      Poor Dialog

      Posted
      Duder43

      We have this Yamaha YAS-207 BL connected to HDMI Port 1 on our Vizio M55-E0 using an HDMI High-Speed Cable. Then we have another HDMI High Speed Cable going from our Dish Hopper 3 to the Input on the YAS-207 BL. Vizio M55-E0 Audio Setting: Auto or PCM depending on our mood. YAS-207 Settings: Surround Sound, HDMI, Clear Voice. Subwoofer Setting - 4 or 0 depending on what we are watching. HDMI Arc works great right out of the box. We placed the subwoofer next to the TV stand with the soundbar so they are maybe 2 feet apart from each other. At first the sound blew me away when upgrading from a really basic Vizio 2.0 soundbar that was wired to an old Sony Subwoofer making it a 2.1 setup. It can produce a much wider frequency range and where some sound effects with the old soundbar would get muddled this handled them with ease. We first started noticing the dialog problems when actors with any significant amount of bass in their voices began speaking at medium to low volume level settings. The dialog will jump from the soundbar to the subwoofer and then back again in the same scene which makes it sound like the actors voice is jumping around the room. This issue persists in Stereo Mode or Surround Sound Mode on TV and movies. The dialog problem persisted on the Dish Hopper, Chrome Cast and any apps on the Vizio TV such as Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, Youtube, etc... Vocals felt very small requiring high amounts of volume until we would either switch the Vizio Audio to PCM only or disable Dolby Digital and Volume Leveling on the Dish Hopper. This greatly improved treble and voices became easier to hear when the volume was low but comes at the cost of commercials playing louder than some TV shows and missing some sound effects. Cranking the volume watching a movie as some other reviewers suggest will really let this soundbar sing and it produces excellent overall sound in that situation. But when you are trying to watch something late a night with family in bed it's sometimes easier to switch to Analog and use the TV speakers. We didn't notice the dialog issue until it was past the 14 day return period otherwise this would have gone back to the store. Contacted Yamaha for support regarding the dialog problems and they advised there is no permanent fix since the crossover is set extremely high on this model and cannot be modified. The only solution to mitigate the problem is to enable Clear Voice and set the subwoofer to the lowest setting which is -4. Again this does not resolve the problem. We tested different HDMI Cables and Optical just to be sure before contacting Yamaha. I am disappointed that the company never tested, discovered or decided to fix the dialog issues when testing this product before public release. Since most people are purchasing a soundbar to upgrade from their TV speakers or simplify their setup I do not suggest getting this product unless you can keep the volume high. In that situation you may still encounter the dialog problems so I would really suggest testing it out before committing to make sure you can live with it.

      I have owned many surround sound systems over the years (Bose, Visio, Samsung, Yamaha, Sony, Pioneer) along with soundbars over the last 20 years. I am experienced in audio recording as well. This Yamaha soundbar is great! To get the best sound, you need to use HDMI 2.0 over ARC. Some TV's do not support ARC. The sound is crisp, clear, and fills the room. The bass does not distort the sound at all. While watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2, it sounded at times that spacecrafts were flying past me. The surround feature works great when needed. Unlike other soundbars, it does simulate every sound in surround sound. It only gives you the surround effect when it is called for. Honestly if I closed my eyes and listened to this soundbar not knowing what it was, I would guess that the price was anywhere from 500 to 800 dollars. It is important to make sure you have the right setup to get the best sound from this unit. There is no way I would spend even 500 on the Bose soundtouch 300 after paying $300 for the Yamaha Yas 207. I just can't talk enough about it. It allows 4k and HDR passthrough, It is equipped with CES so I can control the volume with my TV remote. If your on the fence about this, give it a try. I don't see how anybody can give a bad review on this product.

      Excellent, affordable soundbar

      Originally looked at the Polk Signa S1, which sounded excellent, and the Sony HTNT5 ( I know, very different soundbar price and performance categories), which was exceptional, but expensive. I have a 24x24 family room and wanted something to complement a 65" Sony Bravia 930e TV. I did not want something that would overtake the room, or shake the entire house, just something that would give great sound when we occasionally have family movie night. This soundbar split the difference between the two models above nicely. This sound fills the room nicely, and offers reasonably strong bass, but it never overpowers the room. Separation is very good, but the soundbar is not so large that it offers separation as god as the Sony or some of the other premium bars. If you want a full on sonic assault, get the sony HTNT5, or a more premium bar from another brand. Overall, this is a well balanced bar in terms of sound, and offers excellent sound reproduction, and some extra but not overpowering bass. It is probably the best choice for overall sound clarity in the sub $500 range, and if is certainly loud enough for any movies we've thrown at it in our decently large family room. I did find the simulated surround mode (needs firmware update on earlier models to achieve this) hit or miss, some movies and music it helped, others it seemed to garble the sound. This unit delivers great sounding music, TV, and movie soundtracks. Strong but not overpowering bass. Compact overall size. Seems to deliver overall performance that exceeds the cost of the system. If you want more overall power, get the sony HTNT5, if you want more pounding bass, try the JBL cinema or 3.1 bar, and if you are on a tighter budget or have a smaller space and want great sound, try the Polk signa S1 . I am very happy with this bar, but I think any of the above would suit all but the most fanatic audiophiles.

