Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Physical size
Bad points:
I accept I am very probably missing something here ( the reviews by the HiFi mags seem to rave about this kit, which is why I bought it), but considering how expensive this unit is compared with the competition, I was expecting better. There is no printed manual and frankly I don't think a CD with a PDF version is adequate. It is not particularly easy to set up and we found the sound to be OK but no more than that. We certainly did not think the surround sound effect was good enough to justify the price. You can get a proper surround system for far less money and if I had the chance again, I'd def go for that.

Manufacturer's Description

This extremely convenient Digital Sound Projector™ is low profile enough to fit neatly in front of a TV and is 3D compatible (HDMI V.1.4a).

The YSP-2200 is only 79mm high, so you can place it in front of most flat screen TVs without blocking the picture. The height-adjustable feet let you achieve optimum positioning. The feet can also be removed.

The powerful yet slim subwoofer can be used vertically or horizontally, so you can place it inside or outside a rack. The sound has been tuned to perfectly match the YSP-2200.

The YSP-2200 applies this sophisticated technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by focusing it through multiple beams. The centre channel sound is heard directly, while sounds from other channels are heard after reflecting off walls. The result is true multi-channel surround sound that sounds just like a multi-speaker system – but without the need for extra speakers!

With a built-in 132W digital amplifier that efficiently drives all channels, an aluminium body that damps vibrations, precision sound tuning and optimum subwoofer matching, the YSP-2200 delivers 7.1-channel surround sound with outstanding clarity and linearity. The design is more elegant and less obtrusive than multiple speaker boxes.

The YSP-2200 achieves true surround sound by directing sound beams off the walls to reach the listener from various angles. The main mode is 5 BeamPlus2 for 7-channel sources. In addition, there is a wide variety of other listening modes. You can select 3 BeamPlus2 + Stereo, 5 Beam, Stereo + 3 Beam, 3 Beam, Stereo and My Surround.
