  • Excerpt: The Yamaha MCR 140 ($399) has two major things going for it. The first is that outside of performing the functions of your typical micro-audio system, thanks to Yamaha’s proprietary yAired technology, it can play uncompressed audio wirelessly from your iPod/iPhone using a simple dongle that eliminates the syncing hassles associated with other tech like Bluetooth.

  • Excerpt: Since the iPod speaker dock has gotten wildly popular, desktop component audio systems (A.K.A. micro systems or executive desktop audio systems) haven’t gotten a lot of attention. Perhaps their lack of popularity is due to the flooding of iPod speaker docks into the market and the resulting lack of display-shelf room; or maybe it’s because these oft expensive systems have frequently lacked the right combination of features, style and sound quality to appeal to...
  • Pros: Supports multiple external connections, CD Player, USB and FM/AM Tuner on board, Superior wireless iPod sound quality

  • Conclusion: Yamaha’s MCR-140 offers more features and connectivity than most iPod docks and an art-deco appearance that should appeal to a wide range of shoppers. Its sound quality, while not without its limitations, is good enough for most listeners to appreciate. Also, the wireless adapter is a nice thought and provides superior sound quality when compared to many other wireless options, but its bulkiness and limited range make it more of a novelty than a practical feature.

Yamaha MCR-140

What Hi-Fi?

  • Excerpt: If there were a world record for the number of colour-ways for a product, then this Yamaha micro system would definitely have a shot. With no fewer than 10 different hues to choose from, even the harshest of colour critics should be satisfied. An abundance of colourful finishes isn't the only selling point of the MCR-140. The main receiver includes a CD player and DAB/FM radio. The system also features a new version of Yamaha's AirWired wireless streaming technology.
  • Pros: Wireless streaming, DAB radio, vibrant sound, impressive bass weight
  • Cons: Coarse edge to vocals and treble
