Luxurious Sound, All the Time
 
Thanks to Yamaha’s superior sound processing technologies, you’ll enjoy great sound from all your music sources — no matter what their quality, or your listening environment, or the kind of speakers you’re using. When listening to audio from smartphones or other compressed sources, the Compressed Music Enhancer greatly improves the sound at all frequency levels. Volume-adaptive EQ automatically adjusts the bass / treble balance according to the volume level. Advanced Bass Extension provides a deeper, richer low-end sound — it’s great for compact or in-wall speakers. And a Direct Mode allows you to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are without any processing.

High Level Technologies for High Quality Sound
 
The WXC-50 reaps the benefits of Yamaha’s advanced audio technologies and circuit designs. The preamp circuitry, for example, minimises digital jitter and uses the same high performance ESS DAC that is found in high-end AV receivers. Yamaha’s proprietary power supply ground configuration, called DAC on Pure Ground, ensures that the power supply will never negatively affect sound quality. The 48-bit digital volume control provides much greater precision and quality that conventional digital or analogue controls. In addition, a highly rigid, metal chassis supplies the stability necessary for powerful, clear music reproduction.
Yamaha WXC50 Wireless Streaming Pre-Amp 
 

Supports DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC / WAV /AIFF 192 kHz / 24-bit for High Resolution Reproduction
 
The WXC-50 supports a wide range of high resolution formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz, FLAC and WAV, AIFF 192 kHz / 24-bit, and ALAC (Apple Lossless) 96 kHz / 24-bit for iTunes. Whether from a music download site or from music streaming services, you can enjoy the full benefits of high resolution sound sources, for a feeling like you’re right inside a concert hall.

Player mode
 
If you want to adjust the volume from the Hi-Fi amp or AV receiver, the WXC-50 allows you to turn off PRE AMP mode and use the device as a simple network audio player. Switching to Player mode bypasses the volume and any processing for direct playback of high-resolution audio.
