The purple Yamaha MCR-B142 Micro Component System supports a variety of audio sources. For wireless audio streaming, the system features Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR technology with support for A2DP and AVRCP protocols. The Bluetooth wireless communication range is 32.8' (10m) without interference. The MCR-B142 also features a 30-pin digital iPod/iPhone dock, a slot-in type CD player and an AM/FM radio. For wired connectivity, there is an auxiliary audio jack for listening to non-Bluetooth enabled portable audio devices including laptops, smartphones, MP3 players and more. There is also a USB port, which you can use to play WAV (PCM format only), MP3 and WMA audio files from a USB memory device or flash drive.

The MCR-142 is equipped with Yamaha's IntelliAlarm technology. IntelliAlarm wakes you up gently by increasing music from your compatible iPod or iPhone gradually over several minutes until the beep goes off. Plus, by installing the Yamaha DTA Controller App on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, you can adjust the settings of the alarm quickly and easily. The MCR-142 stereo sound is produced from dual 4.5" full-range drivers that generate deep bass, as well as clear midrange and high notes. The system features Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer as well, which restores the feeling of expansiveness and dynamic range to compressed audio files.

Flexible Style
With its compact size, solid steel panels and user-friendly controls, the MCR-B142 is designed to fit on furniture or shelves in the home or office. The speakers can either be placed adjacent to the main unit or can be moved apart, enabling more flexible arrangements.
Diverse Wired Connectivity & Docking
The MCR-B142 lets you dock your iPod or iPhone, listen to AM/FM radio and connect your iPad or USB device to the front-panel USB port. It also features a slot-in type CD player and an auxiliary audio input, which allows you to connect a wide range of other sources.
Bluetooth Wireless Music Streaming
The MCR-B142 supports Bluetooth music streaming, so you can enjoy music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or other compatible Bluetooth device. You can put the system wherever you want it and use your smartphone as you usually do to operate the playback functions. The wireless transmission range is 32.8' (10m).
Powerful Sound
Employing powerful 4.5" full-range drivers in large-volume speaker cabinets, the MCR-B142 delivers exceptional acoustic performance from a compact system. You'll hear deep, rich bass, clear midrange and bright high notes. Plus, digital docking ensures high-quality audio connectivity with iPod/iPhone devices.
Compressed Music Enhancer
Designed for MP3 files and other similar formats, Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer restores the dynamic performance of compressed audio files and delivers sound that has a greater feeling of expansiveness.
IntelliAlarm & DTA Controller App
Yamaha's IntelliAlarm wakes you up gently by increasing music volume from your iPod or iPhone gradually over several minutes until the beep goes off. By installing the Yamaha DTA Controller App for your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, you can adjust the settings of the alarm simply and easily. The app requires iOS 4.3 or higher.
CD Text Display
CD Text Display gives you information about the CD currently playing right on the CD player's display. The 3-mode text display shows the CD's title, the artists name and the title of the track.

      Fabulous for its purpose!ti

      By Michael D.

      from Freehold, NJ

      Comments about MCR-B142 Micro Component System (Black):

      If you are looking for outstanding sound quality in a small form factor that will fit anywhere, this is the microsystem to buy.

      It' smaller than a typical bookshelf system; yet it's sound is much larger ... big enough to fill a large living room or family room unless your intent is to rock the house off its foundation.

      First lets talk about the sound quality: for a unit of this small size: OUTSTANDING!
      The unit has clean crisp highs, a broad, but clear mid-range, and a very solid bottom. There is no subwoofer provision, but it is not needed in most situations in which you would be looking for a system this small.
      The base is not a tight accurate audiophile-precise reproduction. You're just not going to get that in a unit with such a small form. What you do get, is a very solid bottom that is not merely a muffled, annoying thud or booming. i am an audiophile and am pleased with what I am getting out of this unit. To get something better, requires much larger speaker sizes and more than double the price.

      As for the other stuff: WOW, very impressive!
      I addition to the CD, the AM/FM is pretty strong and able to pull in some distant stations (35 miles away) with little noise. The flexibility of sourcing from Bluetooth, USB, and analog in (for your MP3 player) is ultra-convenient. I was surprised and delighted with the quality of sound i was hearing when tuning into Pandora Internet radio via WiFi and streaming it via Bluetooth to the B142.

      It has a clock and an alarm for convenience; but truthfully, I have no interest in those features. This is to play my CDs, MP3 and FM.

      Now the cons: nothing that should deter you!
      The equalization controls provide separate, adequate adjustments to the Low, Mid and High frequency bands; but I wish there were equalization presets for the various music styles. Though I suppose one could use the headphone jack as an audio out, I wish there were dedicated analog outs.

      in summary: buy it, you cant go wron

        I bought this micro system for my thirteen year old daughter for her birthday. I was amazed with the clarity and overall loudness of this Yamaha product. Bluetooth works awesome with her iPhone and she loves it. Small form factor big sound.
