”The Yamaha YAS-209 is an excellent budget soundbar that delivers a highly competent performance.” ’AV Forums’ – Recommended.

The sound to match your big TV

While TVs get bigger their sound quality often continues to disappoint. The Yamaha YAS-209 is here to put that right! Featuring built-in stereo speakers and a wireless subwoofer, this soundbar gives you powerful, immersive sound that’s missing from your TV. Thanks to Clear Voice mode, you also finally get to hear dialogue just as it should be – crisp and clear.

DTS Virtual:X – surround sound, without the extra speakers
The Yamaha YAS209 impresses with DTS Virtual:X technology. Virtual:X gives the impression of height from the sound, meaning that effects such a helicopter flying overhead or falling rain sound more realistic than ever – without the need for extra ceiling speakers.

Powerful bass from a wireless subwoofer
Letting you make the most of an action film or music concert, a separate subwoofer adds a level of realism that is more hi-fi than TV. With the YAS-209, you feel explosive soundtracks and hear a whole new level of powerful sound from music concerts. Best of all, this extra power comes with very little inconvenience. The wireless sub connection means there’s no wire between the soundbar and subwoofer. The subwoofer itself is compact and easy to position, requiring just a mains socket to plug in and go.

Alexa voice control
With Amazon’s Alexa built-in, all you have to do is ask. Useful voice-activated functions include changing the volume, selecting source, muting, and selecting streaming services such as Amazon Music. Of course, it doesn’t just have to be about the sound. You can also ask Alexa about the weather or set a timer.

Stream your music
Download the Yamaha Sound Bar Controller app (Apple iOS or Android), and you can stream your stored music and favourite music services, such as Spotify (premium account required) and Amazon Music. The app also lets you link up with NAS (Network Attached Storage) drives on your network and stream stored music. Simply connect to your network router by wi-fi or Ethernet cable and you’re good to go.

Bluetooth it
If you struggle with wi-fi reception or prefer an even easier set-up, you can also connect your music device via Bluetooth. With more turntables now fitted with a Bluetooth output, this is a highly convenient way of listening to your records. Or simply connect up your smartphone for instant music streaming

Easy HDMI connection
With flexible connectivity, the YAS-209 is compatible with most TVs. The HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and HDCP2.3 – meaning that they work with top quality streaming and UHD Blu-ray sources. The HDMI connections (1 in/1 out) are also 3D Ready and support Audio Return Channel (ARC) functionality for reduced cabling. If you’re unable to use HDMI, a digital optical input is also on hand.

