Buy the 5000 Series unit.. get insurance on your purchase.
10 February 2013
Summary: So far the experience has not been good. The HDMI switching between high and low definition channels does not synchronize leaving the screen distorted until I change the inpute more to AUX2 and then back again to Aux1.
Summary: After my YSP-1 blew out I spent about 3 weeks searching for a comparable replacement. I was able to buy this product "slightly used" for half the retail value. I was skeptical, thinking there must be a catch. The item arrived and was in perfect condition.
Summary: It's takes a bit of tweaking and a good subwoofer. Do the automatic thingy and then go back and tweak it yourself, you will be amazed. So will your friends, everyone is always amazed with this thing. I have it paird with a Velodine sub and it is incredible even after 3 years. :)
Summary: This projection sound system was purchased 2 years ago for a large "hard" room (30x40'). Despite repeated tuning, TV and movie dialog always sounded muddled - music and sound effects are great, but dialog is difficult to understand.
Summary: Good: -Great simulated sound -Good alternative to wiring several speakers for surround sound -Soundbar correctly switches sound (cable box to ps3 or vice versa) when I change HDMI source on the televsion.
Summary: This unit provides decent sound. But, don't kid yourself, it does not give you the equivalent of 5 speakers and a subwoofer. But, I (more importantly, my wife) love the fact that I don't have wires running all around the room, with four speakers hogging up floor space.
Summary: pros: - best simulated surround for the money & space - looks good - price (the price has dropped significantly since its original release making the current price a bargain. - easy setup cons: - additional cost for mounting brackets - no sub-woofer included - 2 hdmi inputs (great for a simple setup...
