Overview

Our take on the Yamaha YAS-108

Our customers were consistently shocked at the quality of sound they got from the previous version of this budget-friendly sound bar. Reviewers had many different ways of saying it should probably cost a lot more. I recently got to hear Yamaha's updated YAS-108 in person, and I was also astounded by the rich, full-range sound it put out. Its DTS Virtual:X processing did a great job of filling our cavernous vendor training room with simulated surround sound.

A "bang for your buck" champ from Yamaha

Our customers were consistently shocked at the quality of sound they got from the previous version of this budget-friendly sound bar. Reviewers had many different ways of saying it should probably cost a lot more. I recently got to hear Yamaha's updated YAS-108 in person, and I was also astounded by the rich, full-range sound it put out. Its DTS Virtual:X processing did a great job of filling our cavernous vendor training room with simulated surround sound.

Onboard amplification powers six drivers, including a pair of built-in ported subwoofers that deliver more bass than you'd expect from such a slim bar, especially at this price point. But if you want even more low-end rumble, there's a dedicated output for adding on a separate powered sub.

How does DTS Virtual:X work?

Many sound bars simulate Dolby Atmos or DTS:X by bouncing sound off your walls and ceiling. That's not what's happening here. The drivers inside the YAS-108 sound bar are slightly angled, but they're placed more or less where you'd expect to find them in two-channel bar. There are no upward-firing drivers. Instead, DTS Virtual:X almost completely relies on digital sound processing.

DTS uses what they call "spatial audio techniques" to make it seem like the sound is all around you. Incredibly sophisticated audio delays and adjustments create a larger, wider soundstage. That includes overhead atmospheric effects like leaves rustling on a tall tree or birds chirping above.

Check out Jeff Miller's article "What is DTS Virtual:X?" for more details.

Don't miss a word

Sometimes I have to rewind movie and TV shows because I didn't catch what the actor just said, and I'm sure I'm not alone. It can be hard to hear dialogue over the background noise. That's where Yamaha's Clear Voice processing comes in handy — it brings speech to the forefront so that dialogue is easier to hear and understand.

Stream your favorite tunes

Built-in Bluetooth makes it easy to stream your favorite tunes. You can wirelessly connect up to two compatible devices at once for quick switching between them. And if you have an Alexa-enabled device, you can pair the YAS-108 to that with Bluetooth, too.

Good sound bar for the value

Grease from El Paso, TX on 12/13/2018

For those of us that can't hear certain channels because the TC speakers don't have enough output, This sound bar is the answer. I can now raise the volume of the sound bar so that the channel is loud enough. The 'clear voice' button does enhance the audio so that one can hear the dialogue better. I can't get my Sharp remote to function with some features of the sound bar remote, even though the HDMI port is enabled since the instructions call for the cable since my TV is not ARC enabled. The Crutchfield rep did forget to include the cable with the order since one does not come with the unit. The TV was bought in 2011, so maybe it doesn't support some features of the sound bar.

Pros: Good features to enhance the TV sound.

Cons: Sound bar doesn't display on TV.

Surpass just improving dialog.

Great Sound bar! 3D surround is not to everyone's liking but wife loves it. Hooked up external sub and boom... Pretty sweet.

Pros: Clarity, good bass for soundbar only, option to add external sub. Plus plus plus.

Cons: 3D surround is different. Hard to describe changes tone somewhat also but wife loves it and would have it on anything else. BTW there is also just a surround mode (not 3d) which I personally like with voice clarity on.

Great value

Tim from Portland, ME on 12/6/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Considering the price, this bar is a great value. The sound is really quite good, especially mounted above our TV. My only gripe is that the only mounting options were keyholes. Threaded VESA holes would make mounting on a floating system much easier.

Pros: Great soundstage

Cons: Only keyhole mounts

Killer sound

Chuck from Camillus, NY on 11/25/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I redesigned my basement and sadly had to get rid of my 5.1 surround sound setup. I had no choice but to go with a sound bar. I picked the YAS-108 because I had a really good subwoofer that I wanted to keep. I'm glad I did because this thing pounds. It was incredibly easy to set up, and the sound is incredible. You don't need to use a subwoofer, but I'm glad I have it.

Pros: Allows a subwoofer, easy to set up, killer sound.

