Yamaha MusicCast WX010 Wireless Speaker : Great sound, once I got it going. Smart, compact and full of power. Some set -up issues, however.

Have a number of small bluetooth speakers which are wonderful portable devices and for their size have good sound. I have a number of small bluetooth speakers which are wonderful portable devices and for their size have good sound. But if you really want something that hooks up to your phone and can put our outstandingly clear sound with great base and loud enough to be heard at a distance then this is the item for you. As it is plugged in rather than charged it can really get some power behind it. First impressions are of a very well put together device. It appears like a small speaker but with the various functions on top you can see it is more than that. First thing i did was download the app which with a bit of setup connected nicely to the speaker and opened up options such as connecting to your phone’s library of music or being able to access things like spotify or radio stations. Unlike other such devices the app runs off your wi-fi so you get a more stable and stronger signal. The sound quality is very good and the volume levels can go up quite high. I find this useful as i placed mine in the dining room which is between my kitchen and living room and i can hear it perfectly clearly in each room which means when i am going back and forth whilst preparing food i do not have to turn my device on and off.

Powerful, bassy, clear speaker. Not sure i understand some of the other reviews on here. First, this is a powered speaker, so needs a power socket. It’s not meant to be a bluetooth speaker for your car or when you are out and about. Second, it connected first time for me via bluetooth, without the app. When i used the app and amazon music, it worked perfectly first time. Some other reviewers say you need spotify premium, so be aware if all your music is on spotify. I’m an android guy, and this works beautifully with my huawei p9 lite.

Does not work with ‘free’ spotify – premium only. This speaker works using an app, and is easy to set up. The sound quality is excellent – i have a bluetooth speaker, but it runs on a battery so its power is limited. This really packs a punch, and comes complete with pads to minimise the vibration for that exact reason. The speaker does need to be plugged into a power source wherever it sits. You can control volume on the speaker but it’s much easier to do it via the app. You can set different ‘rooms’ to optimise the sound (dining room, parlour) but being a serf with only normal rooms i didn’t do this. I was able to stream music to it using my phone – both bbc radio (online) and my own music on my phone/tablet but not spotify, because i don’t have a premium account, infuriatingly, and it’s important to know this before you invest. I’m going to have to stick to my little bluetooth speaker for my spotifying. Here are the specifications for the Yamaha MusicCast WX010 Wireless Speaker:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Incredible Sound quality from the world Largest Musical Instrument Manufacturer
  • Stream you entire Music Library, Spotify Qobuz & more streaming services plus Internet Radio
  • Bluetooth & Airplay as standard plus support for Hi-Res Audio
  • Compatible with all Yamaha Music Cast items so expand your system and fill your house with crystal clear sound
  • 2 year warranty as standard

Music whenever and from whatever device you’ve got. At almost £120 you might think this a tad expensive for a speaker but this is a speaker and a half and, in my opinion, worth every pennyopening the box i have to say i was a tad disappointed; it didn’t look any different from my old speaker (more compact but then things have moved on since my speakers were bought)it may be obvious to you but i’d not appreciated the difference that a wireless speaker makes; i’ve put it exactly where i wanted it – including on my patio when friends were round. My kids gave me spotify for christmas and up to now o hadn’t really valued it (listening on my phone was ok but not great). Listening to my choice of music through this speaker was a revolutioni have to admit i’m a bit scared of new technology and waited for my son to come home and set it up. A doddle was how he described iti’m also loving the internet radio that it comes with. I can listen to my favourite french radio station whenever i want – marvellous (manifique)i really find nothing to fault with this.

For the price it is fantastic.

  • Powerful, bassy, clear speaker. Perfect for home use!
  • Very good sound quality and flexibility when operating with other components of the Musiccast system

For the price it is fantastic.

Very good sound quality and flexibility when operating with other components of the musiccast system. I bought this wireless active speaker for use in connexion with the yamaha crx 470 n musiccast system. The sound quality and connectivity is very good. If you are looking for complete portability however look elsewhere as the speaker has no battery power it must be plugged into the mains. For my family the main object of buying the yamaha musiccast system was to listen to internet radio in virtually every room in the house. My wife is an avid listener of france inter. Before the french government, in their miserliness, decided to switch off the long wave transmission my wife had am radios stationed throughout the house. The musiccast system restores this functionality with the added benefit of better sound reproduction. The musiccast system is very flexible just like sonos.

Recommended for anyone who can’t quite bear the cost of a sonos setup. The unit is powerful enough for a 20 sq. Sound quality is excellent, a little bass heavy to my ears as a default, but this is easily adjusted. The unit is very solid, and comes with a rubberised base and additional adhesive pads, so unwanted vibration shouldn’t be a problem. The musicmatch app is fairly easy to get on with, very quickly recognises any dlna servers you have set up, also has access to airplay, net radio, spotify, deezer et al, or can just be used as a bluetooth speaker. Remembers the last source used, so when you switch it on it’ll continue from wherever it was when you switched it off. I have 2 of these in different rooms and connecting them is straightforward, though i suspect the quality of the syncing will be very dependant on your wifi.

