I saw that it costs 800 pounds in the UK, and has gotten decent reviews in Japan. Anyone know anything about a US release date and price>?

Hey John,, for future reference you might want to be more specific with your thread titles,,,,, just having "YSP-2200" as you thread title throw's people off,,, we dont know if your giving us information, asking a question,, or what.

A better thread title would have been,, "YSP-2200, does anybody know a release date ?",,,,,, the more specific you are in a thread title the better the feedback and replys will be.

Just a friendly heads-up about thread titles.

Hey Nenito

How sure are you of that release date ?

I have been searching for a release date and even emailed Yamaha and have not found a release date yet.

Cheers

Hey Nenito,,,,, thanks for the info and glad to hear its coming out soon,,,, and your right, I have been only reading the english sites.

Odd though, that with the release so close its not even mentioned on the US Yamaha website ???

I have been keeping an eye out for the YSP-2200 (looking at replacing my Niro 1.1 Reference). A few days ago it showed up for sale at Full Compass, though it is unclear if it actually has them in stock. I am really tempted to place an order and find out when the estimated ship date is.

Hey Lgerbarg,, thanks for the heads-up on Full Compass.

I called them and they said/claimed that it would take 9 days for them to get it from the time of my order and then they would ship it out to me right after they received it,,,,,, 15% restocking fee and buyer pays return shipping if not happy with it.

Humm,, I wonder if they can get it that quick and if they are a reputable seller,,, very tempting but that restocking fee and shipping charges do give me cause for concern,,,, while I do have high hopes for this new Yamaha,,,, the S400 I purchased a while back ago was not impressive at all.

I would rather buy localy or from an online seller that does not charge restocking fee's.

Cheers

Wow, looks like the YSP-2200 can do just about everything (both TrueHD and DTS HD-MA). I was just about to pull the trigger on the CT350 too. Still might considering the price difference between the two but would LOVE to have the 2200 at least reviewed (in English ) if not already out.

With the release of the 2200 so close I wouldnt even consider getting the CT-350,,,, on paper and in pictures the 2200 looks like it might be way better than the 350 and even better than my much loved JVC BA1.

Yea,, there is a price difference,, but I would rather pay more if it was justifed with the sound quality.

As far as a review in english,,,, rest assured that the moment the 2200 is released I will be buying one and I will make sure to post a little review here and a comparison of it against my JVC and my recently returned CT-350.

Cheers

Yeah, guys. I'm totally holding out for this soundbar. The 4100 is just too much for my budget and the 2200 will probably suit me just fine.

Davyo, I'm with you. Restocking fees are a surefire me away from a business.

Bastard! I had made up my mind to pick up the 350 tonight but now you've got me second guessing and going in circles again! lol

I totally hear what you are saying, but when I get fixated on getting something, I want it ASAP.

Is the 2200 release date still mid-late Dec? I can hold out for that. *cross fingers*

Well just think how bad you will feel when your reading my review later this month and Im talking about how much the YSP-2200 blows the Sony 350 away,,,, ( at least Im hopping thats the case).

I would totaly wait,,,,, now,, would be the worst time to buy a Sony CT,,, unless money is the deciding factor as the YSP is priced higher than the Sony CT's.

For me,, I will pay the extra money if its worth it,,,,,, but the YSP is going to have to beat out my much loved JVC BA1 to justifie the spending of the extra cash,,, not to mention JVC has a new soundbar coming out very soon as well,,, at least thats what I was told when I talked to JVC a few weeks ago.

800 pounds is what... like $1200 - $1300 dollars. That's about 4-5x more than the CT-350! Thats a lot of "extra" cash for us budget minded folks.

$800 not £800 Still, that's almost three CT-350s. The thing better be awesome for that price and I have to wonder how well it does when you don't have a "proper" configuration of walls for it to bounce off.

I'm saving right now to get one! I've been waiting on something that is semi-affordable, with HD decoding. Almost pulled the trigger on the Pioneer, but I think I'll wait for this one.

Can't wait to hear some reviews.

I wrote Yamaha about a release date in the U.S., but haven't heard back. It isn't even on their site (or at least I haven't found it.)

I have been digging around and not managed to find anything about US release and price, only found Japanese stuff and some British stuff from whathifi.com, would love to see a actual press release or something on the website from Yamaha on this. However within 24 hours of its US release i hope to be reading a shoot out by Davyo.

Yep, I emailed Yamaha last week and got the same response.

My guess is Yamaha is waiting for CES to do the official release.

CES is in January right? That means probably no announcement or release this month.

Yep, I think Jan 6-9. Bah humbug Yamaha, bah humbug!

Well I've resolved myself to wait even though there's currently a sale on the CT350 (it's not much).

price is official!! i don't believe you guys are interested in this piece and don't even have a clue about pricing

yamaha europe has announced at 999 euros; in the US everything is cheaper (ahh you guys are soo lucky!) so it will be 999$.

BUT online it will probably be found a little less at 900$ maybe

Isn't that roughly what most Yamaha soundbars cost though?

Slightly OT: anyone know how good their Intellibeam is? Is it legit in providing better faux-surround?, or just an expensive gimmick?
