About Yamaha YAS-101

The YAS-101 Front Surround Soundbar Speaker System (Black) from Yamaha provides high-quality surround sound in a slim and low-profile design. The unit can be used with or without the included stand, allowing you to position it in front of your television on a TV stand, or hang the soundbar on a wall. The curved front area and glossy piano black finish provide an elegant and stylish look that fits in with any decor and matches a variety of televisions.

The soundbar has a pair of 3" subwoofers and a pair of 2.5" full-range drivers that use large magnets and voice coils to provide excellent dynamics and clarity. A digital amp provides 120W of output power for a strong performance, while a large bass-reflex port works with the high-volume cabinet to increase bass response and clarity. The port is shaped like a trumpet bell to reduce compression, wind noise and distortion.

The speaker grille has a saran net structure to allow unimpeded sound flow for clear listening. You can use the subwoofer output jack to connect an external subwoofer for extra bass if desired. The YAS-101 has Yamaha's exclusive AIR SURROUND XTREME technology to reproduce 7.1-channel surround sound with excellent quality, imaging and presence.

The result is a realistic sound field with clear dialogue in the front and rich effects at the sides and rear. The unit supports popular surround sound formats such as Dolby and DTS digital surround to provide you with the full effect of multichannel sound. A Clear Voice feature raises the volume level of dialogue and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality.

This provides better clarity and speech intelligibility. The speaker's UniVolume feature maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, shows, commercials and input sources so you can avoid sudden spikes or drops in volume. An audio delay control adjusts the timing of the picture and dialogue to ensure perfect lip sync.

The speaker comes with a simple wireless remote control for convenience. The speaker also offers a "learning" function that allows it to be operated from your TV remote to reduce clutter. The YAS-101 even has an IR flasher on the rear, so if the speaker is placed in front of the TV and is blocking its IR receiver, functionality will not be affected.

Made a big difference compared to the sound system that came on the new 60" LED tv.

Love it

Love the sound. It has been perfect for my small tv room. I like the choice of boosting base or tv voice. My only problem is programming the tv remote to reduce the number of remotes needed. Neither the Sharp or the Verizon remote seems to work. It may be my lack of gizmo savvy. Not sure.
