Yamaha TSX-N237D: Updated version of the desktop audio system MusicCast 200

Yamaha launches an updated version of the Yamaha TSX-N237D desktop audio system (MusicCast 200) with support for WI-FI, Musiccast, AirPlay, Bluetooth, USB, CD and digital radio, in fact, this is an absolute analogue of the previous super popular model TSX-B237, but with wireless support chargers for smartphones and MusicCast. MusicCast was developed by Yamaha from the ground up to provide a stable and reliable multiroom system, as well as equip it with modern functionality. As we already mentioned, one of the most interesting features of MusicCast is that it can include any compatible Yamaha components. That is, you can simply build a system from the components you already have, instead of purchasing a set of new equipment, and will not be tied to any specific set.


MusicCast technology is integrated into many models of Yamaha equipment, including sound bars, AV receivers, wireless speakers and Hi-Fi systems. This means that to create a multiroom system you do not need to buy any specific set of equipment and it can be built from available compatible components. And even if you haven’t thought about building a multi-room audio system, but you have several Yamaha devices with MusicCast at your disposal, you might want to try building one just for fun. Simple integration within one network is an indispensable condition for a modern multiroom system, as is support for the latest High-resolution audio formats, as well as convenient control. MusicCast has all of the above advantages, plus excellent flexibility in use, which makes it very attractive.


All MusicCast components have built-in Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz, 802.11 b/g/n) and support DLNA 1.5, so they can access network storage devices, and also receive signals directly using Bluetooth and AirPlay. This also means you can listen to music from a source connected to one of the MusicCast components through any other. For example, you are listening to TV through a Yamaha soundbar, and then you need to go to another room, and if active acoustics MusicCast is installed in it, you can continue listening to the audio of the TV program. In addition to playing audio from CDs, USB drives and Bluetooth 4.2 compatible devices, the device supports Qi wireless charging. Now, to charge a smartphone that supports this charging standard, just place the Yamaha TSX-N237D (MusicCast 200) speaker system on top and charging will start automatically.


The Yamaha TSX-N237D audio system (MusicCast 200) is equipped with two 80 mm speakers, the total power of which is 50 W (6 Ohm, 1 kHz, 10% THD). Frequency range 60 Hz-20 kHz. In addition, the device has a built-in FM tuner and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The system easily recognizes the following audio file formats: WAV (192 kHz/24 bits), FLAC/AIFF (192 kHz/24 bits), ALAC (48 kHz/24 bits), MP3/WMA/MPEG4-AAC (48 kHz/320 kbit/s) . A remote control is included in the kit. The LED backlit display shows the current time and date, information about set alarms, and current track, folder and artist information. Weighing 4 kg, the dimensions of the kit are 370x252x111 mm. Available in two color options: black and white.


You can connect the Yamaha TSX-N237D (MusicCast 200) speaker to your home network using an Ethernet cable, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. In addition to supporting MusicCast multi-room technology, the speaker is ready to work with streaming services Spotify, Pandora and Rhapsody, as well as SiriusXM radio. The maximum signal quality supported by the Yamaha TSX-N237D (MusicCast 200) when streaming via DLNA is 24 bit/96 kHz in Apple Lossless and 24 bit/192 kHz in FLAC, AIFF and WAV formats.


However, the real fun begins when the source is connected, the track is selected, and music starts playing from the system’s two 8cm diameter speakers. You are surprised at how emotionally and harmoniously familiar compositions from the test selection are presented, on which much more serious devices broke their teeth. Using a three-band equalizer, you can easily achieve maximum output of audio information from a specific media for the selected volume. Thanks to its simple design, the Yamaha TSX-N237D (MusicCast 200) system fits perfectly into almost any interior. Convenient buttons on the top panel are used to control the operation of the device.
