Looking at the Aldi site they're also selling wireless headphones on Thursday too, are Tevion a decent make or not?

It's actually better than the original Bose SoundDock in that it supports an AUX line-in. The sound is punchy and clear and whilst it wouldn't fill a concert hall, it's more than enough for most homes.



As good or better than the Klipsch iGroove? Have you heard that?

Looks very similar to the £65 JBL model and that's quite poor.

Tevion is Aldi's own brand and has the usual 3y warranty and ease of return.

been looking for one of these but can anyone tell me if it will work with the Iphone 8gb 3g?
Thanks

I take it this can't run from batteries? I want something for camping too.

I have a Klipsch dock for my iphone, it was £99 for carphonewarehouse, although I had a free voucher :thumbsup: I must say its pretty darn good voted hot from me!!

Except for the sound !!!!!!!!!!!!

A mini does everything a ferarri does .... well nearly :whistling:

This may not charge the new iPhone 3g and probably all new iPods/iTouch as they have done away with the 12v firewire charging that most of these things use.

Looks good so i have ordered one delivery stating 6th to 12th august but states in stock see in the us its $149 but clearence item now with $100 discount so you could pick this up their for £25 voted hot

The Bose is widely thought of as being only average with sound. There's a reason why people say Bose is little more than advertising. The Klipsch iGrove is pretty much thought better than the sounddock by audiophiles, although not sure where the Athena lands. Unfortunately anybody getting the sounddock and assuming audiophile standard sound is fairly misled.

"No highs, no lows, must be bose".

Comparing the Bose sounddock to a Ferrari is a bit far off the mark, sadly.

There's this one also which i've got which is decent (i'm no audiophile mind!) and its gone up from £17.99 (which i paid) to £24.99

Thanks. Ordered and voted hot, hopefully not prematurely.

I bought one of these when £49.99. Very good for the price, accepts my 30gb ipod classic and 2 gb nano. The 30gb is much louder than the nano. Good clear sound with decent volume, I would recommend.

so does it work with the original iphone? sorry to miss the point but looking for a docking station for the phone?

Looks good to me - ordered. Thanks to OP. Heat added.

iPhones at least still charge through the firewire connection, they just don't pass the data anymore.

Gets a really good review ]here

I've ordered one, seems a bargain for the price.

If its 1/2 has good as Klipsch iGroove then its a bargain.

Really ?

I thought they were both overpriced, rough round the edges and raved about by enthusiasts ...

The Athena is definately in the Mini, if not Lada catagory though ... the soundstage is non existant and it cannot handle complex music without distortion.

Maybe comparing the Athena as a Lada and the Bose as a BMW 318 would be closer to the mark though

Are you old enough to remember Lada's ? Are they still around ?

Came as standard with a heated rear window to keep your hands warm while pushing it in the winter.

Bose are not really known for good sound quality, more for clever marketing and branding.

cheers for the post I have gone for it, if it doesn't work with my iPhone then I have a older iPod it should work with.
I don't expect it to be as good as the Bose dock but for 40 quid it's worth a go for some decent sounds in the kitchen.
Cheers

Heat and Rep added. Excellent find.

If iphone connections are the same as ipod then yes it will work

Looks good, nice price!

willocks;2624521

Except it 's unlikely to work on the iPhone 3G because of the lack of Firewaire charging support (see above link). Also, with all iPhones, you'll probably get lots of interference from the phone's radio unless you enable Airplane mode. That can be a bit inconvenient as nobody can ring or text you while your iPhone is docked.

If anyone tries this with an iPhone 3g please could they post back with what works and what doesn't work?

Will this work with a sony mp3 player?

I had a reply from the Athena customer service department saying it "should" work with the first gen iPhone, but having tried my iPhone on every single iPod dock in Currys/Comet etc and not had it work on a single one I'm not so sure! It just says this device is not compatable on the iPhone screen.

It may work naked - I use my Touch in devices without any dock insert. No problems.

I can comfirm that neither this or the iGroove will function correctly with the iPhone 3G. They will not charge and also need airplane mode on to avoid horrible interference. Music will play, but with those constraints.

Back to my B&W Zeppelin

Pork, don't be fooled by that notification. The "Apple Certified" product stamp is as yet a rarity and seems to amount to "have manufacturer X paid us..." even my £400 Zep tells me that message, yet works perfectly and fades up/down and pauses during calls.

If it charges, docks and doesn't deafen you with interference it will be fine. I take two mobiles, dock my iPhone and have it play music, then call it from the second phone to establish it's ability.

Thanks Hoff;-)

Can anyone confirm the iphone 3g will not charge and see by himself?

Not quite sure what you mean, but as I said - it doesn't work, period.
