there no usb or iphone dock with this option, what do you think of the sony one I posted ?

It said USB connectivity in the text, you're ipod could lie on top of the dvd player.

This looks like an older, less expensive version of that panasonic system;

You could always get the one from your OP & try & buy to speakers to replace the tower speakers.

The DZ280 has no optical ports and basically no connectivity.

Have a look at some reviews here

So i wouldnt touch that one.

I have the DZ260 which is the previous model and its awesome, has hdmi, optical and coaxial ports with awesome sound, although no ipod dock.

That's what I was looking for! - you can get a separate ipod dock, or just use the standard apple one. (if you have it)

It has a audio out, just plug a minijack to audio lead into one of the normal audio inputs.
