Less expensive than similar Bose units (but the sound is as good)..
C. E. Hughes
Sound is great and you can move the speakers further apart if you want more of a stereo effect and music in other rooms for parties, etc.
Rochelle W.
I especially like that i was able to set up my Iphone with it through it via Bluetooth.

Color Name: Green
I've only had this for a day, so I will try to update the review in a month or so -- but since there are no reviews of the Yamaha MCR-B142 on Amazon yet, I thought that I should at least give my initial impression.

I stepped up to the Yamaha from iSymphony Bluetooth Stereo System by way of the Pioneer X-EM21 Micro HiFi CD/FM Stereo System with iPod-Dock USB-in Remote. The iSymphony is a nice cheap little bluetooth stereo that is fine for talk, but falls short on music. The Pioneer disappointed me in its USB drive handling. All my other stereos saw 89 albums on my stick, but the Pioneer would only see 60. Anyhow, the Yamaha is certainly in a different price and quality class from the others, but, as I came to realize how much I lean on my kitchen stereo for music, I decided it was time to shell out for a good unit.

I can't offer any of the quantitative analysis that I'm sure engineering-oriented reviewers will soon furnish. I can only offer my first impressions on what I like and I don't like.

The first thing I noticed about the Yamaha is just how heavy -- substantial -- the unit is. It's no bigger than my previous stereos, but much more solid. I guess I'm used to the molded plastic that is standard fare for small stereo speakers at this point. This stereo is encased in steel, I believe. It is solid as a rock. Just don't drop it on your toe. Perhaps the mass helps it to handle booming bass better than lighter components can.

Which brings me to my second point: Nice bass! Again, I can't speak to the technical side.

My wife has been bugging me for years to get the Bose Wave music system. Our Panasonic SA AK33 has excellent sound but is too cumbersome to use and takes up too much space. Well you know the Bose is $500. Bluetooth is $100 more and an iPod dock is another $100 more. Cough! Is it worth $700? So I needed to find a small book shelf stereo that sounded as good as the Bose, had these features and cost less. After researching all the possibilities the Yamaha came out on top. The $400 price wasn't cheap but when it went on sale at Amazon for $350 I scooped it up. I haven't heard a Bose recently but I think the Yamaha sounds as good if not even better. My family even loves it. We like to use the bluetooth the most. You can sit on the couch with your iPad or other bluetooth device and play the music in your hands or watch youtube concerts and videos while sound fills your whole room. One thing you need to do is hold down the source button to disconnect the previous bluetooth source (IE:Dad's iPhone) and then turn on Mom's iPhone to connect. It doesn't pump out the yard filling sound of my Panasonic, but it does fill my great room with high quality audio. I recommend it. You can spend less money, but you won't get the same quality (Yamaha), Features, Size and Excellent Sound.

I just received the Yamaha MCR-B142GN (Green) today here at work. And work is what I bought it for. I am postmaster in a small one person operation rural Post Office and I wanted to enjoy my music. For 15 years I was a DJ at small independent radio station and I love music. I played alternative-country music - what ever that is. I first bought a Soundfreaq Sound Kick to have music at work. I liked the sound (for size & price) but it had some limitations. It was great to play music from my I-phone but I have 1500+ CD's and I also enjoyed listening to the radio.

After much research I chose the Yamaha MCR-B142. Why? Most reviews this unit and earlier models thought the sound was good - and it is. Even at moderate volume (remember I work at a Post Office) the sound is good and when I did crank it up it also sounded good. It has a CD player and AM/FM radio with very good reception. It is also attractive and sturdy feeling. I can connect via blue tooth my I-phone and I can bring in my laptop that has a ton of music on it and hook via USB. The remote is very functional. I like that you can adjust the bass, mid range and treble with remote.

You noticed that I described the sound as "good" - well it is good to be good. Is it as good as my NAD/Polk home stereo (which has great sound)? No. Is it as good as my Bose Wave radio? The sound is much better. Is it as good as my Tivoli bookshelf system? Yes it is - probably better. So good is good.

Any cons? It is somewhat expensive. The speakers are probably about 1/16th inch shorter than the receiver unit. They look even in the pictures.

The Yamaha MCR-B142GN is a great, versatile and attractive addition to this little Post Office. Nice to get complements for my music again.

First the Bad:
Really!? How can this not support iPod classic? I mean those are the high capacity iPods. They do list the supported iPods, and the classic is not listed, but I thought that it had to be an omission by error....Nope! So, my bad for expecting it to work. The iPhone 5 is supported, but you either need to use the USB connector or have one of the 30 pin adapters so you can dock it.
The USB port will play mp3 files from a thumb drive, but it plays in the order that the files were created on the drive (sorted by time stamp!) Also, It does not seem to support the mp3 tags. So, yes it works... But it is totally useless if you want to select an album or play a playlist. There is no point to the USB except to connect your supported iPod/iPhone/iPad using the cable.

The good:
There is an aux input, which I use to connect an iPod dock that I have, so I can use my iPod classic this way. This is annoying though, because now it looks cluttered on my kitchen counter and I thought I was getting an all-in-one system.

Bluetooth works as expected, I can use my smartphone to stream audio files stored on my phone, and all the audio from my apps... Sirius-xm, pandora, iheartradio, etc...

Cd player supports cd text (for those CDs that have artist, album, and song names embedded).

Audio is quite good, not like Bose sound wave or Cambridge sound works, but still quite good.

Bottom line:
I'll keep it because for some reason the red one that I purchased was $100 cheaper than the other colors at the time, so this offsets my disappointment about the iPod classic non-support.
But I see this is currently at $399.00... Keep an eye the prices. I got my red one here on amazon for $261.00 (with prime shipping) just over 2 weeks ago.
