Virtual surround sound on a budget -- with a catch

CNET
15 December 2013
  • 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.
  • 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 as systems with a separate sub.

Virtual surround sound on a budget -- with a catch

CNET
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. There's also onboard decoding for both Dolby Digital and DTS. And its budget price is far below Yamaha's other Digital Sound Projector sound bars.
  • 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 as systems with a separate sub.

Expert Review

18 December 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Stor og fyldig lyd, Dynamik, Brugervenlig, Subwoofer-udgang
  • Cons: Begrænset bas uden subwoofer
