Well, I took the plunge and bought one of these damn things, after hearing them in a few local stores and thinking "Damn, that sounds awesome".
A little over $300 for it, but man, it really does sound great. There's a $100 iPod dock that you can buy for it, or you can use a $9 Amazon one with a $2 cable instead, like I did.
The only downside of it is that as far as I can tell, the only way to do anything at all with it is via the remote control, so if you lose it, you're pretty much screwed.
