Amazon.com Product Description

Yamaha marries high style and high quality in one powerful, easy-to-use speaker system. Hook your DVD player into a surround-capable audio/video receiver and the NS-FP9500 slim-line multichannel speaker system, and prepare to be enthralled by seamless, full-range surround sound. The NS-FP9500 is a 6.1-channel system offering front left/right, surround left/right, and a rear-center satellite/bookshelf speaker, a front center-channel speaker, and a 120-watt powered subwoofer, model YST-SW030. The system requires a 6.1-channel receiver for full enjoyment. If you're already set up for 5.1 sound (without the rear center-channel output), don't sweat it--you'll still get terrific performance (and you can always store one of the system's five satellite speakers for later on).

The three-way satellites and the center-channel speaker all use acoustic-suspension designs for clear sound with taut, uncolored sound. All employ dual drivers with a coaxial, .5-inch tweeter mounted on one of them and all are capable of handling amplifier power up to 120 watts. The complete system is finished in silver for great looks as well as great sound. Magnetic shielding on all speakers permits placement near TVs and computer monitors with no risk of image distortion. The speakers' amazing high-frequency response extends to 60,000 Hz.

The 75-watt, 8-inch subwoofer packs the most "under the hood," so to speak, with Yamaha's patented Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) generating incredible bass from its small enclosure. Advanced YST uses negative-impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass.

QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses a down-firing driver with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate sound efficiently in four horizontal directions. The reflective plates (not used in other brands' down-firing subwoofers) negate any effects caused by the floor surface and reduce resonance between sound waves reflected from the floor and the unit. Most other systems use circular cones, but the YST-SW030, by radiating in four directions, avoids firing sound into the legs of the cabinet. Changing the height of the pyramid varies the acoustic load, permitting relatively simple high-cut adjustment and improving bandpass properties. QD-Bass also grants greater freedom of placement, since the sound radiates with equal effectiveness in all directions.

The sub's individual volume control permits the perfect matching of the sub's output to the overall volume of the system. The YST-SW030 has a signal-sensing circuit, too. When the subwoofer detects an audio signal, it turns its power on. When it senses no signal for several minutes, it shuts itself off.

Yamaha's BASS (Bass Action Selector Switch) tailors the sub's output for video or music at the touch of a switch. The sub accepts a line-level RCA input only, and a handy phase normal/reverse switch makes it easy to phase the subwoofer with the other speakers in the system (room placement greatly affects phase relationships).

Amazon.com Product Description

Hunting for exciting, dynamic surround sound on a budget? You've landed at the right system. It's no mirage: Yamaha's affordable YHT-150 includes the 5-piece NS-AP1500 speaker ensemble, a YST-SW010 subwoofer, and Yamaha's HTR-5730 home theater receiver, which pumps 100 watts per channel x 6 discrete channels (at 1 kHz) and offers a host of options for rendering the type of surround sound best suited to your taste or programming.

The powerful HTR-5730 receiver accepts the DVD player's Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, and DTS 5.1-channel surround signals and routes each channel to its designated speaker. Additionally, the receiver's Silent Cinema and Night Listening modes enhance headphone and low-level listening, respectively, while Yamaha's 32-bit Cinema-DSP processing gives you an additional 24 surround effects to enhance your movies and music. With the HTR-5730's 5.1-channel analog inputs, you're ready for high-resolution DVD-Audio/SACD playback, too, whether from your current disc player(s) or from any future devices to which you might upgrade. The receiver offers a total of 4 AV inputs, and its tuner section offers 40-station AM/FM preset tuning.

The 6-speaker complement includes the 5-speaker NS-AP1500 for the front, center, and surround speakers and Yamaha's YST-SW010 subwoofer for deep bass, which is important for effective home theater sound. Each speaker in the NS-AP1500 ensemble uses a sealed, acoustic-suspension design with dual 2.5-inch pulp-cone woofers. The center speaker is specially configured for TV placement and--as it handles upwards of 70 percent of a movie's audio, including most voices--it's engineered for slightly more full-bodied sound than the other speakers.

The 100-watt, 6.5-inch subwoofer uses a spruce-cone driver and Yamaha's patented Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST), generating incredible bass from its small enclosure. Advanced YST uses negative-impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass.

QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses a down-firing driver with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate sound with equal effectiveness in all directions. The sub's individual volume control permits the perfect matching of the sub's output to the overall volume of the system. The sub has a signal-sensing circuit, too. When it detects an audio signal, it powers right up. When it senses no signal for several minutes, it shuts itself off.

All speakers included with the YHT-150 feature magnetic shielding, so they can be placed near a TV or monitor and cause no picture degradation.

4-0 out of 5 stars First impression generally positive
I have owned this system for about 48 hours now. Setup was standard... almost. Since it doesn't come with a DVD player, they furnish no cables to allow you to connect one to it. No RCA, no S Video, no fiber optic cable. (In fact, come to think of it, I don't recall an S Video connection on the back of this unit. I'm no expert, so I don't know if this is a bad thing or not.) There are a TON of input ports, though, including two fiber optic inputs for your DVD / CD and cable / satellite. Anyhow, setup required two visits to my local hardware store to pick up the necessary cables, and I am now fully connected. Also, so long as I am talking cables, I am pleased to point out they included higher-gauge speaker wire (although not quite enough of it).

Sound is acceptable, for a $300 unit. I don't think anyone would mistake it for a much costlier piece of equipment, but for what I consider a bargain-basement home theatre system, it's pretty good. The Sub stays busy, even while watching golf. I am disappointed that my digital cable system did not have a fiber optic output from the box, but that is a different issue, and obviously not the fault of the Yamaha.

The interface to set your system settings is a little cumbersome. It took me a number of attempts to successfully define my speaker landscape, room size, and all that. I do appreciate that the remote seems quite capable of subsuming the responsibilities of other remotes. It was easy to get it to

I'll try to update my review after a few months with the system. ... Read more

Find out what the home-theater fuss is all about: hook your DVD player into a surround-capable audio/video receiver and Yamaha's NS-P436 multichannel speaker system and prepare to be enthralled by seamless, full-range surround sound. The NS-P436 is a 6.1-channel system offering front left/right, surround left/right, and a rear-center satellite/bookshelf speaker, a front center-channel speaker, and a 120-watt powered subwoofer, model YST-SW015.

If you're already set up for 5.1 sound (without the rear center-channel output), don't sweat it--you'll still get terrific performance (and you can always store one of the system's five satellite speakers for later on).

The satellites and the center-channel speaker all use acoustic-suspension designs with dual 2-inch drivers and a coaxial .5-inch tweeter mounted on one of the drivers. All are capable of handling amplifier power up to 100 watts (30 watts nominal power), and the complete system is finished in piano black for great looks as well as great sound.

The powered sub packs the most "under the hood," so to speak, with Yamaha's patented Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) generating incredible bass from its small enclosure. Advanced YST uses negative-impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass.

Changing the height of the pyramid varies the acoustic load, permitting relatively simple high-cut adjustment and improving bandpass properties. QD-Bass also grants greater freedom of placement, since the sound radiates with equal effectiveness in all directions.

The user-adjustable, variable high-cut filter sets the highest frequency the subwoofer will deliver. It can be set anywhere from 50 to 150 Hz. For instance, if the filter is set at 75 Hz, only frequencies 75 Hz or below will be delivered by the subwoofer. This allows the sub's output to be matched to the lowest reproducible frequency of the other speakers in the system and the room's acoustics for a seamless presentation.

The rotary volume control permits the perfect matching of the sub's output to the overall volume of the system. The YST-SW015 has a signal-sensing circuit, too. When the subwoofer detects an audio signal, it turns its power on. When it senses no signal for several minutes, it shuts itself off.

Amazon.com Product Description

Yamaha's YHT-F1500 combines all-in-one convenience with high-quality audio and video components for truly compelling home theater. The system consists of Yamaha's sleek, progressive-scan DV-SL100 DVD-Video/DVD-Audio player, the 6-piece NS-AP9500 speaker ensemble, the YST-SW030 subwoofer, plus Yamaha's slim RX-SL100 home theater receiver, which pumps 100 watts per channel x 6 discrete channels (at 1 kHz) and offers a host of options for rendering the type of surround sound best suited to your taste or programming.

