The 3 star rating is a fairly good estimate, overall

Roger Venne, Amazon

  • 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.

OK with a couple of issues - caution if you own a Samsung tv

  • Summary: Overall this is ok, the sound is much better than the stock speakers in my Samsung tv and hookup was very easy. I had read reviews of other sound bars about the display on the front being bright and distracting; the led points on the front of this unit are not distracting at all.

Yamaha ATS1010 - OK, but...

Robert A. Schweim, Amazon

  • 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.

It works

Brewbie, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought this sound bar to replace a vizio sound bar that stopped working after about 2 years of sporatic use. I already have a nice Polk Audio powered subwoofer so I was looking soley for an upgraded sound bar (made with a little more quality than the Vizio)without the subwoofer.

Disappointing sound

  • 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.

Yamaha YAS-101

  • 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.

Better than just your telly...

D. BARTON, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • 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.

Yeah, well, maybe!

jman, Amazon

  • 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.
