This Yamaha amplifier is specially designed for custom integration of whole home audio systems, the “QS” (Quad Streamer) provides four zones of audio streaming and eight channels of high-performance audio amplification in an ultra-slim, 1U-high, rack-mountable enclosure. Expandable and extremely flexible, the QS works with the MusicCast multi-room audio system, allowing it to be linked with home theater AV receivers, sound bars and Hi-Fi gear in a wide variety of configurations.
The QS packs four rooms of audio streaming and eight channels of audiophile-grade amplification into a remarkably slim, 1U-high enclosure, allowing you to fully-optimise your valuable rack real estate.
Multiple QS units can be used together to expand up to 32 zones with simultaneous playback of linked groups up to 20 zones each. In addition, the QS offers four zone preouts that enable it to be combined with the Yamaha XDA-AMP5400RK, a companion multi-room amplifier, to provide more power or more speaker coverage for large areas in a home. The preouts may also be used to connect powered subwoofers or subwoofer amps.
As a member of the MusicCast family, the QS integrates seamlessly with Yamaha AV receivers, sound bars and more. Now everything – from a surround sound home theatre to a bedroom TV system to in-ceiling speakers in the kitchen – can all work beautifully together.
Want to hear TV sound or vinyl records throughout the home? Link to a MusicCast receiver, sound bar or turntable to access audio from virtually any source.
It’s also easy to set up and control with the free MusicCast app, which offers unique personalisation features including the ability to assign custom images to rooms, and to rename, rearrange and hide sources.
Custom-Friendly Connectivity and Control
The QS is truly made for custom integration, with Euroblock-style speaker connectors, dual RJ-45 Ethernet ports and a detachable AC cable for smart connectivity, and IP, IR and 12 V Trigger Out jacks for versatile control.
