Neat, Tidy, Fantastic Sound - What more could you want!
on 26 November 2008
I purchased a YSP 600 as a compromise between the standard TV speakers and speakers all around the room (and hence the bit that nobody mentions- all the cabling!). In fact I've found the unit to barely be a compromise at all- it definitely sounds better than the TV and in fact isn't far removed from a room full of speakers. The projector itself is quite small- narrower than our TV. Placed on the shelf beneath, it doesn't draw attention to itself and looks neat and tidy. Setup was easy- place the projector where you want it and attach the little microphone and place it where you want to sit. Once you have done this, you start the auto setup program and the projector makes some strange noises (the cat wasn't impressed!) and after a few minutes it is all set up and ready to go.
The best bit about the unit is that you really do get sound behind you from a box in front of you- films with lots of effects happen around you rather than just in front. Even normal TV from our Sky box has some decent surround effects. There are various settings for directing sound at one point or just working in front of you but the normal setting works well enough most of the time. I am really happy with my decision and would encourage anybody looking for a mess free surround system to have a look at this box of tricks.
