We are super excited to be working with Yamaha over the coming months. We will be reviewing and sharing some fantastic products with you. Starting with the awesome ISX-80 Frame speaker.
Whether wall-mounted or placed on a shelf, FRAME provides an artful touch to interiors while also encompassing music. It has never been easier to fill your home with music. Welcome to MusicCast. Yamaha’s revolutionary new multi-room sound system.
We had the opportunity to review the FRAME ISX-80 and it was such fun.
Musical education is very important in both our families. Whether Oliver is rocking out to The Offspring ring tone every time his Dad calls or Olivia is imitating the Sound Of Music’s ‘Lonely Goatherd’; we are raising kids who love their tunes.
Lisa and her husband spent hours listening to music while they were setting the system up. Having the volume as loud as they could at night with 3 kids asleep, they spent the night relaxing with music from when they first met. It had already had a profound affect on their life that would otherwise have been spent watching TV and scrolling social media on their phones instead.
FRAME is a great size. Sitting at around 30cm by 30cm it is not hard to find a spot for it to sit or be mounted. It is perfect for renters who can’t wall mount and great for those who have more freedom with their homes.
Moving it around the house, room to room with such ease is a definite selling point for us. We used it upstairs and downstairs. The kitchen, the living areas and the teenagers bedroom. You know what is even cooler? Not only can you move the speaker around effortlessly, you’re able to connect it to other Bluetooth speakers and move SOUND from room to room. FRAME can send its music to other Bluetooth speakers (not to mention connect to other MusicCast speakers via WiFi).
It definitely isn’t the hardest thing to set up but reading the instructions is necessary to download apps and connect to wireless networks. The MusicCast app is free and easy to use. I stream all our music through Spotify and there was absolutely no issues or hold ups when setting up.
For a small unit, it packs a huge punch. The volume goes well above 50 but it really doesn’t need to. It has a super cute teeny tiny remote that I am 600% sure I would lose within the first month. The sound quality is great, there are no tinny sounds and it has a nice bass feel which is super important for when Olivia and I decide to do some booty shakes on RnB Fridays.
The unit retails for $699.00 which is considerable but items like sound systems are definitely an investment. We love the sleek design, the ability to move it around the house and the wireless capabilities. This is a speaker that you will be able to use for years.
