I really wanted this when I saw it as it came with a remote and at the time it really was very rare to find an ipod dock that also had a remote control. This machine allows you to dock and charge your ipods and change the song via the remote control. I was pleased to find this item but even more impressed with the price as it cost £29.99 at the time.
As this has been out around 4 years now, you can buy it for less than £20, however it is timeless piece as it contains the different adapters to play your ipod or iphone, that is as long as it has the old fashioned wide adapter and not like the new five. Anything up to a four S will fit comfortably in the dock. The dock has an AC adapter lead for the plug so that it charges the device too which is really good. What I like about the stand is that it is small and you are making a feature of your ipod rather than the stand itself.
Volume is controlled through the hifi or the remote which is good and the remote is really accurate too. You can use it from quite a distance. I have this in my front room, ready for my ipod or when my guests comer over, they can slot their own device in and we can play different music. You may have to buy a different lead for this to hook it up if you want to connect it some speakers but the main way of connecting it to a hifi is through the headphone jack as long as it has one.
This is a very simple thing to set up and once connected you will have really good sound quality. I find that volume is high enough and you do not have to turn it up all the way to the top to get loud sounds, as it is quite clear sound quality you do not have to blast it out. I find that this is a very cheap piece of equipment for what you get. This is also authorised to supply products for Apple so you know that this equipment should not damage your ipod/iphone.
In addition to the standard UK plug you also get a two pin plug so you can take this abroad with you quite easily so you never have to be without your favourite sounds! I think finally, the best thing about this is how it looks. I like the stylish design it has and it will suit either a modern home or a classically styled one.
