Yamaha Turns Up Multi-Room Audio

Turning up the heat with their new range of multi-room products, Yamaha have recently launched a new revolutionary technology called MusicCast.

While multi-room home audio solutions have existed for some time now, Yamaha are taking it to the next level by offering the capability to stream music from any audio device via its HDMI, digital, USB, network or analogue connections.

Since the rise of music streaming services and demand of multi-room solutions that allow you to play the same song, or even different songs through multiple speaker systems throughout your home, Yamaha has released a range of new and updated systems to enable you to do just that.

MusicCast is a revolutionary new technology that operates by allowing users to share any audio source to any room. This gives you the ability to tailor an audio system to meet your individual household’s entertainment needs with an extensive selection of MusicCast enabled products.

Now with MusicCast, it doesn’t matter what you are listening to, whether it is your favourite music streaming service, the new TV show you’re addicted to, that flashy new CD or even a classic vinyl record, you can listen seamlessly and completely throughout your home.

At the heart of MusicCast is an intuitive app, which you can completely customise with room names and even photos to represent different areas of your home. For a sleek and simplified control interface, any playback options that aren’t connected or required can be also be hidden.

One handy feature in the new Yamaha models that feature MusicCast is their ability to transform each MusicCast product into a Wi-Fi extender, delivering maximum network strength throughout larger homes. In addition, Airplay and Bluetooth connectivity is included, with the ability to also send music to existing Bluetooth devices – regardless of the brand. Any Bluetooth speaker (or set of headphones) in turn has the ability to join the MusicCast network.

With a resurgence of high-resolution formats sparking the appetites of next-generation audiophiles, Yamaha’s new range of products promise to deliver just that – audiophile grade music throughout your home.

Altogether, 30 models will be on offer before Christmas in Australia, including three new Wireless Speaker variations, Sound Bars (and Sound Base), Hi-Fi Components, AV Receivers and Home Theatre Packages.

Choose to start with one speaker (minimum $349 RRP) or the ultimate in home theatre; MusicCast can be customised to suit the needs of the entire household.
