Yamaha MusicCast 1000 Digital Music Server & Client Review


Yamaha's MusicCAST 1000 is their foray into digital music storage and streaming. While it worked well, the high price and small drive have left us wishing for more.

Excellent PCM audio fidelity ; CD jukebox replacement ; Simple setup ; Works with existing wireless networks

Pricey ; CD burning only works with more expensive audio CD-Rs, not data CD-Rs

Yamaha MCX-1000 MusicCast server


If you're still into CDs, the MCX-1000 CD player/recorder/ripper and wireless music server will take you to the next level.

CD player/recorder/ripper and wireless music server with 80GB built-in hard drive ; Great sound ; Digital audio inputs and outputs ; Uses Gracenote's CD Database ; Wirelessly streams music to MCX-A10 or MCX-C15 client (not included)

Pricey ; Doesn't stream music from Internet music services or networked PCs ; Somewhat small hard drive size ; Doesn't display CD artwork ; Can't transfer preripped MP3 files from CD ; Can't stream video files

If your musical universe revolves around CDs, the well-implemented MCX-1000 has a lot to offer. However, its high price and lack of support for a subscription music service and its inability to play files stored on networked PCs makes it decidedly more...

Yamaha MCX-A10 MusicCast client


yamaha mcx-a10 musiccast client review: Yamaha's MCX-A10 is a solid digital audio receiver, but it works with only the companion MusicCast server.

Lived just as long as the warranty, Wirelessly streams music from MCX-1000 audio server, Includes front-panel display and TV output, Built-in amplifier, Directly powers most speakers, including Yamaha's optional MCX-SP10, Wall mountable

Not worth the life of the warrant, terrible service, nothing but trouble. Would never buy another/recommend another HP product., Pricey, Works with only the MCX-1000, Can't stream audio from Internet music services or networked PCs, Doesn't display CD...

HP's Media Center PC is a great entertainment PC for displaying photos, watching movies and playing games in your bedroom or home office, but the form factor isn't suited for a spot in your living room.
