FCC

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: –

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
  • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

(RF) Exposure Guidelines

This equipment compiles with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This equipment has very low levels of RF energy that it deemed to comply without maximum permissive exposure evaluation (MPE). But it is desirable that it should be installed and operated with at least 20 cm and more between the radiator and person’s body (excluding extremities: hands, wrists, feet and ankles). This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

FAQS

does the unit have a sleep timmer, to turn the radio off after a pre selected time.

It has a sleep timer than can turn the radio off after 30, 45, or 60 minutes. It is invoked by a simple touch of the snooze button and it even disconnects your Bluetooth when it shuts off. For me this pauses my phone’s playback so I don’t waste bandwidth or lose my place in my audio book.

How loud are the buttons? If you had to set them with someone sleeping next to you.

Not sure what you mean by “loud”, but I always set the alarm through my iPhone app. The Bluetooth needs to be activated through its dedicated button for this to work.

can the brightness be dimmed all the way down for sleeping

The unit has auto-dim and adjusts when dark, then back to normal when light. Note: I mention in a prior post that Yamaha does not support/update their Apple app.

Is there funtionality that is only available via the app? Can you set the intelalarm profiles without a phone?

off course, you can use it with out a phone. It’s really good

Any possibility of getting the worldwide voltage set 110 – 240 V? Really love the individual alarm setting and awesome speaker by yamaha

Thank you for your inquiry. The Yamaha TSX-B72DR is only offered in 110V. Please let me know if I can be of any additional assistance.

Can you snooze the alarm and get a few more minutes of sleep?

Yes you snooze the alarm and get a few more minutes of sleep

Can this be used as a computer speaker through the aux. jack?

Yes, you can plug your phone or computer in via a 3.5mm headphone style jack. The sound would be pretty good for that purpose, but you would not get as much stereo separation as separate speakers on either side of your computer if you care about that.
