Excerpt: effortless set-up ... mounted unit in a tough room - one side open to another room, the other side a kitchen area with a diffuse 'wall'. The subwoofer not real ideally placed either, but ... ran the auto cal and ta-da, it sounds great.
Summary: Considering the nature of the Yamaha YSP 3300 as a soundbar, I think the surround effect is quite remarkable. Setup was easy enough, the sound quality is very good on movie/TV programs. The stereo music quality is pretty good but movies are the vehicle through which this really shines.
Pros: For limited space an excellent choice. Setup pretty simple. Good ergonomics Good surround effects
Excerpt: I just love it.Great for tv Great with my receiver(also Yamaha). Great sound and music. I waited 2 months before buying because there is not much of a reviews.I took the risk and I'm very happy with it No problem with setup,but I will need couple of hours to reset it manualy because of a add room...
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: The sound bar has a great sound and the wireless sub is efficient. Unfortunantely, when using HDMI cables only the sound bar does not always handshake very well with my TV and DVR. This causes the sound bar to lock up and do nothing. This is a bummer and I am not too happy.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Bought to replace an ageing 5.1 surround system with separate speakers, to try and save space and improve sound quality over an old unit. Very happy with the sound from this, obviously not quite the same surround effect as a system with speakers behind you but creates a good surround effect...
Pros: no trailing wires , loads of ports (hmdi optical coax etc) , simple to set up , excellent sound quality , saves space vs traditional surround system
Cons: soundbar is quite large (wide) , nothing much!
