Review For Yamaha YSP-4000

Eric Setter, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • 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.

Nice unit, nice sound, nice but not great

Bryan Grady "A Seeker", Amazon
24 November 2010
  • 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.

Worked for me

Alan P., Newegg
10 July 2010
  • Pros: Easy to install and did so quickly. Good sound but not as good as it sounded at a stereo store. Looks nice.
  • Cons: As above, sounds good but not nearly as good as it did at a stereo store. Surround sound is better if you do not mind running the wires.

Works

Cheng-Yang T., Newegg
17 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought this unit at $799 ( the coupon discount wasn't available when I bought it which brought the price down to $679) and it is worth the price. I wouldn't pay more for it.
  • Pros: The sound projection effect is definitely there. Sounds much better than the speakers from my HDTV. Service support is excellent. I had a question about my Blu-ray player not recognizing the Yamaha as a 5.1 Dolby digital device but the Yamaha was decoding 5.1 and outputting 5.1 sound. Reply was q...
  • Cons: Although I'm going to list a number of cons here, I am satisfied with the purchase. (1) Does not do Blu-Ray Dolby TrueHD. (2) Bass is weak. Definitely needs powered subwoofer. (3) Room geometry is critical. There *must* be walls to bounce off in order to have the sound projection effect. (4) Labe...

nice speakers

jerry k., Newegg
8 May 2010
  • Summary: even though i can't make out the rear audio as well as I would like I can't complain to much because my alternative was to punch-out holes on my walls which I didn't look forward to doing. I'm also not an audiophile so my perspective comes from a person with little to average knowledge of audio.
  • Pros: good speakers. easy to setup. audio sounds good. can definitely makes out the front left and right audio but not so much of the rear. like the audio beaming feature for times when I want to watch a movie but don't want to disturb others or when the dishwasher is on. Based on online reviews Yamaha...
  • Cons: In order for the speaker bar to work correctly the room needs to be the right shape with little objects in the way. for me, my family is next to the kitchen with cabinets and etc. i think this deminishes the rear audio capability of the speaker bar.

Rock n Roll

Kindle Customer "Steve", Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: Bought the sound bar a month ago now and have been thoroughly happy with it. Sound is great, easy to set-up. As a relative novice audiophile I wanted something that was easy and looked good - last thing I wanted was to drill holes run cables and pay someone to have to redecorate.

Amazing Sound From 1 Speaker

Sunnys Day, Amazon
17 May 2008
  • Summary: Quite frankly I could not tell surround sound from plain old TV sounds and was pointed in the direction of the Yamaha YSP4000 by a total tech geek. I had a large room and was not up for ripping up walls to install speakers nor did I want cables running all over the place.

  • Excerpt: Не нужно надеяться на чудо при покупке этого агрегата. Он отражает звуки от стен комнаты, если у вас комната неправильной формы, звук будет рассеиваться. В первый раз когда включил чуть не расплакался - не то что сурраунда, просто стерео слышно не было.
  • Pros: Отличное звучание - чистый и ясный звук, приятные мягкие басы, нет необходимости в ресивере, действительно объемный звук, 2 hdmi-входа, программируемый пульт, отличный внешний вид, есть апскейл аналогового сигнала до 1080i.
  • Cons: Басы для кино слабоваты - кто любит чтобы дрожали стекла от взрывов, расстроится, правда можно подключить отдельный. Всего 2 hdmi входа. Отсутствие SCART входов (расстроило). Говорят что не проигрывает True-HD audio, специально не пробовал, но проблем ни с чем пока не было. Немного странно срабат...
