I know there is the SDAMXBSTA75 which is used for the e200 series. The Fuze appears to have the same 30 pin connector, but someone said they tried the View with this docking station and the remote control was not able to control the View's track selection and volume (the only functions available on the remote). I would really like to know whether or not SanDisk is developing a new docking station specifically for the View and Fuze series. It would be a shame to have such a great product neglected in accessory support.

I have not tried that particular dock personally, but the controls on the one I listed did work with the Fuze. However, I do not think those have a remote. If you need something with a remote, the Timex Clock Radio has a remote that works with the Fuze.
Never give up!....insert more quarters...

I am getting a Sansa Fuze and one of my requirements is to get a dock that works with it. If anyone has actually used a Sansa Fuze in a dock with a remote and knows it works I would greatly appreciate you indicating which one so that I can get one.

I have a Sansa dock and yes it works. Search for Sansa Base Station.
You can remove the plastic e200 or c200 adapter and the fuze will plug on the connector.

That is cool...thanks for the link - I had not seen that one before. Is there verification of one with built-in speakers that works with the Fuze and a remote control?

Well, I got the SDAMX-BST docking station to use with my 8GB Fuze and gave it a try yesterday. The mechanical adapters did not work with the Fuze (as expected since they are for the e-series only). The Fuze did plug into the docking station without any mechanical adapter on the base station. The power button on the remote works, the play/pause button works, the track advance and reverse works - and so does the volume up and down. This last point was a disappointment to me. I thought the docking station would have a true line-out signal coming from the Fuze. It appears the line-out is only an amplified version of the headphone output. I was hoping to use this to listen to my player through my stereo system, but the line-out signal is too weak and way too flat (complete lack of amplitude for low frequency/mid-range frequency signals). I had to turn the volume on the Fuze almost all the way up to get any real signal strength out of it and even then the audio stage was lacking. I was hoping it would be a true high level line-out with good quality audio, but looks like I will be using this only for small desktop speakers at best. Another discouraging thing is that I also purchased the Griffin docking station for the Fuze at the same time as I purchased the SDAMX-BST (since the Griffin docking station was only $15 and will soon be discontinued, I thought I might as well get it too) and it is no better. The Griffin dock is also an amplified headphone out signal. The worst part about the Griffin dock is the fact the internal amplifier saturates at a volume on the Fuze at around 5/8 volume and can not provide any additional amplitude to the line-out. The Griffin also lacks the audio clarity I was hoping for so now I am stuck scratching my head trying to find a good way of getting high level line-out audio into my stereo from any mp3 player. I hope this helps clear up some details about these two docking stations.

Thanks for the details. I've seen pictures of the Griffin dock cracked open, and it appears to just take the line-out straight off the adapter, so most likely the Fuze line-out isn't a fixed volume.

To answer your question/quest...
SPEAKERS & REMOTE = Altec Lansing iM413, made for the e200 series, but works fine with FUZE.
BTW - Some one earlier mentioned the remote does not function with the View, well that's incorrect... Well as long as you are using the latest firmware on the View (.09A).
Hope this helps...
Good Luck !!
