High-performance audio in an elegant, compact design. With rich 2.1-channel sound (with a separate dedicated subwoofer) tuned by Pioneer's EX Speaker Engineering team, and a double-isolated enclosure to eliminate resonance at high volume, the Pioneer XW-NAS3 redefines what's possible in audio quality from an iPod dock.
From the Manufacturer
Pioneer® XW-NAS3 Dock for iPod® and iPhone®: Don't Compromise Your Portable Music
Modern styling fits your lifestyle--
available in black or white (shown in white)
The down-firing subwoofer gives you
an immersive audio experience
Pioneer's Audition Series is the answer. You don't have to compromise audio quality when it comes to reproducing your digital music files. With its clean, modern styling and rich 2.1-channel sound with a dedicated built-in subwoofer, your portable music has never sounded so good on a compact unit. And with an optional Bluetooth® adapter, any one of your portable A2DP profile Bluetooth-enabled audio devices can benefit from the Audition Series' incredible sound.
A true digital connection with your Apple
media player ensures bit-perfect audio
The Audition Series is "Made for iPod" certified on all recent models of iPod: iPod Classic, mini, nano®, and iPod touch®. But it's also "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you have maximum ease of use with all your favorite Apple® products. And unlike other docks that use analog, the Audition Series features a true digital connection with your Apple media player, ensuring bit-perfect audio.
Expand Your Connectivity with Optional Bluetooth
For total flexibility, the Audition Series offers Bluetooth connectivity with an optional adapter (sold separately). Models with the optional Pioneer AS-BT100 adapter installed allow you to pair your iPhone, BlackBerry®, Android or other smartphone, as well as your PC, laptop or other A2DP profile Bluetooth-enabled source to enjoy pleasing stereo sound from the dock, wirelessly. If you already have an AS-BT100 adapter for use with your compatible Pioneer home theater system, that adapter is also compatible with the Audition Series--just plug the adapter into the dock's adapter port.
Dedicated Subwoofer for Rich 2.1-Channel Sound
The Audition Series features two 52mm full range speakers as well as a separate down-firing subwoofer, giving you unimaginably rich sound from a dock with a small footprint. You don't need to lug around a huge dock to get portable sound that's comparable to your home stereo--the Audition Series delivers an immersive audio experience with custom-tuned design by Pioneer's EX Speaker engineering team.
Double-Isolated Cabinet Eliminates Resonance
Conventional docks typically can't withstand loud volumes; even if the wattage can deliver it, a weak cabinet design often results in shaking and unpleasant "buzzing" or resonance at high volumes that dilutes the listening experience. But the Audition Series features a double-isolated enclosure that virtually eliminates cabinet resonance, meaning you can get a clean, accurate sound response.
Video output and optional Bluetooth connectivity (shown in black) view connections
The Audition Series features component and composite video outputs, meaning you can share stored movie and TV video files from your iPod or iPhone, or stream directly from YouTube® to your HDTV.

The Pioneer system advertises separate bass and treble but this is not the case.If you have a keen sense of hearing or if you are an audiophile,THIS IS NOT THE SYSTEM FOR YOU. If this system sold for $100.00 with free shipping then it would be a very nice option for a gift or for a student entering College. Unfortunately, this system is not a hundread dollars,thus it is not worth the money considering the sound quality that this system produces.
If you are not concerned with the sleekness and portability of a Ipod sound deck like I am,you may want to consider the sony LBT-ZX66I shelf system. It's not as sleek as the sony sound dock but it has a lot more power. Be ready though to pay
"Twice" as much for the extra power.
Out of the box,the sound is rich but somewhat boomy and boxy with bass. On the remote control, there is no adjustment to remedy the issue however the manual comes to the rescue, I set my Ipod 4G EQ to flat and man,I am in for a surprise. Sweet and clear soundwith just enough bass as I wanted. Stevie Ray Vaughn's guitar lick is quite a phenomenon from this little unit.
For under $200.00 is a steal, IMHO. If you want Bluetooth, my suggestion is either get the Pio Bluetooth adaptor but I use the Rocketfish Bluetooth receiver ( $59.00 at BB) and voila,it's done.
Highly recommended for the current price. I may get another one in black even thought the white color is also matching well with my Imac desktop.
Happy hollidays, every one.
1. The remote is virtually useless when using the iPod Classic (I own the first model) as it really only allows you to turn the unit on/off and then adjust the volume. If an album is pre-selected, then you can cycle through the songs, but you must use the iPod to select another album or change Genres.
2. For the price ($300) it's a bit over priced.
As reviewed by others, the remote has too narrow of an area in which it will work which is a shame as the product would otherwise easily get five stars.
