Great sound

The sound this thing produces fills our kitchen with happiness. Love the wireless system!!! I still don't fully understand the MusicCast App, but hopefully before long I'll be 'up to snuff'.

Pros:

Cons: The MusicCast App is a little clunky. I could help them make it more user friendly!!

I like the sound, plus using this WX-051 in another part of the house wirelessly connected with a Yamaha MusicCast receiver provides the whole house with clean crisp sound without having to turn the volume way up.

I put it in my kitchen as a 3rd zone from my sound system. It has good sound and nice lows. I use it mostly for streaming Pandora from the WiFi.

Finally, a surround solution that works

I have tried EVERYTHING to get my soundbar to provide the same experience as when I had a true 5.1 wired system. I finally caved and bought this. This speaker provides enough rich rear surround sound that it's almost as good as when I had in-ceiling rear speakers. I'm very happy with with the combination of my Yamaha 400 soundbar with the subwoofer and this speaker. MusicCast is really great!

While I think the speakers sound terrific, the app to control them is very inconsistent. I put 2 in each room and it is nearly impossible to get them to work in sync as stereo without having to start from scratch and setting them up again. So every time I want to use 2 speakers in a room, I have to start over. Going to try support again to see if I can get help with the Yamaha app and speakers.

Amazing Speaker

A worthy tradition in the Yamaha line of only the best in sound. This is part of a Yamaha MusicCast system that includes the Soundbar BAR 400 (YAS-408) and a pair of MusicCast 20 speakers. After doing the initial setup using the MusicCast app on the BAR 400, it was a simple plug and play to seamlessly connect to the other components -- out of box to music was less than 5 minutes to get the MusicCast 50 speaker up and working. It is installed in our dining room and I am totally impressed and satisfied with the ability of this unit to produce true stereo quality sound. The Yamaha MusicCast system is a pleasure to work with and intuitively easy to use, whether linking and unlinking rooms, setting volumes individually or collectively, and/or individually connecting to a variety of inputs. We use Alexa, as well as the MusicCast app to control the entire system including the MusicCast 50 speaker. Only "downside" is I foresee ownership of more Yamaha MusicCast components in our near future...

Pros: > Yamaha Sound and engineering > Crutchfield advice and support > Easy of setup and intuitive control

Cons: >None

So far I am really enjoying this speaker. I am using it as a wireless rear surround for my home theater set-up with a compatible Yamaha receiver. I can also disconnect from the home theater and use it as a stand-alone network or Bluetooth speaker with the MusicCast app. The sound is very good and the speaker appears to be very well built. It's also a very nice looking speaker so it's even wife approved!
