Yamaha MusicCast WX-010 review

 

The march of Bluetooth speakers continues onward without relent, even amid increasing competition from better-sounding alternatives that use Wi-Fi. Take the Yamaha MusicCast WX-010. Sure it does Bluetooth too, but its main appeal is as a smart Wi-Fi...

The Yamaha MusicCast WX-010 is an enjoyable Wi-Fi speaker which offers good looks and fine sonics. The speaker offers a number of useful connectivity features including stereo pairing, Spotify Connect, Airplay and Bluetooth.

Some of the functions involve a complicated series of button presses. The app isn't as straightforward to use as it could be. The Sonos One is a much better deal overall.

If you have a Yamaha receiver, the Yamaha MusicCast WX-010 is a perfect complement, offering delightful sound quality in a compact package.

Yamaha WX-010

 

The WX-010 is a wireless speaker from Yamaha's MusicCast multiroom range that streams music via DLNA, Bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify and more. It's a more compact version of last year's WX-030 speaker, selling for around £50 less.

Yamaha's latest wireless speaker has all bases covered, you can connect to it via wi-fi, Bluetooth and AirPlay, but does this small-scale multi-room speaker have the audio chops and oomph to deliver top-quality sound? Read on for our full verdict of...

Great little wireless solution

 

Bought to add to my existing MusicCast setup. Very simple to set up & as with all my other MusicCast speakers once they're set up, that's that! You can guarantee it'll remain set up for seamless room to room playback with no lag between them. For such...

So good!

 

Got this just before Christmas and it's been such fun! Love the ease of control through the app I can customise my playlists easily to accommodate my mood or task. The only downside is that if you have any teens in the house be prepared to buy it again...

A great sounding multi-room speaker

 

This is my second MusicCast speaker and I will be adding more. I had some setup issues because my WiFi used the same SSID for both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, but my mobile devices connected on the 5Ghz band couldn't see the Yamaha speaker (despite it being...

First Step to a total Wireless System a Success

 

This was my attempt to be at the cutting edge of technolgy. I decided to buy the Yamaha music cast speaker. I looked at all the reviews and decided pound for pond it was the best buy for me. It looks good and blends in with the décor and the sound from...
