I normally steer well clear of the cheap end of the electronics market, but this was so cheap I thought I'd take a punt. To cut to the chase, it's a marvellous little unit. It's quite compact (the power supply is an external wall-wart, which keeps the size down) and looks rather smart. I was surprised to find it comes with a complete set of black iPod dock adaptors, my new 160GB classic fits just fine. The iPod dock slides out from the front with a gentle push.
This unit not only charges the iPod, but has buttons on the front to select tracks and select shuffle/repeat options. The display is large and clear, and also shows the radio frequency - quite a surprise, as the tuning is on an old-style thumbwheel so there are no presets.
Sound quality is surprisingly good. I played a range of music from the iPod and there was a good response from the small built-in stereo speakers, with plenty of volume. It's not going to replace your hi-fi of course, but bearing in mind this is a clock radio it sounds good. Recommended!
