YAS101BL - Yamaha Black Low-Profile Soundbar

The YAS-101 is a slim, low-profile Sound Bar speaker system featuring the latest AIR SURROUND XTREME technologies and a built-in powerful subwoofer that delivers a 7.1 channel surround sound from a single unit all in a stylish, beautiful piano black finish.

Features:

  • Integrated System with Dual Front Speakers and Subwoofer
    The YAS-101 soundbar combines two 2-1/2” cone speakers with a dual-driver (3” cones) subwoofer, driven by a digital amp with a total output of 120W. Although compact, its excellent structural design provides a large volume enclosure for both the speakers and subwoofer. The result is powerful, high quality sound that makes TV and movies much more enjoyable.

  • Dual-Driver Subwoofer Powerfully Reproduces Bass Sounds
    The dual-driver subwoofer employs large magnets and large-diameter voice coils to realize dynamic and robust bass sound reproduction. This ensures that the overall sound has a rich sense of presence, making movie effect sounds more realistic.

  • Bass Reflex Port Contributes to Deeper, Richer Bass
    The YAS-101 employs a bass reflex port that has a straight shape and adequate length to provide outstanding bass response together with the large volume cabinet. The duct outlet is shaped like a trumpet bell, which reduces wind noise for better sound clarity.

  • Saran Net Grille Enhances Sound Definition
    The grille protecting the speaker unit is a saran net that allows unimpeded sound flow. All sounds, including vocals and music, are clear and pleasant to listen to.

  • 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 soundbar. You’ll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field, with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action at the back and sides.

  • Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats
    The YAS-101 sound bar 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.

  • Audio Delay Control (Lip Sync)
    This technology adjusts the timing of the picture and dialogue.

  • Jack for an Extra Subwoofer
    The Subwoofer Out jack lets you connect an additional subwoofer to enjoy even more powerful bass sound.

  • Slim, Low-Profile, One-Body Design Allows Positioning in Front of a TV
    With a height of only 4-1/4”, the YAS-101 can be easily positioned in front of a TV so the soundbar straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height can be adjusted. Because both speakers and subwoofers are built in, it fits more easily into available space than separate components.

  • Can Also Be Hung on a Wall
    If the TV is hanging on a wall, you can remove the stand and hang the YAS-101 on the wall as well.

  • Built-in IR Flasher for TV Remote Control Signal Transmission
    Even if the YAS-101 blocks the TV’s remote control signal, the IR flasher on the back 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-101 can “learn” the TV remote control operation, so you can use the TV remote control to turn the YAS-101 on and off and to adjust its volume.

  • Simple to Operate Remote Control Supplied
    The YAS-101 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. Together with the Learning function, you can use either the TV remote or the Yamaha remote for easy operation.

  • Stylish Design Achieves Both Visual Beauty and Ease of Use
    Although low enough to be placed neatly in front of a TV, the body is beautifully finished with an elegantly curved front surface. It adds a stylish accent to your entertainment area.

  • Glossy Black Finish Matches Flat-Screen TVs
    The front panel and top have a rich, glossy "piano black" finish that harmonizes beautifully with the newest thin TVs, for a stylishly compact home theater system.

Looking to upgrade from the stock speakers in my my Samsung 58" Plasma TV. Saw it recommended on CNET video podcast. Stock speakers in TV were not bad, so I was a little unsure how much better the YAS-101 would be. It did not disappoint. The virtual surround effect is pretty good, and bass response surprisingly good for an internal subwoofer. If you're looking to step up your TV sound quality and don't want to mess with a bunch of speakers and wires all over your room, this is the ticket. And the fact that its piano black finish matches my Samsung perfectly is a plus. I mounted it above the TV, even though the Yamaha instructions never show it that way, and it works very well. Voices seem so come right out of the characters mouths.

Only thing I miss is a digital readout of sound level on front of unit or on TV screen. Level lights are inexact, but can understand why this feature might have been left out to keep cost down.

There was substantial difficulty getting the sound bar to "learn" the remote controls of the DVD player, Cable box remote, TV remote and VCR remote. The instructions were difficult to follow because the unit didn't do what the instructions said it would do when certain buttons were pushed to accomplish the pairing, such as the red light flashing when the power button is released.

    Can't come up with anything bad.
    Looks and sounds very nice. Yamaha hit a home run with this product. And I have heard other brand surround bars that do not come close to this one.

      Comments about Yamaha Black Low-Profile Soundbar:

      I bought this to increase the puny sound from my TV. I put it behind the TV instead of in front and the remote still will work since there is a gap of about 3 inches between the table and the TV height for the remote signal to reach the sound bar. I turn off the sound on the TV and just use the sound bar.

      Only issue I had setting it up was the remote is taped into one end of the foam packaging and took me a while to find that.
      Be sure and check your TV outlet because I had to buy an optical connector since my TV only has digital outlet. Works great!!!
