Yamaha YSP-40D review

21 January 2009
  • Conclusion: If you can stomach the high price, this soundbar delivers a truly superb one-speaker audio experience. With a solid, heavyweight case and multiple drivers projecting the various channels around your room, sound is both powerful and precise, leading to a brilliantly involving audio experience. The added bonus of great connectivity means you can also use the bar as a hub for all your audiovisual gear, including games consoles, set-top boxes and DVD/Blu-ray players. Nice.
  • Pros: Yamaha’s years of experience have seemingly been put to good use with the YSP-40D. It produces the most convincing surround sound effect of any of the models we’ve tested, with clear dialogue from the centre and crisp, well-placed multichannel effects. It also has a fantastic array of connections, including two HDMI inputs that allow you to hook up a Blu-ray player or next-gen games console.
  • Cons: It’s expensive, firstly. So unless you’re prepared to sell a lung, you’re probably best looking elsewhere. Also, the bar’s size and weight could prove an issue for some users. At the same time there’s no requirement for a separate subwoofer – it’s an option if you wish to add extra bass (and spend even more money…).

  • Excerpt: That surround sound adds another dimension to your enjoyment of movies is indisputable. Problem is, it also injects a helluva lot of speaker boxes into your living space.
