Yamaha Is Going To Start Making Cars. Tiny Ones.


Yamaha is best known for making everything but cars. They make motorcycles, boats, scooters, wheelchairs, robots, even swimming pools, but not cars.

Yamaha YHT-S401 Sound Bar Review

Yamaha YHT-S401 Home Theater Package Review


  I imagine most people know what a sound bar is because of the name. But what isn’t so well-known is that there’s varied technologies being used in those now on the market — all the same, they aren’t! So I have high hopes for this Yamaha YHT-S401 Home Theater...


Yamaha YAS-101 Soundbar Review

Yamaha PDX-31

Yamaha PDX-31 iPod/iPhone Speaker Dock


Yamaha’s PDX-31 probably won’t knock your socks off when it boils down to sound quality, but in terms of design and simplicity it’s a home run in our book. Inside the box is a reinforced, dual wall “box-within-a-box” construction with twin 3 1/4 -inch speakers.  If you haven’t sussed it...
