Yamaha YSP-4300 overview

  • 1Description

The black Yamaha YSP-4300 Digital Sound Projector & Wireless Active Subwoofer features a brushed-metal finish with mirrored sides that are designed to match most HDTVs. The system features a wireless active subwoofer with Advanced YST technology, which reproduces rich and powerful bass. The system also features a sound bar with 22 array speakers and two woofers. It can either be mounted on a wall or it can rest right in front of your flat-screen TV. The wireless subwoofer also allows for flexible placement, since it doesn't need to be right next to the sound bar. The YSP-4300 uses Digital Sound Projector Technology to reproduce true 7.1-channel surround sound.

With 7.1-channel surround, the YSP-4300 is compatible with both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound. The system achieves true surround sound by directing beams of various walls at various angles. And, you can choose from a variety of different listening modes. The YSP-4300 also includes a microphone that you can use with the IntelliBeam function to automatically set the optimum sound field. It features a compressed music enhancer as well, which restores what your music loses during compression. The YSP-4300 also features four HDMI inputs and an HDMI output that support 4K pass-through, 3D pass-through and CEC functionality. It's even equipped with an FM tuner with 40 station presets.

The YSP-4300 supports UniVolume and Clear Voice technology as well. UniVolume keeps all programs and commercials at the same volume level, while Clear Voice enhances the clarity and volume of dialogue and narrations. You can also enjoy wireless streaming of audio from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or computer with the optional YIT-W12 Wireless Transmitter (sold separately). The YSP-4300 can store up to three of your favorite settings for playback mode, CINEMA DSP mode and IntelliBeam measurement results. It's equipped with a front panel USB port that will play music from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or other USB device. The USB port will also charge your device. The YSP-4300 also features an ECO Mode for energy conservation.

