With so many great TV shows to binge, movies to watch and music to stream, there’s no better time than now to curl up on the couch for a little entertainment. Your experience will be that much better with a great soundbar, however, and the Yamaha YAS-109 is a fabulous option that’s currently up for grabs at a pretty great price.

Regularly priced at $239.95, this soundbar is currently marked down by $60 to $179.95 at Amazon. It’s also a powerhouse in the audio department: In testing, it offered up nearly identical features to its pricier sister soundbar, the YAS-209 ($349.95), which we dubbed the best one on the market for its clear, punchy sound. The main difference? This one has a built-in subwoofer, while the 209 has separate, wireless one. As such, you’ll get enhanced bass with the YAS-209, and more options in terms of where to place the soundbar and sub.
That’s not to say the YAS-109 is a slouch in the bass department, however: Its will still handle the low-end and thumping sounds you’ll want when you’re watching an intense drama or horror flick or are deeply immersed in a high-action video game with ease.
It also shares many other features we loved in our top-rated pick. Like the YAS-209, the YAS-109 boasts DTS: Virtual X (a processing technique that’s used to create a 3D sound inside the bar), built-in Alexa voice control, Bluetooth, WiFi, and an HDMI ARC input—just to name a few.
If space is at a minimum in your living room, den, or bedroom, or you live in a small apartment, you’ll also be pleased to know that the more affordableYAS-109 just might be a better option for you, as it’s slightly smaller and more lightweight (10 pounds vs 20) than the 209.
Either way you go, you’ll be getting “warm, well-tuned audio” you can count on. There’s no telling how long this deal will last however, so grab it while you still can!
