Yamaha YAS-101 Sound Bar Speaker

692508.jpg

Yamaha announced the entry-level, YAS-101 Front Surround 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.

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 120 Watts. 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.

The YAS-101 features Yamaha's exclusive Air Surround Xtreme technology that delivers 7.1 channels of highly accurate surround sound, with precise positioning to more distinctly deliver dialog, sound effects and music soundtracks that immerse the listener in movies, sporting events, concerts or any other programming. The model also supports Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound formats. Yamaha's UniVolume function eliminates the annoying and unsettling spike in volume during commercials when watching TV programming.

The YAS-101 can be operated by the supplied remote control, and can also be powered on and have its volume adjusted via the user's TV, cable or satellite remotes. This is made possible by the sound bar's ability to learn the control codes of these other components of a home entertainment system.

Offering great installation flexibility, the 4-1/4″ tall YAS-101 can be placed in front of the TV without blocking the picture. The unit's feet are placed wide enough apart to fit over the monitor's pedestal. Since the sound bar will often be placed in front of the TV, Yamaha engineers built-in a unique and patent-pending solution that allows the YAS-101 to pass IR remote codes through to the TV, solving a problem that plagues other sound bars. It can also be placed on a separate shelf or easily wall mounted.

The YAS-101 easily connects to any HDTV with a single digital cable (included). This sound bar also provides two optical inputs, 1 coaxial input, as well as a subwoofer output (line out) for an optional external subwoofer.

MSRP: $299.95
