I am totally blown away!

Glandoc, usa.yamaha.com

  • Summary: After marriage and kids forced me to dispose of my old tube amplifier and big energy-hog speakers, I had been forced to endure average surround sound through the multiple small speakers that encircled the room where the big-screen HDTV was located. When we recently decided to redecorate that room, my wife demanded we get rid of all the "ugly" speakers on the walls that didn't match the new decor.

Outstanding Performance

Guru, usa.yamaha.com
13 July 2013
  • Summary: We added the YSP-4300 to our existing home theater setup which was in need of an upgrade. I was not interested in the challenges presented to wire the room correctly and went looking for a quality sound bar solution. The YSP-4300 more than exceeded my expectations. Connecting to cable, DVD, AppleTV, etc was easy. Following the setup directions was a breeze. After a few subtle tweaks to adjust for personal taste the system is performing flawlessly. No wires. Clean look.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality

One sound bar to rule them all!

DJK, Crutchfield
29 April 2013
  • Summary: This is my first sound bar and thus far has been a pleasant experience. The YSP 4300 was easy to setup with the instructions and once connected to my Sharp LED TV with the HDMI the 2 devices recognized each other. The Sharp volume control instantly worked with the YSP 4300 as did the power on/off. The sound quality far exceeds the standard speakers in the TV. As for true 7.1/5.1 sound.
  • Pros: Easy set-up, crystal clear voice and digital processing.
  • Cons: Price

YSP-4300 Speaker System

A.W., Crutchfield
28 April 2013
  • Summary: TV manufactures should just stop including their cheap TV speakers. I purchased the Yamaha system to get decient sound while watching TV. The YSP-4300 does a great job, but is tough to set up. I, like many males that have a female partner and was told that a competing system with individual speakers around the room was not an option, only a sound bar directly under the front of a TV is acceptable (no speaker clutter).
  • Pros: It's conveinient because it's located right under the TV in one place. All HDMI cables (4) are routed in back with 1 ARC out. There is only one HDMI into the TV. It illustrates the type of sound you're hearing.
  • Cons: The instructions should come in a book with the system, not on a CD, and be less complicated. Try setting up the speaker system while watching your computer or printing 80 pages on a little home computer printer!

A little bit of buyer's remorse

Kevin MAC, usa.yamaha.com
6 February 2013
  • Summary: My intended use of YSP-4300 was to replace multi-speaker surround sound system with a "no wire" system while retaining a reasonable surround sound experience. It achieves the look but not the "surround" I had hoped for. I am a beginner to sound bar technology so to be fair to the product; the room is a non-traditional open space, placed in a corner, sounds very clean but with no surround effect.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Clean sound quality, Easy to Mount, Good Power Output
  • Cons: Limited Remote, Weak Customer Support

Clear, crisp, brilliant sound | Excellent interface

Andy, Crutchfield
31 January 2013
  • Summary: After living with the weak sound from the onboard speakers in our Panasonic plasma television, we added a sound bar. We purchased a Bose Cinemate 1 (from Crutchfield) and found it lacking in many ways. Fortunately, the fine folks at Crutchfield were happy to work with us (1) to understand why the Bose was wrong for us and (2) to find a better solution - in this case, an upgrade to the Yamaha YSP-4300. [I can't say enough about Crutchfield's legendary customer service.
  • Pros: Crisp, clean, well-defined sound - sufficient power to fill our theatre with no trace of distortion. Auto- or manually-configurable. Fine-tunable. Visual feedback of audio settings. Excellent cabling and connections. Wireless sub-woofer. Slim wireless sub-woofer mounts horizontally or vertically and is easier to position (angle) than boxy profile sub-woofers.
  • Cons: All connections are bunched at one end of the sound bar which may require some reconfiguration of components or purchase of longer HDMI and other cables. We don't care, but I figure I should write something here so you didn't think I missed this box.

The Ultimate Soundbar

29 January 2013
  • Summary: I have had this Yamaha YSP for a week now and while I think it is a bit overpriced Yamaha makes products for the high end of the market and this is a very well constructed product with a solid feel. This sound bar has all the latest technology and all the inputs you need. This is a step up from the YSP 3300 with more drivers and more power and a front USB port and built in FM Radio and it compliments my Samsung UN60ES7500 and it worked flawlessly from first set up and...

Phenomenal System

Cincy Bob, Crutchfield
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Love this system. It is a bit pricey but well worth it. The bar is long and sleek. It's Subwoofer can be set up vertically or lying flat. It is also quite sleek and thin. There are many possibilities with sound variations. From stereo, surround sound with a 3 system sound direction, movie, music, and entertainment modes, an FM tuner and a USB port for iPod/iPad plug in. There is the ability to adjust the base and treble sound.
  • Pros: Sleek look. Subwoofer placement positions. Wireless connection. Great sound. Ability to adjust the sound many different ways. Clarity of speech in movies. Great base sound if wanted. Many ways to hookup the system using a variety of wired inputs. HDMI inputs. USB port for external devices such as iPods and iPads. System can be wall mounted. The bracket is sold separately.
  • Cons: HDMI cables are not included. Pricey. A bit tedious to set up. Owners manual is long and somewhat complicated to follow.
