Digital Sound Projector Technology: While many other soundbars
offer only stereo audio or a "virtual surround" experience, the YSP-5600
soundbar speaker uses Yamaha exclusive Digital Sound Projector technology to
produce sound beams that reflect off the walls & ceiling of your room to deliver a truer
surround sound experience, and even supports Dolby Atmos & DTS:X (via future
firmware update) for 7.1.2ch surround. The result is an amazingly expansive & immersive listening experience that
brings your favorite movies, TV shows, and music to life.
- 44 Beam Drivers: Beautifully designed with 44 precisely
calculated and positioned beam drivers (1.5" x 32 / 1.125" x 12), the YSP-5600 effectively creates
7-channel sound beams (front left/right, center, surround left/right, &
height left/right). Using Yamaha Digital Sound Projector technology, each
beam driver is controlled by individual delay times and is driven with its
own independent amplifier circuit. These beams are projected onto the walls
and ceiling, and reflected to the listening position.
- Height Channels: The height channels are created by placing
12 of the total 44 beam drivers in two six speaker arrays, one on each end of
the YSP-5600 soundbar. For the maximum sound beam effect, these drivers are mounted on an angled baffle with sound beam
vertical control. The height speakers create multi-dimensional sound by
reflecting directed beams off the ceiling to the listening position. The result is realistic sound field reproduction with true
height, as if real speakers were mounted on the ceiling. You get great sound
without having to mount ceiling speakers or run speaker wire.
- Dual Subwoofers: Two powerful 4.5" subwoofers
are built into the soundbar speaker to deliver deep and
expansive bass for both movies and music. Each woofer is powered by its own
discrete amplifier for tight, dynamic bass.
IntelliBeam Auto Sound Optimization: The YSP-5600 employs IntelliBeam
automatic sound optimization using the supplied microphone for the best
performance in your listening environment. IntelliBeam searches for the
locations in your room where the sounds are properly reflected to the microphone
and then performs adjustments to obtain the optimum balance of sound quality and
volume, depending on the reflection locations. This also includes setting the
position of sound beams directed at the ceiling. IntelliBeam will achieve highly
accurate and impressive soundfield reproduction for almost any room. You can
choose from 3 IntelliBeam modes to optimize the sound.
- Beam + Sound Optimization: Optimizes the beam angle,
delay, volume, and quality so the parameters best match your listening
environment (takes about 3 minutes).
- Beam Optimization: Optimizes the beam angle only (takes
about 1 minute).
- Sound Optimization: Optimizes the beam delay, volume,
and quality only (takes about 3 minutes).
Note: In addition to the auto setup, you can manually fine tune the
Playback Modes: Once you have completed the IntelliBeam setup, you can choose
from a variety of Digital Projector playback modes.
- 3D Surround: In 3D Surround mode, surround sound can be
heard in front of you, beside you, behind you, and above you. The YSP-5600
not only reflects its beam drivers off your side and rear wall, it also
directs its height beam drivers upward and reflects them off the ceiling.
Compared to conventional surround sound playback with only a horizontal
plane, this gives your surround sound environment a greater sense of
immersion and reality with up to 7.1.2 channels of discrete audio.
- Surround: In Surround mode, 5-channel sound beam
drivers create a soundfield for surround sound playback for sound that is
all around you; including in front of , beside, and behind you. The soundbar
speaker's height channel beam drivers are not used.
- Stereo: In this mode, the soundbar speaker uses only the right front and left
front channels for stereo playback; center, surround and height channels are
not used. When multi-channel audio signals are input, they are down-mixed to two channels.
- Target: Target Playback mode outputs sound beams from a
channel for optimal listening from a specific seated location.
- My Surround: The MySurround mode creates rich surround sound
effects in rooms with less than optimal surround sound conditions.
Immersive Surround Sound: In addition to popular
Dolby Digital formats such as
Dolby Digital EX /
Dolby Digital Plus /
Dolby TrueHD and
DTS-HD Master Audio /
DTS-HD High Resolution /
DTS 96/24, the Yamaha YSP-5600 offers support of the newest Dolby
Atmos and DTS:X (via future firmware update) truly immersive discrete surround sound formats for breathtaking
home theater experience.
- Dolby Atmos: With
Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead,
to fill your home theater with a thrilling & immersive surround sound
astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth.
- DTS:X (future firmware update required):
DTS:X is the next generation object-based, multi-dimensional audio
technology from DTS. Unbound from channels, DTS:X conveys the fluid movement
of sound to create an incredibly rich, realistic and immersive soundscape -
in front of, behind, beside and above the audience - more accurately than
ever before. DTS:X offers the ability to automatically adapt the audio to
the speaker layout that best fits your space.
DTS:X will be enabled through an online firmware update coming later this
Note: To enjoy Dolby Atmos you most connect your Blu-ray
player's HDMI output directly to the HDMI input on the soundbar, because your
TV's HDMI ARC jack will not support Dolby Atmos.
