If you are plugging your iPod into your stereo system using the headphone jack on your iPod, you are actually processing your digital music files through the iPod's necessarily cheap digital audio converter and sending out the resulting degraded analog signal to your stereo system. This Onkyo docking station will allow you to instead stream the original, unaltered, digital files and have them processed into analog through your presumably better quality stereo system's digital audio converter. This is especially critical if you go through the trouble to keep non-compressed (non MP3 files) on your iPod. This docking station came shipped from Japan with a Japanese-language manual. The English manual is readily available on Onkyo's website.
This Product is great..Just recently recieved and tested.Money wise is quite expensive but worth.I'm gonna hook this to my DAC then to My Tube Amp. I have before the europian made which didn't last long and its not charging.but this one is charging and can select playlist and album. The design is good and the feature is good as well.I works very well with IPOD CLASSIC
