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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound but not as simple to work as I’d hoped It’s good quality but I can’t just switch on the radio. I have to find net radio and then search is at the bottom and then I have to find the radio station I want and then select. I’m sure there is a way to pre-select and save but haven’t worked out what that is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all-rounder, plenty of connectivity options Bought this to replace a musiccast bar 40 which sounded terrible. This speaker is a massive improvement with more bass and clearer sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking bit of kit Extremely happy with this speaker Had to go for WiFi option as Bluetooth isn't great where I live Very easy to set up and highly recommended by the staff at your Sheffield store Definitely 10/10
