The YAS-101 combines two 6.5 cm [2-1/2”] cone speakers with a dual-driver (7.5 cm [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
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 soundbar. You’ll experience an 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
The YAS-101 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 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)
This technology adjusts the timing of the picture and dialogue.
Jack for an Extra Subwoofer
The 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
With a height of only 10.7 cm (4-1/4”), the YAS-101 can be easily positioned in front of a TV so it 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 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 black finish that harmonizes beautifully with the newest thin TVs, for a stylishly compact home theater system.
