Product information

Compact, fun and easy-to-use - the Yamaha MCR-B142 is a dream-come-true for anyone looking for a more portable micro system. Capable of easy Bluetooth streaming, there’s also a world of listening on offer from DAB and FM to iPod docking. It even plays CDs. More than just a dock, it’ll set all of your music free.

Key benefits:

  • 30 Watts of quality audio output will fill just about any room with sound. Loaded with a four-inch full range woofer cone, bass notes will thump and high notes soar for more vibrant music and radio listening.

  • Bluetooth streaming sets you free from wires and gives you the freedom to roam, you can even get friends in on the action with their smartphones and computers so there’s always fresh music at gatherings. The handy CD player even lets you play straight from your disks (including MP3 and WMA formats), dodging the hassle of ripping to your computer.

  • Ready to go with DAB and FM tuners, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your old favourite stations, while opening up a new world of digital listening. Tune stations in by name and enjoy crystal-clear listening like never before. Thanks to 30 Fm and 30 DAB presets you can skip through your favourite stations in moments.

  • The MCR’s USB port allows you to enjoy MP3 and WMA audio files directly from a USB hard drive or memory stick. There’s also a 3.5mm mini jack for standard audio connections.

  • IntelliAlarm is a special type of alarm that gives you a wakeup call with music. Three minutes before the beep goes off, the music from your iPod or iPhone will first flow lightly and then gradually increase, to wake you gently. The iPhone, iPod, iPad specialised DTA Controller app lets you set the alarm time differently for each day of the week, as well as make detailed IntelliAlarm settings and transmit them wirelessly.

  • Yamaha's Music Enhancer restores detail lost when audio data is compressed (as in an MP3 player) to deliver sound that is more dynamic and has a greater feeling of expansiveness.

Q & As

Yamaha MCR-B142 Wireless DAB/FM/CD Micro System/iPod Dock 4.6 5 5 5
Sound investment Well worth waiting for. We love the sound quality - it is so pleasant, clear and mellow but handles a wide range with ease. With only a small space available, we wanted something compact to replace a twenty year old stereo without compromising quality. It is excellent in the essentials; the DAB radio picks up a wide range of stations, Bluetooth connection to a tablet is seamless, the television connects to the auxiliary input and we have a wide choice of music through a USB stick. A minor gripe is programming the alarm to vary according to the day of the week depends on a DTA app which is only on Apple & Android devices not Windows. This cannot be done from the unit software alone. 03 March 2014
Disappointed I bought this because of the reviews and I believed Yamaha was a very good make. I wanted white, and was pleased it was £100 cheaper. If I had paid all that extra for colour I would be devastated. The units feel cheap. The connecting wires have a small cut to pull off the plastic coating in order to insert the bare copper internal core into very small apertures to connect the speakers. It wasn't easy and I may not have done it properly which may account for the poor quality sound. I expected connector inserts as found on most DVD systems these days, especially as this is twice the price of a basic audio system. Haven't had the heart to try to set up the DAB radio. Big mistake. May yet take it back. 07 December 2013
Love it! Arrived on time though no phone call so was a pleasant surprise as i was in, anyway...i love this Micro System, good low 2 high sound quality with a 3 band equalizer on remote control, the rest of the reviews so far say it all though i must add it is deeper in size than it looks, speaker is close to a small shoe box in size but well made, i chose an Orange one! Looks fantastic! Sounds great and well priced!!! 31 August 2013
Almost perfect product (so far) This is obviously a well constructed product. The metal casing and speaker cabinets, give a very satisfactory sound. I have only had the system for a couple of days, so haven't tried every feature, but the quality through Bluetooth and CD has been very good indeed. If anything it is smaller than it looks in the pictures, so worth checking the dimensions if you have a place in mind for a system to go. To be perfect, I would have liked a couple of Line/Phono inputs, but I have a USB turntable that has a USB out, so that will just about do. It also has a 3.5 input as well. Final impression is that Yamaha have concentrated on music quality first then style and features, and it is all the better for it. 11 June 2013
Excellent sound I am really pleased with this micro system, as the sound isn't micro at all. It produces excellent sound for such a small system. It fits into a small space but has everything I need. I haven't tried the ipod dock yet. Delivery was unfortunately 4 weeks after I ordered it, so I missed having it for Christmas/new year. 20 January 2013
