Yamaha YHT-S401 Sound Bar Speaker System

696677.jpg

Yamaha introduced the YHT-S401 sound bar speaker system with subwoofer-integrated receiver (model SR-301). The uniquely-styled system provides expansive, virtual 7.1 surround sound from two compact, easy-to-place components.

The YHT-S401 consists of an ultra-slim soundbar featuring powerful dual 50-watt full range speakers at each end, with an integrated 50-watt center channel speaker that provides exceptionally clear dialogue for greater home theater entertainment. This sound bar is perfectly matched with a cleverly designed 100-watt subwoofer-integrated receiver that can be oriented either horizontally or vertically for convenient placement. The end result is an extremely versatile system that delivers crisp, lifelike surround sound with room-rattling bass that adds tremendous impact to the overall enjoyment of home theater.

A luxurious mirror black finish and gently curving design define the overall YHT-S401 system, matching flat-screen TVs and adding a sophisticated elegance to any decor.

The YHT-S401 system’s surround sound bar has adjustable stands that rotate to ensure the exact height is achieved for placement in front of virtually any TV. The stands can also be removed for wall mounting.

Room filling virtual 7.1 surround sound is achieved through the company’s proprietary AIR SURROUND XTREME, which provides amazing clarity and sound imaging unlike any other soundbar system.

Six surround modes – Movie, Music, Sports, Game, TV Program and Standard – make it easy for the user to find a listening experience best suited for any type of entertainment content. Yamaha’s Clear Voice feature makes dialog and narration easier to hear, enhanced further by the oval center channel speaker which ensures natural sound reproduction with low listening fatigue.

Yamaha SR-301 Subwoofer Integrated Receiver

The YHT-S401 offers compatibility with many sources: HDMI (3 in/1 out) supporting 1080p resolution, 3D Video, ARC (Audio Return Channel) and HD Audio formats. A headphone jack enables consumers to enjoy virtual 7.1-channel surround sound from headphones.

For even further enjoyment of music sources, the YHT-S401 also includes a built-in FM tuner and a Digital USB connection for iPod/iPhone, which enables these devices to be transmitted directly, minimizing interference and maximizing sound.

Yamaha proprietary Music Enhancer technology makes compressed music files (MP3 and AAC, for example) sound much more rich, detailed and realistic.

Price and Availability
The Yamaha YHT-S401 includes an updated remote control featuring enhanced design and functionality, and is currently available for $699.95.
