Yamaha MusicCast BAR 40 Review | Trusted Reviews


The Yamaha MusicCast BAR 40 is a 2-channel soundbar with multiroom capabilities and support for DTS Virtual:X surround sound

Good with movies and music ; MusicCast multiroom support ; Attractive and well made ; Upgrade options ; Easy setup

No Dolby Atmos/DTS:X ; No separate subwoofer ; Only one HDMI input

A solid two-channel soundbar with multiroom capabilities and upgrade options, but it lacks real bass
