Best sound bar available!

Joseph M. Krak, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: This sound bar produces incredible sound. No small wonder as Yamaha is THE choice of all monitors for professional musicians. One caveat: DO NOT buy this unit from the provider listed on Amazon. He is a rip-off artist .

Great Buy!

luxaholic007, Ebay
3 April 2012
  • Summary: I had a problem with the rear facing speakers in my flat screen TV. Problem solved with YSP 800. Only con: Speaker is tall and protrudes into TV picture area. This will not be a problem if your TV is mounted on the wall or you have space to locate your YST 800 above or below your TV. Love the versatility of this unit. Now I can undertand TV conversation.

Pure And Undistorted

1rico718702, Ebay
5 September 2011
  • Summary: Excellent sound quality with little distortion. I have this set up in a small den and it is great for watching movies. The jack field in rear is not the best (no hdmi) and not set up great but you can work with it. The manual is ninety pages long and not so easy to follow. The quick set-up is the saving grace of the unit (I used it). I have not bought the subwoofer to add as of yet, will it improve the experience? We'll see.

Yamaha YSP800 Review

S. Parsons, Amazon
4 September 2011
  • Summary: We have always been pleased with the Yamaha YSP product line - sound quality is excellent, though they are on the more expensive end of the scale for this product category. Integrates well with 3rd party control systems. Looks good. One comment, this product arrived slightly damaged - grill dented - though it was easier to pay the $50 locally to have it repaired than to go through the process of RMA.

Good Value If Purchased Used

imcholly, Ebay
10 June 2011
  • Summary: Replaced 5.1 system with YSP-800 to eliminate existing large front speakers and number of speakers (spouse request). Sound is good, but separation and smoothness of bass is not as good as the 5.1. Am using the same 100W Yamaha subwoofer in both systems, but there is a difference in the low end due to the lack of the large floor speakers. Calibrated room/system using the reference microphone but have tweaked multiple times.

Yamaha Sound Bar a cut above

beeth-9, Ebay
6 March 2011
  • Summary: The YSP-800 is much more sophisticated than the Sony and Phillips sound bars for the low $200s. Connections are easy and programming with the supplied microphone is a snap. It offers numerous features including surround sound, stereo, and targeted where it aims all the sound at a single point to allow night use without keeping everyone up. The unit is substantial (about 25 lbs) so mounting on a shelf under the tv is your best bet.

  • Summary: so far so good. best thing next to full surround sound. its not the real thing but with the way my room is set up its hard to get sound behind me being against the wall. cant wait to mount it to my wall and also get a subwoofer. i bought it because i was looking for an affordable addition to the stock sound out of my tv.

Right room configuration a must.

D. Khomyak, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this product based on the reviews here and on other sites, and unfortunately it's not working that well for me. Problem is that my room is basically a long rectangle, and the tv and sound bar are set up in the corner. The way my room in configured, I get no surround type sound. Basically I'm stuck with a Stereo + 3 Beam configuration. The sound is not bad, better then my tv, but it's just not worth the money in my situation.

Simplicity!!! The perfect audio solution!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 January 2009
  • Summary: I was curious about the potential of this speaker so I took the plunge, and now I'm amazed! I purchased the matching sub as well (a must).. 2 optical inputs and 2 rca inputs provided enough options.. The sound is great and the ability to throw it in different directions to create the surround sound feeling is soo cool. Purchasing this speaker/sub combo is a very EASY way to enjoy great sound without all the wires & clutter!

Exactly What I Was Looking For

Rob, Amazon
13 February 2008
  • Summary: *Disclaimer-I am not an audiophile, nor do I play one on TV* I wanted simplicity and quality. I considered a Bose system, but ended up choosing the YSP-800. Wall mounted and paired with the for more low end punch, the system delivers a very nice surround sound "like" environment. Quite impressive at higher volumes, but even MORE impressive when you turn it way down at night, after the kids go to bed, and you can still hear every audio detail.
