Marantz intros IS301 Wireless Dock for iPod


Marantz has announced its new Bluetooth-capable IS301 Wireless Dock for iPod. The multi-piece system includes a slim handset that attaches to the user’s iPod, a compact base unit for the handset and attached iPod designed for tabletop or on-wall placement, a remote control, and a main connection unit that provides a variety of connections to the user’s home entertainment system, including CAT5 audio and video ports, analog audio output, composite, S-Video, and Component video outputs, an IR flasher input, and a RS232C control input. In addition, because it offers both wireless and extended wired solutions, the system can be used to transmit both audio and video to an entertainment system; the main base unit may also be connected to any device that supports A2DP Bluetooth audio. The Marantz IS301 Wireless Dock for iPod is expected to be available in January, and will sell for $250.

You can do this much cheaper by plugging an Airport Express into your system and stream iTunes content through that.  I plugged in Airport Express into a Russound CAV6.6 unit - using remote from my iPhone I’m able to control whole house music.

It is only wireless for audio.
I understand that to get video from ipod to TV you need to: put ipot into the craddle, craddle into the dock, connect hte doc to base station by cat5 cable and then the base station to TV.
It is not clear how the ipod when in the craddel or whn in the dock can control the audio system. Does it control Marantz-only devices and how?
I searched a lot for info but info is very poor.
Still I am very interested in the product and would like to find out.
I think a fantastic product woudl be ani-pod based universal remote (ipod application + an accessory with IR port, or a built-IR port in future ipods).
