TV Compatibility: At 47.25" wide, the YAS-152 active soundbar speaker
is designed for 55" and larger flat-panel LCD, LED-LCD, and Plasma TVs.
Its elegantly-curved front surface and glossy-black finish will complement your
flat-panel TV perfectly. Your television must also features an analog
(3.5mm/RCA) or digital (optical/coaxial) input.
2.2Ch Speaker System w/ 120W Digital Amplifier: The Yamaha
YAS-152 soundbar combines two 2.5" full-range drivers (front-firing) with dual
3.5" subwoofers (down-firing), driven by a built-in digital amplifier rated at
30 watt (RMS) x 2 channel (6-ohm, 1kHz, 10% THD) + 60 watt (RMS) x 1 channel
(3-ohm, 100kHz, 10% THD).
- Dual 2.5" Full-Range Drivers: The two 2.5" full-range drivers are
housed in separate acoustic suspension chambers on the left and right side
of the cabinet for superior imaging and detail.
- Dual 3.5" Subwoofers: The dual 3.5" subwoofers employ large
magnets and large-diameter voice coils for dynamic bass
response; ensuring that the overall sound has a rich sense of
presence, making movie effect sounds more realistic. The dual 3.5" woofers
are housed in separate bass reflex chambers for added efficiency and better
bass response. Each bass reflex port has a straight shape and adequate
length to provide outstanding bass response together with the large volume
cabinet. The duct outlet is shaped like a trumpet bell, which reduces wind
noise for better sound clarity.
Dolby Digital/DTS + Air Surround Xtreme: The YAS-152
soundbar is compatible with popular surround sound formats; such as Dolby
Digital and DTS Digital Surround, so you get the full effect of multichannel
movie sound. Yamaha's exclusive Air
Surround Xtreme reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with high quality,
excellent imaging, and rich presence; far superior to that of the speakers in
your TV. You'll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field,
with clear dialog in the front and dynamic sound action at the back and sides.
You can also set the soundbar speaker system to Stereo.
Audio Enhancements: The Yamaha YAS-152 soundbar speaker
provides a variety of audio adjustments to enhance your movie and music
- Clear Voice: The Clear Voice function raises the level of
dialog and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies, TV shows,
sports commentary, and news broadcasts are more clearly audible.
- UniVolume: UniVolume is a Yamaha-developed 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 movie,
or to listen to music on CD. This is particularly helpful for late night
watching and listening when spikes in volume can disturb others in the house or
apartment building. This feature can be switched On or Off.
- Audio Delay Control (Lip Sync): This technology adjusts
the timing of the picture and dialog, so they are always in sync with one
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Yamaha YAS-152 is fitted with
both analog and digital inputs to connect your flat-panel television and other
AV components. The soundbar speaker features two analog inputs (3.5mm/RCA) and
two digital inputs (optical/coaxial). The soundbar's digital inputs support PCM,
Dolby Digital, and DTS audio signals. You should turn your TV's speakers off or set the TV's
volume to 0.
Subwoofer Output: The Subwoofer Out mono-RCA jack on the
rear-panel of the Yamaha soundbar lets you connect an additional subwoofer to
enjoy even more powerful bass sound. You cannot use the soundbar speaker's
built-in subwoofer and the external subwoofer connection simultaneously.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Yamaha YAS-152 soundbar supports
Bluetooth (v.2.1+EDR) A2DP wireless audio streaming. This allows you to stream
stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device (such as your
Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/table, or computer/laptop) to the
YAS-152 soundbar speaker. You will continue to navigate your music and view
song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled device. This unit pairs with
your Bluetooth-enabled device with a single press of a button. Up to 8 devices
can be paired, but only one can be used at a time. Once paired, the
YAS-152 will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range
(up to 33').
Remote Control w/ IR Repeater: The YAS-152's IR remote
control is simple and easy to use. It lets you turn the power On or Off, adjust
the volume, do other basic operations, and lets you switch the surround modes.
The YAS-152 also has the ability to "learn" the TV remote control operation, so
you can use the TV remote control to turn the YAS-152 On or Off, and to adjust
its volume. This allows you to use either the TV remote or the Yamaha remote for
easy operation. Even if the YAS-152 blocks the TV's remote control signal, the
IR repeater on the back of the soundbar transmits the signal to the TV so
operation is not affected.
Remote App (for Apple iOS/Android): The YAS-152 is compatible with
Yamaha's Home Theater Control App (HT Controller), available for free download
for Apple iOS (5.1+) and Android (2.3.3+)devices. Download this app from the
iTunes App Store or
Google Play Store. This remote app makes it easy to control the
sound bar via a Bluetooth connection; including input selections, surround
modes, and other settings.
Mounting Options: When placed on a stand, the soundbar's
feet allow it to straddle the base of your flat-panel TV, or can be removed for
a lower-profile look. The soundbar speaker can also be mounted to a wall using
the two rear-panel keyhole slots, the included mounting template, and mounting
hardware (sold separately).
Auto Standby: The soundbar will automatically turn off when there is
no operation for 8 hours, or not audio input and no operation for 30 minutes.