The RX-SL100 is a powerful receiver that accepts the DVD player's Dolby Digital and Dolby EX, and DTS/DTS-ES/DTS Neo:6 surround signals (5.1- and 6.1-channel formats) and routes each channel to its designated speaker. Dolby Pro Logic IIx generates discrete multichannel surround sound from any stereo source. The receiver uses a highly efficient digital amplifier which delivers high power and low distortion from a chassis much smaller than that of a traditional A/V receiver. Additionally, the receiver's Silent Cinema and Night Listening modes enhance headphone and low-level listening, respectively, while Yamaha's 32-bit Cinema-DSP processing gives you an additional 28 surround effects to enhance your movies and music. Front-panel audio/video inputs (including an optical digital-audio in) make it easy to play games or view camcorder footage through your theater, and the receiver offers a total of 5 A/V inputs. The tuner section offers 40-station AM/FM preset tuning.

Yamaha's DV-SL100 spins DVD-Video, VCD, SVCD, CD-R/CD-RW, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW, MP3, and JPEG (multisession) CDs, putting most types of audio and video media at your disposal. The versatile player will even render region-free European PAL-formatted discs on NTSC televisions, and vice-versa. The player features both interlaced (for standard TVs) and progressive-scan component-video outputs (for use with compatible HD or HD-ready TVs). Other features include picture zoom, shuffle play, repeat play, and five-disc resume.

The 7-speaker complement includes the 6-speaker NS-AP9500 for the front, center, and surround speakers and Yamaha's YST-SW030 subwoofer for deep bass, which is important for effective home theater sound. Each 3-way speaker in the NS-AP9500 ensemble uses a sealed, acoustic-suspension design with Quad 4-inch high-compliance pulp-cone woofers and a .75-inch soft-dome tweeter.

The 130-watt, 8-inch subwoofer offers Yamaha's patented Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST), which generates incredible bass from its small enclosure. Advanced YST uses negative-impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass.

It's never been easier to set yourself up for the excitement of immersive, discrete surround sound than it is with Yamaha's affordable NS-P236 speaker system. The NS-P236 is a 6.1-channel system offering front left/right, surround left/right, and a rear-center satellite/bookshelf speaker, a front center-channel speaker, and a 55-watt powered subwoofer (representing the ".1"), model YST-SW005. It also comes with all the wiring and mounting brackets required to integrate the system with your living room.

Be aware, however, that the system requires a 6.1-channel receiver for full enjoyment.

Amazon.com Product Description

It sounds like a dream of the future: all the music in your household stored efficiently on a central server and then called, as desired, to individual rooms through elegant--and completely independent--microsystems. Yamaha's MusicCAST system makes that dream a reality, and the MCX-1000 digital audio server is the foundation of the MusicCAST system.



Learn about the MusicCAST system in detail
The MCX-1000 stores music and broadcasts it wirelessly to one or more specially designed microsystem receiver in your house. Each receiver system (or "client") consists of the Yamaha MCX-A10 digital audio terminal coupled with any pair of stereo loudspeakers, or Yamaha's matching, stylish MCX-SP10. Using a multiclient system, all members of a home can store their music in a central location, create playlists, custom CDs, and digital sound files from vintage vinyl records, and wirelessly transmit them anywhere in the house.

Capable of storing around 1,000 CDs (using MP3 compression at a very listenable 160 kbps), the MCX-1000's self-contained 80 GB hard drive provides instant access to a vast array of your favorite music. The server's bits are yours to configure: save your music in CD-quality linear PCM digital audio (it'll hold an impressive 133 hours of CD-quality audio) or convert it internally to MP3 at rates of 160, 256, or 320 kbps. The server has its own disc drive--which records CDs as well as playing them--and analog and digital external audio inputs in case you want to load material from LPs, cassettes, or other sources.



The MCX-1000 features a user friendly interface.
Equipped with IEEE 802.11b network technology, the MCX-1000 can serve up to five clients wirelessly, and wired Ethernet connections can extended client range as well as number. The server can send music to eight different locations including the server's, letting you use up to seven independent MCX-A10 terminals with one MCX-1000. Each client terminal comes with a graphical user interface and its own remote control, with which you can build custom playlists for artist, occasion, or anything else you can think of.

The versatile built-in CD recorder lets you save your music to the server at lightning-fast speeds, create your own CD compilations, or simply play your collections of MP3 CDs. The device supports multiple bit rates in addition to variable-bit-rate (VBR) MP3 files.

