It includes an AirWired cradle that will allow you to use your iPod or iPhone as a remote, a dock on the main unit to charge your iPod, and it’s available in three different colors that have matching LED displays.

Yamaha’s MCR-140 Wireless iPod Dock looks retro and awesome

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2009

Yamaha's MCR-140 Wireless iPod Dock looks retro and awesomeWow. We are really seeing some actual cool iPod docks this week. Yamaha’s latest are amazing looking. It’s not just looks either, it’s made with metal, not plastic and apparently that doesn’t hurt the audio quality very much. In fact it is said to have a very rich sound and the “highs aren’t tinny like most—and there’s some nice bass response”.

What strikes us most about the MCR-140 is the awesome retro look, but some other features include: a wireless transmitter that attaches to the bottom of your iPod and streams music using Yamaha’s “uncompressed” wireless tech instead of using Blueooth. The MCR-040 (the orange one) is the exact same unit, but not wireless. They also handle CD, FM and USB.

Yamaha MyRoom II: Ultimate office for shut-insWhen you want to get away from it all, sometimes it seems like there’s nowhere to go. All you desire is a little peace and quiet. Is that too much to ask? You need your own little Fortress of Solitude away from kids, TVs, phones, etc. A place to drown out the sounds of the world so you can work. Serenity now!

The Yamaha MyRoom II is more then happy to rescue you with a soundproof booth the size of a tiny prison cell. It has enough room for you and a chair and desk. It even has it’s own air conditioning system and adjustable lighting. The whole thing is about, 4.5 by 6 feet, so you won’t be taking any naps. You might also want to throw problem people inside, so you have the now quiet house to yourself. What are the chances these things end up with WoW stickers all over and nerds enter but never leave?

Yamaha Silent Guitar lets your strumming be seen and not heardIf you have a kid learning the guitar chances are your ears could use a break. You’ll want to invest in this Yamaha Silent Nylon String Guitar. Plugging in a pair of headphones lets you practice at your own pace without annoying everyone around you.

You can also connect a CD player into the guitar itself so you can play along directly with the music, despite the fact that CDs are pretty much obsolete. Why they didn’t just build an mp3 player in it is anyone’s guess. Still, it’s a nifty instrument to have around. Especially fo those living in small apartments. The Yamaha Silent Nylon String Guitar will retail for a hefty $499.99. But silence is golden.

Yamaha’s EZ TP Electronic Trumpet is powered by humming

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2008

Yamaha’s EZ TP Electronic Trumpet is powered by hummingThe EZ-TP Electronic Teaching Trumpet from Yamaha is now available in Japan. Sorry rest of the world. You’re going to have to wait to get your lips on this one. It’s a digital way to learn the trumpet and share and save your MIDI-produced songs to your computer. The EZ-TP trumpet is designed to react to humming, not your mouth positions.

Apparently this lets you play the instrument by making the proper tones yourself. The Lighted Teaching System teaches the proper way to learn fingering. You can even download songs online and load them onto the EZ-TP with the supplied MIDI cable. It has to be asked. Will the amateur kill this device by filling it with their nasty slobber and spit? If so, good way to teach the musical apprentice would be for the instrument to spit it back at them.
