Extra Info:

Bought from this forum late last year, used for about 2 months before I got excited and impulsively bought a Node. I was pleasantly surprised by this unit though - heaps of features, great looks and very decent sounding as both a pre-amp and network DAC.


Comes with original packaging and accessories. Happy to post at buyer's expense. Also selling a Yamaha WXAD-10 ($110).


From the Yamaha website:

I recently got one of these. Very versatile bit of gear!


Yes, you can connect to a computer via the RCA aux in. The best way IMO is via  optical/toslink. That way you can take advantage of the DAC in the WXC-50.


The USB is only for music stored on thumbdrives. Not sure about plugging in an iphone etc. 


With bluetooth, you can:

  • Play music from your phone/tablet to the WXC-50
  • Play streaming/networked music OUT to a bluetooth headphone/speaker
