The WXC-50 is a new-concept audio component that goes beyond conventional audio thinking. It let you access a wide variety of audio content such as music from streaming services or stored on a smartphone, and enjoy high quality sound and style thanks to the ability to network with Yamaha’s exclusive MusicCast multi-room audio system.

The WXC-50 preamplifier is the perfect solution for those who want to get the most out of their existing home theater or Hi-Fi system. It supports Bluetooth, DLNA, Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect and is compatible with all other MusicCast products. The slim metal case design allows easy and flexible positioning vertically or horizontally in even the tightest of spaces without disturbing your decor and will bring your legacy system bang up to date with access to the latest streaming services and formats.

WXC-50 incoporates the same ESS Technology DAC used in high-end Yamaha AV receivers and advanced circuit designs to deliver clear, detailed music reproduction. Yamaha proprietary sound processing technologies such as a Compressed Music Enhancer, Volume Adaptive EQ and Advanced Bass Extension Processing help improve sound performance of lower bitrate music files.

WXC-50 supports playback of high-resolution audio files for more accurate sonic reproduction, including Apple Lossless (ALAC) files up to 96 kHz/24-bit, as well as FLAC, AIFF and WAV files up to 192 kHz / 24-bit. It also supports single-device playback of DSD streams up to 5.6 MHz.

MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from connected external devices such as a TV or Blu-ray Disc player. Audio content from Bluetooth connected smartphones or tablets can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.
