Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector, Model YSP3300BL

One of the greatest traits of flat panel TVs—their minimal depth—is also responsible for their main drawback: the thin, integrated speakers are usually underpowered. The Yamaha YSP-3300 Digital Sound Projector rectifies that problem, adding cinema-quality surround sound in a stylish, compact unit. Its minimalist construction will complement the design of any TV, and is perfect for situations where you can't run cables for multiple surround sound speakers.

Behind the unassuming façade hides a row of 16 individual beam drivers, flanked by a pair of 2 ½" full-range drivers. This speaker array, powered by Yamaha YSP digital sound processing technology, is able to create a variety of listening modes by controlling the direction of sound waves. The YSP-3300 soundbar can create simple stereo, true 7.1 surround sound, and everything in between. This ultra-precise system can even use sound beams to "target" a single listening location, letting you enjoy a movie late at night, without the sound disturbing the rest of the home.

If this seems like a complicated system, there's no need to worry. The Yamaha YSP-3300 system was made with easy setup in mind. Simply connect it to your TV with an HDMI cable. The wireless subwoofer will automatically sync with the soundbar. Plug in the included calibration microphone, and the IntelliBeam system automatically optimizes the setup for your specific room. Once done, you're ready to enjoy theater-quality sound with all of your movies, TV shows and music.

While easy to use, the Yamaha YSP-3300 still has many features that advanced users will appreciate. Four HDMI inputs on the back of the unit let you connect a DVR, Blu-Ray player, video-game system and any other audio components in your home theater system. You'll also find connections for digital optical, digital coaxial and analog audio sources. Supporting both 3D and 4K pass-through, this Yamaha soundbar can keep pace with rapidly-advancing entertainment technology. With an optional transmitter, you can wirelessly stream music right to the Yamaha soundbar from your iPhone, tablet or computer. And a built-in IR repeater will ensure you can still operate your TV from a distance, even if the YSP-3300 covers up the IR receiver on your TV.

If you're tired of tinny sound from your LED TVs built-in speakers, but a rental agreement prevents you from running wires for surround sound speakers, the Yamaha YSP-3300 Soundbar is the perfect solution.

Features:

  • Sound Bar Produces High Quality, Expansive Surround Experience
    The sound bar uses 16 array speakers controlled by Yamaha's YSP technology plus two powerful 2 1/2” (6.5 cm) woofer units in a large cabinet to deliver excellent sound quality with clearly positioned dialogue and superb surround effects. An aluminum body dampens unwanted vibrations. The result is an expansive sound field that will thrill you with its three-dimensional properties and outstanding imaging
  • Wireless Subwoofer with Advanced YST Technology Reproduce Rich and Powerful Bass
    The subwoofer has a large 6 1/2” (16 cm) driver and uses Yamaha's exclusive Advanced YST technology to produce clear, powerful bass. The circuit board has an ideal grounding pattern that ensures stable current supply. The Linear Port improves sound dispersion and is designed to minimize unnecessary noise. Both music and movie sound effects are reproduced with an astounding sense of presence
  • Wireless Streaming with High Sound Quality from iPod/iPhone/iPad or Mac/PC
    The optional YIT-W12 Wireless Transmitter, used with the YSP-3300, lets you enjoy music wirelessly from your iPod/iPhone/iPad or Mac/PC. Yamaha-developed yAired technology provides uncompressed linear PCM transmission for consistently clear, accurate sound output
  • Digital Sound Projector Technology Reproduces True Surround Sound
    The YSP-3300 achieves actual (not virtual) surround sound by producing beams of sound and using advanced processing to control their directions. You hear real 7.1-channel surround sound with natural ambience and excellent imaging. Yamaha technology also provides the additional benefits of a wide "sweet-spot" listening area and the elimination of listening fatigue
  • HD Audio Format Decoding
    The YSP-3300 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
  • 10 CINEMA DSP Programs
    Yamaha’s ultra-sophisticated CINEMA DSP technology creates thrillingly realistic soundscapes in any room. You can select 10 different programs, including three "Movie," three "Music" and four "Entertainment" programs
  • Versatile Listening Modes
    The YSP-3300 achieves true surround sound by directing sound beams off walls to reach the listener from various angles. The main mode is 5 BeamPlus2 for 7-channel sources. In addition, there are a wide variety of other listening modes. You can select Stereo + 3 BeamPlus2, 5 Beam, Stereo + 3 Beam, 3 Beam, Stereo, Target and My Surround
  • IntelliBeam Automatically Sets the Optimum Sound Field
    This Yamaha exclusive feature ensures optimum multichannel sound reproduction with accurate image location. By monitoring and analyzing the sound with the microphone included with the YSP-3300, IntelliBeam automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimizing the level and frequency response of each beam. This makes initial setup both extremely simple and acoustically perfect
  • HDMI (4 in/1 out) with 4K Pass-through and 3D
    Four HDMI inputs mean you can connect four high quality digital sources, each with just a single cable. The inputs support 4K pass-through, which allows the transmission of next-generation super high-resolution images and the transmission of 3D video
  • Compressed 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
  • UniVolume Maintains the Same Volume Level
    This welcome feature, made possible by Yamaha-developed technology, maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. It can be switched on and off
  • Easy Positioning in Front of a TV
    Only 3 3/8” (86 mm) high, the YSP-3300 can easily be placed in front of your TV without blocking the screen. The height can be adjusted in two levels by adding included spacers. It is also wall mountable with optional brackets
  • Design Conveys Luxury and Sophistication
    The top surface of the sound bar is made of rigid aluminum with an elegant, brushed-metal finish, for a look that is stylish and imparts a strong feel of luxury. The sides have a mirror finish that harmonizes beautifully with flat-panel TVs
  • Wireless Active Subwoofer Allows Flexible Placement
    This subwoofer eliminates the need to connect cables, so setup is faster and easier. It can be used in either a horizontal or a vertical position, providing additional flexibility. This is a convenient subwoofer that delivers powerful, high-quality bass sound
  • HDMI CEC Functionality
    When connected to a CEC-compatible TV, the YSP-3300 will turn on and off together with the TV and you can use the TV remote unit to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components
  • TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission
    Even if the YSP-3300 blocks the TV’s remote control signal, the TV Remote Repeater on the rear transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected
  • Memory Function for Recording Up to Three of Your Favorite Settings
    You can store three groups of settings for quick recall. Settings include playback mode, CINEMA DSP mode and IntelliBeam measurement results
  • ECO Mode for Energy Conservation
    When enabled, the display turns off and the unit enters a standby mode under certain conditions, such as when a signal is not received for 30 minutes

      Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector:

      Never thought buying the YSP would bring me closer to the neighbors. My neighbors stopped by last night. It seems my "Lord of the Rings" movie night disturbed their dinner.

      I did set up the YSP on auto calibrate for surround effect, but since my room is rectangular in shape with the TV/YSP in one corner. The auto calibrate results weren't all that great. The soundbar does sound fantastic, you get a feeling of depth to the sound. I've tried some 3D surround sound demos from youtube, once with TV speakers and then again with the YSP. The YSP sounds phenomenal. The TV speakers just give you a feeling of left/right channels and then the volume of the channels overall. There's no depth to the sound, the YSP on the other hand gives you a feeling of immersive depth to the sound. You can clearly make out that the sound is coming from different places in a room (in a movie) when a movie is being played. I tried playing Pandora on my TV from the smart hub but in stereo mode I didn't see much of a difference between the YSP and the TV speakers. It did sound good and the sub woofer gives it an extra kick.

      Yesterday afternoon I did manually calibrate the different channels for the YSP and got all but one of the 5.1 channels setup. I cannot get the surround right channel right, maybe because its because of the shape of my room and where the couch is placed relative to the wall. I have a corner setup for my living room which is attached to a dining area. The couch is in front of the TV (10 feet away) with a 45 degree angle to the adjacent wall. It doesn't leave much room behind me to reflect sound off. I do have the FR, FL, C, SL channels manually calibrated with the appropriate 'beam angles'. I just used my own ears to figure if I liked what I was hearing. I don't have any definitive way to say if it's the right thing to do. All I did was keep adjusting the beam angles until I could hear the sound coming from the right place.

      I don't know how to adjust the 'beam distance' and 'focal length' parameters because I would need to draw out the layout of the room and use geometry to see exactly what it is I'm doing. I'm just too lazy to do that right now. I may do it sometime later in the week when I'm bored and have nothing better to do.

      Last night I was playing "LOTR" and maybe a tad bit too loud (as I was reminded by my neighbors ;)), there was a scene where the nazgul flies around Minas Tarith and you could hear the sound originate from the LF speakers and go all the way to the SL speakers. I could have sworn that it felt like the nazgul flew out of my TV and flew behind me on my left side. It was really cool to have that feeling.

      I'm going to tinker some more to get some effect for the right surround. I need to still figure out haw to use the 'beam distance' and 'focal length' settings. I may have to use measuring tape and the room layout diagram to know what I'm doing.

      For those who have the YSP, congratulations and I hope we enjoy the home theater experience it brings. And for those on the fence, who need a little more convincing, I'd say give this a try. While I cannot say that this is worth $1.5k or $1.8k but for me it was a decision of aesthetics without having to deal with a room littered with speakers. I'll build my dedicated speaker based home theater when I move to my own place, not while I'm renting.

        Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Projector:

        Installed my YSP-3300 to replace a pair of Phase Tech speakers. While not as robust as a surround system, this sound projector blows away my previous AVR/speaker combo. Excellent, accurate sound. Easy to install. MANY inputs allows elimination of AVR. Power is good, not great, but fine for my open 20' x 20' family room. I've been using stereo mode, not surround, due to open rooms, but sound is still excellent.
