Compatible with Yamaha's optional YDS-12 wired, and YID-W10 wireless docks, the new receivers and integrated amplifier can deliver sound from iPods and iPhones by leveraging the docks' independent power supplies, resulting in a reportedly signal-to-noise ration. The units also utilize a balanced system to receive the signal from the iPod/iPhone. In addition, the receivers feature compatibility with Yamaha's YBA-10 Bluetooth wireless audio receiver, providing more audio input flexibility.
