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-optimize 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 pre outs 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 pre outs may
also be used to connect powered subwoofers or subwoofer amps.

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 theater to a bedroom TV system to in-ceiling speakers in
the kitchen – can all work beautifully together.

Stream It All

Access all of your favorite music, including built-in
streaming services and music libraries on smartphones, tablets and
networked-attached storage devices.
(Streaming service availability varies by region.)

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.

There’s an (Amazing) App for It

It’s also easy to set up and control with the free MusicCast
app, which offers unique personalization features including the ability to
assign custom images to rooms, and to rename, rearrange and hide sources.

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

High-Resolution Audio

Experience every detail of your favorite recordings. The QS
supports high-res audio playback up to 192 kHz/24-bit, and employs the same
premium ESS Sabre DACs (Digital-to-Analog 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
