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

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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!!!
