Summary: I ordered the Bose SoundDock as it was Bose and a good deal. The idea of being able to play my iPod (which I was yet to buy) all appealed. After ordering it I found out that while there is a Lightning to 30 pin adaptor, that the adaptors do not support iPod audio mode. My new iPod had the new lightning adaptor so would not work with this SoundDock. So nothing wrong with the SoundDock itself, jut you need the older 30 pin iPod/iPhone to be able to use it.
Summary: I do not think the sound dock is as good as the original. I was even more disappointed with the condition i received it in from the supplier. I did try to send it back, but was refused, the sound dock was allegedly 'NEW' and clearly wasn't, the box it came in was bashed and water damaged and to top it all it came with no remote control. All i was offered was £11 towards a new one, from the supplier, which was never fulfilled.
