Bring the brilliance of Yamaha's MusicCast to your main system, with the WXC50, MusicCast pre-amp.

MusicCast for music all around your home

The Yamaha WXC50 is part of Yamaha's hugely impressive network audio system, MusicCast. With MusicCast you can control all your compatible Yamaha MusicCast products via your smartphone or tablet. Play the same music on all the components or split the sound into different zones for different moods in each room; the choice is yours. The MusicCast CONTROLLER app also lets you operate the speaker and change settings quickly and easily.

Wi-Fi with Spotify Premium and AirPlay
Connect via Ethernet or wi-fi to your home network and gain access to a whole new world of entertainment. From here you'll be able to access a massive range of Internet radio stations plus music services such as the hugely popular Spotify Premium and Naspter. Also standard is AirPlay, making it easier than ever to stream from your Apple iOS devices.

Stream music from your mobile with Bluetooth
With a Bluetooth receiver built in, it's easy to enjoy your music from other devices. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC and wirelessly stream all your favourite music. With the possibility of streaming music services, such as Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, as well as your own music library, you get access to near unlimited music!

Compatible with High Resolution music files
The Yamaha WXC50 makes a superb choice for listening to your High Resolution music files. It's compatible with WAV/FLAC 192kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless 96kHz/24-bit, DSD 5.6MHz and even the new AIFF 192kHz/24-bit formats. Using a high quality ESS DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), the sound is sensationally detailed.

Wire it in with USB, optical or RCA phono
As well as the wide range of wireless connectivity, the WXC50 also features a USB interface plus optical and RCA phono inputs. The USB socket is ideal for USB stick devices while the phono inputs let you hook up a traditional Hi-Fi source such as a CD player or turntable with built-in pre-amp. The optical input is ideal for connecting your TV or Blu-ray/DVD player.

Compact and stylish
More router than conventional amplifier-sized, the WXC-50 can easily be accommodated; it can even be turned on its side for really tight spaces. The rigid casework is made to Yamaha's usual high standards and, with 1U rack mounting capability, ideal for professional use.

For one of the finest and most flexible music streaming systems around, just add your Hi-Fi.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value product. Sound is clear, base is deep, controls and remote are useful and easy to use. Product is well-made. Navigating the MusicCast interface requires patience as it is not completely intuitive, especially the Airplay function. This does not work at all from a Mac computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of equipment I have a very good audio system but ageing and wanted to stream through my primare equipment and B&W speakers after listening to dragonfly red i opted for the yamaha WXC50 and can verify streaming at 320kbps is as good as my £2500 cd player. This product is a steal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sounds - ok app... I bought this about 6 months ago and am running through a CXA60 amp and some older MA Gold GX100 Standmounts that I picked up second hand. The app is a bit clunky but I mainly use through the Spotify app so I don't use it. One tip - if you can live without volume control etc from your phone, switch to "player" mode. It may be my ears but the sound quality goes from good to great with much more detail and clarity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great preamp, musiccast app not so great The preamp does exactly what I want: connect my old nad c 350 amplifier to internet radio and my music on my pc. It also has an optical in so I can also attach my TV. The sound quality of the streamer is more than enough for my setup. The app to control the WCX-50 definitely needs some work. Finding and sorting music from my PC is not straight forward. Hopefully this gets updated soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, easy set up. Excellent sound, grea I bought this a couple weeks ago at Richer Sounds Cambridge, the unit was well reviewed and has proven to be excellent. The set up was very straight forward and I linked my NAS drive and hifi via the unit and the sound is excellent. The app works well and I found it intuitive. A special mention goes to staff at Richer Sounds because the original unit was defective: the staff arranged for a new unit to be sent and the defective collected within 48 hours. Excellent service and helpful throughout the purchase process. I would definitely return to Richer Sounds Cambridge to purchase a network attached speaker for another room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little network music streamer I wanted a network music streamer so that I can use my NAS to store and play FLAC files. The Yamaha unit was very easy to connect and set up. "Musicast" was downloaded and installed on my Android phone and connected to the WXC50 at the first attempt. I also ran a digital optical Toslink cable direct from my Blue Ray/DVD player to the WXC50 and after a fiddle in the DVD menus got the sound working pefectly. This is a fantastic piece of kit - adding music streaming from my NAS, internet radio, internet music streaming, USB playback & cinema sound into my existing Cambridge Audio / B&W hi fi system. And at a fraction of the cost of other units. The music sounds top-notch. Highly recommended
