Yamaha YSP-4100 Review

 

Sound bars have now become as common as 5.1 channel surround sound home theatre systems. They basically need no introduction as a consumer knows what exactly he or she is going in for when they are in the market for a sound bar. But for those who are...

The Yamaha YSP-4100 is extremely feature-rich and is available in India at an MOP of Rs.97,500. This may be probably one of the best sound bars available in the market as it delivers performances that can be outmatched by only 5.1 channel speaker...

More than any other sound bars available today, the Yamaha's high-end Digital Sound Projectors deliver a single-speaker home theater solution without making too many compromises. The Yamaha YSP-4100 is one of the few sound bars that actually does a...

Sound-bar home theater system (no AV receiver required); best-in-class virtual surround processing and overall excellent sound quality; four HDMI inputs; three digital audio inputs; analog video upconversion; wireless music streaming from an iPod with...

Very expensive; doesn't support 3D video pass-through; no subwoofer included; much larger than many competing models; a true 5.1 home theater system sounds better

The Yamaha YSP-4100 offers better surround effects, superior sound quality and more features than competing sound bars, but it's expensive and most buyers won't need all its functionality.

The Yamaha YSP-5100 sound bar has an outstanding assortment of features and best-in-class virtual surround, but it's very expensive and doesn't sound much better than the step-down YSP-4100.

Yamaha YSP-4100 Digital Sound Projector Review

 

I've had the opportunity to review several soundbar systems over the last year, and Yamaha's YSP-4100 is the best-sounding unit yet. Then again, this is no ordinary soundbar but what ...

Expert review by:

Best sound bar, but expensive

 

Critics agree that the Yamaha YSP-4100 Digital Sound Projector sounds better and does a better job of producing a convincing surround-sound field than just about any other sound bar currently available. The biggest downside is cost as it is...

Sounds great, better virtual surround sound than most sound bars, good features

Very expensive, large

Consumer review by:

"Outstanding sound that will leave you surprised!"

 

This soundbar sounds phenomenal. It provides great mids while creating an astounding home theater effect.You will however need a subwoofer for your lows. The system comes with Yamaha's SWK-W10 wireless subwoofer kit which allows you to hook up a...

Loud but crisp sound

Expensive

"Supports 3D pass through"

 

Good enough for people that don't wish to run tons of speakers and wires, but still would like surround sound

Yamaha updated firmware for both YSP-4100 and YSP-5100 and both support 3d. Nice thing is you don't have to run wires and its simple to operate.

Only problems is price and its too tall meaning you have to raise your TV so that its not covered up by the huge speaker. When yamaha lowers the price to 1300 dollars which is still more than 2 times most other systems its worth buying.

Great speaker

 

Light weight, low battery consumption and easy to operate. I recently went to the beach and used it with my ipod for around 5 hours and it never stopped playing. Great quality sound for the size

none that I can think of

Great Sound

 

Amazing sound, battery powered or plugged in! Surprising amount of base and volume from such a small footprint device

None
