Summary: This sure beats the sound from my TV. Listening to the music and sound tracks from everything I watch and the music channels my cable service provides are much brighter and clearer with this system. I was pleasantly surprised how good this small sound bar and subwoofer perform especially considering what it's priced at. I'm not an audiophile but it sounds good to everyone thats been around to listen in. They say you get what you pay for and I think it's money well spent.
Summary: everything about this sound bar is amazing. the only bummer is that it doesn't have blutooth. the bass is a ridiculous good. My next door neighbor complain that it was too loud. i even use this as a stereo for whenever i have a little party.
Summary: Buying this item is something you would not regret. this one provides good quality sound and sufficient power for an average room, the design is practical and elegant. However, one wonders why on earth yamaha fail to include a built-in bluetooth connection to stream musing from any portable device, let's say a tablet, smart phone, etc?
Summary: I'm so glad I bought a Yamaha YAS-201 Front Surround System with Wireless Subwoofer, because with the soundbar alone, I cant't tell the difference from my Samsung 60-Inch Plasma HDTV and the system.
Summary: Pros : Excellent sound ..Features are awesome. easy to connect/install. Cons : iPhone / iPod connector slot is missing. Overall , I would recommend this product to anyone who looking to buy sound bar.
Summary: I used this Yamaha to replace a very rare Niro1 single-point surround system that died. At 1/4 the cost of the Niro, wasn't expecting the world... and while there are some things I miss, I'm very impressed with the Yamaha's performance for the money. In stereo mode, the speakers provide enough separation to get a good feel for the stereo image of a mix, be it music or film.
Summary: For a 2.1 sound bar, the YAS-201 offers excellent sound. It definitely enhances the TV sound. I wish the mute button on the remote could be transferred to my cable remote. This is a definite disadvantage. To use the mute button, this forces us to a 2 remote system which defeats the purpose of the "learn" technology. Also, the bass at it's highest setting is still low. Yamaha, is there any to overclock the subwoofer to increase the volume?
Summary: Let's face it: you're not looking at mid-price sound bars like the Yamaha YAS-201 if you really want the FULL home theater experience. But if you've already made that concession, this is a great option. The unit is compact and stylish, obviates the dilemma between laboriously hiding wires or leaving them strung throughout your living room, and creates a substantial front soundfield and balanced sound.
Summary: Sound quality is great. Clear Voice feature keeps all voices audible so you don't miss one-off phrases. Univoice feature keeps volume uniform from commercial to commercial. Surround sound replication best heard in a small living room. Do not buy if you have a large living room. The bass is nice for low ends and 'quiet rumbles' but is lacking in overall oomph given the size of the subwoofer. Very simple to connect to TV.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Intuitive Controls
