Got this stereo as a gift but discovered it was without an aux-in option. ??! Eventually discovered the DockBoss adapter providing an aux-in option for users of this system. So here is the tip for everybody else with this unit (crx-330). The CableJive DockBoss well with systems that passes iPod (iPhone) remote control commands, i.e. not a speaker system but i.e. something more advanced and complicated like a stereo system with a display. Been looking for such a device for years and was about to discard a nice micro stereo system without an aux-in interface when I discovered a review of this product. The micro Hi-Fi system I am using the DockBoss for is Yamaha MCR-330 (specifically the CRX-330 receiver). Nothing would interact with the dock before making this Yamaha receiver prompt the message "Unknown iPod" (unsupported iPod). Now it states iPod (meaning the iPod is correctly stationed in the dock ... however it is just the DockBoss sitting there :o). Even the "iPod unplugged" status comes up in my stereos display when the DockBoss is physically disconnected from the dock. I ordered this unit for BT (BlueTooth) audio (A2DP). Thus, when ordering this unit I was thinking ordering the DockBoss bluetooth unit instead. But as stated in the paragraph above I wanted to extend the Yamaha CRX-330 unit with its missing Aux-in connector. So I opted for keeping a 3.5 mm mini Jack interface with the DockBoss5. Effectively I partitioned the solution into 2 components. The dock interface using the DockBoss5. And a Logich Wireless Speaker Adapter which I tested worked well up to 7 meters + the signal going through 3 walls (i.e. 10 meters totally as BlueTooth is supposed to do). This adapter looks nice. For a less complicated look, i.e. no wires (at all), you could go for the DockBoss bluetooth adapter. Have not tested it - but I would guess it has the same support for the iPod remote controls commands, i.e. would work in my stereo system. In my case I just needed the aux-in option through the dock including the option to connect a wired audio signal.
