Yamaha Design “Synapses” MusicCast 20 / 50
Wireless streaming speakers compatible with MusicCast®.
We opted for a simple, elliptical cylindrical design that elicits the feel that the sound is diffused in all directions, and that blends in with the many indoor locations in which users will place the speakers.
The upper edge creates a gentle feel, and is functional with touch panel operation. The plaster-like matte texture is visually appealing, and ensures the user that their fingers will stay where they intend for them to land.
The gently curved housing absorbs light to create beautiful shading. The mirrored finish of the tabletop unit reflects the surroundings much like a pond enclosed by a gently rising edge, and creates a new type of scenery for living spaces.
Even when several speakers are used to create a stereo effect, they do not boastfully announce their presence; rather, they create a rhythm in combination with flower vases, fruit bowls and other elements of interior design to achieve harmony within living spaces.
