Sounds great. Great for the price. Two annoying bugs
I've had this for over 2 years now, it got me through the pandemic.

There's a few software glitches worth mentioning.
1) I use the spotify integration, so I switch the spotify app on my phone over to the soundbar, but the volume control doesn't work, and the workaround is you have to select the soundbar, deselect it, then select it again. Then you can adjust the volume from the spotify app.

2) If you use the ARC receiver for the TV, there's a glitch where periodically the tv tries to switch back to the ARC receive sound when I just want to use the TV speakers. But if the soundbar isn't on the TV mode, it just appears like suddenly the sound goes mute. And you can't figure out why the sound just randomly cuts out. So I have to leave the ARC disconnected when I don't want to use it. And when I do want to use it, sometimes the TV audio randomly cuts in.

Bottom Line:
The sound is excellent, but those two glitches have never been fixed, and it makes it so I constantly have to fidget it, making it hard to use. Spend a bit more money and get a Sonos or something.

On my 3rd YAS-209 since 2020
This is the third YAS-209 I've purchased to go with an LG OLED55C9 TV in January 2020. The first one exhibited intermittent audio dropouts not long after I installed it, using the HDMI ARC channel connection from the LG TV. The replacement for that unit worked fine for about 2 years and 3 months, then started cutting out altogether. (The Toslink optical connection still worked.)

Testing with an HDMI analyzer showed the LG's HDMI ARC port was functioning correctly, so I took a chance and bought a 3rd YAS-209. That worked correctly right out of the box.

Note that the YAS-209 will not power up automatically through a Toslink connection; only through an HDMI ARC connection. Otherwise, you'll need two remote controls to operate everything.

I corresponded with Yamaha's U.S. corporate headquarters, describing the issue in detail and the steps I used to diagnose the problem, but got little in the way of a response other than, "Turn everything off, wait several minutes, and turn everything back on.' Not helpful at all. It appears to be a problem in the DAS-209 reading the TV's Data Display Channel (DDC) information, which would indicate the presence of an audio return signal on an HDMI port.

It sounds great when working, and I do like the wireless (Bluetooth) sub-woofer feature. The virtual (spatial) surround sound is also impressive for a soundbar.

Sounds nice
Set up was a little tricky, but overall not bad. The color and design is nice. The sound quality is great, the 3d surround sound feature was awesome! The subwoofer was very powerful and perfect for our basement use.

Best Sound Bar I've Ever Used!
Yamaha continues to be the best in the industry! I've owned a number of sounds bars over the years and this is the best sound bar i've used. I currently have it setup to a 75" LG 4K TV. The features are endless with the YAS-209 Sound Bar. It's great for movies, video games, and music. The build in Alexa, easy setup (HDMI plugin and automatic subwoofer connection), 3D surround sound, Spotify connection, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth make this product amazing! I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone. One of the best on the market!

An All In One Power House
If you're looking for an all in one system packed with features, settings and Alexa, then this is the perfect fit for you. Not only is it a perfect size to fit any stand or shelf, this system sounds AMAZING! Great audio, and just the right amount of bass.

WOW!
I have never had a soundbar before so when we attached the YAS-209 Soundbar to the TV, I was blown away! It immediately felt like I was at the movies, what an amazing difference it made! It was very simple to set up, took maybe 10 minutes max. I don't know much about these types of products, but I am definitely impressed. I would recommend this product.

Jam more often!
When I receive my YAS– 209 sound bar with wireless subwoofer and Alexa built-in I couldn't wait to tear the box open and set it up. The sound bar was the perfect addition to my master bedroom. I have a 55" TV in there but I've been having to settle with the original audio which is less than great. The sound bar was very easy to set up following the instructions provided from und boxing to TV within an hour and I was able to sync it to my Alexa account which is an added convenience.

My husband and I are parents to a toddler who need to go to bed early and gets distracted with the TV lights so our weekend date nights at home have migrated from The living room to the master bedroom. The sound bar is sleek and thin which makes it visually appealing and a seamless addition to our TV set up. The amp box doesn't take up too much room. I placed my line between my dresser and my full length mirror. The sound is noticiable amplified after adding the sound bar and it has made our morning jam sessions and movie nights a more enjoyable experience. And the convenience of having Alexa is something I never knew I needed. It functions as my alarm, my reminders and I am able to ask questions to Alexa on the fly. 10 out of 10, would recommend.

Is it having a power input of 220V?
Suraj on Dec 2, 2021
  Thanks for your inquiry. Products sold in the USA are 110V AC only.
I have Yamaha receiver and Boss surround sound system and like to add anther Front speaker? Can you help me
A shopper on Nov 27, 2020
  Sure. We're always happy to help. Please call us at 866.961.7781. Our product specialists are here to assist with questions on compatibility and availability. Thanks.
Can the sub be wired. And not so much wireless?
MICHAEL L on Nov 18, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The included wireless subwoofer has no wired connection option.
Can standalone surround speakers be added on to the set up? Are there compatible pairing Yamaha speakers?
Anthony W on Jun 21, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The YAS-209 has no provisions to connect dedicated surround speakers. We do offer several other brands, including Yamaha, that include surround speakers or connections for adding in the future.
World Wide Stereo is 40 years old and a proud authorized Yamaha dealer.
Can this product be mounted to a wall?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2020
  Thanks for your question. Yes, it can be wall mounted. A mounting template is included with the unit to mark the mounting holes.
The mounting hardware is not included because the hardware you use is VERY dependent upon the wall material. A hardware store should be able to recommend fasteners for your wall type: drywall, through drywall into studs, plaster on lath, masonry, etc.
Can 'Alexa built-in' be turned off?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2020
  Thanks for your question. Alexa built in cannot be turned off, however, in the settings / set up procedures the mic. volume for Alexa may be turned all the way down, rendering it non-functioning.
Does it have voice leveling so the commercials are not so loud?
Allen K on Feb 1, 2020
  Thank you for your question. Yamaha soundbars all incorporate a Clear Voice feature that improves dialog clarity. Unfortunately a voice leveling feature that turns down the volume on commercials is not a commonly found feature on soundbars
Do we have to buy Alexa seperate to hear Alexa thats intergrated into Yamaha YAS-209?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2019
  Thanks for your question. Alexa is fully integrated into the YAS-209. Alexa listens via the sound bar and responds from it.
