Press Release

July 2011 – Consistently at the forefront of clever design, Yamaha Music is proud to announce the release of the innovative YSP-2200 digital sound projector.
‘YSP’ technology was developed to recreate the excitement of surround sound without the need for having speakers positioned around a room.

Ideal for listening environments with limited space or for those seeking an uncomplicated surround sound solution, the YSP-2200 fits discreetly into any room reproducing an impressive surround sound experience.

Comprising of a series of small speakers, each with their own independent built-in digital amplifier, the YSP-2200 applies sophisticated technology to control the orientation of the sound through focused ‘beams’. The centre channel sound is heard directly while audio from surrounding channels is heard after being reflected off walls. The resulting effect sounds incredibly like a multi- speaker system but without all the clutter typically associated with surround speakers and cables.

Faced with the reality that many consumers are moving away from wall-mounted flat panel TVs, Yamaha’s YSP-2200 is designed specifically to sit neatly in front of a flat panel TV. At less than 8cm high, the low and slim profile of the sound bar does not obscure the screen. Furthermore, the height-adjustable feet let you achieve optimum positioning depending on the dimensions of your TV. The subwoofer can also be conveniently placed vertically or horizontally depending on the available space.

Integrating the YSP-2200 with an existing home entertainment system could not be easier with Consumer Electronics Control (CEC). When the YSP-2200 is connected to a CEC-compatible TV, such as a Panasonic VIERA Link compatible TV, you are able to activate the YSP-2200 and TV using the TV’s remote control.

The YSP-2200 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the highest-quality sound from Blu-ray disc players and all other digital sources.
Yamaha’s sophisticated CINEMA DSP technology faithfully reproduces exhilarating soundscapes in any listening environment. The YSP-2200 allows you to select from 11 CINEMA DSP programs, including three ‘Movie’, three ‘Music’ and five ‘Entertainment’ programs.

Connectivity is also accounted for with Yamaha’s YSP-2200 providing 3 in/1 out HDMI connections with support for 3D. Audio Return Channel (ARC) enables audio from the TV to be heard from the YSP-2200 via a single HDMI cable with no need for an extra optical cable. HDMI also delivers Deep Colour, x.v.Colour and Auto Lip-Sync.

Seamless iPod and iPhone integration with the YSP-2200 is achieved using the included YDS-12 dock which normally retails for $179 (recommended retail price).
The YSP-2200 ensures uncomplicated surround sound and is suitable for any home listening environment. Yamaha’s exclusive IntelliBeam automated calibration feature ensures optimum multi-channel sound reproduction in any shaped room.

By monitoring and analysing the sound with the included microphone, IntelliBeam automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimising the level and frequency response of each beam. This makes initial setup both extremely simple and acoustically perfect.
The YSP-2200 has a recommended retail price of $1,499 and is available now. For more information on the YSP-2200 or the entire range of Digital Sound Projectors, please visit or call 1300 739 411.

2 people were compelled to have their say. We encourage you to do the same..

  1. PSLO says:

    Can I play my Ipad music through the Yamaha YSP 2200 ??


  2. Tino says:

    Hi PSLO,

    This is a great sounding unit. Not to mention the great surround sound when watching movies, TV or other videos from my DLNA server. It is great for music too.

    I have the iPhone/iPod dock and it controls your iPhone from the remote. I bought a bluetooth receiver, (dock connector where you put in the dock in lieu of the iPhone on ebay), then you can play your iOS device wirelessly.

    I also have an apple tv connected to it. You can use it to stream music and videos to the connected YSP and sounded even better.

    To make the story short, the unit itself cannot play directly music from iPod but with the extra items I mentioned above, it will. The most cheaper solution is buy a wire where you can connect your iPad’s speaker output to the unit.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
