We have just purchased a new 4th generation 32gb ipod and would like advise on what is the best docking system to use.

I was thinking of buying a Fatman Carbon unit but i believe some of the units do not accept the 4th genertion ipod.

Alternatively i could either  buy a dock to link it to my existing Teac CR-H225 unit which  has a USB  connection or to my Yamaha AV receiver. 

Any help would be very welcome

What's your budget? If I was looking for a dock system and had serious moola at hand I'd be looking at the new B&W Zeppelin Air no question.

In which case,  its smaller sibling -  the Zeppelin Mini - is still our favourite at that price.

BUT. the AirWired wireless iPod add-on for the latest Yamaha receivers is excellent, too. Which Yamaha model do you have?

I have a Pure i20 iPod DAC dock and it is superb, I have been using it with an iPod Nano plus my daughters 3G iPod Touch though have just bought a 4G 32GB Touch myself.


I wouldnt spend £300 on a self contained dock, I would either by a good amp and speakers and a Pure i20 or an i20 alone to use with you existing system.


Search on here, another user has posted a glowing review of the i20, despite costing only £75 it is truly fantastic.
