Question about Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker
Because Ipod dock
can be separated from speaker, can I buy replacement dock? I spent 300
dollars a few years ago(2) and don't want to throw it in the trash if
it is fixable. It's the black model speaker dock. When the ipod is placed on the dock, it leans back. I used to be able to insert a thin item like the ipod carrying case between the docked Ipod and the Bose speaker system behind it, but that no longer works. Is it possible to buy a replacement dock?
There is a solderless way to hack an aux input for the Sounddock.
(1)Go to Wal-mart (or elsewhere) and buy the Griffin Dock Adapter for iPod Shuffle (~$20) and a Belkin Speaker and Headphone splitter (~$4). (The Belkin splitter is needed in order to fit properly over the Shuffle plug on the device, but other cables/adapters might work.)
(2)Remove the existing adapter plate and replace it with the Dock adapter.
(3) Set the switch to speaker. (Very Important!) (4)Plug in one end of the Belkin adapter and you are ready to go! Any input signal automatically activates the Sounddock. Now you have a fully functional female and male stereo headphone input for your Sounddock. You just need an aux cable to hook up the ipod
–>Total cost ~$25 and no soldering required.

It should just easily be lifted out of the docking station
you can buy a replacement bose docking station although they are abit pricey. altec lansing offers a docking station at a considerable savings tho i cannot attest to the sound quality of either.
here is a price comparison http://www.amazon.com/Bose-SoundDock-digital-music-system/dp/B0006VX1G8 you may be able to buy it cheaper then is shown.
