5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful sound system, 19 Aug. 2009
We bought this item to go with our 42" plasma as we found the tv sound would vary so much between analogue, sat and dvd, and the sound was very flat and dialogue could swallowed up by background music.

The yamaha sound projector has been a revelation. If you have equipment with HDMI outputs they can be routed through the unit. Just plug them in, press the appropriate button on the handset (TV, SAT, DVD and AUX etc) and switch your tv to the channel used for HDMI connections or if you do not have hdmi there are two composite connections. One unexpected bonus was that we no longer experience the HDCP problems we had encountered previously which is great.

Very easy to set up and to use. Can certainly hear all the dialogue we previously missed and sound does appear to come at you from all directions. We can now hear every word of the dialogue.

Our lounge is about 15ft square and this system works very well, certainly a lot better than having speakers and cables trailing all over the place and having had a 5.1 home cinema system in the past I would say that this compares very well. Especially good if you are watching in HD as the sound really comes alive.

I expect purists would say it is no where as good as a fully fledged 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, however, we are more than pleased with it and it has enhanced our tv viewing. We have connected it up to our Sky HD box and to a samsung h1080 dvd player which upgrades dvds to full HD. As a whole this has made watching dvds a pleasure and will certainly be rewatching a lot of them.
