Superior Video Quality and More Versatility from Your iPod
The latest in Onkyo’s line of RI (Remote Interactive) Docks for the iPod links with your home entertainment system to get more out of
your music, movies, TV shows, music videos, and video podcasts. The DS-A3 is equipped with component video output, to ensure
greater quality and reliability for video playback. You also have the benefits found on earlier Docks: recharging capability; onscreen
display for navigation and content selection; a dedicated remote control; and integrated operability through Onkyo’s RI system.
Combining iPod versatility with Onkyo sound quality is a simple formula for pure enjoyment.
Integrating the iPod Family with Onkyo Systems
The DS-A3 smoothly accommodates the iPod touch (1st and 2nd generations),
the iPod classic, 4th and 5th generation iPod models, the iPod nano (1st, 2nd,
3rd, and 4th generations), the iPod photo, and the iPod mini.
iPod Video Playback via Component Video
By connecting a compatible iPod model to the DS-A3, you can view movies,
music videos, TV shows, and video podcasts on a connected display. Component
video connectivity ensures a stable, high-quality video signal output. The DS-A3
supports 480i and 576i output from the iPod touch, and 480p and 576p from the
iPod nano (3rd and 4th generations) and iPod classic.
Onscreen Display for Easier Navigation and Selection of Audio
and Video Content
The DS-A3 comes with an onscreen display (OSD) mode that enables you to
easily navigate and select video and audio content viewed on a connected display.
In OSD mode, you can browse your iPod content using the keys on the dedicated
remote controller.
Dedicated Remote Controller for Enhanced Control and
There’s no need to handle your iPod while it’s sitting in the DS-A3, as it comes
with its own remote controller that controls all basic playback functions. With its
simple layout and easy operability, this palm-fitting remote controller is particularly
handy for navigating and selecting your music via the OSD.
Recharge Your iPod While Enjoying Your Music
The DS-A3 comes with an AC adaptor that needs to be plugged in when you
play back your music. When your iPod is in the Dock, its battery will continue
charging as long as the Dock is connected to a power source. So, while you’re
enjoying your device’s music in the comfort of your own home, you’re also fully
charging the battery for when you’re on the move.
Added Functionality and Integration Through the RI (Remote
Interactive) Function
You also have the option of connecting the DS-A3 through the RI interface. This
gives you access to selected functions: System On/System Off, Auto Power On,
Auto Selector (Direct Change), and Sleep Timer. 09.2.3 11:01:06 AM
