"Clock radio for the well-to-do"4.0 starson by bousozoku
Pros: Easy setup, easy to use, good sound
Cons: Still pricy even though similar products now exist
Summary: I've had my Wave Radio for nearly 10 years now. I have my iPod dock connected to it and I play just about anything but country and metal. It has good sound but it's not the most amazing. Anyone thinking that something this size is going to compete with full-sized loudspeakers isn't thinking clearly. The lack of tone controls seems odd but the sound is reasonably flat and, once again, is fine for this kind of product.
I can attest to the alarm having a battery backup. It worked during the hurricanes of 2004, when there was no power here. The remote is still working on the original battery after nearly 10 years.
It could really use an FM antenna but it would not fit with the simple nature of this product.
It is a joy to use.
