Yamaha YAS-101

 

In smaller rooms, the Yamaha YAS-101 soundbar 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.

Performance and Conclusions I tested the system with the $500 Oppo BDP-103 , our current Editors' Choice for high-end Blu-ray players. Without a subwoofer, you're not going to get the room-shaking rumble of a proper home theater setup, even though the...

Yamaha's first budget sound bar delivers solid sound quality for TV and movies. The ; 's built-in subwoofer will appeal to minimalists who don't want a separate sub, plus it has an innovative feature that passes through remote signals if the TV's...

If you like tons of bass or really high volume, the YAS-101 isn't for you. It's also light on features, lacking HDMI inputs, analog audio inputs, and any kind of wireless audio streaming.

Yamaha's YAS-101 is a great budget sound bar, with an excellent design and a helpful feature for dealing with remote signals, although it's light on connectivity.

Yamaha YAS-101 Soundbar

 

Blame it on the ever-flattening flat-screen TV: The latest models barely stick out from the wall when mounted, or look so darn slender on a tabletop, people spend as much time looking at them from the side as from the front. But that thinness hasn't...

Yamaha Quality!

 

After using the speakers for a few weeks I think I am able to submit a review. The speaker is nice, sleek and shiny black. Thicker than I expected but with the built in sub-woofer, I figured it had to be. It sat neatly in front of my 52" Sharp LCD TV....

+ Sound was great, nice and clear + Speaker is nice, sleek and shiny black + Easy to set up and controls are intuitive + Included optical cable

- Bass was not deep and pronounced but there was bass

For money, this is better than most

 

pair with sub and you won't regret listening to most music material.

pleasant sounding

could use subwoofer but this model is better than many many other small speakers here

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Not bad and better than stock speakers.

 

You may want to consider pairing this with a subwoofer and then you will be good to go.

The sound bar is able to learn remote control codes so you don't have to have a separate remote. The pass through is a great feature, and this has a mounting setup so it can easily be put on a wall. There are lots of sound modes too.

For the money there are better sounding systems out there. The speakers are very loud, but without a separate sub the whole system sounds almost empty.

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.
