDMI and getting both sound and picture, but Crutchfield's tech support did try to help with that. It works okay with the digital optical cable.

    Pros: Good sound Clear Voice feature

    Cons: HDMI (ARC) may require some fiddling

    Great Value Soundbar

    Great value IMHO. Easy setup. Sounds amazing. Had to try twice to get the firmware update to load, but no big deal. The phone app is the best interface for my purposes, but it doesn't seem to auto-connect to the soundbar, so I will need to do some further investigation on that. This is the first component I've used that is equipped with HDMI ARC and it works great with my LG tv.

    Pros: Great Value. HDMI ARC. Convenient phone app.

    Cons: None, so far.

    Excellent choice for my use. No regrets. It was easy to install and the Bluetooth sub woofer makes it even better reducing the wire clutter. The sound is amazing for my use (average user). It pumps enough bass for my taste. Other reviewers say that they cannot get the volume control level on their TV but I think it is just a matter of setup. I was able to program the unit as an auxiliary device on my Charter cable remote and I see the volume control on my TV, which by the way is 6 years old. The surround and clear voice options are also great.

    Pros: Great sound bar all around. No complaints

    Cons: None at the time of this review

    We like the better sound it gives us instead of the tin can sound coming from our Vizio tv. The set up was very easy and it's great to listen to music from our Ipad with the Bluetooth connection. We like it so far.

    Pros: Bluetooth connection

    Cons: No volume displayed on tv is the only complaint we have with it.

    Great sound for a "budget system"

    Ken from Texas on 1/8/2018

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    First off I would like to thank David my advisor. I had 3 sound bars in mind, he informed me about them all. I chose this one and said here we go. This thing sounds better than a budget bar, with the right settings it rivals my 2.1 system with a Sony home theater receiver and 150 watt sub and two bookshelf spkrs @ 100 watts x 2. Not sure about the virtual x yet, but i did download & upload the update to the unit. Trying different settings to get the best out of the unit is what I did. The app helps also.

    Pros: Very good surround sound, bass is good for a 6 1/4 woofer with 100 watts.

    Cons: Sub Crossover not adjustable: Crossover frequency causes voices to be carried through the sub at times. Keeping the sub near the bar helps with not hearing this.

    Quality build and overall sound.

    James from Mountainside, NJ on 12/28/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    The Yamaha YAS-207 is perfect for my 14'x20' room and fits my needs perfectly. The equipment is well made and aesthetically pleasing. The sub-woofers compact design is well thought out and fits in a small area. My only problem hooking it up to my 4 year-old Samsung TV, was that my TV didn't allow for the use of the supplied optical cable, so I had to purchase 2 HDMI cables. Also, the base of the TV projected out 3' away from the screen causing the sound bar to sit way too far onto the TV stand, which was remedied by cutting two pieces of black neoprene pipe insulation and attaching them to the bottom of the sound bar with double-stick tape. This added to the height of the sound bar allowing it to bridge the TV base and tuck in tightly to the screen. An added benefit to elevating the bar is, now it has greater air circulation beneath it. The surround sound is superior compared to the television speakers, and is great for listening to Pandora radio over the TV. Overall, I am very pleased with the build quality and sound of this equipment, but the bass could be a little bit deeper for my taste.

    Pros: Great sound for the money. Quality construction. Aesthetically pleasing.

    Cons: Sub Woofer is a little weak.

    Works well, subwoofer cross-over is horrible.

    Erik from Cumming, GA on 12/23/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Purchased this for my new LG OLED TV set-up and previously had an older Yamaha 203 from a few years back that I was looking to update. Since I had a great experience with the older Yamaha 203, I purchased this 207. Everything appeared to work great until the subwoofer issue came to light. During normal action scenes, explosions, music, action scenes; the sound system worked great. With the virtual surround firmware update, the sound appeared to come from all angles which I was very pleased with. However, the subwoofer cross-over has issues. When a male actor/person talks, the subwoofer comes on and off, and makes a funny "bass/gurgle" sound as the sub is commanded on and back off from the cross-over. I called Crutchfield tech support with the issue and was offered great advice and troubleshooting help. There are no "settings" to change over than bass volume and bass extension, and clear voice when people are talking. Changing these made no difference. I tried changing input/output modes, switched from HDMI ARC to Optical, and back, etc with no resolution. Crutchfield expedited me another unit. However, it does the exact same noise, to the point that its just annoying to have the subwoofer on when not needing it. So I thought to myself, why even have the sound system if I can't have the whole thing lol? So I am returning the second unit and changing to a Sony HT-CT800, and I will update this review with the differences since they are in the same price range

    Pros: Sound bar sounds great. Sound comes from all angles with DTS Firmware update Easy to use and install

    Cons: Subwoofer cross-over is too broad and comes on with voices and sounds horrible. No adjustment whatsoever with cross-overs.

