Bluetooth® and AirPlay®

Allow your clients to stream virtually any audio source via Bluetooth as an input to the WXC-50. Bluetooth sources can be redistributed through Wi-Fi to other MusicCast devices. Or stream using AirPlay from an Apple® device to a single unit.

Slim, Compact Design

Only 2" tall and 8-3/8" wide, it can be placed horizontally or vertically, allowing it to fit neatly in almost any space.

Rack Shelf Friendly

With the feet removed, the WXC-50 is only 1-5/8" high, allowing it to be placed on a rack shelf within a 1U high rack space. Two units can be placed side-by-side on a 19" wide shelf.

Superior Audio Technology

Yamaha’s relentless pursuit of sonic purity is clearly evident in the engineering of the WXC-50. The preamp circuitry uses the same high-performance ESS Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) found in high-end Yamaha AV receivers and a proprietary power supply ground configuration prevents sound degradation. A 48-bit digital volume control provides much greater precision and quality than conventional controls. A highly-rigid metal chassis supplies the stability necessary for clear, powerful music reproduction with flawless installation.

High-Resolution Audio

The WXC-50 supports high-resolution audio –including FLAC/WAV/AIFF up to 192 kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless (ALAC) up to 96 kHz/24-bit and DSD up to 5.6 MHz – for more accurate reproduction of sonic details, presence and atmosphere.

Yamaha Proprietary Sound Processing

The Compressed Music Enhancer greatly improves sound reproduction from smartphones or other compressed sources, like MP3 files. Volume-adaptive EQ automatically adjusts the bass/treble balance according to the volume level. Advanced Bass Extension provides a deeper, richer low-end sound — great for use with compact or in-wall speakers. Direct Mode allows your client to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are, without any processing.

Player Mode

If your client wants to adjust volume from a connected Hi-Fi amp or AV receiver, the WXC-50 allows them to turn off "preamp" mode and use the device as a network audio player. Switching to "player" mode bypasses the volume control and any processing, allowing direct playback of high-resolution audio.

One-Touch Controls

Your client can press any button on the front panel to turn the unit on and initiate playback of the previously selected source, providing quick and easy access their favorite music. The WXC-50 also comes with an ultra-slim remote offering six presets, so your client can quickly access their favorite Internet radio stations even when their smartphone or tablet’s not handy.
