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 sound for great price!

  • 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.

Low end product has a lot to be desired

Gerardo M. Foncerrada "Unsatisfied", Amazon
28 December 2008
  • 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 Box System

D. Yanashot "DAY", Amazon
28 December 2008
  • 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.

home theatre by yamaha

G. Shinville "old guy", Amazon
28 December 2008
  • Summary: THE SPEAKERS ARE VERY WELL MADE THE SOUND FROM THE MAINS AND SURROUNDS ARE WELL BALANCED, THE CENTER NEEDED TO BE TURNED DOWN TO KEEP THE FRONT FIELD IN BALANCE. the sub is not as well suited to the system, the volume is very hard to get correct from program source to source. The other parts and wiring were excellent. The amp runs at good volume at 30%.

Looks and works great; useability needs work

Dan Alwood "null terminator", Amazon
27 December 2008
  • 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).

Sounds fantastic...and looks good doing it.

Prakash Surendra, Amazon
26 December 2008
  • Summary: I decided to go with the Yamaha 590bl after several weeks of research on Yamaha and Onkyo HTIBs in the 300 to 600 price range. I was a little apprehensive as there weren't too many reviews to be found on this particular model, but seeing and hearing it at one of the local electronic stores convinced me.

Great HT system

H. Switalski "Hubo", Amazon
25 December 2008
  • Summary: I wanted a nice sound system to compliment my Sony 40-inch LCD screen. Originally I purchased Onkyo 3100, however, it did not have any HDMI connections and it would cause the video to stutter on programs in HD. I wanted the Onkyo 5100 but the speakers were simply enormous. I decided to go with Yamaha YHT-590 because of the receiver and the slim looking speakers. The installation took about 45 minutes as I had to cut and splice the thin looking wire (18 gauge).
