Not HDCP 2.2 compliant, a huge disappointment for this price tag

Matt R., Crutchfield
4 September 2015
  • Summary: For this kind of money it should support the latest developments in HDCP, especially considering this thing is intended to double as a receiver. So my choices now are to feed all the signals through this sound projector (treating it like a receiver, as intended) and get great sound, but not 4k video...
  • Pros: Great sound Easy to set up
  • Cons: Not HDCP 2.2 compliant, just ridiculous.

Not Credible

One Who Speaks Truth, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: This has been rated as one of the best soundbars available. If this is so, forget soundbars altogether. Even a cheap HT system is superior to this. Surround effect is non-existent and the sound quality is below average. Frankly, I was shocked.

IN THE BEDROOM

HAPPY COUPLE, Crutchfield
14 August 2014
  • Summary: My wife is mostly bedridden with her disability, so we got this and a 65" tv for our bedroom since we watch a lot of tv and movies. This rocks a bedroom, don't know about bigger rooms, but we feel like we are at the movie theater.

Very good sound quality

Reuben, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Although this is not a discrete solution, the simulation of 5-1, 7-1 sound is very good. Set-up was extremely simple and took about 3mins to get a baseline calibration in my 400sq ft family room.

YSP-4300 Soundbar Review

BC, Crutchfield
24 February 2014
  • Summary: The Yamaha YSP-4300 was delivered as scheduled, always great service from Crutchfield. Was double boxed by Yamaha, nothing broken or missing. Took about 30 minutes to unbox, setup and was running.
  • Pros: Great packing, easy to set up, sounds good
  • Cons: Can't get Yamaha transmitter to work to stream music.

Sound and Style vs. Cost

DarrenC, Crutchfield
20 January 2014
  • Summary: Reviewed many units as I was looking to consolidate my existing 5.1 surround system with something more compact and stylish (i.e. my wife wanted to get rid of wires and the "extra" speakers. I already have a Yamaha receiver and can say that this surround bar system provides excellent sound.
  • Pros: Stylish and great sound. Really good at replicating surround sound. Lots of connections and simple setup. Allows you to even skip the cost and space of a seperate receiver.
  • Cons: Cost. But if you are starting from scratch, it is less expensive than you think as you don't need the surround sound receiver.

Nice but not for me

Mark_S, Crutchfield
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I have an open living room configuration where the TV setup is closer to one side (left) of the walls. But I took a chance on a sound bar anyway, mostly because I wanted to streamline my setup. I connected the YSP-4300 to my Panasonic TC-P55VT50 TV and tucked the compact wireless sub under my sofa.
  • Pros: Dialogue was clean. Projected sound bounces off walls. Subwoofer is compact and can be hidden.
  • Cons: Sound doesn't fill odd shaped room. Expensive.

Phenomenal System

20 January 2014
  • 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.
  • 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...
  • Cons: HDMI cables are not included. Pricey. A bit tedious to set up. Owners manual is long and somewhat complicated to follow.

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.
  • Pros: Easy set-up, crystal clear voice and digital processing.
  • Cons: Price
