Here is an announcement of an upcoming dock that will play audio for all of the current transformers. Looks pretty cool...

This needs to have an extra battery, ability to charge the tablet while playing, and BT for it to be useful.

looks good ...

but seriously , a hands on ?
This is an audio device, this needs ears on !
How does it sound!?

i think that it will be cheaper (and better) to buy a nice 2.1 set and plug that in the transformer

Looks interesting. I might be inclined to buy that one, if the price is right.

I was thinking a sturdy base for charging the tablet might be a nice thing to have as well considering the number of busted up charging ports ports that are being reported

Meh.
Generally speaking I don't like spending money on speakers and other accessories that use proprietary connectors. Chargers and things like the keyboard are different because they have real utility and maintain the mobile nature of the device.

Speakers in the other hand... well you can get better speakers for less money most of the time, and if they use standard connectors or Bluetooth or something then you can use them with all of your devices as well as continue to use the speaker when you have upgraded or otherwise replaced the Prime.

Just my 2.

Knowing Bang & Olufsen this could be pricey but if its not outrageous and does charge the tablet I'll be on it!
