Confusing till you spend some time with it. But I like it.
29 September 2011
Summary: I bought the earlier version (DS-2AX), but all the features look the same and the remote is identical. Like anything else, it is best to hook it up and play with it with the manual hidden. Then , after figuring out 85% of it, grab the manual. It is a bit confusing, but this is day 1 for me, so fair is fair. The base is solid & handsome, the adjustment pad on back does the job well, the outputs on the back offer everything you need.
Summary: Great little unit. Sensible menu system and the small remote works really well (it will even adjust volume on your Onkyo amp straight out of box). Only criticism is that the RI link didn't work on my Onkyo amp. I have an older amp, the TX-SR800 (7ish years old), so I only half expected it to work on this ipod dock, a problem that I expect will rectify itself when I upgrade in the future.
Summary: Bought this unit to mate with HDX 22 speaker system. Install very easy and worked out of the box. The adjustable backer device is a nice touch. Too bad it costs almost as much as a small Ipod.
Summary: As mentioned in the earlier reviews, this dock does not display a lot of fancy graphics, but it works. I have 4 iPod docks. The DLO, which I have tried 3 of, has never really worked and is poorly supported. Every one of the DLO docks is a nightmare of bugs and glitches. You would have thought, as I did, that a company like DLO would make a better product. I tried those docks a year apart and they all exihibited the same issues.
Summary: Excellent sound and video quality, very flexible as it fits any ipod/iphone without having to remove protective covers, only need to screw in or out the back rest. It's solid and it also looks very nice on the furniture. Only downside (and why a 4 star rather than 5) is that the remote control is less than intuitive. It's simple but and it has all functions that one could think of but it feels like somebody threw the buttons ranmdomly.
Summary: I finally broke down and bought an iPod... Besides the gadget factor it seemed like a good method of moving music between the Onkyo TX-SR576 AV Receiver in the living room and the Sony STR-DH500 AV Receiver upstairs in the den, rather than hand-fulls of CDs, and, though I've set up my LG BD players for movie file sharing from a server, I've not done this with music with much success.
