You have to like the Bose sound, which isn't for everyone. The SoundDock, like most of their other products, has no midrange. Everything also sounds "echo-ey." If you haven't heard the Bose sound, audition the SoundDock at an Apple Store near you.

I have the SoundDock, the onStage and the old inMotions. The onStage has the most accurate sound, but lacks bass and doesn't have quite the power of the Bose.

Currency rage

Things have been pretty good in recent months, with companies actually taking notice of currency devaluations, but the SoundDock price has me once again gnashing my teeth.

US price $299 + tax, let's say 5% = $261.45
UK price ??249 (incl. tax) = $430!!!

GGGGGGGGGGGggggaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ahem.

I could import one, I've got a spare stepdown transformer to convert our 240V to 110V, but due to it's weight, I'd be stiffed for shipping, then hit with import duty and the final whammy, sales tax.

weep.

Totally agree, it's outrageous for UK customers.

How they can justify such a price difference is beyond me.

Bose is a marketing company. Those Acoustimass speakers you pay $2000/set for? The drivers can be bought online for $4 each. $150 TriPort headphones? Better ones can be had for $50.

I have a nissan 350z and the only thing I don't like is the very disappointing Bose system. It lacks bass and the midrange is too high.

Yeah, Bose + Apple iPod = Charge whatever the **** you want for it. I like Bose and all, but not THAT much. the inMotion sounded good for me, for what I would do with it. If I were "important" where I would and had my very own cubicle, I would want something like this. In that application, the overal volume would not be important because it would have to be low anyway, but still be clear.

Okay okay, we get it. Bose = Better Off blah blah blah. Enough already. No need to use the same acronyms a million times.

No kidding. I personally love Bose products. Oh, sure, you audiophiles all say the same thing. "Bose is terrible! The sound isn't realistic! Go buy expensive Grados!" But I like the Bose sound. It's rich, full, and warm, with plenty of bass. I would buy the Sound dock if I had the money. Same with the Triports, and if I used cans more.

Does an import into the UK really need a stepdown transformer? Surely a 2-pin to 3-pin plug converter is enough?
