Yamaha is a huge company that manufactures a wide diversity of products. Some of you might be familiar with their musical instruments, of which they are amongst the world’s largest, producing anything from pianos and guitars to saxophones.

While others might be more accustomed to Yamaha being a manufacturer of motorcycles. In fact, Yamaha is the world’s second largest manufacturer of motorcycles behind Honda. And in the 2008 MotoGP season, the amazing Valentino Rossi raced a Yamaha YZR-M1 and won the championship by a record margin.

Yamaha’s expertise with motoring doesn’t end there. Case in point is the amazing Lexus LFA supercar, because when developing cylinder heads for the LFA’s V10 powerplant, it was Yamaha whom Toyota turned to.

Also, did you know Yamaha used to make bows for archers? Amazingly, Six archers in five different Olympic Games won gold medals using their products.

The Yamaha TSX-130 aims to be the all-in-one desktop companion for music lovers.

Recently, the company has been making forays into the world of consumer electronics with their range of award-winning soundbars, and now, to further bolster their ranks of consumer electronics is the TSX-130. Positioned as a desktop audio system, the TSX-130 combines an iPod/iPhone dock with a traditional CD player, USB flash drive playback and FM radio in a neat and compact system.
