Yamaha MusicCast 50 WX051 (Black)
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.
