NEWS: NAD adds an iPod dock to its range

NAD has added an iPod dock to its range, enabling users of the Apple portable players to enjoy music and video through their NAD systems.

The £70 IPD-1 is finished in black and sliver, with a weighted base and rubber foot for stability, charges the iPod when docked, and allows remote control of the player when used with some of NAD's latest equipment.

The dock has gold-plated audio outputs and an S-video connection, which can be used in conjunction with fifth generation iPods with video, and gives both remote control and video display of the player's menus when used with NAD components having a special IPD-1 Dock Port.

At the moment these include the T785, T775 and T765 receivers, and the T175 processor, but NAD says it's planning to include this port on more models in the future.

The dock comes complete with hook-up cables and a charging module with interchangeable adapter plugs for worldwide mains sockets. The IPD-1 is available now.
