Looks and sounds great! A really great unit

John Fedevich "drummer freak", Amazon
13 April 2015
  • Summary: Looks and sounds great! A really great unit! My only issue is that it has no inputs (rca) on the rear of the unit. It does have a usb input on the front, but for some reason my Ion Profile LP archiving turntable is not working through it. I believe the turntable doesn't produce enough output.

Yamaha MCR-B142 - can't charge phone while connected via Bluetooth + doesn't work with Android phones via app or via USB

Ramin A., Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: Contrary to the website description, the Android app does not work (it either crashes or can't find the stereo). The USB source doesn't recognize Android phone (Samsung S5) but interesting design choice requires you to select the USB source before device connected to USB can be charged.

nice compact stereo

Sally Erickson, Amazon
1 March 2015
  • Summary: This little stereo fits great on my bookshelves and has pretty good sound. I just wish it didn't have the wimpy little wire antennae for the radio. My cats love to destroy these. It works well for playing songs from my I-Pod.

The sound on this system is very nice for such a small device

anon, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: The sound on this system is very nice for such a small device. The speakers are both detached. I was unsure about this with the promotional images here and at Yamaha's site. I do not have an Ipod or an Iphone so the cover for the top dock is a welcome addition to keep dust and moisture from the...
