Product Description

Product Description

A one-body surround soundbar system with built-in powerful subwoofer. Easy setup, stylish design and luxuriously rich surround sound — this surround soundbar takes video enjoyment to a new level.

High Sound Quality

Integrated System with Dual Front Speakers and Subwoofer The YAS-101 combines two 6.5 cm cone speakers with a dual-driver (7.5 cm cones) subwoofer, driven by a digital amp with a total output of 120W. 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.

Dual-Driver Subwoofer

This powerfully Reproduces Bass Sounds The dual-driver subwoofer employs large magnets and large-diameter voice coils to realise dynamic and robust bass sound reproduction. Which ensures that the overall sound has a rich sense of presence, making movie effect sounds more realistic.

Bass Reflex Port

Contributes to Deeper, Richer Bass The YAS-101 employs a bass reflex port that has a straight shape and adequate length to provide outstanding bass response together with the large volume cabinet. The duct outlet is shaped like a trumpet bell, which reduces wind noise for better sound clarity.

Saran Net Grille

Enhances Sound Definition The grille protecting the speaker unit is a saran net that allows unimpeded sound flow. All sounds, including vocals and music, are clear and pleasant to listen to.

The YAS-101 gives a surround sound effect from one bar wth no setup required

Surround Realism

AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Powerful Surround Sound

Yamaha's exclusive AIR SURROUND XTREME reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with high quality, excellent imaging and rich presence, far superior to that of any other soundbar. You'll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field, with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action at the back and sides.

Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats

The YAS-101 is compatible with popular surround sound formats, such as Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround, so you get the full effect of multichannel movie sound.

Practical Sound Features

Clear Voice Makes Dialogue and Narrations Easy to Hear

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.

UniVolume Maintains the Same Volume Level

This welcome feature, made possible by Yamaha-developed technology, maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources, this feature can be switched on and off.

Audio Delay Control (Lip Sync)

This technology adjusts the timing of the picture and dialogue.

Jack for an Extra Subwoofer

The Subwoofer Out jack lets you connect an additional subwoofer to enjoy even more powerful bass sound.

Can be easily placed in front of a TV without worry of blocking remote control signal

Convenient Placement, Easy to Use

Slim, Low-Profile, One-Body Design Allows Positioning in Front of a TV

With a height of only 10.7 cm, the YAS-101 can be easily positioned in front of a TV so it straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height can be adjusted. Because both speakers and subwoofers are built in, it fits more easily into available space than separate components.

Can Also Be Hung on a Wall

If the TV is hanging on a wall, you can remove the stand and hang the YAS-101 on the wall as well.

Designed to be wall mounted if desired straight out of the box, no extra brackets required

Built-in IR Flasher for TV Remote Control Signal Transmission

Even if the YAS-101 blocks the TV's remote control signal, the IR flasher on the back transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected.

Learning Function Allows Operation with the TV Remote Control

The YAS-101 can "learn" the TV remote control operation, so you can use the TV remote control to turn the YAS-101 on and off and to adjust its volume.

Simple to Operate Remote Control Supplied

The YAS-101 remote is simple and easy to use. It lets you turn the power on and off, adjust the volume and do other basic operations, and even lets you switch the surround modes. Together with the Learning function, you can use either the TV remote or the Yamaha remote for easy operation.

High Quality Design

Stylish Design Achieves Both Visual Beauty and Ease of Use

Although low enough to be placed neatly in front of a TV, the body is beautifully finished with an elegantly curved front surface. It adds a stylish accent to your entertainment area.

Glossy Black Finish Matches Flat-Screen TVs

The front panel and top have a rich, glossy black finish that harmonises beautifully with the newest thin TVs, for a stylishly compact home theatre system.

Product Description

One-body system with built-in powerful subwoofer. Easy setup, stylish design and luxuriously rich surround sound this soundbar takes video enjoyment to a new level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Piece of Equipment 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this due to my Sony Bravia flat TV having very poor sound. Chose this due to it having very good reviews and ordered it via Amazon from Richer Sounds. Ordered it the weekend before Xmas, not expecting it till maybe the new year with the Xmas period being so busy. To my amazement it arrived on Xmas Eve! 2 day delivery, excellent service.

