Over all I am happy with the product and although I've not had another one I believe this to be the best radio alarm clock with an idock for the iphone that is less than £90.
Good things about it:
1) Works with iphone 3GS (there are many products with idocks but you need to be sure it's compatible with your particualr phone).
2) You don't have to switch the phone off while it's in the idock so you can still recieve calls (the radio just stops when you recieve a call).
3) Almost no interference from the phone while it's in the idock which is often a problem with other devices. (Only rarely a few beeps, but that's to be expected and it's not a problem).
4) You have 4 different alarms which is great. I set mine for the radio to go off at 7am, 5pm, 8pm and 10pm. Or you can opt for the alarm to be an alarm tone or to soemthing on your iPhone.
5) The radio alarm keeps me up to date with news and current affairs with little effort from me (I set the alarm to be Radio 4 or World service)
6) I can listen to my collection of downloaded radio 4 podcasts whenever I like.
7) The sound is powerful and rich as it has 10W speakers.
8) I love the white colour which goes well with a white duvet set and brightens up the room.Read more ›
I normally set these sort of things up, but my girlfriend wanted to set this up, so I sat back and waited to hear her cursing another "stupid machine". Instead all I heard was "that was easy". She plugged it in, turned it on, waited a few seconds and it had scanned the channels and set the time.
Sound quality is actually quite good for such a small little unit. The sound is not as good as something like the Yamaha TSX120 (which I also looked at), but then it is a lot smaller and half the price. DAB radio sounds pretty good, and is easy to use, likewise with an iPod connected. The remote is small, well made and well thought out.
Alarm fucntions work exactly as you would expect (you can choose how you would like to be woken, alarm, radio etc). There is a large snooze bar at the top which is easy to find in the dark.
If you want a DAB radio, alarm clock and iPod dock, small enough to easily fit on a bedside table, then this is for you.
As a kitchen stereo, the size is nice and compact. The set-up was really quite easy. I get good DAB and FM radio reception with the supplied wire aerial, which is only about 1-metre long. (An optional socket to be able to plug-in a different external aerial would have been a good addition).
While the sound quality is perfectly OK to my ears, I am slightly disappointed with the maximum volume this is capable of if you like to listen to LOUD music. The speakers are only 5 Watts but at least they don't distort at all. However, the volume really *is* perfectly acceptable for normal listening levels. It's just that you won't be scaring anyone at parties with this, nor will you have your neighbours banging on the walls!
When playing the iPod, the screen display can only display either the artist *or* the title, but not both, which bugs me.
Some other reviewers have said they have had problems pushing the front panel buttons but I haven't had any problems at all -- and in fact I haven't even needed to use the remote control yet. Other reviewers have also said the system slides back when they press the buttons, but this also does not happen to me (perhaps it's more to do with the surface it's sitting on). But I do think some back-lights for the buttons (and/or some texture to differentiate them) would be a good idea).
There is only limited connectivity as the USB port on the top "is [only] able to power standard USB devices such as fans and mobile phone chargers" -- so it's very limited and can't be used to transfer data/music.Read more ›
