The Yamaha virtualizes sound in different dimensions without the need of using several speakers.

It is the world's first sound bar that has the DTS virtual feature. The Bluetooth feature has been enhanced, and you can comfortably connect your devices to the system and stream all your favorite hits with no awkward sound production.

The folks at Amazon also have their own list of best bluetooth sound bars below – many are on sale. 

 

The system can be controlled smartly using an application that can be downloaded and installed on your smartphone. The application is very user-friendly and allows you to make the necessary sound tweaks to fit your needs.

The application works pretty well and gives you more options to stay in controlled apart from the conventional remote controller. After buying the system, you do not need to engage in lengthy connection procedures as the setup is very elementary.

Product Size

It has been mentioned that this system is very slim and a natural fit into your TV system. It only weighs 6lbs with the subwoofer weighing 17.4 lbs. Approximate dimensions of the center unit are 36-5/8 x 4-1/4 x 2-3/8 inches and the sub-woofer is 7-1/8 x 17-1/4 x 15-3/4 inches. It is black, and the speakers are surround.

  • Has an improved Bluetooth feature to allow users to stream music from their devices.
  • Can be controlled using the remote control, an application on your smartphone or through the existing TV remote.
  • Easy to set up with a high-performance connectivity.

Cons

  • It is a bit hectic to get the firmware update to access the added features.

Price

The Yamaha sound bar can be acquired for under $300. The package contains the central unit, one subwoofer, a single HDMI cable and a stereo mini jack.

Looking at the price, I might be tempted to say that it is a bit too much for a sound bar. However, the features are quite tempting. We have to give credit to this system as it is wirelessly connected and has an enhanced Bluetooth feature without forgetting the DTS virtual feature. These functions can justify the hefty price tag.
