Placement is Key

  • Summary: Much better than the Sony (HTC-100) soundbar I had. Deeper sound and better voice reproduction. Placement is important; make sure it is centered in the room.

Not your typical Yamaha

tr, Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: Yamaha has usually meant higher quality to me, but the YSP 1400 fails to provide this. Dialogue is clearer than the Samsung I previously used, but the highly touted surround effects fail miserably. I have the ideal size room, and have tweaked, and re-tweaked, with no appreciable results. For surround sound, this is slightly more than a $400.00 paper weight. The inexpensive Vizio provides much better surround sound.

Good Quality Sound in a small package

DP "Puma", Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: It took less than 10 minutes to hook up this Yamaha to my Sony TV. I did have a digital optical port on the TV and the setup was a snap. Having the YSP learn the TV remote codes took about 3 minutes. Very easy. Paired it with my blue tooth capable music box and it was playing music without a hitch. Very, very easy. The sound quality is very nice. Doesn't feel like surround sound but still much nicer than the TV speakers.

Disappointing.

JHill, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: After reading many reviews I purchased this, and am extremely disappointed in the sound. Without an additional sub-woofer (which I added), it added NEXT TO NOTHING over the 44" flat screen's own speakers. Save the money and buy an integrated set with its own sub-woofer.

  • Summary: I have been looking at sound bars for a while. I saw this one at Installations Unlimited and the sales person hooked it up to one of their tv's and I fell in love with it. It is very easy to hook up and uses so much less space than a home theater uses and sounds just as good.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

very nice and clean

  • Summary: The bass is not as sharp as a component audio system, but delivers enough to make an impact. The preset speaker modes are nice and easy to use. Thought the LED indicators would be insufficient but they actually are more than enough. The remote is simple and clean. The lack for a need of a separate sub makes this the most enticing soundbar from my perspective. There's also a mounting guide for drilling holes if you need to mount it on the wall.
  • Pros: all in one, clean, simple, bluetooth works well with iphone 5 and samsung galaxy s3
  • Cons: no hdmi input
