"Not worth the $$"1.5 starson by RC_NY
Pros: Remote with a menu interface is a good idea...
Cons: The remote barely works and the sound quality is atrocious without major time spent fiddling with sound settings.
Summary: There has to be a better way then this. The remote idea is a good one, but the unit is realized so cheaply that it is almost unusable.
a. The connection between the remote and the dock drops out for what appears to be no reason at random intervals even at close range.
b. The menu is not really intuitive as the volume up/down key doubles as the up down navigation in the menus. You wind up turning up the volume when you want to switch tracks.
c. The RCA cable included in the box is the cheapest piece of lossy junk I have ever seen...but even when I used a quality cable by Monster the sound quality was horrible.
While I dont expect audiophile quality from a MP3 player/stereo connection...this was completely unacceptable. Distorted is the best way I can term the output...and I needed to turn the bass way down and the treble way up in order to make it sound even passable.
Too much work when all you want is to drop the IPod in and play it...
Look for something better, mine went right back to the store.
