MusicCast

MusicCast makes it easy to bring music to every room in your home wirelessly with playback controlled by a simple app. Start with a single MusicCast wireless speaker then add more throughout the house. Next add a MusicCast capable AV receiver in your main entertainment room for the ultimate home theater experience, sound bars or Hi-Fi components in other rooms wirelessly.

MusicCast Expands Entertainment Possibilities

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 external devices such as a TV or CD player connected to the audio system. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected devices can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.

Precision Plus Musicality. This Is the HiFi Tuning Concept

Inheriting all the precision of the classic NS-10M studio monitor, the NX-N500 is a modern monitor that boasts musical expressiveness exceeding its class. By repeatedly evaluating the tuning of the left and right speakers at 2 to 3m audition position intervals, it achieves stereophonic expression that liberates the true feeling of the music. Smooth and immediate vocals, a sense of the body of the melody instrument, a solid backbone to the sound and high density audio data. This is Yamaha’s answer to the demand for powered speakers capable of handling hi-res sound.

The New Standard in Powered Speakers

Nowadays you want to get the most from the music on your PCs and other devices, not just your audio system. Our concept is that speakers should produce real listening pleasure. An analog amp with expansive sound. An all-new speaker unit for fully appreciating high resolution sound sources. Featuring full-spec USB DAC, and compatible with Bluetooth®, WiFi and other network systems. Why only be able to listen to music close to your desktop computer or TV? Make them your second HiFi system. Your ears have learned to tell the difference. Let them. A compact 2-way from Yamaha.

Discrete Configuration Analog Amplifier and Bi-Amp Drive Produce Sound with a Spectacular Feeling of Freedom

The power amplifier component, critical to powered speakers, utilizes a discrete configuration analog amplifier. It produces strong, expansive sound, all in a bi-amp system featuring a 45W woofer and 25W tweeter. By directly driving each unit individually, it produces powerful sound while maintaining the feeling of high S/N ratio.

Balanced Transmission and Balanced Connection Thoroughly Eliminate Sound Quality Degradation Due to Noise

In principle, balanced transmission cancels the external noise that becomes mixed with the signal during transmission. In these speakers, all digital audio input signals undergo balance conversion in the L-channel speaker before being transmitted to the R-channel speaker. XLR cable is used to establish balanced connection between speakers. This approach thoroughly eliminates noise.

3cm Dome Tweeter for High Resolution Reproduction and A-PMD 13cm Woofer Unit

With a 2-way, 2-speaker configuration, the NX-N500 utilizes a 3cm dome tweeter capable of handling 40kHz high bandwidth playback in order to reproduce the rich amount of audio information unique to hi-res sound sources. And by incorporating a thick waveguide it achieves smooth and accurate high frequency reproduction. The woofer employs the same New Advanced PMD diaphragm used in the high-grade Soavo model. With deeply expressive power to its low frequencies and comfortably relaxed high frequencies that feel free of peaks, the NX-N500 triumphs over both highs and lows.

Rigid Enclosure Specially Designed to Suppress Unwanted Resonance

The enclosure employs thick MDF with high rigidity to produce uniform acoustic characteristics, and features the total three-way mitered-joint construction traditionally used in Yamaha high-end speakers. Suppressing unwanted resonance and highly accurate, it helps ensure that you’ll hear sound with an outstanding sense of resolution.

High-Grade USB DAC Supports DSD 5.6MHz Native Resolution and PCM 384kHz/32-bit for High Resolution Reproduction

The NX-N500’s high performance USB DAC is a full-spec PCM 384kHz/32-bit unit with support for DSD 5.6MHz native resolution. It is compatible with asynchronous transmission and can perform low-jitter transmission by using its own master clock, without being affected by the PC clock. It also makes use of an ASIO driver, it achieves lower latency and higher throughput and along with Windows PC compatibility, it’s also compatible with MAC OS Integer Mode, allowing 32-bit playback even in MAC OS.

Exceptionally High Performance ESS 32-bit D/A Converter

The D/A converter for the NX-N500 is the ES9010K2M from ESS Technology, Inc. not only itshigh precision processing of 32-bit audio, but also the ability to handle large amounts of audio data with full PCM 384kHz, DSD 5.6MHz native reproduction, strength in the low register, and high quality definition in the high register. Since the built-in D/A converter generates its own master clock, an original Jitter Elimination function is also included, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter.

Bluetooth Output for Convenient Music Streaming

Equipped with Bluetooth technology, you can stream music from the MusicCast wireless speaker to Bluetooth enabled headphones for private listening or any other compatible speaker.

Easy setup with your smartphone or tablet

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.

Streaming Services Offer a Huge Range of Listening Choices

Support for the music streaming services Spotify, Pandora, Juke, Napster, Rhapsody and Sirius XM means you’ll enjoy a wide variety of music content. Furthermore, support for the vTuner radio station database enables sampling of Internet radio broadcasts from around the world.

Indicator Displays the Speaker’s Operating Status and Playback Sound Source

The front of the speaker provides an LED display indicator color coded by operating status: orange for ECO Standby mode, green for network function, pink for AirPlay and sky blue for USB DAC, allowing easy, making it very easy to confirm the music source currently selected.
