Bottom Line:   
Excellent for most home stereo applications. The sound is passable and not any better or worse than directly connecting your iPod to your stereo. This is a convenience product, and as such it does make it more convenient to use your iPod in conjunction with your home stereo. Just plug n play. Simple! The remote, though small, is easy to use. While the iPod does not sound as good as most CD players, it is a very convenient way to store and listen to music. This docking station just makes it all the more convenient. I still almost always prefer my CD player, but when I have a party and need a constant stream of background music, this can't be beat! Other nice nice touches are the S-Video port and USB port so that you can also hook the unit up to your computer and TV. (I have never used the video functions on the player so I cant comment on that aspect).

If you want convenience at a decent price this product is for you. Don't fall for the iPod Boom Box trap... use your own home audio system for the best sound!

I am waiting for a someone to build a similar product which would by-pass the iPod DAC and instead supply some upsampling with a better DAC... heck maybe even a Tube preamp section! Lets make the iPod really sing!
