Yamaha has taken a significant step in the audio market by announcing two new Dolby Atmos soundbars: the SR-B40A with a wireless subwoofer and the SR-B30A featuring built-in subwoofers.

Building upon the success of their compact SR-C30A and SR-C20A soundbars, Yamaha's latest offerings represent a significant step up in terms of both size and performance. The SR-B40A, which comes with a separate wireless subwoofer, is priced at $399.95, while the SR-B30A, boasting a built-in subwoofer, carries a price tag of $279.95. Both models will be available from July 20th.

The SR-B40A soundbar boasts an impressive array of audio components, featuring four 460mm full-range cones and two 250mm tweeters that deliver frequencies spanning from 210Hz to 22Hz. The dedicated wireless subwoofer complements the soundbar's performance with its 1600mm cone, extending the bass frequency and adding depth to the audio. 

On the other hand, the SR-B30A shares the same full-range cones and tweeters with its counterpart, but it also incorporates a built-in 750mm subwoofer capable of reaching as low as 54Hz.

Yamaha's commitment to delivering a truly immersive sound experience is evident in its True Sound principle, designed to maximize the three-dimensional effects of Dolby Atmos. This technology ensures that users are enveloped in a captivating auditory environment, bringing their favorite movies and music to life. While Yamaha's claims of 'brilliant sound reproduction' sound promising, many audio enthusiasts are eager to put these soundbars to the test in their own setups.

A couple of notable features included in both the SR-B40A and SR-B30A soundbars are the Clear Voice function, which enhances speech clarity across various languages, and the Bass Extension feature, granting users greater control over low-end bass frequencies. Additionally, both models come equipped with four sound modes: movie, stereo, standard, and game. These modes are reportedly designed to match the audio output to the content being enjoyed, whether it's a thrilling action movie, a soulful melody, or an intense gaming session.

Connectivity options are abundant in both soundbars, with optical and HDMI compatibility being the standout features. Leveraging HDMI-CEC and eARC connections, users can conveniently operate basic functions directly from their TV remote, eliminating the need for multiple controllers. 

For those who prefer managing their audio experience from their mobile devices, Yamaha has also developed the user-friendly Sound Bar Remote app, allowing seamless control of volume levels and sound modes from a smartphone or tablet.

As these new soundbars hit the market, anticipation is high among consumers and audio enthusiasts who seek an unparalleled home theater experience. With Yamaha's reputation for delivering high-quality audio products, many are eager to see if the SR-B40A and SR-B30A soundbars can live up to the hype and provide a cinematic sound experience in the comfort of their living rooms.
