Dolby Atmos/DTS:X Soundbar

Yamaha have now officially release the worlds first Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundbar (the later coming as a firmware update later in the year.) The unit uses a total of 46 drivers to bounce sound around the room to create a surround sound experience rivaled by no other soundbar manufacturers. Also packing Yamaha’s new MusicCast functionality for wireless app control and audio streaming functionality as well as multi-room integration make this a very difficult unit to beat for the money. Pop in store for a demonstration today.

Why is setup so critical?

Sometimes bad deeds by others can be beneficial to good guys (like me). In our Holiday House I decided to replace my bulky 3.1 system (I have no room or wiring opportunities for surrounds) with a Soundbar. The logical choice was the Yamaha YSP-4100 as it’s one of the few Soundbars that offers actual surround sound from a single bar. So, I took one up there, used the set up microphone and used it for movies and music. The bloody thing sounded crap. I thought that was just the way Soundbars were and kept using it. Nasty robbers then broke in and stole it (good luck flogging it down the pub without the remote or microphone) so last weekend I took another YSP-4100 to the house and set it up. It still sounded crap so I thought I’d delve a little deeper into the various menu’s, sub-menu’s and tweaks. Well, bugger me if, after 30 minutes of playing around, the whole kit sounded amazing. I changed the positioning of the subwoofer, adjusted the treble level down (I have tiled floors and the original sound was too “live”), increased the subwoofer level and played around with the beam volume. Even the Missus said how much better it sounded both for music and movies with the virtual surround function making me turn my head continually looking for rear speakers. So, I now have a neat compact system with surround sound that sound near as dammit to my original 3.1 system (but with the advantage of surround sound) that I’m extremely happy with. There’s a moral to that story - I’m just not sure what it is!
