"If you're looking for a two-channel amplifier for music listening then the WXA-50 will certainly fit the bill." 'AVforums - Recommended'

MusicCast for music all around your home

The Yamaha WXA50 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 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 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 Premium, 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 WXA50 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.

Powerful sound
It might be small, but the WXA50 uses a 55 watt amplifier and powerful processing to great effect. If you're listening to compressed music files from an MP3 player or smartphone, Compressed Music Enhancer enhances the frequency response for a brighter, more open sound. The clever volume-adaptive feature automatically adjusts the bass and treble levels in line with the volume. Advanced bass extension gives a deeper bass that's ideal for when matching with smaller speakers. Finally, if you'd rather hear the music exactly as the producer intended, Direct Mode bypasses all processing for the purest sound possible.

Wire it in with USB, optical or RCA phono
As well as the wide range of wireless connectivity, the WXA50 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 WXA-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 speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fifth one have purchased, enough said ! Have large house with Yamaha wxa50 and ceiling speakers in each room, can join them together for music in every room or just a few. App on phone works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound. Simple setup. Clean design I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I’m happy to say it is easy to setup. It also sounds great as you would expect from Yamaha although not as powerful as I expected. I have it driving a pair of Whatfedale Diamond 11.2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha Music cast I bought this main system and 3 additional items to work with it and have in exceptionally pleased with the outcome. They are used to link 8 ceiling speakers that were previously redundant, +2 additional stand-alone systems, to create a complete sound system throughout the house controlled from our telephones. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little receiver - sounds great Bought this to link to an existing wired sound system - as it has an aux out. Have read the worries about the MusicCast app - but it linked first time for me and connects seamlessly. Vey nice piece of kit

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great but missing Amazon Music HD Sounds beautiful using AirPlay on my son's Iphone, but unfortunately, there's no native support for Amazon Music HD - Yamaha introduced support for it on their Musiccast app last year, but apparently only for certain devices in their product range - with a heavy heart, I've had to return it - now looking at the Denon DNP-800NE only this time, i'll read the small print! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features If space is a limitation this little amplifier will bring great features, enough power and good sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Launch into MusicCast After much online searching and discussion with the local Richer Sounds store, I have finally decided to launch into MusicCast for the first time. My old mini hi-fi was abandoned together with CDs, tapes, and mini-disks (remember those!) A Yamaha MusicCast WXA 50 now drives my cherished old speakers, links to a new MusicCast 20 speaker and picks up the TV sound output. Setting up couldn't have been easier and control via the MusicCast App is a delight Music, radio, podcasts and streaming services are now a few taps away. I would control it via Alexa but I don't want to share the pleasure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Piece of Kit I bought this after spending weeks deliberating between various amps and receivers and I'm so glad I did. It's linked up my turntables and telly to my Q Acoustic 3020i speakers perfectly and sits in vogue on my bookshelf without adding another clunky black box to the living room. While the app could definitely be cleaned up a little, the ability to play internet radio and stream music via wi-fi is such a hit. The quality is such an improvement from my previous Bluetooth set-up and allows me to take calls on my phone without affecting playback. I'm looking forward to investing further into Music Cast so I can make use of it's multi-room functionality.