Storing from CD to the hard drive is easy and fully automated. Once a disc is loaded, a music-recognition database provided by Gracenote CDDB will bring up all the information associated with that disc, such as artist, album, track names, and even musical genre. Press "start" and the server will add the album to the library with nothing left for you to do but sit back and enjoy it. With Internet access (via an optional broadband router), the system is designed to let you obtain the latest CD recognition data from a Gracenote CDDB Server.

Hook up your broadband connection with the built-in Ethernet port. Display the server's onscreen menu on a TV or monitor with S-video or composite inputs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another TIVO
I can't say enough about this product. I liken this to the enthusiasm most have with Tivo. I bought it last summer when it first shipped. My first one did have a hard drive problem after a couple of days but Yamaha was incredibly responsive and shipped me a brand new one overnight. I was actually very surprised at how easy it was to "get going"....less than 15 minutes including loading my first CD to the hard drive.
Using it is also so straightforward that my kids were able to use it after only a couple of minutes of coaching...they all have their own playlists now which they just love. I actually moved out of my house for a remodel project and set it up in the temporary housing without incident. Also I've gone through one product firmware upgrade and the addition of one "client" also without incident. I have two "clients" in the house and they kids love the ability to play their playlists at the same time in two different rooms.
A couple of things to note...you really need a TV monitor hooked to the server to effectively navigate the menus to do anything more than "play" or "record" (which most people will likely do anyway). Also be aware of the "recording" and "burning" rules/constraints before buying so your expectations are set appropriately if you like to "burn" playlists to CD's for use on portable devices.

5-0 out of 5 stars very nice product
I bought one of the MusicCast systems as soon as it was available (after drooling over it at a couple of trade shows). The first thing I did was upgrade the harddrive to 200GB. Required a trip by my dealer to my house, but it gave me much more capacity. The interface is very intuitive. It's very fast at copying from cd to the internal disk. In the background, it converts from PCM to whatever MP3 compression level you've set for default (I always use 320KB). You can remove the PCM version to save space (I keep it for critical listening stuff, but my wife doesn't care, so her PCM's are deleted immediately :-) I have a couple of the MCX-A10 terminals scattered around the house. I've had them connect through ethernet and wireless and seems to work fine for both. Yamaha just released a software update that allows access to the MusicCast database through a web browser. This makes it very easy to fix titles, artists, etc. (You can plug a keyboard into the MusicCast, but it requires powering down which is too much trouble for me). I have to say that the most annoying thing about the MusicCast is the GraceNote CDDB database. Yamaha's implementation is great. The CDDB database is a mess. Album titles are inconistent, misspelled, etc. That's why having the browser editing is such a big deal to me. The best endorsement I can give is that my wife really likes the MusicCast. She was sceptical, but after seeing how it works and being able to browse her music, she's sold. Highly recommended for anyone who just wants to be able to enjoy their music without having to deal with PC's. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Enjoy high-quality video and multichannel surround audio with Yamaha's stylish silver YHT-550 all-in-one home theater. The system consists of Yamaha's DVS-5650 progressive-scan DVD player, the 5-piece NS-AP2500 speaker ensemble, the YST-SW010 subwoofer, plus Yamaha's HTR-5730 home theater receiver, which pumps 100 watts per channel x 6 discrete channels and offers a host of options for rendering the type of surround sound best suited to your taste or programming.

The powerful HTR-5730 receiver accepts the DVD player's Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, and DTS 5.1-channel surround signals and routes each channel to its designated speaker. Additionally, the receiver's Silent Cinema and Night Listening modes enhance headphone and low-level listening, respectively, while Yamaha's 32-bit Cinema-DSP processing gives you an additional 24 surround effects to enhance your movies and music. The receiver offers a total of 4 A/V inputs. The tuner section offers 40-station AM/FM preset tuning.

Yamaha's single-disc DVS-5650 spins DVD-Video, VCD, SVCD, CD-R/CD-RW, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW, MP3 CD, and JPEG image CDs (including mixed-mode MP3/JPEG CDs), putting a range of audio and video media at your disposal. The player features both interlaced (for standard TVs) and progressive-scan component-video outputs (for use with compatible HD or HD-ready TVs). Other features include picture zoom, shuffle play, repeat play, and parental controls (disc lock and password protection).

