Yamaha YHT-494 Home Theater in a Box

Yamaha announced the YHT-494 Home Theater in a Box system. The YHT-494 brings consumers a whole new level of simplicity and convenience, while delivering clear, dynamic sound from a 3D, High Definition (HD) audio capable receiver.

Yamaha is known for its signature HTiB systems that offer superior features at affordable price points, such as ample HD source connectivity and HD Audio decoding–ideally suited for integration with Blu-ray players, flat panel displays, HD services, game consoles and portable audio/video devices.

The YHT-494 (5.1 Channel, 600W Total Power) compact and stylish system consists of a unique, ultra-slim “sound bar” front speaker, two small rear surround speakers and a 100-watt Advanced YST subwoofer.

The sound bar, which faithfully recreates the center, left and right channels thereby eliminating the need for additional front speakers, is only 2-inches high and fits unobtrusively in front of most 32 to 50-inch TVs without blocking the screen. The feet of the sound bar can be adjusted or removed entirely for great flexibility in placement, regardless of the shape and width of the TV stand.

The YHT-494 can accept HD Audio signals from Blu-ray Disc players, and features the company's exclusive Quad-Field CINEMA DSP with 17 Surround Sound programs that create realistic and thrilling, immersive audio experiences.

Yamaha equipped the YHT-494 with advanced capabilities found on its premium systems, such as popular SCENE buttons for one-touch simple operation. The four buttons are set to default settings for Blu-ray/DVD, TV Viewing, CD listening and radio listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button.

On the video front, The YHT-494 comes equipped with four 1080p-compatible HDMI V.1.4 inputs to connect to four high definition A/V sources, as well as one 1080p HDMI output that provides the highest video quality. Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v Color Standard along with high refresh rates ensure a true, accurate color viewing experience.

For the ultimate in flexibility, users can also enjoy their portable music on their YHT-494 with the company's optional YDS-12 Dock or YBA-10 Bluetooth wireless Audio Receiver.

The Yamaha YHT-494 is available from authorized Yamaha dealers, retailers and online from Yamaha for $549.95.
