Designed for 55” and Larger TVs
At 47-1/4” wide, the ATS-1520 perfectly complements the look of 55” and larger TVs. When placed on a stand, the bar’s feet allow it to straddle the base of a TV or can be removed for a lower-profile look. The bar can also be mounted to a wall using commercially-available hardware and an included mounting template. Its elegantly-curved front surface and glossy-black finish add a stylish accent to your entertainment center.
Dual Built-in Subwoofers for Deep, Rich Bass
No need for a separate subwoofer unit! The ATS-1520 is equipped with two full-range drivers on the front and two down-firing subwoofers integrated discreetly into the bottom of the bar. The drivers are separated to the left and right sides, for sound with breadth and superior imaging suitable for a large screen.
Bass Reflex Port Contributes to Deeper, Richer Bass
The subwoofer drivers, employing large magnets and large-diameter voice coils, work in combination with the large-volume cabinet of the sound bar and bass reflex ports to deliver outstanding bass response. The bass reflex ports have a straight shape and proper length, as well as ducts shaped like trumpet bells, which reduces wind noise for better sound clarity.
Bluetooth® Wireless Music Streaming from Your Smartphone or Tablet
Fill your home with music the quick and easy way! Stream music from Bluetooth-compatible smartphones, tablets and computers. The ATS-1520 can also be set in Bluetooth standby mode, enabling the bar’s power to turn on or off automatically for energy-saving convenience.
Easy Setup with a Single-cable Connection
Connect to your large-screen TV with a single digital optical cable - included in the box.
Free Control App for Easy Operation
The ATS-1520 is compatible with a Home Theater Control App (HT Controller), available for free download for Apple® iOS and Android™ devices. The app makes it easy to control the sound bar via a Bluetooth connection, including input selections, surround modes and other settings.
AIR SURROUND XTREME Provides Powerful Surround Sound
Some sound bars only deliver stereo sound, while others deliver virtual surround sound with inaccurate imaging. The ATS-1520 employs AIR SURROUND XTREME, a Yamaha-exclusive virtual surround technology that reproduces 7.1-channel surround sound with excellent imaging and rich presence, far superior to that of any other sound bar. You’ll experience an extremely realistic and impressive sound field, with clear dialogue in the front and dynamic sound action at the back.
Compatible with Various Surround Sound Formats
The ATS-1520 is compatible with popular surround sound formats, such as Dolby® Digital and DTS Digital Surround™, so you get the full effect of multichannel movie sound.
Clear Voice Makes Dialogue and Narrations Easy to Hear
Clear Voice raises the level of dialogue and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies and TV shows, sports commentary and news broadcasts are more clearly audible.
Use Your TV Remote
The ATS-1520 offers a learning feature that allows you to turn the sound bar on/off and control its volume level using your TV’s remote control - a great way to reduce the number of remote controls on your coffee table!
TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission
Even if the ATS-1520 blocks the TV’s remote control signal, the TV Remote Repeater on the back transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected.
UniVolume™ Maintains the Same Volume Level
This welcome feature, made possible by Yamaha-developed technology, maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. It can be switched on and off.
Other Notable Features
• Audio delay control (lip-sync)
• Two analog inputs (stereo mini and dual RCA) on the back panel allow the connection of additional audio sources
• Output jack for optional external subwoofer
The most popular 5.1-channel home theater sound system. An improvement over Dolby® Pro Logic® offering: 1) Full frequency response in all channels (3 Hz — 20 kHz), 2) discrete surround channels, and 3) a separate track for bass, only, called the Low-Frequency Effects channel.
DTS Digital Surround™
DTS Digital Surround™ was developed to replace the analog soundtracks of movies with a multichannel digital sound track. This system produces practically distortion-free 6-channel sound (front left and right, center, surround left and right and subwoofer low frequency effect channels for a total of 5.1-channels).
Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication between devices within an area of about 33' employing the 2.4 GHz frequency band, a band which can be used without a license.
AIR SURROUND XTREME
AIR SURROUND XTREME employs a virtual 7.1 channel technology that generates surround and surround back sound images without using dedicated surround speakers. The result is accurate sound directionality while maintaining an immersive surround sound envelopment. Hear clear dialogue from the front while distinctly separate surround effects move smoothly throughout the entire sound field.
UniVolume™ is a Yamaha technology that maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. For instance, when watching TV while using UniVolume™, the volume of commercials will not be louder than the program being viewed. The same is true when switching sources to watch a DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ movie or to listen to music on a CD. This is particularly helpful for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can disturb others in the house.
