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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality soundbar! Bought this recently! This bar has impressed me with it's high quality sound and it's neat minimalistic design. However, I am giving 4 star because couple of times I noticed the sound was slightly disrupted (?reason) and I wish if it had a screen which shows the volume level as its slightly tricky to adjust the correct balance for the TV, Bluetooth etc. Since I have hearing difficulties it would have been easier for me to set up the sound level with a screen, so that I can be sure that I am not disturbing my neighbours with loud noise! Yes, I am thoroughly enjoying the quality sound produced by this bar! Surround sound is working well in my flat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soundbar I've had this soundbar for a few weeks now and it's already proven to be a great step up from my previous system. The arc link feature on my TV is used to great effect minimising cabling and the MusicCast app is very versatile. It's linked to an Echo Dot for music and no matter what we've thrown at it the sound has been great with a perceptible surround sound effect. Richer Sounds were great to deal with both in store and on the phone.

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.
