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 Great improvement over the tv I purchased this to enhance the sound of the speakers from a very slim 4k television. I didn't want to pay a lot for a soundbar and wasn't really bothered about an additional subwoofer. Set it up through HDMI ARC and the Sky or TV remote control the volume and mute etc. I was worried that it was going to blast the neighbours out but it works well with just normal tv programs, just a clearer sound compared to the tv speakers and when you want to crank it up it comes alive. It's well built, doesn't look too cheap which is worth bearing in mind as it sits in front of the tv you are looking at all the time. If I have to grumble about anything then the screen menu is proper 1980's ceefax looking but the MusicCast app isn't too bad. Big thanks to the guy at Nottingham who set up and demo'd three soundbars for us and answered all our questions, excellent service. Many thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality This is a great sound bar with the usual Yamaha crisp sound. It takes a while to set up exactly how you want it but once done the only thing you need to do is switch between sound profiles for whatever you are watching. Great product at a good price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I had to send this back. When turning the TV on sound doesn't come out of the sound bar unless you turn it on. A Panasonic will turn on automatically. Also, the surround sound wasn't that convincing. Music sounded good but tv sound was a little disappointing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good for the money Not sure why Which said don't buy it. It seems pretty good to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of features / no subwoofer / decent audio This was really the only choice of soundbar for me. I wanted AirPlay to stream audio from my Apple TV and I wanted a small footprint - so no subwoofer. Apparently, this is the best soundbar with no subwoofer. I'll have to take everyone's word for it. So I love the connectivity and the MusicCast app is really good - working similarly to the Sonos app. I was hoping the YSP-1600 would render my Sonos Play 1 redundant, however, I was surprised that the tiny Sonos outperformed it sonically with a warmer sound. That's not to say the audio from the YSP-1600 isn't good, just I'll be keeping my Sonos for the time being (I do find MusicCast more reliable than the Sonos app though). If your requirements are similar to mine, then I'd recommend it. It does the job very well. If audio fidelity is more precious than space taken by a separate subwoofer, maybe look at spending more money. NB. the 'Music' setting is not good - just seems to add a tonne of reverb. Stick to 'Stereo' for music.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are better sound bars for cheaper prices With no digital display very hard to sort out the settings unless you are using HDMI which for some reason on my unit the sound keeps dropping out every few minutes so i,m having to use the optical port. My self i think the surround sound is poor and my £250 pound 2.1 lg unit is a lot better. My own stupid thought i threw the box away otherwise i would send it back. The main reason i brought this unit was so i could use my wharfdale subwoofer with it which works great but does not make up for all the cons on this soundbar.
