So everyone was right (I was just trying to rationalize) but it was crooked. I reached out to seller and originally he wanted me to ship back and he'd send another but I said I'd rather a refund. He ended up allowing me to keep it and refunded me anyways. I definitely won't use it but I get a lightning cable out of it. Looks like I'll be buying a different one.

As far as I am concerned, Sony should update this dock to Lightning:

Awesome

Let us know!

My Braeburn Acoustics dock should be in my mailbox when I get home so I hope to make a quick review. I am now just regretting my purchase considering the "Shenit" is now shipping. It looks really nice too.

Sheesh.. maybe I am in the middle of something and can not write up a review the minute I get it. You need some patience my friend.

I will say, that the overall unit is very nicely built. The dock is actually pretty heavy and does feel substantial. There is some tunneling on the bottom as you know to amplify sound. It works nice!

I installed my Lightning cable very easily. You just place it in, turn and lock it in with a screw. The overall design is well thought out.

There is scotch double sided tape on the bottom of the base which can be taped onto your desk for a secure placement on your desk (which also allows you to take the phone off with one hand)

The only gripe is the way the iPhone sits on the charger. I rather have something that is on a slope as this one sits straight up. I believe you can adjust the angle, so that should remedy the problem.

Overall I would say its a very nice dock, and you do not risk any electrical problems as it uses your existing cable.

Here's something for the budget unconscious...the Billet dock.



http://www.billetdock.com/billet-alu...iphone-silver/

The description is a little wonky as to how the iPhone 5 will fit...they talk about some sort of swappable adaptor, but it's unclear if that's a separate purchase. For $90 I'd hope it comes with.

Here's one for the 4/4S that I would LOVE to see for the 5...

I put up a quick review in this thread and I agree with the other reviewer. It's a pretty good dock, the only complaint is, the phone stands straight up and doesn't curve backwards, which makes accessing the phone while docked not as comfortable as it should be.

They just e-mailed me this though as a solution!

At Braeburn Acoustics we pride ourselves in a user experience that delivers uncompromising value.

We understand that Research and Development doesn't end when the product ships. Because we want to enhance the usability of your Braeburn, we have paid careful attention to some recent feedback regarding the angle at which the iPhone 5 sits when docked.

Because we designed the Braeburn family to be extensible, we are proud to announce that for those customers who want their Braeburn to "lean back", we will happily provide some threaded mounting feet which will allow the front of the unit to sit higher than the back, accomplishing a 3-6 degree angle.


Going forward, units that ship will feature the front mounting feet.

If you are interested in this cost free upgrade, please contact Braeburn customer care at

customercare@braeburnacoustics.com

I like that a lot... I agree. I would want to hear someone's opinion on it first though.

My only issue is that I wouldn't have a clock if my iPhone wasn't docked.

Very cool indeed, but who wants to wait 5+ months.

I am sure between then and now there will be other cool solutions to dock our phones.

Yeah.. I am so close to ordering the Braeburn one. But I live in Aus and no doubt if I order one, a million awesome docks will come out while mine is shipping across the world. If I dont order it then none will come out!

Exactly. There are other kickstarter projects out there for docs as well as some ebay docks that supposedly have gotten around the security chip feature on the lightning cable. I'm sure we'll see a more recognizable company come out with a dock as well. If these guys could get out the docks before the holidays, I'd be in.

nice but this rubber padding looks awkward and cheap in those prototypes imho.
