There is also a PDF (Owner's Manual for North America - 5100 - 4100):

Sweet looking forward to some reviews

Now we can see why the 5100 costs more and is larger, it has 2x1" tweeters. The manual says the 5100 has them only and the images below confirm that. The 5100 can also go as low as 75hz vs 90hz on the 4100. I'll be going with a 5100 when ever that is. My guess is they will show them off at CES with pricing and a release date.

This is my first post here but I have been reading for a while. I am about to purchase a Panasonic 42inch V10 and have been looking for a sound system. Thanks to you all, I am set on one of the Yamaha soundbars!
I wondered if you could give me some advice. I try my best to understand all the tecnical stuff but I need a little help with which one to get.

I am looking at the 4000 or 4100 There seems a big price leap so I am not sure it is worth the extra money to get the 4100 for me. I don't have an ipod/iphone.
Is there anyone who could give me a quick overview of the differences? I would really appreciate any help at all. Thank you!!

The 4100 has a better HDMI implementation: more inputs (4 versus 2) and audio support. It also allows the user to expand the system with wireless rear or side speakers, for those interested.

Any update on a release date yet for US?
post #71 of 169
Thanks Dsurkin!
post #72 of 169
Can anyone recommend where to get the 4000 from? Is it on line only?
post #73 of 169
Was thinking about getting the new 4100 but my 58" Panasonic V10 already
has 4 HMDI inputs so I am just running my three HMDI devices into the TV and sending one digital signal out to AUX 1 on the 4000. Can now tune to any of the device inputs with my Logitech remote Hamony One. Don't think I'm loosing any audio quality this way and am not needing any of the 4000's HMDI inputs. Let me know what you think. Now I wonder if the extra HMDI inputs on the 4100 are of any value to me and is it worth the money to upgrade with only the improved audio codecs and the 2 wireless speaker outputs in the deal?

post #76 of 169

Can't understand that Yamaha releases a 4100 and then with only a month and a half later releases the 5100, AND NO 4100 selling in the US? Just don't get it...

post #79 of 169
Still no news about 4100/5100 in USA?
post #80 of 169
No news about YSP @ CES.
post #81 of 169
Argh. I'm checking daily to find out more about the YSP 5100. It is the perfect solution to my current setup. I just got a 55" Sammy LED 8000 series and left exactly 8.5" clearance from the bottom of the TV to the stand it is mounted over top of.

I was hoping would bring us US release dates & pricing. Technically it doesn't begin until tomorrow and Yamaha is listed on the booth guide. Fingers crossed we get some solid information.

There is a single HDMI cable just waiting for the YSP.
post #82 of 169
Tell me about it. I have had Google Alert set up with YSP 4100 for the last two months. Nothing here in the US yet.
post #83 of 169
Still nothing? Even with CES wrapping up and the fact that Yamaha rented a booth...
post #84 of 169
Looks like it is finally listed on the Yamaha.com page. I'm new here, so, I'm not allowed to post links. But, check out Yamaha.com follow this breadcrumb trail: YEC / Products / Digital Sound Projectors / and click "See All Products >" in the bottom right.

There you have it. We're getting there. Yamaha needs to improve their marketing team... product announcements should not be made like this. Especially not after they had the chance to show it off at CES.

Anyone see it for sale yet?
post #85 of 169
