Yamaha MCR-332 and MCR-232 Mini Audio Systems with iPod Dock


Yamaha introduced the MCR-332 and MCR-232 PianoCraft micro component systems that deliver full-size component quality stereo sound from just about any source, including Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad portable music players, USB devices, as well as from their built-in CD players and AM/FM tuners.

The centerpiece of both systems is the CRX-332 CD/receiver featuring an alluring aluminum hairline design and a Yamaha-developed digital amp providing smooth, unforced output to 2-way bass reflex speakers. A built-in, top-panel iPod/iPhone dock offers more precise sound reproduction from Apple mobile devices via a fully digital connection that takes advantage of the CRX-332's superior DAC during playback. In addition, a USB port provides compatibility with MP3 players and flash drives, while a subwoofer port and AUX-in terminals enable easy system expansion with additional components. The result is stunning sound from a compact, versatile and stylish package.

The MCR-332 and MCR-232 systems both provide remarkably proficient 2-way bass reflex speakers with deep cabinets supported by three legs. This design prevents external vibrations from affecting sound reproduction and delivers resonant bass and rich midrange with exceptionally good imaging.

Conceived from its musical instrument manufacturing expertise, Yamaha integrates its proprietary Vibration Control Cabinet Structure (VCCS) technology that incorporates strategically placed pieces of composite material within each speaker to further reduce vibration-related distortion. A luxurious, piano-like finish provides a sophisticated look that is perfect in any setting–from the office or living room, to the bedroom or yacht.

Both systems offer large-size, screw type speaker terminals that ensure a reliable high quality connection. The MCR-332 speakers also offer banana clip connections, an unusual high-end feature for micro component systems, for additional connection reliability over time. The MCR-332 and MCR-232 systems' speakers have elegantly designed removable speaker grills.

Price and Availability
Each system is available now and comes with an updated remote control featuring enhanced design and functionality. The CRX-332 also will be sold separately at select retailers as part of alternate systems with other components.
