Well, Amazon put the YSP-2500 at a price today that I couldn't refuse! Only $631 saving $367! I'm very nervous because I have not heard the sound-bar and everybody on here seems to claim they have a sound you need to hear in-person to judge if you'll like it or not. BUT, I haven't had a sound system for YEARS and the only sound I have right now is coming out of my new 65 inch samsung tv. It's impressive for a tv 1 inch thick perhaps but movies like Star Wars made me want to cry because it just couldn't handle all those sounds at the same time and any kind of bass.
I also haven't listened to ANY sound bars or sound systems at any stores.
So, it would probably have to be pretty bad for me NOT to be impressed compared to my current situation and unknowing of other sound offerings. I'm just hoping the surround sound is semi-convincing. We have a square living room for the most part so it seems like a pretty good match as far as that goes.
Fingers crossed and I'll report back but if anyone else is looking for the 2500 then I'd jump on that Amazon deal while you can. It's a pretty good price. I've seen others discounted a lot but they are not from places I trust and this ships right from Amazon which I've had good luck with.
