Great deal. Almost wish that I had some Apple products!

  It has an AUX in jack, so you can use a M/M 1/8" cable to plug into in from the headphone jack of ANY device.

"With dual bass-reflex speakers, the sound you here will be music to your ears."
Uhh, duh?
That would be the point, no?

  Unless you are a dedicated "talk radio" listener. In that case, it might be a big distraction.
Wait, that's "you here"...no telling what this means (you no)?

look great!

  Sure, it'll work.. But I'm guessing you'll be left with an ugly cable running to your device that sitting somewhere along side the speaker rather than the neat cradle set-up shown in the picture.
Wish it had bluetooth instead - one less cable

Okay, now you have a cable running to the bluetooth receiver. Actually two cables, audio and power/charging. And another gadget floating around. And spending another $10. Speaking of which, minimum shipping charge is $9-10. Not that this isn't still a very good price if this item is what you're looking for, but many people will have no particular use. They probably already have a cheaper alarm clock dock with admittedly lower audio quality and they probably also have an even better-sounding, more expensive full blown audio receiver. For $58 this has pretty limited real-world functionality. One would indeed expect built-in bluetooth and probably a clock radio. Very good price though for this item, though.

You don't understand how that bluetooth device works. You simply plug into the 30 pin dock and that's it. It's an amazingly elegant solution

  I would assume so, as it appears you can only charge this bluetooth device via USB with the cable provided.  All my iPod generiations charge fine via the yamaha dock.

Got the Bluetooth adapter for use with this dock.   The 30-pin does charge the device.  However it keep shutting off when you put the Bluetooth device on the dock.
If you turn the Bluetooth device on, and use the 3.5mm plug to plug it into the back of the Yamaha Dock, everything works great just like it is supposed to.
Gonna play if it some more.  This works, but would rather it stayed on all the time charging on the 30-pin and playing via the 30-pin.
