Yamaha YRS-700 - A TV Stand That Costs £800

It’s a tough life having so much technology, tripping over wires and leads constantly. For those poor blighters out there with just too many TVs, sound systems, PCs, Blu-ray players, games consoles, phone chargers and a lava lamp or two, the good people over at Yamaha have designed one device which should help reduce some of that clutter.

Never mind that it retails at £800, the YRS-700 is a TV stand with an integrated 7.1 surround-sound, sound projector. No need for messy cables to speakers in every corner of the room, the YRS-700 will clear all that up for you even gives you somewhere to put your telly – which is nice.

Last week Yamaha released its latest one-box home cinema solution, the YSP-1, which is a slimline digital sound projector. And while you might think the quality of the sound may be compromised because of having to squeeze it into such a small space, Yahama claims otherwise. “The YRS-700 sounds phenomenal, delivering highly detailed, dynamic and punchy full 7.1 channel home theatre sound via a massive 250w digital amplifier,” a statement said. There is also a invisible sub-woofer hidden away in the device somewhere.

The YRS-700 is 3D compatible and employs Yamaha’s Air Surround XTREME technology which delivers a spacious multichannel experience. There are four surround-sound settings including movies, music, sport and games.

The Extended Stereo function delivers super-wide stereo imaging and in order to order to get the best from devices such as Blu-ray players the YRS-700 can decode Audio HD signals.

Half the reason for buying a flatscreen TV was so I could put it on the wall and get 3 feet of my living room back. Space it looks like I'll need if I'm going to buy Kinect.

Why so many people buy a flatscreen and then stick it on an enormous stand that's deeper than a cathode ray tube is beyone me.

Probably so they can put other equipment like DVD/bluray players, sky boxes, recorders, media PCs, games consoles, DVD collections, magazines, photographs, plants, pet rocks etc on them.

My TV goes in the corner of the room. So something like this is ideal.

Not everyone can put their TV flat on a wall, and most people still need somewhere for all the peripheral devices that plug into it.
