Yamaha’s Proprietary Surround System – YSP –
YSP creates beams of sound by combining the sound projector’s many speaker groups via digital signal processing and reflects them off the walls of the room, actually reproducing a realistic surround effect with the sound coming from the left and right and even from the rear. The listening area is expanded so you enjoy an extremely powerful, natural sense of presence unobtainable with virtual surround methods.
Sound Beams Reproduce Amazingly Real Surround Sound
The front unit of the YSP-2500 is equipped with 16 1-1/8" (2.8 cm) high sound quality array speakers which create beams of sound. It optimizes the layout of its array speakers, boosting the reflection properties of the beams to maximize sound quality. And by having the subwoofer as a separate unit, it achieves a superior sense of sound orientation and powerful bass. The result is 7.1ch surround sound with incredibly high sound quality.
IntelliBeam Automatically Sets the Optimum Sound Field
The acoustic properties (size and shape of room, type of wall material), which differ according to the listening environment, are measured by a specialized microphone. The volume and sound quality of the YSP, and the angle of the beams, the focal lengths, route lengths and other fine adjustments matched to the listening point are automatically optimized. You can achieve the ideal listening environment by simple operations: just pushing buttons while following the screen instructions.
Highly Rigid Aluminum Chassis with Thick Aluminum Top Panel Ensures Clear and Rich Sound
The chassis of the front unit is made of aluminum, a highly rigid, non-magnetic material. The top is an aluminum panel that prevents unnecessary vibration and helps to ensure sound clarity. In addition, the internal structure has been precisely calculated and systematically arranged, optimizing the layout of the speaker units and improving sound dispersion characteristics. The result is highly accurate, broadly spreading surround sound.
Great Sound for All Types of Listening Enjoyment
The YSP-2500 offers six Beam modes. You can choose the one that best suits the source you are listening to. The modes include 5 Beam+2, which faithfully reproduces 7.1ch surround sound, 3 Beam, which is suitable for widening the listening area for many people to listen to music, or Stereo + 3 Beam, which is perfect for enjoying a musical DVD. By using the HOME THEATER CONTROLLER App, you can make fine adjustments to the beam angles and volume to get the sound you prefer.
Support for HDMI 2.0 Specification
The YSP-2500 supports the latest version of HDMI for 4K 50/60p transmission of super high resolution images. Three HDMI inputs mean you can connect three high quality digital sources, each with just a single cable. 3D compatibility allows the transmission of 3D video.
High Sound Quality Wireless Music Streaming with Bluetooth
Enjoy music from your smartphone or tablet wirelessly, with the full surround sound experience of the YSP-2500. And with support for aptX™ audio coding, Bluetooth performance is better than ever, delivering full audio bandwidth for sound quality the same as wired listening with both compressed and non-compressed sources. In addition, a Bluetooth standby mode provides the convenience of having the YSP-2500 turn on and off automatically.
Easy Operation from Your Smartphone or Tablet for Detailed Sound Settings
The YSP-2500 is compatible with the free HOME THEATER CONTROLLER app for smartphones and tablets. Its easy-to-see and easy-to-use operating screen uses icons to let you easily perform a variety of operations including setting surround programs or sound quality while watching your screen.
CINEMA DSP Technology Brings You the Sound Fields of Famous Concert Halls and Theaters.
Yamaha’s ultra-sophisticated CINEMA DSP technology creates thrillingly realistic soundscapes in any room. You can select 10 different programs, including three Movie, three Music and four Entertainment programs. CINEMA DSP programs are created by recording actual sound field data in performance spaces around the world, then applying ultra- sophisticated digital processing techniques. Yamaha was the first and is still the leader in providing a truly realistic surround sound experience.
HD Audio Format Decoding
The YSP-2500 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray Disc players, as well as from all other digital sources.
Compressed Music Enhancer
When music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. This function restores what was lost, so your music always sounds the way it should
HDMI CEC Functionality
When connected to a CEC-compatible TV, the YSP-2500 will turn on and off together with the TV, and you can use the TV remote unit to control the volume. CEC also provides advanced functionality with other components.
Wireless Active Subwoofer Provides Rich Bass and Allows Flexible Placement
The subwoofer is an active type with two 4" (10 cm) woofer units and a 75W analog amp. Its rigid body lowers unnecessary resonance. The circuit board has an ideal grounding pattern that ensures stable current supply. It reproduces rich and solid bass with superior stereo. And because there is no need to connect cables, setup and placement are faster and easier. It can be installed vertically or horizontally.
Low Design for Easy Positioning in Front of a TV
The front unit with stand is only 2-7/8” (73 mm) high. The super-low design means that if the stand is not used, the height is 2” (51 mm),, allowing placement in front of a TV without blocking the screen. It is also wall mountable with the optional SPM-K20.
TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission
Even if the YSP-2500 blocks the TV's remote signal reception point, the TV Remote Repeater on the back transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected.
Design Imparts a Strong Feel of Luxury to Create a High Quality Space
The top surface of the soundbar is made of one piece of aluminum with superior stiffness, high texture and a hairline finish, for a look that is stylish and imparts a strong feel of luxury. The sides have a mirror finish that harmonizes beautifully with the TV. Available in either black and silver, so you can choose the color that best matches your TV.
You can enjoy high sound quality virtual 7.1ch surround sound from headphones. A great way to fully enjoy movies or games with powerful surround sound without disturbing others.
