  1. This is a very timely article for my family. Our current speaker set for our TV has broken, we have replaced the power supply once, only for it to fail again, so it is time for a new system.

    I wanted to get a TV Sound Bar but my husband is adamant that the quality is not good enough without a Subwoofer and Stereo Speakers.

    I was worried that we could not find a quality and affordable system but this Yamaha Speaker Set looks perfect.

    As you say Yamaha has a good reputation for quality products so hopefully this will last longer than current setup!

    • Thank you, Susie, for your comment and am glad that you found this article helpful and directly touching and addressing your need. Sometimes the power supply may be a problem and it’s nice you had it fixed even before thinking about another subwoofer.

      As you say yes, the TV sound will be improved a great deal by this Yamaha NS SP1800BL 5.1 Home Theater. It has all you need to provide for all your home audio need. If you like, with the provision of multiple speakers, you can connect every room from the main sound supply and each member of family will get to enjoy quality sound in his/her room.

      Thank you so much for stopping by. Please let me know if you need any more assistance on this issue.

      Best wishes,

      Paul.

  2. Great timing! The plasma TV we paid $3000 for 13 years ago finally died! Instead of spending $400 more for the Sony, I think I’ll buy the Samsung I like and add a home theater surround for $150. In the end I’ll have more versatility and still have a great picture! Thanks!

    • Sorry to hear that your expensive plasma TV died. Fortunately enough, now you wouldn’t have to spend too much for a replacement of a screen and sound system. The Yamaha NS SP1800BL 5.1 will serve you, meeting all your audio needs at a very affordable price. It has a high quality for only  $149.95. 

      It is very easy to connect with your TV and you won’t require any training to have it installed. 

      Let me know if you need any more assistance.

      Paul.

  3. Thank you very much for providing a very detailed review on these speakers. I have some speakers but they do not work very well and I have been considering getting some new speakers lately.
    Theres speakers seem quite good for their price. Have you had experience with this item? Do you know how long it lasts?
    Thank you very much.

    • It’s nice to see your comment here and am sorry that your speakers are not working well. As you said it may be this is a wake up call for the need of purchasing another home theater or speakers. 

      Yes, Yamaha NS SP1800BL 5.1 would be your best option. Yes, I purchased it last year and I’ve been using it without any issues till now. It has good quality sound production and as I can see it has good lifespan. Yamaha has a reputation of good quality and long life products.

  4. This product looks supa cool. I love being immersed in music and my boyfriend is a movie fanatic. He has to have all the lights off and that quality sound, so I’ve been looking for a set up for my living room because my tv speakers seriously suck. They’re that nasty sort of metallic whiney quality. No Bueno.

    Thanks for the intensive review!

    Helen

    • Thank you Helen for stopping by to look at this review. As a matter of fact if you love music as I do, you will prioritize quality audio. In order to get the quality sound you will have to get yourself quality sound system. Yamaha has produced a good system that is pocket friendly without compromising the quality. 

      This set can be good when it comes to connecting with your screen so watching movies with your boyfriend will be a great fun.

      Best wishes 

      Paul. 

  5. Paul thank you so much for this article. It is a great help to me and my family. My husband and I are thinking about investing in a system. This really helps. You are very thorough in your gathering and presentation. Thank you so much! How long have you been interested in this subject if you don’t mind me asking?

    • Hi Michelle, 

      I’m glad to read your comment here. Thank you for your kind words and compliment. If you guys are planning to purchase a new system, this won’t disappoint you in price and quality. Many people who have used this product have gven good reports about it. Thank you for your question about my interest. 

      To be honest with you, the passion about music has been within me ever since I was a child. It grew with time to an extent of learning how to play several musical instruments. 

      Hope this answers your question. If you need to know anything more please let me know.

      Paul.

  6. I really wanted to get this home theater but I have been disappointed to see it can’t be used in large halls.

    I loved its classy look and wanted to get it for my chill zone hall with my buds to crank up the music.

    Do you know any other system like that which has unlimited sound and thick durable wire?

