    Solid but not Excellent Sound

    These little speakers fit into the environment in an almost invisible footprint. I have purchased three of them and now simply have a five zone sound system. I had outdoor speakers, my home theater and I added one to the master bedroom, the family room, and my office. Bass is good, almost too strong for the rest of the sound. I found them lacking in the vocals in many songs, but not all songs. Since these are used mostly for background music, they work quite well. While $180 may seem like a lot for a just adequate speaker, the cost justification is in the ease at which the enter the system. Plug it in, turn it on, synch it, name it, you are playing music in a new room. Compare that to running wires, it's a no brainer. Now, I don't want to come across as negative about the sound, rather I would just have preferred something a little sweeter with stronger vocal performance. With the app, you can adjust low, midrange, and high frequencies. With that adjustment, I've gotten them sounding pretty good in my environment. Which by the way is pretty large as I have 10' ceilings. They perform well. Consider them if you have a Yamaha system that supports them.

    Poor customer service "supporting" a poor unit

    Posted
    Rickeye

    Do not ignore other reviews complaining about poor Wi-Fi connection. It is true. Could not get it to connect and therefore could not get a firmware update that might have helped. Customer "service" with hold time of 8 minutes, then told the tech folk would call me back in the next 48 hours! So I am supposed to sit with speaker in hand for two days, waiting? Unlike them, I work! Worse than cable TV. Asked for a supervisor, but told they were all in a meeting. That's it. Returning it for a different unit. Yamaha receivers are also noted for poor AirPlay and wireless performance. Not an isolated problem. Just wish customer loyalty meant something these days. Twenty years in and this is the result. Time to rethink it.

    I was rerunning wires through my family room wall to the patio after re-stuccoing and trying to figure out how to camouflage them when I realized there must be better technology, and there was. Wi-Fi ready speakers I can run with my phone. You'll have to upload your favorite CDs to your computer, then covert and transfer them to ITunes on your phone, but once your music is on your phone, you can plug the speakers in anyway, including outside, and drive the music from your phone. Great sound and very portable.

    Doesn't play from Yamaha MusicCast receiver!

    Posted
    DavidC

    From the store information, website, and Yamaha flier in the receiver box, it states "play all your music" even showing the WX-010 wireless speaker. After 6 hours today trying everything, even linking its room to the receiver in the living room, and vice-versa, it will not even read my receiver or HDMI-connected DVD player, let alone play it. The WX-010 appears to be a glorified Spotify or net radio station player, not a wireless speaker for other rooms in my house. Am I missing something here?

    I bought two of these to go with my RX-V681 reciever. First of all these integrated flawlessly so I can play music in my Living Room, Kitchen, and Bedroom. The app works great, I had no problem setting up the speakers, and can direct the music to whichever rooms I want. The speakers sound good, not great, it really depends on the type of music. There is not a lot of low end, but the mids and highs are great. I got these on sale for $100 each, and for that price they are great, but I wouldn’t pay the $180 MSRP for them.

    If you like the wireless option for remote speakers on your Yamaha home audio then this is very good. It has small footprint but packs a decent punch. The connection is very stable but somewhat intricate to figure out the app and all the options available. I like that it can operate as a standalone bluetooth or networked speaker. Has a longer power cord too. I wish it was PoE capable, that would be my only dislike. But it is a very good little wifi speaker for the Yamaha systems.

    Easy to setup and great sound

    Have two of these speakers and they are easy to setup using the app. Have been pleased with the interface with XM through the app and you can easily play from other sources too. Sound was better than I expected. Was happy with original purchase so I bought a second one. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is every once in a while it will mysteriously disconnect from my network and I have to power the speaker on and off to reconnect. Not a huge deal, but it does do it from time to time.

    I have a MusicCast receiver and have been looking for a way to add wireless speakers to another room. I researched SONOS and BOSE and the Yamaha offered similar performance for a better price so I tried it. The speaker connects easily and has very good sound. Occasional delays in the broadcast to the farthest speaker but I believe that has more to do with the wifi single in that area.

    The WX-010 is a wireless speaker from Yamaha's MusicCast multiroom range that streams music via DLNA, Bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify and more. It's a more compact version of last year's WX-030 speaker, selling for around £50 less.Full Review
