Lots of sound bars promise to create "virtual" surround sound from a single speaker enclosure, but Yamaha's Digital Sound Projector line have historically been the only models that can actually do it well. It's an impressive feat, accomplished by...

The Yamaha YSP-1400 sound bar features the company's Digital Sound Projector technology that bounces sound off the walls in your room to create credible virtual surround sound. The system has built-in Bluetooth and an IR repeater, so it won't block...

Getting a true surround sound signal to the YSP-1400 can be difficult. While it does sound more spacious than a standard sound bar, it doesn't match the true virtual surround magic of Yamaha's pricier sound bars. And the lack of an external subwoofer...

Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.

Good clarity and detail, Deep bass response for a stand-alone unit, Dimensional sound stage, Highly configurable audio settings

Can get too aggressive in the treble, Not ideal for music playback, No ARC connection/trouble with programming our TV remote

Yamaha’s YSP-1400 Sound Projector delivers a bevy of features, an immersive soundstage, and great detail. The audio settings are fully configurable, and the system offers a lot of punch, without the need for a subwoofer sidecar. The treble was a little...

The Yamaha YSP-1400 is attempting to bring Yamaha's vaunted "beaming" technology to the masses at an affordable price. While the price is fair, the performance isn't quite up to expectations.

App Control ; Enough inputs ; Subwoofer output ; Bluetooth works well ; IR Pass Through for Blocked TV IR Receivers

Sibilant ; Even in optimal room, surround effect unconvincing ; Wall mounting may look a little goofy ; Bass light ; Weak stereo separation

Years from now home theater enthusiasts may be reading whole articles on the available models within the Digital Sound Projector category. For the present though, there exists only the category-defining Yamaha YSP-1, a brilliant marriage of compact...

Single-box, high performance, 42 digital amplifier, surround sound system ; Very easy, 30-minute hook-up; interconnects only ; Decor-friendly, highest spouse-acceptance factor system ; Plays impressively loud and clean ; Quality construction, exemplary...

Requires subwoofer for full-bandwidth movie sound ; Some non-re-EQ'ed DVDs can sound bright at high SPL ; Software set-up requires a learning curve

This sound bar has a rich, realistic sound and 5.1 channels for maximum performance.

The design is a little bulky, so it may get in the way of your TV remote sensor.

Dialogue enhancement, Can learn the TVs remote

Audio adjustments can vary widely depending on the room's configuration

The YSP-1400 is the latest addition to Yamaha’s well received line of sound projectors. $449.95 doesn’t just buy a quality sound bar for listening to audio coming from straight ahead, but adds surround through the clever application of “bouncing”...

Five star value from Myron Ho on this more entry-level soundbar from Yamaha starts the discussion of audiophile soundbars versus TV-improvement speakers.

I've been waiting a couple of months to review the affordable Yamaha YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector after hearing about it at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show. The YSP-1 is a great looking single-enclosure, multichannel speaker system, whose core...

In a time when housing prices are rising at an exponential rate, making affordable square footage scarce, one of the major challenges to having a home theater system is space. The home-theater-in-a-box phenomenon has attacked this problem by packaging...

Product Specifications

Long before Yamaha became known for audio equipment, it was a music company renowned for making some of the most impressive pianos in the world. Yamaha has become the world's largest producer of musical instruments and is also a leader and innovator in the field of electronic instruments. In short, Yamaha is a company driven by a love of natural sound, and a mandate to improve it. Which is why Yamaha doesn't take the design and production of home audio components lightly and the YSP1 is no exception. This single component houses 42 transducers, each driven by a separate digital amplifier, to create a true multi-channel surround sound environment minus all the extra speakers.
