Given that the S401 supports expanding to real surround speakers I took two rear speakers from an extra Mirage Nanosat 5.1 speaker system and hooked them up. One change in the menu system and the rear speakers are active.

For a bedroom setup I could not ask for more from a soundbar, except that I wish it was a little wider so it was more in proportion with the 51" TV but the sound is superior to the Samsung HD-W550 I had before. I was not satisfied with the input setup or sound from that system so I returned it for the Yamaha.

If anyone has questions about this unit feel

free to ask, I am very satisfied with it so far. The receiver/built-in subwoofer is very nice and you can control the volume of each speaker independently. The big seller on this unit for me was the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA support.

Hi heed,
Was it Samsung HW-D550?
I tried to find for comparison but I couldn't find HD-W550. smile.gif

If I have my room arranged like in the picture A wih a YSP-2200, will I be able to get a good surround effect?


I worry that the door opening to the left of the TV-sofa will be a problem for the surround sound (and maybe also the furniture to the right and the two windows behind the sofa).
