Another big issue is there's a lot of difficulty getting a good hdmi handshake connection. Sometimes the connection is fine and others I'll have no sound at all. Sometimes it will downgrade my video connection from rgb full to 420 limited, I'm connected to my media center PC running a GTX 1080.
I've tried using 7 different brand new certified HDMI cables, 2 different brands. I've found 2 cables that work more often than not but I'm thinking the problem lies more with the soundbar than my cables.
The sound going up and down and Base cutting in and out is enough to give up on this. Not sure why so many people love it. At low volume this is horrible. I'll be returning it.
This is my second unit. I originally purchased a used one from amazon warehouse deals. I had the same problem and thought that unit was defective. I replaced that with a brand new one. Same problem. It's a design or engineering defect. Both units were running the latest DTS X firmware update.
I suggest you pass on this unless you plan to play this at high volume all the time. If you watch at low volume and like heavy dialog shows then definitely pass on this. Or you'll be returning it like me.
Original review as of 1-Jul-2017:
Key features of YAS-207:
1) So far its surround sound can be heard from horizontal directions as DTS Virtual:X is not yet available. After firmware update (which according to Yamaha will be available in August this year) you will be able to listen to DTS Virtual:X enveloping surround sound coming from above at varying heights.
2) It comes with wireless subwoofer for dynamic sound.
3) It transmits 4K HDR video. There is an ARC-HDMI output jack.
4) It's Bluetooth got version 4.1, class 2
5) There is dedicated Yamaha app to control soundbar's settings from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. You'd need to download it free from Apple or Android Play store.
6) Its bass extension boosts low bass levels for a remarkable powerful sound.
7) Its Clear Voice option, if enabled, will make dialogues and narrations sound clearer.
8) YAS-207 supports these audio signals:
- PCM (up to 5.1ch)
- Dolby Digital (up to 5.1ch)
- DTS Digital Surround (up to 5.1ch)
The only drawback that I see - lack of Wi-Fi connectivity. The firmware update (promised by Yamaha in August) you'd have to make through a USB drive by downloading the update file from Yamaha's support website first, then plugging that USB drive to the USB jack on the back side of the soundbar, following instructions provided to complete the firmware upgrade to DTS Virtual:X.
I bought the Yamaha YAS-201 back in 2013 and was amazed. Over time it started to lose connection with the subwoofer and decided to upgrade to the YAS-207BL. Out of the box, it was very comparable to the YAS-201. It had a great sound and was well powered.
Then the upgrade to DTS Virtual:X...The only way to describe it is magical.
What a difference a little bit of software makes. The sound bar seemed to get a boost in power and the range became more dynamic. What's amazing about this sound bar is not only does it produce a fantastic sound, but it actually sounds natural. Granted, this will never compare to a professionally installed 7.1 system and it shouldn't. However, I've thrown ever level of audio at it (DD 5.1, 7.1, DTS, DTS TrueHD) and I've been impressed every time.
One thing I did different this time is to mount it above the TV. With the WALI SBR201 Universal Sound Bar Bracket I was able to raise the Yamaha's sound stage to above the TV and it made a huge improvement with the surround effect.
I returned this and purchased a Yamaha YAS-107BL instead (so no external wireless subwoofer).
Otherwise the sound was good on the 207BL. Bluetooth connectivity was good as well.
Update: Just to be clear, the subwoofer wouldn't lose connectivity with the soundbar. In our situation the subwoofer was about 18 inches away from the soundbar and was oriented so I could see the status light on the back. It was always steady green. The sound 'cutout' seemed to be more of a crossover frequency issue.
While watching a show, the sound would get 'tinny' sounding and then the bass would come back in and it would sound normal.
It would sometimes do that several times in a two minute segment. It got most annoying and distracting.

edit 20181228: I subsequently found that positioning of the sub-woofer in relation to the TV seemed to make a big difference in awareness of the sub woofer. When I noticed the cutting in/out, the sub-woofer was positioned behind the viewers. When positioned in front of viewers near the TV the sub-woofer was clearly still improving sound, but the awareness of it changing during viewing was not there.
Excellent seller and answered any questions I had, great communication and quick delivery. I highly recommend this seller.
I installed the unit and used for two days. It was working very well and the sound was also good in all aspects. But from the third day of installation, it's Subwoofer was not working and started blinking a red led light on it's rear side. while connecting the Subwoofer to AC supply, the total unit started mis functioning and sometimes while switching on TV, the ARC function was not working and I have to manually switch on the main unit of Yamaha YAS 207. It was totally a wastage of my time and I don't know whether the product was defective at the time of delivery or is it like Yamaha Audio products in India are less reliable? And while I tried to contact Yamaha Audio Support, it's available in Mon-Fri, day time only.
While a customer spending nearly 27K for an audio system, the brand also should be a responsible one. Because of my old Sony Speaker System's low reliability only I have tried for a new one from Yamaha. But it gave me more worst experience than the old one. I don't think this is a reliable speaker system and they are not having a good customer support. If Yamaha's Customer Support was good enough, there was no need to return this Yamaha YAS 207 to the Amazon seller.
huge disappointment ..., its very bad ... Not at all worth buying this sound bar... If you are planing worth testing in showroom. Only somewhat good was watching movie with this. My Samsung TV audio quality was better than the central unit of subwoofer. Subwoofer is very strong .. but there is a problem of crossover ... And too much reverberation ...
Good support from Amazon and seller .. got the refund.
The system adopts very well to various listening situations like news, sports, movies etc. The 'Clear Voice' feature works great. The Bass is solid and wholesome. Great buy!
