Summary: With the advent of the iPod to hold hundreds of CD's, the older Bose Lifestyle systems do not have the appropriate connections to use the Bose docks. On a recent visit to NYC JR staff introduced us to this device. Plug and play all the way and so much better than having the iPod just on a table radio.
Summary: I own a dance studio and we have purchased older generations of the Onkyo iPod docks and have been pleased. But this dock was extremely easy to set up and so nice to use!! No matter what type of iPod or iPhone our instructors have, it works wonderfully!
Summary: Very happy with this dock! On-screen navigation isn't as slick as the GUI on my Ipod...however, it works well. I'd like to have the Album artwork display on my TV...maybe next dock will have that. Overall, I'm very pleased with this dock.
Summary: My recommendation is marginal at best. While I like what this dock can do with my system, it's use is annoying if your system isn't simple. I have to remember a complicated series of setups to use this and then reset the system back to previous settings for all other components. Initial install is arcane at best. It's setup as if you have no other peripherals on your system (including the ones utilized by the dock's host: iPhone).
