Review – 5.1 Yamaha YHT1840 high-quality home cinema system
The Yamaha YHT1840 offers speakers and an ideal AV receiver for a fantastic home theater introduction.
Easy home theater sound
Connect your TV, Blu-ray/DVD player and game console to Yamaha YHT1840 and you’re ready for the full cinematic experience. With built-in Dolby and DTS digital processors, Yamaha YHT1840 activates sound effects throughout the room for a real feeling of “being there”.” The sound is processed by 192/24-bit Burr Brown DAC on each channel for powerful dynamics that will keep you on the edge of your seat! The music is just as well maintained as the quality components of the amplifier for a more detailed and natural sound.
Totally addictive sound
The sound bars are great, but there’s nothing that can beat the sound of a separate AV system. With five audio channels from a discreet amplifier, Yamaha YHT1840 surrounds you with a rich, perfect low-distortion sound, just like in cinema. The amplifier also offers a comfortable 70 watts per channel, which means you can cope with even the most powerful sound locker strokes. There is also a “Low Extra” function. This gives a deeper and richer bass response and works great with small speakers and lower volume levels.
Ready for the latest UHD sources
To ensure full compatibility with the exciting new UHD Blu-ray format, all HDMI sockets support HDR Video, Hybrid Log-Gamma and BT.2020. Four inputs allow you to connect a Blu-ray, game console, set-top box and PC, enough for an entire home theater system.
Another advantage of going for separate AVs is the inclusion of powerful surround sound processing. In addition to the Full HD audio decoding of the Dolby and DTS formats, Yamaha YHT1840 offers the famous Surround DSP Yamaha programs. With 17 modes from the Roxy Theatre to a concert hall in Munich, Yamaha’s system offers a variety of acoustic settings for a unique sound. In addition, four SCENE selections ensure you always have the best solution when watching movies or listening to music.
Elegant curved speakers
With an eye to the coolest interior enhancement, satellite speakers are designed to be discreet. Thin enough to be mounted on the wall through its hole-in-the-key openings, they also benefit from a tapered back panel and smooth edges. The central speaker is a dedicated design with increased sensitivity and sharp dialogue and is also easily mounted on the wall. The subwoofer provides the bass with a natural and powerful sound that prevents the bass ‘boom’.Photo:Yamaha
