Yamaha YSP-5600 vs Sony HT-ST5000

Yamaha YSP-5600 review

The total sound power of the YSP-5600 amplifiers is 128 W, of which 88 W account for the main emitters and 40 W for the bass drivers. The Yamaha YSP-5600 is a soundbar with a sound projector function that supports the latest Dolby Atmos and DTS: X audio formats. The column is made in a minimalist design, all emitters are behind a metal protective mesh, and the case has a black finish. In the middle of the front grid, at the bottom, there is a simple display that shows the selected input, set volume level and DSP mode. On the left there are LED indicators showing the status of the system and the connection via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Yamaha YSP-5600

Two more HDMI inputs are directed back, as well as an Ethernet jack. The HT-ST5000 also has Wi-Fi (2.4 / 5 GHz) and Bluetooth with NFC. All HDMI inputs support 4K, HDR and HDCP2.2. Sony HT-ST5000
