"If you're looking for a two-channel amplifier for music listening then the WXA-50 will certainly fit the bill." 'AVforums - Recommended'

MusicCast for music all around your home

The Yamaha WXA50 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.

Wi-Fi with Spotify and AirPlay
Connect via Ethernet or wi-fi to your home network and gain access to a whole new world of entertainment. From here you'll be able to access a massive range of Internet radio stations plus music services such as the hugely popular Spotify and Naspter. Also standard is AirPlay, making it easier than ever to stream from your Apple iOS devices.

Stream music from your mobile with Bluetooth
With a Bluetooth receiver built in, it's easy to enjoy your music from other devices. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC and wirelessly stream all your favourite music. With the possibility of streaming music services, such as Spotify Premium, Deezer and Tidal, as well as your own music library, you get access to near unlimited music!

Compatible with High Resolution music files
The Yamaha WXA50 makes a superb choice for listening to your High Resolution music files. It's compatible with WAV/FLAC 192kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless 96kHz/24-bit, DSD 5.6MHz and even the new AIFF 192kHz/24-bit formats. Using a high quality ESS DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor), the sound is sensationally detailed.

Powerful sound
It might be small, but the WXA50 uses a 55 watt amplifier and powerful processing to great effect. If you're listening to compressed music files from an MP3 player or smartphone, Compressed Music Enhancer enhances the frequency response for a brighter, more open sound. The clever volume-adaptive feature automatically adjusts the bass and treble levels in line with the volume. Advanced bass extension gives a deeper bass that's ideal for when matching with smaller speakers. Finally, if you'd rather hear the music exactly as the producer intended, Direct Mode bypasses all processing for the purest sound possible.

Wire it in with USB, optical or RCA phono
As well as the wide range of wireless connectivity, the WXA50 also features a USB interface plus optical and RCA phono inputs. The USB socket is ideal for USB stick devices while the phono inputs let you hook up a traditional Hi-Fi source such as a CD player or turntable with built-in pre-amp. The optical input is ideal for connecting your TV or Blu-ray/DVD player.

Compact and stylish
More router than conventional amplifier-sized, the WXA-50 can easily be accommodated; it can even be turned on its side for really tight spaces. The rigid casework is made to Yamaha's usual high standards and, with 1U rack mounting capability, ideal for professional use.

For one of the finest and most flexible music streaming systems around, just add speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly full-featured I bought this amp to drive a pair of Q Acoustics 3020i, and quickly learned why it won several awards. I attached a smart television running Kodi to it (via toslink) so that it will assume the function of a media hub, but the amp also has wifi AND bluetooth to create ad-hoc connections (as well as several other types of input, including USB) so whatever your needs may be, it has you covered. Sound quality is excellent, and it handles equally well classical music, opera and heavy metal; it's also the only amp i've heard so far through which mp3s are actually listenable. Its network functionality is absolutely first class as well as rock solid, so now I can send music to the amp with my pc, tablet and desktop over wifi, which means it plays CD quality sound losslessly. it also means that if there is an incoming call the speakers continue playing the music, rather than the device's ringtone. in addition, *ALL* of the amp's settings can be controlled by any device capable of running a web browser, and the amp has MAC filtering functionality to restric access only to your devices. in short, it's a little treasure jam packed with functionality that's just as capable of creating a fun atmosphere as the best out there. the amp has a single shortcoming: No NFC. this would have been the cherry on top of an already vast spec sheet. In any case, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact amplifier Was looking for a small form factor integrated amplifier with as small footprint as possible, initially gravitated towards Cyrus One, Rega Brio and Quad Veena. After some weeks researching and visiting outlets i came across this little gem, glad i went with Yamaha this time. Excellent balance between power, features, I/O, build quality at a more competitive price tag. Not sure how Yamaha squeezed all these features in such inconspicuous package but they certainly nailed it. Build quality is exceptional- even down to the premium speaker terminals - while audio performance is on par with pricier alternatives. Installation and set up was swift and painless, bluetooth and multicast work like a charm with all my devices/sources. In fact, i have been so impressed with this machine, i am seriously considering purchasing a second unit for home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smallest most capable unit available? I was looking for a small but capable amplifier, ideally with Internet or DAB radio. I first bought the Tangent Ampster which was half the price of this Yamaha WXA50, however it was half as capable and sadly used the same frequently as our LG television (so watch out for that!). The Yamaha was a replacement andit's a great unit. It does everything I want it to and it integrates Spotify and Deezer pretty well. Airplay is excellent and FLAC via USB works seamlessly too. The MusicCast app is nice to use but I hope it will improve over time just to further improve the integration between streaming services and the app. The remote is pretty good despite what I've read in reviews.
