    Yamaha YAS-101, December 16, 2011

    I just recently purchased the sony kdl55hx820 and needed a sound bar to make up for the lackluster sound produced by flat screens in general. My main requirements were: Full sound, aesthetically pleasing and smaller form factor since I haven’t wall mounted my tv just yet.

    Since I wanted some bass I was looking at systems with a sub and decided the finalists for me were:
    Sony HT-CT150
    Sony HTCT550W
    Panasonic SC-HTB520
    Yamaha YAS-101

    Sony HT-CT150- Although a nice system I eliminated it because the sub was not wireless and you needed a clear sight line to it because the ir sensor is at the top of it, which makes hiding the sub more difficult.

    Sony HTCT550W- A superb system really. Also provides hdmi switching at a very reasonable price. The only thing I did not like was the extra piece of equipment (receiver unit) that I would have to stick into my tv stand and that the main speakerbar has no frills physically. uses ARC meaning, if your tv is capable, you can use a single hdmi cable for audio&video + it should turn unit on and off.

    Panasonic SC-HTB520- a very underrated system and by far the most beautiful of the units reviewed…main bar is gorgeous, plus thin. Issue for me was that the bar was slightly taller and I was worried it would block the ir signal for the tv. Also arc compatible

    which brings me to the yas-101

    Yamaha YAS-101- listened to it in a store and it sounded terrible. no bass whatsoever but I decided to give it a try anyway. main reasons:
    1. i knew you can adjust the sub woofer level
    2. has the ir relay so even if it blocks the sight line of the tv it passes the signal on
    3. can learn power + vol + and – of your tv remote.
    4. very good looking unit, a bit deep but still gorgeous
    5. has the sub built in

    After looking at the different units in stores and such I said If the yamaha sounds halfway decent and I don’t have extra equipment (receiver, sub) then it will be worth it. I know that you will be giving up some punch with this unit since it’s a small sub built in but that was ok for me. I have a smaller living room and was willing to sacrifice punch for less wires and equipment.

    TOOK THE UNIT HOME
    When I took it out of the box i was impressed with the piano black finish of the unit, really beautiful although of course will be a fingerprint magnet (but who will touch it?). I haven’t wall mounted my tv yet so I placed the bar in front of the tv. It was a bit too high with the legs so I removed them and it was perfect height in front of my Sony KDL55HX820 which has a low profile. (the design of the unit, not completely flat, allows it to sit right over typical tv stands.)

    Wiring
    My tv outputs 5.1 so I just connected optical from the tv to the soundbar and plugged in the soundbar to power and was off and running.

    Remote
    It learned the power plus vol +- of my fios remote in about 2 minutes.

    Sound quality
    Really impressed. Although I had to pretty much max out the sub level it hits pretty well considering I did not have to get a separate sub nor any extra equipment. Sound is full and you do feel some rumble. Voices are clear, mids beautiful and lows pretty impressive. Again I have a smaller space so I’m sure thats why the bass sounds so good.

    Now that it’s programmed- turn on the tv, unit goes on. Turn off the tv, unit goes off. Success!
    only thing that bothers me a bit is the fact that since I have tv on external speakers, when I hit vol+- on the tv a little box comes up for a few seconds that says tv vol fixed. Not a big deal but just putting it out there

    If you have a larger space this probably isn’t for you, if you are expecting real legit 7.1- this isn’t for you.
    If you want to improve the sound coming from your flat screen and 1. don’t want to break the bank and 2. dont want extra equipment or wires- I confidently say this is the unit for you.

    UPDATE: 5/17/12: Just something to note….the bar blocks my 3d sensor since the glasses need a clear view of the sensor in order to process the 3d image I can’t watch in 3d until I mount my tv a few inches higher- yup thats right, I still haven’t mounted my tv. :)

    Other than that the bar is fine, sound quality hasn’t changed it’s holding up just fine.

    First, my motivation for taking the time to write a review is that these Amazon product reviews have helped me so much in the past that I wanted to pay some of that back.

    More to the point, Yes, definitely buy this Yamaha Sound Bar if your needs are similar to mine.

    I love this thing because my new 46Inch LED Flat Screen had a great picture but really dull sound and I wanted to add better sound without a complicated set of gear, and this Yamaha Sound Bar immediately gave me bright clear quality sound in a simple one piece component that looks high end and fits nicely in front of my TV. You don’t notice it.

    I gave it a full five stars because it worked great right out of the box, exceeded my expectations and I really got it set up within in 20 minutes, really.

    When I turned it on I sat there with a big smile on my face because of the quality sound as I channel surfed and played with the sound settings, how many times does that happen with a new piece of gear?

    Only two wires to deal with, the power cord to plug in and it came with the other one, an optical cable, so no running out to figure out what cable or cables to buy. You just plug in the optical cable to the audio out on the TV and into the back of the Yamaha.

    When you slide it out of the box, be careful grabbing it, as along the bottom of the unit two of the internal speaker compartments are cloth covered and you could accidentally poke your fingers through before you get it fully out of the box, unwrapped and can see them.

    Even though it sits in front of the base of my TV; it didn’t block my TV remote’s signals, as it has a setting to pass through and relay your remotes signal out of its back side. You can teach this Yamaha Sound Bar to respond to your TV’s remote to turn the Yamaha on and off and adjust the volume, I haven’t done that yet.

    The Voice Clear feature is worth it alone, no matter if my home’s noisy A/C is on or if there is a lot of back ground noise in what I am watching; it makes dialog jump out to be clear and understandable. Now I can now walk out of the room and not miss what’s being said on the TV Show.

    Also what I truly enjoy is that it automatically keeps the volume from increasing when the commercials come on.

    The Surround Sound feature is excellent and full sounding; it makes you feel like the characters and action are in the room with you. The Stereo setting is also is excellent, music on it sounds great with depth and warmth like on my high end audio car system.

    Remote is simple, settings and set up easy to use and the manual covered it all briefly but with enough to be user friendly for a normal person.

    I feel like I got good value for what I paid.

    Surprisingly rich sound, November 10, 2011
    By 
    Tbear (Pittsburgh, PA) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Got this to augment the sound coming from our 52″ LCD TV, which has meager speakers. HD set top box and Blu-ray player connected to the Yamaha with optical toslink cables. For action movies the sound has good punch with the bass remaining tight and manages to fill all corners of a spacious open floor plan living room-kiitchen area. Shows with dialogue emphasis get the “voice” option and this works very well. Now, understand that this will not sound as good as a true home theater surround system consisting of a receiver/amplifier, 5 or 7 speakers and a subwoofer; but for a simple, elegant setup, the Yamaha performs admirably. Highly recommended.
