The rules of Playlist Roulette are simple: gather a few chums and then each put your entire music collection on shuffle. The one who lasts the highest number of tracks before being booed into a ball of embarrassment is declared the victor.
It’s brutal, especially when that long-forgotten I-only-put-it-on-there-for-a-joke Agadoo megamix bellows out across the living room.
Or even the entire house, if you have a Yamaha MusicCast wireless multiroom rig.
It’s versatile enough for you to slink away in exile and put on some Jive Bunny in another room, too – even if it isn’t your house. All MusicCast products come with Bluetooth onboard, so you can stream to any compatible Bluetooth product. Or from your smartphone or tablet. It’s seamless.
A product range for super streaming
There are 23 compatible products currently in the range, ranging from soundbars, micro-systems and stereo amps to CD players, desktop speakers and AV receivers – including the high-end Aventage range for beaming movie and TV sound.
Or you can connect your own sources – any sources, even turntables – and then send them across your MusicCast network to Yamaha products in other rooms. Every MusicCast product can share its inputs with anything else it connects to. And they can all handle hi-res 24-bit/192kHz material.
And it’s all controlled from one app. The free MusicCast Controller app for iOS and Android lets you select rooms, sources and songs; play separate tunes in differentrooms, or bring everyone to the party with one stream.
Just make sure you play some decent music, eh?
The free MusicCast Controller app for iOS and Android puts a world’s worth of music in your hand. Access streaming services and internet radio, plus NAS-based files and more – and play it all in any room. You can even customise it with pictures of your house for easy reference.
Bluetooth on board
Send music directly to any Bluetooth speaker from the internet, USB sticks, NAS drives, CD players, turntables and more. If you can connect it to a MusicCast input, you can stream it everywhere via Bluetooth.
All MusicCast products support 24-bit/192kHz WAV, FLAC and AIFF files, and you can stream everything from MP3, WMA and AAC to Apple Lossless and DSD besides on products across the range.
