Taking a look at Bose Solo 5 vs Yamaha YAS-108 features we can notice that both units have the same Built-in channels of 2.0. At the same time, Yamaha beats Bose with its 5.1 Supported channel quantity versus Bose's 2.0.
Unfortunately, these speakers don't have Built-in subwoofers as well as Separate subwoofers (in the package) and no Streaming services.
Still, Yamaha YAS-108 boasts its Alexa Voice control. Both soundbars no have Multichannel surround (Dolby Atmos and DTS:X) and WI-FI Connectivity. But there is one with Bluetooth.
With its low, flattened design, the Yamaha YAS-108 looks like a giant's tongue depressor. The 2-inch high soundbar is engineered to either sit flat on a TV stand or attach to the wall using the integrated keyhole ports. The speaker has an onboard gyroscope that optimizes the sound depending on whether it's positioned.
As an entry-level soundbar, there is no on-screen display, just a series of LEDs corresponding to the input selection and volume. It's less confusing than the Vizio's displays, but it still only makes sense at arms-length where you can read the legends.
The Bose Solo has a decidedly different style. There's a higher-quality feel as soon as you pull it out of the box, even though its cabinet is made of plastic. The Solo feels solid, and its curved edges and matte-gray finish give it an aesthetic edge. Say what you will about Bose, but the company knows how to design attractive products.
Like other pedestal-style soundbars, the Bose Solo is designed to sit under your TV, rather than in front of it, like more-traditional soundbars. The uncluttered look of pedestal soundbars also avoids the pesky issue of blocking your TV's remote sensor.
The Yamaha YAS-108 is better soundbar in this comparison. Check Yamaha YAS-108 price
