Yamaha YAS101 Soundbar Like many folk who’ve bought a new flat screen TV, Samsung in our case, we were very disappointed with the sound quality. My first attempt to improve this was a low cost Philips HTC3020 5.1 surround system. Whilst an improvement this had several shortcomings. Wires trailing everywhere, the DVD player refused to work properly with TV, and speech was still not as clear as I wanted. The last point was the killer for me, as I have some hearing damage from industrial noise which makes speech hard to pick up against a noisy background.As we didn’t want the wires, and full surround sound was not a high priority I decided to look at sound bars as a possible solution. After trawling for reviews, and listening to demos I decided that the best price/performance compromise seemed to be the Yamaha YAS101. No-one seemed to be discounting these at all, so I thought I’d hang on until after Xmas to see if any appeared in sales. Then I spotted this at Hughes Direct discounted £20 and…

Fabulous bit of kit if I do say so myself I have a Sony LED backlit tv and like most of these kind of tv’s, they suffer from not spectacular sound due to the thin depth of the tv not allowing any speaker of size and quality to be installed inside.Has the room my tv is in is not very big, I thought that the soundbar would be the perfect solution for me to be able to improve the sound that I am used to.There are two ways that you can connect the sound bar to your tv. First is you can individually connect the separate devices up to the soundbar (which is the method I used). Secondly, you can connect either a digital coaxial or a digital optical cable (depending on what your tv has on) to your tv. For me, this connection method would only allow me to receive the lesser sound quality Dolby Pro Logic sound (I was made aware of this by the indicator light on the Yamaha soundbar). Your tv might be different and might allow you to receive a Dolby Digital or DTS signal direct from your tv from one of the devices…

Budget soundbar but great performance First of all, I wouldn’t buy this if I was looking to make a dedicated home cinema surround system for bluray. However it is a very good addition to a casual living room TV setup, and the lowest priced soundbar I’ve found with optical inputs.I bought this to go with my parents’ Sony KDL40EX723BU, which it must be said, has pretty good sound anyway (for a flat-screen TV). However this soundbar helps create more depth to the audio, filling the room with sound rather than making it obvious it’s coming from a speaker under the TV.Apparently it has a IR-relay to prevent the blocking of TV remotes when the unit is placed directly in front of a TV, however for whatever reason this did not seem to work on the unit I have, perhaps because the IR receiver is set quite far off to one side on the KDL40EX723BU. This is probably the main reason I’m giving it 4 stars rather than 5, as it’s messed up my plans for putting it in directly in front of the TV. ***EDIT: I’ve…
