With the YHTS401, Yamaha have once again raised the bar!

SO SLIM YOU'LL HARDLY KNOW IT'S THERE

Consisting of an incredibly slim sound bar and an integral subwoofer/receiver, the YHTS401 contains everything you need for surround sound audio in just two, unobtrusive boxes. 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.

POWERFUL BASS FROM A SEPERATE SUBWOOFER

Adding power and weight to the sound is the integral subwoofer. With its built-in 100 watt digital amplifier, the subwoofer reaches down and grips the lowest bass notes for a punchy and dynamic sound.

NEW SONIC ENHANCEMENTS

New to the YHTS401 soundbar is an oval shaped centre speaker. This maximises cone area whilst minimising cabinet height. It also happens to provide a very natural vocal response. Taking this further is the saran net front grille. Unlike lesser cloth materials, this front grille protects the speakers whilst allowing the maximum sound through, unimpeded.

ALL THE FEATURES YOU COULD ASK FOR

In addition to offering an enveloping and punchy sound quality, the YHTS401 has all the features you could ask for from a Front Surround System. A wide range of digital and analogue inputs, including 3 x HDMI inputs, allow you to connect a range of sources. Furthermore, the YHTS401 comes complete with a front-mounted USB socket. It might not look much, but this little socket will transform the sound quality from your iPod or iPhone. By connecting to the USB, you'll benefit from a digital connection. This gives a direct signal and, hence, purer sound quality than using a conventional dock or analogue input. A built-in FM radio is also included. Helping you get the best from your MP3 player or iPod/iPhone, the YHT-S401 features Music Enhancer. As the name suggests, this gives a boost to compressed MP3 music signals, giving them added realism and sense of life.

LOOKS AND FLEXIBILITY COMBINED

When positioning the soundbar you can select one of five positions for the feet, making it easy to find the optimum position with your TV. Alternatively, remove the feet altogether and mount the unit on the wall. A single lead connects up the receiver/sub which, itself, is slim enough to sit on your AV/TV rack with Blu-ray player and other electronics.

For immersive surround sound without all the usual speakers, the Yamaha YHT-S401 simply doesn't compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money Fits unobtrusively into the room if you don't have the space for a bigger sound system. Great value for money! recommended for sure 25 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sound I bought this to upgrade from the yamaha ys101 which didn't have enough bass for my liking......very glad I upgraded this system is exactly what I was looking for....highly recommended. 28 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features and value for money. Down -sizing forced me to look for a smaller sound system. After a lot of research the Yamaha YTH s401 was the best choice available. Having had a more advanced Yamaha system in the past I was not sure if I was going to be happy with my choice. After hearing similar and more expensive sound bars I am pleased that I selected this one. I am also pleased that I bought it through Richer Sounds. Delivery was fast and communications very good. I have no doubt should I have any future difficulties Richer Sounds will sort it out. 24 May 2013
