4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: The sound projection effect is definitely there. Sounds much better than the speakers from my HDTV. Service support is excellent. I had a question about my Blu-ray player not recognizing the Yamaha as a 5.1 Dolby digital device but the Yamaha was decoding 5.1 and outputting 5.1 sound. Reply was quick.

Cons: Although I'm going to list a number of cons here, I am satisfied with the purchase.
(1) Does not do Blu-Ray Dolby TrueHD.
(2) Bass is weak. Definitely needs powered subwoofer.
(3) Room geometry is critical. There *must* be walls to bounce off in order to have the sound projection effect.
(4) Labels for connectors cannot be seen if the unit is wall mounted with the SPM-K30 mounting bracket.
(5) HDMI cables MUST be connected before the unit is wall mounted because access is impossible after that.

Other Thoughts: I bought this unit at $799 ( the coupon discount wasn't available when I bought it which brought the price down to $679) and it is worth the price.
I wouldn't pay more for it.

4 out of 5 eggsnice speakers

Pros: good speakers. easy to setup. audio sounds good. can definitely makes out the front left and right audio but not so much of the rear. like the audio beaming feature for times when I want to watch a movie but don't want to disturb others or when the dishwasher is on. Based on online reviews Yamaha's speaker bars are at the top or near the top you can buy

Cons: In order for the speaker bar to work correctly the room needs to be the right shape with little objects in the way. for me, my family is next to the kitchen with cabinets and etc. i think this deminishes the rear audio capability of the speaker bar.

Other Thoughts: even though i can't make out the rear audio as well as I would like I can't complain to much because my alternative was to punch-out holes on my walls which I didn't look forward to doing. I'm also not an audiophile so my perspective comes from a person with little to average knowledge of audio.

5 out of 5 eggsHome Theatre Sounds Great

Pros: I bought this elsewhere and paid somewhat more. Newegg didn't sell it when I bought it. This unit creates a sound beam with each pair of speakers that can be aimed to produce discrete surround sources from the reflection of the walls and ceiling of the room. Other sound bars may use psychoacoustic tricks and cost much less.
The Yamaha has multiple inputs, a sensible remote, and the sound is very clean. It plays loud enough for my room and my taste. I recommend a substantial subwoofer to accompany this unit for the best sound.

Cons: Low end sound from 4 inch woofers? I used my ancient MK Volkswoofer and WOW!

Other Thoughts: I hoped other manufacturers would use the multiple sound beam concept. I am glad to see Yamaha step up with these innovative home theater models.
I had my 4000 sitting on the floor for the longest time and finally bought the wall mount bracket. The unit is heavy enough that I worried it might fall but not yet. I like the black one better.
If you but this unit buy a subwoofer for it.