The 6-speaker complement includes the 5-speaker NS-AP2500 for the front, center, and surround speakers and Yamaha's YST-SW010 subwoofer for deep bass, which is important for effective home theater sound. Each speaker in the NS-AP2500 ensemble uses a sealed, acoustic-suspension design with a 3-inch woofer and a .5-inch soft-dome tweeter. The center speaker houses dual 2.5-inch drivers for broader dispersion of midrange frequencies--critical for clarity of dialogue and other center-channel information.

The 100-watt, 6.5-inch subwoofer uses Yamaha's patented Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST), which generates incredible bass from its small enclosure. Advanced YST uses negative-impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass.

QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses a down-firing driver with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate sound with equal effectiveness in all directions. The sub's individual volume control permits the perfect matching of the sub's output to the overall volume of the system. The sub has a signal-sensing circuit, too. When it detects an audio signal, it powers right up. When it senses no signal for several minutes, it shuts itself off.

All speakers included with the YHT-550 feature magnetic shielding, so they can be placed near a TV or monitor and cause no picture degradation.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality, excellent product Except the Remote Control
I am not an audio expert but really liked the quality and features for both the receiver and the progressive scan DVD player. Speakers are good too. Some problems that I noticed during setup are:

1. For some reason the Yamaha Universal remote control that comes with 5540 AV receiver does not seem to control the Yamaha's own high end DVD player that came with YHT-800!! In fact, I had no problem programming Samsung DVD player with the Yamaha receiver.
2. The remote also does not work with Echostar (webtv) DishPlayer satellite decoder. So, I have to use three remotes - one for receiver, one for DVD and one for satellite box. The overall remote design is good though.
3. The s-video input signal on 5550 receiver only seems to work with Yamaha DVD. Worse even, it appears that you either need to connect all video components to S-video mode or all of them to RCA composite mode for Video-out-to-Monitor to work. My VCR has no S-video out. Hence, I had to use all RCA jacks and miss out on using high quality video output from my DVD and DBS box.

Overall, I like the YHT-800 system and hope to resolve remote control issues with Yamaha tech support. I hope I don't need to buy $150 learning remote from Yamaha. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Designed in Yamaha's traditional, unobtrusive black with a high-style piano-gloss speaker system, Yamaha's YHT-450 delivers good looks and quality sound for music and movie lovers with modest budgets. The system consists of the 6-piece, wood-finished NS-AP4400 speaker ensemble, the YST-SW015 subwoofer, and the trusty HTR-5740 home theater receiver, which pumps 100 watts per channel x 6 discrete channels and offers a host of options for rendering the type of surround sound best suited to your taste or programming.

The HTR-5740 is a powerful and versatile tuner and receiver that accepts a DVD player's Dolby Digital and Dolby EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, and DTS/DTS-ES surround signals (5.1- and 6.1-channel formats) and routes each channel to its designated speaker. Additionally, the receiver's 192 kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter renders pristine sound from CDs and DVDs with linear-PCM (uncompressed) sound, while Yamaha's 32-bit Cinema-DSP processing gives you an additional 29 surround effects to enhance your movies and music. Front-panel audio/video inputs make it easy to play games or view camcorder footage through your theater, and the receiver offers a total of 4 A/V inputs, 2 of which handle component-video sources. The tuner section offers 40-station AM/FM preset tuning.

The 7-speaker complement includes the piano-black NS-AP4400 system for the front, center, and surround speakers and Yamaha's YST-SW015 subwoofer for deep bass, which is important for effective home theater sound. The NS-AP4400 ensemble features large, 3-way floorstanding front left/right speakers with 6.5-inch woofers, 3-inch midrange drivers, and .5-inch tweeters. The wide center-channel speaker is perfectly configured for TV placement, broad sound dispersion, and clear, focused sound from its dual 4-inch woofers and .5-inch tweeter. The three compact rear-surround speakers all use a 2-way design with 3-inch cones and matching .5-inch tweeters for seamless sound, all the way around.

The 120-watt, 8-inch subwoofer offers Yamaha's patented Advanced Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST), which generates incredible bass from its small enclosure. Advanced YST uses negative-impedance feedback in the amp and a Helmholtz resonator in the speaker to provide strong and accurate bass.

