  • Designed for 55" and larger TVs

Designed for 55" and Larger TVs

At 47-1/4" wide, the ATS-1520-R perfectly complements the look of 55" and larger TVs. When placed on a stand, the bar’s feet allow it to straddle the base of a TV or can be removed for a lower-profile look. The bar can also be mounted to a wall using commercially-available hardware and an included mounting template. Its elegantly-curved front surface and glossy-black finish add a stylish accent to your entertainment center.

Key Features

Easy Setup with a Single-cable Connection

Connect to your large-screen TV with a single digital optical cable - included in the box.

TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission

Even if the ATS-1520-R blocks the TV's remote control signal, the TV Remote Repeater on the back transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected.

Use Your TV Remote

The ATS-1520-R offers a learning feature that allows you to turn the sound bar on/off and control its volume level using your TV's remote control - a great way to reduce the number of remote controls on your coffee table!

AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Powerful Surround Sound

Some sound bars only deliver stereo sound, while others deliver virtual surround sound with inaccurate imaging. The ATS-1520-R employs AIR SURROUND XTREME, a Yamaha-exclusive virtual surround technology that reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with excellent imaging and rich presence, far superior to that of any other sound bar. You’ll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field, with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action at the back.

Key Features

Free Control App for Easy Operation

The ATS-1520-R is compatible with a Home Theater Control App (HT Controller), available for free download for Apple iOS and Android devices. The app makes it easy to control the sound bar via a Bluetooth connection, including input selections, surround modes and other settings.

Bluetooth Wireless Music Streaming from Your Smartphone or Tablet

Fill your home with music the quick and easy way! Stream music from Bluetooth-compatible smartphones, tablets and computers. The ATS-1520-R can also be set in Bluetooth standby mode, enabling the bar's power to turn on or off automatically for energy-saving convenience.

Dual Built-in Subwoofers for Deep, Rich Bass

No need for a separate subwoofer unit! The ATS-1520-R is equipped with two full-range drivers on the front and two down-firing subwoofers integrated discreetly into the bottom of the bar. The drivers are separated to the left and right sides, for sound with breadth and superior imaging suitable for a large screen.

Customer Reviews

I'm very pleased with how this bar sounds.
Amazon Customer
The system is great for someone like me, whose living room doesn't really work for wired surround sound systems.
Christopher Barrett
I play shows with the volume turned down and still clearly hear the conversations.

Style Name: Soundbar
Recently decided to give my older but very decent Onkyo 5.1 HTIB to my son. Still wanted a good sound system for the 11'X17' TV/den room. After reading probably far too many reviews I decided to give this one a try. Did so based on the number of positive reviews of the 2011 released Yamaha model number 101 sound bar. For those of you that own the 101
I understand your appreciation for that system. And, if you are looking for an nice upgrade, this newer, basically a replacement for the 101 should more than suffice. I purchased this model at Costco and it is badged ATS-1520. I unpacked the unit carefully in case the sonics were not up to my liking. The fidelity exiting the sound bar is better than I expected. I am guessing the extra sub this one comes with helps with the overall richness of the sound. The sub from the Onkyo 5.1 was sitting on the floor and I was never tempted to check it out with the new sound bar. The bass was extremely sufficient. With the nice width of this sound bar the spatial aspect, which mostly stays up front was also very nice and full.
Do not judge this sound bar by way of broadcast TV. Make sure you test it with a blu-ray movie and go ahead and check out the easy connecting bluetooth feature. My Android phone hooked up without a hitch. My only slight complaint is I wish they would have kept the two optical inputs. This 47incher has one optical, coax cable, and RCA analog inputs.
Could have used one more optical in.

I love this sounds bar!!! I have hooked to my Samsung 60" smart TV and the sound difference from not having it is 1000% better hands down. As far as sound bars go, realizing The wife variety and cost, if your looking for something nice with great quality and that relativity inexpensive, then this is the sound bat for you. Personally, I like that is all in one unit; the bass box, surround sound, blue tooth...etc!
I've connected my phone and played the music from my phone and it sounds AWESOME!!
Once you hook it up and start playing with the remote, try listening to the differences in sound in the different settings. The one that works for us is putting the bar on surround sound and then turning on the clear voice setting. ..WOW!!
Either way you decide to go you can't beat this sounds bar for the money and is simple install. One plug in wire and your done. Just make sure your TV volume setting is all the way down to zero, you'll be doing all volume control from the sound bar now. Another cool feature is the uni-volume. Take a channel like FX, there movies are at a lower volume then their commercials come on and your blown away, this stops that from happening.
I hope I've helped make your decision a better informed one. Enjoy!

Style Name: Soundbar
I felt like I had to write this review to help others with their decision on a new soundbar purchase. My old surround sound was a Sony system that was 6 years old. It was a 5.1 system but in our new house I only had the front speakers connected and the sub. I did miss my rear speakers but it worked. We decided to upgrade to a soundbar to be able to remove the amplifier/receiver from our entertainment center. I purchased mine at Costco after going back and forth from the different systems they had available. I was excited to bring it home and get it setup. At first I really enjoyed the vocals that this system provided. I had to return the unit because of the lack of bass. We needed the bass that the old system provided and this came no where close. No matter how i changed the settings i could not get any bass that I could feel even the slightest bit during Superman Returns. If bass isn't important to you I would recommend this unit, but if you like to feel your music or movies then pass.

Style Name: Soundbar Verified Purchase
I already own the YAS-101. I absolutely love that one as well. I needed another soundbar and discovered this model. Bluetooth being the key feature that the 101 doesn't have, I chose to go with this one.

Appearance:
Beautiful piano black finish, mesh speaker covers, and features (i.e. Bluetooth, Surround, etc.) subtly labeled on top corners. The remote control looks very nice as well.

Setup:
Easy. Plug in power, plug in provided optical cable, and it's ready to go. Bluetooth is easy as well. I just pushed the bluetooth button and it was connected to my phone right away.

Functionality and features:
The remote is simple and has the necessary buttons to do whatever you need to do. Also, the Yamaha app on App Store is cool too. I can be in another and it works. Can control most settings with app. The lights on front shut off when not being pressed. Volume and subwoofer levels are displayed through the lights as well. Univolume, Clear voice, and "Surround" features are all pretty nice and do what they are supposed to do. Although leave "Surround" off because it's not truly surround, just simulated. Additional inputs for connecting various ways are handy.

Audio quality:
Fantastic! I come from using fairly high quality surround systems most of my life and this single soundbar really performs. The volume is incredible. I'm in a 2 story, 1600 sq ft house and when this thing is cranked up, I can hear it clearly in any part of the house as well as clearly out front and back (with the doors open). The highs are nice and clear. There are no settings for adjusting treble or midrange, but I think it's not needed. The bass is solid. At lower to mid volume the bass can be kicked up and it sounds great.
