Returns and Repairs.

You may visit Len Wallis Audio and a staff member will assist you with any return or repair. This may include inspecting the goods, arranging for the goods to be repaired, or providing you with a replacement.

Goods must be returned within a reasonable time. 

If any goods cannot be easily returned to us due to their size, the fault or because they have been affixed or installed in your premises, please contact us and we will arrange an inspection to assess the goods.

Goods returned for repair will be assessed and/or repaired within a reasonable time. You may be provided with an indicative repair time, which time may vary due to reasons beyond ours or the repairer’s reasonable control, such as part availability and incorrect fault description.

You may be required to pay labour, assessment and/or freight fees, such as where goods are assessed to have been damaged by misuse or accident, or where your rights under the Australian Consumer Law or any manufacturer’s warranty do not apply. We may provide you with an indicative fee, which may vary due to reasons beyond our control.

If any goods that you return are capable of retaining user generated data such as files stored on a hard drive, and songs stored on a portable media player, the replacement or repair of the goods may result in loss of the data. In these circumstances, we recommend you back up data to prevent data loss, and remove sensitive or confidential data, as a party assessing and/or repairing your goods may be required to view data in the course of carrying out the assessment. We will not be responsible for any data loss.

In some circumstances, goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.

Make your old Hi-Fi gear new again. The WXC-50 lets you access a wide variety of audio content including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and music streaming services – bringing your old Hi-Fi System into the modern age. Alternatively, stream audio from your Components across the MusicCast network.

Use Your Favourite Audio Equipment with MusicCast
Even if your present Hi-Fi amp or AV receiver is not compatible with a network or MusicCast, simply by adding the WXC-50, you can easily enjoy network audio or MusicCast (multi-room audio).

Stream via Bluetooth® or AirPlay®
You can hear all the music sources from your smartphone via wireless Bluetooth or AirPlay connection. You can play music from music apps, radio apps, or YouTube™-type video hosting services.

One Push Play
Pressing any button on the front panel turns the unit on and initiates playback of the previously selected source. Quick and easy access to your favourite music.

Six Preset Buttons on the Remote Control
Set the six numbered buttons on the remote control for your favourite network / USB sources, such as internet radio stations, NAS or USB stick albums or songs, then just press a button to instantly hear that station or song.

High Level Technologies for High Quality Sound
The WXC-50 reaps the benefits of Yamaha’s advanced audio technologies and circuit designs. The preamp circuitry, for example, minimises digital jitter and uses the same high performance ESS DAC that is found in high-end AV receivers. Yamaha’s proprietary power supply ground configuration, called DAC on Pure Ground, ensures that the power supply will never negatively affect sound quality. The 48-bit digital volume control provides much greater precision and quality that conventional digital or analogue controls. In addition, a highly rigid, metal chassis supplies the stability necessary for powerful, clear music reproduction.

Supports DSD 5.6 MHz and FLAC / WAV /AIFF 192 kHz / 24-bit for High Resolution Reproduction
The WXC-50 supports a wide range of high resolution formats, including DSD 5.6 MHz, FLAC and WAV, AIFF 192 kHz / 24-bit, and ALAC (Apple Lossless) 96 kHz / 24-bit for iTunes. Whether from a music download site or from music streaming services, you can enjoy the full benefits of high resolution sound sources, for a feeling like you’re right inside a concert hall.

Retro Modern and Superior Quality
The simple design creates a stylish musical space and integrates beautifully with your audio system. With a high quality metal body and cool two-tone colouring, Yamaha’s fastidiousness extends to the exterior, for a completely enjoyable listening experience.

Put it Anywhere, Any Style
Only 214 mm (8-3/8″) wide, the compact body fits neatly in any space without drawing attention to itself. You can chose any convenient location, placing it horizontally or vertically, on its own or with other audio components.

Player mode
If you want to adjust the volume from the Hi-Fi amp or AV receiver, the WXC-50 allows you to turn off PRE AMP mode and use the device as a simple network audio player. Switching to Player mode bypasses the volume and any processing for direct playback of high-resolution audio.

Low Power Consumption
The WXC-50 consumes less than two watts of power in standby mode, When the power is on, power consumption is still a low 5W, and even when used for long periods, power consumption is environmentally friendly. In addition, the Auto Power Down lets you save energy by having the power automatically turned off after 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours.
