From the makers of the original soundbar, the Yamaha YAS101 is their best value to date.


Consisting of a slim sound bar with integral subwoofer, the YAS101 contains everything you need for effective sound enhancement within just one unit. At the heart of this super-slim Soundbar is AIR SURROUND XTREME. Using 24kHz HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function) technology it manages to clearly separate sounds from in front of you to those that are supposed to come from the sides or rear - without the need for extra speakers! The effects are so realistic you'll find it hard to believe all the sound is coming from the front speaker bar. Added to this is Yamaha's Extended Stereo which gives enhanced stereo sound staging, once again making the sound more true to life and believable.


In addition to offering a more spacious sound, the YAS101 has excellent bass depth, too. With a dual-driver subwoofer built-in and bass reflex cabinet, the Yamaha YAS101 provides a solid bass response that's a league above just about any TV speaker system. Should you require even more bass, then a subwoofer output is on hand to connect your choice of sub.


With some soundtracks, especially where there's a lot happening, it can be hard to hear what's being said. Thanks to the Yamaha's Clear Voice feature it's now easy to follow dialogue, exactly as it's spoken. Furthermore, UniVolume keeps programmes and commercials at the same volume level - making watching commercial TV a great deal less irritating!


Being so slim and attractive, the YAS101 sits easily in front of or just below your TV. The smart gloss black finish has been designed to match the vast majority of TVs so won't look at all out of place. Should you wish, you can even wall mount the speaker just above or below your TV.

A massive improvement on the average TV sound, the Yamaha YAS101 gives you the chance to upgrade with style.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Surprisingly good soundbar I bought this soundbar to improve the audio from my TV. Even so, I hadn't expected the difference to be so dramatic, especially in the lower frequencies. 15 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Best soundbar under ú200 Looked at various soundbars for over a year for my slim LED TV. Bought one from another shop but wasn't suitable. Had all the connections but sound was not great. Looked at reviews again and found this one. It's last years model, or year before but still excellent. Originally ú250, saw it at Sainsbury's cheaper and Richer Sounds beat the price! Only a small stock left as its an old model but was in stock at local shop and picked it up that afternoon. Very helpful staff. Many thanks for excellent product. Bass is brilliant and has 3 digital inputs! Bonus. 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent Soundbar. Excellent Service. I am no audiophile, but this Yas101 is just perfect for me. The sound is much better than the speakerson my TV. I would recommend this to anyone looking for better TV audio. It's replacement needs to be special to better this product. As for the service from Richer Sounds, well this was just perfect, very helpful and courteous staff. Delivery was quick and exactly on time as per email and text message. It is so good when things go so well. THANK YOU! Richer Sounds, you have made me very happy. 09 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Transforms a TV without too much outlay A well designed item which sounds good and natural in tone. A little old fashioned if you wanted lots of inputs for iPods and other digital devices, which it doesn't have. But it does everything else really well and looks pretty sleek and cool too. 07 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Doses what it says Vast improvement in sound from 32in TV - enjoyed watching proms and sound was so clear and vibrant..even for my old ears. Seems to be most sensible audio purchase I have made in some years. 04 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent value for money, ideal for a small room, packs a punch!! For just a sound bar and no separate sub woofer this sounds great!! With the sub woofer built in it gives it just enough bass . I gave up my huge system to downsizing to this to save room and I was pleasantly surprised for a budget sound bar it's good. 03 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Good value sound bar Based on previous reviews, I opted for this model even though there are newer versions of this soundbar. It was good value compared to other soundbars and the price for Richer Sounds was unbeatable. Main reason for the purchase was the sound quality and features. The sound has good bass and the surround effect on a Star Wars film I was watching was impressive. Just a shame there are no controls for treble - only the base. Also no controls for music or movie sound setting but there are controls for clear sound and Uni- volume. Overall, recommended, especially for the price. 03 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great value for money. Got this on special offer as being discontinued. Worth the money. 01 August 2014
