Yamaha's YSP-5100 Digital Sound Projector goes a step further than most sound bars by combining the AV receiver and surround sound speakers into a single stylish unit. The YSP-5100 works by having 40 separate beam drivers combined with two woofers and tweeters to deliver sound to exactly where it's needed by bouncing it off the walls. The YSP-5100 model is ideal for TVs from 42" upwards
IntelliBeam automated system calibration means you'll get the best sound possible without a complex set-up procedure. There's no need to run cable for satellite speakers placed around the room, you even save shelf space because Yamaha have built the AV receiver & amplifier into the unit itself.
Various mounting options are available in the form of the SPM-K30 wall bracket, the YTS-T500 intergrated TV & sound bar pedestal and the YTS-F500 TV & soundbar floor stand with shelf.
The YSP-5100 is capable of decoding the two lossless HD audio formats which deliver sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, offering a true high-definition home theater experience. As well as Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution.
IntelliBeam automatically sets the sound beam angles and modes for the best surround sound, while optimising the volume and frequency responce of each beam. Your room becomes an ideal theatre space in just a few minutes.
No more sudden blasts of sound! This welcome feature maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programmes, commercials and input sources. You switch it on and off.
You can use your YSP-5100 with an iPod without having to connect any cables. The AirWired link transmits uncompressed data so there is no loss of signal data, ensuring maximum sound quality.
When the YSP-5100 are connected to a CEC-compatible TV, it will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote unit to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components.
CINEMA DSP creates complex sound fields based on acoustic patterns developed from a vast database of actual venues and input from film sound technicians, making you feel as though you are inside the scene you are watching.
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. This function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should.
Look for the "Made for iPod and iPhone" logo to find electronic accessories designed to connect specifically to an iPod or iPhone and certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards.
