3 Reviews for Yamaha YHT-497 Home Theater System (5.1 Speakers, 600 Watts)26/08/2012There's seemingly infinite choices of brands and setups for stereos or really any electronics product out there. I chose Yamaha because they were a brand that I know to be leaders in the sound industry. I have a Yamaha acoustic guitar that is really nice, I've heard nice things about their electronic products like this stereo, and hell even Lexus recruited Yamaha to tune the exhaust note on their supercar, the LFA.
About what you're getting - the stereo receiver and the subwoofer are heavy and solid, the speakers, not so much. At least not on the heavy end. The construction appears top notch. It's an attractive system. All the speakers have a little gloss to them. As I said, the satellite speakers (2 front, 2 rear, 1 center) are very light, and very small for that matter. They sound very good nonetheless.
It's a really nice system for watching movies, but maybe not quite as nice for music. The speakers are just too small. If you like to really pump up your music,...01/11/2012There are so many choices when it comes to surround sound systems. I went with Yamaha because they have a great record of producing really quality speakers and amps. That is exactly what I got with this product. The amp is great, much better than cheaper systems, the speakers sound very nice, they produce excellent mid and high range sound. The subwoofer is perfectly adequate and rounds out the system very well. There are plenty of HDMI connections to plug in your peripherals. You will need to buy extra speaker wire if you have a large space. I have a small living room and I still needed more. The speaker wire they include is standard and is pretty low end but gets the job done if you don't want to cough up the money for pricy thick cables. I used it and everything sounds great. The automatic setup and speaker calibration is very easy to do and balances the system nicely. For the price this a really great little system. The piano black is very sharp looking as well. I noticed...26/10/2012I'm not an audiophile, nor am I a serious home theater nut, so I'll keep my review short on nitty technical details. I selected the Yamaha YHT-497 home theater system to complement a newly finished family theater room in our basement. The primary factors in my decision were completeness of the system, user and technical reviews from around the web (where you can find an abundance of technical details), ease of setup, and perceived value. The YHT-497 scored well in all respects. Setup was a snap. I didn't bother with the included speaker wire, as the theater room was pre-wired. I attached all the speakers and the sub-woofer as directed in the easy-to-follow installation guide, and it fired right up. The sound is excellent to my untrained ears, with good bass, good surround, and a number of cool effects to choose from. The surround sound auto-calibration feature is nice and easy as well. Finally, I appreciate the on-screen display, which makes navigating through the more...
