Soundbars

Yamaha YSP-5100

By far the best virtual surround solution we've come across

Home cinema amplifiers

Yamaha RX-V667

The RX-V667 is a first-class piece of kit, with a distinctive sonic presentation, but the competition is fierce

Micro and style systems

Yamaha MCR-140

The MCR-140 is a versatile micro featuring Yamaha's AirWired wireless streaming technology

Blu-ray players

Yamaha BP-S1065

In its own right this is a great Blu-ray player, but we simply can't recommend it at such an exorbitant price

Hi-fi speakers

Yamaha MSP-7

These wonderfully built and finished Yamahas are enjoyable enough, but their near total lack of rhythm will hinder most

Soundbars

Yamaha YHT-S400

A mixture of both soundbar and receiver, this accomplished Yamaha delivers high-quality sound with plenty of presence and focus

Blu-ray players

Yamaha BD-S1900

We don't want to be too hard on this budget Yamaha, but cheaper rivals offer more features and greater prowess

Home cinema amplifiers

Yamaha RX-V2065

A gifted multichannel amplifier, but it lacks the spark of the class leaders at this price point

Subwoofers

Yamaha NS-SW700

This sub may be a touch bass-light, but otherwise it does a fine job

Soundbars

Yamaha YSP-4100

The YSP-4100 is a sophisticated, modern and convincing attempt to produce surround sound from one box
