Features

MusicCast

MusicCast is a new revolution in network audio. Use all your MusicCast products together or separately; it’s completely up to you. Control it all from one intuitive and simple to use app. Built into an exciting new range of HiFi and Home Cinema products, MusicCast allows you to mix and match components and to expand your setup in the future. All new from Yamaha, the MusicCast system brings everything to everywhere for everyone.

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 our 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. 

The New Standard in Powered Speakers

At Yamaha, we believe that HiFi speakers should bring real listening pleasure. To this end, we designed the NX-N500 with an analogue amplifier and with an all-new speaker unit to handle high resolution audio.

Featuring full-spec USB DAC and compatible with Bluetooth, WiFi and other network systems, the NX-N500 easily connects to a range of devices and equipment.

Discrete Analogue Amplifier and Bi-Amp Drive: Sound with a Sense of Freedom

The NX-N500's power amplifier, essential for any powered speaker, has a discrete bi-amp configuration allowing it to produce a strong, expansive sound. Featuring a 45W woofer and 25W tweeter, the NX-N500 directly drives each speaker individually to offer a powerful sound without reducing the signal-to-noise ratio.

Balanced Transmission and 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.

3cm Dome Tweeter for High Resolution Reproduction and A-PMD 13cm Woofer Unit

With a 2-way, 2-speaker configuration, the NX-N500 utilizes a 3cm dome tweeter capable of handling 40kHz high bandwidth playback in order to reproduce the rich amount of audio information unique to hi-res sound sources. And by incorporating a thick waveguide it achieves smooth and accurate high frequency reproduction. The woofer employs the same New Advanced PMD diaphragm used in the high-grade Soavo model. With deeply expressive power to its low frequencies and comfortably relaxed high frequencies that feel free of peaks, the NX-N500 triumphs over both highs and lows.

Rigid Enclosure Specially Designed to Suppress Unwanted Resonance

The enclosure employs thick MDF with high rigidity to produce uniform acoustic characteristics, and features the total three-way mitered-joint construction traditionally used in Yamaha high-end speakers. Suppressing unwanted resonance and highly accurate, it helps ensure that you’ll hear sound with an outstanding sense of resolution.

High-Grade USB DAC Supports DSD 5.6MHz Native Resolution and PCM 384kHz/32-bit for High Resolution Reproduction

The NX-N500’s high performance USB DAC is a full-spec PCM 384kHz/32-bit unit with support for DSD 5.6MHz native resolution. It is compatible with asynchronous transmission and can perform low-jitter transmission by using its own master clock, without being affected by the PC clock. It also makes use of an ASIO driver, it achieves lower latency and higher throughput and along with Windows PC compatibility, it’s also compatible with MAC OS Integer Mode, allowing 32-bit playback even in MAC OS.

Exceptionally High Performance ESS 32-bit D/A Converter

The D/A converter for the NX-N500 is the ES9010K2M from ESS Technology, Inc. not only itshigh precision processing of 32-bit audio, but also the ability to handle large amounts of audio data with full PCM 384kHz, DSD 5.6MHz native reproduction, strength in the low register, and high quality definition in the high register. Since the built-in D/A converter generates its own master clock, an original Jitter Elimination function is also included, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter.

Wireless Music Streaming via Bluetooth or AirPlay

Enjoy music from your smartphone or tablet wirelessly using a Bluetooth connection. You can also use the convenient AirPlay function for wireless music streaming from an iPhone, iTouch or iPad. Even with music from your smartphone, the NX-N500 delivers powerful, high-quality sound.

Bluetooth Output for Convenient Music Streaming

The NX-N500 is equipped with the latest Bluetooth technology, making wireless operation more convenient than ever. You can stream music from the NX-N500 to Bluetooth headphones for private listening or to Bluetooth speakers.

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.

Streaming Services Offer a Huge Range of Listening Choices
Support for the music streaming services Spotify, Pandora, Juke, Napster, Rhapsody and Sirius XM means you’ll enjoy a wide variety of music content. Furthermore, support for the vTuner radio station database enables sampling of Internet radio broadcasts from around the world.

*Music service availability varies by region.

Indicator Displays the Speaker’s Operating Status and Playback Sound Source

The front of the speaker provides an LED display indicator color coded by operating status: orange for ECO Standby mode, green for network function, pink for AirPlay and sky blue for USB DAC, allowing easy, making it very easy to confirm the music source currently selected.

Other Notable Features
• Remote control allows easy performance of basic functions such as power on/off and audio source selection
