The Yamaha YSP-1100 is a great looking system that features 40 individually-amped 1-inch drivers that simulate a surround sound experience. The unit supports Dolby and DTS formats for maximum versatility. It seems to offer all the goods without the the trouble of cables, speaker mounting or clutter in our living room.
Another great feature of the Yamaha YSP-1100 is its Night Listening Enhancer mode, which allows quiet sounds (especially dialogue) to be heard crystal clear without the volume. And just in case you were wondering if this thing can project surround sound anywhere int the room, check this out:
There are five selectable sound settings that allow users to choose between 5-Beam Mode, Stereo Mode, 3-Beam Mode, Stereo+3-Beam Mode and My Beam Mode. The YSP-1100 has a wider soundstage than its predecessors, affording more optimum listening positions within a room. My Beam mode allows users to focus sound to a specific position in their room at the touch of a button to avoid disturbing others.
The Yamaha YSP-1100 is a sexy and load, but kinda pricey–she’ll be on the shelves for $1700. I guess it’s not too bad if you think of what the product features.
