I had a chance to test and compare two models: Polk Audio Command Bar vs Yamaha YAS-107 and this review should help people who are looking for a good soundbar. The Polk Audio Command Bar was rated 6.6, while the Yamaha YAS-107 has a rating 6.8. The soundbars are equipped with a different number of buttons, volume down, volume up, microphone, action for the Command Bar and input, mute, volume down, volume up, power for the YAS-107.
Each of the models under consideration has active amplification type. A noticeable difference is the number of channels that Command Bar has 2.1 and YAS-107 has 2.0. These rivals can be compared in terms of power, 160 (overall) versus 120 according to devices. A built-in subwoofer is available only in the Yamaha YAS-107. An external subwoofer connects to the Command Bar via wireless, but YAS-107 has wired connection type. Rate 6 out of 10 received the Polk Audio Command Bar for audio features and specs, but the Yamaha YAS-107 received 7 out of 10. Each of the competitors can play content from Spotify.
Both models do not have a wireless Wi-Fi interface. Soundbars from this comparison have Bluetooth support. There are 1/1 HDMI inputs/outputs in the Polk Audio Command Bar versus 1/0 HDMIs in the Yamaha YAS-107. As in the Command Bar, so in the YAS-107 there is the HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC). We rated the connectivity of the Command Bar at 7 out of 10, while the YAS-107 was rated 6/10. The manufacturer of the YAS-107 provides a device control application. The Polk Audio Command Bar equipped with a microphone. The Polk Audio Command Bar may become part of a multiroom system.
Dolby Atmos audio decoder support is not implemented in either the Command Bar or YAS-107. Devices from this comparison cannot process surround sound due to lack of DTS:X. The Command Bar was rated 5/10, while the YAS-107 received a mark of 6/10 for multichannel surround.
