It has the 30-pin connector so an iPad 2 is no problem. The iPhone 5 will require an adapter.

I don't normally approve of speaker docks, I'm a receiver and speakers kinda guy. However my roommate had one of these and they get surprisingly loud for the size. Also they all seem to come standard with the 3.5mm jack in the back so with a $2 audio cord they'll plug into anything with a headphone jack. Really convenient for a bedroom or kitchen, but certainly not going to replace you're entertainment center.

Woot won't let me have a cool signature

Appreciate the price comparisons, but you gotta lose that disclaimer at the bottom or change it to something like: "These are the best damn prices anywhere on the interweb and I challenge you to find anything better!!!"

other than that, good job on the info!

These ads always talk about how loud the speakers can get, but I want something for my office at work, mostly jazz, so I need decent bass and highs at very low volumes.

Any feedback from current owners? Thanks!

I bought one of these last time. Overall I thought it was just ok. If you have an ipod touch and download the app it helps greatly because it gives you an eq that you can adjust otherwise you are just stuck as to how it is set with just treble /bass adj. The bass is great on it and it does do a very good job of stereo separation for these types of units. It will also go loud but for me it lacked highs and was very mid heavy. I also bought the Onkyo unit that has been on here and it was much better IMO. For the price you are not getting ripped off as it is well built but there are better alternatives if you're sonicly picky. For most however it will do just not for me.

like this:

I have one and it is pretty sweet too...and it has a subwoofer.

too bad you missed out this...maybe it will roll around again?

It will work no prob...but an ipod touch or iphone works a bit better because you can download an app that lets have an eq for the speaker.

Thanks,

However, I know better than to do the challenge thing. That would be the best way to have a huge pile of dung thrown right back at me with all the prices and sites that would be found. lol

but you may be right and the disclaimer may need some work.

FYI - found other info that confirms the iPad2/iPad3 have the same data/charging port.

I just got off the phone with Sony. None of their products are currently compatible with the iPhone 5; however, they will have adapters/software available in the early part of next year - at most you'd pay $20 for an adapter. At least this is what I was told tonight.

Before buying my first one of these I read the comments here and at Amazon. As a classically trained musician, I'm rather finicky when it comes to audio equipment. Having said that, I've been nothing but amazed at the sound from this. Heck...I bought a second one during the Woot-off! The issues some people have had with it migrating on them may have more to do with high volume - I've not had any issues like this whatsoever. I've been very happy with it and the sound.

Turns out this is not quite true. My mom got an iPad 2 in November; I bought her this for Christmas. The iPad 2 has the smaller, 8-pin connector and needs an adapter to work with this. Any recommendations?

edit : Wow, an adapter is 30 extra dollars. That sucks.

She probably has the New iPad (v3). I've had an iPad 2 for almost 2 years and it has the 30 pin connector.
