The Yamaha CRX550 is very much the mini system for the audiophile.

iPod dock & quality DAC

Featuring a built-in dock the Yamaha CRX550 will let you charge, control and listen to your iPod/iPhone without the need for wires or separate dock. Using a digital connection for a purer sound quality and the Yamaha's own DAC will liberate the sound from your iPod. The Burr-Brown DAC, also used by the CD player, is a high quality unit - especially for a mini system and means that music from both iPod/iPhone and CD sounds dynamic, detailed and natural.

High performance components
The CRX-550 uses a high performance analogue power supply for its amp. Designed for low noise and clean power, the 32W power output is plenty to drive a wide range of speakers. Other expensive components, including custom-made block capacitors, combine to give class-leading sound quality. Finally, the Music Enhancer restores data lost during the MP3/AAC/WMA compression process for near CD quality performance with greatly enhanced dynamics.

USB port, CD player, DAB+ and FM tuner
In addition to the digital iPod dock there's also a USB port. This lets you connect other MP3 players or smart phones and access the music stored on them. Added to this there's of course the CD player and DAB/DAB+ tuner. With DAB+, the CRX-550 is fully equipped for the future yet can still receive today's digital broadcasts and those from analogue FM, too.

Built to Yamaha's usual high standards and with a clean, minimalist look, the Yamaha CRX-550 looks every bit the smart and sophisticated mini system it is. If you love listening to music from your iPod/iPhone and are looking for a mini system that will make the most of it, you need look no further.

Note- the pictured iPod is not included.

Don't forget to add speakers, as they're not included with this system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality build, disappointing sound Beautifully finished, heavyweight chassis. CD mechanism is very smooth. Even has a quality remote. The sound quality ,used mainly on headphones , is disappointing. OK, but not miles better than my previous cheap end Sony micro system. Note, radio is FM only-no DAB However, it was a good price and I would rate it overall as good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased with the Yamaha CRX550 Bought to replace an old Sony mini system which I got from Argos many moons ago. The sound quality of the CRX550 was immediately noticeable compared to the Sony system. I'm running it through an old pair of Monitor Audio Bronze B2's, which are probably not ideally suited really as I have to wind the volume up quite a bit with CD's. Nice little unit - I'm pleased with it, and glad I chose this rather than the Denon jobbie I was thinking of going for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yamaha unit Excellent piece of equipment for a cheap as chips price, had a more expensive unit that cost over £600 that had broke so replaced with this Yamaha unit and couldn't believe the sound quality just as good as my more expensive unit if not better. Really chuffed with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Bought as 2nd system to listen to classical CDs. Arrived last night and it is really great. Sounds brilliant. Important points for me also are that the CD transport is quiet and that it doesn't put gaps between tracks in CDs. It all seems very logical to use, although most of the functions rely entirely on the remote, so I don't want to lose that. The ipod dock (older type) is on the top, as the photo suggests, which I won't be using, but the USB socket is next to it, so if you want to tuck this unit into a cabinet with limited height and plan to use the USB socket, you might be toiling. I comes with a nice blanking plate for the ipod dock too. On the appearance side of things, it looks lovely to me, but my wife hates the fact she can see into the circuitry through the grills on the top and sides and wants it hidden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good range of simple features. I needed a product to replace a unit I use on holiday. Needed to be simply a CD player/receiver. This also lets me use my ipod and phone, expanding my music range and reducing my dependency on wall charger capacity when abroad. Quality seems very good and the unit was a dawdle to set up. Pretty good value too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The is a first class system with all the features I wanted in a confined space, the service cannot be bettered and this just adds to the experience I am not technically competent to comment other than to say the sound is great with compact speakers, DAB & FM tuning is top notch with the supplied combined aeriel, great CD reproduction and both the I Pod & USB connections give fantastic range. I am delighted with every aspect of the listening experience and found it a complete doddle to set up. The remote is just fantastic, just sit back and enjoy. One very minor problem for me was that the mains lead is fixed so if this is going into a unit with a back you either have to make a hole large enough to take the plug through or replace the plug so you can feed the wire through a smaller hole, easy to overcome but a bit of a faff.
