Your sound system uses the iPod Universal Dock connector developed
for use with iPods. Recent models of iPod are supplied with Universal
Dock Adapter inserts which ensure correct alignment of the iPod with the
electrical connector. Earlier models of iPod were not supplied with the
necessary inserts and so your Sound 66 is supplied with inserts type 1-7.
Should you require a later insert to use your iPod with your sound system,
then please contact an iPod accessories supplier.
Dock connector for iPod
