Yamaha YHT-S401 Sound Bar - A Cut Above the Rest

 

A step up from older models, the Yamaha YHT-S401 is one of the latest mid-level sound bar offerings in the market. Can it deliver on features, design, performance and value to convince us it is a worthy successor to the excellent YHT-S400?

Excellent performance - neutral/natural tone ; 4 HDMI ports provided ; Option to add extra surround speakers

No wireless capabilities ; Receiver unit is heavy and a bit bulky ; Lacks cinema feel when playing movies

With regards to audio technology, the sound bar’s horizontal speakers boasts of Air Surround Xtreme and Music Enhancer - both of which are proprietary sound enhancements by Yamaha. The former is intended to reproduce 7.1-channel surround sound with...

Yamaha YHT-S401 review

 

The YHT-S401 seemingly has a lot going for it, including Yamaha's rich heritage in soundbars and a comprehensive specification that makes a mockery of the similarly-priced Bose Solo. The YHT-S401 boasts four HDMI sockets, a headphone jack, FM aerial...

Yamaha YHT-S401 review

 

Yamaha has a strong tradition in soundbars, but this isn't its finest by a long stretch

Weighty bass ; lots of control and precision ; good build

Thin vocals ; compressed treble ; not wholly intuitive to use

Quality build and controlled bass, but this is not Yamaha’s best by a long stretch

Very easy to set up. Great sound especially the clear voice. Subwoofer does not have the deep bass sound of my old Boston Acoustics Subwoofer had, but it is not bad. System way way better than TV speakers and pretty close to my 5.1 surround system I...

Great sound, looks great, questionable manufacturing quality...

 

I bought this unit to improve quality of poor sounding T.V. and as a sound system for music. It does both of these things very well. Calling it surround sound without adding extra speakers is a bit of a stretch but the quality of sound is sensational...

Does the job very well

 

I reviewed this product a couple of months ago when I first bought it. I had lots of problems getting it to work properly at first and ended up being given a replacement receiver by Harvey Norman, Warrawong. Had problems again and decided that maybe I...

Vast improvement in frequency range (much more bass) and clarity.

Cost almost as much as the TV but that's probably because TV's are being made more cheaply nowadays.
