    I am trying to find a good sound dock for my iPhone 4 that also has a FM radio. I bought the Sony RDP-XF100iP this weekend and am not overly impressed, given the cost. It is bass-heavy with little option to adjust the top-end ranges ( cymbals, etc ) and radio reception seems a bit shaky. All of that would be fine for a sub-$100 unit, but this is pushing $200.

    Can anyone recommend a good option?

    thanks in advance!

    I don't have experience with FM radio docks. But I have read very good reviews about iHome docks that include FM radios.

    I have the Bose Sound Dock Portable. No radio on it, BUT THERE's AN APP FOR THAT!

    The Bose Sound dock 2 & TuneIn Radio app has been a winning combo for me.

    I thought about the Bose/app combo, but some of the stations I like to listen to don't stream online... which means the app route won't work. <sigh>
