Yamaha YAS-101

 

In smaller rooms, the Yamaha YAS-101 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

Yamaha's YAS-101 soundbar ($299.95 list) delivers plenty of punch for a single-piece home theater audio system. It saves space by including the subwoofer—really, a bass module, as you're not going to get subterranean frequencies out of a thin...

Yamaha YAS-101 Soundbar Review

 

Since the advent of Plasma and LCD, big screen TVs can fit just about any where you stick it. However, it's an entirely different story when it comes to home theater systems. They generally require more [...]

Good bass response considering its size ; Well built with a black glossy piano finish that gives it a high perceived value ; Easy to setup and use

No detectable surround sound ; Subwoofer must be cranked to 100% to hear it

Yamaha YAS-101

 

Does this sleek Yamaha sound bar really mimic 7.1 channels of simulated surround sound? How does such a small sound bar provide such big sound? Check out our sound bar reviews.

The sleek and beautifully styled Yamaha YAS-101 sound bar produces good, clean sound

The Yamaha YAS-101 lacks HDMI and RCA inputs. You don't have the option to stream music wirelessly to the sound bar

Despite providing clear and distinct dialogue, the lack of inputs and weak bass prevent the YAS-101 from ranking higher among its competition.

High Cost

 

Doesn't have the Bass for all of the hype. It is a sound bar after all and I didn't expect miracles but I agree with most other reviews that it is priced about $75.00 over its actual worth.

Not worth the money

 

Sound quality is so-so, but absolutely not worth the money. Some functions did not work as claimed. Need to return it.

Big sound, Little box, Good deal

 

After finally deciding that I did not want to spend the extra bucks on the JBL Soundbar that costs about $200 more, I grabbed up this Yamaha here during a promo. Glad I did. Big sound with good bass. However, I have added a Yamaha 216 sub, which can...

Excellent Clear Voice technology ; Quality build and materials ; Unique, curving look ; Simple inputs and controls ; Uncluttered remote

Few inputs ; Bass is pretty good, but you may want more
