Far more than just a first class soundbar, the Yamaha YSP1600 is a complete network streaming device for all your music needs.

The original surround sound from a single box

The Yamaha YSP1600 offers the illusion of speakers all around, without the associated boxes and wires. In essence, the Yamaha bounces sound off the walls, from just one source to give a room-filling sound. At its heart are separate digital amplifiers, driving 8 'sound beam' drivers and two woofer units. Digital Sound Projector technology ensures optimum performance and a true 5.1 sound effect, while a choice of DSP modes allows you to tailor the sound to your exact requirements.

Built-in subs for deep bass
With dual 8.5cm woofers either side of the soundbar, you're guaranteed a rich, full-bodied sound that's a great improvement on standard TV speakers. If you require an even deeper bass for that full cinema effect, a subwoofer output lets you connect up your choice of active sub.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha YSP1600 is fully compatible with Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or tablet. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Wi-Fi, DLNA and a smart app for effortless streaming
Also standard with the YSP-1600 is Wi-Fi, giving easy connection to your home network. A DLNA certified connection makes streaming a breeze. You can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and listen to Internet radio stations and music services such as Spotify and Napster. Another great feature is the free Apple or Android app that lets you control many of the soundbar's functions from your smartphone, iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or tablet.

Ready for 4K
The Yamaha YSP1600 features 4K pass-through for its HDMI sockets. With 4K TVs now widely available this feature is rapidly becoming essential. For future compatibility, the YSP1600 adheres to the HDCP2.2 standard, meaning it will also be suitable for use with UHD (4K) video sources. The HDMI connections (1 in/1 out) are also 3D Ready and support Audio Return Channel (ARC) functionality for reduced cabling.

For a soundbar that's just as impressive with streamed music as your TV's sound, the Yamaha YSP1600 is a classic all-rounder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended I have been looking for a soundbar to fulfill these criteria: - clear sound and speech for films, and capable of passing 3D audio. - I don’t have the space for full surround sound / additional speakers, and only need sufficient wattage for a fairly small front room. - ability to link iPhone via Bluetooth, to ply music via Spotify. - soundbar length to be a maximum of 1 metre. This bar hits all of the above and performs really well. I don’t get a consistent feel that the touted ‘pretend’ surround is wholly immersive but it does add to the viewing / listening experience. Speech is crystal clear even when not using the ‘clear speech’ functionality. The built in subwoofers provide sufficient rumble to action scenes, although though those used to a dedicated sub will miss the extra levels of depth . I find the built in subs enhance music playback too, bass lines are cleanly reproduced. The ‘stereo’ setting is best for music playback, and is clear at high volume. The only downside is that sometimes the audio is too hard, the digital reproduction missing some of the inherent warmth found in certain voices and instruments. I suspect you have to pay if you want a better sound for music but overall I am very satisfied with using the bar for music playback. Generally, I’m very happy with the purchase although some may prefer more bass (there is a sub out port) and more HDMI ports (this has 2, one being ARC), this is a good bar at a relatively decent price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sounder with lots of features I bought this soundbar a week ago and I am very pleased with the sound and features. Easy to setup once I worked out the TV remote control (Sony TV).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this sound bar to improve listening quality of my LG television. Installation was simple using optical cable supplied and results are excellent. Connection to my DVD player by HDMI cable was also simple and results excellent especially when playing musical CDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent soundbar This is a brilliant soundbar with lots of settings for getting the sound that you want, with presets like movies and sports. I bought it especially for the clear voice setting which is a better clear voice sound than other well known makes I have tried. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha YSP - 1600. Sound Projector Bar. A super system without the associated boxes and wires. Just what I wanted. Chosen for me and installed by my son who knows all about these thing! (Although, I don't have a clue) He thought the Optical Cable was thin and flimsy and not what you would expect from Yamaha also more HDMI ports would be useful. Excellent service and delivery by Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good full sound I bought this as I had a bit extra cash at Christmas to buy a soundbar. I decided to purchase the Yamaha ysp 1600, After having it for a couple of weeks now I am well pleased, it has a full all round sound , great deep base sound from the two subwoofers , midrange is sharp and clear. It has many features such as Musicast , it allows me to stream music through my IPad ,and great sound when playing movies through my TV. Well pleased with my purchase

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive Sound from just a Bar After deciding to go down the soundbar route and a month of research including trialling the Yamaha 2700 I can honestly say that I’m happy with my choice. Just from a sound point of view movie night becomes cinema night thanks to the 5.1 virtual surround that does somehow manage to really throw different sounds out in various directions. Music is good too. Not quite on the level of a dedicated speaker made to play music but still clear, powerful and if you increase the sub woofer volume (which is built into the unit, not a separate sub) then you get decent bass too. On top of this it’s also part of the musiccast family. Multi room audio controlled through a dedicated app and soon even through Alexa! This generally works really well, having all speakers play on the network play together or separately. One it of advice I would recommend, if you find your WiFi is weak near where you set your speakers up, either use Ethernet or power line as it makes for a much more stable connection. All in all though for the price and function of the YSP-1600, I don’t think you can beat it.
