Conclusion: The YSP-1400 is the latest addition to Yamaha’s well received line of sound projectors. $449.95 doesn’t just buy a quality sound bar for listening to audio coming from straight ahead, but adds surround through the clever application of “bouncing” discrete audio streams off of walls and back to the...
Pros: Dialogue enhancement, Can learn the TVs remote
Cons: Audio adjustments can vary widely depending on the room's configuration
Summary: Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.
Pros: The Yamaha YSP-1400 sound bar features the company's Digital Sound Projector technology that bounces sound off the walls in your room to create credible virtual surround sound. The system has built-in Bluetooth and an IR repeater, so it won't block your signals from your TV's remote control. Ther...
Cons: Getting a true surround sound signal to the YSP-1400 can be difficult. While it does sound more spacious than a standard sound bar, it doesn't match the true virtual surround magic of Yamaha's pricier sound bars. And the lack of an external subwoofer means bass won't be quite as deep or powerful ...
Summary: If you’re looking for the best sound bar to pair with your TV, the Yamaha YSP 1400 is at the top of the class. It effectively simulates surround sound thanks to its 5.1 channels and omnidirectional speakers.
Pros: This sound bar has a rich, realistic sound and 5.1 channels for maximum performance.
Cons: The design is a little bulky, so it may get in the way of your TV remote sensor.
Conclusion: Yamaha’s YSP-1400 Sound Projector delivers a bevy of features, an immersive soundstage, and great detail. The audio settings are fully configurable, and the system offers a lot of punch, without the need for a subwoofer sidecar.
Pros: Good clarity and detail, Deep bass response for a stand-alone unit, Dimensional sound stage, Highly configurable audio settings
Cons: Can get too aggressive in the treble, Not ideal for music playback, No ARC connection/trouble with programming our TV remote
Summary: Yamaha has tried to bring the consumer their vaunted beaming technology at a low price point. This is a great idea but the simple fact is that it has to work. I've heard many Yamaha surround soundbars in my life - both in my home and at tradeshows - and I've consistently been impressed.
Pros: App Control, Enough inputs, Subwoofer output, Bluetooth works well, IR Pass Through for Blocked TV IR Receivers
Cons: Sibilant, Even in optimal room, surround effect unconvincing, Wall mounting may look a little goofy, Bass light, Weak stereo separation
Hardwaretest: Yamaha YSP-1400 – die preiswerte All-in-One-Lösung

Conclusion: Aber für wen eignet sich eigentlich ein Soundprojektor? Was unterscheidet diesen von einer Soundbar und welche Voraussetzungen müssen für echten Raumklang geschaffen sein? Aktuelle TV bieten zwar ein exzellentes Bild, aber aufgrund flacher Bauweise nur einen dürftigen Ton.
Excerpt: Yamaha YSP-1400 mangler display, men det løses med fjernbetjenings-app’en HT Controller til iOS og Android, som giver et godt overblik på mobilen via Bluetooth. Med sine 100 cm i længden passer den til skærme fra omkring 46 tommer og opad.
