Fantastic sound for a soundbar. A few quirks.

  • Summary: I bought the Yamaha YSP-4100 a couple of years back at a ridiculous open-box price at a local store. I was looking for something relatively clean and simple to improve the sound of our Sony 52" LCD television, and my old surround receiver just was not up to the newer stuff. But I wasn't sure I wanted to spend hundreds or thousands on a new surround receiver or wire up 4-7 speakers in our open living room.

great soundbar when matched with subwoofer

  • Summary: If you don't have the space for a 5.1 or 7.1 system then this is one of the better options available. It has the option for auto set-up or manual set-up if you prefer. But to get the best sound you really need to match with a good subwoofer. I bought the Yamaha YST-SW315 subwoofer and have no regrets. It matches very well.

Great sound. But not 3D ready

Harold Koslowski, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • Summary: Great sound. But the box says it's 3D ready. When turning on my sound system it indicated Firmware vers 5x.... Which needs to be upgraded to 7x... to allow 3D display and audio. The only way to upgrade the firmware is to get a CD of the firmware and connect through an optical cable using a CD player. Or bring it to an authorized dealer. Irritating to say the least.

Got what I was expecting overall with decent sound and quality

  • Summary: I was looking for a soundbar with HDMI switching and support for 5.1+ audio. Many soundbars have one but not the other. This one seemed to fit the bill and Yamaha products have been good to me in the past so I jumped on it. Overall comments: Pros: - HDMI Switching - 5.1/7.1 Surround Sound support - Autocalibration seems to work pretty well - Soundfield is good overall for surround sound (limited by your environment - see below) - Wireless Subwoofer support along with...

Easy to use and decent sound.

  • Summary: I have had the YAMAHA YSP-4100 for about 2 months now and yes it's a little expensive. By it's self it's ok. Hook up a sub woofer to it and it really comes to life.Is it as good as a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound NO. But it is close and with the ease of installation it was a good pick for me.

Amazing Product

  • Summary: Amazing product. Replaces all of the box speakers. Capable of truly enveloping sound, depending upon program material. Relys on room and placement therein. My room/placement is horrible, but it still performs well. Also replaces the receiver. Needs to pair with a good subwoofer though. User interface could be better; not terribly intuitive and "green screen" in appearance. All in all, a sophisticated and impressive system.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quality Construction

Does what I want, but a bit pricey

ABT Electronics
15 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a 2.0 audio setup for a 37" LCD TV that is placed in a very irregularly shaped room. I added my own non-Yamaha subwoofer, as this unit doesn't provide deep low end and the Yamaha subs were under-powered for the room I'm in. I knew ahead of time that without a sensible room shape, I wouldn't get close to "real" surround sound, but what I do get is a very deep and detailed, wide sound stage.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Bulky

  • Summary: För en modern 50" TV är denna att föredra då den större YSP-5100 är för bred. Har man en äldre 50" plasma så kanske 5100 passar bättre. Ljudet är bra från YSP-4100 även om jag kan tycka att den är något väl nedtonad. Hade en YSP-800 innan och den hade mer attityd om man säger så. Har man inte gott om plats bakom sittplatsen så blir det inte mycket till surroundeffekt. Ljudbilden är bred och med en matchande subwoofer låter det stort. Högkvalitativa källor som t.ex.
