From streaming music to wireless rear AV speakers, the Yamaha MusicCast 20 speaker matches quality with flexibility.

Multi-room, MusicCast

The Yamaha MusicCast 20 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.

Voice control via Alexa
With Amazon’s hugely popular Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. “Alexa, ask MusicCast to play Favourite 1 in the kitchen”, is all you need to say to get the music started.

Music streaming services. Sorted
Getting the MusicCast 20 (also known as Yamaha WX-021) to play your music is easy. Compatible with Spotify Premium, Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Pandora and Napster, all of the major providers are covered. Simply sync with your smartphone or tablet and you’re good to go.

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.

Find your favourites, with three presets
Finding your favourite Internet radio stations can be a chore, which is why the MusicCast 20 has three, soft touch, presets at the top of the device. Store and recall at the touch of a button.

Pair up for stereo sound
Use the MusicCast app and you can pair up two MusicCast 20 speakers for stereo sound. Perfect in larger rooms or wherever you prefer a more immersive, stereo sound, this function doubles the ability of this already impressive speaker.

Use as wireless rear speakers
Another great feature with these flexible speakers is the ability to use them as wireless rear speakers. Simply pair with a compatible Yamaha MusicCast AV receiver, connect to the mains supply and cut out the speaker cable to the rear speakers – perfect for when you’ve hard floor coverings that accept cable underneath.

Powerful sound
A two-way speaker system gives a crisp, clear sound, throughout the frequency range. With twin ABRs (Auxiliary Bass Radiator) either side of the unit the bass is also powerful enough to easily fill most rooms.

Compact design that can be wall mounted
With its compact dimensions and unobtrusive design, the MusicCast 20 goes just where you want it. Use it on a desk, bedside table or kitchen worktop - the MusicCast 20 fits in almost anywhere. For even greater versatility, the speaker can be wall mounted via a simple keyhole slot fitting.

For a wireless speaker that does more, check out the Yamaha MusicCast 20.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buggy software / firmware I bought two of these from Richer for use as a stereo pair. The sound is good for the size, although the Musiccast app is rather clunky (see the reviews on Playstore) and could be much better. My main problem is a firmware or software bug. Specifically, when I use the sleep function to stop streaming, the next time they are started only the master player operates. Musiccast tells me that they are still paired in stereo, yet the "slave" player does not operate. I have to unpair and re-pair them to get stereo sound. This seems to be a consistent and repeatable fault.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and connectivity I bought two MusicCast speakers from Richer Sounds and wow! The tone of the sound is superb! Bass is strong, but not over powering, mid and treble are clear, really clear. In fact I heard sounds on a Bowie track that I'd not heard before. Connectivity is great, Bluetooth and WiFi through the MusicCast app work well. Wireless surround sound, via a Yamaha receiver is also really effective. My local Richer store was friendly and helpful and the price was the best I could find. Worth the cost without a doubt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good service, but! The item was sent in the manufactures packaging so had the couriers label stuck on, covered in finger prints (not great in these times!) and was generally dirty from being transported by courier. Not great as item was a present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable sound quality Bought to link up to existing Yamaha system bought again from richer sounds what a difference it was super clear sound Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another two added to the existing four... These two take the total up to six and fill a couple of distinct areas in the house. So the great tone and clarity is now fed throughout the house. Of course when different moods or different people want different music in rooms we can do that through the app. Great stuff and just what we were looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic speakers, great features. I purchased these to upgrade my home cinema. They are a really well made piece of kit. The sound is full and warm with a great bottom end. The power chord is long enough to not need to be right next to a socket. I bought a pair of speakers, they can link together in the MusicCast app and act as Bluetooth speakers or, link to a compatible av recover to act as wireless rear speakers. The only issue I’ve had is where the didn’t connect to the AV receiver once, a simple re-pair was needed. I would whole heartedly recommend buying a MusicCast 20

