    Anyone out there have any educated predictions on when Yamaha will replace the WXA-50 streaming amplifier? They have had this on the market for quite some time. I am disappointed that they are not going to update it with Amazon Music given that it appears to be their main streaming product, yet...

    I have a Yamaha R-N803D network receiver with wired speakers. The receiver is connected with the MusicCast app. I have also installed the Yamaha MusicCast SUB 100 in the network with the MusicCast app. I tried to connect the "amplifier room" to the "subwoofer room". However, the app says...
  3. Speakers
    I have a Yamaha receiver for music cast but I currently don’t have a way to have wires on the rear speakers. I will have to hang them kind of high on the wall and aim them down so I don’t walk into them in the middle of the night. I am not sure what all is a suitable option. I was hoping to keep...

    Howdy, I bought an RN602 and a WX030 a few years back with the intention of being able to play records throughout the house - turntable hooked up to the RN602 in the living room and then streaming the audio to the WX030 in the kitchen. It was a disaster. Despite Yamaha's marketing materials...

    It's been three decades since Yamaha released a new turntable but that's exactly what the company did at CEDIA 2018. Reason enough to start dancing! No joke, when the needle dropped on Thriller, that's what happened with the new TT-N503 MusicCast turntable from Yamaha. Proof of the power of...

    I bought a Yamaha TSR-7790 from Costco just over 2 years ago and it's acting up. Speakers sometimes work, and other times don't. And if I move the AVR around slightly, it changes which speakers work. Anyway, I'm looking to replace it with something similar-priced that will support a wireless 5.1...

    My first "serious" stereo receiver was a Yamaha R-7, and I loved the way it sounded with a pair of Infinity RS5000 speakers. Now, the company has leveraged six decades of hi-fi engineering experience in the new Yamaha R-N303 stereo receiver with far more capability than my old R-7—and it costs...
