Summary: The concept of the IPOD dock is simply great. I was surprised to learn that it is an available option AFTER we bought the receiver. It's such an important accessory, that one would think the Yamaha marketing folks would have included it in the point of sale materials. Go figure.
Summary: This products works as advertised and I am satisfied overall, but it could be better. My major knock on this product is that the connection is proprietary and will only connect to a Yamaha receiver with the iPod/Bluetooth connection.
Summary: With over 8,000 songs on my Ipod I couldn't imagine NOT adding this dock to my new Yamaha Surround Sound Receiver. It works just as advertised. One feature that puts it ahead of previous "docks" I've used is that the controls (wheel) on the Ipod itself still operate while the thing is docked.
Summary: I paired this with a Yamaha AirSurround system (ASIN:B000V7H1HC) <ASIN:B000V7H1HC>, and it worked instantly, without any additional configuration. You plug in the cable to the subwoofer system, the other to the dock, and use the appropriate plastic cover for the dock.
Summary: I bought a new Yamaha receiver and got this from here. Very happy with it. The receiver recognized that it was hooked up, I plugged in my iPod and voila - it works. It has a rather long cable which is nice.
Summary: I absolutely love this and if you want to listen to your Ipod through your reciever and be able to control it with the remote you will to. This has made it so easy and I would recomend this to anyone with and Ipod and a Yamaha reciever!!!
Summary: I got this dock for a couple of reasons: One, so I could lie in bed and use the remote control to scroll through music, and two, so that I could watch TV shows and/or movies from my iPod on my LCD monitor in my bedroom (which is where my RX-V559 receiver is hooked up). For music, it is perfect.
Summary: Bought this item for my sister this past Christmas and she absolutely loves it! Plug & Play with her Yamaha receiver and allows her to play her music from her iPod Nano through their integrated home stereo/intercom system in every room! Was on sale for $35.00 around Christmas time!
