Yamaha Design “Synapses” SRT-1000
A TV surround system offering realistic sound in a casual setting.
The SRT-1000 features a design that balances the feel of both audio equipment and interior design, connecting the worlds of TV and home furnishing by blending into the surroundings without looking out of place.
The exterior of the SRT-1000 is a representation of the sound beams emitted by digital sound projectors. Yamaha's identity as a manufacturer of sound equipment is evident in the relaxed, casual feel of this product.
The SRT-1000 blends inconspicuously into home interiors, all the while making a visual statement with the thin design and presence that are characteristics of a sound projector.
The hairline finish on the body of the SRT-1000 is a result of the need for the product to blend well as a home interior product on a rack or with the TV, while at the same time emphasizing its identity as a high-end audio product.
