Ratings and Reviews
Yamaha ATS-2090 Sound Bar Volume
While the Yamaha ATS-2090 Sound Bar has superb sound, it seems like almost every day the volume gets stuck at a constant decibel level (i.e. I can’t turn the volume up or down). I basically I have to re-set the system by unplugging it and re-connecting, before I can adjust the volume. Not sure if it is an equipment malfunction or a software glitch. Either way, I haven’t been able to figure out how to stop the problem from recurring.
App will not connect to Wi-Fi
Poorly designed app with an even worse user interface.
I was able to connect my sound bar to our home Wi-Fi for the 18-20 months I have had my ATS-2090 sound bar. However, recently I noticed that my subwoofer was not working. I nailed the problem down to the sound bar not being connected to our home Wi-Fi anymore, nor was it recognized by the Yamaha app. I have reset the sound bar and attempted to add it again to the Yamaha app, but I am unable to as the app consistently tells me I am entering in the incorrect Wi-Fi password. I am not, I have copied the password verbatim and attempted to do this 5-7 times with no luck.
It’s unfortunate that an poorly designed app has rendered my sound bar nearly entirely useless.
Issues with Alexa
I don’t want Alexa and turned it off immediately after installing the bar.
However, after the last software update it turned on automatically without asking permission or setting changes. I switched the Always-on mode off again but still she will activate it you (my kids for example!) call her. I had to log out to any Amazon/Alexa account linked to the Yamaha software so that she is not working (apparently with no account cannot work) but still if you call Alexa you see the light turns on (yellow instead of blu) meaning the always on mode is still on!
