Real 3D Surround Sound Reproduction Realized in a
Single Unit by Digital Surround Projector Technology
The dream 3D surround sound has arrived.
Inside the unit’s front grille are 44 precisely calculated and positioned
speakers. In order to create 7-channel sound beams (Front left/right, Center,
Surround left/right, Height left/right), each of the speakers is controlled by
individual delay time and is driven with its own independent amplifier circuit.
These beams are projected onto the walls and ceiling, to be reflected
accurately to the listening position. This creates the same sound as real wall
and ceiling speakers —not a virtual sound, but real 3D surround sound
reproduction. In addition, the YSP-5600 uses the Surround channel sound
beam for Surround Back, and the Surround channel is phantom merged to
support the equivalent of up to 7.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X
6 array speakers at each end for vertical sound beam
32 array speakers for horizontal sound beam
Dual 11 cm woofers
Incorporates the First YSP to Create a Height Channel
by Using Sound Beams from Specific Array Speakers
Height channel audio playback is realized by placing
six array speakers at each end of the unit (a total of
12). For these array speakers, 28mm diameter units
are used. In order to obtain the maximum sound
beam effect, they are mounted on an angled baffle
and sound beam vertical control is adapted. Sound
field reproduction is just as if real speakers were
mounted on the ceiling, so you get great sound
without the bother of mounting speakers and
stringing wires.
Height Channel Positions Can Be Precisely Adjusted
to Match the Listening Position
Directed Sound Beams Realise Distinct
Height Channel Audio
Dialogue Lift Ensures Proper Dialogue Orientation
For reproduction of the latest surround sound formats such as Dolby Atmos and
DTS:X, the relationship between the listening position and the height channel
locations is very important for faithful reproduction of the sound space. The
YSP-5600 adjusts the angle of the sound beam directed at the ceiling allowing
the height channel position to be matched to the listening position either
manually or automatically. Even if the listening position relative to the display
changes, you’ll get the effect of the height channel for natural 3D surround
The height speakers can be located as close to the listening position as the
center speakers, and their positions and sound quality have a large effect on
the live performance feeling created by multi-dimensional sound. By using
directed beams reflected just once off the ceiling for reproducing the height
channels, the YSP-5600 obtains a sharp sound position and distinct sound,
ensuring realistic reproduction of environmental sounds such as thunder.
You’ll experience the thrill of 3D surround sound that “rains from heaven.”
With many Sound Bars positioned below the TV, especially when the TV is a
widescreen model, dialogue and vocals seem to be coming from below the
people who are talking or singing. To prevent this problem, the YSP-5600
has a Dialogue Lift function (adjustable in three steps) that causes the
reflecting beams from its array speakers to raise the apparent height of the
dialogue to appropriate levels on the screen. You enjoy sounds and images
that are perfectly aligned, just as in a movie theater.

Compatible with the New Formats
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Choose One of Four Listening Modes
to Match Your Scenario
The YSP-5600 supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the latest surround
sound formats that have attracted a lot of attention in the movie industry.
Dolby Atmos is supported by the unit when shipped, while DTS:X will be
supported with a firmware update.
The YSP-5600 is equipped with four listening modes: 3D Surround, which
commands five horizontal beams and two vertical beams to recreate the
equivalent of up to a 7.1.2-channel three-dimensional sound field; Surround,
which uses five horizontal beams to perform normal 5.1-channel surround
playback; Stereo, which uses a special vertical beam speaker
as a tweeter to produce high sound quality
2-channel stereo from audio sources; and
Target, which aims monaural speech clearly to
a precise location in the room. In 3D Surround
mode you can optionally select CINEMA DSP
3D Mode, while in Surround mode you can
optionally select CINEMA DSP, providing a
wider variety of sound field programs.
Supports Yamaha’s Own CINEMA DSP 3D Mode
Yamaha’s original CINEMA DSP 3D Mode adds
an expansive height direction to the sound field,
creating a rich surround 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
Intellibeam Automates the Height Channel Settings
The YSP-5600 employs beam optimization and sound optimization
features with the aid of the supplied IntelliBeam microphone, allowing
you to avoid troublesome listening-based setup and achieve highly
accurate sound adjustments that best match your listening environment.
Together, these two features are called
IntelliBeam. The positions of the sound beams
directed at the ceiling can also be automatically
set. The YSP-5600 can thus reproduce the live
music ambience of a variety of rooms.
