Yamaha Black Digital Sound Bar - YSP-5600


  • Real 3D Surround Sound Reproduction Realised in a Single Unit by Digital Surround Projector Technology
    Inside the unit's front grille are 44 precisely calculated and positioned speakers. In order to create 7-channel sound beams (Front left/right, Centre, Surround left/right, Height left/right), each of the speakers is controlled by and individual delay time and is driven with its own independent amplifier circuit. These beams are projected onto the walls and ceiling, to be reflected accurately to the listening position. This creates the same sound as real wall and ceiling speakers —not a virtual sound, but real 3D surround sound reproduction. In addition, the YSP-5600 uses the Surround channel sound beam for Surround Back, and the Surround channel is phantom merged to support the equivalent of up to 7.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X reproduction
  • Incorporates the First YSP to Create a Height Channel by Using Sound Beams from Specific Array Speakers
    Height channel audio playback is realised by placing six array speakers at each end of the unit (a total of 12). For these array speakers, 28mm diameter units are used. In order to obtain the maximum sound beam effect, they are mounted on an angled baffle and sound beam vertical control is adapted. Sound field reproduction is just as if real speakers were mounted on the ceiling, so you get great sound without the bother of mounting speakers and stringing wires
  • Height Channel Positions Can Be Precisely Adjusted to Match the Listening Position
    For reproduction of the latest surround sound formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the relationship between the listening position and the height channel locations is very important for faithful reproduction of the sound space. The YSP-5600 adjusts the angle of the sound beam directed at the ceiling allowing the height channel position to be matched to the listening position either manually or automatically. Even if the listening position relative to the display changes, you'll get the effect of the height channel for natural 3D surround sound
  • Directed Sound Beams Realise Distinct Height Channel Audio
    The height channels can be located as close to the listening position as the centre speakers, and their positions and sound quality have a large effect on the live performance feeling created by multi-dimensional sound. By using directed beams reflected just once off the ceiling for reproducing the height channels, the YSP-5600 obtains a sharp sound position and distinct sound, ensuring realistic reproduction of environmental sounds such as thunder. You'll experience the thrill of 3D surround sound that "rains from heaven."
  • Dialogue Lift Ensures Proper Dialogue Orientation
    With many soundbars positioned below the TV, especially when the TV is a widescreen model, dialogue and vocals seem to be coming from below the people who are talking or singing. To prevent this problem, the YSP-5600 has a Dialogue Lift function (adjustable in three steps) that causes the reflecting beams from its array speakers to raise the apparent height of the dialogue to appropriate levels on the screen. You enjoy sounds and images that are perfectly aligned, just as in a movie theatre
  • Compatible with the New Formats Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
    The YSP-5600 supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the latest surround sound formats that have attracted a lot of attention in the movie industry. Dolby Atmos is supported by the unit when shipped, while DTS:X is planned to be supported with a firmware update
  • Supports Yamaha's Own CINEMA DSP 3D Mode
    Yamaha's original CINEMA DSP 3D Mode adds an expansive height direction to the sound field, creating a rich surround space. The YSP-5600 supports this feature by using special array speakers to create vertical beams. You can enjoy the feeling of a live performance with standard sound formats, and combine this effect with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X to enjoy a more natural expansion of the 3D surround sound
  • Choose One of Four Listening Modes to Match Your Scenario
    The YSP-5600 is equipped with four listening modes: 3D Surround, which commands five horizontal beams and two vertical beams to recreate the equivalent of up to a 7.1.2-channel three-dimensional sound field; Surround, which uses five horizontal beams to perform normal 5.1-channel surround playback; Stereo, which uses a special vertical beam speaker as a tweeter to produce high sound quality 2-channel stereo from audio sources; and Target, which aims monaural speech clearly to a precise location in the room. In 3D Surround mode you can optionally select CINEMA DSP 3D Mode, while in Surround mode you can optionally select CINEMA DSP, providing a wider variety of sound field programmes
  • Intellibeam Automates the Height Channel Settings
    The YSP-5600 employs beam optimisation and sound optimisation features with the aid of the supplied IntelliBeam microphone, allowing you to avoid troublesome listening-based setup and achieve highly accurate sound adjustments that best match your listening environment. Together, these two features are called IntelliBeam. The positions of the sound beams directed at the ceiling can also be automatically set. The YSP-5600 can thus reproduce the live music ambience of a variety of rooms
  • Two Interrelated Apps Let You Easily Control the YSP-5600 and Connected Equipment
    With the Home Theater Controller (WLAN) app you can use a smartphone or tablet to control the basic functions or beam adjustments of the YSP unit, while with the MusicCast Controller app you can control audio streaming to devices connected via MusicCast. These two apps are interconnected, making it simple to operate the YSP-5600 and connected devices. You can download these apps for free from the App Store or Google Play
  • MusicCast

