About Yamaha YSP-3300

The Yamaha YSP-3300 Digital Sound Projector & Wireless Active Subwoofer features a brushed-metal finish with mirrored sides that are designed to match most HDTVs. The system features a wireless active subwoofer with Advanced YST technology, which reproduces rich and powerful bass. The system also features a sound bar with 16 array speakers and two woofers. It can either be mounted on a wall or it can rest right in front of your flat-screen TV. The wireless subwoofer also allows for flexible placement, since it doesn't need to be right next to the sound bar. The YSP-3300 uses Digital Sound Projector Technology to reproduce true 7.1-channel surround sound.

With 7.1-channel surround, the YSP-3300 is compatible with both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound. The system achieves true surround sound by directing beams of various walls at various angles. And, you can choose from a variety of different listening modes. The YSP-3300 also includes a microphone that you can use with the IntelliBeam function to automatically set the optimum sound field. It features a compressed music enhancer as well, which restores what your music loses during compression. The YSP-3300 also features four HDMI inputs and an HDMI output that support 4K pass-through, 3D pass-through and CEC functionality.

The YSP-3300 supports UniVolume and Clear Voice technology as well. UniVolume keeps all programs and commercials at the same volume level, while Clear Voice enhances the clarity and volume of dialogue and narrations. You can also enjoy wireless streaming of audio from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or computer with the optional YIT-W12 Wireless Transmitter (sold separately). The YSP-3300 can store up to three of your favorite settings for playback mode, CINEMA DSP mode and IntelliBeam measurement results. It even features an ECO Mode for energy conservation.

Great add to the home entertainment sys


from Waltham, MA  -  Practical

Never thought buying the YSP would bring me closer to the neighbors. My neighbors stopped by last night. It seems my "Lord of the Rings" movie night disturbed their dinner. I did set up the YSP on auto calibrate for surround effect, but since my room is rectangular in shape with the TV/YSP in one corner. The auto calibrate results weren't all that great. The soundbar does sound fantastic, you get a feeling of depth to the sound. I've tried some 3D surround sound demos from youtube, once with TV speakers and then again with the YSP. The YSP sounds phenomenal. The TV speakers just give you a feeling of left/right channels and then the volume of the channels overall. There's no depth to the sound, the YSP on the other hand gives you a feeling of immersive depth to the sound. You can clearly make out that the sound is coming from different places in a room (in a movie) when a movie is being played. I tried playing Pandora on my TV from the smart hub but in stereo mode I didn't see much of a difference between the YSP and the TV speakers. It did sound good and the sub woofer gives it an extra kick. Yesterday afternoon I did manually calibrate the different channels for the YSP and got all but one of the 5.1 channels setup. I cannot get the surround right channel right, maybe because its because of the shape of my room and where the couch is placed relative to the wall. I have a corner setup for my living room which is attached to a dining area. The couch is in front of the TV (10 feet away) with a 45 degree angle to the adjacent wall. It doesn't leave much room behind me to reflect sound off. I do have the FR, FL, C, SL channels manually calibrated with the appropriate 'beam angles'. I just used my own ears to figure if I liked what I was hearing. I don't have any definitive way to say if it's the right thing to do. All I did was keep adjusting the beam angles until I could hear the sound coming from the right place. I don't know how to adjust the 'beam distance' and 'focal length' parameters because I would need to draw out the layout of the room and use geometry to see exactly what it is I'm doing. I'm just too lazy to do that right now. I may do it sometime later in the week when I'm bored and have nothing better to do. Last night I was playing "LOTR" and maybe a tad bit too loud (as I was reminded by my neighbors ;)), there was a scene where the nazgul flies around Minas Tarith and you could hear the sound originate from the LF speakers and go all the way to the SL speakers. I could have sworn that it felt like the nazgul flew out of my TV and flew behind me on my left side. It was really cool to have that feeling. I'm going to tinker some more to get some effect for the right surround. I need to still figure out haw to use the 'beam distance' and 'focal length' settings. I may have to use measuring tape and the room layout diagram to know what I'm doing. For those who have the YSP, congratulations and I hope we enjoy the home theater experience it brings. And for those on the fence, who need a little more convincing, I'd say give this a try. While I cannot say that this is worth $1.5k or $1.8k but for me it was a decision of aesthetics without having to deal with a room littered with speakers. I'll build my dedicated speaker based home theater when I move to my own place, not while I'm renting.

Would purchase again!!!


from Orchard Park, NY  -  Tech Savvy

Installed my YSP-3300 to replace a pair of Phase Tech speakers. While not as robust as a surround system, this sound projector blows away my previous AVR/speaker combo. Excellent, accurate sound. Easy to install. MANY inputs allows elimination of AVR. Power is good, not great, but fine for my open 20' x 20' family room. I've been using stereo mode, not surround, due to open rooms, but sound is still excellent.
