Yeah, I think you made a few typos.  It says it’s $650.  Surely that can’t be right!

That’s got to be the worst deal ever.

Wow..I could buy a damn nice Bose system for that kind of money! Hope it’s a nice one!

Guys, welcome to the world of distributed home media.  If you can’t afford $650 iPod adapters, you aren’t in their target demographic anyway.  These systems can run into the high five figures to low six figures.  Must be nice and, of course, extremely wasteful.

This product is specifically designed for the NuVo Grand Concerto. You can not just go out and buy one of these and hook it up to your Sony reciever and expect it to work. In regards to comments about buying a “nice Bose system”; sure you can do that, but that Bose system can only be heard in one room/zone. Connecting this product to the Grand Concerto allows you to put the iPod in a centrally located base and control the iPod from any room/zone in a house. The Bose system can not do that. Also, this is an accessory to the Grand Concerto Suite which is a $7000 system (retail, not including installation) so spending $650 for an accessory is not bad. Kind of similar to adding a sunroof to your $7000 vehicle. Lastly, can you name another company that has a similar product on the market?

The NV-WIPS Wireless Remote NuVo dock for the I-POD is an advanced serial control unit that offers home automation features such as Meta data transfer. In other words you can actually use the I-Pod’s GUI from any where in the house and listen to the I-pod in any room. The unit currently works with our flagship Grand Concerto unit, unlike are other units the Grand Concerto features digital OLED Touch Keypads that act as a controller for source devices such as the I-Pod dock. The NuVo I-Pod dock works with our proprietary NuVo Net communications protocol and offers superior reliability and functionality.
