Yamaha WXA-50 integrated amplifier further expands the MusicCast range of wireless products, enabling streaming from multiple devices for an easy multi-room system.
This integrated amp supports Bluetooth, DLNA, Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect and is compatible with all other MusicCast products. The slim case design allows easy and flexible positioning vertically or horizontally in even the tightest of spaces without disturbing your decor. It is also suitable for rack mounting in custom installations. Thanks to 'one-push play', you can immediately power on and play your last selected source with a press of any button on the amplifier's front panel. With a power output of 65W per channel, the WXA-50 uses a rigid metal chassis and an ESS Sabre9006AS DAC for optimum performance.
Direct Mode is incorporated allowing you to play high-res audio sources (24-bit/96kHz or 24-bit/192kHz) without any additional processing along with a volume adaptive EQ that adjusts the bass and treble according to the volume level; Advanced Bass Extension for boosting bass when using smaller or in-wall speakers; and a Compressed Music Enhancer for improving sound quality when listening to compressed audio on smartphones and tablets. Connection is available via ethernet, USB, optical digital and analogue along with separate sub and analogue outputs. The Yamaha WXA-50 is compatible with the MusicCast controller app for smartphones and tablets.
MusicCast 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 connected external devices such as a TV or Blu-ray Disc player. Audio content from Bluetooth connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.
Play the same song in multiple rooms, or play different songs in each room. With MusicCast, freely enjoy the music you love anywhere in your home. You can hear all the music sources from your smartphone via wireless Bluetooth or AirPlay connection. You can play music from music apps, radio apps, or YouTube type video hosting services. The WXA-50 is compatible with all types of music sources and services, such as streaming services. Provided with various types of terminals for connecting a TV, CD player, computer and other AV equipment, you’ll be able to enjoy music from around the world throughout your home from just one component.
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. Pressing any button on the front panel turns the unit on and initiates playback of the previously selected source. You can also set the six numbered buttons on the remote control for your favourite network / USB sources, such as internet radio stations, NAS or USB stick albums or songs, then just press a button to instantly hear that station or song.
The simple design creates a stylish musical space and integrates beautifully with your audio system. With a high quality metal body and cool two-tone colouring, Yamaha’s fastidiousness extends to the exterior, for a completely enjoyable listening experience. Only 214 mm (8-3/8") wide, the compact body fits neatly in any space without drawing attention to itself. You can chose any convenient location, placing it horizontally or vertically, on its own or with other audio components.
Thanks to Yamaha’s superior sound processing technologies, you’ll enjoy great sound from all your music sources, no matter what 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. Volume-adaptive EQ automatically adjusts the bass / treble balance according to the volume level. Advanced Bass Extension provides a deeper, richer low-end sound — it’s great for compact or in-wall speakers. And a Direct Mode allows you to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are without any processing.
High Level Technologies
The WXA-50 reaps the benefits of Yamaha’s advanced audio technologies and circuit designs. The preamp circuitry, for example, minimises digital jitter and uses the same high performance ESS DAC that is found in high-end AV receivers. Yamaha’s proprietary power supply ground configuration, called DAC on Pure Ground, ensures that the power supply will never negatively affect sound quality. The 48-bit digital volume control provides much greater precision and quality that conventional digital or analogue controls. In addition, a highly rigid, metal chassis supplies the stability necessary for powerful, clear music reproduction.
WXA-50 supports a wide range of high res formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz, FLAC and WAV, AIFF 192 kHz / 24-bit, and ALAC (Apple Lossless) 96 kHz / 24-bit for iTunes. Whether from a music download site or streaming services, you can enjoy the full benefits of high resolution sound sources, for a feeling like you’re right inside a concert hall.
The WXA-50 consumes less than two watts of power in standby mode, When the power is on, power consumption is still a low 15 W, and even when used for long periods, power consumption is environmentally friendly. In addition, the Auto Power Down lets you save energy by having the power automatically turned off after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours.
The WXA-50 offers various custom installation functions, so by using several units it’s easy to create an extensive home audio system. With a width of 214 mm and height of 42 mm (without feet), this component will fit easily into a 1U (19-inch) rack.
