Gets the job done

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The YDS-10 doesn't take up any more space than necessary and has a clean look of quality. The cord connecting to the receiver is 4 ft so if you are going to be installing in and out of an entertainment center give the layout some thought. It does not need to be seen to be used however - you just need access to dock your IPOD.

Worked immediately and easily with my 80 Gb IPOD and a Yamaha HTR-6090 receiver.

The onscreen menu system is plain and my only gripe is that there is not a page by page scroll feature. Although with an exenteded interval of remote pressure the item by item scroll begins to move much faster.

If you have a Yamaha receiver this is a great way to enjoy your IPOD music.
