Product description

Product Description

The new YSP-4000 Digital Sound Projector offers versatile new features such as, 1080p-compatible HDMI, analog video to HDMI digital video up-conversion, and component/composite inputs. Other features include: iPod and XM HD surround compatibility, built-in FM tuner, RS-232C for custom installation and a wide variety of beam settings, including My Surround Beam, for a true multi-channel surround sound experience from a single component. The YSP-4000 applies the Digital Sound Projector technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by focusing it through multiple beams. The center channel sound is heard directly, while sounds from other channels are heard after reflecting off walls. The result is true multi-channel surround sound that sounds just like a multi-speaker system ¿ but without the need for extra speakers! As amazing as it seems, the YSP-4000 can actually deliver multi-channel sound that surrounds listeners the same way that sound from front, center and rear speakers does. DVD movies and other digital sources sound just the way they are supposed to. Dolby Pro Logic II is included, so even 2-channel TV's sound can be heard in true multi-channel surround. Its elegant space-saving design avoids the need of numerous speakers and cables. It can be wall mounted or placed on a shelf or rack. The YSP-4000 has a powerful and efficient digital amplifier built in. It powers the 40 beam drivers at 2W each and the two woofers at 20W each, for a total of 120W of power. There is no need for the customer to purchase an additional amplifier or receiver.

True Multi-Channel Surround Sound from All Sources, Including TV

As amazing as it seems, the YSP-4000 can actually deliver multi-channel sound that surrounds listeners the same way that sound from front, center and rear speakers does. DVD movies and other digital sources sound just the way they are supposed to. Dolby Pro Logic II is included, so even 2-channel TV sound can be heard in true multi-channel surround.

Powerful Built-In Digital Amplifier

The YSP-4000 has a powerful and efficient digital amplifier built in. It powers the 40 beam drivers at 2W each and the two woofers at 20W each, for a total of 120W of power. There is no need to purchase an additional amplifier or receiver.

Wide Variety of Beam Settings

The My Surround mode provides surround sound without reflecting the beams off the walls. It is handy for rooms where for some reason the walls can not be used well and delivers a good surround effect when listeners are close to the unit. My Surround uses a combination of DiMagic and Yamaha technology. The My Beam setting focuses the sound at a specific listening position, so even in noisysurroundings you can hear dialogue and other sounds clearly. Sonic sensor means that My Beam can be selected with the remote control from almost any angle. There are also five other selectable beam settings: 5 Beam, 3 Beam, 3 Beam + Stereo, and 2-channel Stereo and 5-channel Stereo that outputs stereo sources from all of the 5-channel beams, providing a more expansive sound field.

IntelliBeam Automated System Calibration

This Yamaha exclusive feature ensures optimum multi-channel sound reproduction with accurate image location. By monitoring and analyzing the sound with the microphone included with the YSP-4000, IntelliBeam automatically sets the best beam angles, while optimizing the level and frequency response of each beam. It also offers Direct Start function via remote unit. This makes initial setup both extremely simple and acoustically perfect.

Speaking of acoustically perfect, the YSP-4000 applies the sophisticated Digital Sound Projector technology to precisely control the orientation of the sound by focusing it through multiple beams. The center channel sound is heard directly, while sounds from other channels are heard after reflecting off walls. The result is true multi-channel surround sound that sounds just like a multi-speaker system – but without the need for extra speakers.


The YSP-4000 is an elegant statement of the latest technology
Analog Video to HDMI Digital Video Upconverion

The YSP-4000 provides upconversion of video composite and component signals to HDMI. The signal can then be output via a single HDMI cable to a monitor for enjoying high-definition video quality. The output supports 1080p/24Hz and 60Hz video signals, so they can be throughput to a monitor for enjoying high definition video quality.

The YSP-4000 provides analog video-upscaling of composite 480i signals and of component 480i or 480p signals to HDMI 1080i/720p resolutions for optimal viewing on high-definition displays. It uses advanced processing including video encoding/decoding ICs from Analog Devices and a TBC (Time Base Corrector) to restore degraded video signals for totally distortion-free viewing.

Great with Your Portable Music Collection

A mini jack on the front panel makes it convenient to connect most any portable audio player on the market. An optional YDS-10 Universal Dock lets you connect your iPod to the YSP-4000. You can listen to your iPod music and watch iPod images and movies on your monitor via the YSP-4000. You can also operate your iPod via the YSP-4000’s remote unit with the On-Screen Display and charge your iPod. The YDS-10 dock works with iPod nano, iPod mini, and the 4th and 5th generations of iPod (Click Wheel).
