Great sounds quality without breaking the bank,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yamaha YSP600BL Black Home Cinema Digital Sound Projector (Electronics)
Bought one of these for my PS3 which is used in the living room for music, video, blu-ray and gaming. The PS3 connects the unit via HDMI and then another HDMI cable connects the sound projector to the TV (note that HDMI cables are not included). Install was very simple and took 5 mins. It would have taken longer but I hadn't released that the sound projector's on-screen menu's only work via a component phone connection (lead included). The supplied microphone allows for automatic setup of the projector (takes a few mins for it to calibrate). Sound projector did come with a optical cable which I used to connect the TV.
Remote control included with the unit can be configured to emulate DVD/TV signals but only for basis operations so you'll still need your other remotes.
Sound quality is excellent however do not expect it to give you the same surround sound as a conventional 5.1 speaker system. However if you can't or don't want a conventional system this is a great compromise. Even though the unit doesn't come with a subwoofer the sound quality on games and films is impressive however the system supports a subwoofer so I intend to add one later.
Gripes, turning on the TV/PS3 and projector can involve 2 remotes it would have been nice if it could have been a little smarter for automation. However its not a deal breaker.
So all in this is a impressive unit which provides great performance and doesn't break the bank.
