We are very pleased to announce two new surround soundbars to the current range offered by Yamaha. Sitting at the entry price point, please welcome the YAS -93 and the YAS -103! The YAS-93 builds on the already successful reputation of it’s predecessor, the YAS-101. Offering second-to-none sound quality, a flexible connection panel and virtual surround sound processing; you’re ready to enjoy great quality from your movies and TV right out of the box. Even the cable to connect to your TV comes with the unit! The YAS-103 sits above the YAS-93 in the range and has all the great features and benefits you may expect from a Yamaha product, but with the added benefit of Bluetooth technology. Using this you can easily stream all your favourite content to the soundbar with just a few quick taps. Not only this, but you can control the soundbar’s features and volume using the Yamaha Home Theatre Controller App, available free from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. The flexible conneciton panel on the back of the YAS-93 and YAS-103 means that it can connect to virtually any TV on the market today. Featuring Optical, Coaxial and RCA inputs you’re covered for almost anything you want to connect to. Both soundbars include an optical cable in the box so you’re ready to go right away. Using the RCA Stereo input you can also connect an iPod, MP3 Player or any analogue device to the YAS-93 or YAS-103 with ease. Both of the soundbars are completely flexible in placement as well, with simple eye-holes on the back they simply mount on the wall with just a couple of screws; no bracket required. They also happily sit in front of your TV on a cabinet or rack. Both soundbars also feature an IR flasher on the back which allows the soundbar to pass through any IR signal it receives to your TV; so there’s no problem if you happen to place the soundbar too close to the TV. Not only this but the soundbar will learn from your TV remote, meaning once it learns your VOLUME UP/DOWN and POWER ON/ OFF you can control your new system with just your TV remote. The YAS-93 and YAS-103 will be available in stores from April 2014, SRPs are as follows: YAS-93: £179.95 YAS-103: £229.95 uk.yamaha.com