CINEMA DSP 3D: CINEMA DSP technology creates thrillingly realistic
soundscapes in any room. Conventional multichannel audio reproduction systems
base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround decoding, using
matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA
DSP Digital is much more advanced; actually creating independent sound fields
that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue,
music, and effects located in separate soundfields, you will hear sound with
directionality, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and presence. The CINEMA DSP 3D Mode adds an expansive height direction to
the soundfield, creating an even more immersive sound space. The YSP-5600 supports this
feature by using special array speakers to create vertical beams. You can enjoy
the feeling of a live performance with standard sound formats, and combine this
effect with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X to enjoy a more natural expansion of the 3D
surround sound. You can choose from Cinema DSP Movie, Music, and Entertainment
- Movie Soundfields: Spectacle, Sci-Fi, & Adventure
- Entertainment Soundfields: Sports, Talk Show, Drama, &
- Music Soundfields: Music Video, Concert, & Jazz Club
Audio Technologies: The YSP-5600 soundbar utilizes four of Yamaha's
audio technologies (Clear Voice, Dialog Lift, Compressed Music Enhancer, &
Adaptive DRC) for a better
listening experience when watching movies or listening to your digital music
- Clear Voice: Human voices, such as dialog in TV shows and movies,
news, and sports commentary are played back with extra clarity. This
technology enhances the acoustic characteristics of speech and increases the
perceived volume level, while still maintaining the quality of the
soundtrack's background sound & effects.
- Dialog Lift: With many soundbars positioned below the TV, dialog
and vocals can often seem misplaced relevant to the people talking onscreen.
To correct this problem, the YSP-5600 has a Dialog Lift function (adjustable
in three steps) that raises the reflecting beams from the array speakers to
the proper height for accurate onscreen dialogue. Enjoy sounds and images
that are perfectly aligned, just as in a movie theater.
- Compressed Music Enhancer: This technology enhances and extends
bass & treble, which tend to be weak in digitally compressed music formats
such a MP3, WMA, and AAC. The Compressed Music Enhancer makes your
compressed audio sound more musically dynamic and rich.
- Adaptive DRC: Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
adjusts the dynamic range in relation to the volume, useful at low volume.
HDMI 2.0: The Yamaha YSP-5600 is fitted with four HDMI 2.0 inputs and one
ARC-enabled HDMI 2.0 output. The HDMI jacks support the latest HDMI 2.0
- 4K/60Hz + HDCP 2.2: Thanks to transmission of 4K video at 60
frames per second, you can fully enjoy the high definition video quality of
without degradation. HDMI Input 1 and the HDMI output also adheres to the HDCP 2.2 copyright protection
standard for 4K video transmission.
- Multi-Channel Audio: The YSP-5600's HDMI jacks support
2ch linear PCM (up to 192kHz/24-bit) & 7.1ch linear PCM (up to
192kHz/24-bit). The following Dolby Digital formats are supported -
Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital EX, & Dolby TrueHD. The following DTS
formats are supported - DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, DTS ES,
& DST 96/24. Dolby Atmos & DTS:X (requires firmware update) is also
- ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature allows audio
to be sent from your compatible TV to the soundbar speaker through the same
HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your TV. This
eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.
- 3D-Ready: The soundbar speaker's HDMI jacks will accept
3D video from your 3D Blu-ray player and output the video signal in 3D to
your 3D-ready HDTV.
- Deep/x.v.Color: The Yamaha soundbar also supports Deep
Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than
standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
- Auto Lip-Sync: The soundbar automatically adjusts the
delay in output timing between video signals and audio signals so they match
when you are watching a movie. You can also manually adjust the audio delay
between 0 to 500 ms.
- Because with many televisions, the ARC-enabled HDMI input
will only pass 2ch PCM from devices connected to the TV via HDMI or analog, we
recommend that you connect your Blu-ray/DVD player, Satellite/Cable box, or
Gaming console to the Yamaha soundbar directly; and then connect
the YSP-5600's ARC-enabled HDMI output to your TV's ARC-enabled HDMI input. This
setup will give you with the best overall sound performance.
- The soundbar does not offer HDR pass-through. If you have a HDMI
source device with HDR capability, you will need to connect it directly
to your TV. Audio from the HDR source device will be sent back out to
the soundbar via HDMI ARC at only 2ch PCM for many TVs (you will lose Dolby Atmos
support and may also lose
Dolby Digital/DTS capability).
Analog + Digital Audio Inputs: In addition to HDMI
connectivity, the YSP-5600 soundbar is equipped with one analog stereo RCA input,
one coaxial digital input, and two optical (toslink) digital inputs. The digital inputs
support Dolby Digital, DTS, and 2ch PCM up to 96kHz/24-bit).
Note: The digital output terminals of most newer
flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby
Digital/DTS surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection,
or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from sources
connected to the TV via HDMI, or RCA (like your Blue-ray/DVD player or
Subwoofer Output & Optional Wireless Subwoofer Kit: The YSP-5600's subwoofer output lets you connect a
powered subwoofer for added bass. Yamaha's optional SWK-W16 kit (022SWKW16,
sold separately) can be used to wirelessly connect a powered sub to the
YSP-5600. You won't need to use any connecting wires between the soundbar
speaker and the subwoofer.

- Channel Level: You can adjust the output level of each channel
(Front Right/Left, Front Height Right/Left, Center, Surround Right/Left,
Right/Left, and Subwoofer) on the
soundbar speaker to balance output levels. Adjustable range is -10 to +10.
- Volume Trim: You are able to adjust the input level of each input
jack to compensate for variations in volume. Adjustable from -12 to +12.
- Turn On Volume: The system's volume can be set to come
on at a preset level (1-99) when power is turned on.
- Max Volume: You can set the speaker's maximum volume output level
to 1 through 99.
- Subwoofer Volume You can adjust the soundbar's built-in
subwoofer volume level independently from the speaker's overall volume.
