Yamaha YSP-1

Sound + Image - - Second Decade -

Yamaha didn’t in­vent the sound­bar — Al­tec-Lans­ing and ZVox both have claims in that re­gard, and of course Yamaha had sound­bars be­fore the YSP-1. But this was dif­fer­ent — a 42-driver de­sign un­der soft­ware con­trol that al­lowed man­age­ment of sound di­rec­tion, with these ‘beams’ de­liv­er­ing big wide movie sound and even achiev­ing sur­round ef­fects when given the right room shape. Hence they aptly re­ferred to this (and still to its de­scen­dents) as a ‘Dig­i­tal Sound Pro­jec­tor’.
