"We auditioned the ZiiSound D5 by playing tracks encoded in Apple Lossless from an iPod docked directly to the ZiiSound D5, and then streamed the same tracks via Creative’s Bluetooth dongle. Remarkably, we were unable to detect any compression artifacts or other unpleasantness in the stream; in fact, the audio sounded great. Wireless iPod speaker docks are so much more convenient than the alternative. Who wouldn’t rather pick up their iPod to change tracks, adjust the volume, or navigate playlists instead of walking over the speaker and manipulating the iPod’s controls while it’s docked."
