can wadia i170 house IPod in protective case?

my ipod classic is housed in a shatterproof plastic case that clips to my belt; i'd hate to have to take the ipod out of the case in order to plug it into the wadia.

can the wadia accept the physically larger size of the ipod (not much larger!) when its in a carrying case like the following?

Why would you hate to remove it from the case?Just curious.
once the ipod is sealed in the case, it requires a screwdriver to pry the case apart.
Yes mine works in a case, in fact I have a few different ones and they have all worked fine. You just have to be a little careful with it just like any docking station.
Mine works in an iSkin case just fine.
