And the best part is I can still control the bass volume via the 101 remote!! I was not aware that I would be able to do that. Very impressive Yamaha!!
if i add a Yamaha YST-FSW050 subwoofer to my yas 101 soundbar, will the subwoofer turn on and off automatically?
it s important for me. in fact sw012 yamana sub is enough for me but i has no auto on and off function
Yamaha YST-FSW050has this feature but some reviewers say auto on off features work. some reviewers says it doesnt work.
from an amazon.com reviewer
"As others have noted, this subwoofer needs a separate trigger cable (included) to automatically turn it on/off remotely via the receiver. If your receiver does not have a trigger jack like mine, you will need to turn on/off the sub with its own power button. It cannot use the RCA signal cable as a trigger like the older Yamaha subs. On the older models the sub is always in low power standby and then fully turns on automatically when it senses an audio signal via the RCA cable. For some reason this model doesn't allow for that older method of automatically turning on/off the sub."
