|The Yamaha YHT-S401 Home Theater Package (Black) is a unique theater design with a subwoofer-integrated receiver and an extremely slim front speaker that fits in front of almost any TV. |
The YHT-S401's sound bar stands at 2.1" (5.5 cm) high and fits in front of most 32 to 50" TVs without blocking the screen. In addition, the feet of the sound bar can be adjusted horizontally or vertically, or taken off entirely, for additional installation flexibility. By integrating the system's subwoofer into the receiver, Yamaha is able to offer users an easy connection to a full-featured receiver without adding a separate component and the ability to place the unit in a rack or on the floor in tight spaces.
The UniVolume technology maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. When watching TV while using UniVolume, the volume of commercials will not be louder than the program being viewed. The same is true when switching sources to watch a DVD or Blu-ray movie or to listen to music on CD. This is particularly helpful for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can startle other viewers.
With 7-channel discrete inputs, AM/FM tuner and connectivity to virtually any A/V source, your entertainment choices are endless with Yamaha's YHT-S401.
Very easy to set up. Great sound especially the clear voice. Subwoofer does not have the deep bass sound of my old Boston Acoustics Subwoofer had, but it is not bad. System way way better than TV speakers and pretty close to my 5.1 surround system I had. I did continue to use my rear speakers from my old system set up and love this option with this Yamaha soundbar.
Arrived packaged well inside shipping box. Item is as described - excellent depth of sound!! Hard to believe so much clear deep sound from such a lightweight sound bar. RF repeater doesn't work well and can't be positioned where needed, but having adjustable legs on the bar was a simple fix - a great feature!
