Digital Sound Projector Technology: The Yamaha YSP-1400 soundbar speaker creates
virtual surround sound by producing beams of sound that reflect off
the walls in controlled directions, delivering an amazingly immersive
experience. The Yamaha YSP-1400 applies a sophisticated Digital Sound Projector technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by focusing it
through multiple beams. The center channel sound is heard directly, while sounds
from other channels are heard after reflecting off walls. The result is a
multichannel (up to 5.1ch) surround sound that sounds like a multi-speaker
system, but without the need for extra speakers. The position of the beams can be adjusted for your listening
location by using the included remote control or a free downloadable app on your
Multi-Speaker Array w/ Dual Subwoofers: The YSP-1400 is equipped with
eight 1.125" array speakers on the front and two 3.25" down-firing subwoofers
integrated into the feet of the soundbar speaker. These drivers are
powered by a built-in amplifier which provides 2 watts of power to each array
speaker and 30 watts to each subwoofer. Combined, they deliver sound with
exceptional power and presence. With 3.25" subwoofer drivers built into the feet
of the sound bar combined with high-rigidity bass reflex ports and a
large-volume cabinet, the YSP-1400 delivers clear, rich and deep bass for movie
sound effects and music. The independent right and left channel configuration
provides superior sound imaging.
Dolby Digital/DTS Compatible with Cinema DSP: The YSP-1400 is compatible with popular
surround sound formats, such as Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround, so you
get the full effect of multichannel movie sound. Yamaha's ultra-sophisticated Cinema DSP
technology enhances Dolby Digital/DTS and two-channel soundtracks to create a thrillingly realistic soundscape in
your living room. When the source is two-channel, the sound is played back with
Dolby Pro Logic II technology. You can select from five different Cinema DSP program
modes; including Movie, Music, Sports, Game, or TV Program.
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Yamaha YSP-1400 is fitted with
both analog and digital inputs to connect your flat-panel television and other
AV components. The soundbar speaker features two analog inputs (3.5mm/RCA) and
two digital inputs (optical/coaxial). The soundbar's digital inputs support PCM,
Dolby Digital, and DTS audio signals. You should turn your TV's speakers off or
set the TV's volume to 0.
Audio Enhancements: The Yamaha YSP-1400 soundbar speaker
provides a variety of audio adjustments to enhance your movie and music
- Clear Voice: The Clear Voice function raises the level
of dialog and narrations while maintaining overall sound quality. Movies, TV
shows, sports commentary, and news broadcasts are more clearly audible.
- UniVolume: UniVolume is a Yamaha-developed technology
that maintains a consistent volume level between different channels,
programs, commercials, and input sources. For instance, when watching TV
while using UniVolume, the volume of commercials will not be louder than the
program being viewed. The same is true when switching sources to watch a DVD
or Blu-ray movie, or to listen to music on CD. This is particularly helpful
for late night watching and listening when spikes in volume can disturb
others in the house or apartment building. This feature can be switched On
- Dynamic Range: Dynamic Range Control adjusts the
dynamic range in relation to the volume, useful at low volume. It can be set
to Normal, Standard, or Maximum.
- Position: In order to calibrate the speaker's sound beams, you
can customize your listening position and the dimensions (width x length) of
- Channel Level: The soundbar speaker's surround effect is achieved
using six (5.1) audio channels. While listening to a series of test-tones
from the speaker, you can adjust the volume level of each channel to balance
the sound heard from your listening position.
- Audio Delay Control: This technology adjusts
the timing of the picture and dialog, so they are always in sync with one
Subwoofer Output: The Subwoofer Out mono-RCA jack on the
rear-panel of the Yamaha soundbar speaker lets you connect an additional
subwoofer to enjoy even more powerful bass sound. You cannot use the speaker's
built-in subwoofer and the external subwoofer connection simultaneously.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Yamaha YSP-1400 soundbar speaker supports Bluetooth (v.2.1+EDR) A2DP wireless audio streaming. This
allows you to stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled
device (such as your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/table, or
computer/laptop) to the YSP-1400 soundbar speaker. You will continue to
navigate your music and view song/artist information from your Bluetooth-enabled
device. This unit pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device with a single press
of a button. Up to 8 devices can be paired, but only one can be used at a time.
Once paired, the YSP-1400 will automatically re-connect with your device when in
wireless range (up to 33').
Remote Control w/ IR Repeater: The YSP-1400's IR remote
control is simple and easy to use. It lets you turn the power On or Off, adjust
the volume, do other basic operations, and lets you switch the surround modes.
The YSP-1400 also has the ability to "learn" the TV remote control operation, so
you can use the TV remote control to turn the YSP-1400 On or Off, and to adjust
its volume. This allows you to use either the TV remote or the Yamaha remote for
easy operation. Even if the YSP-1400 blocks the TV's remote control signal, the
IR repeater on the back of the soundbar transmits the signal to the TV so
operation is not affected.
Remote App (for Apple iOS/Android): The YSP-1400 is
compatible with Yamaha's Home Theater Control App (HT Controller), available for
free download for Apple iOS (5.1+) and Android (2.3.3+) devices. Download this
app from the
iTunes App Store or
Google Play Store. This remote app makes it easy
to control the sound bar via a Bluetooth connection; including input selections,
surround modes, and detailed audios settings; including sound beams.
Mounting Options: With a rich, glossy-black finish and a
slim design, the YSP-1400 complements the look of your flat-screen TV and fits
neatly in front of it. When placed on a stand, the soundbar's feet allow it to
straddle the base of your flat-panel TV. The soundbar speaker can also be
mounted to a wall using the two rear-panel keyhole slots, the included mounting
template, and mounting hardware (sold separately). For optimum surround sound
effect, select a preset position mode (Left, Center, or Right) according to
where the soundbar speaker is installed in your room.
Auto Standby: The soundbar will automatically turn off when
there is no operation for 8 hours, or not audio input and no operation for 30
