        Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System:

        Bought these packaged with YST-SW012BL sub woofer. For the price you couldn't find a nicer set. I purchased these to go with new 5.1 avr without hearing them first, something that is not recommended. Loses a star because of a perceived slight lack of clarity in mid frequencies.
        Not disappointed as they sound very good, but miss my old speakers. Those speakers did cost 5 times more than these!

          Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System:

          I searched the internet for information on a replacement system because my original system was fried by a lightening strike to my home. I am really glad that I chose this Yamaha system. My previous experience with Yamaha electronics has paid off as the performance of this new system is awesome. Kudos to Yamaha for a job well done!

            I watch a lot of movies and this system is replacing an old but reliable KLH surround speaker system. Still trying to fine tune the speakers in my living room. I'm almost to where the sound should be. Overall, I'm satisfied with not only the sound quality but the size and cost, too.

                  Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System:

                  I purchased this product to provide home theater sound while watching movies and tv, and also for a stereo for playing mp3's and records on my turn table. So far, I have been completely satisfied with my purchase. The price was fair, the setup was very easy. I followed the instructions, hooked everything up and absolutely everything worked perfectly. I was able to name all of my inputs which makes it easy to use. My IPod works obviously, but also my USB memory stick works to play music as well. There are a ton of settings that are easy to set to customize everything for my needs. I did purchase Yamaha NS-6490 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers which I have not yet hooked up but I expect them to work even better than the stock front speakers.

                  Comments about Yamaha 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System:

                  These speakers were purchased to better the sound from our smaller flat screen television that's used primarily by my Nine year-old daughter. The TV is located in our "Loft" room and has stock, small, tinny sounding built in speakers. The sound from these new speakers is better than what I have at the moment for our larger, main TV in our Living Room. We're finding ourselves watching more TV in our loft now because the sound is so much better. I highly recommend this product. However, I recommend buying some slightly larger Speaker wire because the 24 gage wire they give you is really too dainty to trust when pulling it through your attic and down the walls of your house.

                    These speakers are so good that I'm tempted to move it from the master bedroom to the main place we watch movies, in the family room.

                      Needed an inexpensive set of speakers for the kids play room/family room TV. These speakers put out some quality sound for the price.
