Yamaha SR-B20A Sound Bar
Imagine watching a movie and hearing the soft pitter-patter of rain all around you. Or even the roar of a helicopter flying above you. When you plug in this sound bar, you’ll hear brilliant sound coming from every direction. It’s the kind of immersion you just can’t get from TV speakers.
OVERVIEW OF THE B20A
Appreciating great sound is easy. And now getting it is, too. That’s why we’ve made this punchy sound bar simple to use and simple to love.
As soon as you hit play, you’ll hear sound from left, right, back, and even above you. Virtual 3D surround and DTS virtual:X technology come together to envelop your whole body in sound.
Virtual 3D Surround Technology
3D virtual surround creates a complete sound experience.
“DTS Virtual: X” is a virtual 3D surround mode that reproduces height direction in addition to front / back and left / right. As a result, the sense of unity between the video and audio is improved, and in addition to the front-back and left-right spread, you can feel the sound that surrounds you from above, further improving the immersive feeling in the world of movies and music.
Key Hole for Wall Mounting
Stylish design with a slim and compact form.
A cleverly designed center unit carefully compliments the screen even when placed in front of your TV. The keyhole wall mounting design allows for a simple and smooth installation appearance.
Simple one HDMI cable connection supporting audio return channel (ARC) that can transmit TV audio, and be linked with a compatible TV to control power on / off, adjust the volume, switch contents, etc.
Sound Bar Remote App
With the newly developed Sound Bar Remote App its even easier to control your entertainment. The App can switch contents, sound modes, clear voice and bass extension functions and simple power on / off commands intuitively and easily from your smartphone / tablet.
Rich Bass Reproduction (Built-in SW x2, Bass Extension)
Dual built-in 75 mm (3 “) subwoofer unit combined with the dual bass reflex port, provides a rich and spacious bass range. The 55 mm (2-1 / 8”) woofer unit x2, 25 mm (1 “) tweeter x2, further achieve a well-balanced and spacious sound quality combination from low range to high range.
Have you ever found it difficult to hear voices or lines from announcements and song vocals?
With Yamaha’s clear voice function, you can automatically distinguish human voices such as dialogue and narration from other sounds, increasing the volume of only human voices. Even in movies, dramas, news programs, and music where Back Ground Music and sound effects have been used abundantly, the human voice is clearer and easier to enjoy.
4 Sound Modes
You can enjoy the sound of movies, music, TV programs and games with Yamaha’s optimal sound modes. Select from four options (Stereo, Standard, Movie, Game) designed to suit your content. Stereo mode to match stereo playback of music, Standard mode for most TV programs, Movie mode for movies to enhance space expansion, and Game mode to immerse yourself in gameplay content allowing for individual sound action localization to be clear and precise.
