Superior Audio Technology

(P)Yamaha's relentless pursuit of sonic purity is clearly evident in the engineering of the WXC-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.(/P)

Image Feature

High-Resolution Audio

(P)The WXC-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.(/P)

Image Feature

Yamaha Proprietary Sound Processing

(P)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 Processing provides a deeper, richer low-end sound - great for use with compact or in-wall speakers. Direct playback mode allows you to play back high-resolution audio sources just as they are, without any processing.(/P)

Image Feature

Player Mode

(P)If you want to adjust volume from a connected Hi-Fi amp or AV receiver, the WXC-50 allows you to turn off "preamp" mode and use the device as a network audio player. Switching to "player" mode bypasses the volume control and any processing, allowing direct playback of high-resolution audio.(/P)

Image Feature

One-Touch Controls

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
