I purchased the DLO Homedock deluxe and was very dissapointed.  The remote was unresponsive and covered in scratches, furthermore (and I consider this the most important) the sound quality was extremely poor. I sent it back.

I have now bought the Griffin Tunecenter in the hope that I get decent navigation and decent sound quality.  I will let you know my verdict compared to the DLO offering.

I am perplexed as to why no manufacturers have yet managed to really nail this item.  I dream of having a virtual dukebox which can display artwork and make navigation easy whilst tapping into a huge library of music.  Surely this cannot be too difficult. 

Hitachi had a crack at this with their HD stereo but from what I understand navigation between tracks is not easy.  Surely somoeone can produce a decent large scale virtual dukebox with decent audio quality.
