Product Details

Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector, Model YSP2200

This extremely convenient Digital Sound Projector™ is low profile enough to fit neatly in front of a TV and is 3D compatible (HDMI V.1.4a).

Features:

Low Profile and Height Adjustable

  • The YSP-2200 is only 3 1/8" high, so you can place it in front of most flat screen TVs without blocking the picture. The height-adjustable feet let you achieve optimum positioning. The feet can also be removed, reducing the height of the speaker to only 2'.

Flexible-Placement of Subwoofer

  • The powerful yet slim subwoofer can be used vertically or horizontally, so you can place it inside or outside a rack. The sound has been tuned to perfectly match the YSP-2200.

Digital Sound Projector™ Technology

  • The YSP-2200 applies this sophisticated technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by focusing it through multiple beams. The center channel sound is heard directly, while sounds from other channels are heard after reflecting off walls. The result is true multi-channel surround sound that sounds just like a multi-speaker system – but without the need for extra speakers!

Designed for High Quality Sound

  • With a built-in 132W digital amplifier that efficiently drives all channels, an aluminium body that damps vibrations, precision sound tuning and optimum subwoofer matching, the YSP-2200 delivers 7.1-channel surround sound with outstanding clarity and linearity. The design is more elegant and less obtrusive than multiple speaker boxes.

Versatile Listening Modes Including 7.1-Channel Output Capability

  • The YSP-2200 achieves true surround sound by directing sound beams off the walls to reach the listener from various angles. The main mode is 5 BeamPlus2 for 7-channel sources. In addition, there is a wide variety of other listening modes. You can select 3 BeamPlus2 + Stereo, 5 Beam, Stereo + 3 Beam, 3 Beam, Stereo and My Surround.

11 CINEMA DSP Programs

  • Yamaha’s ultra-sophisticated CINEMA DSP technology creates thrillingly realistic soundscapes in any room. You can select 11 different programs, including three Movie, three Music and five Entertainment programs.

HD Audio Format Decoding

  • The YSP-2200 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray Disc players, as well as from all other digital sources.

1080p-Compatible HDMI V.1.4a

  • The YSP-2200 provides 3 in/1 out HDMI connections with support for 1080p resolution. HDMI V.1.4a is the latest version of the HDMI interface, featuring 3D for transmitting 3D video signals. Audio Return Channel lets you hear the TV sound from the YSP-2200 via a single HDMI cable, with no need for an extra optical cable. HDMI also provides the benefits of Deep Colour, x.v.Colour and Auto Lip-Sync.

CEC Compatibility

  • When the YSP-2200 can be connected to a CEC-compatible TV, such as a Panasonic VIERA Link compatible television, it will turn on and off simultaneously with the TV.

Music Enhancer

  • When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. This function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should.

IntelliBeam Automated System Calibration

  • This Yamaha exclusive feature ensures optimum multi-channel sound reproduction with accurate image location. By monitoring and analysing the sound with the microphone included with the YSP-2200, IntelliBeam automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimising the level and frequency response of each beam. This makes initial setup both extremely simple and acoustically perfect.

yAired Technology for Wireless Connections via Optional YID-W10The

  • YSP-2200 makes it easy to enjoy music from your iPod/iPhone via a wireless link. You also get outstanding sound quality, because yAired technology transmits uncompressed data so there is no loss of signal data, unlike systems that use Bluetooth technology to send compressed data. In addition, there is no delay time, ensuring that sound and video are always in sync.

    Used in conjunction with a wall mounted 58 inch Panasonic plasma that uses HDMI 1.4 in a family room. High wife acceptance factor is a must...clean install, few wires. The only wire that goes to YSP 2200 from the TV is one 3 meter HDMI cable which goes behind the wall. Cable box, Blu Ray, and other sound source, like iPod connect to YSP2200 which sits on a low console, which houses the bass module.

    Sound is very clear, especially dialog, when compared to TV speakers. Surround sound effects are surprisingly good. Verizon FIOS HD programming has sound appearing to come from behind you left and right, and above, in addition to the usual right left center info....all from a slim little bar.

    This unit is worth every penny in the family room. Simple to operate, clean looking, no custom installs of surround speakers, no dedicated AVR, or preamp/amp units, dedicated left right center speakers, no large subwoofer taking up space on the floor. This is the 80-90% solution for every day use. For my wife, it is a 98% solution. If there were no wires, and the functions could be integrated into the Motorola cable box remote (I have never tried, so I don't know if that is a limitation), she would be 100% happy.

    The sound is tinny and hollow and the unit doesn't automatically change sound modes based on the source - have to constantly change modes manually. Maybe I'm biased based on the fact we have a full home theater system in another part of our house. That said there are less costly units that would perform just as good. Also, why are there manual settings when you have an auto setup feature?

    Great sound and easy to use

      Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector:

      Simple one cord hook up to my LG tv. Love the sound of TV (movies, regular programming, or sports). My blu-Ray is hooked up with an HDMI cord to my tv, and perfectly syncs sound to this sound bar. The remote easily allows me to switch between tv shows (concerts, sports, etc.), and my iPhone music. I have a rather small living room, and this sound bar fills it (and other rooms, if I crank it up).

        Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector:

        Its a great product. Pay attention to the Dolby D and Dolby PL2 lights. The system works best if the Dolby D light is on. Most TVs support Dolby D -- you just need to set the proper settings. Xfinity has a problem sending Dolby D through the TV to a sound bar so that may be a bit of a challenge. In that case, the PL2 is the best you can do.

          Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector:

          I used to have a full-blown Yamaha surround sound system, but I'm getting arthritic enough that I don't want to go crawling around hooking up a wired system anymore. Because I loved the Yamaha units I've had before (2x) I wanted to stick with a name I have come to love. This system is exactly what I wanted it to be - it gives me that realistic surround-sound system in a single unit. No more crawling around hooking up any wires. I did find that I get a fuller sound by NOT hooking the unit up through the tv's audio-out, but I use an optical cable directly from the cable box / Roku unit / and Blu-Ray - using an optical cable splitter which goes into the Soundbar. Much fuller sound than when coming just from the tv. By not going through the HDMI cords' sound when carried from the various components and through the tv, but hooking up the soundbar directly to the components (and the splitter) I've attained a much deeper, rich sound. I absolutely LOVE this system.

Once the set up is done. You are ready to listen to a great surround system. For those doubting the surround effect.. DON'T! We were amazed to the amount of sound coming from behind us. Amazing system.. awesome sound. Lots of options to choose from for all aspects of your applications.

                  This is the third soundbar for my condo I've purchased, and will be the last. While the others have been nice upgrades to my t.v. speakers, this far outranges anything else I've heard. The sound is crystal clear and I'm discovering sounds in movies I wasn't even aware exsisted. And the surround effects? Truely amazing - the gap between this and a conventional surround system has become much closer.

                  And I love the HDMI connections that bring all my devices together.

                  But honestly, I expected no less from Yamaha.

                    Sell all your speakers.
                    Get the 2200.
                    Open the box.
                    Put yellow to yellow and green to green and proper HDMI
                    to HDMI, etc.
                    Enjoy the best sound from a television.
                    Oh, and thanks to Abt 's great team - Alan Martinez, Mark Bishop, and David Maillis and Patrick Bajorski!
                    Also, ignore Yamaha's statement and put the woofer in the nearest corner, preferably behind the TV.

                      Great product with almost too many setup options.Works great with my Panasonic products, Leave on all the time, even figured out how to use the comcast newer infinty remote to operate the unit.
