Designed for those who value flexibility in their music system, the MusicCast VINYL 500 Turntable offers a range of listening options. In addition to functioning as a wireless turntable, a built-in phono preamp and line output mean the MusicCast Vinyl 500 can be connected to an existing hi-fi setup—enhancing the system with seamless access to major music streaming platforms like Spotify, TIDAL and Deezer, or adding Bluetooth convenience into the mix. For Apple fans, the inclusion of AirPlay 2 means your hi-fi setup can join in on the action when streaming your music to devices throughout the home. Alternatively, a direct phono output on the unit can be used for connecting to an external phono preamp for those looking for the highest sound quality.

Hardware details include a die-cast aluminium platter, straight tonearm for an open sound, and a belt-drive motor to minimise noise caused by vibrations. For easy control, Yamaha’s MusicCast app provides access to playlists and settings for each room via an intuitive interface—giving you full control over your listening experience.
