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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
