Ah, now I get what you're saying. I was put off by the inclusion of "FireWire" because neither the dock nor my iPod use a FireWire cable to connect / charge. So the actual dock connector in the iSound speaker system uses the FW-designated charging pins rather than the USB- charging pins.

Crap. So there's probably no way to make this work.

I wonder if I connect a USB charger (like my portable MacAlly unit) via cable to the back of the iSound unit, will that charge the iPod? Must give it a shot...

There are adapters to allow for charging.

I'm excited to get my 6th gen! I first requested service on 13 Nov and received the box over a month later. They received my 1st gen on 19 Jan and identified the product. "Pending" now

Update: Good news. Kudos to the folks who built the iSound Max for being smart and including a cable port on the back. The aforementioned FireWire charging pin issue has been addressed by connecting the iSound to a USB charger. Now both our iPod Touch and our new iPod Nano 6th-gen will charge while docked.

Is everyone just getting the silver model then? I just registered with Apple to send my nano back, I had no idea there was a recall on them until I took mine into irepair here in Toronto and the guy told me about getting a replacement for it. Mine never held a proper charge for the battery, it would crap out in less than an hour and it's been totally dead for a few months now. I'm thrilled that Apple is replacing it though, good for them to step up.

That was the situation with mine as well. It did work when I first bought it, but the battery life went to crap quickly. I had thought about replacing the battery a few times, but it basically just sat in a drawer the last couple of years while I used my shuffles and iPhones. So it's fantastic to have it upgraded.

Thought about going for it but I don't know where my first-gen Nano is, probably at the bottom of a drawer somewhere.

Last week on a whim I just went out and bought a new Nano, 16 gigs. Nifty little device but I find the sound quality disappointing. It is noticeably different from my current iPod Touch, and from what I recall of my older iPods (fifth-gen click-wheel & original Nano) it's not as good as them either.
