Bluetooth iPod Dock UNFUNCTIONAL. CUSTOMER SERVICE NO HELP

Jeremy B, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • 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.

Remote Not Functioning

David Ortiz, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • 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.

This system doesn't speak Android :(

M. Scammon, Amazon
25 December 2012
  • Summary: Yamaha must have added the USB port for show. I've tried quite a few different USB > micro with my Galaxy Nexus, and it errors out with "USB Unknown" or "USB Disconnected". It's not a complicated connection technology, so it's extremely frustrating that Yamaha botched this. Also, It's time to stop ignoring Android OS, it has 39% of the mobile OS market (yes, more than iOS (28%)). Again, it's a shame, because this system has excellent sound for a micro Component system.

just didn't work

darlene anderson, Amazon
22 March 2012
  • Summary: I had great expectations - in spite of some of the reviews that warned me of the problems I experienced. It played none of my downloaded music and about 10% of the previously recorded music I tried to play. It would start and stop, continuously. The remote control also stopped working after I first used it. The operating instructions were useless. Funny that I encountered none of these problems on my bose using the same cds.

Does Not Support Pandora

Chris Smith, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: This stereo does not support Pandora/streaming music signals. It will play Pandora via iTouch/iPhone/iPad but won't acknowledge that it's actually getting a signal (displays that your iPod is paused). After 60 minutes it shuts off due to a dormancy timer (even though it's actually playing music). Yamaha customer support refuses to acknowledge the problem so I have no choice but to send back to Amazon.

  • Pros: sound is good
  • Cons: remote is useless
