I don't get the point of an expensive dock like this with the stereo speakers separated by perhaps 15 centimeters.

I'm sure it sounds quite a bit better than cheaper units, but sound quality is so limited by the form factor, why spend so much? It would make some sense to make the stereo speakers easily detachable so they could separated further, which would add almost nothing to the cost of the unit.

Their compactness is their fundamental selling point. That is the sole reason to spend £400 on a dock rather than the same money on large speakers and a separate bass.

The only dock we've found to have truly impressive sound separation for its size is the Arcam rCube where its speakers are physically angled at 45 degrees (from a head on perspective). This creates a tremendous room filling sound, but has proved a sales problem for Arcam as people stand in front of it for demos in shops and the sound bypasses them and disappears in a large store.

Compare this to a product which blasts out straight ahead and the latter wins the store experience every time... yet falls down in the home.

It's a hard one to juggle.

It does not have an aux in 3.5mm jack because it is an "all digital" design.

They do have a AP version of this device. Please do a review on it too, and how the AP compares to the rivals.

Seriously has a lot of blurtooth connectivity issues. It used to drip for a sec after every 5 -6 minutes. I was lucky to be able to returned it back.

Stay away from this product. I also brought this product reading ALL THE GREAT REVIEWS.
