Yamaha MCR-140 and MCR-040 Wireless iPod Speaker Systems

605876.jpg

Micro Component Systems Available in 10 Colors; MCR-140 With Proprietary yAired Technology for Uncompressed Audio Distribution

Yamaha Electronics Corporation introduced the “Made for iPod” MCR- 140 and MCR-040 micro-component music systems. The innovative MCR-140 system features wireless iPod playback and optional wireless subwoofer compatibility via the company’s proprietary yAired technology, as well as a CD player, front panel USB port, FM radio and mini jack inputs for portable audio devices. The MCR-040 is identical, minus the yAired features. Both models are currently available in ten colors.

With perfectly matched amp and speakers for high efficiency, the MCR-140 and MCR-040 deliver sound that is bigger and richer than would typically be expected from systems of this size (4 3/4″ W x 4 5/8″ H x 11 1/4″ D). Advanced Yamaha Active Servo Technology (YST) delivers powerful, accurate bass response that seems to come from much larger speakers. Yamaha’s exclusive Vibration Control Cabinet Structure Technology (VCCS) practically eliminates distortion-causing speaker cabinet vibration.

Both models have iPod docks built into their top panels, allowing users to take out the ear buds and share their favorite music with friends and automatically recharge the portable devices. The MCR-140 features a wireless transmitter for iPods that enables users to listen to audio remotely while maintaining direct control of the music and video content they want to access. Uncompressed audio is delivered for high fidelity playback through the system’s speakers which can be placed anywhere in the room. The MCR-140 and MCR-040 also automatically power on when a connected iPod starts playback.

In addition to seamless wireless convenience, yAired technology offers key advantages over Bluetooth, including superior sound quality via uncompressed linear PCM audio transmission and no audio delay issues when watching video. The MCR- 140’s yAired capabilities enable the system to be paired with an optional wireless subwoofer kit (Yamaha SWK-W10) for even more robust bass response.

The high sound quality of the MCR-140 and MCR-040 is delivered by a Yamaha digital amplifier with extremely low noise distortion. Two highly responsive 4-inch speakers provide dynamic bass response for powerful, clean sound from any music library.
