    I read some of the reviews and was not sure if it would work for my 160GB iPod Classic, but it worked fine. In the instruction booklet it says if the supplied adapters do not work, then you can go to the apple stie and get it. Also, the apple site shows all the models that this device is compatible with, which is the same that B&H posted. So, you can check before purchasing to see if it is compatible (Apple or B&H).

    The device works great (exactly as I expected based on the product description). The only complaint I have is the design of the remote. It is simple and small (which I like), but very slick/sleek, so it can easily slip out of your hands. Other than that, awesome!

    Works the same as ever, but includes a very limited set of adapters, only for current ipod models. Fortunately, they haven't gratuitously changed the design, and the older adapters still fit. At least they throw in the remote. Works with older white remote as well.

    Also, works perfectly with latest iPod nano (2012), although this is not documented anywhere. No adapter for that either, just let the little guy stand on the connector.

                The Universal Dock is a must have product for each Iphone / ipod owner. It allow you to listen your music and skip tracks using the remote control. The built quility is great as usual.

                    I listen to my I Pod through my stereo and charge it at the same time. The remote does not work the menu, but once you have that set you can pause the music or go to the next song using the remote.

                    Comments about Apple Universal Dock:

                    I got the universal dock as a gift for my mother. I was looking for a dock that was compatible with her iphone 3G and also newer models of iphones and ipods. This product does all of that. She's able to hook it up to her computer and wall outlet and control her iphone from across the room with the remote.

                    Delivered on time. Easy to install and operate. Works seamlessly with my vintage hi fidelity component sound system as well as my new plasma TV. The wireless remote is pure cool Apple. I have no reservations in recommending this product and purchase via B&H.

                          Quite skeptic at first but once I connected my Bose portable speakers on, cool! I am pleased with how the remote works even when not pointed directly to it's sensor! Nice looking remote too.
