Looking not to break bank on decent soundbar for my new LG 55 OLED.
Narrowed it down to Yamaha 203 on sale for $299 at Amazon, Best Buy vs Polk Audio Magnifi for $249.  Yamaha has 7.1 simulated sound but only 175 watts, Polk has 300 watts per website.  This is for living room approx 15 ft x 20 ft.  Thanks

Youll be disappointed in the Yamaha 203.  
Instead of the kooky Voice Adjust center channel crossover EQ of the Polk Magnifi, I would recommend getting an LG from 2 years ago.

Me too I was looking to the Yamaha 203. What's wrong with this sound bar ?

The problem with the YAS-203 is it has no separate tweeter. The full range 2.2" driver has terrible dispersion above 8Mhz or so.
It's much better than a TV speaker, but Id personally prefer the YAS-106 (or 105) over it.
