Need to get an iPod dock for someone. Have seen the Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere v2 for £73 on Amazon. Any other options? £100 odd would be limit.

Re: iPod Dock For Under "100

The Logitech mm50 is superb for what it is. I also have Logitech PC speakers which again are very good for the money. So I would suggest that the Anywhere, which is well rated by What Hifi, would be a good buy.

I would also check out the Klipsch range.

Also check out JBL & Philips. I have the Philips AJ300D clock radio / ipod dock. Quite happy with the sound.

Still haven't heard better for the money than the Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere 2- especially as it can also be used battery-powered (and comes with rechargeable battery, carry case and multiple plug adapters).  


That Amazon deal is a cracker at£73 - but these deals can come and go; I reckon Amazon reacts to other deals then puts price back up when those rival promotions end.

RE: iPod Dock For Under £100

I'm looking around for a portable dock system to use in the bedroom of our cottage but that I can also take away when travelling abroad (so battery power & size are both issues).

 

I though my search was over when I read Claire's comments on the Logitech PureFi Anywhere II BUT there seems to be an awful lot of faulty units reported on Amazon.

 

Does anyone have first-hand experience to offer or suggestions for alternatives? As this is by no means our main system we don't want to spend a fortune ... £100 tops.

Hi harveymt.

Check out the Conran Audio dock on Play.com. £60 for black, £70 for white. RRP was £250!!

Not only a dock but also has Bluetooth connectivity. I bought one for my Wife and I'm pleasantly surprised by how good it sounds.

It's mains power only though if that's of any concern.

I would've hoped the OP would have been sorted in the intervening 3 years!  Smile
