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 multi-room operation.’ Those without MusicCast can instead operate the Yamaha TT-N503 wireless via AirPlay and 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 outboard phono stage, or the phono stage built into a pre-amp or integrated amplifier.

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,’ Wykes told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine. ‘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 omits the wireless circuitry. Available next month, the Yamaha TT-N503 will sell for $899 (RRP) and the Yamaha TT-N303 for $599 (RRP).
