" ...  I have not tried the HDMI "pass-thru" connection for audio input to transport the TV sound to the Yamha. ... I use the digital (optical) cable supplied by Yamaha instead.  ...  "

" ...  The feature set for the price, especially the inclusion of HDMI with ARC, and CEC. ... Hooking up to my TV was easy - I plugged my cable box into the HDMI input, and ran a second HDMI cable from the output to the ARC HDMI port on my TV.  ...  "

" ...  Great sound, alot of nice features to mess with and tweak, not sure why it got discontinued, but really nice beefy bass and the 3D Surround sound is a nice feature.  ...  "

" ...  But even before that , the bass was adequate for most tv  ...  "
comment
" ...  Integrated subwoofer provides a subtle feel of bass, but it is not compared to a stand alone subwoofer.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I bought this one also for the bass extension. ... Bose did not offer a affordable sound bar with added bass and I love extra bass.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Plays fine, good bass although I'm only using it in my home office and not cranking it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound is great with beefy bass, you might want to play around with the simulated surround sound which works pretty well and actually improves the sound mixing (the default sounds a tad muffled in my opinion). ... You can boost the bass separately if you really want wall-shaking sound but sounds just as well without it (this is not like other speakers/soundbars that think big bass = quality.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I was determined to find something with Bluetooth, ARC (so I could control it with my TV remote), good, balanced sound, and with a max height of 3" and width of 39" (to fit my TV cabinet), all on a budget of around $100. ... The remote looks simple and dated but is perfectly functional.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Only thing I would improve on this and my other Yamaha sound bar is the 1980s-looking flat rectangular remote, although I will say that it works better than the remote on my Klipsch sound bar.  ...  "

comment
" ...  This allows the TV to turn the unit on and off with the TV, and volume control is handled by the TV itself, so the Yamaha remote is unnecessary most of the time. ... I've also installed the Yamaha HT Controller app, allowing some sound control functions right from my phone. ... The speaker has touch controls and LED indicators right on top, too, for another way to control it.  ...  "
