I have to disagree a little with your assessment right now that there is nothing on the market to touch the i-deck 200. The Audyssey South of Market dock is available for £250 in Ireland (not sure about UK) which I think would give some pretty stiff competition to this dock.
@Shaggy, I don't believe that dock is available in England right now, but I shall do my best to track it down. Very little information is provided on the website itself to be able to make a judgement (have you heard the two side by side?). That said in weighing just 2.3Kg it would be a remarkable achievement if it competes with docks that are twice its size and weight.
@Gordon394 meant to say very interesting review of the i-deck. Audyssey dock is available on amazon uk and apple uk stores (@ £300 though!). The Audyssey weighs 4.1Kg (http://www.audyssey.com/produc..., just under the i-deck 200. I haven't heard them side by side but would be great if you could do a comparison of them.
You asked, here it is! A review of the Audyssey South of Market dock and compared to all rivals including the i-deck 200 :)http://www.trustedreviews.com/...
Interesting review, but it should be noted that whilst the Audyssey dock is still around the £250 mark on Amazon, the iDeck 200 is now down to £149 which I'd imagine now settles the question of which is the one to go for.
It also raises the questions of whether the iDeck 200 was a £400 product reduced to £250, was an overpriced £250 product reduced to it's real worth, or an overpriced £400 product reduced to £150, or a £250 product reduced to a bargain price of £150, or an over priced £250 product reduced to it's real value of £150!
While anyone else tries figuring this out, I'm off to order one, or maybe an iDeck 100 now at £80?