    Please help me out. Thanks a lot.

    • Hi Dave,

      It’s so nice reading your comment here. As you say, it is true that this home theater can’t be used in big halls. It is better suited for home setup whereby you have smaller rooms. If your plan is to install proper audio in a hall environment, you may require a set of instruments that involves an amplifier, speakers and their cables.

      If you feel that you need a more classy audio production, you may consider budgeting for a sound mixer which will help in equalizing and spicing up your audio.

      Hope this helps. If you have any more concerns please let me know.

      Paul.

  7. This is for someone like me who has no idea about this kind of technology. I like the way you put the article up and presented to me everything I should know about this product. Surely, a lady wants to buy a theater system without knowing what works better than the other products? Definitely, I would rely on this kind of thing to my husband. Thanks so much buddy for your website!

    • Yes, I really understand that it can be a little bit tricky if you want to buy a product and you don’t know anything about it or the difference from others. I appreciate the fact that this review has provided you with all the information you need in purchasing the instrument. Just feel free to talk to your husband about this product review and am hoping that this information will also make sense to him. If you have any concerns please let me know.

  8. Just finished remodeling my basement, and I think our plans are to make it into a rec center for entertain guests. I have been looking at a few different home theaters, but I have still been undecided.
    After reading your review of the Yamaha NS SP1800BL 5.1 Channel Home Theater System, I think I found a winner!
    But I still have to clear it with the boss, if you know what I mean!
    I was wondering if you had any thoughts on other entertainment components I can pair this with if I get the green light?
    Thanks,
    Brendon

    • Hi Brendon, it sounds good to have already finished the basement preparation now awaiting audio installation ready to entertain guests. One thing I love with Yamaha NS SP1800BL 5.1 Channel Home Theater System is the ability to work for long hours. This makes it suitable for such a task especially if you have a continuous flow of visitors.

      You may also consider getting yourself a DJ sound mixer which can spice up your entertainment. Of course this would be an excellent alternative if you would like to take your entertainment to a higher level. This goes with speakers and most probably a power amp. It all depends on you and what you are looking for.

      Hope this helps. If you have any more concerns or questions, please let me know.

      With appreciations

      Paul.

  9. This looks to be a promising speaker set. I usually would listen to music with headphones on but I think it would be nice to have a speaker later down the road.

    That being said, I would definitely be interested in trying this one out as it seems to be a low price for a great quality speaker.

    My question is, which genre(s) of music is this best for? Do you think this is good for all genres or is it best for those who are mainly into one genre?

    • Well, this home theater is not but limited to certain genre of music. It’s performance is best for all kinds of music. All what matters is the way you adjust it as you play different music.

      For the time I’ve been using this machine I have played all sorts of music without any issues. I like reggae, blues and country music and all have played very well on this theater. 

      I hope this helps and if you have any more questions please let me know. 

  10. I am actually looking for a home theatre system to work with my TV. I tend to be a little hard of hearing, so the sound coming out of the flat screen TV (as we know the sound with flat screens is not the best) is just not good for me. I end up having to set the volume really loud because the sound is directed downwards from the TV and not outwards. Would this work well with a TV and not distort the sound? How high of a volume do you have to set it at for the sound to be distorted? I have to play the sound kind of loud, at least my son says it is loud. But I think with having the speakers all around the room, this would alleviate me from having to blare the sound.

    • Nice to hear from you and I hope this article is part of the solution to your problem of a home theater. As you say, I don’t like the harsh sound that comes from screens because sometimes they are so uncontrolled. To solve this, a home theater is a nice option.

      About what exact volume to adjust, I think it all depends on different people. Personally, I love relatively low volume especially when am trying to concentrate with a specific information or a film. I don’t like too much tremble either and I prefer to balance my audio with Yamaha NS SP1800BL 5.1 Channel home theater. It has multiple speakers that atleast will serve you in every room so that you don’t have to hick the volume from the living room to be heard in all rooms.

      Let me know if you have any more concerns.

      Paul.
