Summary: I have owned a Yamaha sound bar for quite some time now. I bought this to upgrade for more HDMI inputs. Its perfect. Looks super slick and works much better. There is no more 5 beam, 3 beam constant choices. Just surround and stereo. Nice and simple. One note is that you need a particular kind of furniture to support an object of this size and width.
Summary: We had an earlier model of the Yamaha sound projector for many years, a YSP 1000 and had always been satisfied. When recently deciding to upgrade to a larger HDTV we elected to upgrade the Yamaha as well.
Summary: I had the ysp/ upgraded to the 4100 BL -- LISTEN: the movie theater CANT TOUCH U -- this is a MUST HAVE--let R2D2 (the mic) calibrate the room and BOOM-- I put in the LIVE M.jackson in wembley change the setting to concert hall it put me like I was THERE--Jurassic Park part 3 w/ a good subwoofer they were N my livin room--NO complaints about this sound projection
Summary: The Yamaha YSp-4100BL is everything that it's review claimed it is. Far superior to the other less expensive competitive sound bar models in construction and performance. In this case, "You get what you pay for!".
Best single bar surround sound speaker on the planet

Summary: I've tried many others, this is the best. Once calibrated its unreal how real this sounds. You can also use it as your receiver so it eliminates clutter in the room. Even better when paired with a Yamaha sub.
Summary: I recently purchased the YSP-4100 from another vendor for $1,159 plus $41 for shipping and no sales tax; by far less than anywhere else. If it had been $1,699 or manufacturer's list of $1,899, I would not have been able to swing it budget wise although I think it is worth it. I had been looking at the 2200 and 3300 models for around the same price or less but I really wanted the 42 speakers versus the 18 speakers of the lower end models.
Summary: I just received the YSP 4100 from our dealer (had to order it in) it was installed on our new home theater room and the set up was incredibly easy. Upgrade the firmware. Plug it in, put in the YPAO microphone, press set up and walk out of the room. The sound bar did the rest. I have a full 7.1 Yamaha sound system in my game room and honestly, If YOU can tell a difference in sound quality, you are simply too picky.
Summary: We've used real 5.1 and 7.1 sound systems for years but we moved and didn't want to run wires again or go to ceiling speakers. This is a definite step up from the "sound projectors" that are just glorified stereo speakers. It's like a combination A/V receiver and virtual speaker set all in one box. I used my old (but still excellent) Velodyne 375W powered subwoofer with the wireless connection provided with the YSP-4100 and the wireless works just fine.
