Whether this is your first MusicCast component or an expansion to an existing system the WX-AD10 is the ideal way of making your current Hi-Fi part of the MusicCast family. Setting up is easy; simply plug the WX-AD10 into the AUX socket via the Yamaha’s 3.5mm mini-jack or RCA phonos, connect to the Internet and you’re good to go.

The MusicCast CONTROLLER app also lets you operate the speaker and change settings quickly and easily.

Advanced networking including Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Built-in Apple AirPlay means that you can stream music from your Apple iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other compatible Apple device, wirelessly. If you use another brand of smartphone or tablet then you've also got Bluetooth, for easy music streaming from your portable device.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing is a top quality Burr Brown DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor).

The WX-AD10 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including FLAC 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DAB problem solved I have a Marantz Hi Fi system and I wished to upgrade the Tuner to DAB from AM/FM. I consulted Richer Sounds Cambridge and they advised I would be better to get an internet streamer. We settled on the Yamaha WXAD10. It arrived promptly and works well with an ethernet cable to my router. The sound quality is excellent and was improved by upgrading the supplied cables to the Amp with Cambridge 300 cables. The system is controlled from an Ipad using the MusicCast app. Although there is no proper manual, the setup is quite intuitive and the staff at Cambridge were very helpful with telephone advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed to listen to Music The Yamaha WXAD10 was just what I needed to connect my conservatory to the rest of the house using the hi-fi unit in the corner. Now I can listen to my music library held on my iMac. next bit of kit will be a NAS. However the real star is Richer Sounds. From first contact then price matching to receiving the unit took less than 24hrs. Superb service for a useful bit of kit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing functionality - Sound quality Good Having used my free Spotify account to stream to my Roberts Radio during lockdown, this looked like the ideal upgrade to improve sound quality. Nowhere did it say that it had to be a Paid For Spotify account as it doesn't work with a free one. Given the limited feeds, testing has shown the sound quality to be good, but really I'm not using it as it isn't very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great affordable introduction to Streaming audio.. Impressed with this little network adapter from Yamaha. Just the right device to turn your older hi-fi separates system into wireless streaming capability. For the money this streamer with built in Burr-Brown Dac sounds excellent and a great introduction to the digital streaming world. Highly recommended! As are Richersounds for their great service and competitive pricing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound quality, shame it doesn't unpack MQA I bought this over the phone from Richer Sounds, really quick and easy. We're in lockdown so took a while to arrive, but really simple to set up and start using. The interface to Tidal is a bit slow but the sound quality it pretty good through my Linn system. It's a shame that it doesn't seem to unpack the MQA files, but the Flac 44khz still sounds pretty good. I like the radio option and have been exploring that a fair bit which still sounds pretty good even if it's just MP3. For the money it's great. I didn't want to spend too much on a streamer yet as the technology is moving fast and this was great value at just over one hundred pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Find and great price! Firstly the product... The product is fantastic and was packaged well. The sound from The Yamaha - I'm using it though my Onkyo 9010 (that I bought from Richer Sounds ) I plug my iPhone 11 pro in. The sound comes out great with lovely bass!! The service I got from Richer sounds was excellent as well! Even during a pandemic!! So Congrats to them ! Thank you Marc Platman

