Soundbar Produces Expansive and Clear Surround Sound
The soundbar houses a digital amp and two 5.5cm (2-1/8”) cone speakers with large magnets to ensure high sound clarity. Its superb structural design allows high capacity cabinet volume for very powerful and clear sound, even though the body is very slim. Yamaha’s original Advanced Bass Extension Processing delivers a surprising abundance of bass for the size, so you never feel the lack of strong bass sound.
Wireless Subwoofer with A-YST II Reproduces Deep Bass with Clarity and Power
This 16cm (6-1/2”) subwoofer features a large magnet and a front-firing configuration. Its high sound quality design takes advantage of Yamaha’s proprietary Advanced YST II and a Linear Port to produce deep and smooth bass. The circuit board has an ideal grounding pattern that ensures stable current supply for prodigious bass output. This subwoofer is capable of delivering powerful movie effect sounds and rich, deep bass.
Clear Voice Makes Dialogue and Narrations Easy to Listen to
Clear Voice raises the level of dialogue and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies and TV shows, sports commentary and news broadcasts are more clearly audible.

Bluetooth Wireless Music Streaming from Your Smartphone or Tablet
Enjoy music from your smartphone or tablet wirelessly, with the full surround sound experience of the YAS-203 And with support for aptX™ audio coding, Bluetooth performance is better than ever, delivering full audio bandwidth for sound quality the same as wired listening with both compressed and non-compressed sources. In addition, a Bluetooth standby mode provides the convenience of having the YAS-203 turn on and off automatically.
IR Flasher for TV Remote Signal Transmission
Sending the TV’s remote signal through the sound bar (TV Remote Repeater function) This function should be enabled when you place the sound bar in front of your TV and you cannot operate your TV with the TV’s remote control.
Learning Function Allows Operation with the TV Remote Control
The YAS-203 can “learn” the TV remote control signal, so you can use the TV remote control to turn the YAS-203 on and off, adjust its volume, and even control the mute function.
Stylish Design Brings Both Elegance and Quality
The elegant and sophisticated design is exemplified by the gently curved lines of the front panel. The top panel features a high-quality contrasting textured and gloss finish, highlighting the presence of the left and right cabinets. Bring elegance and quality to the space around your TV.
Wireless Subwoofer Allows Flexible Placement
The Wireless Subwoofer does not have to be connected to the Soundbar, so setup and placement are faster and easier. This is a convenient subwoofer that delivers powerful, high quality bass sound.
Low Style Design Further Reduces Height, for Convenient Positioning in Front of a TV Set
With a height of only 79mm (3-1/8"), the Soundbar can be easily positioned in front of a TV. If you would like the Soundbar to straddle the TV stand, you can attach the stand to the Soundbar.
The Soundbar Can Also Be Mounted on a Wall
If the TV is mounted on a wall, you can mount the Soundbar just below it for a neat, elegant appearance.
