Yamaha Debuts HTiB Systems
Yamaha's AV division Monday announced the introduction of five new home theater in a box (HTiB) systems, all of which sport front panel USB ports.
The YHT-497BL (MSRP $479.95) and YHT-397BL (MSRP $449.95) will be available this month, with the YHT-897BL (MSRP $849.95), YHT-797BL (MSRP $799.95), YHT-597BL (MSRP $649.95) arriving in May. The latter three feature AirPlay-capable receivers.
“Normally, the purchase of an HTiB system is a value or convenience play. Yamaha ups the ante by delivering high performance and adding features usually reserved for high-end separate components,” Tom Sumner, senior vice-president, Yamaha Corporation of America, said in a statement.