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little bit of kit Really easy to set up and the app works seamlessly with my phone and existing steaming services. Having access to internet radio was a big reason for getting this and the choice and quality is excellent. Excellent way to update system to play and stream music for next to nothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I haven’t used a proper hifi for 5 years, and have been using a Bose bluetooth speaker in the meantime. The sound of iTunes tracks sounds so much better now. It’s how I remember music sounding in the past. The only criticisms are that the set up process wasn’t obvious (I had to hardwire it to the router) and even since then it doesn’t work over Wi-fi so I have to use a powerline adapter to ensure it’s hardwired to the router.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great I needed a couple of goes to get this unit connected but once I managed it, it was easy to use. You don't have to use the Yamaha app and l prefer HiFiCast. But overall the unit sounds great via my early 90s Technics amp (from Richer Sounds obviously) and even older B&O speakers.
Date published: 2020-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A simple way to stream good sound Takes a little bit of setting up, connecting to wifi etc but then it's a doddle to use. Sound quality is not far off a cd on a good player. But all the stuff I don't have on cd I can now play through my best amp and speakers. Very worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pity about the app. This is a neat unit, easy to accommodate in most systems. So close to being a great way to enable older stereo/hi-fi systems to stream music. So close because it is badly let down by one of the worst apps ever. Setting up was a pain, but I stuck with it and eventually got it working. The app, MusicCast, is not 100% reliable occasionally just stopping. This seems to necessitate turning it off and back on again. MusicCast does not display the track/album information that is available from the streaming service. MusicCast does not support gapless play. Pity. Would have rated it higher but for the app.
Date published: 2020-03-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent little streamer Got this to stream to an old amp rather than as part of a house wide MusicCast setup. For both wireless and Bluetooth streaming it works a treat. Features Apple Airplay but not Airplay 2 though don’t know if this is a future firmware option. Pretty easy to setup once I’d temporarily turned off Wi-Fi extenders. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small in size and quality of sound is amazing use this with Rotel ra01 and denon speakers in bed room. Sound quality is amazing and it doesn't take up much space. got rid of cd player. Spend much more on Marant Streamer, now thinking may sell Marantz to save some space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound. Good value streaming device and good quality. Easy to set up.
Date published: 2019-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! It brings your wifi to your hifi. I've setup a NAS media (Synology DS418) and now I can stream my music collection (FLAC or MP3) to my Marantz amp. Easy-ish setup. App on your phone is a little basic - no search option to find an artist or track, so you have to navigate through categories such as Artist, and then scroll and scroll to find what you want.
Date published: 2019-11-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonable price, good sound, unobtrusive. It was difficult getting the Yamaha onto my network, then getting it to link with my Amazon Echo Dot, and with Spotify. I was on the verge of giving up, but eventually cracked it - I can now just ask Alexa to play music through my Hi Fi system, and am really pleased with the quality of the sound. It's certainly as good, if not better than direct from my CD player (I have a Marantz PM 6005 Amp and matching CD 6005). The stereo sound stage seems wider and well defined. It has probably rendered the CD player obsolete, for a fraction of the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 'starter' streamer I wanted to add internet streaming services to my much cherished system of separates but was reluctant to spend too much as I was not sure how much I would use streaming. I have to say that at this price (£119 paid) it is an absolute bargain. Sound quality of the free Spotify service is reasonable, though admittedly below CD quality, but radio reception via the internet is fine. Should I choose to subscribe to a streaming service in due course, I would be confident that sound quality would improve. Highly recommended if you want to try streaming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to try streaming at minimal cost As old timer hifi enthusiast (Linn, Naim etc) found this little box to be a cost effective way to taste digital streaming to decide whether to invest in expensive hifi streamer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Reasonably priced and discreet streaming device brings my old stero system up to date.
Date published: 2019-11-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great Much better sound than just connecting your device (in my case an iPhone) direct to an amp with a cable. Also noticeably better for listening to Apple Music than hooking up an Amazon Dot to the amp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent streamer for non connected HiFi The WXAD10 is an excellent addition to any non connected HIFI sytem, enabling streaming from NAS drive, or from subscription streaming services, It is simple to use, once set up. Setting up is not quite as straight forward, as it should have been, and the app created for Yamaha, only really works on Android, Not Windows 10, although it can be made to work it's not straight forward. I have no idea if it work on Apple, as I have no Apple devices, 3rd party apps may work, but so far I have found them to be unpredictable. Now that's out of the way, and listening starts, the sound from 192/24 audio files is excellent, there is depth and width to the image, and music flows natuarally, wihout emphasis on any part of the audio spectrum, It is detailed and enjoyable to listen to, it is also cabale of improving the sound from some copied CD's, as I upsample them to 192khz, 24bit, Given the price, this device deserves recommendation, if set up was easier, a 5 star rating would have received, if your system is already good, but lacks digital connectivity, this litlle device is a perfect addition, the next step up from this would be a dedicated streaming reciever / tuner, at 3 or 4 times the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin! Tried one out and then bought another - set-up with hifi , downloaded Musiccast app and could play music through them straight away. Have both with a cable connection to the broadband so no wifi problems. They are neat and unobtrusive. Can play from an SD card in phone or streaming. Just got a NAS drive and will be loading that with my music files soon. Tip - connect using the mini jack rather than the phono cables and you can then control the volume from the app. Strangely not available from the shop but only online!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good sound Bought to stream music to my hi fi. I did my research on the internet and this model had good reviews. My system includes a Nait naim amp and Bowers and Wilkins C9 speakers. At first I considered a more high end DAC but thought I would trust the reviews. It is plug and play. I opted for the wired connection to my network rather than wifi. I downloaded the music cast app onto my Ipad and launched it. The combination of DAC, app and Ipad worked seamlessly. The DAC was detected and the app is easy to use. Whether it was Spotify connect, music on my device or lossless on my Imac via Apples Home sharing it all just worked. No connection issues at all. As regards the sound that is a matter of taste and of course equipment. All I can say is for me it is excellent. The predecessor to this DAC was an Arcam bought many years ago. This one matches its quality. In conclusion if you want a DAC for streaming then I would highly recommend it. The app is excellent and integrates well with Apple. I tried it on my Android phone. Again, perfect. Very good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and options I bought it 2 weeks ago in the London Holborn store and got a great service by Judy. This tiny Yamaha device is connected to an Arcam alpha amp and to Neat Iota speakers. I'm happy with the results, it gives great options and I already used it to listen to Radio, Spotify and Tidal. When I tried to play from from my NAS server I could only get MP3 files to play but no the flac ones. I find a greater user experience to use it with Spotify rather than with Tidal, while couldn't notice a difference between the two although on paper Tidal should give better sound quality. I highly recommend it, especially when considering affordable the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up even for a technophobe like me Been meaning to buy this for a while but kept putting it off as not very good with these types of device really glad I took the plunge makes listening to all sorts of things much easier
