Don’t be fooled by its sleek good looks. The Yamaha MusicCast 50 produces a full-bodied sound with power to get any party started.

Powerful sound from a compact speaker

With its stereo, two-way speaker system coupled to Yamaha's DSP (Digital Sound Processor), the MusicCast 50 gives a full-range, room-filling sound. Because the MusicCast 50 uses 2-way speakers, you get crisp, detailed treble from the twin tweeters, a natural mid-range and deep, powerful bass. Yamaha's Music Enhancer improves the sound of poor quality MP3 recordings, helping the music sound clearer and more natural.

Hi-Res Audio playback
At the heart of the Yamaha's digital processing is a top quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This not only provides punchy and lifelike sound but also facilitates the playback of High Resolution audio formats. The MusicCast 50 is compatible with a wide range of HD audio formats, including FLAC/WAV/AIFF files up to 192kHz-24-bit for exceptional sound quality.

The MusicCast difference
The Yamaha MusicCast 50 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. *Amazon Echo or similar required for voice control.

All your favourite Music streaming services
Getting the MusicCast 50 (also known as Yamaha WX-051) 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.

Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay as standard
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.

Connect up your TV and other music devices for a big uplift in sound
Featuring a digital optical input, most TVs can be plugged into the MusicCast 50 for a big upgrade in sound. Banish thin and boxy sound from your TV for good. Also included are 3.5mm and RCA AUX inputs. These are ideal for plugging in music sources such as a turntable (with phono pre-amp built-in) and CD player.

Find your favourites, with three presets
Finding your favourite Internet radio stations can be a chore, which is why the MusicCast 50 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 50 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.

A powerful speaker that’s the heart of your system, the Yamaha MusicCast 50 gives you more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kitchen speaker This amplified speaker boast many inputs. Obviously it will playback via Musiccast. There is also a RCA input, a mini plug, an optical input and bluetooth. How does it sound. Well initially terrible! I placed the unit on a corner shelf in the kitchen. As I found out the default setting is all tone setting in the middle with bass boost on. All I could hear was a muddled bass. With the help of my son, we found where the tonal control was in the MusicCast app. After switching off the bass boost, the treble to high and bass to low, the speaker sounded a lot better. We also found that putting the speaker in the corner was not optimal: Crouching a meter distance from the centre of the speaker gives the best sound. Not an option in my case. Volume can be controlled from the speaker, no need to grab the smart phone all the time. I still feel bigger is better for speakers. The Yamaha is relative small. A set-up with two satellite speakers and a subwoofer probable sounds better, but would not physically fit in my case. Which brings me to portability. Size wise it easy to move around, however it is mains powered. Conclusion, I am happy with the speaker, good sound, good price and not too big. Please read up on MusicCast, to see all the possibilities of playback.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Music for the masses Great sound and very sturdy bit of kit. It needs to come with a remote control especially for volume control. The app you need to install on your phone is rubbish to be honest. Not intuitive to set up either. Almost too much faff, even for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice This speaker amazed us with the sound and clarity it produces. Still learning all its capabilities but this is an exceptional buy, we were hesitant due to the price but its a long term investment that will last its time, highly recommend the speaker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service My customer service guy John was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. Due to coronavirus our delivery was delayed so I called up, got John and he remembered me two weeks later which made the whole experience feel very personalised. Everyone I spoke to were clearly passionate about sound equipment and it showed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, little fiddly to use We recently got this and have found that it does what we want and has a nice sound quality. Given 4 stars not 5 as i havent really worked out how to get the best from it yet and there doesnt seem to be a comprehensive set of instructions that come with it or on line that really goes in to details for the slightly un techhy of us as to how to get it functioning to its best capabilities. And as it relies on apps/ phones can be a bit clunky in getting it to play things as need to connect to blue tooth and go through the various apps that you need. However does sound nice and so far been using it for spotify and radio mainly and that all been coming out nicely

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sound particularly considering the size Had a little difficulty with set-up but this was entirely down to my confusion over home networks. The help on the phone which I got from the store solved that and I am very glad I bought this speaker.
