[bookport] Re: External speaker for use with the Bookport

I have finally found a supplier who sells them in Australia

www.i-tech.com.au

Now which is better - the mono or stereo?  Why are people only wanting the 
mono model?

Just deciding which one to buy.

The 24 disk stereo model is at:

The 12 disk mono model is at:

http://www.i-tech.com.au/products/item315.asp


Thanks,

Dale.
