The glossy black Yamaha YAS-201 Sound Bar & Wireless Active Subwoofer System is designed to match most HDTVs. The system features a wireless active subwoofer with Advanced YST II technology, which reproduces rich bass with 100W of power output. The system also features a sleek, 60W sound bar with integrated digital amplifier. It can either be mounted on a wall or it can rest right in front of your flat-screen TV. The wireless subwoofer also allows for flexible placement, since it doesn't need to be right next to the sound bar. The YAS-201 uses AIR SURROUND XTREME technology to reproduce 7.1-channel surround sound.

With 7.1-channel surround, the YAS-201 is compatible with both Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound. Plus, it also supports UniVolume and Clear Voice technology. UniVolume keeps all programs and commercials at the same volume level, while Clear Voice enhances the clarity and volume of dialogue and narrations. You can also enjoy wireless streaming of audio from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or computer with the optional YIT-W12 adapter (sold separately). The YAS-201's standard connections include two digital optical audio inputs, which let you enjoy crisp and rich audio from your Blu-ray player or set-top box.

Sound Bar & Wireless Active Subwoofer Deliver 160W Output
This two-component system composed of a sound bar and subwoofer produces 160W of total power. Clear surround sound from the sound bar and deep bass from the subwoofer ensure high audio performance from TV and Blu-ray sources
Sound Bar
The sound bar houses a digital amp and two 2.1" cone speakers with large magnets to ensure sound clarity. Its structural design allows high-capacity cabinet volume for powerful and clear sound - even though the body is very slim
Wireless Active Subwoofer with Advanced YST II
This 6.5" subwoofer features a large magnet and a front-firing configuration. Its takes advantage of Yamaha's proprietary Advanced YST II and a Linear Port. The circuit board ensures stable current supply for prodigious bass output
Yamaha's exclusive AIR SURROUND XTREME reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with quality imaging and rich presence. You'll experience a realistic sound field with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action at the back
Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats
The YAS-201 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 & 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 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
Stylish Design & Ease of Use
Low enough to be placed neatly in front of a TV, the body has an elegantly curved front surface. Its glossy black finish matches flat-screen TVs and will add a stylish accent to your entertainment area
Convenient Positioning in Front of a TV Set
With a height of only 3.9", the sound bar can be easily positioned in front of a TV so it straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height can be adjusted
Sound Bar Can Also Be Hung on a Wall
If the TV is hanging on a wall, you can remove the stand and hang the sound bar on the wall as well
Wireless Active Subwoofer Allows Flexible Placement
The wireless subwoofer does not have to be connected to the sound bar, so setup and placement is faster and easier. Plus, the convenient subwoofer delivers powerful 100W bass sound
TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission
Even if the YAS-201 blocks the TV, the Remote Repeater on the rear of the sound bar transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected
Learning Function Allows Operation with TV Remote Control
The YAS-201 can "learn" the TV remote control operation, so you can use the TV remote control to easily turn the YAS-201 on and off and to adjust its volume
Wireless Streaming from iPod/iPhone/iPad & Mac/PC
The optional YIT-W12 Wireless Transmitter lets you enjoy music wirelessly from your iPod/iPhone/iPad or Mac/PC. The yAired technology developed by Yamaha provides uncompressed linear PCM transmission for clear, accurate sound output
Remote Control Included
The YAS-201 remote is easy to use. It lets you turn the power on and off, adjust the volume and do other basic operations, and it 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
Dolby Digital
With an improvement over Dolby Pro-Logic, Dolby Digital 5.1-channel home theater sound offers full frequency response in all channels (3 Hz - 20 kHz), discrete surround channels and a separate track for bass only - called the Low Frequency Effects channel
DTS Digital Surround
DTS digital surround was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a 6.1-channel digital sound track. This system produces 6-channel sound (technically: front left and right, center, surround left and right, and LFE 0.1 (subwoofer) channels for a total of 5.1 channels). It incorporates a DTS-ES decoder that enables 6.1-channel reproduction by adding the surround back channel to the existing 5.1-channel format
