The Yamaha YHT1840 provides ideally matched speakers and an AV receiver for a fantastic introduction to home cinema.

Home cinema sound made easy

Connect your TV, Blu-ray/DVD player and games console to the Yamaha YHT1840 and you're ready for the full cinema experience. With built-in Dolby and DTS digital processors, the YHT1810 fires out sound effects around the room for a real sense of 'being there'. Sound is processed by192/24-bit Burr Brown DACs on each channel for powerful dynamics that'll keep you on the edge of your seat! Music is equally well looked after as the amp quality components for a more detailed and natural sound.

Fully immersive sound
Soundbars are great but there's nothing that can beat the sound of a separates AV system. With five channels of sound from a discrete amplifier, the YHT1840 surrounds you in rich, low distortion sound – just like at the cinema. The amplifier also delivers a handy 70 watts per channel, meaning it can cope with even the punchiest-sounding blockbusters. There’s also an 'Extra Bass' function. This gives a deeper, richer bass response and works really well with small speakers and at lower volume levels.

Ready for the latest UHD sources
For full compatibility with the exciting new UHD Blu-ray format, all the HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR Video including Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020. Four inputs let you connect up a Blu-ray, games console, set-top box and PC – enough for an entire home cinema system.

Flexible processing
Another advantage of going for AV separates is the inclusion of powerful surround sound processing. As well as full HD audio decoding of both Dolby and DTS formats, the YHT1840 features Yamaha's famous DSP Surround programs. With 17 modes from The Roxy Theatre to a concert Hall in Munich, the Yamaha system gives a variety of acoustic settings for a unique sound. Added to this, four SCENE selections ensure that you always have the best setting when watching films or listening to music.

Sleek curved speakers
With an eye to enhancing the coolest of interiors, the satellite speakers have been designed to be unobtrusive. Slim enough to be wall mounted via their keyhole openings, they also benefit from a tapering rear panel and smooth edges. The centre speaker is a dedicated design with improved sensitivity and crisp dialogue and is also easily wall mounted. The subwoofer gives the bass a natural, powerful sound that avoids bass 'boom'.

For a quality home cinema system that doesn't sacrifice sound for good looks, the Yamaha YHT1840 brings it together with style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, slightly quirky connections. Very pleased with the sound quality and options, though the interface is a little frustrating. Having Sky, TV and Blu-Ray connected seems to confuse the machine sometimes and occasionally I have to turn it on and off to reset it. Good overall product though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound system I bought this after trying to decide whether or not a soundbar would be good enough for my needs. I just couldn't bring myself to buy a soundbar as I knew the sound quality and spacial effects of a true 5.1 system couldn't be beaten. This system packs a real punch! Overall quality of the system is fantastic, I certain adore having the additional amplifier (as apposed to soundbar built-in amps) which has a tonne of features to play with and also having the 4 HDMI sockets on the back which supports full 4K is a real bonus! Running this through HDMI ARC into the back of my brand new 4KTV is just fantastic, amp switches on and off with my TV and volume can be controlled from the single TV remote which is great. Sound quality is superb, I've only tested it on a couple of films and some games, but it is incredibly loud (loud enough for a small/medium sized lounge). 5.1 works perfect, with clear vocals coming through the centre speaker, whilst all other action is bouncing off all the other speakers. Anyone looking for a mid-ranged full 5.1 system, with full 4K capability this is the one for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than being at the Cinema We bought this a couple of weeks ago after being advised to go to Richer Sounds by a friend who is a sound engineer by profession. He spared us a few minutes from covering Premier League and Golf, and Olympics. Our old surround sound system had given up and we wanted some proper advice, which we got at York -Richer Sounds. The system is great ,we can determine all the range of sound and it makes some older dvd's worth watching as they are like a 'new film' now because of the sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb value,decent bass and surround sound Far better than the cheaper systems I tried from 2 other High St stores.Easy to set up.I have my Ps4,Xbox,laptop and Tivo plugged into this and have no loss of picture or sound quality.I would recommend HDMI over optical.I get great 5.1 sound even while watching normal non 4k SD T.V.My budget was originally £200 but this was definitely worth the extra £100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding sound quality! We had a soundbar for some years and although it was good it wasn't great. This Yamaha surround sound system is terrific! There are multiple ways to connect TV, Blu-ray, CD / Record players. As well as an optical connection and a USB and RCA Audio / Video inputs. There are 4 HDMI inputs and one HDMI output to your TV. We did have compatibility problem only with Virgin TiVo. However, although we bought a HDMI 1 input 2 output tsplitter (NOT A SWITCH) we discovered that going via this splitter resolved the incompatibility error message and still only needed one HDMI output cable from the Yamaha to the TV. We did NOT need the second HDMI cable from the splitter to the TV. The sound is incredible where 5:1 sound is broadcast. Such as gunfire, explosions or breaking glass that happens "behind the camera". We love it! If you wanted extra security to go with your timed Fake TV, this system via the same timed socket would add actual TV sound (not available on modern TVs) thus adding realism to "someone at home" whilst you're away. Richer Sounds are an easy and excellent company to deal with, so a big THANK YOU to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Did originally want a sound bar but after hearing about this and for the price it was a no brainer. Hasn't disappointed. Amazing sound. Films are incredible to watch now with this. Easy to set up. Love it. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great connections, easy setup I was missing 5.1 surround after having a sound bar for a while, saw this advertised, so glad I purchased it - sound is awesome in the lounge , just what I was missing. Very easy set up and display changes automatically to show what connection is playing, the sound from small speakers is immense, highly recommended
