Even as a refurbished unit from amazon; the quality is impressive. Perfect for my condo. The only drawback is that it didn't come with it's own cables.
Easy hookup to my samsung tv. Linked great with my samsung tv. Works great, and i was surprised when i realized the apple tv controller would also control the speaker.
Remote was hit or miss. It keeps shutting off.
Was skeptical towards sound bars. Crisp and detailed sound. My only regret is that after hearing the great sound quality, i wish i would have went with the 9 series version.
Subwoofer works with other yamaha sound bars. Plug in the sub woofer and it pairs to the sound bar. Great sound quality.
It's almost like the amp circuitry was forgotten. If you just want the cheapest one, with only ok sound — then this is your product.
The sound is out of sync with the tv. Tried different streaming platforms, same result. Every now and then a defective product gets past quality control.
Going to costco to get a nice sounding bose soundbar. They aren't exceedingly bad, but they are only one tier above the worst out there.
