Summary: I'd purchased a Sony RDP-X80iP docking station brand new for £149.99 as a gift for someone & saw the benefits of having a docking station. In an effort to go one better, I thought I'd get a Bose for myself. Afterall, Bose is a brand name that you can trust and there were some really good reviews on here, so I thought it would be £259.00 well spent.
Summary: Firstly the actual sound from such a small device is excellent, a bit bass heavy but this is sorted out with an equaliser. Feels very solid and i found a Bluetooth adapter for mine so i can use bluetooth if i ever wanted to. The major let down for this device is that it hisses when the ipod is docked at no music sound level, or at low levels. I thought it maybe something to do with my iphone, so i used a 3.5 jack from my laptop into the back and it still hissed.
