First, it does not display any other contents in iPod than music and video, for example, photos can not be displayed, which is an important usage of iPod.

Same product as the DS-A2 except that it can play video. Sound is good with my Onkyo 606 receiver. Remote layout is confusing and has a very limited range. On-screen display is horrible. It looks like DOS back in the 80's. If your not interested in playing video, save your money and buy the DS-A2.

I finally broke down and bought an iPod... Besides the gadget factor it seemed like a good method of moving music between the Onkyo TX-SR576 AV Receiver in the living room and the Sony STR-DH500 AV Receiver upstairs in the den, rather than hand-fulls of CDs, and, though I've set up my LG BD players for movie file sharing from a server, I've not done this with music with much success. A lot of the information in this review is provided because I have the ability to compare behavior between this Onkyo DS-A3 dock and the Sony TDM-IP50 Dock. Any references I make to "iPod" or "nano" are to the iPod nano 5th generation that I recently acquired, I have no experience with any other Apple product or other manufacture's MP3 players.

The DS-A3 dock is plastic and has a flat-black appearance and a moderate amount of heft (weight) to it. I'll come to that later when I talk about connecting/disconnecting the iPod with the dock. It comes with a remote control, though most features can be handled via the Ri interface (Onkyo's inter-device protocol) and the receiver's remote. The device came shipped with all cables needed. There is a red-white-yellow bundle of RCA cables (about 3') to carry L-R audio and composite video. As an alternate video output, there's a headphone-type jack and a cable that plugs in to it that at the other end spreads out to 3 RCA component video connectors (I'm using the single, yellow composite). Also in the back is a power input for the included 5v DC power adapter, as well as a male-male cable similar to headphone cable used for the Onkyo Ri interface.

The bottom of the dock area is flat and roomy, with the exception of the iPod-compatible male electrical/mechanical connector.

Very functional, good product. works well with my iPod touch and my iPhone 3GS, although the iPhone puts up an incompatibility message with this device, it will charge and transmit audio/video without a problem.

I tried three different IPOD docks with on-screen displays (this Onkyo, the DLO Hi Def home dock and one by Radio Shack). I returned them all and bought an Apple TV. The DS-A3 text-only on screen display is so bad that it has some genuine campy, retro appeal. It's fun in the way that gettig out your old Atari 2600 is fun. My favorite part is the status bar that shows how much is left on the current song. It represents a half-played song like this: [>>>>>>>> ]. As the song progresss, you see more arrows. If that's what you're into, that's cool. I can see some advantages to this ultra-simple approach: it is probably bullet proof, it has virtually no boot up time and it does not have any delay while album art and other fancy features load. Also, the composite video output is nice for people with older TVs. But if you are trying to get digital music onto your home stereo, better to spend the money on an Apple TV.

Really great to be able to listen to the music on my iPod in surround sound, and easy to control too.
The on screen display is VERY average though. Easy to navigate, but looks very bad. But still good to be able to watch the videos I have on the iPod on my TV.

The dock works fine although the on screen display is poor quality. My biggest complaint is with customer service. I am new to HDMI and it's been 15 years since I bought my last stereo equipment so I found the manual confusing on how to setup since my dish receiver and TV use HDMI. I sent an email to Onkyo and both their responses were even more vague than the manual. After some trial and error I figured it out with no help from Eric at Onkyo.

Excellent sound and video quality, very flexible as it fits any ipod/iphone without having to remove protective covers, only need to screw in or out the back rest.
It's solid and it also looks very nice on the furniture.
Only downside (and why a 4 star rather than 5) is that the remote control is less than intuitive. It's simple but and it has all functions that one could think of but it feels like somebody threw the buttons ranmdomly.
