Enjoy cinema sound from your TV with the added bonus of flexible music streaming, with the powerful Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400.

Match your big TVs picture with sound

Many TVs have big screens these days but sadly not the sound to match. Yamaha’s MusicCast BAR 400 puts that right! Featuring built-in stereo speakers and a wireless subwoofer, this soundbar gives you powerful, immersive sound that’s missing from your TV. Thanks to Clear Voice mode, you also finally get to hear dialogue just as it should be – crisp and clear.

DTS Virtual:X – spacious sound, without the extra speakers
The Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 impresses with DTS Virtual:X technology. Virtual:X gives the impression of height from the sound, meaning that effects such a helicopter flying overhead or falling rain sound more realistic than ever – without the need for extra ceiling speakers.

Powerful bass from a wireless subwoofer
Letting you make the most of an action film or music concert, a separate subwoofer adds a level of realism that is more hi-fi than TV. With the MusicCast BAR 400 you’ll feel explosive soundtracks and hear a whole new level of powerful sound from music concerts. Best of all, this extra power comes with very little inconvenience. The wireless sub connection means there’s no wire between the soundbar and subwoofer. The subwoofer itself is compact and easy to position, requiring just a mains socket to plug in and go.

Optional wireless rear speakers
Another great feature with this MusicCast BAR is the option to add wireless rear speakers. Simply pair with compatible MusicCast 20 or MusicCast 50 speakers and you’ve got speaker cable-free rear speakers – perfect for when you’ve hard floor coverings that won’t accept cable underneath.

The MusicCast difference
The Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast, you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or tablet. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app also lets you operate the speaker and change settings quickly and easily.

Voice control via Alexa
With Amazon’s hugely popular Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. “Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the kitchen”, is all you need to say to get the music started.

All your favourite Music streaming services
Getting the MusicCast BAR 400 (also known as Yamaha YAS408) to play your music is easy. Compatible with Spotify Premium, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Pandora and Napster, all of the major providers are covered. Simply sync with your smartphone or tablet and you’re good to go.

Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay as standard
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Compatible with 4K HDR
With flexible connectivity, the MusicCast BAR 400 is compatible with most TVs. HDMI is standard and is compatible with HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and HDCP2.2 – meaning that it works with top quality streaming and UHD Blu-ray sources. The HDMI connections (1 in/1 out) are also 3D Ready and support Audio Return Channel (ARC) functionality for reduced cabling.

Powerful and flexible, the Yamaha MusicCast BAR 400 is the complete entertainer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sound, looks great, awesome bass. Bought a week ago, everything works really well, apart from the Alexa function, we still haven’t managed to get that working. The bass can easily be overpowering if turned up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, easy to setup. I have only had this for a week but it was easy to setup and use. The app is easy to use also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performance and a precise sub I wanted a wireless home cinema system and multiroom so both the music cast 400 and a pair of musicast 20 speakers. So easy to set up and go and gives solid performance as a 2.1 system and easy to pair speakers for full surround. The virtual DTS isn't that noticeable though so, if you want true surround, then I'd definitely invest in some musicast 20s. Music is precise, solid and musical through the bar and sub and handles all genres well. TV and film come to life well. For the price this is a great package. As good as Sonos but a fraction of the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Soundbar! I recently bought this along with 2 multicast 20 speakers. The unboxing and setup was done within 25 minutes, with surround sound all working! The soundbar is slightly bigger than I thought it would be, so it's worth checking the size out. The sound is amazing and the sub does wonders. I've found the 3d surround button makes everything have too much base, but in normal mode it's cracking! I'd recommend the multicast 20s with it. Setting up surround sound took no time at all, the longest was playing with the settings to have no delay with the pictures on the TV (that was solved by changing the TV options from Dolby to PCM) and setting the Yamaha to Lip sync mode. I debated between this and the Sonos but I'm so glad I went for this, it comes with a sub (Sonos sub was £600 extra at time of purchase) and the speakers are cheaper, so getting one in each room is much more doable. The app is easy to use and has all the features I could need or want. I did a full review of the unboxing and setup along with the Multicast 20's which is available by searching for "Yekki_1" on youtube. This product is great and highly recommended. To see what it looks like and ease of setting up, I've done an unboxing/setup video available on youtube if you search for "Yekki_1"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp clear sound I hadn’t realised how much I needed to upgrade my old system until the new sound bar arrived. Better in every way, and loving the crisp clear vocals. Planning to get some MusicCast 20s to complete the set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, and packs a great punch After living with this for a couple of weeks, I'm happy to have traded my huge AV setup in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music cast is a wonderful concept Added to existing music cast products to compliment the high quality and convenience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb sound and so easy to use I had looked at soundbars at john lewis but even the £1000 one's just didn't cut it, so I took I trip over to Lichfield richer sounds and had a look and listen to a number of soundbars, after being very well looked after by by Daniel I purchased the Yamaha MusicCast Bar 400 (Black) and went home, the soundbar was very easy to set up and looks very stylish on the wall under my television, the sound from it is superb with as much or little base as you want and the advice from Daniel was spot on, In the next few days I am returning to richer sounds to get a bit of advice and hopefully purchase a Yamaha WXAD10 music streamer,