Hear the difference that powerful sound makes to your movie nights, with the Yamaha YAS-209.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved sound! I am very happy with the sound bar and woofer. It has vastly improved our enjoyment of programmes and films. It was easy to set up and get going straight way at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crisp audio, compact package Needing to slim down from a full size AV receiver and HIFI bookshelf speakers I couldn't bear the TV speaker alone so a soundbar was one of the only options. After many hours researching the YAS-209 was the soundbar package which balanced the sound quality, size and price for me. The wireless subwoofer is a great addition to the bar which is quite bright sounding especially having come from hifi speakers. It did take a couple of hours listening to music and films for my ears to adjust to the new dynamic but I'm really enjoying it now. Some of the processing options such as bass extension and 3d surround effect go a bit overboard but depends what audio and effects are being played. Overall really happy with my purchase and taking out the RS 6 year guarantee gives me piece of mind if the main board or connection go, as can happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caravan sound theatre I purchased the Yamaha YAS209 after some research, it’s is now set up in our static holiday home and is a superb compliment to the 4K tv, all channels have superb sound, movies / sport if fantastic, great product and total value for money, would use R/S again for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bit of kit Upgraded to this from the Denon option and really impressed. The virtual surround sound is actually really good and the mix options are a step up from the 3 available with the Denon. Great sound and definitely a step up. Would highly recommend this unit and the staff at Watford as always are very helpful and great to deal with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, bit clunky to set up Bought for my husband for Christmas. Best price I found in comparison to other sites. It looks great now that it’s all set up but it’s quite awkward to set up and I’d read about others including this one that once all good to go we now can’t see what number volume we’re on. Not the end of the world just slightly annoying. The speaker is quite large so you may want to check you have space to accommodate it or a large room to place it. Overall we’re very happy and it looks very smart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, easy to use Bought for Christmas to improve on limited sound from an otherwise great TV. Easy to connect to the TV once we cannibalised a dvd player for its hdmi cable. Less easy to connect to Spotify as you need to download an app to connect the soundbar to your wifi, but that is just a one-off thing. Using the different programmed modes is simple and was the only thing that needed explaining to other users, everything else is automatic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value. Sounds great. For TV or music we usually have it in stereo mode with all the fancy stuff switched off as this gives the best sound. Though If we have a film on I sometimes put it into Movie mode and 3D sound to give it a more immersive sound. Sometimes get a little bit of fuzz on voices in mid/low region, but honestly thats just being picky, it generally sounds great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing well impressed I had the klipsch cinema 400 but had major problems it kept turning its self off. So i returned it to store and decided on this yamaha yas 209 instead. First impression was its smaller and the sub is half the size of the klipsch and could this match it. But how wrong was i the yamaha has sprung to life almost straight away even though its smaller the sound is amazing and even though the sub is smaller and in watts its really impressive it doesnt sound like its out of controll it sounds fantastic. The more i listen to the yamaha the more crisp and clear the sound is getting. Im glad i decided to use the hdmi arc insted of optical. I also like how i can control via the app i can also add my nas hard drives via the wifi connection. The app also checks for firmware updates so you just plug it in set it up and leave it todo its own thing.if ur wattching a war film press the bass ext and wham the bass kicks up a notch. The 3d surround button makes the yamaha really streach its self the sound is out of this world the bass kicks in nice and suttle yet i dont no how yamaha ave done it but it almost sounds dolby atmos as there is sound cumming at you from all angles even from above you. I have to say this is a fantastic buy and makes other companys and other sound bars quake. Once again well done yamaha

