Bose has announced that it is launching a new version of its Sound dock on Thursday but before you get too excited it doesn't look like there is much different from the current model.

Called the SoundDock Series II digital music system to give it its full name, the iPod and now iPhone speaker system adds a new auxiliary input that lets users connect other audio devices.

The design does get a few tweaks and the company say that it has been updated to more closely resemble the clean and distinctive lines of the Bose SoundDock Portable digital music system.

It maintains a small footprint, measuring just 6 5/8-inches high by 12-inches wide and 6 1/2-inches deep.

The SoundDock Series II system is available in Gloss Black from Bose for $299 beginning in early September.
