The Yamaha MCR-N560BL micro component system is powered by a 64W digital amplifier. The main unit has dual speaker connections and a subwoofer output. Analog composite and 3.5 mm inputs are also onboard for connecting legacy audio sources. The built-in digital FM tuner allows you to enjoy free over-the-air FM radio, and an antenna is included. This micro component system also comes with a remote control for easy operation.


Select Your Favorite Sources from Your Home Network
The MCR-N560BL micro component system lets you enjoy conventional CD, radio and USB audio sources, but also includes network functions to expand your musical choices. You can link to a home network to listen to music from your PC or NAS, stream music from online sources, and enjoy thousands of radio stations via Internet radio. You can also stream your own stored music from your smartphone or tablet.
FLAC/WAV 192 kHz/24-bit Signal Compatibility
Providing compatibility with FLAC/WAV 192 kHz/24bit audio signals, the MCR-N560BL lets you play back content downloaded in FLAC or WAV formats from music sites.
AirPlay Allows Music Streaming from Mac, PC, iPod, iPhone and iPad

The audio stays in the digital domain and is engineered to deliver pure, pristine, and dynamic sound for all your entertainment sources.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Compatible

Sound Quality

High Efficiency Digital Amp with High Quality Parts
In order to play network sound sources with high sound quality, the MCR-N560BL main unit is equipped with a highly efficient digital amplifier that ensures high sound clarity with low distortion. The amplifier power source and output filter utilize a high capacity capacitor and a high performance filter, selected based on extensive listening tests.
High Sound Quality Circuit Design
The MCR-N560BL main unit uses separate circuit boards for CD/DAC sources and for network audio. Separating the power source and ground of the signal processor and amplifier minimizes mutual interference of audio signals. The digital audio source connects to the amplifier without digital-to-analog conversion, achieving clear and wide range sound quality with minimal signal loss.
Vibration Control Cabinet Structure Technology
To prevent unwanted cabinet vibration, Yamaha developed an internal structure called Vibration Control Cabinet Structure that uses strategically placed pieces of a composite material for high vibration isolation performance. In addition, three legs provide additional shock absorption, which is designed to enhance sound quality.
2-way System with High Quality White Cone Woofer
The speaker units employ a 4.75" (12 cm) white cone woofer and a 1.25" (3 cm) soft dome tweeter. The woofer is an advanced polymer-injected mica diaphragm unit created by downsizing and performing specialized tuning of a woofer used in Yamaha high-end Soavo speakers.


High Grade Texture
The MCR-N560BL main unit combines a hairline-finish aluminum front panel and piano black side panels and features diamond shaped front corners. The aluminum volume knob has a high-grade texture.
Piano Black Speaker Cabinets
Matched to the main unit, the piano black speakers have a deep luster and high texture wood-grain finish.

    Yamaha MCR-N560 reviews

    MCR-N560BL Micro Component System (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Unit! After moving we just didn't have the same space for our standard receiver, cd changer and larger speakers. I did a LOT of research and decided to go with this unit based on all the reviews. I am very happy with my selection. For such a small footprint this thing is awesome. I would have given it a 5-star rating if the Bluetooth was integrated as opposed to having to buy an add-on and not having the basic (radio tuning and treble/bass) controls on the face of the receiver. However, I knew these things going in but I'm old school and don't like using a remote (or fear of losing it) to make adjustments to these basic functions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plugged the Ethernet cable and everything worked perfectly I knew that it does not come with its own WiFi, so the first thing I did was plug the network cable in. Seconds later my iPhone and MacBook Pro saw it as an AirPlay device using my WiFi router. I could play my music from any source, over WiFi, directly in the N560. No configuration, no setup, I didn't even need to open the manual. Great sound, I am also using it as a headphone amplifier for my HD650. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value for money A high quality product with excellent sound. The bass needs to be augmented with a sub-woofer (for which the unit provides an outlet) but I knew this would be the case for bookshelf speakers. As usual, excellent service from B&H. I will be ordering the sub-woofer from them next.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system! Sounds great, looks good, and it was an easy setup. It's compact, but the sound has real depth. It can thump decent bass with rap, and put out crisp highs with opera. Well-pleased with this no nonsense, excellent unit. Plenty of connectivity options I haven't even explored yet. CD player and radio are perfect and everything is really beyond expectations for a sweet small unit that sounds really, really good.
