For movies, games and any other audiovisual medium, sound is what brings the whole theatrical experience together, so you shouldn’t neglect it in your setup. But while surround sound can provide a more immersive experience, it requires space, equipment, and potentially complicated setup.
The Yamaha ATS-2090 offers an easier way to bring theatrical sound into your home, and you don’t have to be a tech whiz or audiophile to set it up properly. This kit includes a built-in sound bar, subwoofer and Alexa, a 14 percent discount).
The ATS-2090 packs 200 watts of power into a thin strip that takes little time to install. All you need is an HDMI or optical cable and you can start using this new audio setup. The kit also comes with a wireless subwoofer, so no complicated wiring is needed to set it up. The entire setup can be managed with a companion app, which you can use to switch between sound modes, music, and more.
Between the soundbar and the subwoofer, you can enjoy deep bass and clear sound without the bulk of a full 5.1 setup. Yamaha achieves this with its DTS Virtual 3D technology, which simulates the surround sound experience and envelops you in spacious sound.
The ATS-2090 supports Amazon Alexa, so you can use your voice to do things like play music, listen to the news, set timers, and ask questions. You can even use Spotify Connect, WiFi, or Bluetooth to listen to podcasts and audiobooks. The soundbar is 36 inches long and is thin enough to fit most TV stands without getting in the way of your screen. From this one position you will get clear sound which can be complemented by the included subwoofer which you can place anywhere in your room. The intuitive features and easy setup of the Yamaha ATS-2090 make it an Amazon’s Choice product with an average rating of 4.3 stars.
