Yamaha YAS-201 Soundbar

yas-201

Yamaha introduced the YAS-201 low-profile soundbar with 100W wireless subwoofer that can be placed anywhere in the room. Features include proprietary Air Surround Xtreme, UniVolume, Clear Voice, and easy installation with IR pass-through for seamless viewing control.

For placement in front of televisions, the YAS-201 is less than 4-inches tall and features IR pass-through to ensure that TV remote control operation is unobstructed.

The YAS-201 features Yamaha’s exclusive Air Surround Xtreme technology that delivers 7.1 channels of highly accurate surround sound, with precise positioning to more distinctly present 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, while its Clear Voice feature ensures that dialogue and narrations are easy to hear.

The YAS-201 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 other components in a home entertainment system.

The YAS-201 easily connects to any HDTV with a single digital cable (included), and provides two optical inputs, one for HDTV and one for Blu-ray/DVD.

The YAS-201 works with the optional Yamaha YIT-W12 yAired transmitter ($59.95) that can wirelessly stream music from Apple iPods, iPhones and PCs. It supports uncompressed linear PCM for high-quality audio.

Price and Availability
The Yamaha YAS-201 is available now for $449.95.
