Techincally YSP 4300 of coz is better but much more expensive.

If money no a issue of course take 4300 but if your living room is not that big, YSP 2500 could be powerful enough to drive the sound around.

Just my 2 cents worth :)

Hi guys,

My wife has mandated that she does not want the TV to be on when the kid is in the living room, however I would like to have the sound turned on (I am a fan of Taiwanese political debates). My feed is coming from an Android set-top box (which comes with HDMI and RCA and with no optical out).

If I were to buy a soundbar, what are the inputs I need to have in order to achieve the above? i.e. TV turned off (or TV turned on but display turned off - is it possible?) but sound is available.

Thanks for any heads-up.

I was looking at the Yamaha YSP-2500, Denon Heos HomeCinema & the Naim Mu-So (or Mu-So QB).

With that budget, go for the YSP-5600. It's $2600.

For Yamaha YSP2500, is it price controlled? Any cheaper price than $1399?

Also due to dimensions in living room my left side is a balcony glass 1.5m away and my right side is the main door which is like 8.5m away... do you think i will get the surround sound effect?

Tested lotr part 3 last night... Didn't dare to on too loud since I only got home at 10+..

Small bit when frodo was on Mount doom. The sound effects wise I'm satisfied. Gives a clear sense of direction where the actions are. The eagles appearing... Tower collapsing etc

This is complicated, depends on your actual layout and ultimately what is more impt.

Is like last time DD vs DTS, one system tend to have more bass the other had better surround...something like that; in very general terms :O

I rather u save up and wait for price to drop. 1600 got no sub I think

It always fluctuate.

Well YSP 1600 does not comes with subwoofer but it has an output for one,that my understanding. We can get other active sub i guess. for the current promo @$799, it is relatively good deal. test the sound effect, i think this is good enuff for my new hse to come. was thinking to get YSP 2500 initially.
