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 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.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Very disappointed

 

I purchased the WX010 and a RXV483 AV receiver at the same time. Thie main reason was to allow multi room streaming. The system would stop in sync for a max of 30 mins. Yamaha support didn't want to know. After 3 1/2 weeks Yamaha updated the software...

Works seamlessly, sounds great, good price

 

Have already got a Yamaha receiver with MusicCast system and coupled with my Bose Acoustimass speakers it sounds great and works brilliantly. I wanted a smaller speaker for the kitchen mainly but with the portabilty to allow easy movement around the...

Great sound, easy to use

 

I bought this speaker instead of a Sonos as various reviews said the sound was better. I haven't been disappointed. The sound is great at all volumes and I would buy another!

Good sound, easy to set up

 

I've now bought 3 of these speakers and I'm very happy with them. I have two in one room set up as stereo (a bit fiddly but instructions are on Yamaha's website) and another in a different room. The different rooms just popped up in iTunes without me...

Brill sound and easy setup

 

Brought this as it was £30 cheaper than the similar Sonos speaker. Friends have the Sonos play 1 and the sound quality is better on the Yamaha, with a richer sound and stronger base. I like it that much I'm considering buying another, to link to...
