Yamaha YSP-5100

 

More than any other sound bar available today, the Yamaha YSP-5100 delivers a single-single speaker home theater solution without making too many compromises. It's one of the few sound bars that actually does a credible job of creating virtual...

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 sound appreciably better than step-down YSP-4100; 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-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.

By far the best virtual surround solution we've come across

Convincing virtual surround sound ; Great punch and detail ; Huge spec ; it' ; s a real doddle to set up under your TV

Some may crave deeper bass

Add a subwoofer for more bass True, the bass isn't astonishingly deep, but you can add a subwoofer if that's what you're after, and the bass that is offered is taut and well-integrated.

"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.
