Details & Highlights

Details from Yamaha

    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 preamplification.

    Control at Your Fingertips

    Connect the WXC–50 to your existing AV receiver or Hi–Fi system, 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.


    Access all of your music with a simple app and wirelessly stream it throughout your home using your existing Wi–Fi® network.

    Stream it all.

    Listen to Pandora®, Spotify, Napster®, SiriusXM Internet Radio, thousands of free internet radio stations and the music stored on your smart devices and computers.

    Wireless connectivity.

    All MusicCast products are fully loaded with Wi–Fi, Bluetooth and AirPlay®.

    Expand to a whole home audio experience.

    When you’re ready, add MusicCast wireless speakers, sound bars or other devices in up to 9 other rooms and listen throughout your home.

    No wires, easy.

    By using MusicCast, you don't need to fuss with placing wires through walls into other rooms.

    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.

    Rack Shelf Friendly

    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.

    High–Resolution Audio

    The WXA–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 you to play back high–resolution audio sources just as they are, without any processing.

    One–Touch Controls

    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.

    Low Power Consumption

    The WXA–50 consumes less than two watts of power in standby mode. When the power is on, power consumption is still a low 15 watts. In addition, the Auto Power Standby feature lets you save energy by automatically turning the power off after two, four, eight or 12 hours.

    Disklavier ENSPIRE™

    Turn your entire home into a concert hall. Combine the world’s most advanced piano, the Disklavier ENSPIRE, with MusicCast to enjoy the sound and music of a real acoustic piano in any room of your home.

    With a firmware update coming in Fall 2016, the WXA–50 amp can be used to power speakers for backing tracks in the same room as the Disklavier, while the WXC–50 preamp can be used to transmit both the piano sound and backing tracks to other rooms.
