Yamaha YSP-5600

By providing Dolby Atmos support (and DTS:X via a future firmware update), 4K-capable HDMI connectivity and automated room EQ, the gorgeously styled YSP-5600 is a fully-featured soundbar. No fewer than 46 drivers behind its robust black metal mesh are used for directing soundbeams to create full 7.1.2 audio, delivering a layered, three-dimensional soundfield that is unbelievably huge. It makes every movie an engrossing experience, and as part of Yamaha’s MusicCast multiroom system, it can be used to stream music and TV audio throughout the house. Calling this just a soundbar is perhaps unfair on the rest of the field – the YSP-5600 has a unique set of skills that make it a class apart.
