Product Details

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.

After having this product for about two weeks I fell ready for a proper review. First of all this Yamaha YAS-101 sound bar is amazing! I've been researching sound bars for about a month  prior of making my final decision, going to a local [@] location and other electronic stores, which was only one and also read reviews online. Which It came down to these sound bars: Sony HT-CT 150, VIZIO sound bar, Samsung D450, Samsung D550, Polk Audio IHT4000 and 6000, Boston Acoustic TVee25, Yamaha YAS-101, and Sony HTC-T550. I consider myself an audiophile due to the fact I have a good sense of hearing and appreciate good quality sound. After couple of weeks of looking and researching and reviewing it only came down to a final winner, Yamaha YAS-101!! Comparing also with the price the Yamaha YAS 101 beats them all, all these other units were MORE expensive and u had to worry where to place the sub, which meant more wires. The setup took less then 3 minutes, has an internal sub woofer, clean curvy simple beautiful design, synced my dish network controller and my Samsung controller to it, clutter free, amazing crispy clean sound, no distortion even with the volume at highest!!!! The sub is perfect, the lows on this subwoofer are amazing, and the highs aren't  that high but it works for me even with an option for an external sub I didn't find a need for that :) works wonders with movies and also with your gaming consoles and your music sounds like no other. I really want another one for the gaming room, will purchase another when the time comes. I highly recommend this product to anyone that wants to enhance their tv sound. Yes we know this isn't a true 5.1 or 7.1 setup but i do believe now virtual surround sound,it just works.

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.

        Nice sound. Much better than our Samsung LED TV by it self. Easy to attach wire to TV that came with the sound bar. Getting our comcast remote to work with the sound bar was a challenge but I got it. This is not theater quality sound but very good for my living room.

          I bought this to help with hearing TV programs as I wear hearing aids and often needed to boost the volume on the TV which bothered other husehold members. I can direct the sound toward me better with this sound bar and lower the overall volume while still hearing programs. There was some confusion about how to set it up with my cable remote but working with the tech department solved that problem.

              A good economical option for TVs with poor speakers. Sound is good enough for those who do not want to spend money on a true surround sound set up for whatever reason. Now, I can hear the dialogue and call feel a bit of the sound effects.

                The TV remote can be programmed to operate cable box/tv/soundbar, however if you switch to watch streaming video you cannot control tv volume. You have to return to soundbar remote. I do not watch much streaming tv, so this is not a problem, just inconvenient. If you watch with a cable dvr box, you will only get stereo sound. If you watch streaming video, then surround sound comes on automatically, with much richer sound. I placed the soundbar in front of my tv, which delivers much better sound than above the tv on a shelf.

                The sound bar didn't improve the sound that much from the TV speakers on satellite programing to warrant the cost of the sound bar. There was more of an improvement in the sound with movies on the DVD though.
