Product Overview: The ASD-11R iPod dock provides an interface between compatible iPod digital media players and select Denon audio-video components and systems. Components with a dock control jack or mini components with a system connector are compatible. Once an iPod is docked in the ASD-11R, you can control it using the Denon unit's wireless remote control. The iPod's battery is charged when docked. The dock allows you to view digital photos and video stored on the iPod on your TV. All text information can be displayed on the Denon component's front panel display, and in many cases, your TV, when used with the dock control jack.

Denon Compatibility: The ASD-11R is compatible with Denon receivers having the dock control jack and mini components having the system connector jack.

Additional Compatibility: The ASD-11R can also be used with components not having the dock control or system connector jack. In this case the controls on the iPod are used, rather than a remote, and the text information cannot be displayed on a TV.

iPod Compatibility: The ASD-11R is designed for use with select iPod models having a Dock Connector. Adaptors are included for the 4th generation 20, 30, 40, and 60 GB iPods and the iPod mini. The adaptors for the 5th generation iPods and up (including the nano) are included with the iPods. This add-on dock is "Made for iPod/iPhone compatible" and supports the following iPod model functions when used with a compatible Denon AV receiver (as of 9/27/2013):

Q & A

1 question already asked

I have not tried it but do not think so as there would be no power to the speakers. If they are powered speakers then it should work. For example, it works with the jawbone I have. Many manufacturers make such speakers. [ WILLIAM  Jan 12, 2014 ]
Yes, absolutely. As long as the speakers are powered. The down side though is that you don't a headroom and volume control other than on the speakers. [ Stephen  Jan 12, 2014 ]
I have not tried that application but I would assume that it would not. [ BRIAN  Jan 12, 2014 ]
