Yamaha YSP-900 review: Yamaha YSP-900

 

Yamaha YSP-900

Yamaha's single-speaker surround system features 21 1.5-inch "beam" drivers; two 4-inch woofers; built-in digital amplifiers, proprietary surround processing; auto setup with the supplied microphone.

Minimalist connectivity; nowhere near the dynamic oomph of an equivalently priced 5.1 channel HTIB system; lacks finesse on two channel music; you'll probably have to add a subwoofer.

If you don't need the HDMI connections found on the step-up model, the Yamaha YSP-900 single-speaker surround system delivers exactly the same overall sound quality for less money.

Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1100 review: Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1100

 

Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1100

The long and sleek Yamaha YSP-1100 is a single-speaker virtual surround system that uses 40 1.5-inch drivers to bounce sound off walls and create enveloping surround effects while a pair of 4.25-inch woofers produce the bass. Built-in digital...

The YSP-1100 sounds best in sparsely furnished rooms, and the My Beam focus effect doesn't work as advertised. Video connectivity lacks S-Video and HDMI options.

Yamaha's YSP-1100, its best-ever Digital Sound Projector single-speaker surround system, is a breeze to set up and it sounds great on DVD.

Yamaha's new Digital Sound projector features 42 DSP-driven drivers that fire in waves to route sound in a way that recreates a full surround sound experience from a single enclosure. We listened to

The 900 model is lacking with sound quality and audiophiles should likely opt for a more powerful and comprehensive system. They will hear every subtle problem with the sounds. Those who do not consider themselves audiophiles will like this system just...

Yamaha YSP-1100 Speaker Review

 

The Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1100 is a single-piece virtual surround sound system that has enough stuff built into it to make it seem almost like a real surround sound set up. This is an excellent sound projector that has various options for...

This is an excellent way to minimize clutter and wires in the entertainment rooms of your home. Users will get an interesting surround sound-style audio experience without unnecessary speakers everywhere, but keep in mind that uncluttered rooms with...

Yamaha YSP-900 review

 

Does what it promises - surround sound from one box

Effective surround performance in smaller rooms ; value

Can struggle to fill larger spaces ; occasionally a little ‘cuppy’ with dialogue

Extraordinary, in that it actually delivers on its promise, and is tonally more complete than its forebears

Yamaha YSP-1100 review

 

A seriously impressive new model performs better in bigger spaces than others

Bigger and more lusty than its sibling ; able to fill larger rooms with sound ; credible surround performance ; tonally, very even

Nothing of note

The best Digital Sound Projector yet – hugely impressive

Yamaha YSP-1100 review

 

Has Yamaha proved that less is more with the release of its latest digital sound projector?

A stunning concept, executed with breathtaking precision. One of the coolest systems we’ve ever seen.

Ever since Yamaha first announced the Digital Sound Projector we've been salivating over its one-speaker home-cinema setup. So can the YSP-1's grandson live up to our galactic expectations?

It won’t be for everyone and it won’t beat a genuine home cinema system, but it's neat, looks ice-cool and outputs sumptuous surround sound
