    Excellent entry-level home theater system, August 3, 2011
    By 
    LizO (Colorado Springs, CO United States) –
    This review is from: Yamaha YHT-395BL Complete 5.1-Channel Home Theater System (Old Version) (Electronics)

    Props to Yamaha for putting out an entry-level system that offers great sound and options within a receiver at a budget price. Some manufacturers skimp on their entry-level or lower priced electronics but Yamaha got this one right and for my needs, they didn’t skimp at all.

    I upgraded from a 20 year old Sony 2 channel system (connected to the TV via composite cables and PC via 3.5 mm to RCA) that was on its last legs. It served me well through the years but with better quality sound through television, DVDs, Blu-Ray discs and even streaming, it seemed like a great time to retire the old system before it gave out completely. Given my budget constraints and living in multiple-family housing, a high end, blow-your-ears-off music and theater/movie sound wasn’t in the cards. Yamaha has a good reputation and reading the reviews on this and other entry-level systems Yamaha has, it was right up my alley.

    This system has not disappointed. What can I say; it has great sound for my needs. I have it set up with 16 gauge speaker wire (the speaker wire you get in the box isn’t suitable for hemming clothing IMO). Connected to it is a Sony Bravia TV, a Sony BDPS380 Blu-Ray/DVD/streaming player which is a great player for the price and my computer via 25 ft 3.5 mm stereo cable. The TV is connected via Toslink optical audio cable and HDMI. Blu-ray/DVD/streaming player connected via HDMI. The living room is roughly 15′ x 14′ and even on lower volumes, this sounds great. Piping the music from my computer to watching DVDs, Blu-Ray and streaming movies/TV, I have absolutely no complaints.

    Oddly enough, the remote is very intuitive for me. I haven’t tried to get the TV and player to accept the remote yet but at this point, it isn’t much of an issue. I went from having four remotes to three and hopefully it will be just the main Yamaha remote with the occasional need to use the other two. Bad remotes net a lower rating from me and this has a decent remote that seems to have been researched and well thought out.

    I don’t listen to the radio at home, but Pandora and my MP3s via the computer sound as good as can be. I am able to convert 2 channel music (which seems to be the case for most MP3 and other audio) to what Yamaha calls “5 Channel Enhancer” so you get a full music experience. Coming from a 2 channel system, it’s pretty cool! I don’t need to use the various sound field presets, though if you like to have interesting ways to listen to your music, those pre-sets are available (Vienna Music Hall, Roxy Theatre, etc). I listen to a variety of music – most everything except rap and hip-hop and all of it sounds great.

    The surround sound for movies and even TV is great. Late nights, though, I keep it at the “5ch Enhancer” setting in order to keep the volume at a respectable level so as not to annoy my neighbors. It’s kind of fun to hear the movies with the various surround sound pre-sets though when I do have it in surround mode, I typically keep it at the “Standard” surround setting.

    I don’t have cable and haven’t since 1995 (on purpose) so I can’t say how well it works with a cable or satellite box but it has more than enough ports to connect external devices and then some. Over-the-air television can be broadcast in 5.1 (depending on the program) and it sounds very good. Being able to combine a fully loaded receiver without other components (amp, equalizer, etc) is also a bonus for those not needing ultra loud and pure sound and for those whose space is limited.

    It’s a great value in my opinion. If you want to plop $1200+ on a system, by all means go for it but if your needs are simple, your budget is constrained and you’re not looking to create a serious home theater/music listening room, it will suit many people’s needs.

    BTW, those that are looking for a home theater with a Blu-Ray/DVD and streaming are not going to get that with this system. This Yamaha system is strictly for sound which I think is the right way to do a home theater, even on a tight budget. This gives you more options and as your TV and other video needs change, this system will stand alone and I suspect will serve for many years. Basic audio hasn’t changed in 30 years except in the realm of added channels (2.1, 5.1, 7.1) and digital input/output. Video seems to be changing at a rapid rate and perhaps has leveled out for now, but a system like this will provide a host of options, I think, that many home theater systems that are video based can’t offer.

    EDIT: Feb 08, 2012 I still stand behind this system as an entry level/budget system for quality and sound. No complaints whatsoever and as far as stereo equipment goes, this has been a great investment for my needs. I still haven’t figured out how to get my Sony products to accept the remote but I really haven’t tried after I read on a Sony support forum that the two don’t marry well on Sony’s end. Which is…

    Great Home Surround System!!!, May 28, 2011
    By 
    This review is from: Yamaha YHT-395BL Complete 5.1-Channel Home Theater System (Old Version) (Electronics)

    I have long been looking for a surround system around this range and decided to go with itsince its previous model the 393BL had one of the best reviews in the mark for its price range.

    I have never owned a surround system before, but I have installed it for several of my friends in the past. I have to say though that even for an amateur though the instructions provided are self explanatory.

    I also decided to mount all 5 speakers on the wall and installed the wires through the attic by droping the wires through the wall. It can be a painful process but well worth it in my personal opinion.
    If you were to have it installed like I did though, I would highly recommend spending an extra buck to get a better wire than the one that the system comes with.
    In my case for a 16x 16 family room I had to use about 120 feet of 16 gauge wire with extra seal protection. I would recommend a 14 gauge if your speakers will be more than 30 feet away from the receiver. Some sellers will recommend a CL2 or CL3 wire, but I ended up using the 16 gauge monster XP that I found better deal on and the performance of the sound rocks. No hickups super crystal clarity for the ability of the speakers. Easy to hear the highs, the lows and the bass.

    Overall I am extremely happy with the sound and the performance of this system. I cannot strech enough though how important it is to use good wires, especially if you were to ever upgrade your speakers to some more expensive ones. Believe me you do not want to go through the wire installation more than once for the same room.

    Personally I am not a sound maniac, but I love quality and professional performance and this system definetely meets my requirements. The receiver had enough inputs for my PS3, the Wii, my HD cable box, the VCR (wife still wants to keep it) and the iPod Dock, yet there is still room for more devices!!!

    If you are looking for a system at this price range do not think twice about it like I did. I live to overanalyze and do my homework before and type of purchase and I am in love with it already!!! Great job Yamaha, always had faith in you.

    Amazing Home Theater, April 28, 2011

    This review is from: Yamaha YHT-395BL Complete 5.1-Channel Home Theater System (Old Version) (Electronics)

    If you’re looking for a great home theater system at an affordable price this is it. I have had no problems passing through all of my 3D content to my TV from this home theater system. There is a ton of control for the audio and even offers automatic and manual lip syncing. If you’re an audio/video nut and you notice lips being off from audio by only the slightest bit then this is the home theater system for you. The active subwoofer is outstanding for its size. Overall, the whole home theater system is a great value and everything you’d expect. Everything you see on the amazon page for this home theater is true as far as specifications.
