About the Yamaha YAS-201

The Yamaha YAS-201 Sound Bar & Wireless Active Subwoofer System is designed to match most HDTVs. The system features a wireless active subwoofer with Advanced YST II technology, which reproduces rich bass with 100W of power output. The system also features a sleek, 60W sound bar with integrated digital amplifier. It can either be mounted on a wall or it can rest right in front of your flat-screen TV. The wireless subwoofer also allows for flexible placement, since it doesn't need to be right next to the sound bar. The YAS-201 uses AIR SURROUND XTREME technology to reproduce 7.1-channel surround sound.

With 7.1-channel surround, the YAS-201 is compatible with both Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound. Plus, it also supports UniVolume and Clear Voice technology. UniVolume keeps all programs and commercials at the same volume level, while Clear Voice enhances the clarity and volume of dialogue and narrations. You can also enjoy wireless streaming of audio from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or computer with the optional YIT-W12 adapter (sold separately).

Yamaha YAS-201 Features

  • Sound Bar with Wireless Active Subwoofer Delivers Superior Surround Sound from TV and Blu-ray Disc Sources: This two-component system composed of a sound bar and subwoofer produces 160 W of total power
  • Sound Bar Produces Clear Surround Sound: The sound bar houses a digital amp and two 2-1/8" (5.5 cm) cone speakers with large magnets to ensure high sound clarity. Its superb structural design allows high capacity cabinet volume for very powerful and clear sound, even though the body is very slim
  • Wireless Active Subwoofer with Advanced YST II: This 6-1/2" (16 cm) subwoofer features a large magnet and a front-firing configuration. Its high sound quality design takes advantage of Yamaha's proprietary Advanced YST II and a Linear Port to produce deep and smooth bass
  • AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Powerful Surround Sound: Yamaha's exclusive AIR SURROUND XTREME reproduces 7.1 channel surround sound with high quality, excellent imaging and rich presence, far superior to that of any other sound bar
  • Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats: The YAS-201 is compatible with popular surround sound formats, such as Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround, so you get the full effect of multichannel movie sound
  • Clear Voice Makes Dialogue and Narrations Easy to Hear: Clear Voice raises the level of dialogue and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies and TV shows, sports commentary and news broadcasts are more clearly audible
  • UniVolume Maintains the Same Volume Level: This welcome feature, made possible by Yamaha-developed technology, maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. It can be switched on and off
  • Stylish Design Achieves Both Visual Beauty and Ease of Use: Low enough to be placed neatly in front of a TV, the body has an elegantly curved front surface. Its glossy black finish matches flat-screen TVs and will add a stylish accent to your entertainment area
  • Convenient Positioning in Front of a TV Set: With a height of only 3-7/8" (9.8 cm), the sound bar can be easily positioned in front of a TV so it straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height can be adjusted
  • Sound Bar Can Also Be Hung on a Wall: If the TV is hanging on a wall, you can remove the stand and hang the sound bar on the wall as well
  • Wireless Active Subwoofer Allows Flexible Placement: The wireless subwoofer does not have to be connected to the sound bar, so setup and placement is faster and easier. This is a convenient subwoofer that delivers powerful, high-quality bass sound
  • TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission: Even if the YAS-201 blocks the TV, the Remote Repeater on the rear of the sound bar transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected
  • Learning Function Allows Operation with the TV Remote Control: The YAS-201 can "learn" the TV remote control operation, so you can use the TV remote control to easily turn the YAS-201 on and off and to adjust its volume
  • Wireless Streaming from iPod/iPhone/iPad and Mac/PC: The optional YIT-W12 Wireless Transmitter lets you enjoy music wirelessly from your iPod/iPhone/iPad or Mac/PC. The yAired technology developed by Yamaha provides uncompressed linear PCM transmission for clear, accurate sound output
  • Simple to Operate Remote Control Supplied: The YAS-201 remote is simple and easy to use. It lets you turn the power on and off, adjust the volume and do other basic operations and even lets you switch the surround modes
