I was looking for a better sound system for TV watching and this looks like a decent price for a Yamaha soundbar which has virtual surround (thanks to DTS Virtual:X). No AirPlay or MusicCast but it still has Bluetooth.

What’s the wattage and does that matter as I bought a £55 one from Asda with a sub woofer and it’s way too bassy?

The specs say "120 W total power: 30 W x 2 + 60 W built-in subwoofer" (probably not RMS).
I've had Yamahas in the past (and have been impressed); I'd guess that this wouldn't be too bassy unless you added a subwoofer yourself. There's a 'bass extension' option you can turn on and off with the remote which might give you more control.
The remote control has separate volume controls for 'Volume' and 'Subwoofer' - I'm not sure if the 'Subwoofer' control is purely for an external subwoofer (if you connect one) or for the two built-in subwoofers.

There are some decent 'cheap' ones out there - but Yamaha have been making audiophile-grade Hi-Fi for years, and I think that shows in their soundbars (up to a point, obviously; I don't want to imply this soundbar will sound as good as a Hi-Fi costing tens of thousands of pounds ).

But this is a great price point if it’s good sound! I bought a 120 watt from Argos and it’s terrible! I keep seeing bars for over £600 on here and this is why I get so confused! I just want a decent bar with good clarity and bass that doesn’t cost the earth 🌍
I have it and really recommend it. Impressive sound!
Good spot.

Can't even find the refurbished section on there.

According to a review I just read the SRP was £169.99 new in December 2017 so they've ramped the price up on the new ones.

Richer sounds LG sl7y with subwoofer £249 ok its more £ but imo the best at the price point .. DTS-VIRTUAL X, BT,
HI RES AUDIO, 3.1 , chromecast, wireless surround ready ie SPK8 speakers to rear of room 5.1 sound more £ if req.
Sub and spk8 are Bluetooth connection to bar.

I have the next Model up... the Yas 108.. very similar in spec its a good soundbar.. has various presets if you want to turn the bass higher or lower.. you can add bass extensions or turn the subwoofer off as well.. clear voice works well too.

DTS virtual x is really tinny sounding though.. I think it depends what you switch it on for, does sound amazing with call of duty I have to say.

4K pass through also

That's really interesting. Mine arrived earlier in the week and I've been blown away with how 3D Surround/DTS: Virtual X sounds with both TV and films. I've not yet tried it with games (though eager to now!). One thing I did do (more out of habit with HiFi) was to raise it up off the TV stand using the supplied rubber feet. I don't know how it would have sounded without them.
