Yamaha's Shelf Speaker Leaves Room for Some Boom

 

Yamaha's latest shelf speaker can rock the house(or at least a big room). You'll just have just part ways with a lot of cash to get there.

The “b” in USB here stands for “belongs on top, not in the back.” USB handles MP3 and WMA formats easily. Clean, understated design lines. Short and shallow enough to fit on many bookcases. Dimmable display perfect for bedtime “dance” parties....

Not loud enough for really big spaces (read anything larger than 20 x 20 feet). Remote control required to set time and date. Screwdriver required to change remote control’s batteries. A bit large for smaller bedside tables. Bass has enough kick to...

One confused product

 

I'm starting to think buying this at the price above was a mistake. I'm comparing it to the Bose Wave Radio, which is 100 dollars more. This system is confused as to whether or not its a fancy clock radio or a shelf system. For the price it should have...

Minimalist design ; CD Player ; iPod Dock built-in ; A lot more features then the Bose Wave Radio ; USB port for the 2 people that still don't have an iPod

Lackluster sound ; No AM radio tuner ; Need the remote to set the clock, use the DSP or mute the device

Consumer review by:

Very nice sound.

 

Nice little unit for good sound in the dining room. The CD, FM and iPod dock all work very well and I am very taken with the overall sound quality.

Fantastic

 

Fantastic product, even my wife has been thrilled with it. The construction is very solid, no flimsy cd trays, no 1lb weight. This feels like it is build to last. I was not 100% sold onthe look when I purchased it, but it looks much better in person...
