Just wondering if it is posible to use an ipod directly with the ax5i via the firewire connection it has. Also, does the ax5i come in gold? I thought it was just silver until I downloaded the manual and there was a 'G' and an 'S' model, yet i've only ever seen silver advertised. I'd like it in gold coz I have a gold Den dvd2800ii. Ok,just one more thing,as u probably of guessed, i'm thinking of buying an ax5. Would the Mordaunt Short THX select package team up well with it. Thanks in advance for any advice!!!!
