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 au.yamaha.com or call 1300 739 411.
