Sony, $169. sony.com.au ★★★ In au­dio prod­ucts, usu­ally we go look­ing for the box with the most features but not ev­ery­one wants all the bells and whis­tles. Some peo­ple might be dis­ap­pointed in this mem­ber of Sony’s range of iPod docks. It’s com­pat­i­ble with models up to the iPhone 4S but if you have the iPhone 5, you’ll need to buy an adap­tor for your Light­ning con­nec­tor. You can con­nect a iPhone 5 to the dock us­ing a ca­ble in through the aux­il­iary port but then the dock does not charge your iPhone and that surely has to be one of the at­trac­tions of a dock. An­other lim­i­ta­tion is that it has AM and FM ra­dio but no dig­i­tal ra­dio. For some, that would rule it out. But let’s look at the flip side. Not ev­ery­one has the lat­est iPhone or iPod and there are many parts of the coun­try that are not in the dig­i­tal ra­dio broad­cast area.
