Sound bases have been gaining in popularity the past couple of years. Yamaha’s new SRT-1000 sound base ups the ante by incorporating 10 speaker drivers in it’s slender box.


The Yamaha SRT-1000 uses Digital Sound Projector Technology to beam sound around your room. The sound beams reflect off the walls creating a virtual surround sound experience. Housed inside the MDF cabinet are eight 1-1/8” beam drivers and two oval 1-1/2” × 4”  mid-range woofers. To compliment the 10 drivers the SRT-1000 has two 3 1/4″ subwoofers each with their own bass reflex ports to help create smooth airflow. The sturdy MDF cabinet means you can set your TV directly on top of the SRT-1000. It’s designed to accommodate TV’s with a screen size of up to 55 inches and which weigh up to 88 lbs.

For connectivity Yamaha’s equipped the SRT-1000 with two digital optical inputs, one coaxial input, and one analog input. If you want a little more oomph in your system, the SRT-1000 also includes a subwoofer output for an external subwoofer hook-up.

The addition of bluetooth means you can stream music wirelessly from your iPod, Smartphone or Tablet. The MSRP of the Yamaha SRT 1000 is $499 which is a little steep in this product category, however if it sounds good it may be worth the price. The SRT-1000 is expected to be released some time in September or October of this year.
