So I'm getting a Pioneer SX-850 receiver, and I'd like this to be my primary "music" system. In other words, new, hi-tech equipment for the home theatre, but nice, classics for the vinyl/audio.


I'm looking to get a simple, and small(ish) CD component, as well as an attachment for my iPod. Based on looks and size, the following Pro-Ject systems would be perfect.

CD Player: box-designs.com / main.php?prod=cdbox&cat=source&lang=en
iPod Box: box-designs.com / main.php?prod=dockboxf&cat=source&lang=en


The reviews of the iPod Box on Amazon were quite terrible, and I can't seem to find the CD Player in the States. My question is if anyone knows of any alternatives to this product that have a similar design? I'm not one to spend all of my money on something, but rather spend a bit more than standard to get something that'll last a while. There has to be more out there...


Thanks in advance!

I can only ask: Why?


You're spending maybe $50 on a receiver, and then you want to spend $200 on a device to connect your iPod? You can connect your iPod with a $5 cable.


For $200, you could buy two Airport Express units, and stream everything from your computer. You wouldn't need a dock or a CD player.

Fair enough, though the receiver was not $50. That would have been one hell of a steal!


This receiver is mostly going to be used for radio and vinyl, but I would like to be able to pop in a CD or play my iPod through it. The reason I like the Pro-Ject iPod adapter is because of the shielding, and the fact that it could be put into a housing (along with the CD player). It would be a typical component system, but smaller. I don't need a multi-disc changer, so I'm looking for something smaller and a bit more stylish.


It is possible I'm focusing on aesthetics over practicality.
