Marantz IS301 – Wireless iPod / iPhone Dock
You’re looking for an iPod dock but you want one from a respected name in Hi-Fi and you also want it to be wireless.
Well, look no further.Â Your search could, quite possibly, end here.
I’m talking bout theÂ MarantzÂ IS301 Wireless iPod Dock – and, as promised, it’s, well, an iPod dock and it’s wireless.
The cradle uses Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR A2DP and Bluetooth AVRCP for the wirelessÂ link with a receiver that links up to your hi-fi via normal audio leads.
It can stream all sorts of media from your iPod or iPhoneÂ and also converts the iThingy to a remote so that youÂ can mess around with theÂ hi-fiâ€™s volume and lots of other settings that can be foundÂ on a Marantz receiver.
The grooviest thingsÂ are that you can have several docks wirelessly hooked up to one receiver andÂ the fact that the docking port is detachable.
So,Â your iPod doesnâ€™t have to be sitting in the dock cradle to stream music to the receiver – you can pick it up and take it into another room, and as long as itâ€™s within Bluetooth range (around 10 metres) it will still stream audio.
This is what happens when Marantz makes a dock 🙂
