Two new subwoofer models have been released.
"Although our Yamaha AV receivers are the heart of the home theater system, the NS-SW050 and NS-SW100 powered subwoofers bring the heartbeat to songs and movies with a noticeable twist that helps generate deep, yet tight realistic bass sound," said Robert Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "These attractively designed subwoofers with Twisted Flare Ports really bring life to a home theater system."
The NS-SW050 and NS-SW100 Powered Subwoofers both feature Yamaha's Twisted Flare Port technology and Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology II, providing a clean, smooth flow of air from the port for minimized noise and tighter more stable and accurate bass tones. The NS-SW050 uses an 8-inch cone and is rated for a 28-200 Hz frequency response. The unit measures 11.5 x 11.5 x 13.375 inches and weighs 18.7 pounds. Meanwhile, the NS-SW100 uses a a 10-inch cone and is rated for a 25-180 Hz frequency response. This model measures 13.875 x 13.875 x 16.125 inches and weighs 26.5 pounds. Both subwoofers offer 50 watts of output power.
Beyond subwoofers, Yamaha also recently announced its upcoming RX-V 83 Series or AV receivers. The lineup includes the 7.2-channel RX-V683 and RX-V583, and the 5.1-channel RX-V483 and RX-V383. The 7.2-channel RX-V683 and RX-V583 models both feature the Enhanced CINEMA DSP sound field program, along with support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive audio formats. In addition, all four models will also add Hybrid Log-Gamma HDR and Dolby Vision support via a future firmware update set for release by the fall of 2017.
