Audiophile Sound, Exquisite Design
The WXA-50 features a solid metal body with an aluminum cover and a slim, compact design that fits just about anywhere. Under the hood, you’ll find high-performance components and advanced circuitry that deliver powerful, sonically-pure amplification.
Control at Your Fingertips
Connect the WXA-50 to any pair of traditional wired speakers (bookshelf, tower, in-ceiling, or outdoor speakers), then download the free MusicCast app to connect it to your existing home Wi-Fi to create a powerful streaming audio system.
Quickly select sources, browse your music library, and control playback right from your smartphone or tablet. You can also control sound EQ settings from the app.
All Your Content
Access streaming music and Internet radio stations, and music files on your mobile devices and computers, Bluetooth sources, and external sources such as a TV, Blu-ray Disc player or even a turntable.
A single WXA-50 can be used with speakers to create a standalone streaming audio system or multiple units can be used throughout the home. Play different music in each room or get everyone listening to the same thing. It can also be used with other MusicCast speakers, sound bars, AV receivers, or Hi-Fi gear, providing more options and versatility than ever before.
Bluetooth and AirPlay
Stream virtually any audio source via Bluetooth as an input to the WXA-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.
With the feet removed, the WXA-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 WXA-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.
The WXA-50 supports high-resolution audio – including FLAC/WAV/AIFF up to 192kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless (ALAC) up to 96kHz/24-bit and DSD up to 5.6MHz – 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 you to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are, without any processing.
Pressing any button on the front panel turns the unit on and initiates playback of the previously selected source providing quick and easy access to your favorite music.
The WXA-50 also comes with an ultra-slim remote offering six presets, so you can quickly access your favorite Internet radio stations even when your smartphone or tablet’s not handy.
