Use NAD's IPD 2 dock to connect your iPod to your home audio/video system and get more fun from your digital music, photos, and videos. This dock works with NAD receivers, as well as other brands of audio/video gear.

Note: The IPD 2 only provides iPod/iPhone text display for NAD units which feature a proprietary 3.5mm data-port. Apple software updates may change functionality results (you may need to reset your iPod or iPhone).
Analog Audio/Video Output: The NAD IPD 2 is equipped with analog audio (stereo RCA) and a S-video connection to connect to your home A/V receiver and television for playback of music and video files from your compatible iPod or iPhone.
Charging: The NAD IPD 2 will automatically charge your compatible iPod or iPhone when docked.
Remote Control: The NAD IPD 2 iPod/iPhone dock comes with an IR remote control so you can operate your docked iPod or iPhone wirelessly. The included remote will control menu and playback functions of your iPod/iPhone.
Note: Volume is controlled by your A/V receiver when using the IPD 2 Dock. You can still operate your iPod or iPhone's controls from the click-wheel or touch-screen while it is docked.
Data Port (for iPod/iPhone OSD): The NAD IPD 2 is equipped with a proprietary 3.5mm data-port which allows control and display of your compatible iPod's media from select NAD components which also feature the same proprietary 3.5mm data-port. Using this port, you will be able control playback functions of your iPod/iPhone from your compatible NAD component's remote control and be able to view iPod/iPhone text on the component's front-panel 2-line display. You will also be able to view an on-screen display on your television (through S-video) and browse your iPod/iPhone's media content via this OSD. Selected track and playing time are displayed, and your music library can be browsed without interrupting play. Navigation is fast and responsive in keeping with Apple's renowned music library software.
Note: At this time the NAD models including this data-port are the AV receiver models - T785, T775, T765, T755, and T175. If you connect the NAD IPD 2 to a component that does not feature this data-port, you will only be able to view iPod/iPhone text from your iPod/iPhone's display and you will have to use the IPD 2's included remote or your iPod/iPhone's click-wheel or touch-screen to control playback.
