YAS-201 Surround Sound System Overview
Superior Surround Sound from TV and Blu-Ray Sources
Slim soundbar and wireless active subwoofer system provides expansive, high quality surround sound and very flexible positioning. This two-component system composed of a sound bar and subwoofer produces 160W of total power. Clear, realistic, all-enveloping surround sound from the sound bar and deep bass from the subwoofer ensure high audio performance from TV and Blu-ray sources.
Expansive and Clear Surround Sound
The sound bar houses a digital amp and two 2?" (5.5cm) cone speakers with large magnets to ensure high sound clarity. Its superb structural design allows high capacity cabinet volume for very powerful and clear sound, even though the body is very slim.
Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats
The YAS-201 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.
Stylish Design Achieves Both Visual Beauty and Ease of Use
Low enough to be placed neatly in front of a TV, the body has an elegantly curved front surface. Its glossy black finish matches flat-screen TVs and will add a stylish accent to your entertainment area. With a height of only 3?" (9.8cm), the sound bar can be easily positioned in front of a TV so it straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height can be adjusted. If the TV is hanging on a wall, you can remove the stand and hang the sound bar on the wall as well. The wireless subwoofer does not have to be connected to the sound bar, so setup and placement is faster and easier. This is a convenient subwoofer that delivers powerful, high-quality bass sound.
Simple to Operate Remote Control Supplied
The YAS-201 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.
