Failure in design lead to rattling.
I bought this subwoofer for it's small size and good looks and assumed that it would sound great. The Ns-sw300 is the replacement for the yst-rsw300. The set-up consists of a dolby atmos 5.1.2 polk signature speaker system with a Yamaha rx-a1070 av reciever. I this subwoofer with the receiver sub level at - 2 and the volume on the Ns-sw300 half way with the crossover on LFE mode. I ran some music with the Subwoofer and thought it was decent, however it wasn't clear and wasn't as deep as I'd like it to be. I then ran a movie, Tron Legacy for it'...s quite heavy LFE effects as well as Star wars the force awakens and straight away I found a major flaw in the sub's design, it rattles very easily, this rattling came especially in the scene of star wars when kylo ren was using the force on Poe, the rattling was definitely coming from the subwoofer and it was not good. I decided to go back to the store and give it a second chance so I got a replacement, and unfortunately that too rattled in the same way as the first one. In the end I ended returning the Ns-sw300 and I ended up getting an SVS PB1000 Subwoofer and it is a way better Subwoofer for my use. If you however want a small subwoofer that does a great job with the bass, I would not recommend the Ns-sw300, however if you are looking for a small quality Subwoofer that performs really well I definitely recommend a polk HTS 10 Subwoofer which although is cheaper than Ns-sw300 Subwoofer, it will perform better than the Ns-sw300 in every aspect.
Purchased in February 2019 for A$749.00.
Unreliable, old tech
I spent over 2k on a Yamaha sound system, within the warranty period the subwoofer failed - it would not power up! Eventually I flew it back from North Queensland with me, but even from Sydney the freight cost to get it to Melbourne for warranty service is intolerable.
Purchased in September 2018 at Beta Airlie Beach for A$499.00.
Purchased 4 weeks ago couldn’t be happier paired up with a Yamaha 7.2channel received and sorround speakers.
Loud rich deep bass with Chrisp sharp punch
Would recommend for large rooms overpowered for small rooms
Cons: only cons will be that has a few to many adjustment variables that need to be perfect to sound as true as it can. Not really a con but couldn’t find anything bad
