The DS-A3 dock gives you a convenient way to connect your iPod or iPhone to Onkyo components and systems, as well as other brands of audio/video gear. An included audio/video cable connects the dock to your receiver to transmit music, photos and videos from your player. The DS-A3 can also generate an on-screen menu for browsing through your iPod's contents on your TV.
The DS-A3 connects to the proprietary RI ("Remote Interactive") port found on most Onkyo receivers currently available, allowing you to control your iPod using your Onkyo remote. The dock also comes with its own remote for use with other types of audio/video gear.
