Doing More with Your iPod—Through Onkyo’s Imaginative Sight and Sound
Simply place your iPod in the DS-A1 Remote Interactive Dock connected to any Onkyo RI-compatible receiver/amplifier to experience the
powerfully rich sound of Onkyo audio-video components. Control your music from your RI remote and charge your iPod while you enjoy your
iPod’s digital music—and photos—through Onkyo’s expansive sound, from mini systems to separate components to home theater systems.
Unlike purely iPod-dedicated systems, you can fully integrate the convenience and storage capacity of your iPod with all your other Onkyo
home entertainment components—and share the experience with everyone.
Onkyo’s Exclusive Remote Interactive (RI) Technology
Offers Remote Control of iPod
Over the last 10 years, Onkyo’s RI system has enabled users to operate, via
a single remote, all parts of a system set up with some or all of the following
components: receivers, amplifiers, Universal/DVD/CD players, disk changers,
MD decks, cassette decks and tuners. Onkyo owners have been able to enjoy
the same level of smooth operation as they would experience with an integrated
audio-video system. The DS-A1 is connected via the Tape, MD, CD-R or HDD
input (whichever is free) on your receiver/amplifier, and an RI connection is
made directly between the DS-A1 and the receiver/amplifier’s RI input. You may
then use the remote for the iPod’s common functions like Play, Pause, Next
Song and Previous Song.
Share Your Digital Photos through iPod Photo
By connecting the DS-A1 to your TV via the S-Video output on the RI dock’s
rear, you can share your digital photos (stored in an iPod photo) with others.
You can playback the iPod photo’s contents as a slideshow (frame-by-frame
playback is not possible) over the larger display of your TV—an entirely
enjoyable experience compared to viewing your photos over the limitations
of a computer display. While you relive your images, you also have the option
of music (through your Onkyo system) to accompany your slideshow.
Charge Your iPod Battery While You Enjoy Your Music
The DS-A1 has an AC adapter on the rear that needs to be plugged in when
you playback your music. When your iPod is in the RI Dock, which is plugged
into a wall socket, your iPod’s battery will charge, regardless of whether the
DS-A1’s power indicator is on or off. While you’re enjoying the iPod’s music in
the comfort of your own home, you’re also fully charging your iPod for when
you’re on the move.
A Range of Functions Designed to Integrate the iPod
with Onkyo Components*
Through the RI function, you can control basic iPod functions such as Play,
Pause, Next Song and Previous Song. Depending on your receiver/amplifier
and the version of iPod, the DS-A1 makes it easier to operate your iPod and
integrate it into your system. With the System On/System Off function, the
powering on/off of your receiver/amplifier will also power on/off the DS-A1
and iPod. Similarly, with the Auto Power On function, by pressing your remote
controller’s play function while your receiver/amplifier is in Standby mode, the
receiver/amplifier will automatically turn on and select your iPod as the input
source. The Auto Selector (Direct Change) function will automatically select
your iPod as the input source if you start iPod playback while listening to
another input source. And with the iPod’s Timer function, you can power on
and start playback at a specified time.
Increased Versatility and Enhanced Functionality
with Latest iPod Generations
The DS-A1 is compatible with the following: 3rd Generation iPod with touch
wheel and buttons (software 2.2 or later); 4th Generation iPod with Click Wheel
(software version 3.0.2 or later); iPod mini (software 1.2 or later); or iPod photo
(software 1.0 or later). 4th Generation iPods and iPod minis bring a lot more
than the basic functions (depending on your receiver/amplifier):* Shuffle for
Songs and Albums, Repeat modes, Backlight duration, and Playlist/Album
modes. If you upgrade your iPod or your Onkyo components, it is possible to
get greater remote capability.
* Available functions will vary depending on which iPod model and which Onkyo components are used.
