Comments about Yamaha MusicCast YSP-2700 107W 7.1-Channel Soundbar System - Black:
After listening to many products I believe the YSP-2700 is near the top of the heap for soundbar + sub solutions for those of us not wanting multiple speakers but still crave immersive sound.
Using the product with a Sony XBR65X930D, the improvement was immediately apparent, even without yet doing the automatic optimization routine. With an oddly shaped room I'm not getting peak performance, but the simulated surround effects are still apparent. Simply turning the YSP-2700 off automatically routes sound back to the TV's internal speakers, when using HDMI ARC, so comparisons are quick and easy.
The on screen display could be expanded, such as for volume and subwoofer levels, because the display on the unit itself an be hard to make out unless the room is dark. Also, support for Yamaha's Home Theater Controller App would add great convenience.
The subwoofer will not shake your house off its foundations, but it's convincing, I think it produces effects similar to what the sound engineers intended for the various sources I've tried out.
There are cheaper products that come close to this performance level, but there are also more expensive options that don't sound as good. Yamaha has a winner in this price range, everything Sat TV, discs, streaming sources sound clearer and better.