    JT's Review Of The Yamaha YAS-207

    JT from Great Neck, NY on 12/16/2017

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    I recently purchased the Yamaha YAS-207 soundbar to compliment my new TV (LG 65 SJ8000 4K Super UHD Smart LED TV) and after evaluating a number of products, I felt the YAS-207 was the correct choice for my set up, chiefly due to its HDMI/HDR pass-through to feed the audio output from the OPPO UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player I bought to feed a quality signal to the TV with. Set up was awesomely simple right out of the box, couldn't have taken more than 3 or 4 minutes topps! Everything worked as advertised & anticipated right out of the box, virtually no pairing issues, and utilizing the optical cable to connect the TV to the soundbar, I'm VERY satisfied with the quality of audio this soundbar provides. I don't live in a huge place, and the location where I've got my TV set up is about a 25 foot by 20 foot room, so even cranking the volume up to moderate levels, with the sub woofer turned up only +2, I'm receiving excellent sound which really compliments the picture on my TV. Updating the firmware was a breeze, even using a wi-fi connection initially - the device has a USB service port, you just download the update to a memory stick, turn off the unit, insert the stick, press the sequence of buttons to initiate the update when turning on the device, & about a minute later, it's ready to go! I will also point out I purchased the product from Crutchfield due to the purchases I've made in the past, I have always enjoyed their level of service & support

    Pros: Amazing Sound Quality, ergonomically appealing, Ease of setup, price, features.

    Cons: Would have liked to see an auto-shut off feature for the device in general, other than only with the HDMI input. It's NOT a big deal, as this is in NO WAY a power hog, but it seems the auto power off functionality only works when you have the HDMI ARC channel connected, Perhaps this may be changed with a future software update?

    Yamaha hits a home run with this upgrade from tv's sound. If you dont have the room or finances for a full blown sound system this is the way to go. Easy peasy set-up and looks good too. The sound processing makes it seem like I have extra speakers in the room.

    First plugged in with optical cable and was great, I had to use its remote to control it. Then I plugged in the HDMI via ARC on my Sony XBR65X850E and game changer. The soundbar's power and volume is controlled with the tv remote. Sound quality was great before the update, then I updated with the USB which was fairly simple just follow the instructions exactly, after the update it sounds awesome! I love sound quality in home audio, car audio etc. and the soundbar's sound quality for the money cannot be beat. Yes there is better but for price you will be amazed. I have a large living room with high ceilings and this fills up the room quite nicely. The 3d surround is great, I am amazed how well it sounds for coming out of such a small bar. I place the subwoofer behind my couch in the corner of the room and it gives it more of a surround sound. It gets loud enough and the bass is pretty powerful for a 6 1/4". Bluetooth works great! I am very satisfied with this soundbar.

    Pros: everything

    Great Soundbar for the price. I ordered two Polk Magnifi Mini's first and both unites had glitches with ARC not working correctly even after the updates. I was also not a big fan of their overall sound (sounded very small like a Bluetooth speaker) The Yamaha YAS-207 is a big step up in overall sound quality and got even better after the firmware update. The soundstage is wide and opened with 3D surround active (blue light on Soundbar will be on). This is the best sounding bar in the price range and could beat some that are double the price. Highly recommend.

    An attractive sound bar set with loads of features, and very nice sound. I particularly like the video pass through feature. The HDMI input is connected to our Apple TV and the HDMI output (ARC) is connected to our Sony flatscreen. We also have the sound bar connected (via analog input) to our Denon amp's Zone 3. We control the sound bar and Apple TV with the Sony TV's remote, so everything is seamless. My one gripe is that the subwoofer is not that noticeable, given it's 100 W RMS rating (even with the subwoofer's volume turned all the way up).

    Pros:

    Cons:
