Yamaha has released a modern take on the traditional clock radio that features rich, full-range sound and advanced connectivity to smartphones and tablets. The new TSX-B72 model supports Bluetooth music streaming with near field communication (NFC) for one-tap pairing with compatible smartphones. A free downloadable app for Apple iOS and Android devices allows users to set and fine-tune alarm times and settings, change radio stations and adjust the sound on the unit.
The TSX-B72 provides sleepers with a relaxing and pleasant way to wake up in the morning. Three minutes before the alarm sounds, Yamaha’s unique IntelliAlarm feature starts to gently play music that gradually increases in volume until the alarm tone sounds.
