In this Yamaha YAS 109 vs 209, we are looking at if the 209 is a significant upgrade over the 109! The Yamaha YAS-109 is a fantastic soundbar and one that is easy for me to recommend. It more than held its own when I looked at the Yamaha YAS-109 vs Sonos Beam battle a short while ago. I also looked at the Yamaha YAS-209 Vs Sonos Playbar where I was very complimentary about the…

In the universe of soundbars, Samsung plays a major part in delivering a range of great products. In this article, we’ll compare the Samsung Q90R vs Samsung Q950T to give you a sense of how the upper range of these products stacks up against each other. Samsung has two main categories in the soundbar products, one that pairs with almost any TV and another, the Q Series, that has been specifically designed to pair with…

Today we are having a look at what is the best soundbar for dialogue. We have looked at many soundbars on the site lately such as the epic Yamaha YAS-209 Vs Sonos Playbar battle we did recently. I actually have a bit of a personal reason for writing this guide today. My grandparents were always complaining that their TV speakers were terrible. Truth be told, modern TV speakers are all pretty much far from great.…

Is A Dolby Atmos soundbar worth it? That is the million-dollar question that we are looking at today. It is kind of crazy to think that I am old enough to remember a time when Dolby Stereo was the big thing. Well, now Dolby Atmos is the thing that people are talking about and it is something that more and more soundbars are looking to incorporate and we are having a look at what this…

Take a close look at the Samsung Q800T vs the Samsung Q90R and get ready to reassess what you’ve always been told about soundbars. In the world of audio, soundbars got a bit of an ugly start, with many immediately assuming they couldn’t possibly be any good when compared to traditional surround sound stereo setups that included separate amplifiers, and individual speakers that physically separated the audio, spreading it throughout the listening space. In the…

Today we have a great match up for you with the Yamaha YAS-209 vs Sony HTX8500. Recently we looked at the Yamaha YAS-209 Vs Sonos Playbar Which Is Better? which was a lot of fun. Today, Yamaha is stepping into the steel cage with Sony and as a huge Sony fanboy, I am very interested to see how these two match up against each other. These are both fairly priced soundbars in my opinion and…

Since the advent of soundbars, Samsung has been one of the leaders in the industry, offering a selection of soundbar solutions for every budget. This comparison of the Samsung Q800T and Samsung Q900T soundbars are a great example of the way they’ve built their equipment to meet these price points while maintaining quality and performance. They also tend to bring new TVs to the market at the same time and that share almost the same…

Today we are having some real fun as we try to find the best Dolby Atmos soundbar. Not too long ago we had a look for the 5 Best Soundbars with Subwoofer below $200 which was a lot of fun, but today the soundbars we are looking at must offer Dolby Atmos support! I will admit right off the bat that these are not some of the more affordable soundbars out there right now, but…

This comparison of the JBL Bar 9.1 vs the Sonos Arc will help pull you up from the depths of disappointment that comes with buying a great 4k TV only to be totally let down by the quality of the viewing experience that TV delivers. The picture quality is amazing but the sound is completely unimpressive. It’s flat, there’s no base to speak of, and the entire sound profile doesn’t sound much better than what…

Today we are having a pretty interesting matchup as we look at the Sonos Beam vs Yamaha ATS-2090. The Sonos Beam is a very popular soundbar and I have looked at it before in articles such as the article called, Bose Solo Series II vs Sonos Beam Which is Better? which was added to the site recently. The Yamaha ATS-2090 is pretty interesting and a great offering from Yamaha even if it does tend to…
