    Yamaha WX-030 reviews

    WX-030 MusicCast Wireless Speaker (White/Silver) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Souds Great These Speakers sound very good with a MusicCast system. Set up is quick and easy. I do think it would be a better product if it had some sort of mini plug input to play an external music device through the speaker. As it stands you would not be able to change music sources without the APP, only on unit controls are basically for power and volume.Overall a pretty slick music system though. I have 2 and have set them up as a stereo pair, but individual speaker use in multiple rooms is also good. Another issue is that the buttons for volume and power are very small and could use to be raised or indented so you can feel them as they are impossible to see or feel in a dim lit room.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once connected works great, sounds great as well. Connected these to a musiccast network. Used a tablet and a smartphone. Tablet couldn't connect them, smart phone did. Can't explain the difference but spent a lot of time on the tablet before trying the cell phone. Once connected it has worked flawlessly. I got two and hooked them up as stereo system which required going on the web site to figure out how. You would think they would inclued that info. Stereo sounds stereophonic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for the size Surprisingly great sound. Works perfectly alone or linked to my Yamaha receiver. I have in my bedroom so I have the same music playing throughout my house.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Software Improving Just to be clear, I bought a pair of these speakers to work in conjunction with my Yamaha R-N602 Stereo Receiver (which is also MusicCast enabled) which I've had for about a year now. My setup is pretty simple: I have the R-N602 in the living room hooked up to a pair of Polk tower speakers. I wanted to set up a simple system in kitchen which is on the other end of the house, so with a little research I settled on the WX-030. After a few hiccups with respect to WiFi coverage (long story short - I bought a PowerLine WiFi extender which boosted the signal strength my WX-030's were getting from a pathetic 6% to a whopping 95-100%), it's all pretty seamless. I'm not really sure how effective the WiFi antennas are in these speakers (there is no external antenna on the unit), so just make sure you have good signal strength where you want to put them. The stereo pairing is very easy, and the devices WILL remain paired even if you unplug them which is pretty handy. One of the great advantages of the MusicCast system is that you can link rooms on the fly through the iOS / Android app and have those rooms play the same music in sync. If you have a receiver like the R-N602 you can even stream from a turntable plugged into the phono to, say, the WX-030 you set up in your kitchen, bathroom, backyard, wherever (as long as you have good network coverage). While I don't have a turntable to test with, I did try with a Chromecast Audio plugged into one of the optical inputs on my 602. Everything was smooth and perfectly in sync, no lag or dropouts. I found these to be a bit bassy out of the box, but you can easily dial that back through the high/mid/low EQ built into the app. With all that being said, the MusicCast software still feels somewhat unpolished at the time of this writing, although Yamaha just pushed v2.0 out which finally added playlist and queue support.
