Value for money

Excellent 2.1 channel soundbar for the price. Features like dts:x and clear voice improves the audible dialouges while watching tv shows and movies. Bass is decent for a mid size living room. I have paired it with 100w yamaha subwoofer for that extra thump. Please note that this soundbar doesnt decode Dolby Digital+ which is used by netflix and amazon for 5.1 surround output. It has support for 4k hdr passthrough and HDMI ARC which is not seen in any soundbar of this price range. For best experience connect your devices like firestick/Android tv box/PS4/Xbox to HDMI IN of the soundbar and HDMI out of soundbar to ARC enabled HDMI port on the TV. In this way you can use your tv remote to control all connected devices provided all hdmi devices are CEC enabled. In case TV doesnt have ARC , use the supplied optical cable.
Yamaha HT android app allows you to change soundbar settings via bluetooth but it seems too clumsy and slow. Bluetooth pairing works well anf you can play music via your mobile. Overall a good soundbar for tv if you dont want the hassle of a avr/5.1 home theater.
