Yamaha YSP-5600 review

 

Immersive sound from a single soundbar? No one does it quite like Yamaha

Excellent surround sound ; Good impression of height ; Expansive, open soundfield ; Easy to use and set up ; Plenty of streaming features

Could have more insight and dynamic subtlety ; The large design won’t suit all spaces ; Expensive

The YSP-5600 delivers an exciting, immersive performance with superb overhead surround sound and plenty of great features

Yamaha YSP-5600: A promising yet expensive take on a Dolby Atmos sound bar

 

The expensive Yamaha YSP-5600 sound bar projects a huge sound field, and no other sound bar can produce as immersive an experience, but you'll need to buy an additional subwoofer.

The Yamaha YSP-5600 is the first sound bar to offer Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support. It gives more spacious and immersive surround effects than any other sound bar we've tested. The system includes Yamaha's MusicCast, one of the better multiroom music...

As sound bars go it's really tall and expensive, and you'll need to add a subwoofer. It needs to be wall-mounted as it can move around the tabletop when bumped. Some cheaper sound bars have better overall audio quality.

The Yamaha YSP-5600 projects a huge sound field -- no other sound bar can produce as immersive an experience -- but it can sound thin, and dynamic punch is limited.

Yamaha YSP-5600 sound bar review

 

Yamaha's YSP-5600 is the easiest way give your home theater jaw-dropping 3D surround sound

Powerful Dolby Atmos/DTS:X virtual surround sound ; Feature-rich ; Extremely detailed dialog and sound effects ; Easy to use

Too bulky for some setups ; Expensive ; Tight sweet spot for surround sound

At a cost that’s far more than most sound bar setups — without all their purpose-built convenience — the YSP-5600 sits in a somewhat awkward position on the sound bar scale. Still, with all its caveats, Yamaha has loaded some truly brilliant sound...

Yamaha YSP-5600 7.1.2-Channel Soundbar Reviewed

 

Greg Handy auditions Yamaha's YSP-5600 soundbar, an Atmos-capable 7.1.2-channel soundbar with HDMI video switching, Bluetooth, and MusicCast multiroom audio support.

The Yamaha YSP-5600 is a stunning product within the world of soundbars. It successfully utilizes a very sophisticated approach to achieve both traditional surround sound and immersive 3D sound. Although it does not quite compete sonically with the...

Expert review by : Darryl Wilkinson (soundandvision.com)

Yamaha YSP-5600 Soundbar Review

 

It's pricey, but outstanding sonic performance and an impressive list of useful features makes the Yamaha YSP-5600 one of the best overall soundbar values on the market.

Dolby Atmos and (via future upgrade) DTS: X; MusicCast, AirPlay, Bluetooth (both in and out), and Wi-Fi for music streaming

Larger than most soundbars; Remote control isn’t backlit

Good product but showing its age

 

I bought this as a replacement for a YSP3300. Sound quality is fairly good but its showing it's age as now five years since launch. I am pretty sure there is a version 2 available in USA and I believe that has more HDCP 2.2 HDMI inputs than the uk...
