Yamaha YSP-2500 review

 

Yamaha's YSP-2500 throws a powerful burst of surround sound imagery that pulls you in, and doesn't let go

Edging towards the price point of diminishing returns in the sound bar genre, Yamaha’s YSP-2500 may not be cheap, but it offers a powerful burst of audio imagery that pulls you into the action and refuses to let go. While music isn’t its forte,...

Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Review

 

This review of the new Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound bar explores whether you can get true surround sound out of a simple sound bar at a modest price. A more affordable version of the YSP-3300 and YSP-4300.

Discrete surround sound from a single sound bar ; Easy auto-setup with a user-friendly features ; A more affordable version of Yamaha's YSP technology

Even at the middle of Yamaha's YSP product range, still more costly than most soundbars

More consistency in calibration, as calibration may not work in some rooms ; Improved surround sound, especially with Blu-ray movies ; Less dependency on location of sub, which is important as it is somewhat directional

Yamaha YSP-2500: The true entry-level digital sound projector

 

Yamaha has a wide range of digital sound projectors and after checking out their new entry-level sometime ago, we are now taking a look at the next model up the YSP hierarchy - the YSP-2500 sound bar.

Excellent audio performance ; Superb subwoofer ; Believable surround sound ; Lots of inputs, Bluetooth connectivity ; Support for 4K/60fps pass-through

No USB port ; Looks weird if mounted on walls ; Dialogue sometimes muffled ; Pricey but justifiable

To sum up, if you are looking for a true surround sound experience from a minimal speaker setup, the YSP-2500 will not disappoint. And this is especially true for readers who want to buy into the Yamaha digital sound projector experience. The YSP-2500...

Yamaha YSP-2500

 

A full 5.1 speaker system is the best way to experience home cinema, but for many people practicalities such as room layout, budget and clutter-fearing partners make it an impossible dream.

Enveloping surround sound ; Superb build quality and elegant design ; Extensive feature list

Surround effect dependent on room layout ; More complicated than most soundbars ; Relatively expensive

Yamaha’s fantastic soundbar delivers home cinema thrills like no other, while a packed feature list and killer design seal the deal.

Yamaha YSP-2500 review

 

Best soundbar £600+, Awards 2014. Yamaha's done it again – a superbly talented soundbar delivering captivating sound

Exciting, expansive surround sound Good scale Plenty of punch Great build and design

Needs sympathetic placement and room acoustics to get a convincing effect

The YSP-2500’s expansive soundfield, punch and scale are impressive, and it’s the most appealing solution for those that want cinema-style sound without going the full hog with a 5.1 system. MORE: Awards 2014 - all the winners

Yamaha YSP-2500 review

 

Calling the sound that comes out of a regular soundbar 'surround sound' is like saying that watching the World Cup on TV is the same as being in the stadium. But, judging from marketing literature, it's a good selling feature.

Neat design; good build quality; connectivity; convincing surround sound; HD audio decoding; superb sonic quality; versatile DSP modes

Bluetooth metadata not shown on display; remote control not backlit/non-learning

Yamaha YSP-2500 Soundbar Review

 

Yamaha have been pushing the boundaries of soundbars for years but does the YSP-2500 deliver that killer combination of design, performance and price?

Excellent audio quality ; Sound beam technology ; Feature packed ; Attractive design and finish ; Great build quality ; Price

May not suit every room

If it's a soundbar that you're after then you'll be hard pushed to find a better performer for the money than the Yamaha YSP-2500. The company's long association with soundbars shows through in every aspect of the YSP-2500's design and there's an...
