    Have not used the product yet, looking for iPhone adaptor for dock and cannot find one. All of the features look amazing and I can't wait to try it, but the product comes with three iPod adaptors and no adaptor for the iPhone, which means that only the connector in the dock is supporting the weight of the iPhone. The manual states "A dock adaptor for the iPhone is not included. You'll need to use one separately", that's it that's all. And so far, no luck finding one. I will set up the system today and see if I can either make a support or see if any of the iPod adaptors provide at least some support. I would recommend the product but with the caution on the iPhone adaptor.

    Does not work on IOS 6

    Before buying this unit. Make sure that your Audio processor support IOS6. Otherwise this is redundant.

    With the previous version of iPod or iPhone everything works like charm.

                  Convenient. Just plug in your ipad/iphone and play it. Need a charge? Just plug it in to the dock. No messing with cables to play or charge your ipod. Well made. Seems a bit over priced, however.

                      Very compatible with the Yamahareceiver I bought. Plugs right in to the port in the rear, and provided adapters make the fit perfect for iPhone and iPod.
