    Ok... We have discovered a huge problem in our household. Since upgrading the iPads and iPhones we now do not have any docks that are compatible with our devices. We purchased the adaptor thing but it does not work and we really do not want the Bluetooth speakers because of the interference. Has anyone come across any REASONABLY priced (not Beats or Bose) speaker docks in the UK?

    Did you get the apple adapter? If so then return it for one that works.

    I did from Apple but the sound quality is either poor on the devices we have or does not work at all.

    I'm still using my BT speakers. No interference at all, and I live in a very densely populated area, with lots of signals around. I have two of the original Jambox speakers, and they work great. They pair with every device I own with BT -- iOS and Android. I have a couple of docks, bought with rewards points, but when I spent money, I figured I'd get my money's worth and buy something I could continue to use, no matter which devices I switched to.

    I'm OK with using a jack if stationary, but mobility is the great thing about BT speakers for me. I pair my device with one of my Jamboxes and walk all over the house with just the speaker, so I can work out, get something to eat, take a shower, etc., without ever interrupting my audiobook, music or podcast.

    I tried in my car but again the sound is very low. I'm beginning to think it might be the cable I use to connect to the AUX. I'm going to try another cable.

    Does your car have BT? It works great in my car. I used to use cables but I grew tired of wires all over the place.

    I do get interference in my home off with my BT speaker. It is probably too close to the router.

    Altec Lansing do a great range of speaker docks for a decent price.

    I just tested one of my Jamboxes by putting it directly next to our router. No change in sound quality at all.

    No, that wasn't my point. It was to reassure people who might have interference concerns about BT that that wasn't a prob with every BT speaker.

    By the way, this might be useful to some users:

    The Best $100 Bluetooth Speaker

    Jamboxes run about $150 to $180 now, from what I've seen. Sometimes a good sale takes them lower. There's a giant version for $300.

    I've used only my Jamboxes and the BT in my car, which was factory installed, so I can speak only about how they work.

    I bought a second Jambox because the first worked well for me. I'm big on returning things that don't work well.

    Or every environment. Interference can be from an interior source. After all, it is a wireless signal.

    Yes. That's why I've been very pleased with the Jamboxes. No probs and consistently good sound.

    Maybe I'll try one one day. I've been more into headphones and earbuds lately.
