Pros looks nice next to my TV
Cons can't control music... what were they thinking. unit will collect dust until i put it in the trash
Summary sony has done it again... if it was 1995. not being able to control items on your ipod was sooo 2000. it being 09 Sony needs to grow up. don't make something compatible with an Ipod thats NOT compatible with an Ipod.
Pros Great sounding audio on my HT-IS100 sound system. This device came in the box with the Sony system I got for $300 dallors.
Cons Cant control video with remote.
Summary Its is a nice assersory if you have an ipod. I wouldnt have one if it didnt come with the sound system. But I am glad it did.
Pros Will likely match your Sony receiver/home theater system.
Cons Doesn't work with the iPod Touch or iPhone.
Summary Once again, Sony has created some proprietary B.S and failed to make it compatible with prevailing popular technology--still stuck on the stupid idea they can convince people to adopt platforms that have limited complementary products because Sony doesn't like to license or share. With the Apple phasing out it hard drive iPod in favor of the flash drive Touch and new Nano, you might as well just toss the TDM-IP1 that comes with your system in the trash or face having a useless dust collector sitting on top of your system.
When will Sony realize that they should focus on winning market share by creating well-designed products, and give up the pipe dream of dominating the electronics market by controlling everything.
