  • Micro Hifi System

    Ok.. I need a present for the missus and decided on a hifi system, probably a micro so it doesnt take up too much space. I also ordered an ipod nano to go with it so I was wondering whether anyone had any info or suggestions on a good system with good ipod integration? This can be in the form of a dock OR if need be some sort of AUX IN that I can use.

    Saw this one: Yamaha MCR-E810G


    Looks bloody sweet... BIT pricey, but if nothing else stands out then it may be an option. Plus i like Yamaha stuff. (Requires dock option +$150, but it also charges.. so acceptable to me.)

    Let me know if you have any info.

      The present is for allowing me to kick her out after Christmas ;P

      ha ha j/k ... no really ... its her birthday in a week or so ... BIG 3 0 ... Have to make a big deal out of it, yet not a BIG deal out of it, if you know what i mean ... (Hence why I am choosing a gift a whole week and a half ahead of time and not the day before )

              When you say iPod integration, do you just want to be able to have the iPod play through the stereo? Or actually control the iPod through it?

              If you just want it to play, you would just need the stereo to have an auxiliary channel and then a lead that goesfrom your 3.5mm jack into 2 x RCA plugs like this


              They are pretty cheap, and will mean you can plug anything in.

                  Yep, this is the preference. Quite a few little systems are coming with docks or USB ports ... just wondered if anyone had one or works with them.

                  I've used the RCA -> 3.5 Jack on my PC before (when I only had the 3.5 jack on the sound card) and it does work very well. This will be a last resort thing tho at this stage... ie. If I find a system thats great quality for sound, build, features, but doesn't cater to the ipod specifically.

                  If the area is well organised, then there shouldn't be a problem having it charging (in stock dock or cable) & hooked up to the stereo at the same time It all just needs to be within cable distance of each other...

                      Very Noice ... thanks. Will have a look tomorrow at some systems... a built in dock will be more friendly for the missus, but who knows .. i might be able to get a better spec system without a dock, then hook up some accessories like the remote control, powerblock and some cables... Ghetto style ipod integration