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful sound from compact design Really happy with the MusicCast 20. I bought two and they sound amazing from a compact design. I wanted the AirPlay connection and did not want a speaker with voice assistance or spying mic! Love the design and look great in both black and white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wireless connected speaker Really love this system. I have two MusicCast 20s set up in stereo in a bedroom. The speakers sound great and are well designed with nice attention to detail throughout the experience. I can bluetooth audio from my Android phone, AirPlay from an iPhone, and use internet radio and Spotify from both. Spotify works perfectly. Bluetooth audio is rock solid. Love the preset buttons, which I have set to internet radio stations. Love the alarm feature. The app is well designed and functions perfectly. Ideally the system would also support Android Casting, but the bluetooth works so well I don't really mind. The setup process is slightly more technical than a Sonos, but it's completely acceptable and I had no issues setting up at all. The app is very nice to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid piece of quality equipment. Lovely looking speaker - if a little larger (and much heavier) than I expected! Fabulous sound. The Musicast App is pretty good (but could be better :) - still it's the easiest (only!) way to set-up and run the kit. My first venture into 'smart' speaker land and so far, pretty good. Like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! Bought 2 weeks back to finish the set in the house, and provide rear speakers for the sound bar. Incredible

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice bit of kit I bought a pair of these as a first step to building a multi-room system. The Yamaha MusicCast app is really good, and easy to use (I've currently got two of these set up as a stereo pair), with plenty of scope for adding more speakers/ amps/ av receivers around the house. The sound is really nice, and although they don't go stupidly loud, they go as loud as I'm ever likely to want them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Quality Bought 4 speakers a few weeks back and I love how I can link and unlink them easily. looking to buy a master to hook them up to the TV next. They look really good too I bought 4 in black

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound, Compact and Versatile I bought this speaker as a treat for myself after redecorating the living room. Gone are the old wired speakers eith cable draped around the room! The new Yamaha WXA21 unit s very compact and now sits unobtrusively on a corner shelf. This does not comprimise the sound quality which is excellent in room measuring 5m by 4.5m. It also links up easily with the Music Cast system I bought 2 years ago. Can't fault it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mobile sound boost I bought a pair of these speakers primarily hoping to act as wireless rears for my Yamaha 2700 soundbar. They will link with the 2700 but don't act as rear speakers. That said they perform brilliantly as a stand alone stereo pair, used with phone, tablet or computer via bluetooth or through the musiccast control for internet radio. Only slight niggle is lack of connections (sd card or RCA cable or maybe usb)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acoustically very good Bought the MusicCast 20 add to my Yamaha CRX-N470D Network CD Receiver. I am delighted with the sound quality. This small speaker is capable of filling a room and the setup was very straight forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound...well made...easy to set up. Quality product with good clear sound for speech and different music genres.Bluetooth and Airplay available.3 presets enables you to set radio stations to essentially give you an internet radio.I have a Yamaha mini HIFi that uses MusicCast so you can control all the devices from your iPad,phone or laptop. Robust and heavy speaker is a domestic speaker not for portable use. Easy to set up initially. Good sales advise from Glasgow shop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good, sounds great! I bought a pair of these to sync to my MusicCast enabled system so i could listen through the house. They're a doddle to sync up and the App lets me play music where I need it but They also work very well as standalone units, allowing up to 6 music sources to be soft coded to each to access without the app. Sound quality is excellent and they look really good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small speakers big sound Speakers that work in conjunction with the internet. They are Wifi speakers that are connected to a yamaha internet receiver. They run as a wifi stereo system which sounds crisp and clear, though the bass was slightly lacking. Added a wifi Yamaha subwoofer which has set the system alive. This system works alongside the Yamaha musiccast app. which makes for easy streaming. The receiver also has cd and dab radio, so all basses covered. I have amazon music which I have now converted to HD. At first I had the Yamaha receiver as the prime connection but on musiccast it was difficult to connect to Amazon music. I had noticed that the speakers had Amazon as a standard connection on the musiccast app. I now have the speakers as the primary connection which allows access to the Amazon music directly from the net. Fantastic sound which I can control from my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound when used as stereo pair Originally bought two speakers with the intention of having one in each of two rooms. The sound was ok but there is a noticeable difference when using two in stereo mode. Took slightly longer to set up due to the lack of a manual (one is available online) but works well. Could be the way that I have added the speakers and the main unit into one room via MusicCast but one speakers comes in line a short while after the other. Slight annoying but no real hassle. Really enjoy the sound of these speakers which are certainly loud enough for a medium size room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, Compact, Quality speaker After months of looking into which route to go , we chose the music cast 20 to go along with out Yamaha Amp and extremely glad we went down that route . Great quality , fantastic sound and easy install really impressed us. We look forward to building up the system with more of the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item I have other Yamaha products with the MusicCast feature, this speaker however was to be used as a stand alone item. Setup is really simple, the quality and sound is better than most similar offerings on the market plus it has some really good features. Definitely a good buy.
