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 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: I use this in my master bedroom which is 25 ft deep and 37 ft wide with high vaulted ceiling. I purchased this unit to replace a YSP-1000 as it had added the HDMI switching, 3D pass thru, and takes in the HD audio bitstreams. Sound detail is much better and coupled with a 12 inch Polk sub it is an excellent sounding system (the 1000 it replaced was no slouch either but it took months to set it up so it sounded proper) this unit set up easily and is a real workhorse!
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
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.
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: This thing is amazing, can't believe you hear sound next to you and behind you even though there aren't speakers there. Add a Yamaha subwoofer, you will be glad you did. The sound does noticeably cut out if there is any momentary degradation of the audio signal.
