Marantz PM6005 best way to connect ipod

Hi all,

I'm seriously considering this over the Yamaha AS500, because it has the digital audio in and a great DAC, it's not quite as bulky and I'm more convinced by the Marantz reviews that I've researched.

I want to be able to plug in my ipod classic 160GB - in a permanent way. I.e. leaving it in a docking station (to keep it charged, and hooked up to one of the Marantz inputs. What's the best way I can do this..?

Thank you.

P.S, with the digital in, it has a coaxial and optical input. Does that mean I could connect say a cd player into one and a media player into the other, and it'll play which ever one is choosen? I know it sounds like a silly question, but just wanna be sure..
