Yamaha WX030 MusicCast Wireless Speaker : Great sound and so easy to use

I bought my sonos participate in one for this, as could not justify the crazy price ranges for a sonos soundbar and sub to go with it in my entrance home. So bought this for the kitchen, and the yamaha ysp1600 soundbar a portion of sonos price tag. This speaker is similar to the sonos three which is £300 and is bluetooth compatible, it will even ship to a none yamaha speaker. Only downside it does not have a lot of streaming solutions.

Great audio and a nice addition to our wireless house audio established. Swift shipping and muts less expensive than any dutch world-wide-web store.

I have two of these to run as a stereo pair in my kitchen area. I find the seem very fantastic for compact speakers but often the soundstage appears to be corrupted as one particular speaker does not retain up with the other and dropouts come about. Shifting all over the space (me not the speaker) would seem to interrupt the sound in spite of a fantastic wi-fi reception.

Seems excellent, uncomplicated to set up. Truly worth playing around with the amounts from your music style to get the ideal seem (bass especially high so was originally upset with a whole lot of 70s rock – zepplin, bowie, etcetera, as the audio felt pretty compressed. Having said that, just after actually upping the bigger and medium array on the speakers, they’ve executed fantastically). Will surely get a next speaker the acquire benefit of the pairing capability. For a fairly tiny speaker,, it fills a reasonably massive home pretty properly. Like numerous one speakers it performs greater if performed loud (so you often require to compromise on the depth of audio if you want it quieter – a little something i suspect would be get over if paired as a stereo technique). One-way links into my musiccast sound program perfectly.

Great very little speakers,i have two paired in stereo,seem is superior for this sort of a compact size,seem terrific at superior and low volumes and they are fantastic high-quality as you would expect from yamaha,i would have specified 5 stars if they experienced batteries which built them more transportable,other than that i’m actually delighted with my obtain .

Yamaha WX030 MusicCast Wireless Speaker with Bluetooth & Airplay – White : Great sounding and excellent quality.

Undesirable sound, not what you hold out to hear from yamaha, thought to obtain 5 units, bought just one for sample, no way i will acquire the relaxation.

A little bit high-priced for what it is, but is effective nicely.

The yamaha wx030 wireless speaker with bluetooth is a good solution. It offers online enabled music and radio streaming providers (i. Spotify) or can act just as a straight ahead bluetooth speaker so you can promptly enjoy for a range of units. I acquired a white model of the speaker and it appears to be like great, pretty modern-day and streamlined, a sleek physical appearance with lower-profile controls that are quick to use. The set-up course of action was simple, the musiccast app walks you by way of the quick installation. It was all carried out in a few minutes. I straight away examined the speaker by playing music from my amazon new music application on my apple iphone. It picked up the speaker and i could enjoy it via airplay. The sound excellent is quite great and there is excellent clarity, on the other hand the bass is a small muffled and it spoils some of the crispness of the increased tones.

It generates so substantially bass for these types of a smaller unit, that i experienced to convert the bass downonly four stars, since i bought this to go with my rn602 amp, with the intention of streaming vinyl to the kitchen area, which yamaha say they will do but there is a delay between what’s been played in the dwelling area and what’s in the kitchen area, which sounds horrendous if you might be standing involving the two rooms (like at a bash). I’ve been on the mobile phone with yamaha assistance who admit that it truly is an issue, that might or may well not be fixes in a upcoming firmware update. I want to be crystal clear even though, that this hold off only exists when streaming external sources (vinyl, cd participant, tv set, etcetera. If you happen to be taking part in world-wide-web radio, or bluetoothing from a mobile phone, then it streams to multiple rooms properly in sync.

Good audio, easy to put in and hyperlink with.

I am always a little bit afeard of technological innovation and searching at the directions offers me a gentle shudder. But i downloaded the musiccast controller app to my pill and it was so very simple to get it up and functioning. The audio high quality is more than satisfactory and no speaker wobbles when significant impressive notes during opera playback. It is mono and and use the app to handle treble and bassi am pleased with what i am listening to. It is for every day music (e. Wallpaper) and not hello-fi playback and it does the occupation very well. The app is pretty fantastic for picking out artist, album or genre. The unit is plain black and uncomplicated. If wall-mounted it would just resemble a frequent speaker (though you would require to let for proximity to a mains electricity point.

The wireless speaker industry provides a great deal of option, so i was interested to see how yamaha’s new solution compares to other folks in a related rate bracket, these types of as the panasonic all3 wireless speaker technique (white). [update – a few of years afterwards and the panasonic all3 speaker has stopped doing work, which would seem to be a not uncommon issue with that product. The yamaha is continue to likely robust.the first test comes with setup; as is often the case with these systems you have to download an ios/android app (called multicast) to your smart phone first and run the setup from there. The instructions provided by the app are clear, but it took me three goes to get the speaker to connect successfully to the wifi. That being said, it’s a lot smoother and less fiddly than the panasonic setup. The multicast app is also pretty good; responsive, clean design and with the added bonus of a simple equalizer function to allow you to tune the sound to your preference and your room’s accoustics (note that you have to go into the “song playing” page on your multicast app to access the equalizer – it’s not terribly obvious where to find it). It integrates well with spotify premium (not the free service, take note). Again a better experience than the panasonic. In terms of design the speaker is compact and robust, but the controls are terrible; they are touch-sensitive (rather than raised) and are incredibly difficult to see on a very similar-coloured background unless you shine a bright light on them. ]

Great speaker will work effectively with my yamaha receiver decent sound quiality as well.

