Audiophile Sound, Exquisite Design

The WXA-50 features a solid metal body with an aluminum cover and a slim, compact design that fits just about anywhere. Under the hood, you’ll find high-performance components and advanced circuitry that deliver powerful, sonically-pure amplification.

Control at Your Fingertips

Connect the WXA-50 to any pair of traditional wired speakers (bookshelf, tower, in-ceiling or outdoor speakers), then download the free MusicCast app to connect it to your existing home Wi-Fi to create a powerful streaming audio system.

Quickly select sources, browse your music library and control playback right from your smartphone or tablet. You can also control sound EQ settings from the app.

MusicCast

Access all of your music with a simple app and wirelessly stream it throughout your home using your existing Wi-Fi® network.

  • Stream it all. Listen to Pandora®, Spotify, Napster®, SiriusXM Internet Radio, thousands of free internet radio stations and the music stored on your smart devices and computers.

  • Wireless connectivity. All MusicCast products are fully loaded with Wi-Fi and AirPlay®.

  • Expand to a whole home audio experience. When you’re ready, add MusicCast wireless speakers, sound bars or other devices in up to 9 other rooms and listen throughout your home.

  • No wires, easy installation. By using MusicCast, you don't need to fuss with placing wires through walls into other rooms.


Bluetooth® and AirPlay®

Stream virtually any audio source via Bluetooth® as an input to the WXA-50. Bluetooth sources can be redistributed through Wi-Fi to other MusicCast devices. Or stream using AirPlay from an Apple® device to a single unit.

Slim, Compact Design

Only 2" tall and 8-3/8" wide, it can be placed horizontally or vertically, allowing it to fit neatly in almost any space.

Rack Shelf Friendly

With the feet removed, the WXA-50 is only 1-5/8" high, allowing it to be placed on a rack shelf within a 1U high rack space. Two units can be placed side-by-side on a 19" wide shelf.

Superior Audio Technology

Yamaha’s relentless pursuit of sonic purity is clearly evident in the engineering of the WXA-50. The preamp circuitry uses the same high-performance ESS Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) found in high-end Yamaha AV receivers and a proprietary power supply ground configuration prevents sound degradation. A 48-bit digital volume control provides much greater precision and quality than conventional controls. A highly-rigid metal chassis supplies the stability necessary for clear, powerful music reproduction.

High-Resolution Audio

The WXA-50 supports high-resolution audio – including FLAC/WAV/AIFF up to 192 kHz/24-bit, Apple Lossless (ALAC) up to 96 kHz/24-bit and DSD up to 5.6 MHz – for more accurate reproduction of sonic details, presence and atmosphere.

Yamaha Proprietary Sound Processing

The Compressed Music Enhancer greatly improves sound reproduction from smartphones or other compressed sources, like MP3 files. Volume-adaptive EQ automatically adjusts the bass/treble balance according to the volume level. Advanced Bass Extension provides a deeper, richer low-end sound — great for use with compact or in-wall speakers. Direct Mode allows you to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are, without any processing.

One-Touch Controls

Pressing any button on the front panel turns the unit on and initiates playback of the previously selected source providing quick and easy access to your favorite music.

The WXA-50 also comes with an ultra-slim remote offering six presets, so you can quickly access your favorite Internet radio stations even when your smartphone or tablet’s not handy.

Pro-Grade Connectivity and Control

The WXA-50 supports professional-grade features including:

  • High-quality binding posts

  • Wired Ethernet port

  • Wireless off switch

  • Optical and analog inputs

  • Subwoofer out

  • Trigger in/out

  • Remote in

Low Power Consumption

The WXA-50 consumes less than two watts of power in standby mode. When the power is on, power consumption is still a low 15 watts. In addition, the Auto Power Standby feature lets you save energy by automatically turning the power off after two, four, eight or 12 hours.

Yamaha Factory Refurbished

Buying a Yamaha Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged with original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Yamaha product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Yamaha repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 714-522-9888)

Yamaha, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Yamaha certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Yamaha Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can’t provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.
