Tower Speaker in Black
From the Manufacturer
The Yamaha NS-777 tower speaker is specifically designed for home theater applications. The floor-standing speaker features a three-way bass-reflex design appropriate for main channels that incorporates a pair of 8-inch polymer-injected mica diaphragm (PMD) cone woofers, a 5-inch midrange cone driver, and a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter. For improved imaging, the midrange and tweeter utilize Yamaha's exclusive waveguide horns, which significantly reduce reflected sound and increase the proportion of directly generated sound waves reaching your ears. This compensates for the lack of sound-absorbing materials on the walls of most homes. The result is a clear and precise sense of sound direction and placement that replicates the sound produced in commercial movie theaters.
The NS-777 speaker boasts optimum sound quality by featuring Monster Cable internal wiring among several components, ensuring a clean, clear signal from the crossover network to the speaker driver. To further maintain signal purity, Yamaha provides bi-wiring capability, delivering separate +/- terminals for the woofer(s) and other driver(s). The separation reduces modulation distortion and improves sound quality. In addition, the speaker is magnetically shielded, so you can place it on a TV or video monitor without degrading the picture via stray magnetic fields.
The speaker comes with a matching speaker stand that provides the solid footing necessary for full floor contact, enhanced stability, and minimal vibration resonance. The stand is also an attractive complement to the cabinet. The speaker's performance is enhanced by its solidly constructed elliptical form cabinet (with a high-gloss, black piano finish), which diffracts a minimum of sound. The speaker also features a new grille design and cloth that serves as an attractive and acoustically transparent protective cover for the drivers.

As some others have said, they are a little bit weak on the low end of the frequency range, but that should not be a surprise, as the speaker specs clearly state that they are rated for a frequency range of 30 Hz to 35,000 Hz. The "normal" human hearing range is 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, so these don't reproduce those very low frequencies, between 20-30 Hz. Based on that, I think these speakers are intended to be paired with a good subwoofer. That is what I've done, and the total package works incredibly well. Some listeners will be happy with the sound provided by just these speakers, as there is decent bass response, but if you like very deep, pronounced bass, then add a sub for those lower ranges.
Matching these with a good subwoofer (one with separate frequency/cutover adjustment and output/volume adjustment), and a receiver/amplifier that is capable of driving this setup, will give you an impressive sounding system. For a total speaker investment of around $1000, you will have the equivalent of much higher priced speakers.
I highly recommend these NS-777 speakers.
taken care of in a very timely manner. It used to be BOSE and Pinnacle sounds but I have to say Yamaha has made some big breakthroughs with this set of speakers.
I know this is not Yamaha's top of the line speakers (I am very familiar with the Yammie line and the sound produced at the various higher price points, and no, I don't work for Yamaha, and yes, I've had other brands of AV units and Speakers in my set-up). But at a $248 price point, wow, what an amazing speaker. Here are my thoughts on the actual performance of this speaker:
Please note, my particular set-up is in a room that would be considered small to medium size . . .
The mid-tones are crystal clear. So clear in fact, that I have nothing more to say on this; the mid-tones are exceptionally.
The highs (such as cymbals on a drum set) were SLIGHTLY strong, but after running an auto set-up for the speaker tone and volume adjustment (built into many current Yamaha receivers), the cymbals were much more in line with what is expected in the high tweeters (a natural blend of sound). The end result is that the cymbals are NO longer slightly strong, but properly balanced. I have read other reviews on this product and some people have complained about the same tweeter concern. But I was able to eliminate this issue by simply balancing the tone and volume in the speaker set-up function of my AV unit. An easy thing to do if you own a receiver that has the auto speaker set-up function. And many different brands of quality receivers have this ability! And if you don't, you have ears don't you? Open up the tone and volume setting on your av unit and adjust them. Simple, done. Nough said. The tweeters on this speaker sound great.
The low (bass) end. I had a similar experience on the low end as I did on the high end. The bass was a little weak. But after running the auto speaker set-up, the lows balanced out and now my complete sound, low, mid, and high's, all harmonized nicely. Granted, the bass end on this speaker is not going to thump you into the next room, I'll agree to that. But if you're the type of person who does like to be thumped into the next room, you probably have a subwoofer (or several subwoofers) to accommodate you. And if you don't, you should. But just as an FYI, even if you don't want to be thumped into another room, you should have a subwoofer anyway; subwoofers are not an "extra" thing to get later, they are a necessity, in any sound set-up, and I don't care how much you spend on your other speakers, regardless of the brand.
For those of you who are still skeptical about this speakers tweeter and bass abilities . . . the NS-777 is also bi-amp ready (for those of you that don't know what it means to bi-amp, look it up in your AV manuel)!
At first I used this speaker without biamping. And after tweaking the speakers as described above, they produced very nice sound. However, I then decided to try and see what the difference would be if I used the bi-amp feature. After bi-amping these speakers produced wonderful sound; a very clear natural sound with a reasonable tonal balance between the high and low (tweeter and bass sounds).
If you don't know if your AV unit can support biamping, look in your receiver's manuel to see if it does. But whether you use these speakers with or without bi-amping, the sound it produces is wonderful . . . especially for the price!
Bottom line, at a price tag of anywhere between $250-300 (currently we are in the spring 2011 time period), the Yamaha NS-777 are an exceptional value with fantastic sound. You won't be disappointed. Me thinks anyway . . . but this is all my opinion, right? Let your own ears decide.
Enjoy, whatever you purchase.
