This dock station works well for my IPod though my existing house stereo system. I'm not sure why there is a remote control as it doesn't work. I'm unsure of what it would be controlling as it not for the IPod. And again, ther were no instruction in the packaging. The price was good.
We wanted to play the iPod through the stereo, and could have bought one for 4X as much that matched our amp and been controllable through the amp remote. By choosing this dock, we have a separate remote for the iPod. So what! We spent less, got the same result, and are very happy. We leave the stereo on all day for the dog when we are working, and this is the easiest on our components. I would recommend this if you just want to put your iPod through your stereo.
