Yamaha YAS-101 review

 

Editors' note: The rating on this product has been lowered because of changes in the competitive marketplace. The review has not otherwise been modified.

Yamaha's first budget sound bar delivers solid sound quality for TV and movies. The Yamaha YAS-101 's built-in subwoofer will appeal to minimalists who don't want a separate sub, plus it has an innovative feature that passes through remote signals if...

If you like tons of bass or really high volume, the YAS-101 isn't for you. It's also light on features, lacking HDMI inputs, analog audio inputs, and any kind of wireless audio streaming.

Yamaha's YAS-101 is a great budget sound bar, with an excellent design and a helpful feature for dealing with remote signals, although it's light on connectivity.

Yamaha YAS-101

 

In smaller rooms, the Yamaha YAS-101 soundbar delivers impressive value for the dollar. It sounds like a more expensive system, and since there's no subwoofer, it can fit into just about any decor when placed underneath an HDTV.

Smooth, natural sound. Powerful bass even without a subwoofer. Stylish design.

Doesn't reach the home theater-like levels a system with a discrete subwoofer does. Does not support Bluetooth streaming. No HDMI or stereo RCA inputs.

Performance and Conclusions I tested the system with the $500 Oppo BDP-103 , our current Editors' Choice for high-end Blu-ray players. Without a subwoofer, you're not going to get the room-shaking rumble of a proper home theater setup, even though the...

Yamaha YAS-101 Soundbar

 

Blame it on the ever-flattening flat-screen TV: The latest models barely stick out from the wall when mounted, or look so darn slender on a tabletop, people spend as much time looking at them from the side as from the front. But that thinness hasn't...
