Yamaha Sound Bar YAS 101BL Review
Entertainment in Small but Powerful Packages
Not everyone has the money to dole out for a powerful home theatre system with surround sound and the works. Not everyone needs it either. For them, there is the Yamaha Soundbar , which is a single speaker system coming with a subwoofer. Its sleek body is likely to impress, along with its stylish design. The sleek body enable it to fit well into any setting and impress upon any guests.
- Integrated Sound System with Dual Frontal Speakers
- Single body design, allowing easy positioning
- 7.1 channel surround sound
- Learning function, so that you can use any remote for your choice
The surround sound system means that it is a valuable addition in your household and will also help you listen to extremely realistic sound. This means that you’ll be able to hear the dialogue clearly, along with the accompanying background sounds.
Ease of Use
It’s easy to install as it has only two wires you need to worry about (the power cord and the optical cable), therefore sparing you the headache of having to deal with a complicated system. Its size means that an average size cabinet will be able to fit it quite easily. It can also be easily positioned either above or below the TV because of its slim fit. For those of us who have out TV’s hanging on the wall, it can be hung on the wall as well making it extremely convenient no matter what system you have. It also has a bass port, meaning that with some extra space, you’ll soon be able to enjoy some power bass accompaniment.
If TV owners are worried about it hindering their remote signal, there are no worries on that front. Despite it normally being place in the front of the TV, it does not block TV signals due to an in built setting that allows the signals to be relayed out of the rear end, therefore letting you switch on the TV and also enjoying its spectacular sound system.
- Not really for people who want full Home Theatre experience
- Low bass, not favourable among hardcore music lovers
- Not extremely intense surround sound
As noted above, this is possibly not the system for the extremely passionate music lover, but for the more casual and relaxed listener. It will not deliver the exact same experience as a fully built home theatre experience might however, for its price and at its range it will certainly deliver more than enough. For them it is:
- Easy to fit in an everyday home
- Built in subwoofer, needs no extra space
- Perfect fit for a cosy home situation
In other words, it’s the perfect mini home theatre experience you may be looking for.
For those of you who are looking for the hardcore experience, this is not for you but this gives a nice addition to any household due to its many conveniences and reasonable price. For those beginning their home theatre experience or simply looking to amp up their entertainment while sitting at home, this is the system for you and Bose certainly does not fail to deliver.
