I am considering to get a SoundBar for my computer setup, prefer a all in 1 solution with the sub built-in.

Most of the SoundBars are designed to connect to the TVs. And I wonder can the Yamaha YAS107 output computer sound if I have the proper connection such as the 3.5mm and optical out?

So long as your PC has the needed outputs it will work.

Quite big size, why didn't consider TV + Soundbar bundle before buying :s11:
So big at the most CT-800 if not big image with small sound.
However that is up to you, you can get cheaper sound like
CT-390 but may need to up the volume.

I am using X8000E but with AVR setup, my size only 43" but
decent enough 5.1 speaker power up to 600 Watt thumping power.
Feel like cinema for me, hopefully neighbor don't complain. :s13:

You can try Samsung MS650....built in subwoofer but packs a punch!

Mustafa is selling 480 plus whilst outside superstores are selling 6 to 700 plus

Just wondering. Is it better to buy soundbar of the same brand as the TV?

No. It is better to buy a Soundbar that supports the most audio standards from Dolby Surround to DTS Surround all the way up to the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for full compatibility of the majority of formats. Something like the Sony HT-ST5000.

He mentioned audio streaming. Like playing Spotify. But for movies and TV shows that have Dolby Atmos or DTS:X like a lot of Netflix TV shows and movies, then you are better off with Sony's HT-ST5000.
