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: 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: 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.
Summary: It's not overwhelming. Audiophiles will probably not be impressed. But, for someone wanting a simple setup, cool technology, and a nice, sleek addition to their other sleek home theatre equipment, this is an awesome purchase. When you turn up the volume, the surround sound feel is definitely there.
Summary: WAF= wife acceptance factor. Nice clean installation has aesthetic benefits. I have this mated to the YST-II subwoofer and it sounds much better than the TV speakers. The soundstage is much wider than the TV speakers. I have my TV/speakers in a corner installation.
Summary: I purchased the Yamaha YSP800 as a last year model on sale for 200.00 at a local electronic store. Holy @#** it rocks. My kids thought an earthquake had derailed a train and it was crashing into the house.
Summary: I wanted a decent sound system that would not require running any wires to speakers around the room. This unit fit the bill and I'm not disappointed. My biggest gripe so far is that I have been unable (so far) to find a universal remote code for this unit that I can enter into my Comcast remote.
