    I have that fancy Ihome dock one you know the one with the plexiglass with the woofer and tweets on it.

    Pros - To me its one of the best sounding night stand speaker dock under $300 bucks. Awesome chic looks for your plushed out room.

    Cons - Sorry but with this one you have to go caseless with it. Speaker system only, no clock or any other frilly stuff.

    I think most docks are unfortunately designed for caseless ipods/iphones. But there are some dock extenders & cables you can get so you don't need to take of your case. Here are some that I've come across fairly often that might solve your problem.

    iJet iExtend

    Send Station Dock Extender Review

    cable extender

    As with anything each have pros & cons, so it really comes down to what you want. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the cable extenders for docking stereos, since I like my ipod in my docking stereo, not next to it, but it might be just what you're looking for.

    There are also a ton more products like theses out there. Check out the results from a quick Google Shopping search

    Best iPhone and iPod Extender

    Hey there - thanks for the info. I purchased 2!

    a dockStubz (which has the mini usb on the side) and the DockExtender Boost which is the only one available that works with the iPhone 4 Bumper.

    GadgetBoost.com had them both which was cool. I also found 1 other option with multiple colors at iExtendIt. I think I am going to try a gray one - would match both my dock and my case. :cool:

    Google Shopping has a good list of extenders if you want to check it out.

    Best iPhone 4 Speaker/Dock?

    Creative ZiiSound D5—a Bluetooth-based iPhone/iPod dock that offers quality wireless streaming (that exceeds expectations for Bluetooth) and lets you walk around with your iPhone 4 while a connected dongle sends your music to the speaker. The only cable is for power.

    Figured I'd resurrect this thread as I'm in the search for a good dock.

    I've owned one of the original JBL On Stages (first pic below) for about 5 years now and I loved the sound quality and how powerful it got for such a small device but my iPhone is unable to charge in it and it doesn't accept dock inserts. About a week ago I received the JBL On Stage Micro iii (second pic below) as a gift which works fine for docking and using inserts, but the sound quality was just terrible and it couldn't get all that loud without distorting the audio, so I returned it.

    I'm wondering if anybody is using a good speaker dock that can sync/charge the iPhone 4, accepts dock inserts (I have a case that uses them) and has good sound quality and is powerful at the same time. I'm looking at a budget of about $150-200, but if something isn't outrageously more I'd consider it.
