Product Research


Product Overview: The YDS-11SL iPod dock provides an interface between select iPods with a dock connector and select Yamaha audio-video components and systems. Yamaha components with a universal dock jack are compatible. Once an iPod is docked in the YDS-11SL, you can control it using the Yamaha 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 select iPods on your TV. All text information can be displayed on your TV.

Yamaha Component Compatibility: The YDS-11SL is compatible with Yamaha receivers having the universal dock jack.

iPod Compatibility: The YDS-11SL includes three plastic adapter inserts, which will accommodate 4th generation iPods (20GB, 30GB, 40GB, 60GB) and iPod mini (4GB, 6GB). Adapters for 5th generation iPods and newer are included with the iPod itself. This add-on dock is "Made for iPod compatible" and supports the following iPod model functions when used with a compatible Yamaha AV receiver (as of Dec. 2009):
