As you can see from my signature, my kit hasn't changed much for several years - but arguably hasn't needed to!
However the iriver is starting to need tlc so it is maybe time for a change. I tried to plug an ipod Touch into the amp using the Cottondock only to (belatedly) realise that it doesn't disable the Touch's speakers.
What good quality docks are generally available in the UK or Europe - the Fiio L9? I don't want to spent a fortune at this...
