View Full Version : Yamaha YHT-450 Performance?

I was looking to get a HT system the other day, and I looked at Best Buy and saw a new Yamaha system, the YHT-450, which is a 6.1 channel with some semi-large speakers. Does anyone have any idea how these perform?

I ended up buying a Bose Acoustimass system at Circuit City because I got a deal on it, and I picked up an Onkyo TX-SR501 reciever to drive it, since I've heard nothing but good things about Onkyo. The only problem I have is while the speakers have nice highs, there really doesn't seem to be any big bass which I like. I was wondering if those Yamaha speakers would sound any better, but can't find anything on them as they seem to be too new.

All told, I spent $615 on the setup I have right now. The Yamaha system costs $500 and has everything included, reciever and all. Anyone have any suggestions for me on what to do?
