Yamaha Claims YAS-101 Soundbar is a Game Changer

The YAS-101 features Yamaha's Air Surround Xtreme technology that delivers 7.1 channels of surround sound. Yamaha's UniVolume function helps to eliminates the annoying and unsettling spike in volume during commercials when watching TV programming.

The YAS-101 can be operated by the supplied remote control, and can also be powered on and have its volume adjusted via the user's TV, cable or satellite remotes. This is made possible by the soundbar's ability to learn the control codes of these other components of a home entertainment system.

The YAS-101 can be placed in front of the TV without blocking the picture. The unit's feet are placed wide enough apart to fit over the monitor's pedestal. Since the sound bar will often be placed in front of the TV, Yamaha engineers built-in a unique and patent-pending solution that allows the YAS-101 to pass IR remote codes through to the TV, solving a problem that plagues other sound bars. It can also be placed on a separate shelf or easily wall mounted.

The YAS-101 connects to any HDTV with a single digital cable. This sound bar also provides two optical inputs, 1 coaxial input, as well as a subwoofer output (line out) for an optional external subwoofer.

The YAS-101 will carry a price tag of $299.95.
