Pros and Cons
Pros5

It took me three days to get the sub and back surround speakers set to my liking. Movie mode is like being in a movie theatre as those twin 10” subwoofers literally vibrate the room. The surround speakers fill the space and create the movie theatre ex...  Read More

The sound is extremely clean and full. Clears up voices that were hard to hear before. Literally exhilarating sound. I couldn't be happier with it.

You won't be disappointed with this system. Almost 40 years later and many changes from the 2 channel days, this system rocks!

Nd subwoofer expands the soundstage and immersing you in bass and mid-range sounds. I have a very larg living room and this really immersed the entire room.

Dual bass subs sound thundering at the right times. The bass rattles my room.

Cons5

Yamaha advertises the ysp-5600 as supporting 7. Definitive audio tests show this unit can truly only handle 7. Nakamichi advertises this unit as supporting 9. My amazon fire 4k tv will not play 4k videos from amazon as the hdmi is not certified 2.

Another * is that the shockwafe doesn't output and display the settings on the tv. It’s embarrassing how many times it glitches when i have people over during a movie night and i have to reset the system every 20 minutes. Often when i switch from one ...  Read More

Having this kind of inconsistency is not acceptable for such a high dollar product. These numbers are not to be used for marketing gimmicks. If the manual was updated and written correctly there would be no need to even get in touch with them.

I have been completely underwhelmed from day one. The dual subs are underpowered and soft. The bass is terrible. It's nothing that couldn't be replicated with any single mid-range subwoofer.

It sounds tinny and muddy at the same time. Says the sound source is dolby atoms on the display on the soundbar. The sound is muffled and lacks clarity.

Pros4

The sound is magnificent. Gorgeous sound. It looks good and discreet so the wife doesn't complain about it.

Dolby atmos is absolutely amazing as the sound travels off the ceiling and in various directions. x is in dolby atmos on disney+.

Dialog is pretty clear, and the dialog enhancement setting works well for the most part. It does an excellent job with voices, even without the voice mode enabled on the app.

The sonos app is very user friendly, it's really simple to setup. The instructions that come in the box are foolproof. Set it up through the phone app. New system software for android or apple comes out.

Sonos arc is a pain in the *. What in the heck is up with this hassle?
