Yamahas Digital Sound Projector Wins Big at CES 2005

LAS VEGAS, NV (January 21, 2005)–The YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector from Yamaha Electronics Corporation, the leader in digital audio and video technology designs, was named G4TechTV’s “Best of CES” in the Audio & Video Essentials category at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 7. Later, the same groundbreaking product took the tech network’s top CES honor, Best of Show. The YSP-1 is a single source multi-channel surround-sound speaker system that features an array of 42 drivers driven by digital amplifiers with steering logic to deliver high-quality surround-sound, ideal for flat panel plasma displays in home theater installations. The Yamaha YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector also won the Popular Mechanics Best of CES Editor’s Choice Award for innovation and was a finalist in CNET’s Next Big Thing Awards at CES.

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. A variety of customization modes ensure that the surround sound is optimized for all types of conditions.

Yamaha employs Digital Sound Projector Technology to provide holographic surround sound from a single flat panel, which forms a multi-channel sound beam to achieved precise control of the delay characteristics of multiple speakers. The YSP-1 projects flat wave fronts of sound and appear to listeners to be located at different points on the panel or via reflections off walls at different points in the room.

An elegant design makes the Yamaha Digital Sound Projector an ideal match for flat panel displays. Naturally, as a single unit, additional speakers and wiring are not necessary. As a result, the YSP-1 is an excellent solution for enthusiasts that opt to build a home theater system around a large flat-screen TV and desire a neat, uncluttered, unobtrusive system to match the interior of a room. The YSP-1 will appeal to a variety of users including first-time home theater system buyers.

Other features include Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro Logic II compatibility, On-Screen Display, Night Listening Mode, and three memory locations for storing particular settings. The YSP-1 easily connects to existing set ups via two optical inputs, one coaxial digital input, two analog inputs, there is a subwoofer output.
