Yamaha YAS-207
vs
Samsung HW-T550

I had a chance to test and compare two models: Yamaha YAS-207 vs Samsung HW-T550 and this review should help people who are looking for a good soundbar. The Yamaha YAS-207 was rated 5,4, while the Samsung HW-T550 has a rating 4.5. The soundbars are equipped with a different number of buttons, input, mute, volume down, volume up, power for the YAS-207 and volume down, volume up, power, source for the HW-T550.

These rivals can be compared in terms of power, 200 versus 320 (overall) according to devices. The built-in subwoofer is not implemented in any of these models. An external subwoofer can be connected to any of the units in this comparison. Rate 7 out of 10 received the Yamaha YAS-207 for audio features and specs, but the Samsung HW-T550 received 6 out of 10.