Cons:

I searched many sound bars and decided to get the Yamaha YAS-108. Great choice. The sound is outstanding. Many choices too choose from including added base. Plug it in and it works instantly. Very low learning curve. Love the Bluetooth. Connects instantly and sounds terrific. Crutchfield is excellent as always. For the price you won't be disappointed.

Bob from Rocky Mount, NC on 11/11/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great overall addition.. Good quality sound as you would expect a quality tv to have, yet unfortunately don't.

Pros: Good sound, good size, easy hook up.

Cons: No visual indication of some features, requiring having to go back and forth through settings to determine if the features are on or off.

Fine for our needs

Steven from Rochester, NY on 11/10/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We are quite pleased with the YAS-108. All we needed was something better than the lousy small speakers in the back of our TV. Since our TV is within an armoire the sound was having trouble escaping. We simply place the YAS-108 in front of the TV pointing upwards and plenty of sound reaches us! It has plenty of volume -- we never turn it up all the way. We use it mainly for shows with mostly dialog so I can't comment on the subwoofers. The "Clear Voice" setting helps some with understanding dialog but I would prefer that it had a few levels -- it doesn't provide enough clarity for me, someone with hearing aids. That is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars. If you use it for streaming music don't expect fantastic music quality, it doesn't begin to equal high-quality speakers, but what do you expect for this price.

Crutchfield customer from Clinton Twp, MI on 11/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installation was incredibly easy. Sound quality is very good for a single sound bar. The voices come through very clear. The phone app makes for quick & easy settings changes from music to sports, to big action movies. The Bluetooth connection allows for music to be played from my phone. And again another easy connection. I had a simple installation question that was handled quickly & concisely by the Crutchfield tech. Lastly, I searched for the same product at a better price, but couldn't beat the Crutchfield price.

Pros: Easy connection. Great range of sound for the money.

Cons: Surround mode not as rich as expected, but still very satisfying

Crutchfield customer from Missouri City, TX on 11/2/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Low profile was a plus for it to fit in front of the tv without blocking the display. Set up was a problematic getting the hdmi arc to work with the tv but Yamaha support was able to provide the answer which was not in the manual. Will probably add a subwoofer at some point. The bar does provide substantially better sound than the tv speakers. There is a bit of a lag after turning on the tv for the bar to auto start.

Pros: Form factor. Adequate sound to fill a fairly large room. Bluetooth connectivity.

Cons: Spotty installation instructions manual.

Wow!!what an easy purchase! The sound quality is unreal for the price, a true value in a world of junk! I shopped for a week before i purchased, read all kinds of reviews but when i read Crutchfield's review i was sold! And when i called the experience just got better. I will no longer shop the big box stores, Crutchfield is my go to store from now on. The Yamaha sound bar was so easy to hook up it was unreal. Thanks again.

Pros: Easy to hook up, sounds very high end.

Cons: Hiding wires hard to do.

I love this sound bar. The unit is installed in a motorhome and I didn't have the room or want for a separate sub woofer. The sound is incredible for such a small unit. It does everything is says it can do.

Pros: Sound is incredible. Perfect size Installation was simple especially with the included wall mounting template. Best value for the price.

Cons: For best sound it needs to be wall mounted

No-brainer upgrade for TV speakers

tony from Vancouver, WA on 9/23/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to replace an older Yamaha sound (ATS-1010) bar for the HDMI-ARC feature, and I'm very happy with the update. The setup is simple and the HDMI-ARC function means that any remote that can control my TV volume also adjusts the sound bar. This includes my Roku and TiVo remotes, and of course the original TV remote. After the initial setup - for my preferences, that's Clear Voice: On and Surround: Off - I find that I don't need the Yamaha remote at all. The unit is much slimmer than then older sound bar and looks great. The way the HDMI and power cables are routed, they're easy to hide. As a bonus, the unit has an "auto power standby" feature that means that the soundbar turns itself on and off automatically. I verified with a watt-meter that the power draw when the unit is in standby is essentially nothing (it bounces between 0.0 and 0.1W), which is great since the old sound bar would pull 6-7W if we forgot to turn it off (which had to be done either manually or with the Yamaha remote). Finally the Bluetooth feature works as advertised. The pairing process was simple from an Android device and sounds great. In summary, this unit is the perfect upgrade from TV speakers. It's not going to sound like a big 5.1 system with a dedicated subwoofer, but you'll also be up and running in just a few minutes and have really good sound.

