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 XTREME. 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 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price This is a great, small and cheap soundbar that is more than enough for my needs, I would have preferred a slightly more linear design, but hey who looks at the bar :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compromise....... Extremely easy to set up and operate, but the manual can be a little confusing if you're not used to setting up this type of equipment. Sound-wise, not bad at all - we are "stepping down" from a full 5.1 system but we are more than happy with this product's output. We have the sub/amp in a horizontal position on a rack so no need to tilt your head to read the display! We use all three HDMI inputs and out TV is old so we do not have ARC. For what we paid we are more than happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soundbar for limited space Due to space I decided to get a soundbar system instead of separates. The sound produced is indeed better than the TV sound system. The good thing about this system is that I can add 2 back surround speakers at a later date if I wanted to and I can also change the 3 front speakers if I want to. The sub woofer is powerful enough for a TV system The service from RicherSounds is second to none and very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This product works great. Great speakers with great sound. Also can upgrade at a later point with extra speakers. Well worth the price. Also the Reading store staff helped alot and fix all issues I had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected quality from Yamaha but still flawed... Bought this today but will be returning it tomorrow. My views in a nutshell: The Pros: - I like the fact it has an amp/av receiver which gives some street cred to your set up, plus looks nice vertically propped up. - the sound from this sub is very rich, warm and silky. - although a small soundbar - it produces an expansive sound bigger than you would think. - it's Yamaha, so its built to last. The cons: - Doesn't go well with large TV's - i have a 60" and it was dwarfed in comparison...to the point where it looked funny. I guess i now understand why women prefer those extra inches. - it was unable to read my 64GB USB, and without bluetooth this was kind of a deal breaker for me. - all sound presets are whack. Trust me when i say, leave it on STEREO with both 'clear voice' and 'enhancer' switched on. - Mid range sound could be better. - Sub doesn't go low enough - not fully musical to all Hz. All in all, kind of worth the £200 price tag...that's if you're not too picky!
