Yamaha’s rich, natural sound and expansive surround fields will greatly enhance the enjoyment of all your media sources

    The YHT-S401 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray Disc players, as well as from all other digital sources
  • HDMI CEC Functionality

    The oval center speaker has a paper cone with excellent vibration mode characteristics, so unnecessary vibrations do not affect sound quality. Dialogue and vocals sound exceptionally clear and natural

    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

    When music is encoded in a digital compressed format such as MP3, frequency response suffers in the high and low ranges. Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms, enabling faithful reproduction of the original music, for excellent sound quality

    Yamaha uses advanced sound processing to extend the stereo soundfield (wider sound imaging) so you have more choice of optimum listening positions
  • Headphone Jack for Multi-channel sound
    The headphone jack lets you plug in your own headphones and enjoy virtual 7.1-channel sound in private
