Enjoy a diversity of sources, including iPod, iPhone and iPad, from one unit.
By docking the unit with an iPod or iPhone, you can enjoy your favourite tunes with high audio quality, thanks to the digital connection. And by using the USB port, you can play music files from an iPad or USB device. In addition to the CD player and radio (DAB, DAB+ and FM), it has an AUX-In terminal for connecting a PC or DAP, giving you music enjoyment from a variety of sources in one unit.
IntelliAlarm wakes you gently with music.
IntelliAlarm is a special type of alarm that gives you a wakeup call with music. Three minutes before the beep goes off, the music from your iPod or iPhone will first flow lightly and then gradually increase, to wake you gently. You can make more detailed settings with the DTA Controller app.
With the special DTA Controller app, a variety of settings are now simple and easy.
By installing the special app for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, you can set the alarm and enjoy more convenient operation. For example, you can make detailed settings such as a different alarm time for each day, and also vary the IntelliAlarm volume and frequency. The settings are easy to make, just connect your iPhone/iPod/iPad and press the Sync button.
*System requirements; iOS4.3 or higher
Enjoy your favorite music with rich sound quality to your heart’s content.
The MCR-042 includes Yamaha's Music Enhancer that restores what is lost when audio data is compressed (as in an MP3 player) to deliver sound that is more dynamic and has a greater feeling of expansiveness. The speakers feature a new 11cm (4-1/2") drive unit that employs a large-diameter magnet for enjoying music with rich bass tones and clear mid and high ranges. Bass sound is deep and robust, thanks to a large-volume cabinet that acts like a bass drum.
CD Text Display
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).
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.
Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad
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.
