Speaker Dock

I've never owned an Apple product before but decided to take the plunge with the new iPod Touch as I needed a new music player anyway and it's fantastic!

I want to buy a speaker dock for it but since I don't have any other product at home would it be worth it to wait until a new speaker dock comes out for the new Apple products or just buy an older dock with an adapter?

Thanks.

I bought a lightning to 30-pin adapter so I could play my new iPod Touch 5g on my iHome. The iPod makes a noise and shows it's connected, but it won't play through the iHome speakers. So far, no one has offered any answers to my question. I did read on the Apple Community boards where a couple of people said this works....which is why I bought the cable...

i dont think the adapter is guaranteed to work on all ipod speakers.

I knew I was taking a chance...It's okay..I might be able to use it somewhere else...and eventually they'll make an iHome that will work too..
