Yamaha takes on fierce multi-room audio market

Since its founding in 2002, Sonos has dominated the wireless multi-room audio market. In 2013, Bose introduced the SoundTouch wireless system; a year later LG and Samsung decided to grab their own piece of the market, and earlier this year, Philips pioneered the Spotify Connect system. Yamaha has cemented its plans to shake up the multi-room speaker category with its latest MusicCast concept, which allows users to enjoy content from music streaming services, in addition to, TV programs, CDs and even vinyl records.
