The essential surround sound experience! A single-speaker virtual surround system that uses 40 1.5-inch drivers to bounce sound off walls and create enveloping surround effects while a pair of 4.25-inch woofers produce the bass. Built-in digital amplifiers, Dolby/DTS and proprietary sound processing, and video switching features remove the need for an AV receiver.
It sits remarkably snug under your television, with all 42 speakers set at slight angles - It bounces the sound around the room, gun fire from the front, a speeding car from the left or an explosion from behind - all achieved without the fuss of hiding mass amounts of cables and looking for another coffee table to sit yet another tiny gutless speaker on!
No shadow of a doubt if you want clarity, warmth and a true cinematic experience from your own living room - you need to add this magic little number to you set up!
As amazing as it seems, the YSP-1100 can actually deliver multi-channel sound that surrounds listeners the same way that sound from front, center and rear speakers does. DVD movies and other digital sources sound just the way they are supposed to. Dolby Pro Logic II is included, so even 2-channel TV sound can be heard in glorious multi-channel surround. Remember, this is true surround sound, not virtual surround, which can cause listening fatigue. The YSP-1100 contains 42 digital amplifiers to power 42 sound drivers, delivering remarkable multi-channel enjoyment from a single, elegant component.
Setting up the Yamaha Digital Sound Projector is much easier than a conventional home theater system because multiple speakers and extra wiring are eliminated. Installation of this system is so versatile that you can place it next to, or on top of, your video display... or if you have a wall mounted flat panel video display you can use the optional wall-mount bracket to place it securely on the wall. No matter if your room is square or rectangular, or if you have to place your Digital Sound Projector in a corner or another part of the room, the system is flexible enough for virtually any room configuration.
It's not just about how it sounds... it's also about style, and how well it complements a wall or stand-mounted plasma, LCD or rear-projection video display. With slim, contemporary design, it becomes an elegant statement of the latest in home theater technology. And, since it can be used as an on-wall system, you can take the Digital Sound Projector with you if you move!
The YSP-1100 supports IR signal transmission for the convenient operation of other components. The YSP-1100 can be controlled by an IR signal sent through the Remote In terminal. The IR signal received by the Remote Control Sensor on the front panel is directly output through the IR OUT terminal. It is also provided with an RS-232C interface for a touch-panel controller.
