Retro Modern with Superior Quality
The simple design allows the Yamaha WXC-50 to seamlessly integrated with your existing audio system. Featuring a high-quality metal body and two-tone colouring, Yamaha's attention to detail extends to the exterior and ensures an enjoyable listening experience.
Outstanding Sound, All the Time
Thanks to Yamaha's superior sound processing technologies, the WXC-50 ensures you can enjoy great sound from all your music sources - regardless of their quality, or your listening environment, or the kind of speakers you're using. When listening to audio from smartphones or other compressed sources, the Compressed Music Enhancer greatly improves the sound at all frequency levels. The Volume adaptive EQ automatically adjusts the bass/treble balanced according to the volume level. Additionally, the Advanced Bass Extension provides a deeper low-end sound - ideal for compact or in-wall speakers. Finally, the Direct Mode allows you to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are without any processing.
The WXC-50 benefits from Yamaha's advanced audio technologies and circuit designs. The preamp circuitry minimises digital jitter while utilising the same high performance ESS DAC that is found in high-end AV receivers. The proprietary power supply ground configuration - called DAC on Pure Ground - ensures that the power supply will never negatively affect sound quality. Additionally, the incredibly rigid metal chassis provides the stability needed for power, crystal-clear music reproduction.
If you want to adjust the volume from the Hi-Fi amp or AV receiver, the Yamaha WXC-50 allows you to turn of Pre Amp mode and use the device as a simple network audio player. Switching to Player mode bypasses the volume control and any processing for direct playback of high-resolution audio.
MusicCast makes it easy to bring music to every room in your house - It simply connects to your existing wi-fi network and provides you with the ability to wirelessly stream audio to any room in your house. Any MusicCast system can be easily extended to meet your needs, with a wide range of products available including AV receivers, hi-fi systems and wireless speakers. For example; Start with a MusicCast capable wireless amplifier in your main entertainment room, then add in a MusicCast sound projector for the ultimate home theatre experience and add MusicCast wireless speakers or hi-fi components into other rooms, link them all together wirelessly and experience sound like never before.
MusicCast allows you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth® or AirPlay®, as well as giving you the ability to play/pause and adjust the volume all from within the simple and intuitive MusicCast app. The MusicCast app also gives you the ability to select what music plays in each room, link and combine music from one room to another, have different music playing in each room, or join them together have the same music playing all around your house.
