Ratings and Reviews
Cool that it works, could be better
The user interface on this app is quite bizarre. It is basically functional, except for a few items that you still need to use the on-screen AV menus and physical remote control to change. And I have offered their criticism about that, which I agree with.
One user interface improvement I would like to see is with zones. When you choose a zone, the interface does not tell you what zone you have selected until you turn on the power. This ambiguity makes it confusing to know which zone you currently have selected if you happen to open the app at some later time. This should be an easy fix.
Other than that, I wish the AV device had independent volume control for both the main zone A and secondary zone B. For example if both zones are turned on, if you adjust the volume on zone A (main) it will also adjust zone B. This does not work well when you have a setup with inside speakers (A) and outside patio speakers (B). In other words, you cannot increase the volume of zone B any higher than zone A. This makes going in and out of the house (for example during a barbecue or a party) annoying. Either the outside speakers are too low or the inside speakers are too loud. Maybe the device can do this but the software restricts it, I don't know.
Convenient and easy to use - when it works
Yamaha has done a pretty good job for the most part on this app. Absolutely an improvement over using the remote to navigate and setup the system, except you’ll still need the remote for advanced setups.
Streaming works similarly to many other devices and is wonderfully convenient, when it actually works. I use two MusicCast devices at home, a receiver and one of Yamaha’s small speakers. The connection to either (or both at the same time) has always been weak. There have been few times that I’ve actually connected without issue. Typically it takes several attempts to get my phone to stream to the receiver. Then, when it finally begins playing tunes the music will cut out every few minutes for 5-10 seconds. Very unreliable.
Yamaha’s equipment has always worked PHENOMENALLY for me in the past but, seems like they’re shooting in the dark with their wireless abilities. Certainly hoping they can release an update to fix the connectivity issues.
Totally Satisfied and Content So Far
First, I opted to give this App a five (5) rating because 1) it is free, 2) it is very convenient and accessible, and 3) the thing really works great--simple as that. It downloaded quickly and worked perfectly right out of the gate--not a single set up or pairing problem. Next, just like any other mobile App (or anything else for that matter), nothing is perfect to humans. It just takes a little bit of patience and common sense to become familiar with its layout and navigation. Lastly, it absolutely incorporates just about every basic function necessary for me to communicate with my AV receiver--conveniently located on my IPhone which is almost always near me. What a jewel!!! For those who find fault with it, just uninstall it and move on. It is perfectly OK to walk around with remotes in your hand. Life's choices can get a bit tough some times, right?