Main Features

Sound Bar with 22 Array Speakers & YSP Technology
The sound bar uses 22 array speakers controlled by Yamaha's YSP technology plus two 2.5" (6.5 cm) woofer units in a large cabinet to deliver clearly positioned dialogue and surround effects. Plus, an aluminum body dampens unwanted vibrations, which results in an expansive sound field with three-dimensional properties
Wireless Subwoofer with Advanced YST Technology
The subwoofer has a large 6.5" (16 cm) driver and uses Yamaha's exclusive Advanced YST technology to produce clear, powerful bass. The circuit board has an ideal grounding pattern that ensures stable current supply. The Linear Port improves sound dispersion and is designed to minimize unnecessary noise
Wireless Streaming from iPod/iPhone/iPad or Mac/PC
The optional YIT-W12 Wireless Transmitter is sold separately and can be used with the YSP-4300. It lets you enjoy music wirelessly from your iPod/iPhone/iPad or Mac/PC. Yamaha-developed yAired technology provides uncompressed linear PCM transmission for accurate sound output
Digital Sound Projector Technology for True Surround Sound
The YSP-4300 achieves actual (not virtual) surround sound by producing beams of sound and using advanced processing to control their directions. You hear real 7.1-channel surround sound with natural ambience and imaging. Yamaha technology also provides a wide listening area and the elimination of listening fatigue
HD Audio Format Decoding
The YSP-4300 is compatible with popular surround sound formats, such as Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround, so you get the full effect of multichannel movie sound from Blu-ray disc players, as well as from all other digital sources
10 CINEMA DSP Programs
Yamaha's CINEMA DSP technology creates realistic soundscapes in any room. You can select 10 different programs, including three for movies, three for music and four for entertainment programs
Versatile Listening Modes
The YSP-4300 achieves true surround sound by directing sound beams off walls to reach the listener from various angles. The main mode is 5 BeamPlus2 for 7-channel sources. In addition, there are a wide variety of other listening modes. You can select Stereo + 3 BeamPlus2, 5 Beam, Stereo + 3 Beam, 3 Beam, Stereo, Target and My Surround
IntelliBeam Automatically Sets the Optimum Sound Field
This Yamaha exclusive feature ensures optimum multichannel sound reproduction with accurate image location. By monitoring and analyzing the sound with the microphone included with the YSP-4300, IntelliBeam automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimizing the level and frequency response of each beam. This makes initial setup both simple and acoustically accurate
HDMI (4 In / 1 Out) with 4K Pass-Through & 3D
Four HDMI inputs mean you can connect four high quality digital sources, each with just a single cable. The inputs support 4K pass-through, which allows the transmission of next-generation super high-resolution images and the transmission of 3D video
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
UniVolume Maintains the Same Volume Level
This feature, made possible by Yamaha-developed technology, maintains a consistent volume level between different channels, programs, commercials and input sources. It can be switched on and off
Easy Positioning in Front of a TV
Only 3.38" (86 mm) high, the YSP-4300 can easily be placed in front of your TV without blocking the screen. The height can be adjusted in two levels by adding included spacers. It is also wall mountable with optional brackets
Modern Design with Brushed-Metal Finish
The top surface of the sound bar is made of rigid aluminum with an elegant, brushed-metal finish, for a stylish look. The sides have a mirror finish that match most flat-panel HDTVs
Wireless Active Subwoofer Allows Flexible Placement
The wireless subwoofer eliminates the need to connect cables, so setup is faster and easier. It can be used in either a horizontal or a vertical position, providing additional flexibility. Plus, it also delivers powerful, high-quality bass sound
Front Panel USB Port for iPod/iPhone/iPad
A USB terminal on the front panel makes it quick and easy to plug in your iPod, iPhone or iPad to enjoy stored music. The digital connection ensures that there is no data loss, maintaining optimum sound quality. When connected, the iPod, iPhone or iPad will charge even when the YSP-4300 is in standby mode
Access to MP3 or WMA Tracks on USB Devices
The USB port also offers direct access to MP3 or WMA tracks on USB devices
HDMI CEC Functionality
When connected to a CEC-compatible TV, the YSP-4300 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
TV Remote Repeater for Signal Transmission
Even if the YSP-4300 blocks the TV's remote control signal, the TV Remote Repeater on the rear transmits the signal to the TV so operation is not affected
Dolby TrueHD Technology
Dolby TrueHD is Dolby's next-generation lossless technology developed for high-definition disc-based media. Dolby TrueHD delivers sound that is bit-for-bit identical to the studio master, unlocking the true high-definition entertainment experience on next-generation discs. When coupled with high-definition video, Dolby TrueHD offers sound as stunning as the HD picture
DTS-HD Technology
DTS-HD featured products have the ability to decode all streams required for DTS-HD Master Audio, but may have limitations in channel output and/or sampling frequency; or may utilize unique post processing
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
The HDMI interface supports uncompressed, all-digital audio and video via a single cable. It simplifies cabling and can provide an interface between most audio/video sources. HDMI can support all currently-available compressed audio formats (such as Dolby Digital and DTS) and most newer HDMI devices can support lossless digital audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio
x.v.Color Technology
x.v.Color reproduces a wide range of color that supports almost all of the colors that the human eye can detect

    Yamaha YSP-4300 reviews

    YSP-4300 Digital Sound Projector & Wireless Active Subwoofer (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sound quality Although this is not a discrete solution, the simulation of 5-1, 7-1 sound is very good. Set-up was extremely simple and took about 3mins to get a baseline calibration in my 400sq ft family room. During set-up the calibration mic must be directly centered to the sound bar; this sets the center listening position. However, it is possible to be sitting to the right or left (your normal sitting position) of the calibration, and actually move the center via the remote to shift the sound field. Good adjustments for eq. Still playing round The only negative I would give it (wasn't expecting the same field that I got from my discrete speaker system from the get-go) is the subwoofer doesn't have the guts I had with my Klipsch 250W 12 sub-woofer. I miss having Godzilla's foot steps not shake the cobwebs from the ceiling! I haven't found any way to modify the cut-off frequency (passes everything <=500hz) which is not to my preference. In addition, I have submitted a suggestion to Yamaha to provide a sub-woofer line out at either the sound bar or at the provided sub-woffer. I also requested the schematic for the receiver section of the subwoofer so I can tap/bypass the pre amplification stage to feed my Klipsch SW. It looks good, Sounds pretty good, and my wife loves the fact that I was able to take down all the speakers I had mounted around the room down and replace it with a single bar under the new 75 Samsung S7100. Guys....use this as an incentive to get a excellent quality sound bar! ....honey...did you realize if I get a sound bar, I can get rid of all these ugly speakers hanging from the wall? ..... Worked for me!
