DS-A2x_US NPRpg1
Bringing Greater Control and a “Heftier, More Detailed” Sound—With Video—to Your iPod
The next-generation Remote Interactive Dock for the iPod, the DS-A2x, brings the iPod even closer to Onkyo’s world. With the ability to
accommodate video files alongside audio, the DS-A2x brings out the full potential of the latest iPod models combined with Onkyo A/V sound
quality. Also, with an on-screen display function enabling you to view music track lists, this Dock ensures easy navigation through your music
options via its dedicated remote control. The DS-A2x’s cradle-type build—with an easily color-matched black exterior—neatly supports the
iPod, and even recharges while the Dock remains connected to an AC power supply. And like its predecessor, the DS-A1, it brings you even
more functions to choose from when connected through an Onkyo component’s Remote Interactive (RI) terminal.
On-Screen Display for Easier Navigation and Selection of Audio Tracks
The DS-A2x comes with an on-screen display mode(OSD) that enables you to
view track lists (artists, albums, songs, genres, composers) on your connected
display for easy selection and navigation. When you have the OSD mode
selected, you can simply use the keys on the dedicated remote controller. If
you have long lists on your iPod, you can use four page modes—Large, Medium,
Small and Page—to move through the list in progressively larger steps. The
OSD will display information about the track being played—playback status,
shuffle mode, playback time, total time—just like on your iPod itself. You can
also choose the background color of the OSD and set the time at which the
screen saver is activated.

Charge Your iPod Battery While You Enjoy Your Music
The DS-A2x has an AC adapter on the rear that needs to be plugged in when
you play back your music. When your iPod is in the RI Dock, your iPod’s battery
will charge when the Dock is connected to its power source. 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.
Added Functionality Through the Remote Interactive (RI) Function*
With the first iPod Dock model, it was necessary to connect the Dock through
the RI terminal on an Onkyo component to control basic iPod functions such as
Play, Pause, Next Song and Previous Song. This is not the case with the DS-A2x
but you have more options available through the RI function. For example, with
the System On/System Off function, the powering on/off of your system will
also power on/off the DS-A2x and iPod. Similarly, with the Auto Power On function,
by pressing your remote controller’s play function while your system is in
Standby mode, the system 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.
*U.S. patent pending for Remote Interactive function (U.S. patent Application No. 11/323,670).
Dedicated Remote Controller for Enhanced Control and Functionality
You’ll have absolutely no need to handle your iPod while it’s sitting in the DS-A2x
as it comes with its own remote controller to control all basic playback functions.
With a simplified layout and operability, this hand-sized remote controller is
particularly effective when you navigate and select your music through the OSD.
But that’s not all. The remote controller also brings one-touch control for random
shuffle playback over songs or albums; a resume function that will return to
the track being played when the iPod is stopped or removed from the Dock;
and a repeat function for one track or all. The remote controller can also be
used to set its own ID (an option when you have multiple remote controllers
as part of your system) or to select NTSC or PAL for video playback.
Watch Your iPod’s Video Contents and Share Your Digital Photos
You can simply switch off the OSD to enjoy video playback via the DS-A2x’s
composite video output. Also, you can view photos as a slide show (frame-byframe 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 slide show.
