I am very happy with this Sony all in one system. The remote has brilliant connectivity with the ipod (by this I mean you can use it to remotely control the ipod, browse through menus, playlists, etc).
I had a BOSE Sounddock before and it was absolute overrated rubbish if I'm honest! The remote didn't control the ipod and would only change the volume. On top of that, when I purchased a new 2nd generation ipod touch, it would not charge it and error messages kept coming up on the ipod!
I'm happy to report that the Sony is brilliant and has no problems with the new ipod touch! The CD player and radio are also good. Highly recommended!
