Sound from Above, for an Incredible Sense of Presence. The Dream 3DSurround Sound Has Arrived.
Real 3D Surround Sound Reproduction Realised in a Single Unit byDigital Surround Projector Technology
Inside the unit’s front grille are 44 precisely calculated and positionedspeakers. In order to create 7-channel sound beams (Front left/right, Centre,Surround left/right, Height left/right), each of the speakers is controlled byand individual delay time and is driven with its own independent amplifiercircuit. These beams are projected onto the walls and ceiling, to be reflectedaccurately to the listening position. This creates the same sound as real walland ceiling speakers —not a virtual sound, but real 3D surround soundreproduction. In addition, the YSP-5600 uses the Surround channel sound beamfor Surround Back, and the Surround channel is phantom merged to support theequivalent of up to 7.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos or DTS:X reproduction.
Incorporates the First YSP to Create a Height Channel by Using SoundBeams from Specific Array Speakers
Height channel audio playback is realised by placing six array speakersat each end of the unit (a total of 12). For these array speakers, 28mmdiameter units are used. In order to obtain the maximum sound beam effect, theyare mounted on an angled baffle and sound beam vertical control is adapted.Sound field reproduction is just as if real speakers were mounted on theceiling, so you get great sound without the bother of mounting speakers andstringing wires.
Height Channel Positions Can Be Precisely Adjusted to Match theListening Position
For reproduction of the latest surround sound formats such as DolbyAtmos and DTS:X, the relationship between the listening position and the heightchannel locations is very important for faithful reproduction of the soundspace. The YSP-5600 adjusts the angle of the sound beam directed at the ceilingallowing the height channel position to be matched to the listening positioneither manually or automatically. Even if the listening position relative tothe display changes, you’ll get the effect of the height channel for natural 3Dsurround sound.
Directed Sound Beams Realise Distinct Height Channel Audio
The height channels can be located as close to the listening positionas the centre speakers, and their positions and sound quality have a largeeffect on the live performance feeling created by multi-dimensional sound. Byusing directed beams reflected just once off the ceiling for reproducing theheight channels, the YSP-5600 obtains a sharp sound position and distinctsound, ensuring realistic reproduction of environmental sounds such as thunder.You’ll experience the thrill of 3D surround sound that “rains from heaven.”
Dialogue Lift Ensures Proper Dialogue Orientation
With many soundbars positioned below the TV, especially when the TV isa widescreen model, dialogue and vocals seem to be coming from below the peoplewho are talking or singing. To prevent this problem, the YSP-5600 has aDialogue Lift function (adjustable in three steps) that causes the reflectingbeams from its array speakers to raise the apparent height of the dialogue toappropriate levels on the screen. You enjoy sounds and images that areperfectly aligned, just as in a movie theatre.
Compatible with the New Formats Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
The YSP-5600 supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the latest surroundsound formats that have attracted a lot of attention in the movie industry. DolbyAtmos is supported by the unit when shipped, while DTS:X is planned to besupported with a firmware update.
Supports Yamaha’s Own CINEMA DSP 3D Mode
Yamaha’s original CINEMA DSP 3D Mode adds an expansive height directionto the sound field, creating a rich surround space. The YSP-5600 supports thisfeature by using special array speakers to create vertical beams. You can enjoythe feeling of a live performance with standard sound formats, and combine thiseffect with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X to enjoy a more natural expansion of the 3Dsurround sound.
Choose One of Four Listening Modes to Match Your Scenario
The YSP-5600 is equipped with four listening modes: 3D Surround, whichcommands five horizontal beams and two vertical beams to recreate theequivalent of up to a 7.1.2-channel three-dimensional sound field; Surround,which uses five horizontal beams to perform normal 5.1-channel surroundplayback; Stereo, which uses a special vertical beam speaker as a tweeter toproduce high sound quality 2-channel stereo from audio sources; and Target,which aims monaural speech clearly to a precise location in the room. In 3DSurround mode you can optionally select CINEMA DSP 3D Mode, while in Surroundmode you can optionally select CINEMA DSP, providing a wider variety of soundfield programmes.
Intellibeam Automates the Height Channel Settings
The YSP-5600 employs beam optimisation and sound optimisation featureswith the of the supplied IntelliBeam microphone, allowing you to avoidtroublesome listening-based setup and achieve highly accurate sound adjustmentsthat best match your listening environment. Together, these two features arecalled IntelliBeam. The positions of the sound beams directed at the ceilingcan also be automatically set. The YSP-5600 can thus reproduce the live musicambience of a variety of rooms.
