MusicCast Expands Entertainment Possibilities
MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. It can also share the music from external devices such as a TV or CD player connected to the NX-N500. Audio content from Bluetooth-connected devices can also be streamed to MusicCast devices in multiple rooms.
Precision Plus Musicality. This Is the HiFi Tuning Concept
Inheriting all the precision of the classic NS-10M studio monitor, the NX-N500 is a modern monitor that boasts musical expressiveness exceeding its class. By repeatedly evaluating the tuning of the left and right speakers at 2 to 3m audition position intervals, it achieves stereophonic expression that liberates the true feeling of the music. Smooth and immediate vocals, a sense of the body of the melody instrument, a solid backbone to the sound and high density audio data. This is Yamaha’s answer to the demand for powered speakers capable of handling hi-res sound.
The New Standard in Powered Speakers
Nowadays you want to get the most from the music on your PCs and other devices, not just your audio system. Our concept is that speakers should produce real listening pleasure.

Featuring full-spec USB DAC, and compatible with Bluetooth®, WiFi and other network systems. Why only be able to listen to music close to your desktop computer or TV? Make them your second HiFi system. Your ears have learned to tell the difference. Let them. A compact 2-way from Yamaha.
Discrete Configuration Analog Amplifier and Bi-Amp Drive Produce Sound with a Spectacular Feeling of Freedom
The power amplifier component, critical to powered speakers, utilizes a discrete configuration analog amplifier. It produces strong, expansive sound, all in a bi-amp system featuring a 45W woofer and 25W tweeter. By directly driving each unit individually, it produces powerful sound while maintaining the feeling of high S/N ratio.
Balanced Transmission and Balanced Connection Thoroughly Eliminate Sound Quality Degradation Due to Noise
In principle, balanced transmission cancels the external noise that becomes mixed with the signal during transmission. In the NX-N500, all digital audio input signals undergo balance conversion in the L-channel speaker before being transmitted to the R-channel speaker. XLR cable is used to establish balanced connection between speakers. This approach thoroughly eliminates noise.
Easy setup with your smartphone or tablet
Use your smartphone or tablet together with the MusicCast CONTROLLER app to operate the speaker and change settings quickly and easily. The same Controller app functions as a remote control for all your MusicCast-compatible devices too.;"
