Yamaha MCR-B043 Micro System Revs Up Home Audio; Superior Sound Meets Yamaha Motorsports-Inspired Design

The eye-catching model incorporates styling inspired by Yamaha motorsports vehicles

BUENA PARK, Calif. October 28, 2015 -- Yamaha Corporation of America, AV Division, today unveiled the MCR-B043, a great-sounding and versatile micro component audio system featuring colors and design elements created in collaboration with Yamaha Motor. The eye-catching model — available in racing blue, red, black, and white finishes — incorporates styling inspired by Yamaha motorsports vehicles.

The MCR-B043 supports a wide array of both streaming and traditional music sources. Bluetooth® connectivity allows for wireless music streaming from iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ phones and tablets. It also supports playback of CDs, AM/FM radio, and MP3s from USB memory sticks. An aux-in jack enables computers or music players to be connected to further expand its source compatibility. The model's USB port also provides a convenient way to charge a mobile device.

"There's a lot of overlap between motorsports fans and music fans, and this product brings together both passions in a really fun way," said Bob Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. "It's a must for Yamaha fans and for anyone looking for a compact audio system with big sound and bold looks."

"Music and motorsports go hand-in-hand," commented Bob Starr, General Manager of Communications for Yamaha's U.S. Motorsports Group. "They stir many of the same emotions in people, and this collaboration with Yamaha Music, is perfect harmony. We're excited to see our motorsports design elements and colors incorporated into a terrific Yamaha Music product."

The MCR-B043 boasts ample 4½-inch drivers with large-diameter magnets in each of its speakers to deliver rich bass, clear midrange, and lively highs. The speakers' large cabinets act like bass drums to further help produce deep and robust low-frequency sound. The speakers can be placed together with the main unit for a sleek look or separated to fill a room with a larger sound field. Compressed Music Enhancer, an exclusive Yamaha technology, restores the audio quality of compressed music files such as MP3s.

The MCR-B043 is loaded with convenient features, including a clock display, alarm, sleep timer and headphone jack for personal listening. It also comes with a remote control.
