Stylish Design

With gently curved lines and a piano black finish, the YAS-103 blends harmoniously with your TV and decor. Mount it to a wall using the included template and commercially-available hardware or simply place it on your TV stand. The included feet can straddle the base of your TV or can be removed for a lower-profile.


Dual Built-in Subwoofers for Deep, Rich Bass

No need for a separate subwoofer unit! The YAS-103 is equipped with two full-range drivers on the front and two down-firing subwoofers integrated discreetly into the bottom of the bar. Together with Yamaha’s original Advanced Bass Extension Processing (surround mode only) the bar delivers a surprising abundance of bass for the size.


Bass Reflex Port Contributes to Deeper, Richer Bass

The subwoofer drivers, employing large magnets and large-diameter voice coils, work in combination with the large-volume cabinet of the sound bar and bass reflex ports to deliver outstanding bass response. The bass reflex ports have a straight shape and proper length, as well as ducts shaped like trumpet bells, which reduces wind noise for better sound clarity.


Bluetooth® Wireless Music Streaming from Your Smartphone or Tablet


Fill your home with music the quick and easy way! Stream music from Bluetooth-compatible smartphones, tablets and computers. The YAS-103 can also be set in Bluetooth standby mode, enabling the bar’s power to turn on or off automatically for energy-saving convenience.


Free Control App for Easy Operation

The YAS-103 is compatible with a Home Theater Control App (HT Controller), available for free download for Apple® iOS and Android™ devices. The app makes it easy to control the sound bar via a Bluetooth connection, including input selections, surround modes and other settings.


Easy Set Up with a Single-Cable Connection


Connect to your large-screen TV with a single digital optical cable - included in the box.


AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Powerful Surround Sound

Some sound bars only deliver stereo sound, while others deliver virtual surround sound with inaccurate imaging. The YAS-103 employs AIR SURROUND XTREME, a Yamaha-exclusive virtual surround technology that reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with 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 dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action at the back.


Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats

The YAS-103 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.


TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission


Even if the YAS-103 blocks the TV’s remote control signal, the TV Remote Repeater on the back transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected.


Use Your TV Remote


The YAS-103 offers a learning feature that allows you to turn the sound bar on/off and control its volume level using your TV’s remote control — a great way to reduce the number of remote controls on your coffee table!


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. It can be switched on and off.

  • Audio delay control (lip-sync) adjusts the timing of the picture and dialogue
  • Analog input (dual RCA) on the back panel allow the connection of additional audio sources

Dolby® Digital


The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby® Pro Logic® in that it offers: 1.) Full frequency response in all channels (3Hz - 20kHz), 2.) discrete surround channels, and 3.) a separate track for bass, only, called the Low-Frequency Effects channel.


DTS Digital Surround™


DTS Digital Surround™ was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a 6.1 channel digital sound track and is now rapidly gaining popularity in movie theaters around the world. DTS, Inc. has developed a home theater system so that you can enjoy the depth of sound and natural spatial representation of DTS Digital Surround™ in your home. This system produces practically distortion-free 6 channel sound (technically, front left and right, center, surround left and right and LFE 0.1 (subwoofer) channels for a total of 5.1 channels). This unit incorporates a DTS-ES decoder that enables 6.1-channel reproduction by adding the surround back channel to the existing 5.1 channel format.




AIR SURROUND XTREME employs a virtual 7.1-channel technology that generates surround and surround back sound images without using dedicated surround speakers. The result is accurate sound directionality while maintaining an immersive surround sound envelopment. Hear clear dialogue from the front while distinctly separate surround effects move smoothly throughout the entire sound field.




UniVolume™ is a Yamaha-developed technology that maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. For instance, 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 Disc™ movie or to listen to music on a CD. This is particularly helpful for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can disturb others in the house or apartment building.

5 out of 5 eggsworth it

Pros: Sounds better than my 7.2 surround sound which is maybe a con as it showed me how bad my expensive setup was. I wouldn't mind selling everything and getting one of these. The bass at highest setting sounds good. Two 3.5s do pretty well.

Cons: Don't buy for loud music. But for movies and TV, it's amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsGorgeous sound and features at an amazing price

Pros: •For the price, awesome sound quality that is way better than even more expensive competitors
•Gorgeous design
•Feature packed - includes bluetooth
•Comes with digital and analog sound inputs

Cons: Audio quality over bluetooth a bit weak as it's compressed, but likely true for all bluetooth streaming devices

Other Thoughts: I was skeptical of the sound quality when I ordered this item, but having owned several yamaha sound and instrument equipment in the past, I knew it couldn't be that bad. Upon receiving it, I was initially disappointed with the sound, but realized that it may have been because I was streaming over bluetooth. Thus, I got some RCA cables, and was completely wowed by the sound as a result. The sound is clean and balanced. The bass is also impressive for a unit of this size. I was initially going to get a Bose Wave as I wanted a system to listen to music as much as to watch movies, but I am certain I made the right choice. The sound on this thing beats the Bose Wave and comes at a much cheaper price. Bravo Yamaha!
