    Yamaha launch first Sound base - the SRT1000
    Yamaha may have been right at the forefront of the tidal wave of soundbars that have hit the market in recent years but they’ve been a little behind in the soundbase/soundplate sub-product category. Until now.
    Yamaha’s first-of-a-kind SRT-1000 comes with 2 Optical connections, 1 Coaxial, 1 stereo RCA and has a Subwoofer output. The unit itself is designed to support TV sizes up to 55”. It will also learn from your TVs remote control.

    Naturally, the SRT-1000 features a set of unique Yamaha technologies built in. As one example, which is similar to their YSP-1400 soundbar, an 8 sound-beam system is utilised which bounces said beams around your room to give you a surround sound experience in up to 5.1 channels. It’s based on the Intellibeam technology from their higher end soundbars, but refined to be more affordable and accessible.

    This soundbase features app control with the HT Controller app. The app allows you to switch inputs, control subwoofer levels, adjust DSP and calibrate your SRT-1000 by dragging your finger around the app’s control interface. The app works using Bluetooth connectivity, so while controlling the SRT-1000 you can also stream music to it from your Bluetooth enabled device. It’s available for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store .

    Inside the soundbase are a pair of subs with independent bass reflex ports. These ports have been specifically designed to reduce unwanted resonance by facilitating a smooth flow of air, while taking into consideration the strength of the ports themselves.

    The SRT-1000 will be available in late Summer 2014 and will have an SRP of £499.95.
