Question YAS-207 vs Bose Solo 5?

I'm wondering if the Yamaha YAS-207 would be a noticeable upgrade over the Bose Solo 5?

I bought the latter when I moved at the start of the year. I paid about $200 but it doesn't sound a ton different than soundbars I've had for half that cost. It's pretty barebones as a unit. I should have done more homework.

The YAS-207 is only about $50 more but seems to offer much more bang for the buck including DTS Virtual:X and a standalone wireless subwoofer.

Does anyone have experience with these soundbars?

Never buy Bose. Overpriced dollar store garbage.

I bought a friend a Yamaha YAS-107 when they were looking for a soundbar and I thought it sounded quite good. I would imagine the 207 sounds a bit more full, with two more woofers added. I would also look at the Denon S216 or the Klipsch BAR 40 in that price range as well. Either one will blow away the Bose.
