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 went with with the system based on prior very positive experience with Yamaha audio products, the features, and the price. My current home arrangement precluded me from putting up my big Yamaha 5.1 system, so a sound bar was the ticket to add to my 55" Samsung LED. It does give way better audio than the internal speakers of the TV, and the set up was very simple.
Pros: Easy set up, optical inputs, my TV remote turns it on and off.
Summary: This sound bar works well for the price and produces quality sound along with the Clear Voice feature. Only hold back from a 5 star rating is the volume capability. I expected the max volume to be a bit louder, that said it is loud enough for general use, it judges won't knock you off your chair.
Excerpt: 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.<br /><br />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.
