Yamaha have announced a new version of their home audio streaming system, the MusicCAST2. MusicCAST2 currently consists of a touchscreen LCD controller, the MCX-RC100 Network Music Commander, and two types of Network Music Players, the MCX-A300, which has an integrated amplifier, or the MCX-P200, which is non-amplified for integration with an existing AV setup. The whole system uses WiFi b/g to communicate and stream, and can access both music stored locally - on a NAS, PC or MAC, USB stick, Bluetooth device or shared network folder - or streaming from Rhapsody and other internet radio services. As well as the 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, the Commander remote control has a trackpad and offers independent or joined control over up to 32 different zones. In addition to controlling distributed audio, the MusicCAST2 system can be used as a universal remote control; the Commander has an IR port, and Yamaha offer IR blasters to fit to your existing AV rack. Suggested pricing is $500 for the Commander remote, and $400 for the zone players. Slashgear source article.
