Yamaha introduces new “instant upgrade” for MusicCast
Yamaha has announced a new addition to the MusicCast family, the WXAD-10, an adapter that “allows almost any device” to become part of a multi-room audio system.
Connecting the WXAD-10 “to any audio product you already own,” says Yamaha, will confer all the benefits of a multi-room system without having to replace existing products or disrupt the current audio system installation. The adapter, nicknamed the “ADD”, is a small, stylishly designed unit that can be placed anywhere to fit with existing décor, or positioned discreetly out of sight. It is powered by a single USB cable for easy connectivity.
The WXAD-10 can connect to a soundbar, a set of HiFi components, a home theatre, a CD system or almost any existing audio product via the RCA connection on the back to send a line level signal, or the 3.5mm output will control volume directly via the MusicCast app.
MusicCast brings Bluetooth connectivity, Airplay, a wide range of streaming services including Spotify, TIDAL and Deezer, app control and net radio. The app is compatible with Android and Apple devices.
