If a unit is Bluetooth capable, it typically can allow you to connect to your Bluetooth cell phone to make and receive calls. Others can access your phone and address book too via Bluetooth. Other Bluetooth capable units offer even more services, such as live traffic information and map upgrades.

iPod Dockable
This designates if an iPod can be docked the particular device. This feature applies it to home DVD/Blu-ay players, iPod accessories, alarm clocks, and more.

Some players include a dock or have one built-in, while others require you to purchase it separately.

Expandability

Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

Great sound!

October 21, 2010

I bought as a gift for my daughter. She loves the great sound in a compact and portable package. It's a great value particularly when compared to Bose or similar.

KickerZK500

February 9, 2009

I finally found a docking station for my zune and knowing the kicker brand, decided to spend the money on this system. I have been very happy with this unit. The sound is great, it can rock the kitchen, the whole house, even the back yard and beyond. It's portable enough to move around the house or outdoors (not weather proof), but not a size you'd carry to the beach.
I also have my xm radio plugged in and can easily switch between it and the zune.
No regrets on buying this system!

The Kickerzk500 is a excellent product beats any bose boxes hands down. Very full base response and crisp highs. The remote has some issues but all in all it is an excellent docking station with great sound.
