  • The PLUS (WX-030) is the first in a new generation of speaker from Yamaha. Serving as the entry point into Yamaha's acclaimed multi-room system - MusicCast - the PLUS enables the listener to listen to any song (via Spotify or Pandora music streaming services) as well as from any source connected to another MusicCast device on the same Wi Fi network. For example, TV sound can be streamed to the PLUS from a Sound Bar, or vinyl connected to a MusicCast amplifier.

  • "I strove to create something neutral and not overly unique - while also allowing the user to sense the intelligence that went into the design. I made the speaker's form such that it is the perfect size for placing anywhere, carrying around, or mounting on the wall. By offering the two simple but elegant colors of black and white - which, among other benefits, each express a different mood through the speaker's surface - we have made it easy to make the speaker blend in with any location and on any occasion. We also paid careful attention to the number and locations of the screws, the cover on the back of the speaker, and the unit's legs, devising ways for all these components to contribute to the aesthetics.
