Yamaha intros mini system with wireless audio playback

Yamaha MCR-140 has wireless iPod playback

Yamaha late yesterday introduced two new mini audio systems built for iPhones and iPods, the MCR-140 and MCR-040. The former is unique in that it can play back music from an iPod wirelessly through Yamaha's proprietary yAired standard. The MCR-040 lacks this feature, but both systems otherwise sport a CD player, a front panel USB port, an FM radio and auxiliary audio jack inputs.

Their docks also charge iPods and iPhones and will automatically power the system up when attached. The MCR-140's wireless transmitter allows full control of the source device. It's claimed that yAired has no delays and better quality than audio delivered over the Bluetooth sometimes used for wireless audio systems.

Both systems have two 4-inch, detachable drivers rated at 15W each, though an optional wireless subwoofer kit for the MCR-140 allows for better bass delivery. It and the MCR-040 are available in orange, dark blue, light blue, white, red, dark green, brown, light gray, dark gray and pink for $400 and $280, respectively.
