Onkyo DS-A2 iPod Dock

Integrating an iPod with a home theater is difficult, since few iPod docks do more than relay their music or video to another device. Onkyo's DS-A1 dock was a helpful but only partial solution: it could communicate with other Onkyo AV equipment and gain advanced controls not present with other docks, but control of the iPod through the remote was limited to basic track navigation and the iPod's existing visual interface. An update to the dock, titled the DS-A2, was announced on Wednesday and does much to address the earlier shortcomings. Onkyo now bundles a more advanced remote that can repeat or shuffle whole albums and playlists as well as resume from the last track played before the iPod turned off. An on-screen display works in tandem with the remote to show information about the current playback mode from a distance. Onkyo has given the DS-A2 a glossy black finish (in contrast to the white DS-A1) and is shipping it today for $109.
