Yeah, I'm wondering that myself. There is the circuitry in the base unit that cleans up the digital, and the little RF ilink, but still, 2 grand? There should be someone else who can port the digital to the dock for much less- be nice to be able to use an external DAC since you're on the hook for the amp anyway.
