Summary: ot the full NS- set when my 3rd little satellite popped. These speakers shake my house. Have had them for a year now no problems. I thought these were great when I bought them, but just found a setting in my receiver that was limiting output. Now it's better than a movie theatre. well worth the money.
Initially I had considered purchasing my speakers from Amazon but shipping them to Dubai looked like a stupid idea considering s

Summary: This review will likely help those who are new to Home Theater setup and don't know where to start. My Home Theater consists of a Sharp 60" LEDTV, Samsung BD-F5100 Blu Ray player, Yamaha RX-V577 receiver, pair of NS-777s and NS-333 and a NS-444. The sub is a YST-SW216. All purchased locally in Dubai. This is my first Home Theater and I did my research for nearly 3 months before finally diving in.
Summary: I teamed this center speaker with a Sony DN1030 multi-media receiver, two old Magnat column speakers, two old Pioneer background speakers, and a Yamaha YST-SW012 8-Inch Front-Firing Active Subwoofer (see my other review) - Yamaha makes superior stereo equipment, and this center speaker system is perfect for my needs. Excellent finish - piano black gloss on top and sides. Great value for the money!
Summary: I selected C444 based on price, specs and sense of the reviews that were available to me. Of course being a Yamaha product I fully expected the product to be superior. Well, Yamaha did not fail. Since I have absolutely no experience with center channel speakers my expectations were really low. Now, I know better. Clear and crisp with a rather broad frequency range makes this speaker a great buy. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
Summary: Do not skimp on a center channel as that is probably the most important part of a Home Theater System. This is obviously not a " High End " center speaker, but for the price it almost cannot be beat. Sound quality from this speaker is exceptional, build quality is what I expect from Yamaha, and the finish is high quality as well.
