Yamaha MusicCast unites Hi-Fi and home theater sound performance with Wireless Multiroom Simplicity

MUMBAI: Yamaha introduced MusicCast, a new way to bring music to every room in a home wirelessly with control provided by a simple app. Designed to easily work with an existing home Wi-Fi network, MusicCast offers access to a huge range of audio content from virtually any source. These include streaming services, Internet radio channels, digital music libraries, Bluetooth® devices, and even external sources connected to MusicCast products, such as TV set-top boxes, Blu-ray Disc players and turntables. By year end, Yamaha will offer over 20 MusicCast enabled products spanning a broad array of categories including AV receivers, wireless speakers, sound bars, Hi-Fi components and powered monitor speakers.

All MusicCast products support Bluetooth playback, which allows users to listen to any content played on the system via their mobile device. Alternatively, a MusicCast device can output a Bluetooth stream, allowing transmission to Bluetooth speakers or headphones.

MusicCast also supports wireless playback of high-resolution audio files for a true high-fidelity listening experience with exceptional sound realism and detail.

MusicCast offers unprecedented versatility through the integration of a wide range of products, enabling a MusicCast system to provide true surround sound, including multidimensional Dolby Atmos and DTS:X in a main TV room, while streaming the audio content to other rooms throughout the home.

“MusicCast is the wireless multiroom audio system for those who want more than just background music,” said AV Division, Yamaha Corporation of America, general manager, Bob Goedken. “Now you can build the ultimate home theater or Hi-Fi system in your main entertainment room and expand it easily with wireless speakers, sound bars, or additional receivers in other rooms, like a kitchen or bedroom, with a single app to control it all. Or you can start with a single wireless speaker and expand over time. No other system provides access to all your content and such a wide range of listening experiences.”
