Yamaha ATS-1070 vs Yamaha YAS-108

Yamaha ATS-1070 review

Initial testing Yamaha ATS-1070 vs Yamaha YAS-108 has been impressive: the ATS-1070 sounds very good at all volume levels and gets louder than I need, the ARC control is convenient, and BT streaming works great. The remote looks simple and dated but is perfectly functional. For the price, I doubt you'll find anything that sounds as good, and most competing units at $100 or less don't include ARC.
