Whole Home Audio: Redefined

 

Ingenious Integration

Designed from the ground up for custom installation, the “QS” represents the ultimate integrated solution for filling every room in a home with extraordinary sound.

Slim Yet Powerful

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.

Expands Easily

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.

True Audio Excellence

A Family Like No Other

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.

Control All Your Equipment at Will with Just a Single App

There are a wide variety of capabilities like the Link function that lets you play the same song in different rooms simultaneously and the ability to freely customize the room screen with your own pictures. Make your musical world even more exciting

 

Stream It All

Access all of your favourite music, including built-in streaming services and music libraries on smartphones, tablets and network-attached storage devices.  (Streaming service availability varies by region and may change or be discontinued without notice.)

 

Plays Nicely with Everything

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.

 

3rd-Party Control

The QS supports IP control by 3rd-party control systems used in many of today’s most advanced smart homes.

Engineered to Sound Extraordinary

Audiophile-Grade Amplification

No ordinary amp, the QS employs ultra-efficient ICEpower integrated circuits to deliver eight channels of pristine, musically-dynamic digital amplification at 50 watts/channel (8 ohms) with an outstanding 10 Hz to 22 kHz (+0/-3 dB) frequency response and 106 dB signal-to-noise ratio. It is 4 ohm capable at 100 watts/channel and bridgeable to 200 watts/channel (8 ohms).

 

Goodbye Ground Loop Hum

The curse of the custom integrator: ground loop hum, a common and vexing side effect of connecting a bunch of electronics together in a rack. The QS takes care of it with a brilliantly-engineered differential circuit design. Sometimes it’s what you don’t hear that sounds the most amazing.

 

High-Resolution Audio

Experience every detail of your favourite recordings. The QS supports high-res audio playback up to 192 kHz/24-bit, and employs the same premium ESS Sabre DACs (Digital-to-Analogue Converters) and PML capacitors used in our flagship AVENTAGE AV receivers.

Uniquely Yamaha

The audio performance of the QS is further enhanced with a suite of exclusive Yamaha technologies, including our Compressed Music Enhancer, Advanced Bass Extension Processing and volume adaptive EQ. The result – it always sounds great.

Custom-Built for Custom

 

Versatile Installation

Mount it in a rack with the included ears or remove the ears for shelf installations. The included magnetic faceplate discourages tampering and provides the perfect cosmetic finish.

 

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.

Three Ways to Handle External Sources

In addition to supporting external sources through linking with MusicCast receivers and sound bars, the QS offers an Aux input that can be selected for playback in any zone and a Cut-In input that automatically senses an input signal and temporarily overrides the selected source. This gives you flexibility to integrate media players, CD changers or even paging systems. Thru-Outs let you set up a bus to additional QS units.

Unique Chime Generator

The Chime contact closure inputs let you generate a doorbell chime or, for example, an alert for a gate from a common switch. Output zones and chime sound selection can be configured using the Web Setup.

 

Web Setup

Access Basic or Advanced settings via a Web Setup menu and store commonly-used profiles for faster configuration of future projects.
