CES iPhone: i.Dream iPod dock sports funny orange lights, only kind of works with iPhone

Meet the i.Dream, a funny looking iPod dock whose lights even a company spokesman couldn't quite explain. The sound is pretty typical for its $130 price tag, so you should only pick it up if this design speaks to you in some way.

The iDream works with iPhone, but apparently can't play iPhone music as loudly as it can play music from a regular iPod. Is this a common problem with iPhones on iPod docks, even ones that are iPhone compatible? Let us know how your iPhone docking experiences have been.
