From the Manufacturer
The Yamaha YHT-695 5.1-Channel Complete Home Theater System is a powerful home theater system for Blu-ray players and flat panel displays, featuring 4-in/1-out HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel compatibility, an improved on-screen GUI, YPAO sound optimization, iPod/iPhone and Bluetooth compatibility, HD Audio with CINEMA DSP compatibility, and SCENE function.
This package includes a Yamaha RX-V471 105-watt audio/video receiver, a Yamaha NS-AP6500M/EBL 5-channel speaker package, and a powerful Yamaha YST-SW216 10" 100-watt subwoofer.
USB Digital Connection for iPhone and iPod on the Front Panel
A USB port on the front panel provides convenient connection for your iPhone/iPod, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPhone/iPod is transmitted directly to the AV Receiver, noise interference is minimized and sound quality is iPhone/iPod much better.
On-Screen GUI (Graphical User Interface)
This clean and simple interface makes setup and other operations extremely easy. The on-screen display can show album art, provides a choice of various languages and is visible over 3D images.
1080p-Compatible HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel
Improve your home cinema experience with 100 watts per channel of powerful 5.1-channel surround sound, with the latest HD Audio format decoding: Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio. The 1080p-compatible HDMI (4 in/1 out) supports Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz Refresh Rate and Auto Lip-Sync compensation, as well as the latest HDMI features like 3D and Audio Return Channel.
CINEMA DSP Digital for Enhanced Surround Realism
Conventional multi-channel audio reproduction systems base their sound on Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, using matrix and steering technologies to create surround sound effects. Yamaha CINEMA DSP is much more advanced, actually creating richly realized independent sound fields that envelop you in an unmatched surround sound experience. With dialogue, music and effects ideally located in these separate sound fields, you will hear sound with accurate placement, smooth movement, exceptional clarity and richness, and startlingly realistic presence. It will seem as if the walls of your room have disappeared and you are in the middle of your own immense theater.
SILENT CINEMA and Virtual CINEMA DSP
SILENT CINEMA, a variation of Yamaha's CINEMA DSP technology, makes it possible to listen in private to movies and other multi-channel sources for hours without listening fatigue. Virtual CINEMA DSP lets you enjoy the effects of CINEMA DSP surround sound without using surround speakers (handy for use in custom installations where some rooms don't have surround speakers). It can be used with the front / center / presence speakers or even with just the two front left and right speakers.
Adaptive DRC (Dynamic Range Control)
Yamaha's Adaptive DRC technology automatically adjusts the dynamic range of the sound according to the volume that is selected. Adaptive DRC refines the dynamic range parameters to make low volume sounds easier to hear (narrower dynamic range) while retaining the massiveness felt during high volume (wider dynamic range). And because our ears lose sensitivity to low and high sounds as volume decreases, it continually adjusts these frequency ranges according to the volume and to the input signal level.
Compressed Music Enhancer Refreshes Your Music
Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
SCENE: A New Level of Operating Ease
Four SCENE buttons make operating the receiver easier than ever. They are initially set to default settings for DVD Viewing, Disc Listening, TV Viewing and Radio Listening. Push a SCENE button to automatically launch play of the preset source. Other SCENE settings are also available, such as iPod Listening, XM Listening, TV Sports Viewing and Action Game Playing. Browse and select the settings quickly accomplished by rotating the Input knob and watching the on-screen display. The settings can be selected for one-time use, or they can replace the original default settings. You can even change the SCENE names for convenience.
YPAO Sound Optimization
YPAO sound optimization for automatic speaker setup lets you set up your surround sound speakers simply and easily. An included microphone designed for YPAO will help you set up your speakers for optimal performance, no matter the room.
Expand Your Yamaha System with Convenient Connectivity
The optional YDS-12 Universal Dock lets you connect your iPod or iPhone to the receiver. And the YDS-12 is "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you can get the most out of your iPhone music library with zero hassles.
The optional YID-W10 Wireless Dock System for iPod/iPhone ensures that you enjoy maximum sound quality and no lip sync (AV matching) problems.
The optional YBA-10 Bluetooth Wireless Audio Receiver docks to the receiver and supports A2DP stereo audio streaming, so users can enjoy music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, Windows PCs, and Macs.

Cheap low gauge speaker wire
I decided to go with this system, because it was cheaper, than buying a receiver separately, then adding speakers by a good chunk of change. Overall, Yamaha put a good package together. This is a large system, so two people are needed to move it into your home. In my case, I took it in piece by piece to the living room. As far unpacking it, that is easy enough. Everything seemed to be well packed and there was no damage. The components feel like Yamaha's living up to their reputation of good quality.
All of the speakers are very large. Don't expect to see little cube shaped rear speakers. They are considerably larger. The center channel I have also found to be rather huge in proportions. Same goes for the front right and left speakers. They are more like bookshelf speakers. At any rate, they all seem to feel solid and well made. The 10" sub provided seems to provide good, solid low range. I personally don't like the side firing style of the sub as much as the 10" PSW10 Polk Audio sub I gave to some family members, but I can live with it. The sub is has a volume nob on that back, and speaker terminals. You also get with the system a cable to go from the sub to the receiver, plus a good amount of cheap low gauge speaker wire. I guess its alright, but anyone picky about wire may want to find something heavier duty.Read more ›
-Super loud and clear.
-Easy to set-up.
-Cheap, thin speaker wire.
This product is levels above the Bose® Lifestyle® T20 home theater system--Black That I purchased from Best buy prior to buying this. Was not impressed with the Bose for the money. This Yamaha system sounds better, gets louder than the Bose. Highly recommend!!
RCA AH14100SN 100 Ft. 14-Gauge Speaker Wire
Setting it up is easy enough except, of course, for routing the wires to the surround sound. (I found that I needed more than the 100 ft of speaker wire provided.) Calibrating is blissfully easy. Just plug in the provided mic and step through the on-screen selections (on the attached HDTV screen). It makes all of the required adjustments for the obstructions and whatnot around the speaker placements.
We watched a couple of movies and the sound is just like the movie theater. Just think of the money we'll save not going out to the movies -- the system will pay for itself.
Finally, I'll add that this system should not be used like that in any house with adjoining walls. I live in a single family residence. Even then, when my sons were playing some first-person-shooter game, I asked them to close the windows. It all just sounds too real and I do not want to have the police on my doorstep with guns drawn.
Is there better out there? I'm sure, but for the money this unit is everything and more I could expect from it. It excels with TV and movies, and is very good with music. It is very easy to plug your ipod into the USB port and you can control it from the TV screen with the remote. The music enhancer helps mp3's become fuller, and listening in 5 channel stereo is a real joy. The sound is very good, but I wouldn't say its GREAT. The sub-woofer seems best for movie type booms, and for TV and is just middle of the road for music, but make no mistake, it still sounds very good. I didn't deduct for this because I believe the Sub-woofer is doing perfectly what it is designed for, home theater.
I feel like for the money I got more than what I payed for and Yamaha really delivered on this package. When you start looking at just buying a receiver, and then adding speakers, you find out quickly how expensive that can become. Yamaha lets you have it all for a moderate price point here, above average music listening, and excellent movie and TV watching. Someday I may upgrade the speakers, but I doubt it unless they fail. It is a pretty nice package of speakers overall.Read more ›
