The supplied mic and auto-calibration system quickly tailor the sound to your room – and the looks help it match your flatscreen TV. You’ll have to supply your own amplification and DVD player, though.</p> <p>The auto set-up system is quick and painless, so you can get a decent sound in next to no time. The Yamaha uses rear and side walls to create convincing ambience from the 23 drivers in the box, and it works astonishingly well considering it’s such an unpromising premise.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £600.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Have to supply your own amplification and DVD player.

The YSP-800 still offers 5.1-channel surround from one box, but now with automatic microphone setup, and all for just £600. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="356" height="236" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/2056004d1mn.jpg?1364475889" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Space-age surround sound just got cheaper and, for that matter, smaller. Yamaha's new YSP-800 is the new little brother of the original YSP-1 digital sound projector. The new unit uses 22 tiny speaker drivers (as opposed to the larger YSP-1's 40) to throw 'beams' of sound at different parts of the room to create a surround effect. No speakers cluttering up the room, and no wires for the dog to chew.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/tv-and-hi-fi/stuff/yamaha-one-box-surround-gets-cheaper </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/yamaha/yamaha-one-box-surround-gets-cheaper/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/yamaha/yamaha-one-box-surround-gets-cheaper/news#comments Yamaha YSP-800 Tue, 30 Aug 2005 05:00:00 +0000 admin 510 at http://www.stuff.tv