I’ve experienced this for a pair of weeks. Sound high-quality is outstanding for the size. Contrary to the other reviewer that states that there is no eq – there is indeed an eq which u entry in the application on your phone or tablet. I bought for web radio due to the fact i have really poor sign where i dwell. Also streaming specifically from spotify napster etc is valuable. It has restrictions and sometimes it would be helpful if you could have much more controls on the unit itself and an auxiliary input could occur in useful but hardly ever the considerably less i am really delighted and now have three of these. I listened to the bose unit which is £280 and this sounds as good if not far better.

Received this speaker to add to the a single i presently had. Wonderful seem and so effortless to use.

Works nicely sufficient but a lot of the streaming services usually are not obtainable in the british isles. Would’ve been pleasant to have a couple of cost-free types like lastfm or jango.

I have in fact mounted this exterior, less than a substantial lean-to roof, at the start out of my backyard. It’s a attractive style and design and sits completely on the wall. The musiccast application will take it to a different stage. I have bought an current yamaha amp, and as such i can pick out any combination of rooms to engage in everything in. So i can have a movie in the lounge, spotify in the eating home and radio exterior. Or i can tap a person button and set the similar in all or any, and it synchronises the timing of the tunes so as you wander by means of the dwelling, its seamless. The rate is so low-priced compared to sonos kit, and does these a excellent occupation. I heave sonos elsewhere but level this similarly effectively.

Spectacular seem for its measurement, straightforward to set up, choices to wall mount or connect with ethernet cable. Greatest utilised as aspect of a multiroom technique. With one of these in the kitchen linked to my dwelling room speakers using yamaha’s musiccast program it synchronises the playback completely. Already thinking of receiving an additional one for supplemental rooms. An great accent to an present method or a excellent standalone sensible speaker.

Seems actually very good, app is alright, superior top quality materials.

I am editing this as i have sorted it out. I will go away the authentic evaluate and amend at the stop. This is a large disappointment. It appears to be like great and is really loud, but there it ends. Even in daylight it is nigh not possible to see the controls, and at night you are not able to come across them as they never light up and there is no touch to sense. There is soooo a lot bass that tunes sounds completely muffled and speaking is tricky to make out. And there is no way to manage tone – not on the speaker, nor in the application. If you pay attention as a result of spotify there is no eq harmony there both. This is unfortunately the worst purchase i have made.

Excellent speaker, sounds and appears to be excellent. Definitely effortless to set up as lengthy as music units can put in the application.

One Comment on “Yamaha WX030 MusicCast Wireless Speaker : Great sound and so easy to use”

  1. I’ve actually mounted this outside, under a large lean-to roof, at the start of my garden. It’s a beautiful design and sits perfectly on the wall. The musiccast app takes it to another level. I’ve got an existing yamaha amp, and as such i can choose any combination of rooms to play anything in. So i can have a movie in the lounge, spotify in the dining room and radio outside. Or i can tap one button and put the same in all or any, and it synchronises the timing of the music so as you walk through the house, its seamless. The price is so cheap compared to sonos kit, and does such a great job. I heave sonos elsewhere but rate this equally well.

    The bass are a little bit too much for me, and i’m quite upset not being able to properly configure it. Presets go weird sometimes so i need to power off and on again. Aesthetics : quite pretty and minimalist. Doesn’t take too much space. Can be hooked to the wall if needed.

    1. Sounds great, easy to set up. Worth playing around with the levels against your music type to get the right sound (bass particularly high so was initially disappointed with a lot of 70s rock – zepplin, bowie, etc, as the sound felt very compressed. However, after really upping the higher and medium range on the speakers, they’ve performed beautifully). Will definitely get a second speaker the take advantage of the pairing ability. For a fairly small speaker,, it fills a moderately large room very well. Like many single speakers it performs better if played loud (so you sometimes need to compromise on the depth of sound if you want it quieter – something i suspect would be overcome if paired as a stereo system). Links into my musiccast sound system perfectly.

I find the sound very good for small speakers but often the soundstage seems corrupted as one speaker doesn’t keep up with the other and dropouts occur. Moving around the room (me not the speaker) seems to interrupt the sound despite a good wi-fi reception.

With one of these in the kitchen linked to my living room speakers using yamaha’s musiccast system it synchronises the playback perfectly. Already considering getting another one for additional rooms. An excellent accessory to an existing system or a great standalone smart speaker.

