This venerable audio company’s new line of iOS-compatible stereo systems is led by the $550 TSX-B232, a one-piece audio system that can dock your iPhone or iPod; connect to your any iOS device via USB; or stream audio from any source via Bluetooth. It even has a CD player and AM/FM radio, if you’re still consuming your music in old-school fashion. The $450 TSX-132 is a similar system sans Bluetooth. Both the B232 and 132 are available in black or white.
For a bit more color—and stereo separation—the $450 MCR-B142 offers similar connectivity (iPhone dock, USB, Bluetooth) and sources (CD, AM/FM radio), but in a slightly larger package with bigger speakers that can be spread out for better audio quality. The $400 MCR-042 drops Bluetooth. Both MCR systems are available in any of 10 colors.
All four systems include a clock display and can be controlled using Yamaha’s iOS app.
