Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

I haven’t taken a real interest in Yamaha units, especially home theater systems, in a while now. And that’s not because they lack something, they got everything covered from functions, features to the amazing technology they incorporate into their quality audio equipment. The enhanced audio capabilities and convenient functions included made me really consider reviewing this amazing Yamaha YHT-899UBL unit, even though I rarely pick items from this price point to review and present on my website.

The old classic Yamaha design wont tell you this, but the unit has been recently made available for sale. At Amazon the unit became available for purchase on April 30, 2013, and hasn't seen any user reviews presented out in the open.

Although so, the unit stands at #42 in the Home Theater Systems subcategory Bestseller Rank. What that means is that people are already enjoying all the music streaming services and TV watching experience features this unit comes along with.

  • No Bluetooth wireless technology

The overall home theater experience is brought to you by a high performance 5-channel speaker system and a a 115 W 5-channel AV receiver. The CINEMA DSP 3D feature along with the HD Audio provides a wide, high and dense sound field in any type of room, no matter the size of it. The HD Audio format decoding allows you to enjoy any type of HD Audio sources. Virtual Presence Speaker technology helps the unit deliver 3D sound effects without actual use of any presence speakers. As for bass, this is delivered by the 100 W subwoofer speaker (model: YST-SW216BL2); if you know Yamaha you must know there is nothing to complain about when it comes to bass. And because this unit is truly a home theater in the real sense of the word, this really neat feature called SILENT CINEMA will allow you to hear and enjoy large-scale surround sound through any type of headphones. The YPAO redefines "ease of use", with this amazing technology. It will analyze the room acoustics and will adjust various audio parameters for optimum sound in just a few minutes, without your help at all. Letting you hassle-free and enjoying your favorite tunes.

And for a better overall experience, video and audio, the unit is equipped for the next generation super high resolution images and HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel for enhanced audio/video quality and ease of use (and setup). Also, the AV receiver provides a large variety of network capabilities which enable access to more sources and enhances operation. When it comes to ease of use and operation, we must necessarily talk about the Yamaha AV Controller App that the Yamaha YHT-899UBL unit allows you to use. This app is downloadable from iTunes App Store, Google Play or Amazon Appstore. You can control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes as well as operate pretty much any other function directly from your iPod, iPhone, iPad or Android devices (tablets included).

And now, for streaming capabilities the number one technology included is the AirPlay feature; this technology provides easy, wireless music playback of your entire iTunes library (iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, Macs or PCs). A really cool addition to its streaming capabilities is the Pandora feature. This is a free, personalized radio that will play music and comedy you’ll love based on your setting. You only need to start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs, comedians or composers and the Pandora feature do the rest. This feature can create up to 100 custom stations that will play similar tracks based on your preferences. A USB port is also included on the front panel. This allows convenient connection of an iPod, iPhone, iPad, automatically charging them when connected.

I have no doubt that who ever is serious enough with their home entertainment system, will enjoy the Yamaha YHT-899UBL 5.1-Channel Home Theater in a Box and every one of its features including the ECO Mode, Selectable Auto Power Down and Low Standby Power Consumption which are highly environmentally friendly and help you save money at the same time. Overall a really great unit, the only thing I'm sorry about is that I don't have time and space to share every one of its amazing features and technologies included; check the link below to see what I missed to mention.
