GREAT sound, POOR wi-fi - must sync with same equipment every time, and fades out when multiple devices nearby

Summary: I hate that I have to give 3 stars because the sound is really great, but this is a lot more complicated to use than it should be for the price. I constantly have to re-sync the machine with my laptop or iPhone. This wouldn't even be a major deal if it didn't take so long to do. My biggest problem with the device is that when we have people over and try playing the music on wi-fi it either fades in and out or stops completely once there are more than a few cell phones in...
Summary: As most people know, Bose has its own sound and this dock is no different. Bose is great at squeezing decent quality sound out of a small and nicely designed package. This dock is definitely quite powerful and can be cranked up without distortion. As with most speaker docks, it needs to be situated near a wall for greatest effect - putting it on an open table or outside will make the sound seem weak. Place it correctly and it sounds 10x better.
Summary: I used the Original Sounddock and it died after 2.5 years. The fact I like in Sounddock is at a low volume it balances all sounds (vocal, treble and Bass) very well compared to other products. Good for bedroom/office room usage. For family room, definitely there are other options at less than half the price. Anyway, I went for Sounddock again and this time I went for Sounddock 10 for only one reason - bluetooth. Wrong decision.
Bose is taking you to the cleaners with this product!

Summary: First of all for the amount of money I spent on the Sounddock 10, I believe that bluetooth capability should have been built in. Now I bought this product and in order to use it I had to take out the dock and put this bluetooth thing instead, so I lost the ability to have my iPod touch sit inside the Sounddock 10 and charge. Now there was some loss in volume when I used this dock but the Sounddock 10 is still plenty loud.
