I live in a 2 bedroom apartment. I'm looking for the best soundbar for about $200.00. I'm very interested in the Yamaha YAS-101. Is that the best one for the price range?

If you can, take home the Panasnic SC-HTB20 and listen to it. I have only heard the 101 a few times and it has left me unimpressed. Acquired the Panasonic about three weeks ago from BB (about 180) and I believe this will be a keeper.

Very good width and depth. Subwoofer adjusted way too high from the factory and needed to have the level brought under control. Not crazy about Panasonic 3D sound with Crystal Dialog but other may find it good.

Also consider the Vizio 215 for $199.

I checked out the Visio and the Panasonic. Both sound great but I like the quality and look of the Yamaha. Costco has it for $179.99 right now. Should I get it?

I have the Vizio and it is great. Fills up a large, open vaulted ceiling living space with sound quite well considering how little it cost.
