Audio and Video Format:
Yamaha YAS 209 soundbar supports DTS Digital sound, 4K passthrough, HDR10, and HLG playback. HDR10 and HLG playback means you get HDR10 passthrough in HDR10 content via Firestick. This simply translates to awesome clarity. You don’t get such features even in soundbars costlier than this.
Result of Audio Test-1: Clarity
In one word- it is awesome. After burn-in, its sound is absolutely clear. Its 3D mode produces a virtual surround effect where you experience sound coming from different directions. This virtual or digital surround effect is magical. The clear voice feature produces more mid response i.e vocals become sharper. Such kind of audio touches your heart. There is no shortage of bass. Yamaha is not made for people who love listening to ‘boom-boom’ bass i.e too much bass.
The bass extension feature can enhance the quality of bass but it can’t produce bass like budget soundbars that produce extra bass. A music composer puts a certain level of bass and if you get more than that from a soundbar, then it is artificial music that you listen to. If you want absolute clarity and original audio, then Yamaha is the right answer. However, it is not disappointing in the bass.
Result of Audio Test-2: Bass
In this audio test, there was clarity even in the bass. We recommend you not use clear voice and bass extensions simultaneously. Use only one of these features at a time. For instance, if you are using clear then avoid bass extension and vice-versa. The bass extension feature produces bass from the subwoofer and drivers. More bass is the enhanced bass and not the artificial bass. You will be able to enjoy movies and music both.
Result of Audio Test-3: After Attaching it to the TV
While making Yamaha YAS 209 review, we also connected it to the TV to check its performance. We played the content with the use of Firestick and we got HDR10 passthrough easily. Yamaha YAS 209’s performance after attaching it to the TV was awesome. The sound was clear.
What are imaging and depth?
In a video, if the bullets are shot from a place ahead of the actor, then sound should also come from that particular. But what you get is a common sound. Yamaha YAS 209 soundbar, on the other hand, produces the sound from where it is actually produced and this is what the cinematic experience is. This is called depth and imaging and this soundbar outperforms in this segment.
Remote Control and App Connectivity:
You get a full-functional remote control of good quality. There are no issues with the remote control. You get direct buttons for clear sound, 3D sound, and bass extension. All these controls are given in the app too.

A Short Comparison:
As compared to Yamaha YAS 209 soundbar, Denon 316 is a good soundbar but has less output (100W). It is clear and has depth, and everything else but we still prefer the Yamaha YAS 209 soundbar. The 200W output will fill your room with audio.
Polk Magnifi Mini is good for bass lovers as it produces more audio. But you should prefer clear audio over loud audio. That is why Yamaha is again a winner.
