Overall I am satisfied with the sound, although the bass sound is not deep enough.

Product Overview

It's not just sound, it's beautiful design.

The YAS-101 is a slim, low-profile Sound Bar 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.

Visually Intriguing Speaker
The large speaker units are designed with a focus on simplicity and elegance. As a speaker meant to be visually appreciated, doesn’t it convey the impression of Yamaha fine sound quality?

The "Piano Black Finish" that Yamaha Takes Pride In
Glossy and beautiful, to Yamaha, piano black is a very special color. The elegance and sophistication of the YAS-101 emanate from its polished black surface, not giving a feeling of its size and perfectly harmonizing with any interior.

Curved Surface Wafts Out Surround Sound
The front is beautifully designed with a gentle curve. This stylish one-bar speaker gives the impression of smoothly wafting out the surround sound to all parts of the room.

Integrated System with Dual Front Speakers and Subwoofer
The YAS-101 soundbar combines two 2½" cone speakers with a dual-driver (3" 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 Powerfully Reproduces Bass Sounds
The dual-driver subwoofer employs large magnets and large-diameter voice coils to realize dynamic and robust bass sound reproduction. This 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.
AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Powerful Surround Sound
Reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with high quality, excellent imaging and rich presence, far superior to that of any other soundbar
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
Compatible with popular surround sound formats (e.g., Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround), so you get the full effect of multichannel movie sound
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
Made possible by Yamaha-developed technology, UniVolume maintains consistent volume level among different channels, programs, commercials and input sources
Feature may 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
Subwoofer Out jack lets you connect an additional subwoofer to enjoy even more powerful bass sound
Slim, Low-Profile, One-Body Design Allows Positioning in Front of a TV
At only 4¼" high, the YAS-101 may be easily positioned in front of a TV so the soundbar straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height may be adjusted. With its built-in speakers and subwoofers, it fits more easily into available space than separate components.
May 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.
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 of the sound bar 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.
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 "piano black" finish that harmonizes beautifully with the newest thin TVs, for a stylishly compact home theater system.
