This mini soundbar could be perfect for students – and it's pretty cheap


Soundbars are a great way of bringing immersive audio to your home cinema setup and boosting your TV’s puny inbuilt speakers – but if your living room is on the smaller side, or you want to squeeze a bar into your bedroom, office, or student dorm room, you may find that many of the best soundbars are far too big.


The soundbar also makes use of Yamaha’s Clear Voice technology, which should help to decipher mumbling actors in your favorite shows.


There are plenty of connectivity options available, including HDMI ARC, two optical ports, and an “analog stereo mini input for gaming consoles and other portable devices”.


If you’re looking for something a little bigger (and higher spec), Yamaha has also announced the SR-B20A, which is packing DTS: Virtual X, which recreates the sound of a 7.1.4 setup, without the need for lots of additional speakers.


While the B20A will set you back a little more than its smaller sibling at £249 (about $330 / AU$450), it’s still pretty cheap for the specs – ideal for anyone who wants the immersion of surround sound without the cost.


Both soundbars will be available in “early Fall” according to Yamaha – for our readers in the Southern Hemisphere, that means they’ll likely be released in September.
