A good choice if you want to use iPod and DAB, with different alarms on the weekend...

  • Excerpt: I've been using this as my main bedside clock and alarm for nearly a year now, and it has done a very good job of waking me up so far. However, the body of this clock radio is very lightweight, to the point that it feels quite flimsy in use.
  • Pros: Reliability

  • Excerpt: I received this alram clock as a present and when I got it out of the box I decided to see how easy it was to set it up. Much to my delight, it did set up very easily, all I needed to do was plug it in and put the battery in the remote and it was done!

  • Excerpt: Pure are a trusted brand when it comes to the DAB radio market, they have been around quite a while and were the first company to bring out a portable DAB radio. This time around they concentrate their efforts on a DAB clock radio with an iPod dock, the big question is does it deliver?

  • Excerpt: I treated myself to one of these at Christmas, and four months in i'm still happy with it. I accept that it might not suit everyone but for what I wanted it for it's just perfect. The Pure Chronos iDock in white cost me £78 in December.
  • Pros: Compact size .  Great Value for money you get iPod dock AND DAB radio .  Excellent customer service
  • Cons: Sound quality good but not suitable for audiophiles, small remote

  • Summary: When I first read reviews on this, I was doubtful about buying it, because there were a lot of bad comments about the sound quality and an annoying high pitched noise, etc. But I bought it anyway, because it was one of a kind- the only DAB alarm clock radio with an iPod dock, and I knew i could cope...
  • Pros: Good sound quality, iPod dock, Alarms
  • Cons: Slightly bad signal in my area, but not too bad; low iPod volume

  • Summary: This is probably the first iPod dock I've seen that actually gives a half decent sound. It might not be extremely powerful, but what it definitely is...
