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.

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.
