njoy your music wirelessly with the white Yamaha MusicCast 50 Wireless Speaker. It features Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay, Wi-Fi, and Spotify Connect technologies to connect to nearly any wireless component in your home. The speaker also has an Ethernet port for wired network connectivity. It has two 1" tweeters, two 4" woofers, and a bass reflex port to help create an immersive soundstage.
Beatles in the bedroom? Bach in the bath? Get all of your music, wherever and whenever you want with Yamaha’s multi-room wireless MusicCast system. The MusicCast 50, one of the legendary audio and instrument maker’s latest line of multi-room systems, combines acoustic excellence with infinite versatility. A single speaker supplies surprisingly satisfying stereo, or pair two (and the MusicCast Sub, coming soon) for a solid sat-sub stereo system. Tap into the major online music services, or access your own digital collection. Control it all from your phone or pad with a simple app, or ask Alexa to do it for you.
Yamaha has added a new capability to its latest MusicCast line: wireless surround sound. Just add one MusicCast 50 (it’s stereo!) and wired front and center speakers to Yamaha’s RX-V685,RX-V585 or RX-V485 receivers, and get solid 5.1 surround without the usual tripping hazard. For still fuller sound, use two rear speakers. (Note that MusicCast Surround capability is not compatible with earlier equipment.)
An optical digital input turns your MusicCast 50 into a TV sound system. A 3.5mm phone jack lets you attach your legacy analog equipment. If it’s near a router, run a length of CAT-5 cable to connect to your home network. All those, plus Apple AirPlay, audio-quality Bluetooth and dual-band Wi-Fi, means that however you’re equipped, wherever you stash your sound, the MusicCast 50 is your hookup.
The MusicCast Controller app (free, for Apple or Android) puts access to that grand jukebox in the clouds right in the palm of your hand. Stream via Spotify Connect, Pandora, Tidal, Deezer, Napster and more (subscriptions may be required), and access hundreds of free Internet radio stations. Or hook into the home network server to queue up your own tune collection. And the MusicCast system handles today’s higher-resolution music files, up to 192kHz/24 bit in most lossless formats, for the finest listening experience.
Control the sound in every room, choose from among all your sources, pick favorites and hide lesser-used ones, pipe the same music to all your speakers or direct different tunes to each – the MusicCast Controller app is highly customizable and intuitive. The MusicCast 50 has a great bedside manner as well, with alarm-clock and three “favorites” buttons along the top edge. And with integration with Amazon’s intelligent Alexa, you get voice-control of the MusicCast system via any Echo device.
You’d expect no less than the finest reproduction from a speaker engineered by Yamaha. And the MusicCast 50 delivers, with dual 3-7/8” low-frequency drivers and soft-dome 1-1/8” tweeters, driven by a custom-designed 35 watt-per-channel stereo amp. One compact, stylish and unobtrusive speaker (in your choice of white or black) fills nearly any room in your home with that satisfyingly big Yamaha sound.
