While we saw ourin December, it's taken a little while longer for docks to appear that you can connect to your hi-fi system. The Cambridge Audio iD100 is the first we've seen.
Unlike other docks you might have seen, the iD100 is a purely digital device so you'll need either a home cinema receiver or an external DAC to get any sound out of it. Of course, Cambridge Audio suggests connecting this directly to its owndevice.
The iD100 features quite a solid build, with the highlight being the thick, curved slab of brushed aluminium at the front. The dock is available in either black or silver, and includes a set of blue activity lights on the front lip, but they're not bright enough to drive you to distraction like some other LEDs.
Cambridge Audio bundles a series of rubber pads to ensure a tighter fit for your device, but if you use a case they may not fit properly. Using the dock without the pads worked just as well.
