Being a movie or music enthusiast can get a bit tough at times, especially when it comes to looking for that perfect speaker. Being a movie or music enthusiast with almost no money to spare can make searching for that audio system you want a bit harder. Most of the time, it is those expensive systems that actually get the job done in terms of style and sound delivery. So, if you’re one of those lucky audiophiles with no objections in spending substantial amounts of money, then you’re in for a real treat. Buy yours Yamaha YSP-2500 Soundbar.
The system consists of a sound bar and a wireless subwoofer that are both incredibly slim and compact. They also both come in a luxurious, black finish that gives your room a sophisticated, modern look. The sound bar measures approximately 37 1/8” in length, 2” in height and 5 5/8” in depth. Due to its measurements, it can easily be placed flat on a table top, and it can also be mounted on the wall using a wall bracket. It is also ideal for televisions measuring 40” or more. The equally compact wireless subwoofer measures 17.5” in height, 5.75” in width and 13 7/8” in depth. Its slim figure allows it to almost disappear entirely from the background without compromising the richness of the sounds it delivers. It can also be placed either vertically or horizontally.
Being a company dedicated to the manufacture of musical instruments and other devices related to sound, Yamaha packed high-quality specifications within the slim frame of this beauty. This audio system is equipped with the exclusive Yamaha IntelliBeam auto calibration system that helps you in the set up of your sound bar by setting the best sound beam angles for your room, allowing it to deliver the best surround-sound suitable for the entertainment area. It also allows for wireless music streaming from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth connectivity. Wired connectivity is also supported with several HDMI ports, 2 optical inputs, 1 coaxial input, and 1 analog input, thus allowing you to connect and control several portable media devices at the same time. Speaking of smartphones, you can also download the free Home Theater Controller app to further adjust certain settings on the system, such as shifting from a variety of listening modes.
Boasting of a 162-watt total power, this gem is also fitted with 16 1 1/8” beam drivers that have been systematically calculated and arranged for a more precise sound dispersion. Combine that with the wireless subwoofer with dual 4” drivers and you’d get a powerful sound system capable of producing a full-range of sounds with unbelievable clarity and precision. There are also several listening modes you can choose from, all thanks to the CINEMA DSP Digital technology. You can also connect your headset to the front panel headphone jack for a more immersive experience.
In summary, there are features and specifications aplenty for this gem. If you can reach the somewhat steep price range, you won’t be disappointed.
