    ipod docking radio (iHome)

    Has anyone had one of these not so great pieces of equipment? The docking mechanism in my daughters is no longer working and as near as I can find nobody repairs such things locally. Anyone know differently? It would seem that they are common enough to be something someone could make a few bucks fixing!
    Do they make such a thing that attaches with the cord rather than the dock? That would seem less likely to break.

    Yes they do. Let me see if I can find the one I have on my desk at work online quick...

    Re: ipod docking radio (iHome)

    I have this one for work and I love it, my office is in the middle of the building and it still pulls in a good reception with the antenna just plugged in. It also has an auxiliary cable that allows you to plug into the earphone jack of an mp3 player as well as the docking port. Not the cheapest option but seems like it will be working for a long time.

    I was just in TJMaxx the other day and they had these (all sorts of brands) there. Starting at $15 and up. For that price, I'd just replace it.

    Really? This was a $100 unit just last year. Guess that says a lot!

    Just get a Bose Wave system stereo. You can plug your IPods into just like your wanting to do with the "IHome"

    I'm pretty sure I dont want to spend what they want for one of those, especially since its not even for me! When the ads wont tell you the price - its expensive! Plus it needs to have an alarm clock.

    I hate my iHome, spent too much money on it to just throw it away (what I would like to do).

    Has an alarm clock and you get what you pay for with this product. Mine is simply amazing, however if it's not for you def look for something cheaper.

    This isnt a fantastic piece of sound equipment I'm dealing with here. It is an alarm clock that will play iPod tunes for a 13 year old girl.

    I have some great infinity tower speakers that I'll keep - dont need overhyped Bose.

    I'm guessing the unit you have is still $100, there are quite a few other iHome options for less money but the alarm clock/radio one is still $100. A co-worker has one, almost a year now, and he loves it, have you contacted the company to see if there is a warranty or any other option available from them? Some companies are great with their customer service (still) even after the warranty is up.

    Warranty is up - I can send it in with 40 bucks and they will fix it.

    I used to have an iHome as well. It crapped out on me. With any third party accessory it's a hit or miss on what you get.
