Product Description

Product Description

The Yamaha YDS-12 Universal iPod Dock: "Works With iPhone"- Certified Convenience. There are several iPod docking stations on the market, but few are as convenient as the YDS-12, which is both "Made for iPod" and is now "Works with iPhone"-certified, unlike previous dock models. Connection is easy--simply plug the dock into a compatible Yamaha receiver's rear-panel port. Once connected, the dock not only charges your iPod and plays your favorite playlists through the receiver's stereo or surround speakers, but it also shows iPod images and movies through an attached monitor or HDTV. It's the perfect solution for people who regularly download TV shows from iTunes but want to watch them on a big TV or display. The rest of the time, you can rock out to all your favorite songs with style. And it works seamlessly with your existing Yamaha home theater system--the YDS-12 lets you operate your iPod from across the room using the receiver's remote control and onscreen display, so you don't need to rise off the sofa each time you want to change selections. Connecting your iPod to a home theater system has never been easier or sounded so good.

I purchased this for my Yamaha RX-V567. I did not fully understand from the other reviews the features and limitations of this dock, so I will try to explain it clearly here. You can find the "User Guide" on-line, but it is utterly useless - in 11 different languages.

The YDS-12 connects to your Yamaha receiver through a proprietary connector. This connector has upwards of 60 pins, yet the device has very few features. These receivers are capable of firmware updates, so it is entirely possible that future enhancements may one day be available. Other Yamaha receivers have gotten enhancements for their docks in the past.

Once connected, you can plug your Apple device into the dock - and here is the first big negative about the YDS-12. Like most Apple docks, your iPod/iPhone stands nearly vertical on its own (it actually leans back about 20 degrees). It is expected to stay in that position while it is docked, putting a good deal of pressure on the Apple connector. It is far to easy for someone to accidentally hit the iPhone/iPod and snap the connector off (or worse, break the mating connector in your expensive phone). I really wish Yamaha would have provided the option of a corded cnnector and a cradle to rest your phone in. This product is an accident waiting to happen - but even the Apple Universal Dock has this issue. Repairs to Apple connectors cost $50-$100.

Once you insert your Apple device into the Dock and put the Yamaha in Dock mode, the Receiver Display will say "Ipod Connected" (even if you are connecting an iPhone). Pressing the "Display" button on your Yamaha remote brings up the control menu.

This model finally works with the iphone 3gs and 4. There is an A/B switch on the back that makes this unit compatible with older Yamaha receiver's like the V365. On newer receiver's like the 367 the ipod will charge while the receiver is turned off BUT once it is charged it stops charging - stupid - so if you want to keep a ipod touch constantly connected it will be dead by morning because it will stop charging - the setting in the receiver is either off or auto - auto meaning to automatically cease charging once it detects a full battery then it will not turn back on unless the ipod is removed and reseated on the yds-12 - very dumb. Also why doesnt any info about the song display on the receiver's front display ? I mean the dock cable has like 50 wires in it you would think you would get a little more out of this connector than audio and a half butt charging function that fails when the unit is turned off. The first gen unit was weak and the second gen isn't much better other than it working properly with iphones and later itouch's. Yamaha - get the charging function working properly please ! Also the cable should be a little longer since the iphone/pod will be placed in a more open area not near the receiver.
At the Amazon price this is a buy but the retail price - no way .... hopefully version 3 they will get it right or at least update the receiver's firmware to properly charge ....

I have used several different cables to connect my iPod to my home theater system in the past with less than satisifing results. When I saw the Yamaha YDS-12BL I thought I would give it a try. I knew I could always send it back if I didn't like it. Was I suprised. The sound from the dock is impressive, the iPod stays charged, I can use the Yamaha receivers remote control to operate the iPod, several generations of iPod's and even the iPod touch and iPhone are compatible, and the hook-up was very simple. I couldn't ask for a better and more versatle product. As always, the best price and service is from Amazon (free shipping too).

Paired this YDS-12 iPod dock with a Yamaha R-S700 receiver. Works like a champ! As other reviewer(s) stated, the user manual is pretty worthless, however, the instructions from the receiver did help some. It took a little bit of playing to figure a couple things out as far as controling the iPod once it is docked. You control the iPod from the receiver remote control, not the iPod. However, it was plug, play and listen!! So far have connected an iPod Classic, iPod Touch and an iPhone 4s. Using this for music only, so I can't comment on the video capabilities.

Product works great on my rx-v2700. I connected my 3rd gen touch music sounds much better that connection through headphone since the receiver enhance mode kicks in. I was surprise that I was able to view my music videos on my LCD. I wish I had bought sooner.

What I have:
RX V461 AV Receiver
3rd gen Ipod touch 64GB
Yamaha YDS-12BL

Because I have an older Yamaha receiver and one of the newest ipods, I really only bought this to play music and charge my ipod (I didn't expect the onscreen display to show my song lists or for the video output to work). However, everything works great!
