Conclusion: The ASD-11R allows me to operate my Ipod from my wireless home theater remote when I'm out on the patio. Very handy indeed. The only reason I rate it a 4 stars is the on-screen graphic interface is horrible.... it looks like someone traveled back to the 80's and stole the operating system from a Commodore 64.... the graphics are all block lettering in black & white.
Summary: Bought this for my dad to go with his Denon D-M31 system, in the hopes that it would give him a easy plug in & charge for his iPod, and also give him on-screen controls. The first two things are covered perfectly, but the last doesn't work at all, I've tried numerous configurations, and followed the extremely vague and confusing instructions as best I could, but I got nothing. Perhaps it only works with full size AV systems that have their own video output?
Summary: Bought this dock to go with my new Denon receiver as I thought it would be a compatible device. No auxillary input on the back of the receiver and which required the dock jack to be plugged into the jack input at the front of the receiver. To compund the misery to dock jack cable from the dock to the jack input did not work and I am now forced to plub the dock jack cable directly into the iPod for it to work. The only good thing with this dock is that it charges my iPod.
Summary: First off, in this day and age, paying over $100 for something that is ONLY a dock is a little ridiculous. Having said that, let's assume that like me, you spent a lot of money on your stereo system, and you are tired of seeing your ipod sitting there plugged into your expensive Denon amp with only a dangling RCA cable. Oh, and you'd really like the charging feature. So, you go out and spend the money on what seems like the perfect solution.