Better than sonos and cheaper. Better than sonos play 1 in terms of sound quality. Also in my opinion app interface is great, quality is amazing too as it should be from yamaha brand. I have bought both – sonos play 1 and wx010 – to setup and compare.Sonos went back 🙂 yamaha – stayed. Planning to extend my musiccast network soon. Also is almost twice cheaper than sonos.

Superb sound – itunes connectivity let down. I am amazed at the clarity and room filling quality of this small speaker. It has a great range from high treble to bass with that can be felt and heard. This speaker is used in a large double height room and is performing well. This is a smart looking, very unobtrusive speaker. I like the clean uncluttered, simple design, the lack of knobs and buttons in favour of very sensitive touch controls is very welcome. Set up was straightforward and instructions easy to follow. I use ipads to control the speaker and have no problems with the app which is simple and intuitive. The one letdown for this dedicated apple user is the inability to play from itunes, thus having to rely on spotify (free), digital radio and music collection.

Great sound, once i got it going. Smart, compact and full of power. Some set -up issues, however. . This isn’t bad at all, a lovely looking speaker that takes up minimal space in your home. It can be wall-mounted or left free-standing, and being powered, there is no risk of the speaker cutting out halfway through an internet radio programme, for example. I’m not too bad with technology, although i’m not brilliant. I was slightly wary of the set-up, as i have used some wireless apps in the past that i had to re-install on my iphone 6s+ every time i used the device with which they are used. Sure enough, there were some issues. I had followed the instructions on the app, but connection for internet radio (what i really wanted this for) wasn’t happening. I installed mine before the other reviews highlighting connection issues appeared, which was just as well.

Wonderful sound and look, terrible control and connectivity. This feels like a harsh review for an excellent product, but bear with mei’ll start with the positives;the overall design of this speaker is excellent – its incredibly heavy for its relatively small frame, so is very stable and has a reassurance of “quality” in the build. Its not so much sleek or elegant as it is solid, stylish and unassuming. I actually love the look, and particularly like how there are no knobs or protruding buttons anywhere. The touch buttons (similar to a smartphone screen) are highly responsive, and require only the lightest touch to act. The downside here of course is that the surface is high gloss black, so shows up fingerprints and grease like nobodies business, and looks gross very quicklythe sound is phenomenal, considering the size. The volume control flows from whisper quiet to angry shouting crowd, never losing any quality at any level – it really is impressive considering its coming out of just one speaker. Its crystal clear, sharp and rich, and has a limited equalizer allowing you to umph up the bass or fiddle with the levels to give clarity to voice etc. In terms of sources, it can connect with any music you have on your server, your phone/ tablet, as well as many of the streaming accounts such as deezer and spotify. It also hosts more radio stations than i ever knew existed.

A lot larger and heavier than anticipated, but does come with the capability of attaching to a wall if you have some diy skills (i don’t)very easy to assemble and connect to bluetooth devices. Excellent range and quality of sound. Quite heavy on the bass but i’m not sure if that is because of the device it was attached to or the speaker itself.

Superb speaker, great sound, great value and great system. . I was offered this item for a fair review under amazon vine program. Probably the easiest item for me to review as i just can’t fault the quality of the yamaha speakers or the way the operate. I have a wx-030 and now 3 wx-030 speakers, the earlier ones were purchased with my own cash so this review is based on real use. As bluetooth standalone speakers they are superb, they are heavy, smart looking and most importantly sound fantastic. But once you link them up with the musiccast app they become sublime. We have held a succession of parties recently and had 3 speakers in the garden and another in the room that opened into the garden, having the same music from 3 seperate sources was excellent as. Place to place the music went with them all perfectly synced to my spotify premium account, to use with spotify you have to ha e a premium account. In normal use we have the speakers in 3 downstairs rooms and either have them synced or have different music playing on each one.

The sound quality is superb with good lows, impressive mids and excellent treble. The speaker links seamlessly with my yamaha rxv681 av amp and yamaha wx030 speaker. The sound quality is superb with good lows,impressive mids and excellent treble. I would say that the slightly cheaper and smaller wx010 has a better sound than the wx030 but not by much (although thinking about it as i write it could be the acoustics of the room as i have never switched them around. )i have this speaker in the kitchen, the wx030 in the dining room and the av amp in the lounge. Its great to go from room to room with the same music playing throughout. No sync issues at all with yamaha musiccast its exceptional with an easy to use downloadable app. The build quality is excellent , the sound quality is superb and setup is childs play. If you really want to hear music throughout the house the yamaha musiccast system really is a great way to do it.

The devices hardware is great, it delivers good punchy sound. The devices hardware is great, it delivers good punchy sound. The software on the other hand is a complete mess. First the management system lets you hook up the device to one controlling device at a time. Thats right, if you have multi room setup and want to control the rooms from different devices, you cant. Then the bluetooth connection just keeps dropping after 10-15 minutes of playback, no warning just cuts off. There is also no support for bigger streaming providers like spotify or stitcher. In essense, this is a expensive sort of ok bluetooth speaker.
