Product Details

Yamaha 5.1 Channel Home Theater In A Box System - YHT393BK

Entry level HTiB system with 100W 5-channel A/V Receiver, 3D Ready 1080p-compatible HDMI repeater (4 in/1 out), iPod and Bluetooth compatibility, 4 SCENE buttons and a powerful 100W Subwoofer.

  • HDMI

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. With the ability to deliver crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience. HDMI can provide an interface between any audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV), over a single cable. Depending on the model of product, HDMI can support standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It can support all currently-available compressed audio formats (such as Dolby Digital and DTS) and most newer HDMI devices can support lossless digital audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™. (view the Specifications of each product for details on HDMI compatibility)

  • Dolby Pro Logic II

Improved version of Dolby Pro-Logic for music and movies. With a more intelligent matrix decoder, it is suitable for both stereo and surround-encoded sources. It offers “bass management” as well as the option of incorporating “width,” “dimension” and “panorama” controls.

  • DTS Digital Surround

The basic DTS 5.1 channel sound format. Uses a higher data rate than Dolby Digital.

  • CINEMA DSP Digital

Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects from ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater! The decoding circuitry performs Dolby Pro Logic IIx, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES (DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and DTS-ES Discrete 6.1), DTS Neo:6 and DTS 96/24 decoding with extreme accuracy, as well as all digital sound field processing.

  • SILENT CINEMA and Virtual CINEMA DSP

SILENT CINEMA makes it possible to hear large-scale surround sound through ordinary headphones! This is a variation of CINEMA DSP technology that Yamaha developed to let you listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front / center / presence speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers.

  • Compressed Music Enhancer

Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.

  • SCENE – A NEW LEVEL OF OPERATING EASE

Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Pressing a SCENE button automatically launches a number of operations that initiate play of the source controlled by that button. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browsing and selecting the settings is quickly accomplished by rotating the Input knob and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. The SCENE names can be changed also.

  • Advanced YST

Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (Advanced YST) is a unique system in which the speaker and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall performance.

  • Bluetooth

The Bluetooth® logo indicates that the product is equipped to use the optional YBA-10 Bluetooth® Wireless Audio Receiver that lets you connect the dock to the receiver and supports A2DP audio streaming. With the optional YBA-10 Bluetooth dock, you can enjoy music wirelessly from Bluetooth enabled mobile phones, portable devices, or personal computers. (view the Specifications of each product for Bluetooth® dock compatibility)

  • Made for iPod / Works with iPhone (Docking Station)

Made for iPod: The Made for iPod logo indicates that the product is equipped to use an optional Yamaha Universal iPod Dock that lets you connect your iPod to this product. With the optional dock you can listen to your music and operate the iPod via the product’s remote control while at the same time charging the battery on your iPod. Depending on your product’s specifications, some will allow you to use the On-Screen Display feature on your video monitor to navigate your music. Some products can even allow you to view your photos and movies from your iPod on your video monitor (view the Specifications of each product for iPod playback compatibility)

Works with iPhone: Look for the "Works with iPhone" logo to find electronic accessories designed to connect specifically to iPhone and certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards.

      I watch a lot of movies and this system is replacing an old but reliable KLH surround speaker system. Still trying to fine tune the speakers in my living room. I'm almost to where the sound should be. Overall, I'm satisfied with not only the sound quality but the size and cost, too.

          Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Home Theater In A Box System:

          These speakers were purchased to better the sound from our smaller flat screen television that's used primarily by my Nine year-old daughter. The TV is located in our "Loft" room and has stock, small, tinny sounding built in speakers. The sound from these new speakers is better than what I have at the moment for our larger, main TV in our Living Room. We're finding ourselves watching more TV in our loft now because the sound is so much better. I highly recommend this product. However, I recommend buying some slightly larger Speaker wire because the 24 gage wire they give you is really too dainty to trust when pulling it through your attic and down the walls of your house.

                  I decided on these as part of my overall upgrade from TV, receiver, and speakers. There was no problem connecting and setting up my surround sound. I was VERY surprised and pleased with the clarity and sharpness of the sound they produce. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

                    This speaker system was a replacement for Polk speakers that no longer sounded good. My system was top of the line and state of the art in 1996. These speakers sound great throughout the first level of the house and really give my older system a fabulous surrond sound. I would readily recommend the Yamaha system as an outstanding speaker replacement system.
