It's not just sound, it's beautiful design. The YAS-101 is a slim, low-profile sound bar speaker system featuring the latest AIR SURROUND XTREME technologies and a built-in, powerful subwoofer that delivers a 7.1-channel surround sound from a single unit - all in a stylish and beautiful piano black finish.

Visually Intriguing Design
As a manufacturer of fine musical instruments, Yamaha AV products are created with sensitivity to great sound and elegant design. The YAS-101 has large speaker units designed with a focus on simplicity and elegance.

The Piano Black Finish
Glossy and beautiful, to Yamaha, piano black is a very special color. The elegance and sophistication of the YAS-101 emanate from its polished black surface and perfectly harmonizes with any interior.

Curved Surface Projects Surround Sound
The front is beautifully designed with a gentle curve. This stylish sound bar gives the impression of smoothly projecting surround sound to all parts of the room.


Dolby® Digital

The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby® Pro Logic® offering: 1) Full frequency response in all channels (3 Hz - 20 kHz), 2) discrete surround channels, and 3) a separate track for bass, only, called the Low-Frequency Effects channel.

DTS Digital Surround

DTS Digital Surround was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a multichannel digital sound track. This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (front left and right, center, surround left and right and subwoofer low frequency effect channels for a total of 5.1-channels).


AIR SURROUND XTREME employs a virtual 7.1 channel technology that generates surround and surround back sound images without using dedicated surround speakers. The result is accurate sound directionality while maintaining an immersive surround sound envelopment. Hear clear dialogue from the front while distinctly separate surround effects move smoothly throughout the entire sound field.


UniVolume is a Yamaha technology that maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. For instance, when watching TV while using UniVolume , the volume of commercials will not be louder than the program being viewed. The same is true when switching sources to watch a DVD or Blu-ray Disc movie or to listen to music on a CD. This is particularly helpful for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can disturb others in the house.
