How does HW-E450 compare to the YAS-101 ?booblehead wrote: ↑Dec 23rd, 2012 9:53 pmI bought this last year for $200 + HST in GTA.
$250 Boxing day price is extremely cold, given that they regularly have this for $250 from time to time on both FS & BB & AV2001.
The Source has the Samsung HW-E450 for $200 boxing week. That's not bad of a pay at all.

thank you very much for the input. I've been reading reviews on the Samsung and it's not bad. Pretty much on par with the Yamaha.booblehead wrote: ↑Dec 24th, 2012 1:15 amI will try to buy a Samsung HW-E450 this year from the Source for my other tv.
I am not knowledgable in this kind of thing. However, I have now owned the Yamaha for exactly 1 year and I have to say it's money well spent on a $200 soundbar. Obvviously, the next model up on the Yamaha is like $800+ which I am not ready to spend that kind of $. I just want a (starter) good soundbar which is 1 notch better than the tv's crappy speakers.
btw, I bought mine Yamaha from Update TV (Elgin Mills/Leslie where HD, Costco, TD bank, etc are located). If you are interested, speak to Trevor or his wife, Stacey for a good deal. Their prices are generally very competitive and you can always negoitate a bit more than the posted price.

according to some reviews on amazon, Samsung HW-E550 is not completely wireless as the inputs are on the sub, so you're technically limited to length of your cables.booblehead wrote: ↑Dec 24th, 2012 1:30 amI also wonder what would the Samsung HW-E550 go for ? If it's about $100 more than the HW-E450, I may go for this instead. I was snooping around at various tv stores (all Chinese shops) and I see they have them in stock but the price was not listed as I was waiting to ask but the staff was too busy with other paying customers, so I guess I will have to make my trips to those stores once again.
Update TV (Trevor) said the Yamaha sound is bit more clear and bass is marginally better the both Sony & Samsung. But for $200, I guess I cannot ask for the 'moon' in performance.
btw, I did hear the upper model of Yamaha, I have to say .... if you have the $, definintely go for this. One word ... 'WOW'

if you had to choose 450 vs 101, which one would it be?bastone wrote: ↑Dec 24th, 2012 2:24 amWas in Detroit the last couple of days, BB has the Samsung HW-E550 for $299 which sounded amazing (very good bass and clear vocals)...but the sub is not wireless (as they say) the satellite speakers are (the centre speaker can be split in 2 for left/right or combined for centre channel). Costco in US had the Yamaha YAS101 ( around $179?) sounded ok but not much bass, they also had the samsung 450 ($229) which was not bad. Another system at Costco had was a Sony BDVN-790W for $379 which sounded good for a mini surround system. These are just my thoughts and what one person thinks sounds great another may not.
