        I use this set for movies/television watching and listening to music.

        I've been happy with everything so far. I've inherited several sets of speakers from my dad and uncle over the years, and as this was my first new set, I was excited to compare. Fortunately, they sound great for the price, and I'd absolutely recommend them not just as a good starter-set, but as a cheap set for any discriminating listener.

          Comments about Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater System (Black):

          I was looking for an affordable 5.1 surround sound system and this was well-rated and very affordable. I paired it with a Yamaha RX-V373 receiver, another excellent Yamaha value, for our basement home theater 1080p projector. Since these speakers are 6 ohm instead of the more common 8 ohm, I needed to adjust my receiver's impedance down to 6 ohm, but it took only a minute or two with the RX-V373. Our receiver also has a YPAO sound optimization mic for automatic speaker setup and the results have been awesome. For our use with movies or music, this set-up rocks with great sound separation and deep base. For the price - it's an automatic no-brainer. You can't do better for the money (or even for some more money) so for the listed price, you know you bought an outstanding value in a great sounding system from a market leader in audio.

            Comments about Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater System (Black):

            I installed this speaker system on a Marantz 1406 receiver. It works really great. With this price, it is a bargain. The kit includes a short RCA cable to connect the subwoofer and a good amount of audio cable for the rest of the speakers, you can just cut it on the right length you need for each speaker, really great.

              I got this for my man cave. I knew I wouldnt be disappointed with anything from Yamaha. This system sounds great and did not disappoint me in anyway and inexpensive. Anyone that says this system doesn't sound great needs their hearing checked. The sound is clean and does put out thundering bass with movies & video games and deep bass with music. Paired up with my Onkyo this system cranks..

                I just got these and hooked them up last night. I use these in my garage with my onkyo. These speakers produce great sound and alot of punch. The highs, mids and bass are awesome. I'm very picky about my sound quality but went with what I know about Yamaha and was not disappointed at all.There's nothing wrong with this system at all. If you think there is, get your hearing checked.

                              Fills the room nicely with sound. I wanted to trim down from the huge speakers I had and was a bit leery, but all is well. They are fantastic for the price.

                                    Those are clearly meant for casual use or apartments. With a good a/v receiver, those little speakers does a surprising work. I didn't even have to play with the basses or trebles on my receiver. Using them on Yamaha RX-V367 5-CHANNEL HOME THTR RCVR (BLK) - YARXV367BL. The protective tissue is easily scratch-able, so be really careful while installing them!

                                    I bought these speakers for my dad. They not only look great, but they sound great! Lots of rich, room filling bass from the sub, too. I would like to buy another set of these for my bedroom.

                                          The worst part about these speakers is the speaker wire that ships with them. Other than that, the system is very reasonable for the price.
                                          If you are looking for blasting, or perfectly crisp, sound, keep looking. A lot of other speakers out there are much nicer, but for just adding basic surround sound in a small area, this do a great job for a great price.

                                            High Yamaha quality and excellent sound. The satellite speakers are clean, clear, and crisp, and the sub-woofer delivers deep, solid bass. Overall I feel it's a great product and an excellent value for the price.

                                              I hooked these up to an older Sony home theatre digital receiver (str de-695) and I am really impressed with the way these speakers sound for the price I paid. I was also impressed with the quality, style, and finish. These were a great buy!

                                              Used in conjunction with Yamaha HTR-6240 receiver. Sound is clear and fills the room nicely. Fit & finish is impressive, feels like a quality product that should hold up for years to come. I selected these speakers b/c I did not want speakers dominating my living room. I have them mounted in the four corners of my living room and they do not detract from the overall appearance of the room. The subwoofer provides good bass and is attractive looking. Overall a great product.
