Yamaha TSS1B


$190.00 Released January, 2001

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent support for Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS decoding. Mid and high end reproduction has excellent clarity and resolution. Bass is well supported and resonates clearly.

The Cons:There's no input for a center or sub analog. Won't take a computer input and output 5.1 sound - tends to just output 2-channel stereo. Wall-mounting the speakers is a bit awkward, takes some work.

The Yamaha TSS1B is a surround sound system with a built in dolby digital and DTS decoder released in 2001.  It has a 4.1 channel surround mode for PCs and consoles, and a 5.1 channel full scale mode for DVD movies, games, and music.

 It is powered by 48 watts of total power, 6 watts per each of the five satellite, and 18 watts for the subwoofer.  The frequency response is 40 Hz - 20 kHz.  The input sensitivity is 200mV, 1kHz, 4ohms at rated power.  The system is marketed towards computer users, ideal for turning a computer into a surround home theater.  Like other 2001 Yamaha devices it includes the Active Servo Technology to improve the bass and sound quality.  The satellite speakers are adjustable so that they can be pointed in various angles to improve the versitility of the system.  The entire system comes in black color.  For a white version of the same system, look at the TSS1W.
