    So I just ordered my iphone 5 and forgot about my bose sound dock... obviously it doesn't have a lightning bolt, but what are the options for it to be connected. It has the 3.5mm input but I was thinking if there is a bluetooth receiver that I can just plug into the dock and connect my iPhone 5 or any other devices through bluetooth. Anybody has the same configuration? How is the sound quality and what are you using? Or any other suggestions? Currently I connect my 4s through bluetooth on the new e-coupe and it sounds not bad. Not perfect, but not bad so I was thinking of doing the same to the sound dock.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Best buy has a BT receiver that you plug into the back of your Sound dock, it's about $30. The sound isn't as good as having the phone or ipod docked in it, but it's really not bad. This way I can pick and choose songs from my phone, whereas with a docked iPod/phone I could only skip tracks with the bose remote.

    Bose has a new SD10 with built in BT.

    You can always go with an airport express and play via Airplay.
