Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yamaha YSP600BL Black Home Cinema Digital Sound Projector (Electronics)
was not happy with the sound from my sony bravia telly. distorts at louder volume and hard to hear some conversations, so wanted a speaker system to improve the sound. did not want lots of wires/speakers, so this seemed to fit the bill.
very impressed. easy to set up. looks good quality. sounds fab - even normal TV programmes sound much much better through this.
not convinced I'm getting true surround sound out of this, but haven't spent much time trying to optimize the settings - it seems obvious that a single bar is never going to compete with multiple speakers to give true surround sound, but this is a compromise I was happy with not to have speakers everywhere. and the sound really is such an improvement on the telly speakers.
UPDATE Sept 2010
just plugged in blu-ray. was impressed before with this on dvd. but on blu-ray? omg. the step-up in sound quality is huge. got that real cinema feel, with the rumble and surround sound that makes your head turn. other reviewers have added a sub-woofer - to me, is very impressive without and I think the neighbours may be unhappy without the addition of a subwoofer!
very happy and impressed with this piece of kit
