Yamaha YHT-S400 Soundbar HTiB First Look

 

Yamaha is pushing the limits of compactness with the new YHT-S400 Soundbar, receiver, and subwoofer solution. Yamaha has combined its thinnest soundbar with a combo receiver/subwoofer.

While it is sort of obvious that we dissapprove of mating a receiver and a subwoofer, the rest of the YHT-S400 package sounds pretty good. The soundbar should work well under most flatpanels (though it probably looks best under a 50") and the receiver...

Yamaha YHT-S400 review

 

A mixture of both soundbar and receiver, this accomplished Yamaha delivers high-quality sound with plenty of presence and focus

Crisply detailed, well integrated sound ; tidy soundbar and thoughtful subwoofer design

Rack-mounting a subwoofer with the rest of your kit can’t be recommended

Inventive thinking from Yamaha delivers a soundbar that’s part-way to a cinema-in-a-box system

Yamaha YHT-S400 Home Cinema System

 

Home cinema systems can make a huge difference to the quality of sound that emanates from your HDTV, but can also make a mess of your living room plan; the big, black sub-woofer cubes that really give you that extra punch to your audio are somewhat...

The Yamaha YHT-S400 is a solid, well-rounded home cinema system at a very tempting price – less than £390. You’re not going to get jaw-dropping resultsin terms of surround sound – you’ll need to pay a considerable amount more for that – but the special...

mistake

 

Sound was ok and the price was fine

My product was defective...kept turning on-and-off. Video signal would fade every 45 minutes and the NewEgg support is tough to get without a major wait/cost
