Yamaha WX-030

 

This bijou wireless speaker forms part of Yamaha's MusicCast multiroom system. With built-in Wi-Fi, you can stream music from phones, PCs, NAS drives and any of the music services available through Yamaha's MusicCast smartphone app.

Its performance is far from perfect but the WX-030 is an impressive member of the MusicCast range, offering a big sound in small rooms.

Yamaha WX-030 review

 

A solid performance you'd expect from a wireless speaker twice the size...

Big sound for its size ; Well balanced ; Plenty of drive and bass weight ; Good amount of detail ; Times well

Closed-in soundstage ; Lack of dynamics and expression

While not strictly an all-rounder, the Yamaha WX-030 is talented enough in its strongest areas to be considered as part of a multi-room family

  (Rating Hidden)

There's no doubt that a certain level of expectation befalls a speaker branded with those three intersecting forks. From tuning the engines in their motorcycles to the strings on their guitars, the Japanese manufacturer has successfully turned its hand...

Good audio performance ; Great build quality ; Plenty of features ; MusicCast is impressive ; Easy to setup and flexible

No real stereo separation

The WX-030 wireless speaker is an important product for Yamaha because, as we mentioned at the beginning of this review, it is a gateway into the world of MusicCast. So it's important that the speaker is easy to set up, flexible to install and supports...

Yamaha WX-030 MusicCast wireless speaker review: Sonos draws its strongest challenger

 

It's impossible to discuss the merits of a multi-room audio system these days without answering this question: Is it better than Sonos? I answer with a highly qualified “no” in this broader discussion of Yamaha's MusicCast system. In this review, I'll...

Terrific bang-for-the buck performance ; Support for high bit-rate lossless file formats, including FLAC and ALAC ; Can be networked with a variety of other Yamaha audio components

MusicCast app inferior to the Sonos app ; Supports only a handful of music-streaming services ; Mute button on slave speakers doesn’t work

Yamaha’s WX-030 is a great little speaker, and the MusicCast ecosystem that it’s part of has some very attractive elements.

Yamaha Musicast Wx-030 Wireless Speakers Review

 

Yamaha's newest wireless speaker, the WX-030, boasts wireless connectivity and convenient pairing with your smartphone via Bluetooth

The WX-030 does a very good job at what it was designed for ; If you want a tonally accurate speaker that minimizes distortion, the WX-030 is well worth your consideration ; My sole complaint is that the speaker was not (also) designed to serve as...

My sole complaint is that the speaker was not (also) designed to serve as wireless surround speaker of a Home Theater system

THE YAMAHA WX-030 is a bluetooth speaker with as accurate a tonal presentation for anywhere near the Yamaha’s price.

Yamaha MusicCast PLUS WX-030 - REVIEW

 

An excellent little speaker to extend your multiroom music-making into additional small or medium-sized rooms.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Great sound

 

I bought this about a month ago and am very happy with. I am considering to purchase same for other bedrooms in the house.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Easy to use, but can't adjust sound balance

 

I've run this off various phones, iPads, and desktops in the house with no problems at all. My only complaint is that the treble sounds rather muffled, and there seems to be no way to adjust it, even via Yamaha's app.
