Inside the unit’s front grille are 44 precisely calculated and positioned speakers. In order to create 7-channel sound beams (Front left/right, Centre, Surround left/right, Height left/right), each of the speakers is controlled by and individual delay time and is driven with its own independent amplifier circuit. These beams are projected onto the walls and ceiling, to be reflected accurately to the listening position. This creates the same sound as real wall and ceiling speakers —not a virtual sound, but real 3D surround sound reproduction. In addition, the YSP-5600 uses the Surround channel sound beam for Surround Back, and the Surround channel is phantom merged to support the equivalent of up to 7.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X reproduction.

Incorporates the First YSP to Create a Height Channel by Using Sound Beams from Specific Array Speakers

Height channel audio playback is realised by placing six array speakers at each end of the unit (a total of 12). For these array speakers, 28mm diameter units are used. In order to obtain the maximum sound beam effect, they are mounted on an angled baffle and sound beam vertical control is adapted. Sound field reproduction is just as if real speakers were mounted on the ceiling, so you get great sound without the bother of mounting speakers and stringing wires.



Intellibeam Automates the Height Channel Settings

The YSP-5600 employs beam optimisation and sound optimisation features with the aid of the supplied IntelliBeam microphone, allowing you to avoid troublesome listening-based setup and achieve highly accurate sound adjustments that best match your listening environment. Together, these two features are called IntelliBeam. The positions of the sound beams directed at the ceiling can also be automatically set. The YSP-5600 can thus reproduce the live music ambience of a variety of rooms.

Two Interrelated Apps Let You Easily Control the YSP-5600 and Connected Equipment

With the Home Theater Controller (WLAN) app you can use a smartphone or tablet to control the basic functions or beam adjustments of the YSP unit, while with the MusicCast Controller app you can control audio streaming to devices connected via MusicCast. These two apps are interconnected, making it simple to operate the YSP-5600 and connected devices. You can download these apps for free from the App Store or Google Play.

They wrote…

The YSP-5600 adds DTS:X and Dolby Atmos support to Yamaha’s long-running Digital Sound Projector range with impressive results. Key to this success is the driver array, which features no fewer than 46 units, and the company’s IntelliBeam signal processing and room optimisation that creates a remarkably authentic multichannel experience from a single enclosure. Dramatic bass weight comes from the wireless subwoofer, and integration into a home cinema setup (and beyond) is aided by 4K-capable HDMI switching, MusicCast multi-room functionality, Bluetooth and AirPlay streaming and smartphone control. Put simply, there’s no other soundbar like it.
