Richer Sounds exclusive model.

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, 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 5 out of 5 by from This has to be heard to be believed. Excellent service from RS as usual.Delivered early,(DPD must be the best service out there),well packed.To get the most from this system you MUST follow all the set up steps,i.e, distance,test tones etc.Coming from a top of the range soundbar with rear speakers,the channel separation on this is like night and day,ok I've lost Atmos and it took a while to set up but the sound for what I want is unbelievable,even my wife commented on the sound improvement.Wether I'll eventually miss the convenience of wi-fi and Bluetooth only time will tell but at the moment I can't believe the time and money I've wasted on the convenience of soundbars.Take the plunge,you won't be disappointed.Note to Yamaha,most rooms are significantly bigger than the measly amount of speaker wire that's included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound When I purchased this it was to replace my old home cinema system that I actually bought from Richer Sounds Glasgow many years ago. It was easy to set up, I have been around this kind of stuff for years, I was even teaching my kids the setup as I went. Once all wires etc where connected, I switched it on and switched on the PS4 and I still had "Black Widow" inserted. The opening marvel song on the dvd sounded amazing making the kids go "Wow". It's been the first night and I have been playing about with it and it sounds fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small unobtrusive speakers with good sound We have only just purchased this unit, however I am really pleased with the sound quality and look of it. The front and surround speakers are mounted on the wall in each corner of the room, this has enhance our viewing pleasure immensely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Felix is a cool dude When I called richer sounds I had little idea of what to buy, spoke to a chap called Felix. He advised me not offering the most expensive item but one that fitted my needs. As for the 5.1 thingy it's great. Set up was trail n error but fun sorting levels and connection. As for the over all sound it's pretty awesome, if it also made me coffee n toast while watching movies it would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent advice and service. Needed a replacement sound system for home cinema that wouldn't break the bank. Superb quality and surround sound experience at an excellent price and great guidance from the team at the Chelsea store. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Amp and Speakers I bought this setup a few weeks ago now and wow what a revelation. Easy to setup, requires just stripping the speaker cable ends but it’s easy enough to do once you get into the swing of it. It’s worth every second. All speakers sound and so does the subwoofer. Still haven’t gone through all the setups but it works and sounds great. Anyone unsure whether to buy this should really consider it, it’s brilliant, highly recommend. Also a shoutout to RicherSounds who explained some questions I had about the system. I got next day delivery and also a discount as I ordered a 4K/Blu-ray player plus two sets of speaker sounds, and I recommend the 6 year guarantee, very worth while. Thankyou Yamaha and RicherSounds for making home cinema experience even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than a soundbar! During lockdown, like many people the thought of the cinema was not very appealing so we decided to convert the log cabin at the bottom of the garden. A 1080p projector and using a blackout blind as a screen we were away! Initially I blue toothed the sound to an Orbitsound bar but my wife treated me to the Yamaha YHT1840 as a birthday present and what a difference it has made! Just watched a remastered blu-ray of The Phantom Menace and the pod race scene is awesome! You need to read the full instructions on the supplied CD-ROM or download online as they are much more detailed than the printed ones. I have a blu ray player and fire stick connected and there are still two more hdmi ports available. A lack of Bluetooth is not an issue for my purposes. I bought over the phone and a very helpful salesperson explained how I should connect it all together. Do take the time to set it up properly and balance out the sound from each speaker. There is the facility to set up a graphic equaliser on each of the five main speakers so really worth exploring it properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the money Recently having had virgin media installed my Sony Bravia tv and sony sound surround system had a Lyp Sync problem we could not cure, I spoke to Richer sounds and they explained in detail what the problem was, I chose the YHT1840 surround sound system which took me around an hour to set up and hey presto all my problems disappeared, this also works through ARC so my virgin Remote switches all 3 off and on and the sound is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality, amazing value and features After a year+ of looking for a half-decent sound system, having tried a top-of-the-range LG soundbar with wireless rear speakers, and then an LG HtiB, this Yamaha was my final hope to pair with my LG CX. Can't put into words how happy and relived I am that it just WORKS! HDMI control works flawlessly, with the LG remote controlling the volume, and the system switching audio and video input based on the most recently active device (e.g. turning a set-top box on). Just make sure all the devices you plug in are HDMI CEC enabled, as one of mine wasn't and it caused some problems until I narrowed it down. In conclusion, a great system that provides amazing sound quality and immersive sound, especially for the price. 100% recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Properly good Been looking to upgrade from a soundbar for a while and stumbled across this package on richer sounds. Based on the other reviews I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did. Simple to set up, no more than a couple of hours and most of that was running the wires. The unit recognised the inputs, sky Q and Xbox, and displays them correctly. The sound is really good, really clear centre speaker for dialogue which was lacking on the sound bar. Rear surround is really good especially for gaming and the bass is spot on. Not over the top but really gives a good boom when needed. Overall, for the price , you can’t beat this package. Picture quality is superb, sound quality is superb and price was spot on. Definitely recommend this package

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound My old Panasonic Blu Ray which provided me with surround sound packed in. I called Richer Sounds at Leeds who have always been a great help sorted me out with the Yamaha surround sound bundle. Which was easy to set up and the sound is far better than the Panasonic and works great with my LG tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, sleek look and brilliant value I brought this as a birthday present for my partners 40th and we all love it! Its better than being at the cinema and now our children won't watch a film without surround sound. It fits in well with other systems we have and even the neighbours have asked what we have as they've listened to alot of our films. Brilliant value and amazing help from the gentleman at the Liverpool store. Thank you for the speedy and amazing service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First ever surround sound system I did a lot of research into what I needed for my setup. This was a relatively cheap option for a 5.1 system which of course is a package including both the av receiver and the speakers which reduces the magnitude of the task for a newbie. The product is great so far. It arrived the next day on standard delivery. It took me approx 3 hours to setup. I imagine this is longer than necessary (newbie). The instructions are step by step and easy to follow. The laborious part of setup was exposing the speaker wire ends and running the wires around the room using pvc tape. If new to this, I'd advise you to watch a YouTube video showing how to attach the speaker wire. I was a bit unsure about configuration. A lot of YouTube videos showed configuration of speakers using a mic positioned where you view. However it didn't come with a mic to perform this exercise. Nonetheless, the speakers sound incredible and it was the last piece to the puzzle. I have been using standard desktop speakers hooked up to the optoma hd29he. The yamaha yht1840 has really transformed my experience into a legit home cinema. I'm more excited now about the sound than I am my 90 inch projector screen. Don't sleep on the sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A huge step up from my old system I bought a 4K TV but found my old Samsung blu ray surround system didn't work with 4k. I hummed and harred and I called Richer Sounds for some advise. I explained the situation and budget and was told about the Yamaha YHT1840. I purchased it and it arrived the next day. It was set up in no time and the sound is so much better. Very happy with the product and service received over the phone too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-round superb I'm no expert, it's worth saying, but I do trust my ears! For the price (and I feel this seemed quite well priced compared to other options), this is superb. Sound is crystal clear - both stereo and surround. I'm using the unit with ARC, so unit ARC to TV ARC via HDMI, then other devices into the relevant HDMI ports on the unit (PS4, Sky box and Chromecast). Feels as though there's too many devices and inputs and it wont work - but it all does, perfectly, first time. Look through the booklet/manual, it isn't heavy or overly-wordy, but it will help (i.e. using Smart TV features, such as Netflix or Disney+ etc. doesn't come out via the same TV input as your Sky box for instance, there's a pre-set 'other' channel on the unit). I can't speak more highly of this. All being well, this will be something that stays with me for a long time to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a discovery... great value system My old Samsung Home Cinema unit packed up so looked for a replacement so I could re-use speakers. Bought the Yamaha HTR2071 AR Receiver and got so much more than I expected at a great price, with excellent advice from Richer Sounds. Also connected in my Chromecast so can now play virtually everything from my phone/tablet/laptop through the sound system very easily, as well as having a built in tuner. Was so impressed with the sound and ease of use that I wanted one in another room so bought the YHT1840 kit which includes the same AR receiver but also includes the speakers, an amazing deal.
