Default Executive Dock Volume Control

How is the low-end of the volume of the Executive Docking Station? I am thinking of getting one to use for work. I work in a cubicle, so I need to keep the volume fairly low so that only I can hear it. Currently, I just use the s50 media player by itself, plugged into computer speakers. I would like to listen live so I can channel surf more. Do you think it's worth the price tag of the executive dock, or should I just go with another home dock and use my computer speakers? The executive dock looks nice, but I don't like the price tag. The best price I've found is $180 at Crutchfield, whereas home kits are around $70.

For your application, I'd say go with the home kit and stay with you computer speakers. Spending money on the Executive system in the manner in which you'll be using it, is just a waste of good money.

That was an issue when I first got the Executive Dock. It does not remember where the volume is set. When I would first turn it on, it would be VERY LOUD. I quickly would turn it down. But the very next time it would go on, BOOM it goes back to being loud again.

I returned it.

Thanks guys. I think I will just get another home kit. Rubin, I read some of your old posts on the Executive Dock as well.
