"Could be the Best Alarm Clock for iPod"4.5 starson by smoothbassman
Pros: Works perfectly with iTouch - Line out for Bigger Speakers
Cons: Display is crazy bright, must use the dimmer
Summary: I have been looking around for a alarm clock that doubled as an iPod speaker dock. And I just found this one a few weeks ago.
This thing works great with the iTouch 32G that I have. It controls every function on the Touch with the remote and lets me navigate playlists, and songs with ease from across the room. I love the dual alarms that can be set for weekdays, weekends, or every day. I like how the alarm gradually gets louder as it comes on, as to not to startle you out of bed in the morning, and the snooze even fades out as well.
I was very surprised by the sound quality of this unit and the 3d mode is pretty cool adding some additional depth to your sound. The highs are crisp and the bass is boomy due to the ports in the back. For the 2.5" drivers that are in this thing I was floored by the bass response. Its not going to rattle the room but its very well done for an alarm clock and emjoyable at a medium volume level.
Radio reception is great on my unit. One cool feature is the line out. This is there so you can tie it into a larger sound system if you want, or some additonal powered speakers, for more sound.
My only bad thing about this unit is that there is a slight buzzing sound in the music at low volumes when the backlight is dimmed. if you turn the volume or dimmer up it goes away. Also the line out jack has a set output level and is not variable with the clocks volume.
Overall this alarm is so nice that I bought another one for my wife since she was using mine so fequently to listen to her tunes in the bedroom. An excellent buy!
