Yamaha Introduces YAS-203 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer
Yamaha today introduced the latest addition to its top-selling “YAS” series sound bars, the YAS-203.
The feature-rich, yet moderately priced, model offers a wireless active subwoofer with Yamaha exclusive Advanced Bass Extension Processing for enhanced bass, as well as Bluetooth music streaming with aptX and support for a control app for Apple iOS and Android devices. Its lower-profile design enables it to be placed in front of today’s thin-bezelled TVs without blocking the screen.
“With the combined effects of more power, a structural redesign of the enclosure and the addition of our exclusive Advanced Bass Extension Processing, the YAS-203 achieves an outstanding new level of sound quality for this price tier,” said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV Products, Yamaha. “Bluetooth and app control are just icing on the cake – this is a great solution for people seeking a simple, elegant way to enhance a TV with amazing sound.”
The YAS-203 employs AIR SURROUND XTREME, a Yamaha proprietary virtual surround sound technology that delivers an immersive listening experience with more accurate spatial imaging than other such technologies on the market.

- A TV remote learning feature;
- An IR repeater on the back of the bar that passes through remote signals if the TV’s sensor gets blocked;
- Clear Voice to improve dialogue;
- And UniVolume to help manage the annoying volume spikes that can take place between TV ads and programs.
The YAS-203 is easy to connect to a TV with a single digital optical cable (included) and also supports digital coax and analog input options. It can be wall-mounted using the built-in keyhole slots and commercially available hardware.
