Your music everywhere

MusicCast employs a high performance wireless network to deliver music and audio enjoyment. It can stream digital music content from your smartphone, PC or NAS to other MusicCast devices in your home. Play the same song in several different rooms, or enjoy whatever music you want, anywhere in your home.

Listen to any and all of your smartphone music sources via wireless Bluetooth® or AirPlay® connection, and enjoy music from your music apps, Internet radio stations, or YouTube™-type video services.

Control just as you want

It’s all in the palm of your hands — with the free MusicCast CONTROLLER app. Just tap and flick, and set the music you want. What’s more, you can call up EQ settings and fine-tune the sound of your music sources to best match the listening space or your personal preferences, with separate settings for the High, Mid and Low bands.

Use the comprehensive MusicCast app to easily make alarm settings on the ISX-18 ― not only wakeup time and volume, but even the sound source, and other functions. What’s more, you can have the volume of the selected source to increase gradually, for a gentle wakeup.

Full, dynamic sound you wouldn’t expect from such a small package. The ISX-18 features a two-way, dual-speaker system with a 2.5 cm (1″) tweeter and 5 cm (2″) woofer. With a high-quality magnet and a special bass reflex port, the small enclosure puts out remarkably powerful sound with excellent bass response — taking full advantage of Yamaha’s famed audio expertise and technology.
