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 EXTREME. 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 5by 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. 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by Excellent 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. 17 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by 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. 01 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by 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. 31 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by 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. 14 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by 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 13 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by 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. 03 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by 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 23 February 2014
