Details

The Yamaha SRT-1000 soundbase is new from October 2014 and takes the entire soundbase concept hugely forward by adding Yamaha's unique Digital Sound Projector technology.

Whereas normally a soundbase will give you 2.0 or perhaps 2.1 sound, this soundbase produces a genuine 5.1 sound by firing beams around your room. These beams reflect from surfaces to create the impression that there's an actual speaker behind you, giving you a true cinema experience.

Of course this means that this soundbase's performance will vary on both your room and where you put it, but even in awkward shaped rooms with lots of clutter it's still pretty effective. Sure, there may be true 5.1 systems that do better, but not in such a small and compact way.

In essence we think this soundbase is ideal for those seeking a 5.1 sound but without the hassle of cables everywhere - one box, under the TV and that's it - rather impressive! It even comes with an optical cable to get you set up quickly so there's not much more you'll need.

Connection is nice and straightforward - there's no HDMI here but just run an optical out from your TV and you should have all the sound you need. There's additional inputs for both analogue and other optical devices so you can use a CD player or even a Blu-ray player as an audio playback device for CD's. Bluetooth is included too, which not only lets you play music from your phone but will also allow you to download and use the Yamaha Home Theatre Controller. This app lets you get everything set up perfectly and will enable you to get the most out of your soundbase.

We'd recommend this unit with TV's from 40 inches up to 55" - there's a maximum weight load of 40kg on this unit so if you do go bigger please ensure the TV is not too heavy for the soundbase!

Home cinema Choice reviewed this soundbase in their February 2015 issue and gave it their 'Best Buy' award.

"Yamaha has lifted some of the tech that makes its YSP models so effective and put it to good use here, in a nicely-styled enclosure with excellent app-control. Performance is very accomplished."
