5 From one of your clients, select Top Menu > Library > Music Archive. You can see the same menu items — Artists,
Albums, Genres and All Songs as found in the MCX-2000 screen. Select one of them and confirm the client display
also shows the artist name, album title, genre or a list of songs from the music CD you just imported on the MCX-2000.
When “All Songs” is selected:
n
If the display on a client is dimmed and shows the current time, press the controller stick. The client will ‘wake up’ and restart the network
connection with the MCX-2000 (page 14).

You can adjust the playback volume using the VOL +/– buttons on the client front panel.
This is the basic procedure for music streaming over the MusicCAST network. If you have two or more clients, you can
play different songs on them. The MCX-2000 also supports multitasking, allowing you to continue importing other music
CDs by repeating steps 1 to 3 above, or select and play a different song on the MCX-2000, even while delivering different
music to each client.

Preface
Thank you and congratulations on your purchase of the Yamaha MCX-2000 Digital Audio Server!
The MCX-2000 is a music server that enhances the concept of MusicCAST, a digital music delivery method over a
personal network.
MusicCAST delivers a new listening style for the digital era. It allows you to record various audio sources, including music
CDs, onto the music server, and enjoy streamed playback on a client device (MCX-A10 or MCX-C15, sold separately)
placed anywhere in your home, using wired and wireless computer networking technologies.
There are many ways to use the MusicCAST network and the MCX-2000 music server.
Use the MCX-2000 to collect and centralize all music sources in your home. Then, simply place a client device in every
room of your house—instead of buying a separate stereo or audio set for each of your family members. This setup lets
each member of the family enjoy their own favorite music—in any room at the same time. Naturally, the music server can
also be set to stream the same music to each client, so that you can walk around your house and have the same music
play no matter where you go.
The MCX-2000 has other great features. It can also stream music or audio programs from the built-in FM radio tuner
anywhere in your home via the MusicCAST network. Locally on the MCX-2000, you can also enjoy Internet radio
programs. You can also use the MCX-2000 to record audio content from old analog tapes. Once recorded, they can be
streamed via the MusicCAST network and burned onto CD-R/RW media for storage purposes, together with songs from
music CDs.
The above are just a few examples to show how you can use the MusicCAST network and the MCX-2000 music server.
You’ll find additional ones throughout this manual, too—so, keep the manual in a safe place and read it thoroughly in
order to get the most out of your new MCX-2000.

Feature Overview
Designed to be a comprehensive, ultimate audio center for your home, the MCX-2000 incorporates a wide variety of
features and functions. Here, we’ll take a look at some of ways you can use these features.
Audio Playback Functions
The MCX-2000 lets you play a wide variety of audio sources, including commercial music CDs, your own original MP3
CDs (CD-ROM), external audio signals, and radio programs from the built-in FM tuner. You can also listen to audio content
stored on your Windows computer if you connect the MCX-2000 to your computer network (LAN). Since the MCX-2000
can access the Internet through your computer network, you can even enjoy music from your favorite Internet radio
stations. When you play these audio sources on the main MCX-2000 itself, connect a speaker system (power amplifier
and speakers, or powered speakers) to the unit.

Audio Recording Functions
The MCX-2000 incorporates a large-capacity 160GB hard disk drive, allowing up to 200 hours of digital recording in linear
PCM format (16-bit/44.1kHz) or up to 2,000 hours in MP3 format (160kbps bit rate). Recordable audio sources include
commercial music CDs, external audio signals, and radio programs from the built-in FM tuner.

Music Archiving Functions
When recording audio sources, you can add information to each song—such as the song title, artist name, album name
and genre—then store it to the music archive in the MCX-2000 hard drive. This information can then be used to find
specific songs you want to play. Because the MCX-2000 incorporates a special song database system (based on
Gracenote CDDB® ), this information will be set automatically if your songs are from popular music CDs. Other useful
functions include Playlist and Bookmark, letting you create custom song lists appropriate to specific occasions (such as
parties, morning ‘wake-up’ music, etc.) and allowing you to mark your favorite tunes for quick access.

Music Streaming Functions
Once songs are archived (recorded) on the MCX-2000 hard drive, you can stream them to up to 15 clients via the
MusicCAST network. The MCX-2000 can deliver the same music to each client simultaneously (broadcast). It can also
deliver different songs to different clients at the same time, at the request of each client. In addition, the MCX-2000
supports remote control of clients via the MusicCAST network, allowing you to operate them without having to go to each
unit individually.

• The MCX-2000 is designed to connect to a TV monitor for easy operation. Though you can still operate the unit while viewing its front
panel display, a large TV display offers more operation information at a time.
• The MCX-2000 accepts a generic PS/2 keyboard. This enables faster, more convenient operation than the remote control or front-panel
buttons, especially when you edit song information or other text data.
• The MCX-2000 is designed to become active immediately after the power cable is connected to the AC power source. Make sure to
connect to the AC power source only in the last step after all other devices are connected.
Connecting to the AC Power
When relevant external devices are all connected, turn on these devices first, and then connect the MCX-2000 power
cable to the AC power source.

The front panel STANDBY/ON button indicator will light up in green. On the TV monitor, switch the video input source to
the MCX-2000 video output (VIDEO or S-VIDEO). If the following screen is shown on the TV display, connection to the TV
monitor has been successful.

You can call up any necessary operation by selecting a menu item from the Top Menu. In addition, when you turn on the
MCX-2000 for the first time after purchase, or after the system reset operation (page 103), the Easy Setup screen
(page 27) will appear instead of the Top Menu screen.

If the indicator light of the STANDBY/ON button turns amber or red, press the button to continue working on the MCX-2000. The unit is designed
to automatically go into an energy saving mode if no operations have been performed for a while. Read the following column for more information.
Operation Modes on the MCX-2000
The MCX-2000 has no switch to completely turn the unit off. When you connect the MCX-2000 to the AC power source,
the front panel STANDBY/ON button indicator lights up in green and the MCX-2000 enters active mode. In this mode, you
can record or play an audio source while viewing the built-in display or the TV monitor.

STANDBY/ON button: green
When you press the STANDBY/ON button on the remote control or the unit’s front panel, the front panel STANDBY/ON
button indicator light turns amber, and then the MCX-2000 enters sleep mode. In this mode, the MCX-2000 stops
showing a screen on the TV monitor and built-in display, waiting for a client request or your remote control operation.

MCX-2000 Owner’s Manual
When you press the power switch on a client, it immediately establishes a network connection with the MCX-2000 and
enters active mode. (The corresponding CLIENT STATUS indicator lights up on the MCX-2000.) The client shows Top
Menu in the backlit display, and gets ready to play a streamed song from the MCX-2000.
As mentioned above, even in sleep mode, the MCX-2000 can still respond to a request from any registered client. This is
because the MCX-2000 maintains network connections with clients. As long as network connections are maintained, the
MCX-2000 can continue streaming music to clients. In fact, clients can continue playing a streamed song if the
MCX-2000 later enters sleep mode.

If you hold down the STANDBY/ON button for more than 3 seconds when the MCX-2000 is in active or sleep mode, the
indicator light turns red and the MCX-2000 enters standby mode, where the unit consumes less power. In standby mode,
network activities between the MCX-2000 and clients stop. (All CLIENT STATUS indicators go off on the MCX-2000.) In
this process, all active clients also enter sleep mode (Remote Sleep). They stop playing a streamed song (because of no
network connection with the MCX-2000), and show the current time in the display without backlight. In slee
