How is the Apple iPod Universal Dock for connecting to a home stereo?

My daughter has a Nano, and I want to get a dock so she can play it through the stereo in her room.

How is the Apple iPod Universal Dock ($39)? I saw a cheaper Kensington model on Amazon, but some of the reviews said the sound quality was iffy.

Is the sound quality transfer to a stereo receiver better with the Apple?

Any input on this or a preferred make/model would be appreciated, and make my Christmas shopping that much easier....

Depends on several factors: quality of sound system, quality of MP3 encoding, quality of cable used to connect.

All these things being equal, the Kensington dock is a good choice if you want to save money.
