I paid via Paypal so I will just make a claim if all is not right.

I'm pretty sure the refurbished 1070 I bought from Newegg was refurbished by Yamaha themself.

I had a pretty poor experience with my Polk magnifi one sound bar. The subwoofer makes a popping crackling noise which Polk caims is due to interference with my router (basically a design flaw and no solution offered because I can't move my router or sound bar). The AC adapter stopped working one day so I had to buy a third-party one from Amazon. none of these things were covered by the warranty because it was literally days after the one year expired.

Going forward I think I would buy a soundbar without a subwoofer. I looked on the Yamaha y108 and I wish I had chosen the Yamaha given the experience I had. I'm currently in the market to replace my Polk soundbar with something that has built in woofers for a bit of bass. I'm debating either this or the Bose Solo 5. Anybody have feedback that they could share to help guide my purchase?

If you paid via credit card that extends your warranty (assuming you have that as coverage). Paid for itself when my vizio soundbar died a few months outside of warranty. Worked great while it was under warranty.

Check the T&C on your visa to see if your card offers the extended warranty benefit. If it does then call the number in your T&C booklet and start the claim process. It's annoying and a bunch of paperwork to do, but in the end they'll pay for repairs to get it fixed, or if it cant be fixed they'll refund you the purchase price.

Has no Hdmi or ARC though
I own this soundbar and the sound is pretty darn good. Plenty of bass for my taste and the surround sound works great. In fact, my friend bought a $300 Samsung soundbar with wireless sub and he prefers the sound from my Vizio. My only complaint about it is that the sound level increments are too drastic.

Earlier in this thread I recommended Edifier speakers which is on sale for half the price , those people who bought need to realize it’s a dead system that’s been cleared out as refurbished, the bass is crackling and tweeters are bad in Yamaha... wereas the Edifiers will give you premium experience

I bought one and received it yesterday. It’s really easy to setup and the arc works well. The sound quality doesn’t compare to my receiver and proper 5.1 setup but for the price and the portability it’s okay. I use it as a sound at in my living room to give my tv a little bit more oomph and it’s fine for less than 150

I found the review on the site to be hilarious ... :

"Cons: No sound thru speakers, sub only
Bass sounds very deformed and grunts"

Lol

My refurb looked brand new. The sound quality isn't fantastic but it's well worth the $150 taxes in if you need something in that price range.

Weird - I have the 1070 and it words fine with Shield and Netflix.

Did something change with the 1080?
