    Best receiver for iPod connection?

    What's the best receiver for iPod connection? All my speakers are stock so I don't need a lot of features, main thing is just real fast iPod control, no lag.

    I dont really like it, I work at best buy and everyone thinks its so "pimp"

    I think every unit needs to play CD's the X001 doesnt.

    yeah I was thinking of going by BB and seeing if they have one on display
    what don't you like about it other than the lack of CD playing?

    I personally don't like the hugs *** knob i the middle of the unit. Only half of the face is detachable, the screen stays put. Kind of pointless if you ask me.

    Re: Best receiver for iPod connection?

    For ipod use, go with alpine. Although I have no personal experience with alpine, I have seen other's on youtube, and have read about it and I promise it will be much nicer.

    I have the pioneer 5900IB and although the ipod is great, because it charges, the scrolling and finding artists is horrible. I have over 3000 songs, and many artists and it takes forever to scroll through and find what i want. For that reason I find myself making playlists of my favorite bands just so that I have less to scroll through. That *****. Also, it does not remember the band you were in, so say you scroll to the middle of the artists, 2 mins down. and you pick a song, then you want to turn it up. You exit the screen and turn it up, then want to go to a different artist by that one...you have to go through all of them again to get there.

    soo...Go with alpine!
