Yamaha entered the budget soundbar market this week by introducing a pair of affordable compact, one-piece models promising high-value performance, attractive low-profile aesthetics and a collection of versatile features.

The Yamaha models SR-C20A (C20A) and SR-B20A (B20A) each feature slim low-profile designs, simple setup and high-quality sound at bargain prices.

The Yamaha C20A is designed to fit tight spaces while still delivering big sound performance. The sound bar measures 23-inches long and 2.5-inches high to fit below most tabletop mounted TVs and gaming monitor screens. Yamaha said the unit is outfitted with robust options for audio and video connectivity.

The Yamaha B20A is tailored to fit today’s thin TVs that often incorporate diminished built-in speaker sizes. It features a new shape and slim profile, with sleek, deep black fabric and larger, dimmable LEDs for visibility of sound bar functions and adjustments.
