Yamaha YAS-70 Front Surround System

Dolby Pro Logic II
Improved version of Dolby Pro-Logic for music and movies. With a more intelligent matrix decoder, it is suitable for both stereo and surround-encoded sources. It offers “bass management” as well as the option of incorporating “width,” “dimension” and “panorama” controls.

Made for iPod
The optional YDS-10 Universal Dock lets you connect your iPod to this receiver. You can listen to your iPod music and watch iPod images and movies on your monitor via the receiver. You can also operate your iPod via the receiver’s remote unit with the On-Screen Display and charge your iPod. Works with:iPod nano, iPod mini and iPod (Click and Wheel)

DTS Digital Surround
The basic DTS 5.1 channel sound format. Uses a higher data rate than Dolby Digital.

Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects from ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater! The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1), DTS Neo:6 and DTS 96/24 decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.

Advanced YST
Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) is a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance.

YAS-70 Front Surround System
Surround sound and deep, powerful bass from just two units! No need for an amplifier or other speakers.

Exclusive Air Surround System
Drawing on our extensive experience in digital signal processing and the use of sound reflections to create surround sound, Yamaha developed the Air Surround System. Through direct and reflected sound, it provides an enjoyable listening experience without center and rear speakers. It can be used in rooms of all sizes, and is especially convenient for small rooms. Stereo sound can also be enjoyed.

Quality and Convenience!
The YAS-70 provides surround sound experience — without the need for the usual multi-speaker system. Listeners hear five channels (with the appropriate sources) from the Air Surround unit and robust bass from the subwoofer. DVD movies and other sources, including stereo sources like TV, will be heard in dynamic surround sound. In addition, the design is both elegant and flexible — there is no need for speaker boxes placed around the room, no need for lots of speaker cables, and both units can be positioned in the center of a wall or in a corner.
