I recently purchased a Yamaha R-S300 audio receiver to replace my old JVC JA-S55 unit that finally gave up the ghost after 35 years of flawless service (my decision to go with Yamaha is in no way a negative reflection on JVC). Rather than buy a CD player, I wanted to try a dock for my iPod Classic (to which I had previously imported my collection of 800+ CDs - there's still plenty of room on the iPod for more). This little number was manufactured by Yamaha specifically for Yamaha products, so my purchase decision was a no-brainer. The dock works great with my receiver, and my iPod is kept charged and ready to go mobile at any time. Great product.
