Yamaha YAS-107 Review and Specs

Yamaha YAS-107Yamaha engineers first proposed replacing a complex installation and cumbersome surround system, including six, and sometimes even more than a dozen speakers, with a relatively compact and easy-to-install acoustic panel located directly below the TV on the shelf of the nightstand or directly on the wall. Want to see what it turned out to be? Follow our Yamaha YAS-107 review for Yamaha YAS-107 specs.

Features

Its output power is 120W. There are 2.0 built-in channels. Yamaha said the YAS-107 will be one of the leaders in sound panels adding DTS Virtual: X. DTS Virtual: X will mix any source from dual channel stereo to 7.1.4 channels.

Design and build

Outside, the YAS-107 has a smoother shape than its predecessor, and on the inside there are two 1-inch dome tweeters, two 2-1 / 8-inch mid-range drivers and two 3-inch cone subwoofers in a two-port design. There is a bass port at each end of the soundbar.

Connectivity

The YAS-107 includes some of the latest HDMI technology and gives you the flexibility to customize your entertainment room as you see fit. There is one HDMI 2.0a input with HDCP 2.2. This means that you can connect 4K UHD sources to the soundbar and then transfer this signal to your TV to take advantage of the high dynamic range (HDR-10, but not Dolby Vision) and the BT.2020 advanced color gamut in 4K UltraHD Blu- ray and 4K UHD. Why is this important for an audio device? Well, as I mentioned above, the YAS-107 gives you the ability to connect a 4U UHD source directly to the soundbar, and the video will be transmitted to the TV. The HDMI 2.0a output supports Audio Return Channel (ARC), which will transmit sound to the soundbar from your TV. This is useful when you use the TV’s built-in tuner or any media streaming applications. You need to make sure that your TV supports this function in order to work, but today it is quite common.

Setup

You can control the Yamaha YAS-107 in one of three ways:remote control turned on, remote control your TV, or using the Yamaha Home Theater App on your smartphone or tablet. The Home Theater app is easy to set up and use. Most of the sound bars in this budget are not equipped with any application, which may be a decisive factor for some consumers.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Very clear and simple instruction manual
  • The remote control is also very simple and I like that you can control the level of bass and Surround

Cons

  • The combination of overall size and the mounting hole placement (on the bottom)
