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 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great service Bought this to replace a previous (non Yamaha) soundbar. The sound quality is noticeably better with the Bar 400. The Music Cast feature is great - I bought a Music Cast 20 speaker to go with it and have linked them. Very pleased. Also, as usual the Richer Sounds team were very knowledgeable and helpful. When all other shops on the High Street are failing, Richer Sounds demonstrates why we still need them there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy streaming, great sound! I bought this product from the Solihull branch in Birmingham. Wasn’t really sure what I wanted but the staff were extremely helpful in steering me down the right path. They actually saved me money in the long run.... The soundbar gives off great deep sound when watching films. Having the advantage of being able to change sound settings means you also have great sounding music streamed straight from my phone or through amazon, Spotify etc. The advantage of adding wireless rear speakers is a plus too and using Yamahas MusicCast couldn’t be simpler. Plus from me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but no Dolby Atmos. Bought this from Glasgow branch. Asked Salesman if there was a sound bar for sale at 500£ With Dolby Atmos was told no. Yet Sony do one for 499£. As you run through menu on sky Q it loses sound . Will contact store to sort out issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job nicely Having recently upgraded from 32" to 55" TV in what is a relatively small room I wanted to add a bit more sound spectrum to that which the TV, good as it was, could produce. I researched the possibility of adding a sounder that would fit in the space available, and be low enough to neither obstruct the TV picture nor the remote control sensor on the TV. This appeared to meet that requirement. I was anxious about some negative reviews, but noted some very good reviews too. I decided to go for it. What do I like about it? - It's clearly well made and came (from Richer Sounds) at a reasonable price - Dimensionally it is ideal for my limited spatial availability - It was very easy to set up (but it is worth downloading the full manual either from Richer Sounds or Yamaha) - AirPlay works brilliantly being easily selected from our various Apple devices - The MusicCast app (free from Apple App Store) is also brilliant and enables a full range of features and adjustments to be selected - A huge selection of Internet radio is available via the musicCast app - The addition of a set of rear speakers is clearly an easy possibility in the future - Being able to control it via the TV's HDMI (ARC) is great Not so likeable ... (it may be the acoustics of my room) - It seems to me that a little more treble would be good (I keep it set to Clear Voice to overcome this - Getting the sound adjustment just right takes a little working at to avoid bass being too thump or, at louder volumes, a slightly shrill sound. Am I happy with it? YES Do I recommend it? Again, YES!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Yamaha soundbar I bought this soundbar about 3 weeks ago to replace a budget 5.1 cinema sound system as my new room has hard floors meaning that I can't hide cables to the rear speakers. The sound bar produces a good quality base rich sound but I do miss the rear speakers. However the sound is superb and dramatic, but as with anything design has to be balanced with functionality so I'm thoroughly happy with my purchase.
