Elegant and Practical
With the surround sound unit housed in the top section and supported by two aluminium columns, the YRS-1100 offers an open design that evokes the look of a grand piano and has plenty of space for your other components. It also eliminates the problem of where to put a subwoofer, as a powerful 100W unit is hidden away inside. The middle shelf is height adjustable. An interior slide sheet lets you easily slide the unit when you want to move it. You can use the optional bracket to install your TV flush with the wall, giving you a neat system installation.
Digital Sound Projector™ Technology
The YRS-1100 applies this sophisticated technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by focusing it through multiple beams. The centre channel sound is heard directly, while sounds from other channels are heard after reflecting off walls. The result is true multi-channel surround sound that sounds just like a multi-speaker system – but without the need for extra speakers!
With its built-in powerful 232W digital amplifier and built-in subwoofer, the YRS-1100 is more elegant and less obtrusive than a rack plus multiple speaker boxes. In addition to being economical, it eliminates the need for unsightly speaker cables.
Versatile Listening Modes including 7.1-Channel Output Capability
The YRS-1100 achieves true surround sound by directing sound beams off the walls to reach the listener from various angles. The main mode is 5 BeamPlus2 for 7-channel sources. In addition, there is a wide variety of other listening modes. You can select 3 BeamPlus2 + Stereo, 5 Beam, Stereo + 3 Beam, 3 Beam, Stereo and My Surround.
Eleven CINEMA DSP Programmes
Yamaha’s ultra-sophisticated CINEMA DSP technology creates thrillingly realistic soundscapes in any room. You can select 11 different programmes, including three Movie, three Music and five Entertainment programmes.
Headphone Surround Technology
Yamaha has succeeded in providing a 7.1-channel surround sound experience through headphones, while maintaining excellent audio quality. Using highly sophisticated HRTF (Head-Related Transfer Function) technology and FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filter processing, the headphone output offers accurately localised front and rear sound orientation for private enjoyment of movies and music. There are also specialised modes for TV programmes and games.
HD Audio Format Decoding
The YRS-1100 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray Disc players, as well as from all other digital sources.
1080p-Compatible HDMI V.1.4a
The YRS-1100 provides 3 in/1 out HDMI connections with support for 1080p resolution. HDMI V.1.4a is the latest version of the HDMI interface, featuring 3D for transmitting 3D video signals. Audio Return Channel lets you hear the TV sound from the YRS-1100 via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable. HDMI also provides the benefits of Deep Colour, x.v.Colour and Auto Lip-Sync.
When the YRS-1100 can be connected to a CEC-compatible TV, such as a Panasonic VIERA Link compatible television, it will turn on and off simultaneously with the TV.
IntelliBeam Automated System Calibration
This Yamaha exclusive feature ensures optimum multi-channel sound reproduction with accurate image location. By monitoring and analysing the sound with the microphone included with the YRS-1100, IntelliBeam automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimising the level and frequency response of each beam. This makes initial setup both extremely simple and acoustically perfect.
High Sound Quality Design
The 16 beam speaker drivers have an acoustic suspension design and silk edges for smooth high frequency response. The dual 6x10cm front speakers have a new low-vibration design and the front cabinet is designed for clean midrange response. The 13cm subwoofer has a powerful magnetic circuit for deep and strong bass. In addition, the bass reflex port has a flared edge design to prevent wind noise.
This welcome feature maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programmes, commercials and input sources. It can be switched on and off.
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. This function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should.
Other Notable Features
• Turn On Volume: Volume comes on at a preset level when power is turned on
• Surround indicator shows HD or SD video format
• Multi-language on-screen display: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Dutch and Swedish
• Stereo mini jack headphone out

AirWired Technology for Wireless Connections via Optional YID-W10
The YRS-1100 makes it easy to enjoy music from your iPod/iPhone via a wireless link. You also get outstanding sound quality, because AirWired technology transmits uncompressed data so there is no loss of signal data, unlike systems that use Bluetooth technology to send compressed data. In addition, there is no delay time, ensuring that sound and video are always in sync.
Dolby TrueHD is an advanced lossless audio technology developed for high-definition disc-based media including Blu-ray Disc. Selected as an optional audio standard for Blu-ray Disc, this technology delivers sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, offering a high-definition home theater experience. Supporting bitrates up to 18.0 Mbps, Dolby TrueHD can carry up to 8 discrete channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio simultaneously. Dolby TrueHD also remains fully compatible with the existing multichannel audio systems and retains the metadata capability of Dolby Digital, allowing dialog normalization and dynamic range control.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industrysupported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. Providing an interface between any source (such as a set-top box or AV receiver) and an audio/video monitor (such as a digital television), HDMI supports standard, enhanced or high-definition video as well as multichannel digital audio using a single cable. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. When used in combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), HDMI provides a secure audio/video interface that meets the security requirements of content providers and system operators.

CINEMA DSP Digital
･ Since the Dolby Surround and DTS systems were originally designed for use in movie theaters, their effect is best felt in a theater having many speakers designed for acoustic effects. Since home conditions, such as room size, wall material, number of speakers, and so on, can differ so widely, it is inevitable that there are differences in the sound heard. Based on a wealth of actually measured data, Yamaha CINEMA DSP provides the audiovisual experience of a movie theater in the listening room of your own home by using the Yamaha original sound field technology combined with various digital audio systems.
･ The actually measured sound field data contain the information of the height of the sound images. CINEMA DSP 3D mode achieves the reproduction of the accurate height of the sound images so that it creates the accurate and intensive stereoscopic sound fields in a listening room.
Compressed Music Enhancer
Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
This unit creates a sound field by reflecting sound beams on the walls of your listening room and by broadening the cohesion of all the channels. Just as you would arrange the speaker position of other audio systems, you need to set the beam angle to enjoy the best possible sound from this unit. This unit employs the beam optimization and sound optimization features with the aid of the supplied IntelliBeam microphone, allowing you to avoid troublesome listening-based setup and achieving highly accurate sound adjustments that best match your listening environment. We call these two features “IntelliBeam” generically.
