Summary: Unable to power it up when I set it up, have to send it to Yamaha Singapore to repair. According to them they have to replace the fuse. Ended up paying $120 more. Wonder if Amazon can reimburse me?
Summary: Paid $800 and purchased this a few months. Have been having intermittent issues, and it finally died today. Don't waste your money on this. Cannot return to Amazon since it is well over 30 days and nobody even picks up the phone at Yamaha support. Very disappointing.
Summary: The sub-woofer on this system isn't wireless in spite of the description. I was very disappointed, since I've had a good experience with the YAS 101 soundbar and YST-FSW050 wired sub-woofer. I wanted something similar from Yamaha at a reasonable price point that had a wireless sub-woofer, but this isn't it. Went with a Polk Audio 9000 soundbar IHT and I'm thoroughly impressed.
Summary: I was hoping for a more out of the box plug and play experience, but the sound was hollow and echo-ish, probably because of the odd and long rectangle shaped room, and I didn't feel like spending a huge amount of time to re-tune the balance and fades to accommodate for the shape. I did play with some of the pre-sets, to see if any would "fix" the problem, but they all seemed to have the same issues.
Summary: This is a reasonable solution if you want to dispense with lots of cables, stands and speakers (like me) but I found it's no substitute for these. The surround sound doesn't sound surround, like the advertising blurb says. Instead the stereo L and R sounds are at about 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock and the surround ones are at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock.
Summary: This is a strange setup, the soundbar has a line of small tweeters and the other box (what you would think is a subwoofer) has two bigger speakers. When I was listening to it I could clearly hear the two separate sound sources - regular sounds from the bigger speaker, high pitched sounds from the sound bar.
