Yamaha YHT1840 (Black) 5.1 Package System inc Speakers – £299 @ Richersounds
Home cinema sound made easy
Connect your TV, Blu-ray/DVD player and games console to the Yamaha YHT1840 and you’re ready for the full cinema experience. With built-in Dolby and DTS digital processors, the YHT1810 fires out sound effects around the room for a real sense of ‘being there’. Sound is processed by192/24-bit Burr Brown DACs on each channel for powerful dynamics that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat! Music is equally well looked after as the amp quality components for a more detailed and natural sound.
Fully immersive sound
Soundbars are great but there’s nothing that can beat the sound of a separates AV system. With five channels of sound from a discrete amplifier, the YHT1840 surrounds you in rich, low distortion sound – just like at the cinema. The amplifier also delivers a handy 70 watts per channel, meaning it can cope with even the punchiest-sounding blockbusters. There’s also an ‘Extra Bass’ function. This gives a deeper, richer bass response and works really well with small speakers and at lower volume levels.
Ready for the latest UHD sources
For full compatibility with the exciting new UHD Blu-ray format, all the HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR Video including Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020. Four inputs let you connect up a Blu-ray, games console, set-top box and PC – enough for an entire home cinema system.
Another advantage of going for AV separates is the inclusion of powerful surround sound processing. As well as full HD audio decoding of both Dolby and DTS formats, the YHT1840 features Yamaha’s famous DSP Surround programs. With 17 modes from The Roxy Theatre to a concert Hall in Munich, the Yamaha system gives a variety of acoustic settings for a unique sound. Added to this, four SCENE selections ensure that you always have the best setting when watching films or listening to music.
Sleek curved speakers
With an eye to enhancing the coolest of interiors, the satellite speakers have been designed to be unobtrusive. Slim enough to be wall mounted via their keyhole openings, they also benefit from a tapering rear panel and smooth edges. The centre speaker is a dedicated design with improved sensitivity and crisp dialogue and is also easily wall mounted. The subwoofer gives the bass a natural, powerful sound that avoids bass ‘boom’.
