Yamaha Design, Meet Apple DesignEverybody knows Apple has set the bar extremely high with their minimalist yet edgy designs. Well, Yamaha has taken notice and implemented similar features into the PDX-30: rounded edges, premium fabrics and metals, simple layout, minimal buttons, and a focus on user-friendly experience. In short, the Yamaha PDX-30 speaker dock plays your iPod/iPhone based music with minimal hassle and maximum visual appeal.

Take (Remote) Control of Your MusicThe PDX-30 comes with an infrared remote control so you can adjust volume, skip tracks and make other adjustments without having to undock your player or physically interact with the speaker dock. The buttons and their functions are mapped to your iPod so you can start enjoying your music without having to spend hours reading a users manual. But if you're close to the unit you can still adjust volume using the up/down buttons, and LEDs let you know if your iPod/iPhone is connected and charging.
