An amazingly versatile HTiB system that provides simple operation with network control via free Yamaha AV Controller App, plus enhanced audio capabilities with CINEMA DSP 3D for an enveloping home theater experience from a 5-channel speaker package and a powerful 10" 100W Subwoofer. With expanded Apple connectivity with AirPlay and versatile USB input for iPad compatibility, this system is also ready for the future with sophisticated technologies like 4k video pass-through and 20% less power consumption with ECO mode.
This review is from: YAMAHA YHT-797BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater System
Pros: Really nice unit, lots of features, everything plugged in and worked.
Cons: My review didn't post for some reason. Anyways I have been a Yamaha fan since the 70's and from dirt bikes to electronics they got it right. A couple of issues, the speaker wires they sent with the unit were a joke, I had to put on my reading glasses to make there was wire in there, cost me $40.00 out of pocket and an hour of time to stop the install go get parts ARRRGG, setup and tuning was a real pain in the rear, Blu-ray audio pass through was interesting but we got it, front left speaker has an issue getting replaced by Yamaha excellent CS on that, the remote is a little jenky but we ditched it right off with a universal. I have to admit very disappointed in the wire and overall complexity of setup. I personally own 2 Yamaha surround systems and have installed quite a few, this model was hands down the most complicated to do. Plan on spending a few hours tuning and tweaking make sure ALL your peripheral's are set the way that works before you call it good. DONT use the Y Pad microphone that made things worse.
Other Thoughts: Yamaha should be ashamed to even include speaker wire if this is what there pimping at this price level they should have included at least 16 or 18 gauge wire, what a joke. As I said have time set aside for tuning and tweaking.
