Great sound but connectivity is out of date

 

Great sound but this product was manufactured in 2012. Connectivity has changed drastically since then. I cant justify the price, Its going back

Sound quality is great, even rivals Bose! Its simple and easy to use, and the sound is unreal for such a compact unit. Speakers are wired but can still be placed apart from the main unit. Comes with great FM antennae got cristal clear reception

Non Lightning connection on top. Older apple charge style. Uses old 2.1 version of Bluetooth, that version isn't stable with any of todays products. I wasn't able to keep a connection with an iPhone 6 or a Samsung S3. Also, the USB port on the unit...

PERFECT!

 

Happy with my component system. I got it in black. The sound is great, fills up my whole apartment. Love that I can play CDs or listen to FM or AM. I have not one thing negative to report as yet. Have had the system 2 weeks.

Fantastic Sound, Great Looks, Easy2Use

 

I purchased Yamaha's MCR-B142 system for my wife. Setup was a snap. The sound is very full (and is equipped with an equilizer for low, mid, and high that we did not need to touch). Wife-e-poo loves the easy to use controls (on unit and on the remote)....

Excellent

 

The radio reception and speaker performance are exceptional . The only caveat is that it iPods after the 4th generation will not be recognized in the dock
