Default Laptop docking station and Note 10.1

Hi,

I'm currently exploring ways to connect my Note 10.1 to the Smart board/VGA in my classroom. Ideally, I would also like sound through the independent speakers. My first thoughts are thus:

Ekit 4 straight into the tablet.

eKit 4 in 1 Connection Kit Compatible with Galaxy Tab 8.9", Galaxy Tab 2 10.1" and Galaxy Note 10.1": Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

iKross connector into the micro usb on the Ekit.

iKross MHL Micro-USB to VGA Display and Stereo Audio: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Not sure if that will work, but I'm still exploring.

My second thought was a laptop docking station with an independent power supply that everything could plug in to and could be left on my desk. Again, not sure if this will work, but I was looking at this one:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-com-Universal-Docking-Station-Ethernet/dp/B003EKDYL0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1BXOTOW0UX49E &coliid=IOFYQKMRYZQXR

If I could connect that via the USB to the 30 pin on the tablet, it would have all the VGA/sound/usb requirements I could possibly need.

Before I start spending, has anyone tried this before or have any other configurations?

Cheers,

Thorchild
