Summary: I have had sony-ht-ct150 for more than a year. though I enjoyed that system, I thought it was lacking something. It was loud enough but it was not a quality sound. Since I use sound system mainly for watching movies in blu ray, I have decided to invest little more this time.
Excerpt: I have always been a big fan of all Yamaha products but their speakers. I decided to take a chance on this sound bar after reading some reviews of it on other sites. I have not been disappointed, the sound is clear, the bass is strong and it looks beautiful.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass
Summary: My old system was a 7.1 system with 7 speakers plus sub. In the new house no way to string speaker wires for surround and back wall speakers. Had an earlier model Yamaha sound bar. It was adequate but wanted a little more.
Summary: We wanted a surround experience without the cords. This is for a tv mounted above a fireplace. Projection speakers are sitting on the fireplace mantel. Set-up was easy and sound much better than the TV.
Summary: Best soundbar with computer driven controls for the money and you can adjust the sound to your taste. Only my Yamaha YSP-1100 sounds better (it has twice as many speakers and cost twice as much). Most soundbars do not let you adjust the base and treble.
Summary: This sound projector is great, I am still surprised when I hear sounds coming off the walls. ONLY cons: Sub woofer while being very portable lacks power because of its size, this issue can easily be corrected because the sub woofer is not hard wired.
