Yamaha YAS105 Soundbar – Exceeded my expectations by a distance

Great quality sound form this unit.

Pleasantly surprised by the depth of the sound considering the size and weight of the sound bar. I changed from a proper pioneer amp with kef and eltax speakers so i wasn’t expecting a sound upgrade but wanted to reduce the overwhelming array of speakers and wires filling the room and this soundbar has been a pleasant surprise. Plenty of bass and some nice clean vocals.

Great soundbar, great price, great brand. No frills, just right for most. . I was looking for a compact soundbar without a subwoofer due to lack of space, but i wanted it to sound good. After comparing it to a bose solo 5, i decided the yamaha yas 105 sounded better, the bose being a bit bass heavy and seemed to have an even poorer stereo image. Soundbars etc will always be a compromise compared with separate speaker systems (both stereo or surround) but this yamaha is just the right size for my small lounge. It is marginally narrower than my 40′ panasonic tv, to which i hooked it up via the optical cable, supplied with the yas105. The set up instructions were easy, the learn function being useful too so it now operates with my tv / virgin remote for volume and power on/off. You will still need the supplied remote , or the yamaha app on a smartphone or tablet to change the sources from bluetooth to tv or vice versa. The sound: the yas105 has a nicely evenly balanced sound, with not too ‘boomy’ bass. It’s not trying to impress too hard which is good for prolonged listening/viewing.

  • Top marks to Yamaha
  • Easy connect and setup
  • Better than I expected

Wow fantastic sound ,it was a toss up between this and a bose sound bar so reading all reviews on the yamaha it was clear that this has great reviews so that was the reason i chose to go with it and wow i am so glad i did because its well worth the money.

Excellent piece of kit, currently overpriced. . Sound quality is excellent for a soundbar, great bass and you can add a sub if it’s not enough. The feature that this bar can learn your tv remote’s volume and on/off functions make it virtually integrated into your tv without the need for return channel hdmi. It powers on/off with you tv as long as you point the remote at both devices. Not sure it is worth £200 though, it was £99 dec 2015 and sat at £130-140 for six months until now.

Brilliant sound after a few weeks of settling in. Handles music, tv and movies brilliantly. The control app for iphone is a bit hit and miss, but the bluetooth streaming option is good. Option for a separate subwoofer but i don’t think i’ll need one for my mid-sized living room.

I absolutely love this pounding sound bar. I absolutely love this pounding sound bar. It is definitely the best quality soundbar by a long shot for this price range. Yamaha invented the soundbar so these guys know what they’re at.
