Do they have a receiver that they can attach the iPhone to instead of a stand alone unit? For example Onkyo has a dock that plugs directly into the Onkyo receiver and works really well. Yamaha, Denon, Marantz and other brands also have them for their prospective receivers.

No receiver in their bedroom, thus the idea that this might be nice. My one daughter has ear buds and my other daughter got a set to those "Dr. Dre" cans that are real popular right now. They don't impress me...but hey, my ears are a bit more picky. They have laptops that they hook to and my desktop downstairs, they love to hook it up to my truck system. I'm just not so much of a techno junkie that such stuff interests me. I just listen to my system & thats enough. I'm surprised these aren't on sale anywhere or cheaper on the net. Seems like I can only find them @ $98 or $99. Sony may have price limits set.

An update on the docks.

I called Best Buy because they price match & come to find out, even though there is a price match logo on their add, they don't price match since they are not the primary seller. A quick look at the item again on the BB site show Buy.com as the seller. So I tell the man thank you & proceed to the Amazon site to make the purchace.

As do many sites, this one offers other puchases on their links & I notice the CMTV50IP advertised for $2 more.

So I go to the Sony web site to read about it. It has twice the power & a headphone jack + will dock a tablet as well. I call Sony to talk to a sales associate & to make a long story short, they price match the add, upgrade the shipping & they will be at my house Wednesday.

hjones4841, I did try to look at some Visio models, I'm not a Sams member & our Costco didn't have them. WalMart didn't have them either so I went with the Sony's. Thanks for your reply.
