Pros and Cons
Pros1

The sound is good and the volume is very loud when turned all the way up. It works great connected via the aux cord. For the price, it cant be beaten.

Cons1

Audio is horrible for television. Have to use headphones connection. Bluetooth connection sounds is horrible. They advertise 12 watts but that’s peak.

Pros4

The bass ext really adds a solid low end.

The yas 209-bl has great bass and a clear, smooth tone for our living room. It has a subwoofer output to add any sub rather than a prepackaged setup. Bluetooth sub is of heavy quality and sound bar is very long with 2 hdmi and a usb.

Yamaha sound control works with hdmi arc and hdmi cec signals. Set up by downloading the yamaha app and downloading the firmware update in the process. I have a samsung tv, but i stream using a roku.

The audio quality is amazing compared to * built-in tv speakers, but don’t expect it to compete with some cinematic 7. Surround sound. There are multiple sound settings such as tv, movies, music that adjust the sound output for optimum playback.

Cons3

Sounded like static in a tin can. Could not distinguish guitars or riffs on any of the presets. I can't get the controls on the bar or remote to do anything, i have to unplug the bar to shut it off. The info button does nothing.

There's what looks like a wi-fi light on the top. The app is horrible and you expect them to set it up with this app? Still no connection to the iphone. Can't get phone app to work either.

The sound out of the sound bar tends to be very muddy. At this point the app is useless since it can't find the soundbar. No real improvement from the tv's speaker quality.
