Our take on the Yamaha YWA-10

by Marshall Chase
Yamaha

Use your Wi-Fi® network to get more from your Internet-ready Yamaha receiver

This Wi-Fi® adapter gives you a convenient way to connect your networking Yamaha receiver to your home PC network. Unleash Apple AirPlay® to stream your iTunes® library wirelessly from your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®. Free downloadable apps also let you use these devices or your Android™ smartphone or tablet as a convenient Wi-Fi remote. Take advantage of all the network audio streaming functions of your Yamaha receiver, without having to stretch a network cable to your system.

Convenient setup and more

The Yamaha YWA-10 connects automatically to your wireless home network. If you prefer, it can be tweaked to your liking using your PC. To get started, just connect to the Ethernet and USB ports on the back of your Yamaha network receiver. The YWA-10 is powered via USB so there is no need to take up an outlet on your already full surge protector. The YWA-10 even has a second Ethernet output that can be used to provide network access to another device such as a smart TV or Blu-ray player. The YWA-10 connects to the Ethernet (RJ-45) port on the back of the Yamaha network A/V receiver and communicates directly with your wireless router

Features

Overview: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter can be used to connect a 2012-up Yamaha network A/V receiver to your wireless home network. The YWA-10 connects to the Ethernet (RJ-45) port on the back of the Yamaha network A/V receiver and communicates directly with your wireless router. It's powered by the rear-panel DC Out/USB type-A port (5V/0.5A) of the receiver, so there is no need to take up an additional electrical outlet. The YWA-10 even has a second Ethernet (RJ-45) output that can be used to provide network access to another device such as a Smart TV or Blu-ray player.

Yamaha Receiver Compatibility: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is compatible with 2012 Yamaha network A/V receivers that feature a rear-panel Ethernet (RJ-45) port and rear-panel DC Out/USB type-A port (5V/0.5A). Current compatible Yamaha A/V receivers include (as of 6/13/2013):

  • RX-V Series: 475, 575, 675, 775 (already included with the RX-V775), 673, 773 (already included with the RX-V773)
  • RX-A (Aventage) Series: 730, 830, 1030, 2030, 3030, 720, 820, 1020, 2020, 3020

Note: The Yamaha YWA-10 can also be used with other network components that feature a rear-panel Ethernet (RJ-45 port), but will require a USB-to-AC power adapter (sold separately).

WiFi Connectivity: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is WiFi IEEE 802.11b/g/n compatible over a 2.4GHZ frequency and supports WPS (WiFi Protected Setup).

Dual LAN Ports: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is equipped with two Ethernet (RJ-45) ports. One is used to connect your compatible 2012 Yamaha network A/V receiver, while the other can be connected to a second network source; such as a Smart TV or Blu-ray player.

USB Powered: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is powered by the rear-panel USB type-A port (5V/0.5A) of your 2012-up Yamaha network A/V receiver; so no additional electrical outlet is needed. Power is supplied to the YWA-10 when the connected Yamaha receiver is powered "On".  The YWA-10 can be powered even if the Receiver is powered 'Off", when the receiver is set to "Network Standby" mode.

Note: Do not connect the included USB power cable to a USB hub.

ywa-10

Written By don, ct on Wednesday, August 06, 2014
 
product since purchase been a pain to keep connected. did not set up with wps, instructions for set up guaranteed to lead you into confusion and missteps if you can even get the set up site to load. in this site it will ask you for info that you wont understand or have no idea how to find with no help from instructions (what is a shared key code and where do you find it?-and what about ip addresses? the address shown in yamaha reciever info screen doesnt work). customer support-yamaha- not much help after long wait. they would rather blame router even though other wireless devices working fine. paid around a $100 to have tech establish connectivity firs time and he didnt even know how he did it. with reset of router cant reconnect. nice when it worked but near impossible to achieve connectivity
Pros:
once connected very convenient
Cons:
connectivity a matter of luck

Horrible product

Written By JeffN, Frisco tx on Friday, May 30, 2014
 
Don't bother with this. I spent 3 hours to get it to work. Once it worked it is flaky and keeps dropping connections. Constantly having to unplug my router, this thing, and the receiver. Difficult to configure and once configured does not work well at all. Should have paid someone to run a cat 5 instead of wasting money and time on this.
Pros:
None.
Cons:
Don't buy this. Go buy another product that does the same thing or pay someone to run a wire.