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fairly good for the price A decent soundbar and certainly an upgrade to the speakers on my Samsung TV. Not brilliant for music - sounds a bit thin and too much treble for me but for movies it performs well. Can't say I've found the 3D surround feature particularly noticeable but might need specific content to notice it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and easy to setup with Alexa on board After a lot of research I homed in on the Yamaha Yas 209 for best value for money. I could have spent £2000 on a system and it may be a little better with more features but ! I am impressed by the loudness, frequency response and clarity. The clear voice button really works. The cinema mode adds spacial tones. The only reason why I have given 4 stars is I just feel the mid frequencies are a little harsh but I guess this is common with most sound bars that do not offer larger mid range loudspeakers. I love having Alexa built in but on setting up be sure you select English UK and not American as Alexa tries to find a US radio 2, not our BBC. I'm very happy and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid purchase. Already owning a Yamaha YSP2200, which is still giving great service, we knew this would be a worthwhile buy. Although this item is considered to be just a 'sound bar' and working in a very different way to the YSP range of products, and coming from Yamaha we had no concerns over buying this unit. The product was just so easy to set up, once everything was connected to the mains and the TV, everything else was automatic. The sound quality is excellent, with music and film sound tracks, and I'm sure once the unit is 'broken in' it will sound even better, the speech emphasizer software works really well pulling the speech element of the movie track just in front of the 'bangs and the booms' making everything well balanced even on the loudest movie audio tracks. The other features, such as 'Alexa' and the DSP choices all work really well too. The guys at the Hull store have always given us great service, we have shopped there for over 20 years I think, and this purchase was no different, even though they did not have a unit in the store a warehouse based unit was with us the very next day, and their helpful attitude and cheerful approach is always very rewarding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent sound for the price I did a bit of research before buying this and am very satisfied. There is a good deep bass from the sub woofer. The midrange could be a little clearer but I found that using the voice boost button helps. There are quite a few sound settings and these are needed as the music setting is good for music (I use Apple TV for this as it’s better sound quality than Bluetooth streaming) but if you leave it on the music setting for tv, the sound has a distinct echo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound Used of about three weeks. Wiring up wasn't a problem as long at you plug the HDMI into the right socket. Couldn't work out why no sound or control from TV remote. That's what happens reading upside down. Once it's working check you TV sound settings . The App! Not much to say about this apart from Nightmare. Reviewers continually report major problems with connection to the bar along with poor functions. A lot motr could be improved but seems Yamah aren't interested in it. However event without the App the bar functions from the TV Remote and if needed the Bar Remote. Sound buttons do a good job when set the specific type of media you are watching. For most this would be TV. Music comes over with good sound and you have the option of controlling the sub separately. Would I buy it again? Oh Yeah! Richer Sounds gave good reasoned advice to but this instead of the YAS 207 which was on offer at the time. Haven't felt the need to use Alexa much and have Amazon music and Spotify both doing a good service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good sound and great value Really happy with the sound and it’s made a huge difference vs the standard LG BX TV sound. Sub woofer add a nice cinematic feel. It was a little temperamental to set up, and ensuring the sub woofer is plugged in before the soundbar helped with the wireless pairing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought YAS 209 a month ago. I was planning to buy YAS 207 but it was not in stock. Since i was waiting for a long time, I have decided to buy YAS 209, which was in stock that time and has some new features. Sound quality is amazing, good thing is you have full control on bass, so we can adjust it if someone is sleeping or at night time. Tried all the connectivity option and works perfectly. Even thought i use HDMI arc always, sometimes sound bar will be set to receive the input from HDMI on startup. I have to change it to tv mode manually to get the sound working. Tried on full volume with max bass and no distortion so far. Connecting to WiFi was so easy and works perfectly all the time. I prefer to use mobile application to control the soundbar rather than the remote. Happy to give 9/10 rating. One point i deducted only because sometimes i have to change the mode manually to get the sound output. It should remember last connectivity settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha YAS209 I used to have an AV receiver and a 5.1 surround system in my previous home. As there is lack of space where I am now, I decided to invest in my first soundbar. I bought the Yamaha YAS-209 about a month ago and so far I'm very happy with it. Although it can not compete with a full surround system, this piece of equipment does a very good job bringing movies to life and providing a significant improvement from the TV speakers. DTS Virtual:X works suprisingly well to liven things up. The Clear Voice feature works also well by enhancing dialogue clarity. It's worth mentioning it comes with a separate subwoofer, which connects wirelessly with the soundbar, although you need to power it. The subwoofer does a more than decent job with low frequencies in movies. I've connected all my sources (DVD player, streamer, game console) to myTV (LG C8) and connected the soundbar to the TV via HDMI ARC. The soundbar turns on automatically when I turn the TV on and works without problems. Volume is also controlled via the TV's remote as well as the soundbar's remote or the app. This soundbar also comes with Alexa built-in if you are into this sort of thing. If you aren't, you can deactivate it with a press of the button on the remote. It also has an additional HDMI input to connect a device straight to it. In terms of networking, it comes with a ethernet port for reliable connection, as well as Wi-Fi/bluetooth connectivity if you prefer either of these. You can stream music to it through spotify/tidal/amazon or through your phone/NAS/computer using the app. Overall there is nothing negative I can say about the YAS-209. As long as you are not expecting a full surround sound experience (no soundbar can compete to an av receiver and surround speakers) you can't go wrong for the price this baby goes for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality sound and fantastic features I received the Yamaha YAS209 sounder on Christmas Eve and had it installed within minutes of unpacking it. The sound quality is superb on the clear voice feature and rich and full when full used for general cinematic viewing. The remote provides excellent control of sound volume and the intensity of the subwoofer so you can have a very loud viewing experience without the sound being drowned out by an over driven subwoofer. Excellent product with many other features like Bluetooth, Alexa, etc and great value for money.
