About Yamaha MusicCast 50 Wireless Speaker

Yamaha have been a leader in the music industry for over a century and when they do things they do it right. Multi-room music is big business and we're all listening to music more often and in more places than ever before and so it was only a matter of time before Yamaha entered the market. The great thing with the range of MusicCast products including the MusicCast 50 is that it is easy and very affordable to enjoy music anywhere around your home. More importantly though is that it delivers rich, detailed and clear sound. Naturally Yamaha have covered all the important bases and made sure that the MusicCast 50 works easily with the complete family of MusicCast products including their market leading AV Receivers. Not only does MusicCast allow you to choose from different sources including popular streaming sources like Spotify but also Internet radio and of course your personal digital music library. Even high-resolution audio formats are supported!

Amazon Alexa Integration: Voice control seems to be all the rage these days (pity it doesn't work very well on humans) and Yamaha have taken the opportunity with the new MusicCast speaker range to offer compatibility with one of the best methods in the form of Amazon Alexa. Alexa is capable of voice interaction, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic, sports, and other real-time information, such as news. Oh, and it also allows you to play your music just by asking. Not everyone is going to love using voice commands to control their music streamers but it certainly seems to be the way these types of products are going. All you need is an Amazon Alexa product such as the Echo Dot (available separately) to enable voice control with your MusicCast 50. Try it, you might like it.

Wireless Surround Sound: The MusicCast 50 lets you say goodbye to speaker wires with its ability to wirelessly connect via Bluetooth® or over Wi-Fi with Airplay®. For home theatre use the MusicCast 50 can be paired with select ‘MusicCast Surround’ enabled products such as AV receivers and Soundbars and used as wireless rear speakers (either singularly or in pairs), meaning no more nasty speaker wires messing up your pristine living room.

MusicCast - The Game Has Changed!

MusicCast is a new revolution in network audio, it employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from external devices such as a TV or Bluray Disc player connected to the MusicCast 50. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms. In addition to the MusicCast 50 featured here, you can use a compatible Yamaha soundbar, AV Receiver or Hi-Fi component, whichever suits you best, mix and match them and then expand your MusicCast system as time goes on.

Richer Sound & Deeper Bass In A Compact Package

The amazing sound is thanks to the two-way four speaker stereo design coupled with Yamaha's DSP magic. Two 100mm bass drivers are the secret ingredient that enables deep bass to be produced from such a compact unit. High-quality formats such as WAV, FLAC and ALAC are also fully supported. From pop to rock - everything sounds as it should.

Easy Setup With Your Smartphone Or Tablet

As mentioned above, you can use your smartphone or tablet together with the MusicCast CONTROLLER app to operate the speaker and change settings quickly and easily. The same Controller app functions as a remote control for all your MusicCast-compatible devices too.

MusicCast App: The free MusicCast app puts control of your whole home listening experience in the palm of your hand from either your Apple iOS or Android device. You'll be able to quickly select the room or rooms you want to listen to music in, select the source or sources you want to listen to, browse music content from your music library and online music services or Internet Radio, plus control music playback functions.

Favourites: Internet radio stations, content from select online music services, plus playlists and songs from your network-connected device's music library can be saved as "Favourites" for quick recall within the MusicCast app.

Sound Settings: You can adjust the speaker's 3-band EQ (High/Mid/Low) from the app on your Apple iOS or Android device for a more personalised sound.

Personalisation & Customisation: With the app's unique personalisation features, you can choose from pre-loaded room images or change the colour of buttons to represent each room in the home, or even take pictures of your own home and assign the images to each button. The content source buttons can also be customised to rename, remove or reorder selections for easier operation.

Our Take

The MusicCast 50 takes all the great features of past Yamaha wireless smart speakers and upgrades the sound and the smarts. One of the most useful features for home theatre uses the MusicCast 50's ability to be paired with select MusicCast Surround’ enabled products such as AV receivers and Soundbars and used as wireless rear speakers, meaning no more nasty speaker wires messing up your pristine living room. Two MusicCast 50's can also be stereo paired to give even more lifelike sound and great dynamics in an extremely room & spouse friendly package.