Terrible

Written By DMR70, New York, NY on Tuesday, March 04, 2014
 
I thought this was a terrible product before I got my new router. It never worked with WPS so I had to manually configure it, which was a lot trickier than it had to be. Once it was all set up properly, it would randomly drop the Airplay connection. Sometimes it would work all day long, and other times it would drop out every 3-4 minutes with no explanation. Junk!

Then I got a new router. Now I can't get it to connect at all. Not even manually. Every other device made the transition to the new router seamlessly.

There are 50 ways to get the music to the receiver that don't involve the YWA-10, and almost all of them are better and cheaper.
Pros:
It won't take up much room in the trash can.
Cons:
I bought it. That's the biggest negative.

Great Product

Written By Orngfan, Detroit, MI on Monday, December 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This device is easy to set up using WPS but is a little tricky using manual setup. WPS works very quickly, and I was connected in a minute and streaming pandora, dlna, or apple airpaly of music.

The problem I encountered is that my Router sometimes disconnects, maybe once a week, this causes the WPS setup to fail and a loss of connectivity until it is set back up. To overcome this I did the manual setup. Make sure that you reset the YWA-10 if you want to change the settings, try to reconnect with WPS, or go from WPS to manual or vice versa. If you don't reset you will have trouble getting the device to connect to your network or to log in to it using the manual setup. With manual setup you have to connect the device to a PC to set it up. It is a little tricky but if you have basic computer and networking knowledge you should not have a problem. Once connected this device works excellent. If you have trouble using airplay (I was connected for all net apps except airplay) try restarting your router and/or disconnecting the power cord momentarily from the YWA-10.

If you are having disconnect issues try looking at your router or placement of the YWA-10 in relation to your router.
Pros:
Compact and easy to hide. Allows for easy steaming of your media. Allows you to use the remote app on your ipad/smartphone.
Cons:
A little expensive, manual setup can be tricky.

Total Junk

Written By DaveF, Cloverdale, CA on Thursday, November 28, 2013
 
First off---I really like Yamaha products, but this one is a dog! Haven't had so much trouble with a wifi device since when they first came out. I have at least a half-dozen devices currently on Wifi (through an Airport Extreme router) and all that any required was just entering my password, etc.

I spent half a day trying to reach their web site I needed to program the YWA-10. Even two calls to Crutchfield technical support didn't help.
Pros:
None
Cons:
Not user friendly----instructions for programing were bogus----Crutchfield technical help couldn't help and nothing about these problems on the Yamaha web site---not even a link to the programing page.

Even after calling Crutchfield tech support several times and downloading my WiFi router information onto the adapter, it will not connect to my WiFi. Something is wrong and I have no idea what it is.I will just plug my smart phone into the front of the AV Receiver and get music that way.
Pros:
good in principle
Cons:
Can't get it to work

Works great, but manual setup is difficult

Written By JonH, Westfield, MA on Monday, August 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you can connect your Yamaha receiver to Internet with an Ethernet cable, don't buy this wi-fi adapter. I had to configure it manually for my router (Apple Time Capsule). Not user friendly, and a couple router settings the instructions said to look for weren't found. (Other components with built-in wi-fi [including a Yamaha Blu-ray player] are as simple as selecting and logging into your LAN wi-fi once. Not sure why this adapter cannot work the same way.) After 3 attempts I finally got it. Once configured it has been working flawlessly.
Pros:
Internet connection adds much more versatility to Yamaha AV receiver - including Apple Airplay, Internet radio, remote app usability (especially useful for Zone 2 control), and other services.
Cons:
1. Manual configuration is difficult. 2. Overpriced (but if you need it, well...). A flimsy plastic box with a couple connection jacks and electronics; seems like Yamaha should price it at about $25 instead of this much.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had a hard time understanding the instructions, I could not tell if I was suppose connect with my laptop or through the receiver for programing. I called tech support at Crutchfield, the tech had already had some experience with the YWA-10, the tech had me connect up with my laptop then walked me through the steps needed then we did a test to see if the YWA-10 was talking with my router... It was and I connected it to my receiver and so far it has worked great
Pros:
Gives you access to Net Radio, Pandora, AirPlay, Rhapsody and Sirius XM
Cons:
Could be better priced...

