4.0 out of 5 stars Unlike Ronseal...., 14 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Apple iPod Universal Dock (Black) including Remote Control (Electronics)
...it doesn't do what it says on the tin! I have an Ipod video, which according to the manual should operate all of the 'extended' functions. It doesn't. I've tried upgrading my Itunes and Ipod software, as suggested by the Logic technical support, but this has no effect.

So the 'change album' feature doesn't work. Big deal! I have so many albums loaded that I can really see why I'd want to use this anyway. This is why I've only rated it as 4 star.

The unit is much more solid that it looks on the picture - quite heavy in fact - not sure what they've put inside (maybe a piece of lead?), so this is not going to be knocked off the top of my HI-Fi cabinet easily!

The remote is really slim, but simple enough to give me the most important functions without too much trouble - i.e. change track, pause/play and of course volume. Also worth noting that the range of the remote is quite impressive. I have a huge living room, and even half-way up it, 25 feet from the ipod, the remote works. Will also work at quite an oblique angle.

I haven't used playlists much in the past, but the change playlist function may be quite useful.

There are lots of ipod-docking 'hifis' on the market these days, but I have a very good 'traditional' component set - this is a great way of using it with the Ipod. Recommended.
