Yamaha NX-50 & NX-B55 PC Speakers

Yamaha NX-B55 Bluetooth Computer Speakers

Yamaha just released two nice looking desktop computer speakers, models NX-50 and NX-B55, of which the latter adds Bluetooth wireless capabilities. Both speakers provide a standard stereo mini input for connecting to a PC or Mac plus a second input for connecting a smartphone or tablet. With the NX-B55, the second input is made wirelessly via Bluetooth while the NX-50 offers a second stereo mini input. The speakers also offer a convenient headphone jack and volume control on the front panel.

Both models are finely tuned to create dynamic near-field listening experiences via cabinet designs that prevent internal sound loss and deliver impressive frequency response with computers and mobile devices. Front-facing bass ports push sound straight into the room to deliver surprising low-end response from speakers of this size. The automatic loudness control adjusts bass output to precisely match the volume at all times.

The NX-B55 and NX-50 both have an energy-saving auto standby mode that activates after periods of inactivity. In this mode, the speakers automatically power on again when sound is detected. These attractive desktop speakers have a solid build with sturdy, modern-looking metal grilles on their front panels.

“The NX-B55 and NX-50 not only play nicely with your mobile devices, they also sound and look significantly better than your run-of-the-mill computer speakers,” said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV Division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “They greatly enhance all of your music, games and other content with rich, clear, detailed sound.”
