Yamaha to support global music and entertainment platform TIDAL on select models of the company's growing MusicCast multiroom audio ecosystem.

Select Yamaha MusicCast products like the WX-010 wireless speaker (above) will now support the streaming platform TIDAL.

"Now with the MusicCast family of products’ integration with TIDAL, a new universe of high-performance home listening experiences exists for music lovers everywhere,” said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America.

Yamaha today announced that it will support global music and entertainment platform TIDAL on select models of the company’s growing MusicCast multiroom audio ecosystem.

Owners of compatible MusicCast products who subscribe to the popular streaming music service will be able to enjoy TIDAL’s more than 46 million songs right in their home from popular and emerging artists around the world.

Support will first arrive before May through a firmware update for the just-announced Yamaha RX-V683, RX-V583 and RX-V483 AV receivers. In the weeks to follow, the service will roll out to other select MusicCast AV receivers, sound bars, wireless speakers and wireless streaming amps.

Yamaha MusicCast will support both TIDAL Premium (320 Kbps AAC) and TIDAL HiFi (CD-quality 1411 Kbps lossless FLAC) services.

"To get the most out of TIDAL high-fidelity streaming it’s essential to have quality audio gear that can reproduce the clarity, detail and nuance in the original recording," said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "Now with the MusicCast family of products’ integration with TIDAL, a new universe of high-performance home listening experiences exists for music lovers everywhere.”
