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.
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
Excerpt: I have had one of these in white for 6 months or so now, and I am resonably happy with it's performance. The features of the unit are: - Designed to work with most iPod models. Listen or wake to your iPod whilst it charges - Four independent alarm settings, with wake to tone, DAB, FM or iPod - Light...
Pros: Lots of features, love the energy saving mode on the screen and the 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
