At $300, the SoundDock is more expensive than competing systems that offer a few more convenience features (such as auxiliary inputs and syncing ability). However, it's currently the best sounding of the "one-piece" speaker systems we've tested and its uncluttered elegance and ease of use make it an appealing offering for those willing to plunk down the change. If you're using the SoundDock in the types of environments for which it's intended--on a desk, or in a bedroom, office, or kitchen--you'll be rewarded with good sound in an eye-catching package.
