I've not heard for sure, but just a word of advice. If the Stiletto Executive System is anything like the S50 Executive System. Do yourself a favor and get the Boombox instead. My experience with the Executive System was that it had a really crappy amp and the SQ was barely acceptable. It wouldn't get very loud without distorting and had no bass.

The Boombox that is out now ROCKS by comparison!

I will say the Executive System does look nice, but that is about the only thing it has going for it. Also remember it requires AC power and has no ability to run off batteries at all.

Ok I might just take your suggestion. I use my stiletto at work with a set of speakers but would perfer to use a system mean for it. Also with teh boombox I will have the ability to use it on the go if I wish.

Anyone know where they have some in stock?

Thanks again

I think I've seen someone say that seen them at CC. I know Crutchfield has them. Aren't you in Canada, I think Crutchfield ships to Canada now or maybe they have an outlet in Canada. You might check them out.

Yes, the boombox would give you portability that the Executive System will not due to it also providing power on battery.

Yup I'm in canada but they don't sell that on the canada site yet. So I order it and send it to a US address I have. I just ordered it today can't beat 127$ for it. They said it was on backorder and they have no clue when the order will be filled. At least my name is on the list.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Just to tell you that I found the docking station at Future Shop

I'll put some pick up soon, I'm happy to say it works quite well for office use and also comes with a Remote Control

Does that mean that no one has seen the Executive System at this point?

They just started to ship to us now. Though nothing on the Stiletto Boombox yet.

Amazing that Canada would get these first. That's different.

Good deal, I'll be curious how it compares with the Boombox and previous S50 Executives System, which I was none to impressed with and sold it immediately after purchasing it. I still feel the boombox is a better overall option compared to the Executive System, but it is nice to have a choice.

Well ok here are my thaughs.

The executive dock is quite stylish, it has a very nice small footprint and I must say the sound that it packs is quite impressive. The unit comes with a remote which is nice, and the Volume does work on the remote. To put the volume up and down you must use the controls on the unit. It has the 10 preset button on it that is quote handy when you have the unit on your desk, so you can quickly swap through your 30 presets. The unit can also be wall mounted. It comes with a bracket that you can attached to it and place it on a wall. Which I might be doing at a later date so I can get more desk space.

All in all I had the Executive dock for the Sportster in the past and I must say the sound comming out of this unit is superior to the Sportster excutive dock that I had.

Here are some pics

It is good to read that they made improvement to this model. So is there any kind of bass control or equalizer settings as there is on the Soloist and Boombox?
