Summary: We have had this item several years and it is fantastic. Easy to set up and use. we are using it in our living room/ dining combo room with the living room on the left side and the intelli-beam had no problem directing the sound properly.
Summary: Purchased this unit over a year ago and I am very impressed by the quality of the product. There are 40 some speakers and it creates virtual surround sound. I've pushed this thing to the limit and it still works. I would recommend using the TOS LINK or Fiberoptic audio input for better sound.
Summary: Hello everyone. Let me start by saying that this is one of the best pieces of sonic hardware out there for those of you that do not either want to run wires, or for whatever reason can not do a traditional 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 set up.
Summary: Brilliant! Have purchased (and returned), other products that pretend to deliver (simulated or true) surround sound, 5.1. The Yamaha YSP is the only product to deliver. None, on the market contain the achieved, high technology, with presence that this unit delivers.
Summary: But, you will want to get an outboard subwoofer to complete the package. I added the Yamaha YST-SW215 subwoofer to complete the bottom end. The proof was when I invited friends over to watch a good sound driven DVD telling them that the main home theatre system in the basement theatre was being used...
Summary: Comments about Yamaha YSP1100 Speaker System: AMAZING SOUND. REALLY FELLL IN LOVE WITH THIS ONE. ESPECIALLY THE 5 BEAM SETTING. I LOVE THE NEW CIRCUITRY IN THE ULTRASONE PROLINE HEADPHONES. WITH 5 BEAM ON IT IS A VERY SIMILAR EFFECT.
Pros: Attractive Design, Crisp Sound, Easy To Connect, Great Sound Quality, Powerful
Summary: System works great. As others have said, system position is key because if you're missing a side wall for a kitchen you're 5.1 might sound less. Still I have that problem and it sounds great. I love playing video games and watching tv while my wife sleeps without disturbance.
Summary: Comments about Yamaha YSP1100 Speaker System: We have an odd shaped living room, but wanted surround/ higher quality sound to go with the LCD TV. This is an amazing unit, providing high quality sound within minutes of unpacking it thanks to the auto calibration feature.
Pros: Clear sound, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Summary: While not as impressive as the surround sound room upstairs, it makes an excellent compliment to any TV (46" Sony XBR Bravia in this case) in a room that you do not wish to fill with speakers. Add a sub-woofer, and the sound is excellent!
