Summary: When i first saw this system at frys i was very impressed with all that is came with right out of the box. The thing i liked the most was that the sub woofer was independently powered straight to the wall, which leaves the rest of the 600 watts to be delivered through the rest of the speakers.
Summary: This is the best sound system my family and I have heard, my brother has a Bose system, even he says it is great and complains about how much money he spent for his system. When the speakers are place in its proper location,you can hear every instrument and sound.
Summary: I've had this system for a little over a month now, and I just love it. The speaker wire that comes in the box is as flimsy as other reviews have said, but that's par for the course with ALL electronics. The speakers are small and unobtrusive and deliver great sound.
Summary: I was looking for a small system for my master bedroom. Thought I'd be buying something cheapo until I discovered the YHT-150. I never thought I'd get Yamaha quality for such a low price. I have not been disappointed. It has plenty of inputs, looks handsome, and the sound is great.
Summary: I had been looking for a $200 - $300 receiver for a while, looking at Sony and Panasonic mostly. I needed new speakers, but already had a DVD player, Xbox, VCR, Cable and TV. When we were in Best Buy, we found this set for a little over $300 (inc tax), and picked itup.
Summary: I bought this system without hearing it first, because I already own a great Yamaha AVR and Yamaha subwoofer that is mated with Bose 401s and KLH center/surrounds. I thought that Yamaha would have good quality and I wasn't interested in spending allot of money for a second HTS.
Summary: The Yamaha YHT-150 home theater is a superb surround sound system. Before I bought it I tried a used all-in-one Panasonic system and was extremely disappointed (returned it the next day due to multiple problems).
Summary: I agree with other reviews regarding the speaker cables--replace them from the beginning (I used 16-gauge). One reviewer spoke positively about the subwoofer having a signal input sensor that turns the subwoofer on/off automatically. The subwoofer that came with my system does not have that.
Summary: First, the system is Silver, not the advertised BLACK. Second, the speaker wires are very poor (as previously noted)and should be replaced with better gauge if you wish to use the system in any room outside of a closet. With that said, the system has a decent cost/performance ratio.
