If your current home cinema setup lacks an audio roar, Yamaha reckons its latest soundbar offering should help amplify your viewing with 7.1 surround sound. Using Intellibeam technology to bounce sound beams around the room, the subwoofer and bar setup uses AirWired2 technology for delay free sound and the ability to wirelessly send tunes from your Mac, PC or iOS device to put it into party action. There’s also a FM tuner also on board and it can be wall mounted if space is currently at a premium.
