Yamaha YSP-1400 Digital Sound Projector

23 April 2014
  • 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

Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1400

20 February 2014
  • 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 ...

Yamaha YSP-1400 Review

1 January 2014
  • 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

Yamaha YSP-1400 Digital Sound Projector Review

27 November 2013
  • 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

Yamaha YSP-1400

3 April 2014
  • Summary: Mit dem YSP-1400 können Sie TV- und Filmton wie mit einem „echten“ Mehrkanalset erleben. Obendrein ist der Soundprojektor eine prima Mini- HiFi-Anlage mit guten klanglichen Qualitäten.

Yamaha YSP-1400

11 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Malgré sa relative petite taille, le projecteur / barre de son Yamaha YSP-1400 propose un son puissant et enveloppant (avec son effet surround). Il a parfois un petit penchant pour les aigus.
  • Pros: ampleur du son, puissance des basses pour un si petit volume, répétiteur IR, Bluetooth.
  • Cons: aigus parfois "trop" préssents.

Hardwaretest: Yamaha YSP-1400 – die preiswerte All-in-One-Lösung

8 February 2014
  • 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.