Pros: HDMI-ARC works perfectly Simple installation and setup Auto power standby feature

Cons: I bought it before it went on sale... :)

RE: Decent sound . . . but it's not a sound nirvana

Jake from Unity, ME on 9/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Mixed feelings with the YAS-108. Originally I was a bit underwhelmed by the sound and options. I thought the 3D surround effect was lacking a bit of crispness of sound. For the first day I was disappointed as I had unrealistically expected a sound nirvana . . . a chorus of angels playing harps when the soundbar was engaged. OK, so the Yamaha YAS-108 isn't that good and still cannot measure up to my old surround sound system. I guess coming into this I had read the reviews and expected a lot more . . . and so I was starting to second guess my purchase. However, after another day or two of experimenting with different options and listening to the TV with and without the soundbar playing I begain to really appreciate the YAS-108. While I never found the Samsung TV's sound to be horrible, the YAS-108 most definitely improves the sound quality as I found I could hear a lot more sounds . . . I mean to say it wasn't just that the sound was magnified, but now the clarity is stepped up a notch. To be honest one of the main reasons I wanted to try a soundbar though wasn't for the improved sound, but rather because as I get older I find it more of a challenge to pick up the actor's dialogue. It often seems to get lost in the soundtrack of the TV show, movie, etc. I've played around with the Clear Voice feature and while it isn't as if someone was whispering the lines into my ear (or as good as listening to a movie with my Sennheiser headphones), voices come across clearer.

Plenty Of Boom For A Small Room!

Crutchfield customer from New York on 8/16/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed a sound bar for a small bedroom with a 4K 55" Sony XBR LOL. So you can guess I don't have much room for a sub or anything else as I have other devices in the room...etc. Do to lack of space I had to wall mount the sub above the tv on the wall, easy to do and sounds awesome. When I say awesome please don't expect the same sound as the venerable Martin Logan folded motion tweeters, or their X-subs, but for a small bedroom this ting rocks and it's so easy to understand it's features and how to read the sound bar lights, even if you've never used a YAS or YSP series. I know most audiophiles won't like too much processing but the 3D surround with clear voice enabled is freaking sweet the money!!! Dialogue and movies sound excellent, not good but excellent. Sports too! Anything!! For the price??? Yay!!!! Once I put my final desired settings my cable remote handles the rest. The sound bar responds to it all. Lovely. If you are in the market for a sound bar that of course will triumph your tv's built in crappy speakers and you need it for a smaller room please don't waste your time with brands like Vizio and the likes, listen, let companies like that make tv's and let companies like Yamaha take care of your audio.

Pros: Clear voice, 3D Surround with DTS Virtual: X!!!!, Gyroscope, 4K HDR, decent to good bass with optimal sound bar placement, plenty of features, sub output if desired...etc.

Cons: "Only" if you desire extra bass for a small room you can purchase a powered sub separately.

Great product. Sound is better than expected for a small unit. Very easy to hookup get running.

Pros: Strong Sound Easy to use

Cons: Only 1 HDMI input Optical cable included is cheap looking

Great on its own! Even better paired with a sub!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have the YAS 106 and love it. The 108 is even better. The 3D sound field is awesome. I love that the sound bar allows you to use any subwoofer. I have a SVS 12" beast paired wireless with the 108. Unbelievable sound. The app does not support the 108 as of this posting but should be available by the end of August.

Pros: 3D sound field processing actually has good sounding bass on its own size

Cons: remote - not lighted app not supported as of this posting

Lamont S. from Brooklyn, NY on 8/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had the YAS-107 and exchanged it for this YAS-108. The YAS-108 seems similar to the 107 but has a slightly more enhanced crispness to its sound output. Its rounded ends give it a styling enhancement as well. It is truly an excellent sound bar for those not really needing or wanting a home theater set-up but just a sound bar that produces better sound without even having to add a subwoofer for added bass at more than an affordable price for sound greatness.

Pros: Easy install Great inputs for convenience Stand or wall mount capable Fantastic sound quality

Cons: Feel sorry for some competitors with similar product in this price catagory.

