A must have...


A must have for using with Yamaha stereos and amplifiers. Use with your iPod or IPhone for great sound quality and Pandora internet radio.

Great Addition


I just have to say, I have been pretty spoiled by dealing with reputable on-line merchants that respond to orders quickly and ship in short order but, NOBODY beats NewEgg for lightning fast delivery, the best in the business.

Looks good, plug and play, charges iPod quickly and most importantly, really pumps out the tunes through my RX-V671, (also purchased through NewEgg)

Only reason I left it one Egg shy of perfect is that I don't see an option for shuffle play so that whenever you choose a playlist, they'll always play in the same order

Great product


I hooked this item up to my Yamaha receiver and multi channeled the dock to the pool area speakers, so that the kids can enjoy music, while outdoors, and we can also watch TV in the main room.

Yamaha YDS-12BL Dock


Using this with iPhone 3G. Works great as long as you don't have a cover on the iPhone as it will not sit on the dock properly with a casing on. It prompts an error about imcompatible device on the iPhone but works fine.
