Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The Yamaha YHT294 provides an immense sound, when playing high def audio you get complete immersion and the bass is terrific. There is plenty of cable to allow you to position the speakers wherever you want although clipping the ends of the cable into the amp can be tricky when setting up. You can rename all of the 4 HDMI inputs which allows you to identify the source easily.
Bad points:
The only snag I have not overcome so far is programming my sky+ remote to control the volume. Other than this I am extremely happy with the Yamaha YHT294 after a month of owning it.

Daniel, Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
included mic makes it very easy to set up and adjust to the acoustics of your room.
plenty of power, i've only got to about 2/3rds of the maximum power output before i had to turn it down.
easily supports the 5.1 audio from ps3 games / dvds / blurays.
Bad points:
the sub requires a separate power source, and does not go into standby with the rest of the system (you have to turn it off at the back of the sub) - small point but annoying all the same

brian, durham Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
All the kit is there including cables although this is only cheap bell wire. I went to maplin and bought some 42/0.2. Ease of use in using right out of the box but a proper set up needed courtesy of mic that looks at the ambience of the room. This was bought for the master bedroom so speaker positions were limited but having listened to my first movie sounds good enough.
Bad points:
Need to print off the manual from the included cd. That's progress. Actually found more features in it. Sound wise you get what you pay for. Not the best but still has umph in the bass and I mounted my sub on the wall

Manufacturer's Description

The Yamaha YHT-294 packages up a range of classic Yamaha components to create an excellent all-in-one home cinema experience.
At the core of the Yamaha YHT-294 package, a powerful Yamaha RXV367 AV receiver offers a massive 600 watts of power and HDMI 1.4, making it compatible with the latest generation of 3D television sets.
The RXV367 AV receiver offers a range of useful features, including lip sync to ensure that dialogue matches perfectly with the lip movements of actors onscreen, while compressed music enhancer improves sound from highly compressed digital files, to offer a much more satisfying sound.
Meanwhile, Scene function selects exactly the right Digital Signal Processor (DSP) setting for whatever you’re watching, whether that be a classical concert or a war film, and the Yamaha will also set the system up to suit your room’s acoustics.
To complete the Yamaha YHT-294 package, a set of Yamaha speakers offer the perfect counterpoint to the receiver. Five discreet compact satellite speakers offer realistic and subtle sound, while an active subwoofer uses Yamaha’s own YST technology to create powerful and satisfying bass frequencies. The compact subwoofer manages to achieve the performance of a much bigger unit by using Active Servo Technology to push more air through the bass port.
