  • Pros: The dock is awesome. Remote controller can pause play and restart. highly recommend it.
  • Cons: Sometimes getting my ipod connected (plugged in) takes an attempt or two. I know it isn't just me as two of my college age kids have trouble as well. It may be the angle and not a real issue.

Nice, does the job.

  • Summary: I purchased an extension cable for the iPod because I didn't want my kids (9 and 10) to break the existing connector. I don't know how strong it is, never had a problem, but I figured a $10 cable is worth the peace of mind.
  • Pros: Found it to be very nice for both of my daughters (I own 2) to use with their iPod Nano's. They enjoy it and the sound is nice. Very portable, something you can bring on vacation or take outside easily.
  • Cons: No place for additional inputs, wish it had this so we could hook any MP3 player to it.

Excellent sound for a small box

Noel F., Newegg
14 June 2011
  • Summary: Great little device for the sale price of 69.99. I have a huge backyard and this little thing can pump out sound well enough for the entire backyard.
  • Pros: - Excellent midrange sound - Distortion free at highest volume level - Small and compact
  • Cons: - Dock connector doesn't seem to be sturdy with my iPhone 2g - No aux inputs - only dock connector!

YAMAHA iPod dock

Anonymous, Newegg
30 May 2011
  • Summary: This dock may look small, but it plays really loud and clear. I am using my 5th gen Nano with EQ set to treble booster and it sounds great. Highs and midrange are very clear, bass is acceptable for speakers this size.
  • Pros: Excellent sound, works with every iPod I have(gen 2,4 and 5 Nano), simple remote, small footprint and price(it was on sale for $79.99 here).
  • Cons: It would be perfect if it had aux in and sub out and the power supply is not built-in, instead you get a power brick laying on the floor(I no like).

very useful bedroom system

Julius C., Newegg

  • Pros: i really like this unit. the sound quality is excellent once you accept that you'll get no stereo separation unless you put your head right next to it. it's incredibly well integrated with the ipod - the remote control works better than any other ipod dock i've ever seen. works with every ipod in...
  • Cons: i didn't think i'd miss it given what it's used for (ambient music), but not having an external input is sorely missed. i would love to be able to plug my android phone into it and stream pandora, for example. oh well - should have thought of that when i was buying :)

Nice for the Price, Size

Melanie C., Newegg

  • Summary: Really pleased with the purchase -- Yamaha does it right. Well packaged, the remote does everything imaginable, and the unit allows you to tinker with the iPod/iPhone while it's playing (so you can adjust the EQ, change/view playlists, adjust volume, etc.).
  • Pros: Unit has plenty of oomph, volume and not too big a footprint. It's not small, and it's not as pretty as the Bose docks, but it makes up for it in sound quality and volume. Can fill up a 500 square foot apartment without reaching or over-extending, and I bought this on sale so I'm thoroughly pleas...
  • Cons: It isn't as cosmetically attractive as the Bose stuff, and it's deeper (although not nearly as tall). A tad heavy, so moving it from room to room isn't recommended. And while it's not huge, it takes up about 25% of my nightstand. Also, not necessarily a con, but I wished this unit had a dedicated...

No RMA return. Has no external options or headphone

RANDY H., Newegg

  • Summary: I was kind of disappointed with Yamaha on this one. Their home stereo receivers that I have owned functioned flawlessly. No great engineering on this product.
  • Pros: Remote performs decent and the sound quality is decent. It also mutes when the iPhone has a incoming call, which is nice when you are walking around the house with blue-tooth. After call is done music resumes.
  • Cons: It is just a iPhone dock with speakers. Does nothing but play music with remote and no input or output jacks. I would go with Altec Lansing or the iBoom jukebox. iBoom jukebox has a remote that is LCD. It will show you volume and time left on song. Also hows the album cover and has decent sound.

Alright

Ivan V., Newegg
7 April 2011
  • Summary: I was hoping for a clearer sound, but this isn't all that terrible. I paid half price for it. Definitely not worth the $169.
  • Pros: All black, simple design, remote.
  • Cons: Sound is too boomy even after I messed with the EQ on my iPod.
