Yamaha YSP-1400

 

The YSP-1400 brings big sound to a smaller budget, delivering great value surround sound

Big, enveloping sound ; Detailed and dynamic ; Simple set-up ; Responsive app

Chunky design ; No HDMI input

If you’re after a big, enveloping sound but don’t have the space for several speakers dotted around your room, the YSP-1400 offers an experience that isn’t trumped until you spend quite a lot more.

Yamaha YSP-1400 review

 

Lots of sound bars promise to create "virtual" surround sound from a single speaker enclosure, but Yamaha's Digital Sound Projector line have historically been the only models that can actually do it well. It's an impressive feat, accomplished by...

Getting a true surround sound signal to the YSP-1400 can be difficult. While it does sound more spacious than a standard sound bar, it doesn't match the true virtual surround magic of Yamaha's pricier sound bars. And the lack of an external subwoofer...

Yamaha's YSP-1400 brings the company's Digital Sound Projector technology to a budget price point, but a couple of caveats keep it from being a standout sound bar.

Yamaha YSP-1400 Digital Sound Projector Review

 

The Yamaha YSP-1400 is attempting to bring Yamaha's vaunted "beaming" technology to the masses at an affordable price. While the price is fair, the performance isn't quite up to expectations.

App Control ; Enough inputs ; Subwoofer output ; Bluetooth works well ; IR Pass Through for Blocked TV IR Receivers

Sibilant ; Even in optimal room, surround effect unconvincing ; Wall mounting may look a little goofy ; Bass light ; Weak stereo separation

Yamaha YSP-1400 Digital Sound Projector

 

The Yamaha YSP-1400 Digital Sound Projector provides respectable surround sound and plenty of volume, although with a prominent treble.

Good volume ; Decent bass for a unit sans subwoofer ; Remote control repeater function ; Bluetooth support, including app

Sound excessively bright

The Yamaha YSP-1400 Digital Sound Projector is a good unit, able to deliver content with power and some sense of surround sound and with respectable bass, all at a decent price. The nifty control app adds to the Bluetooth capabilities to make it very...

Dialogue enhancement, Can learn the TVs remote

Audio adjustments can vary widely depending on the room's configuration

The YSP-1400 is the latest addition to Yamaha’s well received line of sound projectors. $449.95 doesn’t just buy a quality sound bar for listening to audio coming from straight ahead, but adds surround through the clever application of “bouncing”...
