Enjoy high-resolution, multi-channel sound with the black Yamaha MusicCast YAS-706 Virtual Surround Soundbar System. The soundbar is equipped with four tweeters, two midrange drivers, and two woofers that, along with the included external wireless subwoofer, provide up to 285W of total power. It is able to decode high-resolution audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

The Yamaha YAS-706 is well-equipped for connecting high-quality sources, with two 4K-ready HDMI inputs and an ARC- and CEC-enabled HDMI output. Digital coaxial and optical inputs are also onboard for interfacing other high-quality audio sources, and an RCA stereo input is available for other devices. The soundbar is wall mountable with the built-in keyholes.

MusicCast is designed to make it easy to bring music to every room in your home wirelessly, with playback controlled by an app. Start with a MusicCast soundbar, then add separately sold MusicCast wireless speakers or other MusicCast products in other rooms.
Designed for Dynamic, Enveloping Sound
Employing eight speaker drivers and two bass reflex ports, the YAS-706 is designed to deliver immersive and well-balanced sound. The included wireless subwoofer works with woofer drivers built into the soundbar to produce enhanced bass effects. Sound equalization is automatically adjusted for tabletop or wall mount orientation.
Three Amplifier Drive
The YAS-706 features separate amps for treble, midrange, and bass frequencies. This is designed to reduce interference, allowing the soundbar to produce clear sound.
AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Virtual Surround Sound
Yamaha's AIR SURROUND XTREME feature produces virtual surround sound with enhanced imaging and sound presence fashioned for a realistic sound field with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound effects from behind.
Five Sound Programs
The YAS-706 offers a choice of five sound programs that enhance different types of content to give you a greater sense of "being there." These sound programs are Music, Movie, TV Program, Sports, and Game.
Slim, Wall-Mountable Design
At less than 3" tall, the soundbar is designed to fit in front of a display without blocking the picture. It can also be placed on the shelf of TV furniture or mounted on a wall using the built-in keyholes.
Wireless Subwoofer for Flexible Placement
The wireless subwoofer eliminates the need to connect audio cables, so setup and placement are faster and easier.
Control at Your Fingertips
Use the MusicCast Controller app to operate the sound bar and change settings, select your source, and control music playback.
Access All Your Content
MusicCast allows you to access your digital music library, streaming music services, and Internet radio, as well as Bluetooth sources and external sources attached to your MusicCast soundbar, such as a Blu-ray Disc player or CD player.
Stream via Bluetooth or AirPlay
Listen to the music sources from your smartphone via a Bluetooth or AirPlay connection. Play music from music apps, radio apps, or video hosting services.
Bluetooth Output for Music Streaming
The YAS-706 is equipped with a Bluetooth output, allowing you to stream music from the soundbar to headphones for private listening or to other speakers.
Compressed Music Enhancer
The Compressed Music Enhancer is designed to restore frequency response lost during digital compression to help your music sound the way it should. It is optimized for any compressed content, for enhanced sound quality during wireless playback. The function can be switched on and off via the remote control.
HD Audio Decoding
The YAS-706 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray Disc players as well as from other digital sources.
HDMI Terminals with 4K Ultra HD Support
The YAS-706 has two HDMI input terminals and one HDMI output terminal, supports 4K/60p video signal pass-through, and is compatible with HDCP 2.2 digital copy protection.
Additional Features
  • Clear Voice is designed to make dialogue and narrations easier to hear.
  • The Learning and HDMI CEC features let you use your TV remote or set-top box remote to control volume.
  • The TV Remote Repeater allows commands from remote controls to reach your TV even if the TV's IR sensor is blocked by the bar.
  • Subwoofer output terminal allows for wired connection.
