Customer Questions & Answers

So I found a great deal on the Yamaha YAS-101BL sound bar.
Casey Friday
If you have your own detached home and have the money for it, installed ceiling speakers and surround sound system would still be the ideal, I feel.
Finance Fan
I watch all video on the "Movie" surround mode with the "Clear Voice" feature on, and find the sound to be great and the dialog to be, well, clear.

You will be hard-pressed to find another solution for big sound in a small package that sounds as good as this Yamaha does.

Here's my story. I started with the Bose Cinemate. The TV wasn't pushing enough sound through its speakers, and we couldn't tell what anyone was saying. Rather than doing lots of research, we opted for an immediate solution. We went to Target and grabbed a Bose CineMate unit. It only had analog inputs, but it would amplify the TV's sound, so that's all that matters.

2 years later, we're tired of the bad mistake we made buying the Bose. It's louder, but we still can't hear the dialogue very well on TV shows, movies, you name it. So I found a great deal on the Yamaha YAS-101BL sound bar. It sounded unbelievable compared to the Bose, and at half the cost! I'm a huge Yamaha fan, as I already have a Yamaha horn, guitar, and some day motorcycle. So the Yamaha brand was a no-brainer.

Roku Troubles

HOWEVER! The one area that the YAS-101 wasn't able to keep up was with Roku content. We have a Roku 2 XS for Plex, Netflix, etc, and it's connected to the TV via HDMI. There is no optical out on the Roku box, so we couldn't wire it directly into the Yamaha YAS-101. The TV might have passed the Dolby Digital+ signal directly to the YAS-101, but the sound bar wasn't able to decode the signal. No sound from Roku = no dice.

After searching and reading all kind of reviews for about 2 weeks, I got confused and frustated in get a decent soundbar for my bedroom. I am a fan of the good quality sound and video. I didn't want to open holes in the walls to run the satelite speakers wires because my wife will kill me,so I decide to look for a good hardwire ( no wireless subwoofer) soundbar with a decent review. I was opening to any brands. I already have a powerfull and excellent YHT492UBL system in the living room connected to a 3D Blu-ray and a 55" LED 3D TV and HD channels from my provider, so I know about quality. Because this unit ( YHT 401BL) is new in the market and almost none review I was so scare, but I took the risk. Oh my lord!!! it's unbelivable the sounds. The projection of the expandable surround sound is very clear and realisty. The subwoofer is part of the receiver ( I was scare about this too), it's giving the perfect balance, clear of the BOOM sounds without distortions. I coonected it to a 42" LED 3D samgsum TV 7000 series and I feel so happy about it that here I am, writting a review. If you close your eyes like I did and get inside the room with the system on , you may think that you are listening the most expensive surround system in the market. I know is no cheap, but worth every penny. Buy it, you won't regrete it.

Ok sound and the clear voice option works great. I was no longer asking my boyfriend "what did they just say?" every 10 mins. Sadly, the 3D video pass-through doesn't work with our ps3 & Panasonic ST 30 with HDMI 1.4 highspeed cables setup. We called tech support & they told us it should be plug & play, so we exchanged it hoping it was a defect. Unfortunately this was not the case. 3D works great when the ps3 is hooked directly to tv, but 3D signal dies when played through soundbar system. 2D menus and content work fine through the system, but soon as 3D signal kicks in, it fails to push through the 3D video and only audio comes through the sounbar.
Basically, if you don't plan to watch 3D, I'd rate it as 4stars (assuming you don't mind owning a product where not all functions work).

Verified Purchase
I had previously tried the Yamaha S400BL sound bar to go with my new Bravia HX929 television. (Because it is for a bedroom, I don't have the room or funds to deal with a true surround sound setup.) Although it was significantly cheaper, I found that I had a near-impossible time understanding television dialogue with the 400BL no matter how many settings I tweaked. Now, part of this could be the size of the room or the necessary placement of the equipment, but either way, it was a deal-breaker.

When I saw that the newer model was going to have the clear voice option, I thought I would exchange the old and give it a try. What a great swap! The sound is balanced and the dialogue pops. I can play with all the different surround modes and bass/treble levels and STILL understand the dialogue. Sound quality on movies, games, and even music is exceptional given the small foot-print of this sound bar. I also love that the integrated subwoofer/receiver can be vertically mounted to save space.

So, if you're looking for a sound solution for a bedroom/small lounge, this is a great option. Especially recommended for those who have trouble understanding dialogue from rear-projecting tv speakers or more compressed sound bars.
