The Yamaha YSP-3000 is a digital sound projector that falls in the middle of those offered by Yamaha. This sound projector has 21 sound beam drivers and two woofers to deliver a true multi-channel surround sound for an elegant home theater system. The Intellibeam technology directs each beam precisely and optimizes the sound beam effect, frequency response and other parameters to match the room. There are several different beam modes including 5-beam mode, stereo mode, 3-beam mode and stereo + 3-beam mode.  Another mode, "My Beam Mode", can be used to specifically target sound to the place that a user is sitting using the remote control to locate your position. This mode is usefull for people who are hard of hearing or to clearly hear dialogue without waking other people who are sleeping nearby. This is a perfect match for a widescreen HDTV providing a 1080p compatible HDMI output with two inputs and  a composite video in/out.  It also features iPod, XM and XMHD satellite compatibility with optional dock/tuners. The Yamaha YSP-3000 is available in silver as the YSP-3000SL and in black as the YSP-3000BL.
