About Yamaha MCR-B043D
Embrace the spirit of Yamaha's motorcycle team with audio inspired by the iconic design and colour of their road bikes. From the top panel recalling an engine fan to the volume knob echoing the design of a radiator cap, the inspiration behind Yamaha Motorcycles shines through on the MCR-B043D. The yellow, orange and dark grey finishes form the distinctive stripe that evokes the speed of a motorcycle. Yamaha Motor's vision is fully realised by this sleek and stylish micro stereo system.
An Array Of Music Sources: Enjoy wireless playback from your smartphone, tablet or PC effortlessly with Bluetooth® technology. In addition to the CD player, USB and Digital DAB+/FM radio, it has an AUX-in terminal for connecting a PC or portable device, giving you music enjoyment from a variety of sources in one unit. An on-board USB port allows you to charge your smartphone or tablet too!
Satisfyingly Rich Sound: The MCR-B043D includes Yamaha's Music Enhancer that restores what is lost when audio data is compressed (as in MP3s for example) to deliver sound that is more dynamic and has a greater feeling of expansiveness. What's more, the speakers feature an 11 cm drive unit that uses a large-diameter magnet to deliver rich bass, clear mids and sparkling highs. The large-volume cabinet acts like a bass drum – further helping to produce a deep and robust bass.
- DAB+ and FM tuner with 30-station preset tuning
- Headphone jack for private listening
- Sleep timer lets you fall asleep to music
- Dimmer for adjusting display brightness
- Tone control for optimal sound quality
Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a technology for wireless communication between devices within an area of about 10 metres (about 33 ft) employing the 2.4 GHz frequency band, a band which can be used without a license.
USB: This unit is equipped with a USB port that allows you to enjoy WAV (PCM format only), MP3 and WMA audio files from a USB memory device (USB flash drive).
Digital Radio (DAB+): DAB+ digital radio provides a number of benefits over other radio formats including CD sound quality and communication of additional information such as the radio station, artist and song name. It also provides access to a huge range of new digital radio stations so you'll never get bored of the same old music again.
Compressed Music Enhancer: Yamaha employs sophisticated digital signal processing with exclusive algorithms to enable playback that improves the performance of compressed music formats, including MP3 and WMA. With the Compressed Music Enhancer, highs and especially lows are richer and smoother, bringing music back to life to be as close to the original as possible.
First, this system is from Yamaha who have a fantastic reputation for outstanding quality on everything they make - motorbikes and audio gear! When we were first introduced to the Yamaha MCR-043d micro system, we were a bit skeptical because of the total output of just 30 Watts. Wow were we shocked! This compact beast delivers big-time sound and we were beyond impressed. The sound is clear and crisp and the brain has difficulty in comprehending that it can can produce such amazing sound. The unit itself is very simple looking, easy to unpack and connect and fits nicely on a shelf. The remote is basic, but very well laid out and easy to use. Obviously it is loaded with features and the speakers can be separated away from the centre unit making for better stereo separation.
