No auto shutoff which I fixed with a remote controlled plug so I don't have to go behind the sub to push in the on off switch -much more convienent and works great and reasonably priced on amazon. and 2. The on off light is also on the back so I don't always know if it is off. However the remote switch does make an actual click sound (very low click sound) coming from the switch plugged into a powerstrip on the floor at the back of my TV and I can usually hear it when I press the on or off button on the small remote.
yes, thanks i did review that thread. my only concern with the Yammy is that others have suggested it (and the 2200 for that matter) works best in a room with walls to bounce the sounds and create the psuedo surround effect. The room with the tv is a great room with a wall behind the tv and to the right of the tv, but open on the left to the kitchen area and in front of the tv, a long area back to the foyer and wall/staircase (at least 25 if not 30 feet with 10 foot ceilings). others on the forum have suggested that the Polk 6000 works well without 4 close surrounding walls. This is a gift for my son in law so i am limited to the cost I outlined above (i am splitting the cost with my daughter). I am even wondering if the Polk 400CHT paired with a sub might be the better option, but i believe i would need a separate receiver and that would make the cost prohibitive. Maybe i am thinking too hard about the problem and i should just get the YAS 101 and pair it with a good sub and the cost would be about $500. i know that even that without any surround effect woould be better than the Samsung Tv speakers.
