Ditch that remote and stick to your voice. Yamaha announced two new soundbars that now locks Amazon’s Alexa within. The YAS 109 and YAS 209 are new offerings that help turn your bland television into a pleasurable movie room. So even if Dion whispered something, or that blast that blew Kabir Anand meters away, the audio performance will ensure that you never skip back to hear that dialog again. These soundbars pack in Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround decoding, as well as DTS Virtual:X  for a good virtual 3D surround sound performance. And if you plan small house parties, this Diwali could be a great time for shaking a leg with friends and family. Use the Bluetooth option to hook up your phone or simply leave it to Alexa and Spotify Connect to DJ for you. Priced at ₹23,990 and ₹35,490, the 109 and 209 are already on sale now.
