Yamaha YSP-5100 review

 

By far the best virtual surround solution we've come across

Convincing virtual surround sound ; Great punch and detail ; Huge spec ; it's a real doddle to set up under your TV

Some may crave deeper bass

This is the best virtual surround solution by far that we've come across

Very expensive; doesn't sound appreciably better than step-down YSP-4100; doesn't support 3D video pass-through; no subwoofer included; much larger than many competing models; a true 5.1 home theater system sounds better.

The Yamaha YSP-5100 sound bar has an outstanding assortment of features and best-in-class virtual surround, but it's very expensive and doesn't sound much better than the step-down YSP-4100.

Yamaha YSP5100

 

Not used this to full potential yet but Solid build Good sound reproduction Great alternative to expensive surround system

Not for the audiophile. Should have included the iPod and sub woofer wireless external equipment as standard after all it's ready at the sound bar end. You may want to add a sub woofer.
