Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS SYSTEM!! I purchased a Yamaha MCR-040R Micro Component System about a year ago. When I got it (in only 2 days, Hooray Amazon!) it played for about an hour and froze up. Nothing. So I sent it back to be replaced and in only 2 days I had my second system. I played it for about a week and it froze up, just like the first one. So I sent IT back to be replaced again, and in only 2 days, I had my third system. This one worked for about a year with no problem.
Summary: NOT suited to desktop! It's Way too deep! Really too bad too... they just need to ditch the CD player in it, and put in a SD card slot instead.. Make it so it actually fits on a desktop! Geesh! a real clunker.
Summary: This was a piece of junk. I mean the speaker has a great sound for my room,however, I can't even use the darn thing unless I use the remote. I can't use the CD player which is the main reason I bought it! None of the buttons on the actual device work i can only use the ipod and radio only using the remote. And then they charged An arm and a leg for this! Highly disappointed. I am really upset and I don't have time and extra money to ship it back and forth. Never again.
Summary: I purchased this system for my daughter who listens to her music via cds and iPod. Bought it as a Christmas gift in 2012 and now the docking station does not work. You have to tilt the iPod (nano) forward with your hand to get the system to recognize that it is connected. It didn't always work this way. Too bad, it was a really nice looking system and the sound was great.
Bluetooth iPod Dock UNFUNCTIONAL. CUSTOMER SERVICE NO HELP

Summary: I really wanted to love this product. It appeals to me visually, size-wise and performance wise. Unfortunately the iPod dock never worked at all. I had called the Yamaha service center and was sent in a black hole of Customer Support emails, reference numbers, serial numbers and various codes all to send me to a NYC based local service center that was out of business.
Summary: Unfortunately the remote stopped working on the second day. You can not change stations or tweak settings without it. Bad design decision. I am returning the unit for a full refund. It is a bad design decision to put major functionality solely on the remote. Once the remote is lost or damaged the unit is basically functionless. Unless you listen to only a single radio station.
Summary: Purchased this for my son for Christmas. Excellent sound and he loved it. The first time he played it for an hour it stopped working. Turned it off and back on. No sound. Tried everything. No sound. It says it is playing. No sound. Sending it back and the replacement will take 3 weeks to arrive. Very disappointing for my son.
