Details

Yamaha are still considered one of the best, if not THE best, producer of quality soundbars in the world. With their standard 2 channel range and their hugely popular (and innovative) surround sound range, they have dominated the market for several years.

The YSP-5600 joins the ranks of surround sound soundbars, but ups the game even further with the addition of the still new Dolby Atmos system. The Dolby Atmos system is designed to give height to your movies and TV shows by adding upward firing speakers into a surround set up. This soundbar does just that through a series of 6 height channel speakers - on top of all the other speakers in this soundbar that's a total of 46 speakers hidden in this soundbar (!).

So what do all those speakers do? Well, they emulate the sound you'd expect from a 7 channel sound system with 2 Dolby Atmos speakers, but all from within a single soundbar. You can also add an external subwoofer too to create a 7.1.2 system. The external subwoofer can either be the one that Yamaha recommends (provided as part of the YSP-5600SW pack) or you can provide your own subwoofer and connect via the subwoofer pre out on this soundbar.

Use the included microphone to set your soundbar up and it will work with your room to create a rather splendid soundstage, capable of blowing away most traditional surround systems.

Yamaha's own bespoke sound processing also give you some excellent features such as Dialogue Lift - a simple method of enhacing voices to help you hear dialog more clearly. There's also ten different sound processing programmes that you can play with to find the perfect sound for your movie experience.

On top of this you'll have access to the MusicCast system, Yamaha's own music streaming service. This will allow you to listen to music from around your home (including Apple via AirPlay) and can be controlled by an app easily downloaded onto your Apple or android phone.

There's also full support for HDMI, plus plently of other connections available for pretty much anything you can think of. Phew!

As always we think this upper end soundbar will sell well and will dominate the market - for a one box solution it's hard to fault it.
