Really struggling to make an informed choice of iPod dock/speakers....Help!!!
I'm looking to buy a speaker dock for my iPod but my shortlist is getting longer and longer. My problem is, I can't seem to find many docks in my local shops and so I can't hear them.
I started with a shortlist of 2:
the new Bose Sound dock portable
the bose wave radio with iPod dock kit
I like the portability of the sound dock but I'm guessing the sound from the wave will be better, trouble is unless I go to Regent Street in London, I can't hear them without buying them on trial for 30 days.
As if I wasn't struggling enough with this decision, a little more research has thrown up a few more for the shortlist:
Tannoy i30 (which I'm hoping to hear tomorrow at John Lewis)
Klipsch iGroove speaker dock
Harman Kardon Go & Play
and the list is still growing!
So I guess my questions are, how and where can I hear these things and in the opinion of the users of this forum, which docks are the best. I want something that is going to be loud enough to be taken into the garden for barbecues/parties, not too big and ugly and that is going to sound worthy of the money I will be spending (upto £400 but preferably nearer £300). Any help is greatly appreciated.
