I think a "dock" is unnecessary.

However, if it doesn't add appreciably to the cost or complexity, I think that having a 1/8" analog input jack in addition to the Airplay and/or Bluetooth might make the device applicable to more applications and sources.

Or maybe that's already covered by the Audiobytes.

I have an Android phone, an iPad and PC's. If the device ONLY had Airplay, I probably wouldn't buy it since I'm not running an Apple router at my house. Ken/others: isn't it true that you need the Airplay/Airport router or an Apple TV to make this scenario work? That is, an iPhone, iPod or iPad wouldn't be enough to stream music to speakers like this, right?
