YAMAHA YSP 1100 (Connecting two, together)

by joeypires / November 9, 2007 9:21 AM PST

Hello,

My girlfriend and I are moving in together and we both own the Yamaha YSP-1100 projector (sound bar). The sound quality is great from each unit and we'd like to hook both of them up together (one in front of the TV and the other behind the sofa).

Is this possible? I imagine it is, but would be have to get a "receiver" to make this happen?

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Basically you'll need a receiver as amplifier with some

power. The internal TV power to speaker is usaully embarrassingly puny. It can't handle the extra load. The receiver need not be very expensive. Great values in last years models are fine. They just don't have the newest HDMI 1.3a connectivity. Expect year old or so models to be had for half original price.

the yamaha YSP is a sound projector, meaning it emulates a 5.1 system in a single chassis. Hooking two of these together, while it may sound like a good idea, is not. It is going to sound very very odd, and in this case, where such precision tuned speaker aiming is involved, more speakers are not better. Technically, yes I imagine you could hook two of these together, but it would immediately reduce the sound quality one of these provides for you. My recommendation is that you use one in the living room, and the other in the bedroom. There is literally no advantage to hooking both up together, so why not put the amazing capabilities of the YSP in two rooms instead of one.

EVEN AS MUCH AS I DON'T CARE FOR MULTI-CHANNEL SPEAKERS (same chassis)

wow that would sound strange
by gabereyes / November 11, 2007 1:45 PM PST

that would be like hooking two 5.1 surround systems in two directions and playing the same things, the person talking on the screen would be in front of you and behind you, and if a plane went by it would be going in two directions I think I would get motion sickness.

I can see how it would sound like a good idea, but they are just not made to do so sorry and good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
