5.0 out of 5 stars Best bang for your buck..., November 10, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System (Electronics)
For the price I didn't expect much from these speakers, and when I got them they definitely exceeded my expectations. I have always been a fan of Yamaha audio equipment and when I was looking for a decent (cheap) set of 5.1 speakers for my Onkyo SR606 I came across this set and thought I'd give them a try. Much to my pleasure they work great! I am only using 3.1 right now but the sound is far superior to any pre-packaged HTS that I have looked at.

PROS - Price, quality of build, sound quality
CONS - plastic casing/style (not the greatest for displaying around your house) This is a very minor con!

Hi K.Labarre,
I am planning to get this YAMAHA NS-SP1800 unit but I want to be sure of something.

At the same time I am getting a Panasonic Blu-ray player, so I want to know how will I connect the Yamaha to the DB player? Do I need to buy a receiver also or I can just connect it directly to the BD player?

Thanks in advanced.

Unless the Blu-ray player has a built in AV receiver, you will need to buy a receiver.

Are these speakers completely wireless? and how do they hook up to a dvd/blu ray unit?

These speakers are a wired 5.1 set and would need a receiver in order to be integrated into a home theater setup.

Update: I have used these for 2 years now and am still enjoying great home theater sound with no problems!

What's the wattage on these things?

Also: can this package be integrated in a 7.2 surround sound receiver? I don't need rear speakers, there's barely enough room in my habitat for the 5.1...I'd get just a 5.1 receiver, but there's not very many high quality ones in my price range that can handle an average (100 watt) speaker.
