What customers say about "Key Specs"
Yamaha YAS-105 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Dual Built-in Subwoofers
  • The sound of the Yamaha is rich enough with well defined middle to high frequencies and is really good for voices, both dialogue and singing.
  • The sound quality is quite above of what I was expecting for the price, with the bass being good and not drowing the higher frequencies, and everything else sounding clear and nice.
  • Brilliant sound after a few weeks of settling in. Handles music, TV and movies brilliantly.
  • The sound quality is very solid and clear, with plenty of bass for us and plenty of clarity. Its maximum volume would be too much for us in a decent-sized living room.
  • The bass is adequate when on max and the standby and remote teach functions as work well. Looks good too.
Yamaha YAS-106 Sound Bar with Dual Built-In Subwoofers
  • It has a nice design and pretty much blends in to the background. The low profile works nicely as it doesn't block any of the sensors for the TV controls.
  • TV sound is vastly improved, the virtual surround works nicely, and bass is sufficient.
  • Nice sound bar with good sound and excellent connectivity options. No space in my set up for surround sound so this filled my need quite well.
  • The sound is very distorted at a high frequency response. Which is very annoying because speech is hard to hear.
  • At low and high frequency response, a murky sound appears that does not allow you to hear well speech.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Yamaha YAS-105 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Dual Built-in Subwoofers
  • Pleasantly surprised by the depth of the sound considering the size and weight of the sound bar.
  • Small enough to fit easily under the TV, broad enough to spread the sound out.
  • Very pleased with this purchase, the unit is so sleek too it fits under the TV perfectly.
  • Excellent sound quality and small legs allow it to sit nicely in front of the TV stand.
  • A neat, compact soundbar with amazing sound, spectacular bass, defenitely recommended.
Yamaha YAS-106 Sound Bar with Dual Built-In Subwoofers
  • Sounds great for the size. The sub really completes the sound envelope and adds to the quality depth of the sound.
  • I’m happy with the sound produced by the sound bar, the size and quality, but I hate the remote and especially the stupid app which is such a pain to access and use.
  • Excellent quality for the price. It's compact yet has rich sound. There are certainly better sound bars out there but not anywhere near this price.
  • This is a terrific, compact, powerful system. Which does its job perfectly.
  • The result is big heavy speakers and wires all over the place. Yes, those set ups provide you with great sound.

What customers say about "Features"
Yamaha YAS-105 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Dual Built-in Subwoofers
  • There’s a bass extension mode, which I prefer rather than some units that over boost bass so it becomes muddled - if you want more bass you can raise it.
  • Good variety of surround sound features including the app which is brill and the added bonus of the learning feature which means you can use your own TV remotes etc.
  • This the best soundbar ever, super sound quality with built in Sub woofers with surround sound and comes with mobile app too.
  • The App is very good; you can select the mode (TV, movie, music, bluetooth etc), control the volume and switch it off.
  • I like the App available, it allows you to adjust the sound from your listening position very precisely.
Yamaha YAS-106 Sound Bar with Dual Built-In Subwoofers
  • This is a nice sleek sound bar - very easy to hook up to my TV and turn it on - no fancy setups or difficult installations involved.
  • Wall mounting installation was easy. Does include a template for where two drill the two holes for mounting, but does not come with the actual hardware screws for mounting.
  • This one fits the bill for all three. Super easy to install and set up, and the sound quality is excellent.
  • Sound quality is above average for similarly priced sound bars I have heard and the voice enhancement feature is a big help to those who may be experiencing diminished hearing.
  • HDMI out isn't compatible with 4k which seems weird because almost all new tv's in 2016 are 4k.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Yamaha YAS-105 Sound Bar with Bluetooth and Dual Built-in Subwoofers
  • Excellent sound and lots of options. Linked to mobile phone with Bluetooth easily.
  • Happy with this. Very good sound and the 3.5 analogue input is a bonus as I can use it to connect my phone using the headphone socket to play my Amazon music.
  • The Bluetooth facility was fast and easy to set up and sounds great playing from my iPad.
  • Best value for your money. It's a great upgrade from default speakers, easy to connect via Bluetooth to any device, sounds great.
  • Bluetooth works very well. Good bass sound with the subwoofer. I have tried a couple of these and this has been my best selection.
Yamaha YAS-106 Sound Bar with Dual Built-In Subwoofers
  • Perhaps one of the best features on the speaker is the Bluetooth connectivity.
  • It is very easy to interface between either my MacBook or iPad to test out some of my playlists.
  • Sound quality is actually pretty good. Streaming songs from my phone via Bluetooth is a nice feature. It's fairly easy to use with the units remote or your phone app.
  • The supplied optical digital audio cable failed after only two weeks of use.
  • When I turn on the unit in the next day their is no sound because HDMI (ARC) for some reason gets out of sync or perhaps or is faulty, difficult to say.