It's not home theater experience, but I didn't buy it for that. It's a great upgrade over standard TV speakers which is what I wanted. I chose this unit because I already had a powered sub. Once I got it balanced, it works exactly as I expected. I no longer turn to the wife and ask "what did they say?"

Compared to my tv sound this a very good improvement. Excellent price for a soundbar. Wish the indicator lights where facing the front.

Pros: Build quality. Price

Cons: Indicator lights

Just okay

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to replace an older Sony 5.1 Dolby Digital surround system. The sound is satisfactory but not nearly as robust as my old surround system. It just sounds small. Which is not surprising since it does have smaller speakers. I have mine in a large 2 story family room, which is part of the problem. I think it is better suited for a smaller room. Setup is easy and straightforward. The mode status LEDs are confusing and lacking. There is not an LED for all of the modes. Pressing the Info button on the remote will cause the few LEDs there are to display in certain patterns depending on the mode. However you have to consult the manual to decifer the patterns. In addition, the LEDs are on top of the bar, making it impossible to see them while seated. Unless you mount the bar on a wall. In which case the bar is mounted with the top facing out making the LEDs visible.

Pros: - Easy to set up - Sounds better than built in TV speakers

Cons: - Small sound compared to a surround sound system - Difficult to determine what mode it's

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like it, definitely an improvement over TV speakers. It's probably the best you can do in a condo or apartment situation.

Pros:

Cons:

Amazing surround sound.

Crutchfield customer from Ojai, CA on 7/25/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was at first amazed by what I heard on my friends YAS-107. I waited for the 108 to be released and Crutchfield had it first. It is being used for music playback in an AirBnB house. When set to Surround Sound, the music fills the whole house!

Pros:

Cons: 3-D sound is not usable.

Features

2.1ch Active Soundbar Speaker: The Yamaha YAS-108 active soundbar speaker features a 2.1ch driver configuration with one 1" dome tweeter and one 2.125" mid-woofer for each of the left & right channels, as well as dual 3" subwoofers for the LFE channel. The YAS-108 delivers 120-watts of power to the enclosed drivers - 30 watts to each of the left & right channels and 60 watts to both subwoofers.

Built-In Subwoofers w/ Bass Extension: The YAS-108 is equipped with dual, built-in 3" subwoofers plus a unique bass reflex port and "Bass Extension" processing to deliver exceptional low-end performance without the need for a separate powered subwoofer. You can adjust the level of the built-in subwoofers independently from the soundbar's overall volume.

Clear Voice: Clear Voice raises the level of dialog and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies and TV shows, sports commentary and news broadcasts are more clearly audible.

Compressed Music Enhancer: The Compressed Music Enhancer restores frequency response lost during digital compression, so your music sounds the way it should. Optimized for Bluetooth audio transmission, you'll enjoy vivid, lively sound quality during wireless playback. When a compressed source is played, the Compressed Music Enhancer engages automatically.

Dolby Digital & DTS Compatible: The Yamaha YAS-108 soundbar decodes 2ch PCM, multi-channel PCM, Dolby Digital, & DTS audio signals. You can listen to these audio formats in Virtual Surround mode or 2ch Stereo mode. The 2ch Stereo mode is ideal for music, while the Virtual Surround mode provides a much more immersive soundfield for movies. From Yamaha's Home Theater Control App on your Apple iOS or Android device you select between different surround modes - TV Program, Stereo, Movie, Music, Sports, & Game.

Digital Audio Connector Audio Signal Type Audio Signal Format
HDMI Multichannel PCM 2ch-6ch, 32-192kHz, 16/20/24-bit
Bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS
Optical 2Ch PCM 2ch, 32-96Hz, 16/20/24-bit
Bitstream Dolby Digital, DTS

DTS Virtual:X + 3D Surround: The YAS-108 can deliver immersive 3D surround sound, simulating sound effects that seem to move around the listener and even have a sense of height. Thanks to DTS Virtual:X & 3D Surround the YAS-108 allows surround sound to be heard not only from horizontal directions, but also from varying heights. DTS Virtual:X can be used with any content (from 2ch to 5.1ch soundtracks), while delivering virtual height & virtual surround processing based on psychoacoustics (not reflective surfaces).  Ideal for use with any multichannel content (including DTS- and Dolby-encoded soundtracks) it creates more spacious, lifelike sound for all of your favorite TV shows, movies and games.

