Free to Roam and Stream with Wireless AirPlay RI Dock
Owners of Onkyo A/V receivers and stereo amplifiers—particularly older units that lack a USB or ethernet port—can now enjoy the
convenience of wireless audio streaming with the DS-A5 iPod®/iPhone®/iPad® Dock. The DS-A5—which connects to your system via
analog or digital audio outputs—features AirPlay for streaming over the home network. Just select an audio file, touch the AirPlay icon,
and the dock powers up your system and commences playback. Or, with a few clicks of the mouse, you can send music wirelessly from
your computer’s iTunes library to the DS-A5 for playback over your hi-fi or home theater. Superior sound quality is assured when using
the digital audio output, which transports the signal directly to your Onkyo receiver’s audiophile-grade Digital-to-Analog Converters
(DACs). A composite video output enables movie and photo playback from iOS device on your TV, while an RI connection centralizes
control of your system into one main remote. With the DS-A5, you can dock your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad anytime for a recharge,
or continue using it anywhere in the house while streaming your favorite music at the same time.