      Excellent sound but with problems

      I bought this soundbar because I had a good experience with another Yamaha speaker and I used to have a Yamaha receiver that I really liked to. I am not an audiophile but I've got good ears. After firmware upgrade this Soundbar produces excellent sound fields for some content. As reported by other users, the soundbar has problems with bass tones in spoken speech, with it sometimes swapping between bass tones and not during dialogue. I'm not sure but I think an adjustment of the crossover frequency might work but this is not available either through the Bluetooth app or on the controller. They could have provided that as a dial on the subwoofer itself. I've also had a few instances when the Sound Stage was muddled with the background drowning out the foreground on TV programs. But also in some programs The Sound Stage was amazing, being able to throw sounds behind The Listener. The Soundbar also does not turn on when I turn on the TV. I have to turn it on manually. Wife is not happy with this problem. I'm running the TV using an older HDMI cable that I can't change so maybe that is the problem. Don't bother with the Bluetooth sound connection to the TV. The resulting sound is really compressed and does not compare at all to the band width of the HDMI connection. If you have multiple devices (it only has one HDMI in port) be sure to use the provided Optical sound line. For some reason that skinny little optical fiber provides better connection than a stock optical fiber connection. My advice to Yamaha would be to provide an app that gives more control over the adjustments on the soundbar. I don't mind that the Soundbar doesn't have a lot of controls or feedback from the soundbar but I would like the Bluetooth connected app to provide more control, especially on the subwoofer crossover frequency. That flopping over between base and not base during dialogue is really annoying. Fortunately music from the TV channels is really good.

      New Sound Bar

      My old Panasonic sound bar finally died and I needed a new one. Went to Best Buy in Lake Geneva Wisconsin and checked out what they had on hand. I was ready to spend up to $500.00 on one if I found what I wanted. Listen to Klipsch, JBL, LG, and Samsung. The one I wanted to hear was not set up in the store, it was too new and had not hooked up as of yet. It was the Yamaha and was not too happy I could not listen to it. But I'm an old Audiophile and Yamaha always made quality equipment; plus I researched reviews from other sites and found nothing but positive reviews. So I threw caution to the wind and bought the Yamaha. DARN, it was the right choice!!!! It sounds GREAT and has this option called clear voice that enhances the voices in the news, sports programs and so on; works like a charm. This is a GREAT sound Bar at a reasonable price. I liked it better than anything else I listened to at the store. The hook-up took less than five minutes and I was listening to GREAT sound from a Flat screen. Great Product! I give it 5 Stars!!!!!

      After listening to everything Best Buy had, with a subwoofer, for under $1,000, I thought this system offered very good sound. For music, it has good high frequency and more than adequate bass, if you like accurate bass reproduction. (for a tv audio system. same as the taking-a-picture-with-a-phone thing) The Bluetooth feature works well, also, and sounds better than my Bose Soundwave III. I think the clear voice feature works very well with dialog, which is the key reason we wanted a sound bar. It's a 2.1, so it doesn't do surround sound very well, although I have caught myself looking around the room a few times. Paired with the visually mind-blowing LG OLED B7A and LG 4K DVD. So, my bottom line is - best bang for the buck for less than $600. And that's all I have to say about that.

      This soundbar is great. Purchased new LG Oleg TV that was supposed to have great sound, bit after playing blu ray, I needed more. After much research opted for this. Love the sound. Has adjustable bass (from remote) . Just a WARNING. This soundbar had a software upgrade around June 2017. Since I purchased mine in May 2018 I didn't anticipate any issues. When I picked up my order, I found date on box prior to fix. It took a good while for me to get the upgrade to work. Tried to get Best Buy to get me newer unit but manager said he couldn't guarantee what warehouse would send.. I was not happy about that response

      I got this soundbar for my new entertainment set up. I got a new 65" 4K Sony TV. I run the TV, a 4K DVD player and a PS4 Pro. All sound goes from the TV Toslink cable to this soundbar. Right out of the box this soundbar is great. The bass pairs automatically and it truly is plug and play. I am no audiophile, I just wanted something easy and simple. The remote is nice. Clear voice is a plus. Surround and Stereo sound is great. I know there is a DTX feature but I don't think I will need it. Movie sound is amazing and CD's played through the DVD player are awesome. This sound system can crank. Always liked Yamaha products. I am not disappointed.
