SONOS iPod Dock - Richer Sounds - Cheaper than used on eBay. In-store only. £49.95

Found 16th Dec 2013
Found this while I was looking at possibly starting my own Sonos build. Use this dock to integrate your 30pin iPhone/iPod into your sonos system, streaming from your phone etc.

These devices still fetch a pretty penny on eBay:
eBay item number:291035359540
That's currently £64 with 14 bids and over a day to run (at time of writing).

Don't know much else about this gear as I'm not looking to get one but the price is "good" for a sonos item.

According to Richer Sounds they only have a couple left:
London Bridge Qty 1 - Tel: 0333 900 0021
Milton Keynes Qty 1 - Tel: 0333 900 0054

Hope this makes someone's christmas a bit more tuneful!

Shame you can't get them delivered as I am after one :-( great price though

Cracking price, although no longer really necessary since the "Play from this iPhone" functionality was added to the Sonos app.

What he ^^^^ says. Pretty worthless bit of kit now that iPhone and Android are able to play directly from your phone.

Judging by the demand on eBay they must have value to some people. I think maybe the point is that you don't run the battery down on your phone by streaming over wifi? Could be wrong, either way people seem to be prepared to pay more than this for them.

I use one to connect ipod classic to my sonos system

i could be equally wrong on this, but i don't think you stream from the phone, you just send commands and sonos pulls it all in from the network. example- i started playing a track and went out to my car (where wi-fi drops) but the music carried on. happy to be proven wrong.

Allows you to play your favorite music from an iPod® or iPhone® on a Sonos system — all throughout your home. The
DOCK is compatible with*:
• iPod touch (1st, 2nd 3rd, and 4th generation)
• iPod classic
• iPod nano (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th generation)
• iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 3GS
• iPhone 3G, iPhone
• Charges while it’s seated in the DOCK. The DOCK supports 1 Amp charging, the latest specification from Apple®

Still in only those 2 locations but now down to £19.99
I wonder if you can put a bluetooth adapter on it like this and so stream anything from your iphone or ipad over sonos?
The 'play from this iphone' option is only available for music or podcasts on the iphone, this would let you stream any music services on the phone or youtube.
