I got this set up with a Sony 46" bravia and a Sony bluray player and this just floods the whole living room with perfect sound ..I have had serveral sound bars from Pyle to Dynavox and Sony sound systems and i have to say this one is the BEST i have ever heard .The center sound bar sits perfectly over my sony bluray player (with stands mounted) and under the tv and the sub is on the second shelf all looks and sounds great ..

For the price I payed at [@] ([$]) this was a good buy. I do however think that the sound clarity could be better. Particularly it is difficult to hear voices, they easily become murky. Most likely this could be solved by better adjustment/calibration capabilities. It is not possible to adjust the sound too much, just bass/treble and balance between speakers. A full equalizer and a way to save the sound profiles would most likely have made this piece much better. Surround sound feel is pretty good with Bluray and DVD with latest surround features. Not like in the theater, but that can hardly be expected.

Good investment and goes very well with my Sharp Aquos TV. Fits perfectly and interfaces better than I could hope. Nice unit with great sound.
Great sound for the money

I bought this system to replace a stereo systemand the sound from the tv. After reading several reviews about this system and other systems I decided to purchase this system. The set-up was somewhat easy, and the sound is great. My only complaint is trying to preset radio stations for the FM tuner is quite a challenge. I have read and re-read the instructions and still not sure how to do this.

An Awesome Enhancement to my HD TV

About Me Audiophile, Practical, Pro Audio / DJ
I truly enjoy great sound, but my wife has an aversion to wires. Seeing the wire of a subwoofer outside the cabinet was a sore spot. When I saw the YHT-S400 with subwoofer integrated in the receiver, I knew that I would be able to get the sound I enjoy without exposing any wires. We were both happy with the appearance and delighted with the sound quality.
Not as impressed as I wanted to be

About Me Practical
Tried to use the HDMI connections - PS3, cable box and BluRay player to Yamaha, then from Yamaha to TV. All was okay until I tried to use the TV's external speaker out connections. No audio. This was to be for the wireless headphone for my wife to use at night. Had to move all HDMI connections to the TV, then use optical connection from TV to Yamaha unit. Works okay, but not what I wanted to do. Sound is good, like the settings features. Would recommend to a friend, much better than TV speakers.

About Me Tech Savvy
Bought this to replace Bose Cinemate system. Much easier to install with play through as all signals go through the HDMI cable into the Yamaha, and then the video signal is passed back through to the television. We were able to get rid of cables and still get great picture. I do not use 3D, so I cannot comment on that pass through. The sound, though not truly surrounding, is great. You can hear voices clearly, music sounds terrific, and the bass easily can get to picture shaking levels. I would easily recommend this over the Bose system.
Nice for the price

About Me Audiophile, Movie Enthusiast
A nice system. Definately an upgrade to using your TV's built in speakers. Not as good as having a multiple speaker system. Does sound very good with blue ray. The set up could've been much easier with a well documented manual. Would be nice if manual gave a code for using a universal remote. Have found that connecting an ipod works well hooking it up through the analog connection. Don't need to get the optional ipod docking station. Only drawback is the ipod doesn't charge this way, but sounds great.
