Front Surround System


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 and beautiful piano black finish.
Integrated System with Dual Front Speakers and Subwoofer
The YAS-101 sound bar combines two 2-1/2in. cone speakers with a dual-driver (3in. 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 special effects sound much more realistic.
Bass Reflex Port Creates 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 grill 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
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 sound bar. You'll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field, with clear dialog in the front and dynamic sound action at the back and sides.
Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats
The YAS-101 sound bar 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.
Clear Voice Makes Dialog and Narration Easy to Hear
Clear Voice raises the level of dialog 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. It can be switched on and off.
Audio Delay Control (Lip-Sync)
This technology adjusts the timing of the picture and dialog.
Jack for an Extra Subwoofer
The subwoofer output jack lets you connect an additional subwoofer to enjoy even more powerful bass sound.
Slim, Low-Profile, One-Body Design for Positioning in Front of a TV
With a height of only 4-1/4in., the YAS-101 can be easily positioned in front of a TV so the sound bar 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.
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
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 thin TVs for a stylishly compact home theater system.

1 out of 5 eggsaudio lag

Pros: very simple setup

Cons: quality was not $250 worth of high quality. Mt LG TV quality was equal.

Unable to adjust for audio delay, the adjustment provided was insufficient to compensate for the voice lag. DVD did not lag, TV did.
I chose to take the $50 hit for returning it rather than live with it.
Even the UPS guy said he returned hi for the same reason.

Other Thoughts: Newegg return procedure was painless (other than the $50 price to send it back)

2 out of 5 eggsNothing special

Pros: The only pro is its design - it's a bar. That's the only thing I like about it.

Cons: The problem with this bar is that it is absolutely nothing special. When you pay $200 for a piece of equipment, you expect a certain improvement, but with this bar it was almost non-existent. I am not a speaker snob or anything, but I think it's ridiculous that it shows an original price of $300. For what? Without exaggeration, you will be at least 10 times happier with a $100 5.1 logitech set. Shame on Yamaha for putting this product on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound at a Reasonable Price!

Pros: Great sound and noticeable bass even without a dedicated subwoofer. Quality product from Yamaha, did not disappoint. I have it installed in a large room (20' by 15'), and the sound bar still fills it even on moderate volume levels.

Cons: Wall mounting options are not well-documented.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my parents to compliment their new TV, and they couldn't be happier with it's performance. Thanks to Newegg for offering it $100 cheaper than suggested.

NOTE: When I plugged this into the TV, the cable box switched its audio mode for some reason, so it took me a few minutes without sound to figure it out what had happened.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound

Pros: Easy to set up. Sleek and modern look makes it so it isn't an eye sore. Blends in well with the TV. Built in Sub woofer. Overall sound quality is awesome.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I picked up this item a few days ago, after reading the great reviews and noticing it was $100 off. It was one of the best technology related decisions I have ever made, and I won't go back to regular TV speakers. I never noticed how bad of a sound quality my TV is, until I plugged this bad boy in. I finally don't have to have the subtitles on because I can understand what the people in the shows/movies are saying, all thanks to this sound bar. I highly recommend grabbing this while it's $100 off, or even when it isn't on sale. The built in sub woofer is definitely good enough for the average TV/Movie viewer, but it's nice that the product comes with the option to plug in a bigger sub. All in all, 10/10. Must have item for your TV/Entertainment set up. It sits right in front of my TV and blends in exceptionally well. Get it, get it, get it!!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Sound

Pros: I have had this for almost a year now and could not be happier, I am considering buying another one for the living room. Clean crisp sound, huge improvement over tv sound.vvSmall footstep, I mounted this under my wall mounted tv and looks awesome. I opted to add a 10" powered subwoofer to the subwoofer port and sounds like a theater in the bedroom. Dual fiber optic ports is perfect for connecting bluray and tv.

Cons: No cons that I can think of other than the remote is small and plain looking.

4 out of 5 eggsBasic overview

Pros: Sounds way better than my tv speakers (not hard to do)
It looks nice
It takes up very little room considering the sub is integrated into the soundbar.
The bass sounds pretty good; the bass is not muddy
Voices on movies with decent quality sound are very clear.
It has a seperate volume for the bass
You can program your basic tv remote to perform power on/off and volume +/- (and my tv is a TCL which is not a super popular brand as far as I know)

Cons: Bass doesn't get that loud if you like to have a crazy amount of bass. (although to me it is great for movies and such and I leave it about half way up.)
You can't make it sit completely flat because it has two "legs" although they can be taken off, there are still two little legs underneath those.
I personally can't tell a big difference between the stereo and "surround" settings that it has. That would be asking a bit much considering that it is a 2.1 sound bar, but I really don't know what that feature is for.

Other Thoughts: It is an excellent upgrade from basic tv speakers. If you are looking for something to make speech more audible during movies or tv shows then this is an excellent purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Soundbar!

Pros: For the price of this soundbar, it's definitely worth it.

Sounds great, looks great, works great.

I was a first time buyer into the soundbar technology and it worked out well with this purchase.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Using the digital optical cable definitely works best. If your TV has the output for it definitely use it as it sounds good and will let you use the soundbar for any devices hooked up to the TV (Blu-ray player, gaming system, etc.). The remote is pretty small, so try not to lose it haha.
