The MCR-B142 supports Bluetooth music streaming, allowing you to enjoy music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or other compatible Bluetooth device. Put your system wherever you want it, and use your smartphone as you usually do to operate the playback functions.
Stunning Sound From a Compact System
Employing powerful 4-1/2” drivers in large-volume speaker cabinets, the MCR-B142 delivers exceptional acoustic performance from a compact system, with deep, robust bass and clear mids and highs. Digital docking ensures high-quality audio connectivity with iPod and iPhone devices, and Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer restores the performance of compressed audio files (e.g. MP3 files) to deliver sound that is more dynamic and has a greater feeling of expansiveness.
DTA Controller App for Extra Convenience
Yamaha’s IntelliAlarm™ wakes you up gently by increasing music from your iPod or iPhone gradually over several minutes until the beep goes off. By installing the Yamaha DTA Controller App for your iPhone / iPod touch / iPad and Android™ devices you can adjust the settings of the alarm simply and easily. You can also set the alarm time differently for each day of the week.
The app will be periodically updated for additional functionality.

Ease into your day with a new approach to waking up. Yamaha's IntelliAlarm wakes you gently with the audio source of your choosing, first filtering out uncomfortable high frequencies, then gradually restoring the full audio spectrum before beeping to ensure you are awake.
iPod Digital Connection
iPod digital connection means that the digital signal from the iPod is transmitted directly to the system, minimising noise interference and allowing use of the DAC not in the iPod, but in the system. This results in more precise sound reproduction.

Comments about Yamaha mcr-b142_u:
I had been looking at this radio, or it's predecessor to be precise, for some time. I found that it was too deep for my kitchen counter that I wanted to use as it's home so though I came close, I never bought it.
So when this updated version appeared with shallower depth and bluetooth, I was intrigued. There is no doubting the versatility of this unit with CD, radio, iPod and Bluetooth capabilities. Matching the colour to my kitchen really makes a nice difference - it looks as if it belongs and there are no other radios that come in so many colours.
The sound quality is good, not exceptional but pleasing for sure. I am an audio professional and don't rely on this as a main source of music, but it's a nice piece to own.
It's solidly made and my advice is to get a colour that compliments your decor. It's not often you are given the choice so it's wise to take advantage of this feature when you are.
