Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 Review | Trusted Reviews


The Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 is a 2.1-channel soundbar and subwoofer combo with multiroom support and DTS Virtual:X surround sound.

Great sound with movies and music ; Well-integrated subwoofer ; MusicCast multiroom audio ; Impressive build quality ; Easy set-up

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

A capable 2.1-channel soundbar, but a lack of immersive audio support puts it at a disadvantage to the competition

Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 Review


Yamaha is back at it again with a jack-of-all-trades soundbar package that aims to give the competition a serious run for their money.

Super easy setup ; Wireless Sub is a wonderful room friendly addition. ; Subwoofer volume on the remote!!! ; The most painless Bluetooth connection I’ve ever used. ; The ability to connect other wireless speakers. ; This is asking a lot but, a bigger...

This is asking a lot but, a bigger main bar. ; Indicator lights up front or some sort of menu system.

In this category, you have a fair amount of options. The $499.99 YAMAHA’S MUSICCAST BAR 400 might have the most extensive feature set of them all. For the prospective consumer, if having every option considered, easy to connect to, then this is the...

TEST: Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 og MusicCast 20 - TV-lyd som kan bygges ut | Lyd & Bilde


Når det gjelder trådløse multiromshøyttalere er man unnskyldt om man automatisk tenker på Sonos. Da går man fort glipp av andre flotte systemer, og ett av de som har overbevist oss med sin gode brukervennlighet, fleksibilitet, og – ikke minst – støtte...

Superfleksibel multiromsfunksjon, god brukervennlighet og god lyd. Med trådløse bakhøyttalere blir det tett opp mot ekte hjemmekino.

Lydplanken alene, uten bakhøyttalere, blir ganske anonym og forglemmelig.

Yamaha MusicCast BAR 40 SW Soundbar und Subwoofer


Die Yamaha MusicCast BAR 40 und der Yamaha MusicCast SUB 100 sollen eine gute Kombination sein. Soundbar und Subwoofer sollen für Kino-Klang im Wohnzimmer sorgen.

Yamahas MusicCast BAR 40 kostet 499 Euro inklusive Mehrwertsteuer, der Yamaha MusicCast SUB 100 ist ebenfalls für 499 Euro inklusive Mehrwertsteuer erhältlich. Die unverbindliche Preisempfehlung für beide Geräte als Bundle MusicCast BAR 40 SW beträgt...

Yamaha MusicCast BAR 40 YMS-4080


Die beste Soundbar mit Surround-Qualitäten und feinen musikalischen Eigenschaften ist die HEOS Bar von Denon. Die beste Soundbar mit Dolby Atmos ist die Philips Fidelio B8. Das Front-Surround-System von Philips schafft eine beeindruckende...

Feine KlanganpassungenHervorragende Surround-FähigkeitenSehr potenter Sub

Etwas zickig bei der Erstinstallation per AppIn der Kombi mit Sub 100 recht teuer

Wir haben die MusicCast Bar 40 mit dem Sub 100 gepaart: eine hervorragende Kombi, die mit ihren Klang und Surround-Presets überzeugt.
