Features

Yamaha YAS-108 is a bass reflex system in which two identical three-way speakers are combined, the HF / MF part being swung by two 30-watt amplifiers, and a separate module for 60 Watt is allocated for bass. Two tweeters with an inch dome are responsible for high frequencies, two drivers with diffusers of 2 1/8 inches each are responsible for the mid-frequency range. Built-in subwoofers are two miniature 3-inch speakers.

Design and build

The case of the model that was present at my test is completely covered with an acoustically transparent red fabric, so lovers of "fit into any design" are unlikely to be happy. YAS-108 is thought out in such a way that it can be placed both on the stand in front of the TV and mounted vertically on the wall, for which special ears are provided in the case. The physical controls located on the top panel allow you to steer almost all the functions of the Yamaha YAS-108. If you don’t want to use the included remote control and are used to using a smartphone, then download the proprietary Yamaha Home Theater Controller application.

Connectivity

In total there are two digital inputs - HDMI and optical, there is also an analog input on the 3.5 mm mini-jack, outputs - HDMI and an analog output to the subwoofer. Support for all major signal formats and HDMI functions - present, including HDR10 and HLG, as well as ARC and CEC control protocols. Wireless capabilities here are presented by Bluetooth of the latest version 5.0, which is enough to connect a smartphone or tablet and stream music from them. The kit also includes a small and convenient remote control.

Setup

Like all modern Yamaha equipment, the YAS-108 soundbar is simple and intuitive to install. Connecting to a Sony OLED TV, Oppo UDP-203 Blu-ray player, downloading the application and connecting to a smartphone took no more than 10 minutes.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The bass is surprisingly powerful for it's size
  • 3D Surround is probably something I'll keep on till this soundbar dies
  • Bass extension takes it to another level

Cons

  • DTS Virtual:X is horrible. It's supposed to simulate sound coming from the ceiling. You'll know when it's on when you see the surround LED blue
