The result is powerful, high quality sound that makes TV and movies much more enjoyable.

With a height of only 4-1/4", the ATS-1010 can be easily positioned in front of a HDTV so it straddles the TV stand. With the stand removed, the height can be adjusted. Because both speakers and subwoofers are built-in, it fits more easily into available space than separate components.

Customer Reviews

Using my cable remote it can control volume, but the power function is a no go.
In this case the one-year Yamaha warranty won me over; most refurbished products I've seen come with only a 90-day warranty.
D. Garvey
Decent lows and good mid-range sound with separate volume control for bass control.

I felt it was important that I write this review as I saw very few mentions of the B-Stock/Refurbished items in the previously existing reviews.

Let me break down my purchase process for this sound bar.

Personally, I would have much rather bought a full 5.1 or greater surround system with a proper receiver, but my better half was unwilling to deal with the size of a receiver or wires and extra speakers for a proper surround system, which left us with the option of a good sound bar. Being that a decent 5.1 Onkyo system was available at the same time for less than the cost of this and many other 'good' sound bars I was unwilling to pay the 'new' price, so the fact that this came in-stock from Amazon in a B-Stock / Refurbished option was a definite life and sanity saver.

In choosing this sound bar I went to a local big-box electronics/appliance chain that had all of the options I was considering set up and ready to test.

My options were:
1: Yamaha ATS-1010BL
2: Sony HT-CT150
3: Samsung HW-E450
4: Sony HT-CT260
5: Samsung HW-E350

My requirements were few. It basically needed to have better sound than the built-in speakers on my LG HDTV, have an optical input and cost less than $180.

These requirements immediately disqualified the Sony HT-CT260 although I kept it in the running mostly because it had excellent sound and was on sale at the local chain where I was testing these items out at. It was over budget and that did eventually lead to me removing it entirely from my consideration, although had I the additional budget it would likely have been a strong contender.

Very unhappy with this allegedly "refurbished" product. There was no remote, no manual, no cable, and not even any proper packing. Just the speaker dropped into the box with some packing bubbles. I don't know if this is due to Yamaha or Amazon, but it not the product as described here.

I haven't had time to test it yet, nor have I contacted Amazon for a replacement, so I may update this later. For now, extremely disappointed and feeling ripped off.

I contacted Amazon to exchange this "refurb" for a new one. This was completely painless (other than me choosing to scrounge up some better packing material). Amazon sent another unit immediately, and arranged for UPS to pick up the old one. This took only one business day: I contacted Amazon on Friday and received the replacement on Monday. That is truly excellent service, kudos to Amazon.

I'm also happy to report that the second unit is exactly what I wanted. It appeared to be in new condition, with all original accessories and factory packaging. Everything works correctly. The sound is quite good for what it is. No, it's not suited for a real home theater, but it is a huge step up from typical TV speakers.

I have one complaint. One of the key reasons I selected this speaker is that Yamaha claims to support remote control learning, i.e., one can program it to work with the TV or satellite remote. This is important to me because I don't want yet another remote cluttering up our bedroom. I want the simplicity of controlling volume using the same remote I normally use.

Unfortunately, the learning programming feature doesn't work very well. I'm using this on a Samsung television with a DirecTV receiver.

I rarely buy refurbished products. In this case the one-year Yamaha warranty won me over; most refurbished products I've seen come with only a 90-day warranty. Unfortunately I didn't get one of the refurbished units that are indistinguishable from new. Mine was well packed, but it didn't have the transparent sticky film still attached, and there are noticeable scratches and fine scrapes on the sound bar's black plastic finish. I also noticed that the optical cable lacked the plastic caps that so many reviewers remind you to remove. Initially the cosmetic damage disappointed me, but it's only noticeable on close examination for signs of previous use. If I'm just watching TV or admiring my smart purchase from more than two feet away, it looks great.

What convinced me to keep this sound bar, of course, is the sound it puts out. I have a 39" Sharp Aquos LC-39LE440U TV (keep reading for further comments related to this TV model), and the improvement in sound the Yamaha sound bar provides is incredible. The bass is more than adequate for my needs, providing a cinema-like entertainment experience. I'm playing an R&B CD on it as I type this, and the music sounds great as well. I found setup to be quite straightforward; all features work as described. Some channels I watch blast commercials at an excessive volume. That has always annoyed me to no end -- to no end until now, that is, because this sound bar's remote has a "UniVolume" button that eliminates the problem. When I first set the sound bar in front of my TV, the TV didn't respond very well to its remote because the sound bar was blocking the signal. As soon as I activated the sound bar's TV remote control signal transmission feature, that problem was solved too.
