Yamaha NS-555 Features

  • Three-Way/Four-Driver Bass Reflex Speaker System: The floor standing speaker is a bass-reflex design that can be used for main channels and incorporates a pair of 6 1/4" (PMD) cone woofers, a 5" midrange cone driver and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter.
  • Waveguide Horn: Unlike most homes, movie theaters use sound absorbing materials on walls and ceilings. The result is that the sound reaching your ears is the sound wave produced by the speakers rather than reflected off the walls.
  • Internally Wired with Monster Cable: Yamaha has chosen to ensure optimum sound quality by internally wiring some of the components with Monster Cable. This ensures a clean, clear signal from the crossover network to the speaker driver.
  • Speaker Stands Included: Yamaha's matching speaker stands provides the solid footing necessary for full floor contact, enhanced stability, and minimal vibration resonance. The stands also provide an attractive counterpoint to the cabinet.
  • Magnetic Shielding: The speaker is magnetically shielded, so it can be placed on a TV or video monitor without degrading the picture via stray magnetic fields.
  • Bi-Wiring Capability: To further maintain signal purity, Yamaha provides bi-wiring capability for the NS-555 speakers. There are separate +/- terminals for the woofer(s) and other driver(s). The separation reduces modulation distortion and better sound quality.
  • Performance Enhanced by a Handsome Cabinet: The EF series speakers are enclosed in an Elliptical Form cabinet with a high gloss black piano finish, which provides solid construction with minimal sound diffraction.
  • New Grill Design: New grill design and grill cloth provide an attractive and acoustically transparent protective cover for the drivers.

Great performing front channel speakers

By

from Orlando  -  Tech Savvy

I replaced some older Bose 301 I was using as my front left and right and, wow. These speakers completed my home theater system and made such a difference. I was not a big fan of the feet so I did not use them and put the speaker directly on the tile floor next to the home theater cabinet. Looks better this way in my opinion. In terms of sound I have nothing bad to say but to capture that deep base you will need a seperate powered sub but that is expected with these slim towers.

Decent Home Theater and Audio Speaker

By

from Chicago, IL

Being just a bit smaller than the NS-777 they hold their own in both Home Theater Audio and 2 Channel Analog audio. Match them up with the NS-C444 center channel along with the NS-333 Rear speakers and you have a very decent 5.1 Home Theater system. With the Black Lacquer finish they also look good and more spouse friendly. Match the speakers up with a good 75+ watt receiver and you will not be disappointed with the sound output. For the price it is hard to beat the audio sound produce by Yamaha.

Fantastic Speakers!

By

from Kalamazoo, MI  -  Audiophile

Prior to purchasing the NS-555 speakers I had owned a pair of Dynaudio Contour 1.3 SE monitors, which sold for much more. I sold off most of my high-end in order to attend graduate school. I use the NS-555s in a two channel system with a Yamaha AX-592 integrated amplifier and a Yamaha DVD-S2700 DVD/SACD player. In a word this system is "phenomenal"! The NS-555s are not as good as the Dynaudios but they are probably 80%+ at 1/5th the price. They do so much so well that I am astonished at how reasonably they sell for. The fir and finish is very good, they are very well made! The NS-555s reproduce sound very accurately with very little boxy coloration. The treble and mids are very clean and clear, as well, the bass is taut, deep and clean with none of the excess boom found in "cheap" speakers. The Yamaha NS-555 speakers are the real deal! They can comfortably compete with designs at over twice their retail price. The only caveat that I will mention is that they have a moderately low sensitivity of 88dB 1W/m, this means that they like a fairly powerful amplifier. I would recommend a true 75-100 wpc to get the most out of these fine speakers. If you are considering these speakers I give them my very highest recommendation, they are worth every penny. They look expensive, but better yet, they sound expensive, smooth, suave and refined, amazing!
