Rated 5 out of 5áby Philly Stunning item !!
Well, I already had a soundbar for my LG tv - seems the LG tvs suffer with poor sound as standard? - the performance of my current soundbar was not that great either so I visited my local store in Exeter. I always use Richer Sounds for my kit even when there was no Exeter store - I went to Plymouth! anyway I purchased this, it has the x2 optical connections which I like and there is a phono input so a subwoofer can be added in the future. I like the profile design too and it really spreads the sound out into the room but what strikes me is the all important sound - WOW!, and the build quality - I got a full range of sound from the lows all the way - when you play a Blu-ray through it - hold on!! its stunning - listened to U2 360 on a level that I have never heard - sits under my 40 inch great and as always the staff were brilliant. Although there is an optical lead id buy a better one as I did like an IXOS or similar. For the money its just great.

It is a known fact that thin plasma tvs invariably sound very tinny. I had to strain to hear what was actually being said. I decided to buy a soundbar. I searched review sites and the Yamaha 101 was mentioned by most of them. After searching all the pricerunner sites, Richersounds came out tops as far as price was concerned. I am a 72 year old woman who managed to set this up myself. The only thing that Richersounds could have done was made customers aware that although an optical cable was included, if soundbar was to be fitted to a STB, then an audio optical cable was also required. I had no problem in buying the cable needed, and the same night I was "at the movies". Not only are Richersounds top of my list for being able to sell top of the range products, and offering free delivery, but the delivery time was next to none. I would definitely recommend this product to enhance the sound of your television, and if I can sort it on my own, then anyone can.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Henry060 A vast improvement on standard flat screen TV speakers.
This product does not claim to be a full surround sound home cinema system but if, like me, you have a smallish room and don't want a network of wires trailing around it, the Yamaha 101 is ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Reidy27 Exceeded expectations
After spending countless time researching surround sound and sound bars, I finally decided to go ahead with the YAS101. I'm glad I did! Highs and mids are crystal and the sub really took me by surprise considering it is built into the bar. Looks nice an sleak mounted beneath my TV.
Has improved my gaming experience tenfold (xbox one) and really brings games to life. I was also impressed with the notifications sent to me by Richer Sounds regarding my order.
Only issue I had was that I had to buy wallmount screws separately.
For the price, I dont think you can go wrong. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5áby jim499 What a great bit of kit
I have been missing high and low frequencies as my hearing has deteriorated over time.
This kit has greatly improved my enjoyment of TV with the brilliant clear sound option. Sound from blue rays is terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tony101 great sound
bought this to improve terrible sound from a recentlly bought LG TV. Very easy to set up, just connect the supplied optical cable and mute the TV speakers. Now sound is great vioces are much clearer and you hear all the background music. i dont bother too much with the surround setting for me the key benefit is better and clearer sound

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dave48 decent bass
simple to install, sits neatly on mantle takes little room up sounds great 4 the price..... not as good as my home cinema sound, but I believe it will replace that. .all in all very satisfied with the sound bar & the delivery service that richer sounds does.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Gavin Great sound
Great sound thought my new tv had good sound quality but after using this soundbar it makes the tv sound tinny on its own.
Fits nicely under 40" tv
Only downside for me is the soundbar uses optical out and tv operates coax out connection so had to route via freeview box
Looking into buying a connector
