The 3 star rating is a fairly good estimate, overall

Roger Venne, Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: This YAS-101 BL factory refurbished Soundbar is exactly what is says: refurbished! The sound quality is up there with other soundbars in this price range, but there were scuff marks all over the top of the soundbar...I expected some but not that many!

Sound bar works great, bad remote.

S. Jone, Amazon

  • Summary: Read other reviews so I unpack the unit from box carefully. The sound bar arrived and took less than 10 minutes to setup. The piano black looks great and the sound is a major upgrade from the TV's sound quality. The remote control was bad on arrival.

Doesn't work with my Samsung

  • Summary: Got this on the gold box special for $149.99. It's a good deal for that price. I had to remove the stands because the speaker was too tall and blocked the signals on my Samsung tv making the remote unusable. No problem there. I ordered the Yamaha YAS-101 but the YAS-101BL arrived.

Better than original speakers but short of wonderous.

  • Summary: The soundbar was purchased because of the "clear voice" application which was supposed to clarify voices for slight hard of hearing persons. The soundbar is a little better than the TV's original speakers but does not work any miracles.

Yamaha ATS1010 - OK, but...

Robert A. Schweim, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: Bought this item a few days ago at Costco to try and improve upon anemic TV sound (Insignia 42" HD LCD) and also declutter the front room with five separate speakers all over the place.

Seemed to be problems

Mr. j. Wilson, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought one as I wanted to improve my system, I thought I would be just a case of connecting optical cable from tv to soundbar, the cable supplied is quite thin, but I had bought a better one.

Yeah, well, maybe!

  • Summary: The sound quality from my rather expensive Philips TV is excellent, but at a mere 2 x 4 wats the amplifier isn't up to dealing with very low sound input. So I bought a soundbar for when this would necessary.

Better than just your telly...

D. BARTON, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm slightly disappointed but not necessarily surprised that the 'surround' capabilities of this unit are virtually none. For the price, I'm not sure what I really expected. If you have a pair of stereo speakers connected to your television, there is no point buying this.

Yamaha YAS-101

RB, Amazon
8 February 2012
  • Summary: Received promptly, good service. The base sound is good but not great. Its supposed to provide surround sound, but I could not distinguish any real surround affect. It just seems to provide the base that's missing from most TV speakers.

Disappointing sound

J. Lazenby "Bubblemix", Amazon
23 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this through Hughes Direct (whose service has been excellent). The build quality and looks of the product are excellent, and it fitted perfectly beneath my TV. It is easy to set up.
