Micro Systems and Stereo Hifi systems are very different things. Flashing coloured lights and exaggerated boomy bass appeal to some people, but if refined high quality stereo sound is a priority you will find that most micro systems just don’t deliver, but you may be very surprised by just how capable this one is. Introducing the Yamaha MCR-N670. Aimed at the discerning Hifi consumer this mini stereo Hifi system consists of a pair of Yamaha Grand Piano Craft bookshelf speakers in mirror black finish, a slimline CD player/Streamer with FM Tuner, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB and a separate amplifier good for 65 Watts per channel. The CD player/Streamer and the Amplifier components are available in Black Aluminium or Silver Aluminium finish, they’re quite petite and can be positioned side by side or one on top of the other, each measuring just 7cm Tall, 31.5cm Wide and 35cm Deep. Other impressive features include MusicCast- Yamaha’s intuitive solution for Multi-room Audio streaming, Airplay, access to music on Internet Radio, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and it can also send music wirelessly to a Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth headphones. The Yamaha MusicCast App for Android and iOS is very intuitive and well presented, making it really easy for anyone to enjoy their favourite music on any of the growing range of MusicCast products. A remote control is also included and features “Favourites” buttons which I think are great, you simply set your preferred source as “Favourite 1,2 or 3” and any time that button is pressed the Yamaha switches its power on and immediately starts playing your favourite music. To test the system’s capabilities and performance I played several types of music including Daft Punk, Dire Straights, Eric Clapton, Patricia Barber, Lana Del Rey and Peking Duk from different sources including CD, Deezer, NAS drive and Airplay from an iPhone X. The speakers are very capable and despite being slightly bass biased produce a well balanced, full and detailed sound that defies their size while consistently projecting a spacious soundstage and stereo image. Overall the sound is very impressive and involving, bringing the music to life nicely at low volume levels whilst having the power required to play at reasonably high volume levels without compromising sound quality.  The Yamaha MCR-N670 has proven to be a stand out performer in a segment with so many brands offering products with similar functionality but with much less emphasis on quality and refinement in the overall design, operation and performance of the product. The value is very impressive at $1299 for the complete system when you consider it would cost nearly double that to buy a pair of good bookshelf speakers, combined with an amplifier and CD player with Streaming functionality.
