    Was at a Bose outlet store this afternoon. Played tunes with my 3rd generation iPod Touch on both the SoundDock Portable Digital Music System and the Sound Dock Series II. That being said, there were two comments in the SoundDock Series II section that are making me think twice about purchasing this. (1) JS from Hunstville said recharging feature does not work with the iTouch. Maybe that's why this is not listed as compatible. (2) MS from Calgary mentioned a problem with the mounting port. We found that to be true when trying it out in the store but thought at that time that since we were unfamiliar with it that we weren't pushing it on firmly enough.

  • In addition the iPod touch Gen I or II will DEFIANTLY charge in the SoundDock II, Protable and the SoundDock 10. I'm told that only the very first 'original' Sounddock (now like 5 years old) will not charge the newer iPod/ iPhones and that is due to apple now changing to USB charging rather than the fire wire pin previous models used. Even that problem has been rectified now though and any new Sounddock original bought should also charge ( you can pick up the ones that dont charge the latest iPods even cheaper though )
