Remote Interactive Dock for the iPod
Video Compatibility, Greater Control and a Heftier, More Detailed
Sound for 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, while delivering famed
Onkyo sound quality.Through an on-screen display function that enables you to view music track lists, the RI Dock ensures easy
navigation of your music via its dedicated remote control.The cradle-shaped DS-A2X, with its easy-matching black or white exterior,
neatly supports the iPod and recharges it as long as the Dock remains connected to an AC power supply. It also offers a wide choice of
integrated functions when connected through an Onkyo component’s Remote Interactive (RI) terminal.
On-Screen Display for Easier Navigation and Selection of Audio
The DS-A2X comes with an on-screen display (OSD) mode that enables you to
view track lists (artists, albums, songs, genres, composers) on your connected
display for easy navigation and selection. In OSD mode, you can browse your
iPod using the keys on the dedicated remote controller. And long lists on your
iPod are not a problem.You can choose from four page modes—Small, Medium,
Large and Page—that let you move through the list in progressively larger steps.
The OSD displays information about the track being played—playback status,
shuffle mode, playback time and total time—just like on the iPod itself.You can
also choose the background color of the OSD and set the time at which the
screen saver is activated.

Dedicated Remote Controller for Enhanced Control and
There’s 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 its
simple layout and easy operability, this palm-fitting remote controller is
particularly handy for navigating and selecting your music through the OSD. But
that’s not all.The remote controller also brings one-touch control for random
playback of 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.
Charge Your iPod Battery While You Enjoy Your Music
The DS-A2X has an AC adaptor 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 whenever 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)
With the first RI Dock model, if you wanted to control basic iPod functions, such
as Play, Pause, Next Song and Previous Song, you had to connect the Dock
through the RI terminal on an Onkyo component. With the DS-A2X, this is no
longer necessary. What’s more, you now have extra 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. Likewise with
the Auto Power On function: By pressing your remote controller’s play button
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.
Watch Your iPod’s Video Content and Share Your Digital Photos
Switch off the OSD, and you can enjoy video playback via the DS-A2X’s
composite video output. Also, you can view your photos as a slide show over the
larger display of your TV—a far more enjoyable experience than viewing your
photos on a cramped computer display. While reliving the images in your slide
show, you can also play music through your Onkyo system.
