Yamaha Releases YHT-S401 Surround Sound Soundbar System


Yamaha_YHT-S401_soundbar.jpgYamaha has introduced the YHT-S401, a system designed to provides virtual 7.1 surround sound from two compact components.

The YHT-S401 consists of an ultra-slim soundbar featuring dual 50W full range speakers at each end, with an integrated 50W center channel speaker. This soundbar is matched with a 100W subwoofer-integrated receiver that can be oriented either horizontally or vertically for convenient placement.

The YHT-S401 system's surround soundbar has adjustable stands that rotate to ensure the exact height is achieved for placement in front of virtually any TV. The stands can also be removed for wall mounting.

Virtual 7.1 surround sound is achieved through the company's proprietary AIR SURROUND XTREME.

Six surround modes--Movie, Music, Sports, Game, TV Program and Standard--make it easy for the user to find a listening experience suited for different types of entertainment content. Yamaha's Clear Voice feature makes dialog and narration reportedly easier to hear.

The YHT-S401 offers compatibility with many sources: HDMI (3 in/1 out) supporting 1080p resolution, 3D Video, ARC (Audio Return Channel) and HD Audio formats. A headphone jack enables consumers to enjoy virtual 7.1-channel surround sound from headphones.

For even further enjoyment of music sources, the YHT-S401 also includes a built-in FM tuner and a Digital USB connection for iPod/iPhone, which enables these devices to be transmitted directly, minimizing interference and maximizing sound.

Yamaha proprietary Music Enhancer technology makes compressed music files (MP3 and AAC, for example) sound much more rich, detailed and realistic.

The YHT-S401 is currently available with a suggested price of $699.95.