So the unit itself. The unit comes with an optical cable which I just plugged into the optical out socket at the back of my TV, plugged the power cord into the wall socket, turned down the TV speakers and switched on the Soundbar. It really is that easy to set up.
What a revelation. Rich full sound, smooth bass and crystal clear clarity. All of a sudden you can hear grass swishing under the actors feet as he walks across a field, birds singing in the background and every syllable of dialogue in the film. I have the sub turned up to one point less than max and this is perfect for me.
Absolutely amazing sound from such a small unit and I can't say it sounds much different to my old Technics Hifi.

Of course, surround setting is not anywhere near 7.1 or even 5.1, but it does make the sound much fuller and seems to widen the sound.

If you are expecting the sound of bullets whistling past your ears and ricocheting behind you you will be disappointed and you need a true home cinema setup. If you are an audiophile that pays 600 just for a pair of speakers and 1500 on an amp, this unit is not for you.

IF you are someone casually looking for merely excellent sound quality from your TV, rather than the absolute excellence for excellence's sake that a true audio enthusiast would look for, then be very prepared to be blown away with the Yamaha YAS101.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous bit of kit if I do say so myself 23 May 2012
By Fatboy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I have a Sony LED backlit tv and like most of these kind of tv's, they suffer from not spectacular sound due to the thin depth of the tv not allowing any speaker of size and quality to be installed inside.

Has the room my tv is in is not very big, I thought that the soundbar would be the perfect solution for me to be able to improve the sound that I am used to.

There are two ways that you can connect the sound bar to your tv. First is you can individually connect the separate devices up to the soundbar (which is the method I used). Secondly, you can connect either a digital coaxial or a digital optical cable (depending on what your tv has on) to your tv. For me, this connection method would only allow me to receive the lesser sound quality Dolby Pro Logic sound (I was made aware of this by the indicator light on the Yamaha soundbar). Your tv might be different and might allow you to receive a Dolby Digital or DTS signal direct from your tv from one of the devices that are connected to it.

So the connection method used was as follows. The BD/DVD optical port of the Yamaha soundbar, I had a optical lead connected to my Sony Blu Ray player. STB port, I had a digital coaxial cable connected and this went to my Sky HD + box. Lastly I had my Playstation 3 connected to the TV optical port on the Yamaha soundbar, so now I have all the ports filled up, but if in future I need to connect another optical device to the soundbar, then I would need to purchase a 3 or 4 in 1 out optical switcher which are readily available online.

The Yamaha soundbar is in a glossy piano black appearance which matches most modern tv's, it looks very nice indeed.

On the front of the soundbar are a series of lights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yamaha YAS101 Soundbar 20 Dec 2011
Like many folk who've bought a new flat screen TV, Samsung in our case, we were very disappointed with the sound quality. My first attempt to improve this was a low cost Philips HTC3020 5.1 surround system. Whilst an improvement this had several shortcomings. Wires trailing everywhere, the DVD player refused to work properly with TV, and speech was still not as clear as I wanted. The last point was the killer for me, as I have some hearing damage from industrial noise which makes speech hard to pick up against a noisy background.

As we didn't want the wires, and full surround sound was not a high priority I decided to look at sound bars as a possible solution. After trawling for reviews, and listening to demos I decided that the best price/performance compromise seemed to be the Yamaha YAS101. No-one seemed to be discounting these at all, so I thought I'd hang on until after Xmas to see if any appeared in sales. Then I spotted this at Hughes Direct discounted 20 and free postage, so thought let's get it before Xmas.

Hughes free delivery service included allowing me to select a delivery date. Their online ordering system doesn't however provide any despatch or tracking info, but the item arrived mid morning on the day selected, so no real complaints there. It would be good though if they did provide some delivery progress info as if you are out when delivery is attempted a re-delivery charge is levied, so you are forced to wait in even though you don't know for sure your goods have even been shipped. Hughes, please note if you read this.

The YAS101 was a doddle to set up, it just fitted under the TV on a free shelf, our TV has optical audio output so using the included optical cable it was up and running in 5 minutes.
