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 .
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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..
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.