HDMI 2.0b: The Yamaha YAS-108 is outfitted with one HDMI input and one HDMI ARC output that support the latest HDMI 2.0b standards; such as 4K/60Hz, HDCP 2.2, 4:4:4 color subsampling, & HDR (High Dynamic Range) for full support of today's 4K content from Ultra HD Blu-ray & online video services (like Amazon & Netflix).

  • 4K/60HZ + HDCP 2.2: The YAS-108 supports up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @ 60 frames per second through its HDMI input and output. The HDMI input and output is HDCP 2.2 certified, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission. It also supports a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signal.
  • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: In addition, the HDMI input and output support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
  • Deep Color & x.v.Color: The soundbar's HDMI jacks support Deep Color & x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
  • 3D Ready: The YAS-108 soundbar supports 3D video pass-through (720p/1080p only) from connected 3D-compatible Blu-ray, games and broadcast devices to 3D-compatible HDTVs (all 3D components must be connected via HDMI). Special eyewear will be required for viewing 3D content.

High Dynamic Range: High Dynamic Range video provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. The YAS-108 supports HDR 10 and HLG.

  • HDR 10: HDR 10 is an open standard and currently the most popular HDR format on the market. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the receiver and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR.
  • HLG: HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) is primarily designed for live video feed and over-the-air broadcasts. It uses no pre-encoded metadata and is backwards compatible with SDR. HLG's native compatibility allows much of today's existing SDR infrastructure to be re-used for HDR in the future.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature of the YAS-108's HDMI output allows audio to be sent from your compatible TV to the soundbar through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your TV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.

Note: Because with some televisions, the ARC-enabled HDMI input will only pass 2ch PCM from devices connected to the TV via HDMI or analog, we recommend that you connect your Blu-ray player or  Satellite/Cable box to the Yamaha soundbar directly; and then connect the YAS-108's ARC-enabled HDMI output to your TV's ARC-enabled HDMI input. This setup will give you with the best overall sound performance.

Analog & Digital Audio Inputs: The YAS-108 is outfitted with both analog & digital audio outputs to connect to your TV. There is one optical (toslink) digital input that supports 2Ch PCM, 5.1ch Dolby Digital, and 5.1ch DTS audio signals (up to 24-bit/32-48kHz). There is also one stereo minijack (3.5mm) audio input for televisions without an optical digital out.

Note: The digital optical output terminals of some flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or satellite/cable box).

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Yamaha YAS-108 soundbar speaker system supports Bluetooth (v5.0)  A2DP wireless audio streaming (up to 33'). This allows you to stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device; such as your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/table, Windows Phone/PC, or Mac computer/laptop to the YAS-108 soundbar speaker. You will continue to navigate your music and view song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled device.

  • Dual Device Connection: The YAS-108 allows you to wirelessly pair and connect two Bluetooth source devices, so you can switch easily back and forth between devices and music libraries.
  • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the Yamaha soundbar speaker offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the YAS-108 soundbar offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
  • Bluetooth Standby: The Bluetooth Standby function allows you to turn On or Off the soundbar automatically, linked with the operation of a Bluetooth device.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Yamaha YAS-108.

Sub Out: A mono-RCA subwoofer output lets you hook up an optional powered sub (sold separately). The soundbar's built-in subs will continue to produce sound along with the external power sub.

IR Remote w/ HDMI-CEC: The YAS-108 comes with a sleek, easy-to-use IR remote control for wireless operation of the soundbar speaker. Also, if your TV supports HDMI CEC and uses HDMI connectivity, it is possible to adjust the volume of the sound bar using your TV's remote to simplify day-to-day operation.

Note: This soundbar does not allow you to program your TV remote to operate the speaker, but does offer HDMI control through your compatible TV's remote.

