Yamaha 5100 sound bar

TBlood, Crutchfield
21 May 2013
  • Summary: I love the simple connectivity of this sound bar. Plug in to outlet, plug usb from cable box, dvr, to the sound bar and your done. Don't panic if it sound fair, all adjustable to your sound preference. Spend the bucks on a GOOD bass which hooks up wirelessly to sound bar, (kit included with sound bar. Ipod wireless connection is also included and is awesome. Your i-phone will play music thru sound bar. We no longer have the bulky stereo amplifier, receiver, turntable.
  • Pros: unbelievably loud and distortion free sound
  • Cons: Price, but you get what you pay for.

Highly recommended fantastic sounding hometheater sound bar !!!!!

qubertue, Ebay
2 October 2012
  • Summary: An excellent solution for a great sounding, elegant hometheater. The sound is very clear for a center speaker. Very accurate left to right effect movement and with the proper room and setup adjustments, which can take some time and listening over several movies, suprisingly convincing front to back effecs. I professionally installed hometheater systems for 15yrs and the sound quality very accurate and for ease of install this speaker can not be beat.

YAMAHA YSP-5100BL

ROBERT, Crutchfield
27 July 2012
  • Summary: The unit performed as advertised. I am using it in a small, rectangular room with reflrctive walls and no obstructions to the sound beam's incidents or reflections. The YSP-5100's subwoofer output feeds a SVSOUND AS-EQ1, Audyssey MultEQ XT based, subwoofer equalizer. The EQ1 has dual outputs which feed two JBL PSW-D115 Subwoofers that are each positioned against, and midway along each of the opposite longside walls.

excellent soundbar

mc, Crutchfield
21 July 2012
  • Summary: Excellent sound and surround effect for a soundbar. Size better than anticipated once mounted under a sony xbr 55. Recommend comparing to the B+W soundbar which has better bass but not as clean highs. I plan on adding a sub which will cover the weaker bass provided by the Yamaha. Setup easy, although mounting is not. The Yamaha bracket leaves less to be desired with no true locking mechanism like a sonus or other tv mounts I have used in the past.
  • Pros: Sound Appearance Ease of use and setup No receiver needed
  • Cons: Mounting bracket weakness as above Cheap looking remote but easy to use

A Serious Alternative

Rosegrad, Crutchfield
11 February 2012
  • Summary: Upgraded from the YSP-4000 to support 3D signal pass-thru. Yamaha delivers first-rate audio experience as always. Amazing performance without running wires to speakers throughout a room. Guests routinely admire the audio experience especially for movies and concerts. If money is no object and room is pre-wired, buy individual speakers and enjoy. Otherwise, give this a listen.
  • Pros: Features. Accomodates every current format. Sound Projection that can fool most ears. Simple on-screen setup (out of the box to cleaning up the mess was under an hour). Works with Blue-ray and standard DVD player (even specially chipped PAL DVD player). Wireless iPod/iPhone connectivity a big hit also.
  • Cons: Price, but it is a Yamaha. Will not suffice wthout a quality Subwoofer.

Good Sound BUT...

kb, Crutchfield
27 December 2011
  • Summary: The way I look at it is this; The sound is great and it works fine for playing music CD's and watching TV or listening to music on your iPod, but when trying to watch a DVD, forget it. Its a complete waste of time and money. I would expect better from a system that I paid this much for. And it might not even be so bad if you could find a way to use the system as speakers routed through your receiver, but you can't.
  • Pros: This sound bar produces great sound and has every sound format decoder that you can think of. It produces great full enveloping sound, but...
  • Cons: It doesn't work with regular DVD's, only Blue Ray DVD's! When watching movies, about every 10 minutes the signal processor (sound and video)cut out and you're left looking at a blank screen for about 10 seconds. As time continues, the time between "cut-outs" gets shorter. By the end of the movie the system audio and video is cutting out about every 5 minutes.

Fantastic sound experience!

Chris, Abes of Maine
17 May 2010
  • Summary: The set up for the 5100 is very easy and I love the multiple HDMI inputs. Sound is crystal clear. One thing I have noticed is that the wireless control of the sub woofer affects my wifi but not a major issue at all.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Setup, Intuitive Controls
  • Cons: Confusing Remote

Viktor_J, Prisjakt
27 September 2012
  • Summary: I och med renoveringen av lägenheten bytte jag ut hela mitt hembiosystem, som bestod av 5.1 högtalare, förstärkare, dvd-spelare, satellitmottagare, CRT-projektor (70 kg hängande i taket), vanlig TV, 2 m duk med mera. Vardagsrummet var med andra ord fullt med prylar. Största fördelen är klart att inte ha rummet fullt med högtalare, sladdar, förstärkare etc. Jag byggde in ljudlimpan i TV-möbeln, så den har i princip försvunnit.

  • Excerpt: До этого аппарата имелась система - стерео-усилитель ямаха + крупная напольная акустика JBL. Давно питаю слабость к технике ямаха, но следует сказать, что звук усилитель+напольники просто несравнимо лучше чем данный звуковой проектор, учитывая что связка имевшаяся у меня стоила раза в два дешевле чем этот проектор, а звук был во столько же раз лучше - именно это я имел ввиду говоря про завышенную цену.
  • Pros: Дизайн Марка с историей Автоматическая калибровка звука с микрофоном (в комплекте) Неплохие эффекты расширения звучания Хороший звук при наличии сабвуфера Коммутация большого количества источников Универсальный пульт, настаиваемый на другую имеющуюся технику
  • Cons: Цена чуть завышена (поясню ниже) Без сабвуфера звук никуда не годится Кронштейн на стену докупается отдельно Тюнер не слишком хорошо ловит на прилагаемый проводок-антенну можно еще попридираться, но не буду.
