Good Speakers Are Important for Good Home Cinema.
Main Speakers
Required to handle most of the sound
output, these speakers require excellent
sensitivity, frequency response and
dynamic range.
Rear Speakers
The quality of the surround sound
experience depends on the quality of the
rear speakers. Yamaha ensures that they
perform up to high standards.
Centre Speaker
The centre speaker delivers most of the
dialogue, so high clarity output is vital to
movie enjoyment.
Rear Centre Speakers

speaker for reproducing this channel in
Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES 6.1-channel

formats.

ideal for use in digital home cinema
systems.

High Sound Quality Speakers
5 Satellite Speakers and 1 Center Speaker
Subwoofer
High Performance Dual 5cm (2”) Full-Range Drivers
These speakers use high quality parts to achieve excellent
performance. They have 45mm (1-3/4”) dual ferrite magnets with
shielded cases for maximum power and copper center pole caps
for low distortion. Kapton bobbins contribute to high S/N ratio.
Unwanted vibrations are prevented by a heavy-duty steel frame
and a parallel-surface cabinet design. Even the wiring is an antiresonance type.
Advanced YST for Powerful Bass Response
Advanced Yamaha Active Servo
Technology (Advanced YST) is a
unique system in which the speaker
and amplifier work together to cancel out impedance so the
speaker unit has a perfectly linear motion. Advanced YST helps to
ensure the highest levels of sound pressure and overall
performance.
