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.
Pros: Supports multiple external connections, CD Player, USB and FM/AM Tuner on board, Superior wireless iPod sound quality
Cons: Bulky wireless iPod transmitter, Limited wireless range

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