    Was a little tricky to set up, as i first had to plug into ethernet and update the firmware before the android setup would work correctly. Whilst i’m reasonably tech-savvy, this might not have been obvious for others. In fact, it caused me quite a bit of frustration. I have this speaker as a standalone unit in the kitchen to replace a rather pathetic radio which my wife purchased. The sound is really full, given its size and it maintains a good sound with the volume ramped up. It’s a quality unit for its size and footprint, with a surprising level of base. Obviously it’s not stereo, but a second unit would be easy enough to configure. Perhaps it is a little pricey, but it does sound good and if you have other musiccast devices it makes sense. I would have given 5 stars if the setup had been easier. Imho at least on par with competition, if not better.

      1. Setup failed the first time round, but that may have been network issues. Second time was smooth and the phone app and itunes link work perfectly,sound quality is great, fills a fairly large room with good sound.

Unlike the other reviewer that states that there is no eq – there is indeed an eq which u access in the app on your phone or tablet. I bought for internet radio because i have very poor signal where i live. Also streaming directly from spotify napster etc is useful. It has limitations and sometimes it would be useful if you could have more controls on the unit itself and an auxiliary input may come in handy but never the less i am very pleased and now have 3 of these. I listened to the bose unit which is £280 and this sounds as good if not better.

    I sold my sonos play 1 for this, as could not justify the crazy prices for a sonos soundbar and sub to go with it in my front room. So bought this for the kitchen, and the yamaha ysp1600 soundbar a fraction of sonos price. This speaker is comparable to the sonos 3 which is £300 and is bluetooth compatible, it will even send to a none yamaha speaker. Only downside it does not have many streaming services.

    1. Product is good – good sound, and the the control app is nice (you can customise it to your needs) yamaha have released the web api as well so you can control it with other controllers (like home automation) if you wanti bought it from atlantic shopping who have been dreadful.

  23. Works well although i have not worked out how to get it to connect to the tv which is in another room connected to a musiccast soundbar. Also trying to work out how to use internet radio ?. I currently have to stream radio from my phone to it. Not sure if there is some way of controlling the base and treble ?. Musiccast is a fairly complicated system.

    It generates so much bass for such a small device, that i had to turn the bass downonly 4 stars, because i bought this to go with my rn602 amp, with the intention of streaming vinyl to the kitchen, which yamaha say they’ll do; but there is a delay between what’s been played in the living room and what’s in the kitchen, which sounds horrendous if you’re standing between the two rooms (like at a party). I’ve been on the phone with yamaha support who acknowledge that it’s an issue, that may or may not be fixes in a future firmware update. I want to be clear though, that this delay only exists when streaming external sources (vinyl, cd player, tv, etc. If you’re playing internet radio, or bluetoothing from a phone, then it streams to multiple rooms perfectly in sync.

    1. This is a wireless speaker that can be added to your network to play music fed from other devices or connected to from bluetooth. I have tested both of these methods using an iphone 6s. The bluetooth connection was fairly effortless, you press the connection button on the top and it appears in the bluetooth list on the phone. To place it on your network is a little involved and in my experience a little more flaky, which is why i have awarded 4 stars and not 5. You have to download a yamaha connection app and using this didn’t go so smoothly. I ran the software and followed the instructions but it couldn’t find the speaker, i then had to leave the software and connect to the speaker, then go back in the software and input network names and passwords. I tried on the 5ghz band first and it simply crashed the software. I tried the second time and had to connect again to the speaker’s own wifi connection, but it took a few goes and a power on and off on the speaker to show up. I got there in the end and was able to configure it to the 2. After that it was effortless for the rest of the evening connecting via airplay. However next time i came to use it, it didn’t show up in the airplay list and i had to go through the whole sorry connection dance again. I hope this isn’t needed every time i connect but it might be, third time no, fourth time yes. Music wise the speaker works pretty well. It is loud enough for a good sized bedroom and has limited eq via the app.

    This is a wireless speaker that can be added to your network to play music fed from other devices or connected to from bluetooth. I have tested both of these methods using an iphone 6s. The bluetooth connection was fairly effortless, you press the connection button on the top and it appears in the bluetooth list on the phone. To place it on your network is a little involved and in my experience a little more flaky, which is why i have awarded 4 stars and not 5. You have to download a yamaha connection app and using this didn’t go so smoothly. I ran the software and followed the instructions but it couldn’t find the speaker, i then had to leave the software and connect to the speaker, then go back in the software and input network names and passwords. I tried on the 5ghz band first and it simply crashed the software. I tried the second time and had to connect again to the speaker’s own wifi connection, but it took a few goes and a power on and off on the speaker to show up. I got there in the end and was able to configure it to the 2. After that it was effortless for the rest of the evening connecting via airplay. However next time i came to use it, it didn’t show up in the airplay list and i had to go through the whole sorry connection dance again. I hope this isn’t needed every time i connect but it might be, third time no, fourth time yes. Music wise the speaker works pretty well. It is loud enough for a good sized bedroom and has limited eq via the app.
