I am still pretty much into HEOS Bar. That seems to be the closest equivalent to a AVR/speakers Combi with its number of inputs and features.

Alas!!...still no news on its availability here

Bros
Does anyone know a good place to get the Yamaha YAS 207?
What's the lowest price for it?

Thanks

I saw four soundbars on sale, ranging from 399 to 1.6k..
Some with Hdmi 2.0
Not too impressed so it's likely that I will try the Yam YAS 207 instead.
Very crowded...

hi Pete, did you manage to audition the YAS 207? where did you do it and how much is it going for? i'm in the market for a soundbar as well. i'm also looking at the samsung models. i don't need anything fancy. just a soundbar with an accompanying sub woofer. my main uses are with singtel mio TV for soccer and regular TV programs plus stuff that I would be streaming over the google chromecast. my current TV is a samsung, which i got from Viewqwest during a promo more than 2 years ago. i think it's 48" wide, with 2 HDMI ports and an optical port.

i'm also looking at the Sonos playbase but it's not future proof...

I didn't, but nevertheless I will be getting one end of the month for my in laws.
If you are able to wait we could go down to Audio House together one of the days after 20th and get a set.
I hear it's under 650 there.

I just contacted a sales rep from Audio House, courtesy of bro invoice..
I don't mind waiting til December for the deal, so if you want, we can go down - Makan first heh then do the deal..
I am sure there's more good food in the Bendemeer area that I haven't tried.
Otherwise we can eat the wanton at Lavender first then go there :)
We can go and squeeze the man a bit more...
Only HN and AH carry Yamaha soundbars..
