Manufacturer's Description

With Onkyo’s latest Dock for the iPod, it’s now easy to incorporate the iPhone into your home entertainment system. The UP-A1 helps to expand the possibilities for enjoying your iPhone or iPod’s music, movies, TV shows, music videos, and video podcasts.

It draws a steady power supply from your compatible Onkyo AV receiver* via the same convenient cable that delivers video and audio signals to the receiver. The UP-A1 also offers handy features found on previous Onkyo docks:recharging capability; onscreen display for content navigation and selection**; and remote operability via your A/V receiver’s remote controller.

To bring proven Onkyo sound quality and the potential of big-screen video playback to your iPhone or iPod, look no further than the UP-A1.

*Compatible models include Onkyo’s 2009 range of A/V receivers (i.e. TX-SR507 and higher). (iPhone not included)

  • In Extended Mode, the UP-A1 incorporates an onscreen display (OSD) function that enables you to easily navigate and select video and audio content viewed on a connected display. Using this mode, you can browse your iPhone or iPod content using the keys on your A/V receiver’s remote controller.

Note: Extended Mode is available only on compatible A/V receivers. TX-SR607 and lower models feature only Standard Mode (i.e. video signal pass-through).

Please note that 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation iPod models are not supported. Updating iPhone/iPod software is advised before using the UP-A1.
