The Yamaha YHT-S401 Home Theater Package (Black) is a unique theater design with a subwoofer-integrated receiver and an extremely slim front speaker that fits in front of almost any TV.

The YHT-S401's sound bar stands at 2.1" (5.5 cm) high and fits in front of most 32 to 50" TVs without blocking the screen. In addition, the feet of the sound bar can be adjusted horizontally or vertically, or taken off entirely, for additional installation flexibility. By integrating the system's subwoofer into the receiver, Yamaha is able to offer users an easy connection to a full-featured receiver without adding a separate component and the ability to place the unit in a rack or on the floor in tight spaces.

The UniVolume technology maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. When watching TV while using UniVolume, the volume of commercials will not be louder than the program being viewed. The same is true when switching sources to watch a DVD or Blu-ray movie or to listen to music on CD. This is particularly helpful for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can startle other viewers.

With 7-channel discrete inputs, AM/FM tuner and connectivity to virtually any A/V source, your entertainment choices are endless with Yamaha's YHT-S401.

Soundbar with Center Speaker Provides Clear Dialogue and an Expansive Soundfield
The YHT-S401 consists of a soundbar and receiver/subwoofer, which you can position conveniently near the TV. The soundbar has three speakers including a center speaker for clear dialogue from movies and TV programs. Yamaha's rich, natural sound and expansive surround fields will greatly enhance the enjoyment of all your media sources
2.1" (5.5 cm) Full Range Speakers Delivers Crisp Richly Detailed Sound
The 2.1" (5.5 cm) full range speakers use extra-large voice coils to provide fast sound attack, wide dynamic range and highly detailed sound. You'll enjoy impressive surround sound quality from all your audio and video sources
Oval Center Speaker Ensures Natural Sound Reproduction with Low Listening Fatigue
The oval center speaker has a paper cone with excellent vibration mode characteristics, so unnecessary vibrations do not affect sound quality. Dialogue and vocals sound exceptionally clear and natural
Saran Net Grille Enhances Sound Definition and Vocal Clarity
The grill 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
Powerful Subwoofer Outputs Robust Bass with a Sharp Kick
Powered by a 100W built-in digital amp, the subwoofer has a voice coil optimally positioned for superior response. It delivers clear, powerful bass with a sharp kick for movie sound effects and music
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 system. 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
Full HD Audio Compatibility
The YHT-S401 decodes HD audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray disc players, as well as from all other digital sources
Digital USB Connection for iPod/iPhone
A USB terminal makes it quick and easy to plug in an iPod or iPhone. The digital signal from the iPod/iPhone is transmitted directly, noise interference is minimized and sound quality is much better
Extended Stereo
Yamaha uses advanced sound processing to extend the stereo sound field (wider sound imaging) so you have more choice of optimum listening positions
Headphone Jack for Multi-Channel Sound
The headphone jack lets you plug in your own headphones and enjoy virtual 7.1-channel sound in private
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
Music Enhancer Makes Compressed Audio Sound Fresh
When music is encoded in a digital compressed format such as MP3, frequency response suffers in the high and low ranges. Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms, enabling faithful reproduction of the original music, for excellent sound quality
Slim, Low-Profile Soundbar Fits Neatly in Front of the TV
The soundbar is low profile and height adjustable, for convenient positioning in front of most TVs so it straddles the TV stand
Height is Adjustable in Five Steps to Match the TV
The legs allow height adjustment in five steps for optimum positioning in front of the TV
Removable Legs, Wall Mounting Possible
For even greater positioning versatility, the legs can be removed. The unit can be wall mounted via the keyholes
Subwoofer-Integrated Receiver with Flexible Placement
Yamaha was able to build a subwoofer into the surprisingly slim receiver, eliminating an extra unit (and cables) and allowing convenient placement in a rack or on the floor. What's more, it can be placed either vertically or horizontally
HDMI (3 In/1 Out) Supports 1080p Resolution, 3D Video and ARC
Three HDMI terminals offer convenient one-cable connection of various HD digital sources. HDMI also includes 3D protocols for enjoying 3D video sources. ARC (Audio Return Channel) means that you do not need an extra optical cable to hear the sound from the TV
HDMI CEC Functionality
When connected to a CEC-compatible TV, such as a Panasonic VIERA Link TV, the YHT-S401 will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote unit to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components
Simple to Operate Remote Control Supplied
The 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
Stylish Design Achieves Both Visual Beauty and Ease of Use
Low enough to be placed neatly in front of a TV, the soundbar also has a beautiful finish. It will add a stylish accent to your entertainment area
Glossy Black Finish Matches Flat-Screen TVs
The front and top of the front speaker and subwoofer front panel have a rich, glossy black finish that harmonizes beautifully with the newest thin TVs, for a stylishly compact home theater system
Other Notable Features
Six surround mode (movie, music, sports, game, TV program, and standard)
5.1-channel system expandability
Built-in FM tuner
This mode is available only when surround speakers are connected
