Hi-Fi sound quality with wireless network speaker convenience; the Yamaha NXN500 offers a unique balance of abilities.

Active speakers for amp-free listening

Although they look like normal speakers, with built-in amplification, there's no need for a separate amplifier. Containing bi-amps, these speakers are more than capable of filling a room with music. Simply plug the active speaker into the mains and connect the other speaker via an umbilical cord and you're good to go.

Top quality sound
Yamaha have put a great deal of effort into making these active speakers sound as good as they can. The discrete amplifier is a bi-amp design, powering the treble units and bass units individually. This gives effortless control and total precison, making the music sound more realistic than ever. Balanced conversion and transmission to the passive speaker thoroughly eliminates noise and interference, ensuring a balanced sound between left and right channels.

High resolution sound via USB
Connect up to your computer via USB and you can stream High Resolution music files for the very best in sound quality. High Resolution Audio support for file sizes up to 24bit/192kHz provides a much more detailed and smoother sound than CD (16bit/44.1kHz). The difference between Hi Res music and typical MP3/ACC compressed music files is even greater, with Hi Res music offering a deeper and wider sound stage, more precise imaging and, above all, a far greater sense of realism.

Choose your file type
There's a wide selection of downloadable Hi Res music already available, plus you may already have a collection on your computer. For this reason, the Yamaha supports a wide range of Hi Res file formats, including DSD 5.6MHz (DSD128), WAV, FLAC and AIFF (up to 24bit/192kHz) and ALAC at up to 24bit/96kHz.

MusicCast for music all around your home
The Yamaha NXN500 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.

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.

Wi-Fi and DLNA for effortless streaming
Also standard with the NXN500 is Wi-Fi, giving easy connection to your home network. A DLNA certified connection makes streaming a breeze. You can access your stored music from PC, laptop or NAS drive and listen to Internet radio stations and music services such as Spotify and Napster.

For networking speakers that don't compromise on sound, the Yamaha NXN500s are the perfect solution.
