Great sound in a simple package

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • Summary: I'm pretty demanding about the sound I place in my home and studio, yet I don't care for big splashy units, useless gizmos, or a big price. This unit gave me exactly what I wanted. It doesn't take up much room yet it produces rich, vibrant, full-range sound that puts other purveyors like Bose to shame. It takes just minutes to set up and the remote is easy to use and understand. I can listen to the radio, CDs or an iPod or MP3 player--What else do I need?

Good little unit!

  • Summary: Replaced an old boombox in the bedroom. This little guy delivers solid sound quality, and takes up less room. Only thing missing is an aux. in for MP3 player other than I-Pod. The USB port is adequate for my needs though. Just requires additional step to move music to a flash drive. Won't replace your full sized stereo, but perfect for small more intimate venue! Definitely would recomend.

Not Functional Design

T. Liu "1st time GPS", Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: Areas that Need Improvement: There's no auxiliary input. You'll need the control to switch tracks/tune, because the buttons are not on the system. The FM radio isn't that great. The USB thing is kind of useless. Can't use ipad on it. Pros: Looks solid. Good sound.

Great little system!

John W. Humphrey, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: It was quick and easy to set up, and with a bit of thought (plus the help of the directions), entering the desired settings were no problem. It's easy to use ... my only (slightly) negative comment would be that the small remote is a bit hard for older eyes to read.

Way better sound than we expected

Alan Savage, Amazon
8 April 2010
  • Summary: Okay we replaced a '90's' boom box but this unit is exactly what we wanted and more..easy to set up and 'for us' a great sound. We added the matching Yamaha YST-SW216BL Advanced YST II Front-Firing Active Subwoofer and prefer listening to radio and music on this unit than our main system.

Great sounding stereo

Megan L. Slonac, Amazon

  • Summary: This micro system is great. The sound is amazing considering the size of the speakers and the price was great too. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a small scale stereo that will play CD's, IPOD's, FM/AM and still have an MP3 hookup also.

Yamaha proves it's not perfect..

Dallas Electronics Fan, Amazon
9 August 2009
  • Summary: I've been a big fan of Yamaha receivers for many years. If you buy towards the top of the range, you won't be disappointed. I still own a DSP-A3090, an R100, and an MCR-E300GLC mini-system. All have performed heroically over the years with virtually no problems. When I saw the MCR-230BL advertised, the USB and iPod inputs were the draw.