Product Good, Tech Support Not Good

Written By ElectronicOne, California on Friday, June 07, 2013
 
Was having difficulties connecting the YWA10 to my router via Wifi, called Crutchfield for technical support the guy was of no use he kept asking me did I follow the directions that came with the YWA10 I said YES...I do I.T. myself so i made sure to cover all my bases before calling Crutchfield and his only resolution for me was to send me a new YWA10...What the heck, being very fustrated I decided to call Yamaha and they walked me through everything and had my YWA10 up and running within 10 minutes. =)
Pros:
Great Product, Love the App
Cons:
Crutchfield tech is of no help, Call Yamaha
Crutchfield response on Monday, June 17, 2013
Our tech support specialist wasn't familiar with this product. He learned the hard way that the Yamaha manual can be confusing. The Yamaha setup instructions page is more helpful. Thanks for your comment. We'll do better next time.

Didn't work

Written By VernonL, Oakland, CA on Friday, May 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This wireless receiver did not work at all even after spending hours on the phone with techs at Crutchfield. Even through this is the proper wireless Wi-Fi device per Yamaha I was never able to access the internet via the YWA-10 for net stations. Additionally, the adaptor requires you to plug it in to the usb port on the front of a Yamaha RX-V573 AV receiver and that looks terrible and uses the only usb port on the unit, poor design.
Pros:
None
Cons:
It doesn't work

Set up with secure wireless network took about 5 min. Using with Yamaha A720 AirPlay working so far with no drops. Using iPhone and iPad to control system is easy. The YWA-10 is an excellent choice if you do not wish to run a cat5 cable from your computer or in our case have not decided on a permanent location to install in wall cat5 connection.. Crutchfield had product to me in 2 days.

1 question already asked

Can you connect more then one adroid device(phone plus Tabelet) to the amp through this device or can it only handle one device to do the controlling? [ heinrich  Aug 08, 2014 ]
7 answers
  • Not sure exactly what you are trying to do, but let me tell you how I use it and I think that will answer your question. 1. Controlling the unit. I use an apple platform, not droid, but you can install an app from Yamaha on all your devices and basically use any of them as a remote. When it works, this is great, but I have not had good experience with the app. It loses the device and I have to plug it into the computer and reset it. You are supposed to make sure the network is set to standby, but that does not solve the problem. Be cautious if this is why you want this thing. 2. Using it for AirPlay. This works great pretty much 100% of the time (which is why I'm pretty sure the above problem is the app and not the device). This way I can use any of my devices to push music, etc. to the receiver through my network. So, in sum, for both ways I use you can use as many devices as you want. I love the AirPlay feature. Using it to convert a device to a remote has not been worthwhile. I hope the android app is better. [ THOMAS W   Aug 10, 2014 ]
  • I don't know; I could never get the thing to work per there web instructions and web site. Pretty sad huh? Let me know if you are able to figure it out. [ CLINTON   Aug 19, 2014 ]
  • Have never tried it, only have it connected to my receiver.... [ PATRICK   Aug 11, 2014 ]
  • My Yamaha YWA-10 is connected to my homes wireless router remotely without any wires. This allows us to use all our mobile devices (several iphones, Ipad's etc. to our amp. We all just love it as we all have different tastes in music and we all have our own music collection. This is a wireless connection device to your home network. I don't believe you can hard wire it to your wired router. If your on the fence about investing in a wireless router, Do it! You will have no regrets... Today's wireless is just outstanding! my wife prints reports from her iphone and to our wireless printer. The internet connection to our smart TV and Blue Ray player is outstanding! We use it to watch Netflix all the time with no buffiting. Hay, get the Yamaha, you won't be sorry.... [ RICHARD D   Aug 11, 2014 ]
  • I have only used it for one device. [ HENRY M   Aug 10, 2014 ]
  • Yes you can but it has to be a apple product not a android [ SCOTT   Aug 10, 2014 ]
  • AMP can be controlled from multiple devices [ ROBERT MICHAEL   Aug 10, 2014 ]
