Our take on the Yamaha MusicCast 50 (WX-051) Bundle by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Expansive wireless sound
Sporting a sleek, oval design, these Yamaha MusicCast 50 speakers fit into most any room's décor. Each one makes a great stand-alone wireless speaker for an office, den, or kitchen. Or use one or both for wireless rear-channel surround sound with any newer MusicCast-capable Yamaha home theater receivers, such as the RX-V485 and AVENTAGE RX-A780.
Place each speaker in a different room for a simple multi-room audio system. The MusicCast 50 connects to your home Wi-Fi network to give you access to internet radio, podcasts, and more.
Stereo sound and intuitive controls
Each individual MusicCast 50 features a stereo driver array with two 1-1/8" soft dome tweeters for clear highs and two 3-7/8" woofers for rich midrange and lower frequencies. For more volume and a wider soundfield, you can configure the two speakers together as a left and right stereo pair. Top-panel buttons include three one-touch presets and an alarm control.
MusicCast for simple multi-room audio
This bundle gets you started with a MusicCast audio system. You can combine up to 10 MusicCast speakers and components in a whole-house system, and control them all with Yamaha's excellent MusicCast mobile app. Play your digital music library, internet radio stations, and popular streaming services. There's support for Pandora® and SiriusXM. If you're a Spotify® Premium subscriber, Spotify Connect lets you access all your favorite albums and playlists. You can even stream high-resolution audio files.
Bluetooth multi-room streaming
Bluetooth streaming from your phone is handy. But with MusicCast, Bluetooth becomes even more convenient. Stream from your smartphone to one MusicCast 50. Then you can use the MusicCast app to send that audio content to any and all other MusicCast speakers and components throughout your home. It's an easy way to share the audio from any app on your phone or tablet, including podcasts and YouTube™ clips.
