Seems a good deal. Starting 11th, available in store and online.


The simple way to make your TV sound as good as it looks. Built-in subwoofers, DTS® Virtual:X™ virtual 3D surround sound, and slim enough to fit in front of your TV or wall-mounted.

DTS Virtual
The YAS-108 can virtualize immersive 3D surround sound, simulating sound effects that seem to move around the listener and even have a sense of height. 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.

Clear Voice
Clear Voice mode brings the sound of narration and dialogue to the fore while keeping the overall sound quality intact. Movies, TV shows, sports commentary and newscasts are all instantly more clear and audible.

Dual Subwoofers Built-in
Enjoy rich, deep bass without the need for a separate subwoofer unit. The dual subwoofers deliver exceptional low-end performance with the unique bass reflex port.

Stream Your Favorite Music with Bluetooth
Wirelessly connect up to two devices with Bluetooth, to hear music right from your sound bar. Designed for easy operation with quick switching between paired devices.

Amazon Alexa via Bluetooth
Pair the YAS-108 to your Amazon Echo device via Bluetooth, and play music or podcasts on your sound bar in rich and exciting detail.

Simple Connectivity
For a fast and simple setup, the YAS-108 comes with an optical cable for single cable connection to the output of the TV.
For the ultimate performance, the YAS-108 offers an HDMI input and output that can be used with separately-sold HDMI cables. It supports 4K Ultra HD and HDR pass-through, and HDCP 2.3 ensuring compatibility with the latest TVs and 4K Ultra HD devices.

Wall Mountable
Keyholes for easy wall-mounted installation and built-in gyroscope to optimize sound depending on whether the sound bar is positioned vertically or flat.

Choices for Control
Use the included remote, or download the free for Apple® iOS and Android™ devices to control the YAS-108. If your TV is compatible with HDMI-CEC and you use separately-sold HDMI cables to hook it up, you can turn the power on and off, switch inputs, adjust the volume and easily perform other operations by using your existing TV remote.

Subwoofer Output
While the YAS-108 comes with built-in subwoofers, it also has an output allowing for the connection of an optional powered subwoofer if desired.

Many thanks for the update, pity it does not support Dolby Atmos - However a good find
Amazing soundbar. Worth the money!
If this is anything like the 107, then forget it. Sound wasn’t great, muffled speech, and bass was poor too.

You need to typically spend decent coin (more than this) to get a good sound bar with built in woofer.

Otherwise, best going for separate woofer, especially in this price range.

Try the LG SK5, much better.
Beauty of buying from Costco .if it sounds rubbish just take it back.
I’ve still got a YAS103 which has done me well. Think it might be time to upgrade - I’ve had two TVs since then! Thanks OP
Maybe a stupid question but can these sync up sound and picture at the same time? Others I’ve tried in the past have always been out of sync with Bluetooth.

Had the 107, just replaced it with a Sony HT-X8500, and it's massively better, even without a separate sub. Atmos too.
How does this compare to this model?

I like the look of the model above but wondering which is better

I’ve been wondering this too. The 306 looks the superior option to me (which is reflected in the higher price point). It also supports AirPlay and Spotify music app which I don’t think the 108 does
Thanks OP. Deal now live and I've ordered one. Glad it's from Costco, as if rubbish I can return. But heard good things about it and seems ideal for the bedroom.

Top review on amazon has a breakdown of what setup options they found worked best (from a self confessed audiophile).

Seems like some people have issues with mid range loss. But reading between the lines seems to be if you ramp up the bass and switch the bass boosting modes on, it takes too much power from the other speakers. Their advice (user AJL) was:


Step 1- use the digital optical conection! ( Hdmi Arc doesnt work well. It is frustrating and truly unnecessary. Only negative of the soundbar listed capabilities)
2. Check your cable box audio setting. Will be different for all cable/satellite/Roku etc. Look to make sure it is on dolby surround setting. Not stereo. Trust me this makes a difference!
3. Check your TV's audio setting. Should be two options, stereo and surround/dolby. Make sure it is on surround.
4.If you go full bass extension, max sub woofer, and 3d on. It will sound awful!.
5. Do the following. Bass ext off!. 3d on. Sub level at 3 or middle. Clear voice on. This is the best for clearest treble, with crisp voice,and bass loudest as can be without any distortion that you can notice.
6. For your preference select just surround button( not 3d surround) and stereo. Noticable differences.
7. If you turn up the bass to highest possible setting, plus bass exention on 3d you will get a decent amount of power fading. The excess bass drawing to much power from the amp. Soundbar does not power fade when bass settings are lower.

Seems like the YAS 306 is an older model too though.

F it I may just go for this one as it's cheaper!

I have the Yas 108.. sound is decent with lots of different customisation options.

1 thing I will say though... the 3D Virtual X sounds awful... really ear peircingly tinny.

Think mines being delivered tomorrow Sadly. Thought it was coming Friday or Saturday but been delayed. How have you found it so far?

Could you please send a link to the app and cash back?
Mine was supposed to arrive tomorrow but happy it came today.

I like it. It’s my first ever sound bar so not really got anything to compare it to but it certainly beats the sound coming from the TV. Played a game so far on the PS4 and sounds great, will be watching a movie later. I have it set up as recommended by an Amazon reviewer, definitely a good starting point and will adjust minor settings to my preference.

Here’s the link for the cashback, but please note at the top it says valid for purchases between 15 May 2019 - 15 June 2020. This is a typo, it should read 15 May 2020 - 15 June 2020. This is clarified in the full Ts&Cs under point 3.2:

3.2 Promotion period: The purchase of the promotional devices must take place in the period from 15.05.2020 to 15.06.2020.

My order was placed on 11th May (although just received today), so just before the promotion period. I was going to Costco today anyway so as they had the same offer in-store, I purchased another one and returned that one straight away under my online purchase. Now I have a new receipt dated today and can claim for the cashback.

EDIT: I think you need to register the product on their website also.

Ok so I've done some changes after reading the Amazon reviewer settings. As his setting in my environment (bedroom) sounded a bit muffled.

Within the App:
Surround as Music
Sound as these settings
- 3D surround On
- Clear Voice Off
- Bass Extension Off
- Subwoofer +1

The voices come out very clear, there's a nice 'thud' in the background for the 'boomy scenes' but not too overbearing where it drowns it out. Music scenes play with clarify etc.

Makes it fill up sound surroundings for me without it feeling like the sound is coming directly from the sound bar only.

Trying to decide on subwoofer +1 or +2 at the moment. But for gaming and watching movies the above settings make it clear feel more cinematic and not muffled.

Thanks for the update. I've just changed my settings to match your suggestion and will watch a movie now and see how it goes. Enjoy the soundbar!
Hey all. Received mine as well and set up as per amazon comments. One thing I did do is use HDMI-ARC and it works great. Fully integrated with the TV.

Other than that it’s a great soundbar. I previously had the YAS103 and it’s a significant boost in clarity and bass from that. Also a lot smaller so looks a lot less overbearing!
Got mine - great sound, impressive bass (at least in my living room) from a device of this size, BUT... am having a really weird issue that I can't find anything about on the internet (hopefully someone here might know):

Xbox One X HDMI out >> HDMI In on soundbar. HMDI out on soundbar >> HDMI (ARC) on Samsung TV. Now, when I play Xbox, as soon as a game loads all the colours are inverted!?? Very weird. The colour goes completely crazy, only when a game loads.

Got a PS4 pro, no problems there (works fine in 4K), Sky box etc all work fine in 4K, it just seems to be the XB through the soundbar it goes haywire.

Have tried a couple of HDMI cables, I guess I probably need to buy yet another.
