    Hello,
    Can anyone recommend a hi-fi alarm dock for use with an S4? Would prefer a nice unit (Bose, Harmon Kardon, etc.) that has a native, direct connect connector. In other words I don't want to have to use adapters, wires, secondary cradles, etc. Options I have found are few and far between other than a typical $30 iHome unit. The only other option I found was a Philips AS141.

    I just can't believe that more units don't offer interchangeable connectors.

    Any recommendations on units I should check out?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Have you thought about using Blue Tooth as the connection method instead of the plugin? That gives you much more freedom (and no wires.) You can also consider a Smart Dock....

    Not sure what is most important to you. Sound quality? Alarm functions?

    Sound quality is most important. I don't mind a bluetooth connection but I'd like to be able to charge it at the same time.

    I know I could do a stereo, connect it with Bluetooth and set a charge dock on top and achieve the same thing BUT I was after something a little more integrated.

    Thanks!

    All I can say is good luck. For my $ I would rather have a solution that I could be pretty sure would would work with my next device/phone as opposed to a one that is specific to this device. I usually change the phone every couple of years, and a good stereo should last thru several of those.