QD-Bass (Quatre Dispersion Bass) technology uses a down-firing driver with square, pyramid-shaped reflective plates to radiate sound with equal effectiveness in all directions. The sub's individual volume control permits the perfect matching of the sub's output to the overall volume of the system. The sub has a signal-sensing circuit, too. When it detects an audio signal, it powers right up. When it senses no signal for several minutes, it shuts itself off.

Yamaha's BASS (Bass Action Selector Switch) tailors the sub's output for either video or music at the touch of a switch. The sub offers a continuously variable crossover (50 to 150 Hz) so you can carefully tailor the upper end of its output with the lower end of your main speakers' audible output.

All speakers included with the YHT-450 feature magnetic shielding, so they can be placed near a TV or monitor and cause no picture degradation.

4-0 out of 5 stars gorgeous looking, sounds ok too
I bought the YHT-450 to replace my Klipsch Promedia 4.1's. The amp in those burned out, probably due to the lack of external heat sink on the subwoofer where it is housed. It always made me nervous when the back panel of the subwoofer got too hot to touch. I was in no hurry to drop $350 on the newest Promedias.

I saw the YHT-450 at Best Buy. The wooden speaker boxes with piano black
finish caught my eye. Next to it, the silver plastic systems looked like
cheap garbage. I couldn't find any reviews online, and the specs were
reported inconsistently, even on the manufacturer's site. What a mess!

I did observe that the included receiver (HTR-5740) retails at $299 and
the subwoofer (YST-SW015) is $99, so I took a chance and bought it online,
figuring that I could just use my Klipsch satellites if the included speakers
turned out to be garbage.

The packaging is impressive. It just screams "quality!" In the big box are
four separate boxes, apparently retail packages for the receiver, subwoofer,
mains, and rears. My cats loved it.

Here are the specs, straight from the included documentation:

Mains(2): 6 1/2" pulp cone, 3 1/5" pulp cone, 4/5" soft dome, 50Hz-28kHz
Center(1): 2 x 4" pulp cone, 4/5" soft dome, 80Hz-28kHz
Rear(3): 4" pulp cone, 1/2" balance dome, 90Hz-28kHz
Sub(1): 6 1/2" cone, 70W, 30-200Hz, variable cut
Receiver: 6 x 85W

My sound review is based solely on performance with cd audio. The 2.1 sound is very good! The larger woofers in the mains give body to the sound that my old Klipsch satellites lacked. The subwoofer is only fair, not delivering much below 40Hz. It does flesh out the uneven low-end response of the mains. With the cutoff set to the minimum value of 50, the sound is mostly crisp and cIear.

I plugged in two of the rear speakers to the front channels to see what they
could do. The mids are too strong. My old Klipsch satellites sound better.
The center speaker has the same tweeter as the mains, so it probably has more presence - I didn't try it as a main.

The receiver is powerful, with no noticeable distortion even at high volume.
I don't see where the advertised 700W comes from - I count 585W - but it's
plenty loud. I don't want much more than low distortion from the amplifier and I have no complaints here

In summary, I'm quite happy with this purchase. The piano-black finish on the speakers is gorgeous and classy. CD audio through the mains and the subwoofer sounds good enough to justify the price I payed, $407.55 delivered. The rear speakers are mediocre; a system sporting five of these would get 3/5 at best. Thankfully Yamaha came through with a nice-sounding pair of front speakers. I will eventually replace the subwoofer with one having better range. I give this 4/5, 5/5 if somebody will come steal the three shabby rear speakers from me. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars YHT - a great value
I just bought this system sans the DVD player (I already had a Sony 5-disc changer). I also had a JBL PB12 subwoofer that I added to this system in addition to the subwoofer that came with the system. In short, I think this is a great value for the money! The channel separation is clear, the speakers offer a crisp sound (though slightly tinny w/o my 12-inch sub). The receiver offers a myriad of customizable options that will allow you to tailor the sound to the size and dynamics of your room. I found the setup to be easier than anticipated as well. It took about 2 hours to unhook my previous system and get this one up and running. Sure, there are better (and more expensive) systems out there, but for the price I don't think you'll find anything better. I'm very pleased with mine. ... Read more
