In line with the growing convergence in entertainment formats, Onkyo has developed a sophisticated interface device for incorporating an iPod into your home entertainment system.
The ND-S1 digital media transport not only provides a seamless link between your portable media player and your home theater, it also lets you sync an iPod with iTunes at the press of a button.
A single USB cable connects the ND-S1 to your PC, while a single digital audio output connects it to your compatible A/V receiver, amplifier, or mini system.
Accurate, high-definition digital sound is ensured, thanks to a high-precision circuit clock.
High-Quality Digital Audio Outputs
With the ND-S1, your iPod’s precious audio files are transported in pure digital form from the unit’s optical or coaxial digital output. This provides a cleaner signal path than is the case with analog outputs, resulting in playback quality that’s more faithful to the original.
A Direct Link to Your PC via USB Port
Through the USB port located on its rear side, the ND-S1 provides a single cable connection to your PC. This opens up access to a wide range of audio and video content stored on your computer, which the ND-S1 can then in turn send to your connected amplifier, receiver, or mini system.
Easily Sync Your iPod with iTunes
Place your iPod in the ND-S1’s docking slot, and with a single button press you can sync it with iTunes on your connected computer. Alternatively, if you just want to keep your iPod content as it is, the ND-S1 provides the option of bypassing the automatic sync procedure.
