Yamaha YAS-152 review


This year at CEDIA 2013, we got the chance to preview some of the fresh new entries in Yamaha's home theater line-up, including its value-packed YAS-152 sound bar (available at $350). An upgrade from the 101, the 152 expands its dimensions to stretch...

Powerful bass response without a separate subwoofer ; Good feature set ; Relatively affordable

Anemic upper register ; Muffled midrange ; Poor detail ; Narrow soundstage

The YAS-152 is big on bombastic bass, but came up short on clarity and detail.

A super-wide soundbar for 55-inch TVs and above

Terrific bass performance without separate sub ; Classy design ; Easy to setup and use

Sound lacks detail and openness ; No HDMI inputs ; Basic front panel LEDs

The YAS-152 will also decode Dolby Digital and DTS bitstreams fed into the optical inputs. The on-board amplifier feeds 30W to each speaker and 60W to the woofers.

Yamaha YAS-152


Yamaha delivers a one-box soundbar solution for 55-inch-and-larger HDTVs with solid connectivity options, but sound quality suffers in the bargain.

Inside the enclosure are two 2.5-inch full-range cones firing forward, as mentioned above, and two 3.5-inch, downward-firing subwoofer drivers. A three-channel amplifier delivers 30 watts to each full-range driver, and 60 watts to the subwoofer.
