SanDisk Sansa Base Station for the e200 & c200

sansa dock main SanDisk Sansa Base Station for the e200 & c200

SanDisk is not messing around when it comes to getting their Sansa MP3 players into the hands of many. One of the biggest complaints that non-iPod owners have is the lack of accessories that are available. With the introduction of more and more accessories for non-iPods, these complaints should slowly fade away; in SanDisk’s case that fade may start here.

The Sansa docking station comes equipped with audio, power, and USB inputs with a remote that mounts in the back of the dock. Also included in the box is an RCA audio cable, USB cable, power adapter, and inserts for the corresponding models. The dock will go on sale sometime in October and will retail for around $70.

This docking station is really cool. That 8GB Sansa and this docking station make an awesome couple…

Now why can’t we have this remote base station for the Creative ZVM? hmmm? Much more useful for video-out control… but kudos to SanDisk for the accessories luv..

Tomek on September 3, 2006 12:27 AM

Alex M on September 4, 2006 6:33 PM

adam on September 8, 2006 12:42 PM

i’m not sure if i get it, you plus this dock into a stereo or something? can’t u just plug the mp3 player into a stereo with a $4 cable? so ur spending $70 for a remote control?what they really need is a dock station in the car, b/c my car has nowhere to set my player besides the seat next to me and i hate that.

Hoola-Hoop on September 8, 2006 10:58 PM

I can not wait till’ that comes out. It is going to be so tite. That is true, i was getting frusterated with the lack of the accesories made for it.

jim on November 29, 2006 11:32 PM

Boxwave has a car dock for sansa

Owen on December 16, 2006 2:59 AM

Adam… it’s called ‘style’. If you don’t ‘get it’ then there’s your answer; isn’t it ;)

Andy K on December 24, 2006 3:30 AM

looks great, like Owen says – it’s a style thing.Shame the USB port on the docker couldn’t have been put on the player itself!

andrew on December 29, 2006 3:33 PM

Hannah on February 5, 2007 9:42 PM

André on February 23, 2007 2:14 PM

iiih! =) want that! thought about somehow customize and mount it in the car, then i don’t have to burn everything down to cd’s hah :D what do you think??

kc on April 2, 2007 11:49 PM

can u hook it up to a cd player in a car and use the remote on it for songs through the car

Brett on May 20, 2007 9:59 AM

Seems like a good idea. Wonder if it will sound any different then just hooking it up via the headphone jack to my home stereo receiver.

Steve on May 31, 2007 10:52 PM

In my experience, the audio connection via the dock is better than going through the headphone jack, at least if you have an AUX input in your car. By better I mean vastly superior. It’s louder, cleaner, and punchier. The headphone jack is a poor substitute for a line level output. Someone at SanDisk should be fired for not offering an accessory cable that attaches to the dock connector port and provides two features: A power connector for the cigarette lighter and a line level cable with a 1/8″ mini jack that connects to the AUX input. I know several people with new cars and Sansa players, and there is no good way to connect/charge the player.

Mike on June 24, 2007 8:16 PM

Hey, I have a stereo (Mini) that doesnt have the audion jacks in the back. Can you go through the midi input??

Tim on July 16, 2007 9:37 PM

I second Steve’s comments regarding having an accessory cable that attaches to the dock connector port and provides two features: A power connector for the cigarette lighter and a line level cable with a 1/8″ mini jack that connects to the AUX input. I can find nothing like it anywhere; this is an item that is available for iPods. I don’t know about firing anyone, but any Sansa owner with a car that has an aux jack in the dash is a possible customer…

David on September 13, 2007 3:50 PM

I don’t get why they don’t have a dock station with both speakers and the remote control… inMotion is really cool but the lack of remote control is annoying

Netopya12123 on February 23, 2008 4:00 PM

Does the dock still work if you have a case on the sansa?

Gil on March 8, 2008 2:32 PM

I have seen it for as little as $20, but does the actual unit have speakers?

Sean Megley on June 9, 2008 10:45 PM

I have the base and it works perfectly with the e200′s and below. With the Sansa View, I have had problems with charging the battery and poor sound quality. And no, you cannot use the base with the e250 with a case on.

Rui on April 23, 2009 7:10 PM

Does it work with the Sansa Fuse?

Chuck Remer on May 19, 2009 10:55 AM

Will Matt Serra or Matt Hughes win?

barca26 on July 14, 2009 12:50 AM

Does this works if the Sansa has the rock box firmware as primary or do you have to boot it up into its normal one in order to listen to music?

jason on November 6, 2009 10:24 PM

No rockbox as far as I have seen. I search the forum every week or so. I aim to get one soon, then will need to get lab access at work to try it under the scope and see if I may contribute.
