Too expensive for what the controls can do.
on July 11, 2013
I have a YSDL 11 Dock for both of my Yamaha receivers an RX-V1065 and an HTR 6080. They both use one cord to connect to the receiver, without any extra programming of the receiver. The Yamaha docks perform all basic functions including playback, search, stop, menu. Etc. By contrast this Onkyo dock, I can't get the Onkyo 809 receiver remote to recognize it, and I can't get it to display any album art using the dock. The iphone will not connect with the skin on it. Even with the receiver's usb connection the number of functions to control an Ipod or Iphone are limited. The receiver overall is great, the iphone or ipod controls are lacking a lot. Movie playback on my LG 55LW5600 is very nice but not 1080P looking using my Onkyo dock. I have another Onkyo receiver that is over 20 years old, and still works. I was just looking to update my home theater. I like my new receiver, the dock is the only feature that is not up to my expectations.
