Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Yamaha has re­leased a low-cost wire­less turntable, the Yamaha TT-N503, that can stream to a Yamaha Mu­s­ic­Cast de­vice of your choice over wi-fi, or to any Blue­tooth de­vice, elim­i­nat­ing the need for a wired con­nec­tion. ‘ The wire­less Mu­s­ic­Cast de­vice you choose to stream to via wi-fi could be any­thing from a wire­less speaker to an am­pli­fier, to a sound bar in the ever-grow­ing Yamaha Mu­s­ic­Cast eco-sys­tem,’ said Rus­sell Wykes, of Yamaha Mu­sic Aus­tralia, ‘ with the award-win­ning Mu­s­ic­Cast eco-sys­tem also en­abling mul­ti­room op­er­a­tion.’ Those with­out Mu­s­ic­Cast can in­stead op­er­ate the Yamaha TT-N503 wire­lessly via AirPlay or Blue­tooth, whilst for wired op­er­a­tion, users can elect to use the TT-N503’s in­built phono am­pli­fier to con­nect di­rectly to an am­pli­fier or re­ceiver, or by­pass the phono stage to use an ex­ter­nal phono stage.

‘ When you look back at the his­tory of hi-fi, Yamaha fea­tures promi­nently, hav­ing pro­duced nu­mer­ous prod­ucts that have helped to shape the way we lis­ten to mu­sic to­day,’ said Wykes. ‘ We’re now look­ing to in­tro­duce a new gen­er­a­tion to hi-fi and are ex­tremely ex­cited to be do­ing so with the launch of our new turnta­bles.’ The other turntable Wykes was re­fer­ring to is the Yamaha TT-N303, which is sim­i­lar to the TT-N503 but lacks the wire­less fea­tures. Avail­able now, the Yamaha TT-N503 sells for $899 (RRP) and the Yamaha TT-N303 for $599 (RRP).
