Yamaha RX-V673

 

Fantastic steering of surround effects, seamless surround field, scale, fine feature set

Some rivals sound a tad tauter in the bass

Awards 2012 Product of the Year - Home Cinema Amplifiers. A seriously talented amp, versatile enough to work with a wide range of systems

A Yamaha Multi-Function Device : Ymaha MCR-040

 

Allowing you to play music from a variety of sources is a new product from Yamaha combining a distinctive appearance and ease of use.

While I was happy with the audio output from most of the supported sources, there was one exception. Attaching an external device, in my case several MP3 players, via an audio lead connecting to the Portable socket resulted in a decrease in the volume...

Yamaha's MCR-040 is an excellent mini system with iPod dock, DAB, USB and CD playback. Prospective Aussie purchasers should shop around, though.

Great audio quality. CD playback. USB flash drive playback. DAB+ support. A great looking system, no matter the colour.

RRP is out of whack with overseas prices. DAB+ antenna is fiddly. Remote control isn’t well built or laid out.

Looks neat and modern. Sound is surprisingly good.

Fiddly, little, oddly coloured remote control.

We have bought this for the kitchen. The main body is on the work surface and, we have put the speakers on the top of the wall cabinets, the sound is great. Just what we wanted.

Yamaha MCR-040

 

The sound quality is amazing. I shall probably buy another for my bedroom and maybe the kitchen aswell. I'm not good with electrical items but this is easy to use.

None that I have found. Would have preferred it to be more square instead of long and thin but that's my personal preference!