Home Theater Controller App: The YAS-108 is compatible with Yamaha's Home Theater Control App (HT Controller) for Apple iOS 9.0+ & Android OS 4.0+ devices. This remote app makes it easy to control the soundbar from your compatible Apple iOS or Android device via a Bluetooth connection. Its intuitive and easy-to-see operating screen uses icons that let you easily perform a variety of operations; including Input, Volume, Audio settings, and Surround modes. Surround modes include TV Program, Stereo, Movie, Music, Sports, & Game.

Mounting Options: Due to its slim profile, the soundbar fits in front of most flat-panel TVs without blocking the screen. If you prefer to wall-mount the speaker, the YAS-108 offers built-in keyhole slots (spaced 18" apart). A built-in gyroscope optimizes sound depending on whether the soundbar is placed on a table-top or hung on wall.

  • Table-Top Dimensions: 34.9375" (w) x 2.1875" (h) x 5.1875" (d)
  • Wall-Mount Dimensions: 34.9375" (w) x 5.1875" (h) x 2.1875" (d)

Auto Power Standby: When the Auto Power Standby function is enabled, the unit will automatically turn off when there is no operation for 8 hours. When Bluetooth or HDMI is selected as the input, the unit will turn off after no audio input and no operation for 20 minutes.

can uise sub-woofer out put [ jeffrey  Sep 11, 2018 ]
I've really enjoyed my Yamaha ATS-1010 - the "Clear Voice" feature makes a big difference and the sound bar has functioned flawlessly for over 5 years - but it was time to upgrade to a unit that supports HDMI ARC (and Bluetooth is nice too). Yamaha seems to dominate in this space at this price point, and I trust Crutchfield to carry quality items. [ tony  Sep 09, 2018 ]
Cheaper sound bar. New tv has terrible sound so opted for a cheaper sound bar with woofers but no sub as we don't really need a big system. If we went with a big system sound bars seem insufficient in general. [ Nathaniel  Sep 08, 2018 ]

Yes . [ John  Nov 29, 2018 ]
I have 12 jbl and 8 hk get the 12 jbl [ james  Sep 26, 2018 ]
It does not have a wireless subwoofer. There is a connection to add one, but, not wirelessly. While it does sound pretty nice it lacks deep bass. If you want more bass you may want to look at the YAS-207 as an alternative. Depending on your budget you could look at the YAS-706 which has a wireless sub and has a music cast system. [ kurt  Sep 07, 2018 ]
I purchased the sound bar without a subwoofer. The unit itself has very strong bass. I would not spend more for a subwoofer. Try it alone first. [ JAMES R  Sep 06, 2018 ]
I have a slight hearing loss in one ear and also found voices to be unclear from my TV speakers. My soundbar is on a 29'' high TV stand and I can now hear voices with no problem. Mounting it on a wall might be better, but the table works well enough for me that it wasn't necessary. [ Paul  Sep 10, 2018 ]
For someone who is slightly hard of hearing I would install it on the table-top option facing the listener. A better option (your loved one will feel like she has perfect hearing) would be what I did for my father who is almost completely deaf, and that is purchase the Sennheiser RS 175 wireless headphones. Amazing sound and she won't miss a thing. Just make sure her tv has an optical cable input. Hope this helps. [ PAUL  Sep 10, 2018 ]
If mounted on a wall, the drivers will be facing the audience. If placed on a table, the drivers will be facing up. [ Peter  Sep 10, 2018 ]
Mounted on the wall would produce the best sound quality so that there is nothing obstructing the sound and if possible might even be better if it was mounted about the TV for someone hard of hearing. [ Melinda  Sep 10, 2018 ]
Your better to put on the wall [ RON  Sep 10, 2018 ]
For me, I think you'd have to mount it to a wall as opposed to laying it flat. In addition to the sound projecting better from that position (IMO), you can see the indicator lights better. [ Andy  Sep 10, 2018 ]
We have ours on the table in front of the tv. Possibly on the wall facing forward would be better, but too little difference to matter, in my opinion. BTW, I like the simplicity of the connectivity, and the sound is a big improvement, especially for speech. [ William  Sep 10, 2018 ]
I tried both , I like the wall , better sound [ Harry  Sep 10, 2018 ]
We have on the table and it works great. Use clear voice. Paul. [ Paul  Sep 10, 2018 ]
Mount on wall with speakers facing forward. This also Gives you better control with your remote control. The clear voice works great. [ HENRY  Sep 09, 2018 ]
