Yamaha YSP-2500 review

 

Calling the sound that comes out of a regular soundbar 'surround sound' is like saying that watching the World Cup on TV is the same as being in the stadium. But, judging from marketing literature, it's a good selling feature.

Neat design; good build quality; connectivity; convincing surround sound; HD audio decoding; superb sonic quality; versatile DSP modes

Bluetooth metadata not shown on display; remote control not backlit/non-learning

Yamaha YSP-2500

 

A full 5.1 speaker system is the best way to experience home cinema, but for many people practicalities such as room layout, budget and clutter-fearing partners make it an impossible dream.

Enveloping surround sound ; Superb build quality and elegant design ; Extensive feature list

Surround effect dependent on room layout ; More complicated than most soundbars ; Relatively expensive

Yamaha’s fantastic soundbar delivers home cinema thrills like no other, while a packed feature list and killer design seal the deal.

Yamaha YSP-2500 review

 

Best soundbar £600+, Awards 2014. Yamaha's done it again – a superbly talented soundbar delivering captivating sound

Exciting, expansive surround sound Good scale Plenty of punch Great build and design

Needs sympathetic placement and room acoustics to get a convincing effect

The YSP-2500’s expansive soundfield, punch and scale are impressive, and it’s the most appealing solution for those that want cinema-style sound without going the full hog with a 5.1 system. MORE: Awards 2014 - all the winners

  (Rating Hidden)

The Yamaha YSP-2500 is a premium sound bar with a price to match. There are some lofty claims about its performance, with a simulated surround sound mode being one of the main selling points. We've tested Best Buys that cost a third as much as this...

Yamaha YSP-2500 Soundbar Review

 

Yamaha have been pushing the boundaries of soundbars for years but does the YSP-2500 deliver that killer combination of design, performance and price?

Excellent audio quality ; Sound beam technology ; Feature packed ; Attractive design and finish ; Great build quality ; Price

May not suit every room

If it's a soundbar that you're after then you'll be hard pushed to find a better performer for the money than the Yamaha YSP-2500. The company's long association with soundbars shows through in every aspect of the YSP-2500's design and there's an...

Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound Bar with Subwoofer Review

More consistency in calibration, as calibration may not work in some rooms ; Improved surround sound, especially with Blu-ray movies ; Less dependency on location of sub, which is important as it is somewhat directional

Yamaha's YSP-2500 throws a powerful burst of surround sound imagery that pulls you in, and doesn't let go

Edging towards the price point of diminishing returns in the sound bar genre, Yamaha’s YSP-2500 may not be cheap, but it offers a powerful burst of audio imagery that pulls you into the action and refuses to let go. While music isn’t its forte,...

Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer Review

 

This review of the new Yamaha YSP-2500 Sound bar explores whether you can get true surround sound out of a simple sound bar at a modest price. A more affordable version of the YSP-3300 and YSP-4300.

Discrete surround sound from a single sound bar ; Easy auto-setup with a user-friendly features ; A more affordable version of Yamaha's YSP technology

Even at the middle of Yamaha's YSP product range, still more costly than most soundbars

Yamaha YSP-2500: The true entry-level digital sound projector

 

Yamaha has a wide range of digital sound projectors and after checking out their new entry-level sometime ago, we are now taking a look at the next model up the YSP hierarchy - the YSP-2500 sound bar.

Excellent audio performance ; Superb subwoofer ; Believable surround sound ; Lots of inputs, Bluetooth connectivity ; Support for 4K/60fps pass-through

No USB port ; Looks weird if mounted on walls ; Dialogue sometimes muffled ; Pricey but justifiable

To sum up, if you are looking for a true surround sound experience from a minimal speaker setup, the YSP-2500 will not disappoint. And this is especially true for readers who want to buy into the Yamaha digital sound projector experience. The YSP-2500...
