Surround sound from a single speaker
The Yamaha YSP-2700 offers the illusion of speakers all around without the associated boxes and wires. The Yamaha does this by bouncing sound off the walls, from just two sources (including the subwoofer) to give a room-filling sound that could easily convince you in to thinking there are many more speakers at work. With 16 dedicated speakers and amps, the surround sound effect is the most convincing of any soundbar in its class.IntelliBeam for the most tailored response
IntelliBeam ensures optimum multi-channel set-up by constant and precise monitoring and analysis of sound output via the supplied microphone. A wide choice of beam settings let you tailor the sound to your exact requirements including whether you're listening to stereo music or film in surround sound.Powerful bass response
Thanks to the separate, active subwoofer, this soundbar also has real clout. With its dedicated amplifier, the subwoofer puts the 'thud' into action films, for armrest-gripping home cinema. The subwoofer is wireless, too, meaning that it can be placed wherever is convenient in the room (mains connection required).MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha YSP2700 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-2700 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 Premium, Qobuz 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.Connect it all
Featuring three HDMI inputs, it's easy to connect up a Blu-ray player, games console and set-top box, as well as your TV. The sockets are compatible with HDR, HDCP2.2 and UHD 4K, meaning they'll work with the current generation of UHD4K Blu-ray players and TVs. Other inputs include both optical and coaxial digital inputs plus analogue phono inputs for your music sources.Sleek new style
With a height of just 51mm, the YSP2700 is much slimmer than its predecessors. This low height means that it won't block your TV's picture or remote sensor. The minimalist design and aluminium chassis matches the sleekest TVs. Tuck the subwoofer out of sight and you'll have room-filling sound without the visual impact of traditional surround sound systems.
