This was this price in boxing day sale back down to £299 excellent price for your first home cinema set up

The Yamaha YHT1840 provides ideally matched speakers and an AV receiver for a fantastic introduction to home cinema.

Home cinema sound made easy
Connect your TV, Blu-ray/DVD player and games console to the Yamaha YHT1840 and you're ready for the full cinema experience. With built-in Dolby and DTS digital processors, the YHT1810 fires out sound effects around the room for a real sense of 'being there'. Sound is processed by192/24-bit Burr Brown DACs on each channel for powerful dynamics that'll keep you on the edge of your seat! Music is equally well looked after as the amp quality components for a more detailed and natural sound.

Fully immersive sound
Soundbars are great but there's nothing that can beat the sound of a separates AV system. With five channels of sound from a discrete amplifier, the YHT1840 surrounds you in rich, low distortion sound – just like at the cinema. The amplifier also delivers a handy 70 watts per channel, meaning it can cope with even the punchiest-sounding blockbusters. There’s also an 'Extra Bass' function. This gives a deeper, richer bass response and works really well with small speakers and at lower volume levels.

Ready for the latest UHD sources
For full compatibility with the exciting new UHD Blu-ray format, all the HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR Video including Dolby Vision, Hybrid Log-Gamma, and BT.2020. Four inputs let you connect up a Blu-ray, games console, set-top box and PC – enough for an entire home cinema system.

Flexible processing
Another advantage of going for AV separates is the inclusion of powerful surround sound processing. As well as full HD audio decoding of both Dolby and DTS formats, the YHT1840 features Yamaha's famous DSP Surround programs. With 17 modes from The Roxy Theatre to a concert Hall in Munich, the Yamaha system gives a variety of acoustic settings for a unique sound. Added to this, four SCENE selections ensure that you always have the best setting when watching films or listening to music.

Sleek curved speakers
With an eye to enhancing the coolest of interiors, the satellite speakers have been designed to be unobtrusive. Slim enough to be wall mounted via their keyhole openings, they also benefit from a tapering rear panel and smooth edges. The centre speaker is a dedicated design with improved sensitivity and crisp dialogue and is also easily wall mounted. The subwoofer gives the bass a natural, powerful sound that avoids bass 'boom'.

For a quality home cinema system that doesn't sacrifice sound for good looks, the Yamaha YHT1840 brings it together with style.

Looks pretty solid to me including the surround amp. I just hope that sub can cope with mid range bass as at that size the speakers may struggle.
Having said that, ignore it completely if you are after your first surround system and don't have space for large speakers, I'm sure this will be very admirable. Heated.
I've got this, it's the best value system you're going to get at even twice the price if not more.
Purchasing this is a easy choice if you don't want a sound bar because you want more quality sound and do not have space or money to really go big with an amp and floorstanders etc. This is the convenience midpoint.
I warn you it's not hi-fi, but for the price it's very very good.
If you want hifi then you'll be spending around 1500-2000 minimum anyway and you will not be looking at this.

It's pretty decent, just play around with the sound settings and it'll sound quite good.
As mentioned before it's not hi-fi with those speakers but for home theater it's perfect for those not looking to go big. You can always buy a much better speaker package and cables later on and keep the amp.

Decided to have a look around to answer your question.

Speakers

Frequency response

NS-B20 ................................................70 Hz-25 kHz (-10 dB)

-45 kHz (-30 dB)


NS-C20................................................65 Hz-25 kHz (-10 dB)

-45 kHz (-30 dB)

Sub

Frequency response ...........................................30 Hz–160 Hz

It doesn't give all that much away. You'll probably need to use the sub to get any worthwhile mid-bass if it's tuned to fill in the gaps of the speakers.

Ive just bought the Tannoy oak mercury centre for £69 from RS which seemed decent value.
My set up will be for watching music DVDs more than filums, so i'm aiming for good Tannoy book shelf speakers at all points, to run 5 ch stereo as much as Dubbly.

I did hum and hah over this set up though. Decent value.

If you already have decent speaker set then you can have a lot more freedom on the amp you want, also ensure you get the right output for your sub, whether active or passive.
This speaker set is all passive including the sub, and the amp does all that, so you can swap it out for another decent sub of your choice if using this amp.
On the subject of speakers, they are all small satellite types. Pretty much midrange and slight treble only.
If you're a proper hifi nerd then these speakers will not do at all.
For everyone else, they are fine for TV and movies.
yup, if i was after a system purely for cinema id have probably gone for it.
am I right in thinking this does not support 4k passthrough?

After gettingthe 65" techwood that only has the 3 ports looking to upgrade my old amp as neither support HDMI at all.

Looking to update my 10yr old onkyo it plays most things in DTS as no DD+ (onlyDD). I have old jamo spot speakers which punch well in a small room.
Keep getting tempted with 4k and HDR.. but I think currently atmos is the way to go if want future proofing for a few years.

'that's actually quite a decent sub response there.
I think this should be expired now as it links to a page at £349. Shame as I was considering this

You could buy the yamaha RXV383 for £199 here richersounds.com/tv-…tml a slightly better AV it has Bluetooth and get the Yamaha NSP40 speakers for £116.95 here superfi.co.uk/p-1…wcB again a bit better because the subwoofer is a ACTIVE one as opposed to this one being PASSIVE so the total price is £315.95. So £16 dearer for better overall system

Thanks for taking the time to post - I did manage to find this package for £299 online from a different site which I ordered last night but I decided to follow your advice and cancelled that and bought what you suggested instead. Thanks once again
Am I correct in that I could use this as hdmi splitter? We have a blue Ray player, switch and sky q. I currently use a cheap £5 splitter but it's playing up. Is also like to improve the audio on the room. £316 seems reasonable to me for the setup just above?

You can connect up to 4 hdmi devices it has 4 hdmi in sockets and 1 out to your TV and the audio is superb it will be the best £316 you have spent. I have a older similar yamaha system had it for 7 years now and it is still going strong

does anyone have any other suggestions for possible speaker package for roughly the same price as quoted above - I bought the amp in this link and have ordered the speakers as listed but they are out of stock at superfi and not expecting delivery until sometime in March - I don't think I can wait that long! Thanks in advance

Has your turntable got a equaliser amplifier switch if it has put the switch into on position you can then connect to the AUX.
I have a Denon DP200 turntable and it has that switch under the platter and it is connected to the AUX on a Yamaha RXV 371 AV because it doesn't have phono if it had phono you would put the switch into off position and connect to phono

europe.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/home_theater_systems/yht-1840/specs.htmlAlso from the pictures I googled for you I saw 2 phono inputs, and the specs also corroborate this. Link supplied.


They are not phono inputs they are analogue audio input phono input has a pre-amp built in.Like i said in my previous comment if his turntable has built in amplifier switch he can connect to those inputs with the turntable amplifier switch on

Yes you can do that but you need to buy the phono pre amp unit as shown to go between the turntable and av reciever. What make turntable have you got some have a built in pre amp without a switch. Have you got a manual for the turntable.
Here is a link for a pre amp unit richersounds.com/hi-…tml you might find cheaper on amazon
