Small, stylish and perfect for a desktop

 

I bought this to bypass relying on a pc to access music on a NAS drive, access Spotify, internet radio and play tracks straight from a USB stick into a pair of Ruark MR1 active speakers. It does all this very well with great sound quality, is small and...

Yamaha WXC50 Network Stereo Pre-Amplifier

 

This is a very good value-for-money product for someone who already has a hi-fi system but add-on a network player. The best of it is that it has a pre-amp out so that I could plug into my current pre-amp input integrated amplifier (so my integrated...

Great sound, well built, minor software issues

 

I was upgrading from Logitech Squeezebox Duo. WXC-50 sounds better, gives more connectivity and is more stable. BUT, the major issue is in MusicCast software. There is no search for the connect USB drive or on the DLNA server - though Yamaha site says...

Exactly what I wanted

 

I've always preferred separates for better quality sound, but I needed an internet streamer to compliment the existing setup, and the Yamaha is absolutely perfect.

Ignore it at your peril!

 

I have had a mixed experience of this product - the first sample I bought kept losing its stream and stopping playback, and regrettably was returned to the store. But - the last firmware update appears to have resolved this issue, and - Oh boy. This is...

Really good product

 

I bought yamaha wxc-50, to pair with yamaha as 1100, really like it, lots of good features, put a 256g usb in the back for all my music, there are better preamps out there, but for £250 you definitely can't beat it, 5 stars all the way.

Hidden gem!

 

Yamaha have targeted the everyday hifi enthusiast with an incredibly generous feature set and impressive performance at a palatable price. This might not be a unit for obsessive purists who spend their days listening for differences between different...

Great preamp but.....

 

Great preamp but if using like me as a streamer and a DAC on the optical connection you lose quite a lot of functionality in the software. Also this keeps dropping the Net Radio with no explanation, luckily I have a WXAD 10 and use that connection to...

Digital pre amp and dac

 

I got this Digital pre amp and dac 2 weeks ago, very happy with it, sounds very good connected direct to two rotel power amps feeding floor speakers and rel sub, use optical in from cd transport and Internet radio good considering the low bit rate that...

The missing link

 

This is what I have been waiting for, a reasonably priced streamer that would connect to my existing hi-fi. For several years I have owned a Sonos3, which is great except that the sound quality does not compare to a reasonable hi-fi set up. The WXC-50...
