The wireless RothDock from Roth Audio lets you enjoy your iPod or iPhone's music through your home audio system — even if it's in another room. The dock sends a wireless signal up to 32 feet away to its companion receiver, which connects to your system. And it automatically charges your docked player.

When your iPhone receives a call, the music automatically fades out and a ring plays through your system's speakers to alert you. The included remote provides basic iPod control, such as play, pause and skip. And you can play other portable devices through your system using the dock's auxiliary input.

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until a newer software update is available.

Wireless Receiver: The included wireless receiver plugs into your home audio system's auxiliary port and receives audio from your docked iPod or iPhone from the wireless iPod dock. The unit can plug into a 3.5mm stereo minijack port or stereo RCA port.

Auxiliary Input: The wireless iPod/iPhone dock also provides a 3.5mm auxiliary input so you can connect an additional external audio component and stream its audio content wirelessly to your home audio system.

Remote Control: The RothDock comes supplied with an IR wireless remote control to operate your iPod or iPhone. You can control playback and menu functions of your docked iPod or iPhone using the wireless remote.

Power Supply: The wireless iPod/iPhone dock and wireless receiver each come with its own AC power supply.
