Yamaha SR-C20A is the smallest soundbar I've seen from Yamaha at just 23 inches wide. The C20 offers a pair of 1.8-inch cone drivers, a built-in 3-inch subwoofer: and two passive radiators. While it lacks the Roku's streaming capability, the Yamaha does offer more connection options.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The C20A measures just over 23 inches wide and roughly 2.5 inches tall. The goal here, Yamaha told me, was to pack the biggest sound possible into the smallest possible bar. It does have an included remote, plus an optical cable for tethering the bar to your display.

  • ClearVoice and bass extension
  • Works with multiple devices at once
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The SR-C20A promises volumes and depth belying its stature thanks to its pair of 46mm full-range drivers and integrated 75mm subwoofer with dual passive radiators. The main area in which it lacks a little something is in terms of dynamic expression. Yamaha is clever enough to know why people buy products such as these and has succeeded in delivering a clear and focused presentation that will improve on that of any regular flat-screen TV.

Pros[**]
  • Rich, clear sound
  • Easy-to-use remote
  • Easy to use
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
