The roll-out of YHT-196 HTiB stands as a testament to the fact that Yamaha rules the roost with its Home theater systems. This 5.1 HtiBs (Home Theatre In A Box) is a complete package with five satellites, subwoofer, AV receiver, Dolby Digital surround system and HDMI with 3D and Audio Return Channel ensuring a cinema like experience for the listeners. The compartmentalizing is perfect with no room for dissatisfaction. The bass reflex slots give more teeth for bass extension for the bottom edge of the satellite. The plastic quality is the one that Yamaha has always adhered to. However, the subwoofer appears to be a bit huge than necessary though we are happy that it hasn’t joined the boring bandwagon of horizontal ones.

With the frequency range of 30Hz to 25 kHz, the device wins hearts of audiophiles with its digital sound field processing technology. The 17 CINEMA DSP programs allow you to change the pre-equalized sound setting and create an atmosphere, depending on the genre of music that you are listening. The design is stunning and the black gloss finish binds the center seamlessly with the entire thing.

The subwoofer with a 6.4 driver is completely dependent on the AV receive for its power which boasts of a power capacity of 100W of power even when only one of its channels is operating, indicating delivery of 30-40W of power per channel when all the channels together can drive.

Another good thing about using YHT-196 HTiB is its remote control which is increasingly simple to use with the buttons being placed perfectly, winning points for the user – friendliness it renders. Pegging on a powerful performance, it will introduce you to a new entertainment experience.