In addition, a Bluetooth standby mode provides the convenience of having the YSP-5600 turn on and off automatically
  • Eco Design
    All MusicCast-compatible models feature Standby power mode that achieves low power consumption of under 3W . And taking the Eco design concept a step further, the YSP-5600 has even lower power consumption of less than 1.6W in Standby power mode. In addition, the Auto power Standby function automatically turns the power off after a set period of time with no signal elapses. This eco-design makes MusicCast thoroughly friendly to the environment
  • Simple Exterior Design Doesn't Interfere with Your Viewing
    The front panel and the indicator section are covered by a mesh grille, achieving a simple, elegant look. The mesh on each end curves around to the upper panel, subtly asserting surround support. The indicator section lights only when needed, to avoid interfering with viewing. Even with its special vertical beam speakers the unit is only 1100mm, 100mm smaller than the previous YSP-5100 model, and the depth is only 93mm (without stand), making it an extremely slim presence in your room

Phenomenal Sound!

Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Bar:

This sound bar is worth every penny. I paired it with a Yamaha YST-FSW050 sub-woofer. The setup with the IntelliBeam microphone was quick and easy and generated a very natural sound field. There is not enough that can be said about the sound quality. I'm very excited to have one piece of equipment that takes the place of a receiver and seven speakers and fills the room with immersive, natural sound.

I have the sound bar connected to a 65" Sony Bravia TV, Apple TV and Verizon FIOS STB in addition to the sub-woofer.

A few nuisances that I expect to work through given more time:

Communication between the TV and sound bar is very fussy. I should really just give up on pushing audio from the TV to the sound bar given that the Apple TV does everything that the TV's apps do. There is a very specific sequence of operations that has to be followed when switching from TV content back to any of the HDMI sources plugged directly into the sound bar.

I've also experienced spotty communication between the TV and sound bar. On one occasion the sound bar didn't turn on when the TV was powered on. On another occasion, the TV volume control didn't adjust the sound bar audio. HDMI control is configured on both ends.

I so far haven't been able to get the Yamaha sub-woofer to turn on and off with the sound bar via the "System Connect" cable.

The remote control is well designed and very elegant. But it has no ability to control my other devices. My low/mid price point Onkyo receiver in my Family Room came with a remote that with minimal programming allows me to control my Verizon STB and Apple TV.

And the lack of a printed manual is pretty annoying. I ended up downloading the manual from the website and putting in on my ipad.

More and less than I expected


from Florida

Comments about Yamaha Black Digital Sound Bar:

As noted by reviewers elsewhere, from the factory the treble is set a bit high. This is adjustable, but you have to go online to get the procedure. I had to give up my Klipsch floor-standing Choruses and other Klipsch speakers to satisfy my wife's demand to reduce clutter and open up the living room. As good as it is, the Yamaha YSP 5600 cannot fill the room and surround you with the presence of sound as well as large speakers can.
On the other hand, it does have the ability to make listening to TV better. A dialogue lift button right on the remote gives you three levels of dialogue enhancement. This is great for us older folk who often have difficulty making out words over background music and sound effects.
Using a headset returns some of the pleasure of listening to music, since how the sound is bounced around the room doesn't matter.
Setting up for your space is easy. A wired microphone is included and following the display instructions will give you adequate sound immediately. Having a separate subwoofer is more effective than the built-in bass. Remember to set the SW controls before you start the auto set up. The sub should be at 50 percent volume and lowest crossover.
Once you are listening, you have a button for controlling the subwoofer effect on the remote. Marvelous.
Although there is a digital audio RCA input, it does not interpret AC-3 Dolby Digital from old Laser Disks. Bummer, I had some great soundtracks in that format. If there is a solution to this, I'd love to hear it.
The unit is very tall. A TV should be set with some clearance between the bottom of the TV and the top of the Yamaha. I've found that a little isolation from vibration can be accomplished by putting self-adhesive felt pads on the bottom of the unit. Unless you are a real music buff, this is an ideal speaker for getting the best out of the newer TVs. I'm getting used to it and may find ways to adjust it to even more.
