I have mentioned a few days back about Yamaha YSP-800 surround sound simulator. Now Golem.de has a mmore detailed report on it. YSP-800 has 21 speakers versus 42 for its YSP-1 and will not provide as good bass as the bigger model thus it is suggested to use a subwoofer with the sound projector. Its output is rated at 85 Watt compared to 120 for YSP-1. The speaker features so-called "Night Listening Enhancer" that despite low volume keeps the conversation clear. Yamaha YSP-800 supports Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS as well as DTS:Neo 6, has optical and coaxial inputs and will be shipped in August ( which is now ) with suggested price of 699 EUR or about US $857.
Just as a comparison, YSP-800 can be owned for US $1299 at Amazon.
