    While I'd love to have it, I'd love to have $350 a little more, I think.

    Thanks for sharing the find, Boovish. I remember seeing one a few weeks back selling for about this price too. Definitely a premium price for what I understand to be a somewhat unfinished product. Word is these don't have the highest of audio clarity, might be an engineering issue. Still, I would love to have one, but not for twice what I paid for my Pre3.

    The audio isn't bad, according to the review I read. But it does fit the Pre 3 better than the old Touchstone.

    Yikes. Owning one, I can tell you it's not worth nearly that much, unless you deem the collectible novelty to be worth an extra $300...

    And the audio quality isn't bad, but it certainly isn't great either.

    It was selling for exactly that price... It's the same auction and this is the third or forth thread pointing it out.

    LOL to casual observers it appears that a whole slew of these Touch Stone 2 audio docks are being released. They are not. One was being sold by a member here and was bought by a member here...

    Every 2 to 3 weeks someone else stumbles across the expired auction and reposts it is all.

    Well, from what it looks like, the same seller (based out of SF) has been posting new auctions. I've been following them all. These were the prices:

    $325+$0s&h (sold)
    $350+$10s&h (sold)
    $375+$10s&h (expired)
    $350+$10s&h (current)

    {EDIT} The last auction has been pointed to a few times in multiple threads. And died... Read the forums folks! {/EDIT}

    Unfortunately, this person thinks that they'll be able to get >$300 for them... (This idea may have been reinforced by the first two selling at all... likely due to the "if I don't buy it now, some one else will and I'll never get one!" mentality.)

    I would likely NOT pay >$250USD for one, unless there was a compelling reason to (or if I just had the money to throw away -- I don't, it is tax season). $250 is a stretch (I even indicated this to the sellar!). Oh well.

    There are at least three because I paid the "Yikes" price for the one , and there are at least two on eBay right now for similar prices (mine was a smidgen lower in price, but not much). One is for sale by the same person, and another one is for sale with an additional empty Touchstone 2 shell by someone else.

    I think the audio quality is fine, but it's more suited to Nirvana than to Vivaldi. Silent stretches are not really silent -- there's an audible buzz.

    This may sound strange, but while I don't think it's worth what I paid for it, I am glad I got it. It does hold the Pre 3 better than the original touchstone, and the Bluetooth audio feature is both useful and pretty cool!

    If you add, "...and I REALLY want one!", that would be me.

    Yes, you can tell that those are Veers by their size in comparison to the Touchstone.

    The batteries in the pic are Veer batteries, which is a surprise...
