Mark Wm. Nagel, Amazon

  • Summary: It worked right our of the box and sounded quite good. Next day went to turn it on and the green powere LED just blinked a few times and the unit shut off. Tried the instruction manual to reboot and did the usual 'unplug and wait 5 min before plugging in again' same issue. After several years this is the only item I have ever had to return to Amazon. I like Yamaha but think I will try and different make/model for its replacement.

Worse than TV audio

Jan Hebel, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: I've had Yamaha audio products in the last and always had the greatest respect for them...until now. I wanted a sound bar because I have a hard time hearing clear dialogue. He Yamaha featured "Clear Speech Technology" so it seemed like the perfect product. Well I couldn't have been more wrong! It sounded terrible, both with and without the subwoofer.

Did not work right out of the box

David Huynh, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this item when it was Amazon's DOTD a few weeks ago for $200. I got it 2 days later as expected being a Prime Member. The Soundbar though didn't work. It kept shutting itself off a few seconds after I'd turn it on. I promptly returned it and asked for an exchange unit. Amazon said I should receive a replacement Friday, but the replacement didn't come until the following Friday.

Really disgusted, worked for about 2 mins then went dead

Colorado Reviewer "P&S", Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: I was really looking forward to the soundbar from the reviews it received on Amazon and becasue I had a poor experience with another sound bar. Ended up being very frustrated when I plugged in the opticaol cable and wan't abloe to get soundbar to work. The optical cable definitely had siginal, it was lit up - but now sound from the soundbar. Fiddled around with it for about an hour and was able to get it to work for about 2 minutes.

  • Summary: Very disappointed that Yamaha puts it name to this product,very little bass from woofer considering it`s size,as for the main unit - I spent two days trying to get a decent sound to no avail,at £229 this is a rip off, apart from waiting nearly two weeks for delivery, dealing with the dealer was a nightmare,I would like to thank Amazon and their very efficient staff in effecting a speedy refund ( less return postage!

W-Lan Störung

Seven, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: Normalerweise bin ich kein Mensch der negativ Bewertet, aber leider bleibt es hier nicht aus. An sich ist es ein optisches schönes Gerät was zum Kauf entschieden hat. Leider Stört der Subwoofer das W-Lan, was bedeutet sobald man den Subwoofer einschaltet, ist im wahrsten sinne Funkstille. Weder Fernseher , PS3 , PC oder iPhone finden kein W-Lan mehr, weil der Subwoofer auf der gleichen Frequenz sendet.

  • Pros: Достоинство нашел только одно: обучение под любой (инфракрасный) пульт ТВ
  • Cons: Я работаю с автозвуком и могу определить играет акустика или нет. Данная акустика абсолютно не умеет воспроизводить ни чего (сабвуфер это просто мидбасс но не как не сабвуфер, сами сателлиты чють лучше родных которые с телевизорами). Короче она не стоит своих денег. Компьютерная аккустика которая стояла до них Nakatomi - исполяент в разы лучше!!!
