The YSP-1 delivers “astounding audio oomph ” as it grabs G4Tech TV’s ‘Best of CES’ Award
LAS VEGAS, NV (January 7, 2005)–G4techTV has named Yamaha as the winner of the Audio and Video Essentials category and Best of Show for its Digital Sound Projector (YSP-1) at the “Best of CES” Awards. G4techTV’s fifth annual “Best of CES” Awards took place at the 2005 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector is a groundbreaking single source multi-channel surround sound speaker system. Ahead of its time, this innovative compact system applies sophisticated Digital Sound Projector technology to control the orientation of the sound from its speakers by focusing it into beams. The stylish slim, wall-mountable unit uses a 40-driver, dual woofer system to achieve a high-quality five-channel surround sound performance for movies, music, digital audio, satellite TV, cable TV or other multi-channel sources. The YSP-1 is designed for a variety of room configurations; sound can be directed and reflected off the walls, which provides the listener true surround sound. For optimal performance the Digital Sound Projector should be positioned in the front of the room in the center or in the corners.
An established panel of judges including editors from Maxim, FHM, Stuff, Men’s Health, PC World, Sync Magazine and IGN, along with G4techTV product experts, chose the best and the brightest from more than 5,000 new products that made their debut at the 2005 International CES. The competition was only open to exhibitors at the show.
“The competition was fierce this year,” commented Andrew Hawn, G4techTV’s Product Lab Director and coordinator of the contest. “The level of innovation and caliber of products submitted blew our judges away and we think consumers will agree that the twelve products chosen as winners are truly the Best of CES.”
The Best of Show recognizes the top product at CES as chosen by G4techTV judges. The Yamaha Digital Sound Projector was chosen as the best of all winners from each respective category and outshined products from Sony, Pioneer and Creative.
Winners in each category were selected based on their innovative appeal, usability, usefulness and value. In addition to the 12 category winners, a single product was honored as Best in Show.
