AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Superior Virtual Surround

Yamaha-exclusive AIR SURROUND XTREME reproduces virtual 7.1-channel surround sound with high quality, excellent imaging and rich presence far superior to other virtual surround technologies. You’ll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action effects from behind.


Realistic and Impressive Sound

The sound bar houses a digital amp and two 2-1/8" cone speakers with large magnets to ensure high quality sound. Its structural design allows the sound bar to perform with power and clarity in a slim body chassis. Yamaha’s original advanced bass extension processing delivers powerful bass for enhanced performance.


Easy to Place Wireless Powered Subwoofer

This subwoofer features a large magnet, a front-firing configuration, proprietary Yamaha's Advanced YST II and a linear port to produce deep and smooth bass. And, because there is no need to connect cables, it’s easy to set up and place.


Bluetooth® Wireless Music Streaming from Your Smartphone or Tablet


Fill your home with music the quick and easy way! Stream music from Bluetooth®-compatible smartphones, tablets and computers. And with support for aptX® audio coding, performance is better than ever. The YAS-203 can also be set in Bluetooth® standby mode, enabling the bar’s power to turn on or off automatically for energy-saving convenience.

Clear Voice Makes Dialogue and Narrations Easy to Hear

Clear Voice raises the level of dialogue and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies, TV shows, sports and news broadcasts are more clearly audible.

UniVolume™ Maintains the Same Volume Level

This welcome feature, made possible by Yamaha developed technology, maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. It can be switched on and off.

Low-profile Design


With a height of only 3-1/8”, the YAS-203 can be easily positioned in front of most TVs. To straddle a TV stand, simply attach the included feet.

Elegance and Simplicity

The sophisticated design features a piano black finish bringing elegance and quality to the room.




The YAS-203 can be mounted to a wall using commercially available hardware. A paper mounting template is included to assist with the installation process.

Easy Operation from Your Smartphone or Tablet

Download the free Home Theater Controller app for iOS and Android™ to easily perform a variety of basic functions. Select surround modes or make sound adjustments for the best listening experience.


TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission


Even if the YAS-203 blocks the TV remote’s signal, the TV Remote Repeater transmits the signal to the TV so operation is unaffected.

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.
