Product Specifications

The MCR-230 has been designed for anyone who wants to enjoy music... really enjoy music... from a personal-sized, easy to use system. The size is compact, the styling is simple and straightforward. All of the special design features are on the inside, where they contribute to pure, high quality sound. The CD player is a high performance type with CD text display, and you also get the convenience of docking an iPod and inserting a USB player right into the top of the unit. The speakers are extremely high quality - you won't believe how good they sound and how much bass they put out. In short, the MCR-230 goes far beyond your expectations for a micro component system.
