Yamaha Introduces the SRT-1000

World's First TV Speaker Base with True Surround Sound

BUENA PARK, Calif. (September 2, 2014)-Yamaha today introduced the SRT-1000, the world's first TV speaker base system to offer true 5.1-channel surround sound.


In contrast with current speaker base systems which provide only "virtual" surround sound, the SRT-1000 employs the company's exclusive, critically-acclaimed Digital Sound Projector technology to immerse the listener with five discrete "sound beams," enhancing TV shows, movies and games with sound realism unrivaled in the category.

Only three inches high, the SRT-1000 offers a wood enclosure that looks beautiful, produces excellent sound quality and provides a solid pedestal for TVs as large as 55 inches without blocking the screen. It comes with a rich suite of useful features, including Bluetooth® streaming, Yamaha Home Theater Controller app support for Apple® iOS and Android™ devices and a TV remote learning capability.

"The SRT-1000 brings an unprecedented high level of surround sound performance to this form factor," said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV Products, Yamaha Corporation of America. "Unlike the current leading model in this category, the surround experience you get from our sound beam technology is the next best thing to a multi-speaker home theater-with none of the complications. No one else in America offers it."

The SRT-1000 packs a total of 12 speaker drivers into its sleek enclosure-eight "sound beam" drivers, two oval woofers for clear dialogue and superior stereo music reproduction and two built-in space-saving subwoofers for deep, rich bass. However, if even more bass power is desired, an output on the rear panel allows for an optional subwoofer to be added.

The top surface of the SRT-1000 has a classic hairline finish for a luxurious feel. The front panel and sides have a soft rounded design with a beautiful glossy-black finish. An angled panel at the back of the enclosure makes connectivity easy via two optical, a digital coax and analog inputs.

The SRT-1000 also supports aptX®, providing superior sound quality when streaming music via Bluetooth from compatible mobile devices.
