Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good with a subwoofer added Having posted a bad review of this sound bar Richer Sounds got in touch and were very helpful. I bought a Yamaha YSTFSW050BL subwoofer which is quite compact and sits behind the tv. The sound is massively improved with the bass added. I just have to remember to switch it on and off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid as sound is dire I have a Yamaha YAS-306 soundbar which sounds very good so I bought one of these. However the Bar 40 sound is dismal. No bass at all. Only plus is it works with my other MusicCast equipment. Which Review: Our experts described the sound as dull, boring and headache-inducing. Sound lacks bass and depth My £300 LG TV has far better sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staff very friendly and knowledgeable I brought this a few weeks ago. The soundbar is great. And I am so glad I brought it from richer sounds. The prices are very good. They don't try to sell you the most expensive products and they don't pressure you when in the shop. They have lots of knowledge about the products and give good advice on how to set it up. Also you can't beat the 6 year warranty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Quality Product from Yamaha Had been looking at connected speaker systems primarily for playing music from a NAS and this sound bar got my attention because it ticked that box, made a great addition for my TV all at a very competitive price. The unit was very simple to setup using the MusicCast controller app (Android version in my case) and with the supplied optical cable soon experimenting with the sound options from the TV including the surround sound options and clear voice function. The App and remote have very useful 'Favourite' button assignments so have Planet Rock assigned to one and another to the music I have stored on a NAS. Both work flawlessly and the sound is as you'd expect with the Yamaha name so plenty of depth and clarity regardless of whether your watching a movie or listening to music. If your looking for a music streaming solution which sounds great, isn't overpriced like Sonos systems I would highly recommend Yamaha's MusicCast devices. I've since purchased a MusicCast 20 on the back of getting the Soundbar and will get a further one in due course.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely requires a sub Bought this to replace my ageing Yamaha HTY-760 sound projector , the 760 without the sub blows this out of the water . Most of our listening is done with just the soundbar/projector as the wife doesn't like the bass from the sub , the bar 40's sound is very lightweight when compared even with the bass extension on whereas the 760 has more depth and even has a very good stab at bass . The bar 40's saving grace is with it being almost a metre long has a better frontal sound stage than the 760 . It's also lacking on the connectivity front too and there's not as much adjustment for the sound etc , turn on the Cambridge Audio minx sub and the two work together very nicely indeed . Factor in a sub if your considering the bar 40 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding soundbar! A real pleasure to use. I'd been looking for a new soundbar for a while. I knew I wanted one that sounded great for movies, TV and music, that had multiroom capability and also the option to add wireless rear surround speakers. This was the one I settled on and I couldn't be happier, it's brilliant!
