For the past (nearly) a year, I've been perfectly happy with my Alpine iDA-x300 receiver. It is an all-digital receiver with no CD option (good riddance) that fully supports my iPod touch first gen. Well, recently there has been a change of technology. Yesterday, I picked up an iPhone. You'd think that the iPhone would work properly with my head unit; well you'd be right - sort of. It plays and functions just like my iPod Touch, only it doesn't charge my phone! My iPod Touch charged just fine AND played fine. This isn't fair! I read around and found that it has something to do with Apple doing-away with the FireWire charging portion of their connector, and as a result, my receive will not charge iPod Touch 2nd gen and iPhone 3G models (works OK with original iPhone though). My question is, who know of a good receiver that is iPhone ready and will charge AND play at the same time, with the ability to search for music while still playing. If mine would charge my iPhone, then it would be perfect, but it just doesn't. What annoys me is that Alpine released new models (iDA-x303 and iDA-x305) that are iPhone ready, but I don't want to blow another $200 on a receiver. It seems I have no choice, but the asking prices for the x305 are just way too high for my tastes, and personally dislike the blue lighting. A major reason I bought my x300 was that it was the ONLY receiver that I like the looks of AND had red lighting to match my interior lighting. It appears there aren't any more receivers that fit the bill of full iPhone support and red lighting. But, does anyone know of something that comes close?
