Summary: All we needed was a mini shelf stereo. I looked at everything out there and the Yamaha MCR-140 was the best designed both in form and function. And one of the most expensive in this class. We purchased this unit in August of 2012. It just goes downhill from there. You need a PC to format your flash drive to use the USB connection. So, all the music I have in my Mac itunes is useless. We were left with a radio and CD for our music.

Summary: I had enjoyed this stereo since buying it at the end of July 2012. However, yesterday instead of hearing my music, there was silence. The sullen glow of the words "iPod Unlinked" was all I could possibly enjoy. Yes, I could listen to the radio, yes, I could listen to the CD, but no, I could not listen to my iPod. I did some unsuccessful trouble shooting with the wireless transmitter. When I purchased this system I had no idea it could be so unreliable.
Summary: First let me say that for the three months that this unit was functioning we were very happy with it. I echo the positive reviews about the sound, functionality and the look of the system. However, we are now having the power problems described by other reviewers. The unit shuts down on its own at various intervals. Sometimes it will do it seconds after turning it on. Other times it will shut off after 10 to 30 minutes.
