Superior Sound that Lives up to the Standards of the PianoCraft Series
The foundation of the MCR-332’s excellent audio performance is a Yamaha-developed digital amp that provides smooth, unforced sound output. The receiver’s separate digital and analog low-noise circuitry ensures thoroughly high sound quality, which is delivered by new-design speakers.
Digital USB Connection for iPad and Other USB Devices
A USB terminal on the top of the unit makes it quick and easy to plug in an iPad or other USB device. The digital connection permits fast, loss-free signal transmission.
Dock digital connection for iPod, iPhone
The iPhone/iPod dedicated dock provides a digital connection, which means that the digital signal from the iPhone/iPod is transmitted directly to the receiver. This minimizes noise interference and allows use of the MCR-332 DAC, rather than the /iPhone/iPod DAC, resulting in more precise sound reproduction.
Front Panel and Knobs Have Aluminum Hairline Finish
The aluminum hairline finish of the front panel and knobs also contributes to the over high class appearance of the system.
Luxurious Piano-Like Finish and Removable Speaker Grilles
Drawing on decades of experience creating fine pianos, Yamaha gives its speakers a beautiful piano-like finish that looks elegant in any setting. The speaker grilles are also designed for good looks, but can be removed for a more basic appearance.
New-Design, High Sound Quality 2-way Bass Reflex Speakers
The 2-way bass reflex speakers use new-design 4-3/8” woofer units, have deep cabinets and are supported by three legs that prevent external vibrations from affecting the sound. The result is powerfully resonant bass and rich mid-range and treble, so you enjoy high sound quality with good imaging.
VCCS Technology Ensures that the Speakers Accurately Reproduce the Sound from the Main Unit
Speaker cabinets vibrate, degrading sound quality. To overcome this, Yamaha drew upon its musical instrument manufacturing expertise to develop an internal structure called VCCS (Vibration Control Cabinet Structure), which uses strategically placed pieces of a composite material that provides excellent vibration isolation performance.
Large-size, Screw Type Speaker Terminals
Both receiver and speakers use these large terminals to ensure high quality, reliable connection.
Subwoofer Output and AUX-in Terminals
The subwoofer out terminals lets you connect a subwoofer to enjoy enhanced bass power and response. The AUX-in terminal allows connection of other audio components.
New Style Remote Control
The remote control has a simplified design that makes it extremely easy to use.
• FM/AM Tuner with Preset Tuning
• CD-text compatibility
Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad
“Made for iPod, iPhone and iPad” means that an electronic accessory has been designed to connect specifically to iPod, iPhone, iPad, and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards.
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.
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).

Big system sound with versitility (Posted on 12/23/2012)Who said BIG things don't come in small packages!
First, the sound is great,I set it up in the kitchen & it has more then enough power. I didn't need to adjust tone or anything else! If you try to fill a huge room, you might need the sub w. some people suggest, I don't see the need. The FM comes in great! the sound quality with my iphone blows me away! & last I hate remotes (have way to many) but this one will run the unit for me , simple but functional .
