    Anyone try one of these, the Sony DRP-X500IP? -- more to the point, anyone able to compare against Bose Sounddock II?

    I'm looking for a decent speaker dock; it must have actual docking ability (for others in the household) though I'll use an Airport Express for Airplay support if need be. Despite some people's negative opinions of Bose , the Sounddock II is my fallback if something else doesn't present a better price/performance/ease-of-use combination. Ease of use is *critical* on account of other users in the household not being tech savvy.

    Music preferences are wide ranging, but performance in jazz/classical/newage is of greatest importance.

    Thanks.

    I haven't heard the Sony or the Bose, but I have the Beatbox and love it, so that would be my recommendation. Amazon has it for $288 right now.

    Thanks, I did glance at the Beatbox and it seems to be a great unit. I'm sure it's better in several aspects -- however it's size relative to the smally Sony or Bose units would earn it a quick veto from the local Chief Decorating Officer. :D
