Summary: requires a lot of wires considering it is supposed to be for stream lining your home theatre. no hdmi big negative in this day and age. spectacular sound quality though. just depends whats important to you.
Summary: For those who want their house to sound like a true movie theater, this may not be the system for you. What I can say is I have no desire to run wires to the back of the room for rear speakers and this sound projecter kept me from doing so.
Summary: I really like this sound system in my room. The surround function works well when I have all my doors and drapes closed. The My Beam function is very useful because I like to play the TV loud and not bother the other people in the house.
Summary: This is a great product! It performs as advertised and I am very pleased with my purchase. It is a great improvement over my standard TV speakers. Having said that, it's performance is definitely enhanced by being hooked up to my existing subwoofer.
Summary: A sterling performer with unbelievable and varied output. Wish it came with HDMI outputs. Setup could be easier and not by discovering ways to set up.All in all excellent valuable addition to my home theater room constrained by space.- Herbie
Summary: We wanted to add big sound to our new HD TV but didn't want to run wires under the carpeting (or hire someone to go into baseboards and walls). So, when we heard the Yamaha digital sound projector the first time we knew it was a winner.
If looks are more important than surround sound...

Summary: ....then buy this enclosure. I have it and like it, but frankly the sound dosen't seem to come from anywhere but right in front of me (no side, rear etc). However given my displeasure at looking at my old setup (5.1, sub, speaker stands, wires all over)I've got to say I don't mind.
Excerpt: What HiFi gave this a 5 star rating with good reason. Its an impressive piece of kit and now that it has come down in price, offers a real alternative to load of speakers around the room. This is why I bought one.
Pros: No need for 5 speakers and cables . Really does work !
