What product?

No sound, Amazon
24 March 2009
  • Summary: I never received the Home Theater system. UPS lost it the day it was supposed to be delivered. Maybe some else is enjoying my home theater. Why would you ask me to review a product that was lost and you canceled the order?

Great system.

M. Lara, Amazon
6 March 2009
  • Summary: For the price, it's a great HTIB system (I got mine for $400). The sound is very good (better than my old Panasonic system). The only con is probably that the AUX port is in the front and that there is only one. Otherwise, it's perfect for our needs.

Looks and works great; useability needs work

Dan Alwood "null terminator", Amazon
24 February 2009
  • Summary: Looks more expensive than it is. 600 watts in my large living room is plenty powerful. Essentially, Yamaha just took existing off-the-shelf components (receiver, woofer, and speakers) and packaged them as an HTIB. Even though it's all in one, big box, everything has it's own separate documentation. Documentation is written by engineers, for engineers. Plan to spend plenty of time studying and trying things (unless, of course, you're an A/V engineer).

Worth Every Penny!

Thomas Martin "sonomatom", Amazon
23 February 2009
  • Summary: I am more than pleased with this integrated home theater system from Yahama. The receiver is considered 'basic' but it's many audio setup features more than met my requirements (the passive HDMI is disappointing, but not a deal breaker). The sound for both DVDs and my classical music is better than I expected for a unit at this price and size. In fact, the sound is pretty amazing! A great value.

Low end product has a lot to be desired

Gerardo M. Foncerrada "Unsatisfied", Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: I had problems with the above YHT590BL from the moment I received. They substituted the AV receiver with a RX-V363, instead of the HTR-6130BL. When I change from the radio tuner to the TV, the volume blast the roof off. The woofer needs to be manually turned off every time. I contacted Yamaha to see if these problems could be corrected. I received an e-mail to contact a Customer Service Technician. I did as instructed and found this to be a worthless experience.

Awesome system

Chivate "Pramod", Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this system in December for my home theatre with projector. The system was very easy to set up -- got it up and running in less than 1 hour. Awesome sound quality. Pros: Easy to set up, great sound, pre-set scenes for ease of use Cons: Speaker wires are little short (was not enough for my basement), does not upconvert to HDMI

Awesome Box System

D. Yanashot "DAY", Amazon
1 February 2009
  • Summary: I am very satisfied with my Yamaha YHT-590BL Home Theater in a Box. It sounds great! Only one aspect threw me off when I was setting it up. Please be aware of this. You cannot use only HDMI connections for the audio. It is only a pass-through system. See the box with the asterisk after the HDMI logo. You have to purchase separate optical audio cables to hear the audio with HDMI. This was no big deal once I read the instructions in detail. In all, I love this system.

Great sound for great price!

K. Gupta, Amazon
24 January 2009
  • Summary: The system looks very nice and sounds great!! The only con I can think of which is a bit of an incovinience is that it only has two digital audio output. However I am extremely satisfied with the purchase and would highly recommend it for anyone looking to buy it.

Home Theater

John K. Rawlins, Amazon
14 January 2009
  • Summary: Yamaha YHT-590BL Home Theater in a Box (Black) I have this sound system working on a 91 inch Samsung DLP and it is wonderful. It took a little help from a son to get it connected. Everyone's situation requires different connections and all of them are not covered in the instructions. So it takes a little expermenting and figuring out. But the sound is wonderful.
