Summary: The unit we received was defective so I cannot attest to the sound quality, but if I had known that the HDMI did not pass the sound to the amp then I would not have ordered the unit. You must use additional cables to connect the sound which precludes the HDMI automation when your switching inputs. So I opted for the 591 model instead. (491 model does not pass sound through the HDMI either). RMA service was excellent.
Summary: Yamaha YHT-391BL Home Theater in a Box (Black) I purchased this equipment together and got a great "Home Theater System". I am a Nursing student, and work-full time. When work and school are done the only thing I feel like doing is watching a movie in the comfort of my home. Bravo! Yamaha, and thank you Amazon.com for making it possible........
Summary: Great sound when properly customized to your viewing environment. Love how specific you can be with your EQ settings and individual tone! There is a slight delay (but probably because I'm sitting far from the source and haven't fixed the setting) Other than that, a great system and clean, true, full sound for movies, TV, and music!
Summary: At a time when most similar systems cost between $500 and $1000 or more, this is a good quality and very affordable alternative. Every component arrived in good working order and system was easily set up and connected to our HD TV. One minor complaint is that the power button is not an On/Off toggle, and could not be set up to work from our cable remote. I was unable to find the Code for either the On or the Off function.
Summary: This was my first home theater system, connected to a Blu-Ray player and 50" Plasma TV. I went in to Best Buy planning to buy a HTIB from Sony or Samsung, driven by the included Blu-Ray player. The salesman convinced me pretty quickly that in the long run I would be much better off having a system that was upgradable, with a dedicated receiver as the power source.
Summary: We were delighted with this home theater system. The amplifier sounds awesome as well as the speakers. The hook up was simple -- instructions very easy to follow. We were able to hook-up all our components!!
Summary: Love the sound system. It sounds great and the instruction book was very good. Lots of adjustments make for a great sound no matter what the source. The radio gets very good reception. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting a lower cost sound system that sounds great.
Summary: I am new to the HTiB setups. This was an excellent buy. The speakers all fairly small. I think they are as small as you can get actually. I paid 15% less than what's advertised, if you look around on bing. I noticed a lot of HTiB at this price range feature lots of power, but the power is fairly dirty, this is rated at a .06%, while others like Sony HTS3660, are rated at 10%. That's a significant difference in Total Harmonic Distortion.
Summary: This surround sound home theater system does its job. The only bad thing I have for this system is the HDMI cable not being audio compatible. Having a ps3 I connected an HDMI for video and component cables for sound... nonetheless the system still sounds great and the picture looks perfect. I have had no other issues with this system.
