Yamaha neoHD enables a user to control all of their sources with a simple graphical user interface and simplified remote control. In addition to the price reduction, the YMC-700 Wi-Fi version is now able to stream music from Pandora, the internet radio service designed to help listeners discover new music as well as enjoy the music they already know. In addition to these new improvements, Yamaha will be releasing a new app for the neoHD YMC-700 that will allow users to control all their connected devices via IR Control from an iPhone or iPad for greater control flexibility and ease of use.
Both neoHD Media Controller models eliminate the need for multi remote controls and act as a one-point control and command of all home and internet components connected to a home A/V system.
Yamaha asserts the hallmark of neoHD is a clean, intuitive menu-driven on-screen display that makes it easier than ever before to navigate and access all audio and video content in the home, regardless of where it is stored.
In addition to new Pandora streaming capabilities, neoHD Wi-Fi can play online content from Rhapsody and internet radio. All models support playback from FM radio and music stored on an external USB drive.
The Yamaha YMC-500 and YMC-700 are currently available.
