The Downside
If you are looking for a reference surround system, this product isn’t for you.  The surround effects aren’t as dynamic as you would get with a dedicated 7.1 speaker system and a powerful surround receiver. You just can’t cheat physics, but Yamaha comes close to doing so in a way that is truly impressive.

The YSP-4000 is also fairly heavy, so if you plan to hang it on the wall, do yourself a favor and make sure you find some solid studs for screwing in the mounting bracket. Otherwise, you will be calling in a sheetrock contractor to rebuild your wall.

Conclusion
I love this thing. It’s so simple that even the most non-technical of people can figure out how to use it. It’s also just so damn convenient that you will find yourself listening to more music than you ever imagined, which is a compliment traditionally reserved for the most lofty audiophile products, with a price tag to match. Yamaha should be proud of how well the YSP reproduces music from such a slim and relevant product.

The Yamaha YSP-4000’s uncluttered, elegant style will go with any décor.  It offers real surround options that actually work without having to snake speaker wires through walls or under carpeting. So if you are looking for a huge upgrade over your standard TV speakers with surround capabilities and the ability to listen to FM, XM, MP3s and switch multiple video sources, you need to take a long hard listen to the Yamaha YSP-4000. It’s one hell of a performer.
