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 soundbar: Surrounded by sound, not speakers

 

Three-dimensional surround sound without a room full of speakers? Yamaha breaks new ground with the first Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbar

For huge home cinema sound with a manageable footprint, the YSP-5600 may win alot of friends - I’m going to hold off any final judgment until I can hear the effect in a quiet living room rather than a riotous trade show, but I’m quietly optimistic. The...

Yamaha YSP-5600 sound bar review

 

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

 

Dolby Atmos and its still-reclusive neighbor DTS:X are the newest sound formats for use in the home, promising more enveloping sound than ever thanks to upward-firing speakers. Movies that support the format are still rare, but the ones we've heard can...

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 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...
