quick version: It sounds as good as you could expect for a system of this price. No soundbar, including really expensive ones, is going to be better than even the cheapest brand name "home theatre in a box" when it comes to filling a room with directionalized sound. I would have given this system 5 stars if it had HDMI control. Also, if you're concerned about dolby, you should figure out if your television set sends the original audio signal out or one that has been converted to 2 channel. If your set does the latter, you should plug it directly into the media source if possible.
Product is packaged nicely. The gloss finish on the main speaker seems like a fingerprint magnet (which is ok, you probably won't be touching it much) and also makes it feel kind of cheap. Well it is relatively cheap on the price scale, so no hard feelings there. Comes with everything you need to get started.
Physically setting up the system wasn't difficult at all. Simply set the main speaker where you want it and plug the optical cable (it comes with one) into your source - in my case the television itself. The subwoofer is wireless but needs a power source of course. I have mine just to the side with the cable box, but bass isn't really directional, so you could put it wherever you think is most convenient. I will say that the main speaker cord could be longer.
When I turned on the system, the subwoofer connected automatically without any issue. I had to wade through some TV menus to turn off the set speakers and route the audio to the soundbar. Obviously the ease of that depends on your TV. My set allows the unfiltered multi-channel signal to pass through, which the speakers will attempt to recreate (more on that later). Once I was getting sound, I had to turn my focus to remote controls. Probably the only major downside of this soundbar is that it doesn't use HDMI control. Instead, you train it to respond to the same signals as your TV remote. The training was easy enough - you start the sequence and then press the appropriate buttons to program - but it makes for some needlessly annoying moments at times
- If I don't have the TV remote pointed at the right angle it might "miss" one or the other, resulting in me having to walk up there and manually turn on one or the other. It also renders the cable box remote useless for this purpose; I think the burst it sends to the TV is too short to capture both the TV and the soundbar reliably
- Anytime I change the volume I get a message from the TV that "the volume is fixed." (Of course it is, I turned off the speakers). But with HDMI control you could actually get visual feedback on the TV as to your volume level.
Assuming you got your remote programming sorted out, it's pretty easy to use. Instead of a slick-looking LED screen, all your information is given by a few status lights in the front. A quick look at the manual can orient you as to what they mean. It's not very complicated. The remote allows you to adjust the volume and bass level. Basically I just cranked up the bass level and put the remote away in a drawer. There are some other more advanced audio profile settings you can play with, but you need to download an app to your phone and connect to Bluetooth - another downside, though I'm sure in the end, it gives you more options than you would find in competing products.
On most flat panel TVs, the speakers are in the rear and pointed down. Also the drivers have to be pretty flat to fit inside the screen. In other words, you have laptop speakers which are pointed backwards. If you're expecting this soundbar to replace even your $300 home theater in a box, you are going to be sorely disappointed. Instead, it's more like someone took some small speakers, spaced them apart, and pointed them in the right direction + added a subwoofer - all this without the hassle of an extra amplifier or superfluous wiring. But that is not an indictment of this product, it's just a simple fact when it comes to soundbars. You can't expect it to be as loud and you can't expect comparable directionality. Yamaha claims that the subtle convex shape helps the bar to "throw" sound towards the corner to recreate a surround effect, but this will be a mostly untrue claim if you have an open floorplan. Overall, it makes the speech clearer and adds some much needed bass and depth. You could spend a lot more money on a higher-end soundbar, but at that point, I would say you are better off getting an actual 5.1 or 7.1 system
Other than the optical cable, this system is perfect for the price point. The optical cable that it came with died within 24 hours, so plan on buying one anyway.
The wireless sub is great and really does connect seamlessly. Sounds great.
Sound is great, family loves it. When watching normal network programs the sound is very clear on the dialogue. When you are watching a movie, it obviously has the capabilities of producing quality sounds there as well.
I'm not an audiophile, I just wanted really good sound out of a system that would actually pair up and run off the one remote, and still have the abilities to make movies sound great without compromising on regular TV which we watch 90% of the time.
Replaced a home theatre system when the DVD player locked up, lost all of my sounds capabilities as well, so going the component route here seemed like a better solution.
