Yamaha YAS-201 Sound Bar System - Product of the Week

By December 14, 2012

Follow me on:

Sound bars are everywhere these days, as they provide an easy-to-setup option to provide better sound for TV viewing without a lot of speakers. One sound bar to consider is the newly available Yamaha YAS-201. The YAS-201 combines a two-channel main unit that incorporates Yamaha's Air Surround Extreme technology, with a compact wireless subwoofer.

The YAS-201 sound bar section is 35-inches wide, which visually matches well with TV screen sizes from 32 to 42 inches, and contains two compact 2-1/8 inch speakers. Air Surround Extreme creates a wide sound field in smaller rooms without the need for addtional speakers.

The companion wireless subwoofer features a 6-1/2 inch driver with an additional port for extended low frequency repsonse. For ease-of-use, the system comes with its own learning remote control.

The sound bar provides two digital optical inputs for accessing audio from source devices, such as DVD, Blu-ray Disc player, or cable/satellite box, or the digital optical output of an HDTV. No analog audio inputs are provided.

If you are looking for a sound bar solution that can work in smaller spaces and is easy to set up and use, check out the Yamaha YAS-201.

Most disappointed purchase of the year.
For the price I expected a deeper sound with more robust performance,
the subwoofer and ba is set at Max. TV is 47″ Visio, my prevous soundbar was a refurbished Visio also
Thought I would get superior sound from Yamaha. I regret this purchase, the vendor was told this and had nothing to offer/say…
