Yamaha’s MCR-140 Wireless iPod Dock Sounds As Fantastic As It Looks [IPod Docks]

Yamaha’s latest iPod docks look fantastic—it’s made with metal, not plastic—and sounds damn near as good. Our quick impression is that the sound’s rich—highs aren’t tinny like most—and there’s some nice bass response.

The MCR-140 has a wireless transmitter that attaches to the bottom of your iPod and streams music using Yamaha’s own “uncompressed” wireless tech instead of Blueooth. The MCR-040—the orange one—is the exact same, but no wireless. iPod aside, they do CD, FM and USB. The 040’s $280, while the wireless step-up puts the 140 at $400, and they’re both out in October.
