View Full Version : Looking for a music dock for my Zune

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good music dock for the Zune? I'm think of something like this, (http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/articles.php?action=expand,11757) but for the zune (of course). I'm not sold on this paticular design, but more like the size and simple feature set.

What does everyone else use? Any suggestions?

Only one I've seen so far (though I haven't looked) is the Altec Lancing M604 (http://www.alteclansing.com/product_details.asp?pID=M604). It's on Amazon for $125.95 (http://www.amazon.com/Altec-Lansing-M604-Powered-Speaker/dp/B000JQLPZE) and of course it's on eBay already too.

I like the concept of a speaker dock, but I just don't personally have a use for one. At home I can play the songs through my PC, or stream them to my 360 and I use the Zune when I'm walking or travelling. My "office" is an airline flight deck, and I'm fairly certain setting up a speaker dock and cranking music and podcasts during flight would be frowned upon! :D

That's pretty nice, but it's a lot more money than I want to spend. :(

Yeah, I can play the music on my PC, but I've got the zune in an attempt to offload media playback to another device. I don't have to worry if I'm rebooting my PC, or if I'm going to the cottage for a week and I don't bring my laptop with me. I can take the music dock out to the beach and the whole gang can enjoy tunes.

Ok, found another one: the DLO HomeDock (http://www.dlo.com/Products/hd_zune_Prod.tpl?command=showpage&cart=) for $99 MSRP, so I'm guessing you can get it for less online. Haven't done an online pricecheck though. This is just a dock though, you'll need your own speakers.

I just saw a few of the M604's from my previous post on Amazon for $110 new so their prices are dropping, and some used ones starting at $99.

Also on Amazon, the INSTEN folding speakers (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FDTNZK?tag=zunemax-20&camp=15309&creative=331469&linkCode=st1&creativeASIN=B000FDTNZK&adid=1EGQEE7CRPJHS1505J4J&) (basically a dock?) that fits both iPod and Zune and the thing is dirt cheap. One of the reviews said it was better than laptop speakers, but I don't know if it would be good enough to play at the beach.
