Our take on the Onkyo UP-A1 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
It's about as simple as you can get. The UP-A1 iPod dock has just a single universal cable to connect it to your compatible Onkyo receiver. That one cable sends music and video from your docked iPod or iPhone to your system. And the same connection draws power from your receiver for the UP-A1, so it can automatically charge your player without requiring a separate AC adapter.
Compatible with Universal Port (U-Port) Onkyo receivers. And you can control your player with your receiver's remote. With select receivers, the UP-A1 can generate an on-screen menu for browsing through your iPod's contents on your TV.
easy operation seamless works great
