Yamaha YSP-2700 Digital Sound Projector replaces the YSP-2500 and YSP-2200 before it and comes as the latest award winner in a long line of award winners.
It is designed for exceptional sound quality to match and bring out the best of beautiful images. Compatible with MusicCast, it offers a new music style and creates a superior presence in your chosen room.
7.1 Surround Sound
YSP-2700 creates beams of sound by combining the sound projector’s many speaker groups via digital signal processing and reflects them off the walls of the room, actually reproducing a realistic 7.1channel surround effect with the sound coming from the left and right and even from the rear. The listening area is expanded so you enjoy an extremely powerful, natural sense of presence unobtainable with virtual surround methods.
The front unit of the YSP-2700 is equipped with 16 2.8 cm high sound quality array speakers which create beams of sound. It optimises the layout of its array speakers, boosting the reflection properties of the beams to maximise sound quality. The centre unit is made from aluminium with outstanding rigidity. The top cover is a thick aluminium panel with a hairline finish, giving it an elegant appearance. The subwoofer has a simple design that blends nicely with any interior.
Sleek & Sophisticated
With a height of only 51 mm, the slim-design centre unit can be placed in front of a TV without blocking the picture. The high-class minimalist design and aluminium chassis will definitely add a sophisticated appearance to your interior decor. The subwoofer eliminates the need to connect cables, so setup and placement are faster and easier. This is a convenient subwoofer that delivers powerful, high quality bass sound.
All Your Sources
Use all your MusicCast products together or separately. MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from external devices such as a TV or BD player connected to the YSP-2700. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.
Bluetooth or AirPlay
You can hear all the music sources from your smartphone via wireless Bluetooth or Airplay connection. You can play music from music apps, radio apps, or YouTube type video hosting services. Simply tap the beautifully designed screen and take control of all the audio equipment and all the music in your home. It is equipped with the latest Bluetooth technology, making wireless operation more convenient than ever. You can stream music from the YSP-2700 to Bluetooth headphones for private listening or to Bluetooth speakers.
Yamaha’s IntelliBeam room acoustics calibration system automatically set the perfect listening environment. All the user has to do is push a few buttons while following the on-screen instructions. The system measures the room's acoustic properties such as size, shape and wall material, then adjusts the beam angles, focal lengths, volume and other audio parameters. The result is precise sound optimisation matched to the listening position, for any size and shape room.
Cinema DSP programmes are based on actual sound field data, measured in famous concert halls, jazz clubs, live performance venues and theatres. The result is an amazingly spacious and realistic sound field experience for enjoying music and viewing movies in your living room. YSP-2700 features 10 different programmes for selection.
The Compressed Music Enhancer restores frequency response lost during digital compression, so your music sounds the way it should. It is optimised for any compressed content, for vivid, lively sound quality during wireless playback. The function can be switched on and off via the remote control, according to the input source.
4K Ultra HD Support
The YSP-2700 decodes HD Audio signals to ensure that you hear the best possible sound from Blu-ray Disc players, as well as from other digital sources. The YSP-2700 has three HDMI input terminals and one HDMI output terminal, and supports 4K/60p video signal pass-through. It’s also compatible with HDCP2.2 digital copy protection. This gives it extensive expandability, so you’ll be able to use it far into the future.
'The most convincing surround sound experience you’ll get outside a full 5.1 system. For; Wide, spacious surround sound, tonally well balanced, good dynamics, slim design, great connectivity.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine August 2016)
'All HDMIs support HDCP 2.2 and 4K/60p video, plus they are able to decode HD audio formats like Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS:HD. For that reason, we recommend using the soundbar to do the HDMI switching instead of your telly – as long as it has enough inputs for you of course.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine August 2016)
'Put on a movie and this Yamaha sounbdar immediately demonstrates just how wide it’s capable of throwing the sound... It’s a well-balanced sound, with low-end wallop controlled and light-footed enough that it doesn’t impress itself too heavily upon the rest of the frequency range. It gives more substance to the midrange, which is focused and decently detailed. Voices have no hard edges and the sound has a touch more authority.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine August 2016)
'Dynamically it works well with sound effects and soundtracks to ramp up tension. It articulates the differences between loud and soft with ease, jumping into action but equally capable of scaling right back too. The YSP-2700 makes a good case as a decent music system too, with its balanced sound working as well with lossless music as it does lower-res Spotify streams.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine August 2016)
'That wide soundstage in particular is certainly not something to be sniffed at. It isn’t as explicit an effect as a full surround-sound system will deliver, of course, but the placement of sound in areas that other soundbars simply can’t reach makes for a more involving soundbar experience than any other we’ve heard. There’s no doubt its price tag will mean the YSP-2700 sits at the top end of most budgets, but its excellent performance and unique capabilities more than justifies it.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine August 2016)
