This iPod sounddock from Bose is brilliant. The sound it produces is absolutely astonishing. My parents have a Bose Wave CD player, and the sounddock is every bit as good as the Wave CD player. The sounddock looks good in either white or black, with my sister and I both having one in alternating colours. The quality of the sound is unbelievable, with the clarity and bass in perfect balance whether the music is playing softly in the background or blasting out at full volume. There are a couple of criticisms I have, and these are that when the volume is turned up to the very max (which you will very seldom have to do) the sound does start to get a tad distorted, and also that the remote control that comes with the sounddock does not enable you to scroll through the artists/select playlists etc., meaning that you have to make sure there is a playlist on with songs you like. Having said that, I very quickly got used to these, and are only minor niggles. I have not let these deter me from enjoying my Bose Sounddock to the extreme, and neither should you. A highly reccomended buy, and definitely worth the extre money over Apple's own version.
P.S. For best deals, buy from Bose direct, or try eBay if you dare.. =D
