Summary: This little guy looks great and sounds great. Unfortunately, it does not work with an IPhone 4s (even though responders to my question said it does). The 30 pin adapter/converter (sold separately and hard to find) makes the phone stick up too high and it looks terrible, and it does not wake up to the radio. When I set it (front and back), it only beeps. So, I can't wake to music on either my IPhone or the radio.
Summary: A fun little radio. I'm using it as a kitchen radio. There's a few things they could improve upon. I don't like the power cord. It's similar to a laptop power cord, where you have the block in between, so it's a mess to keep out of the way and hidden. However, the block keeps a charge going for an hour or so, so if the power goes out you don't lose your stuff. Also, a better FM antenna would have been better. Bluetooth would have been nice too.
Summary: I've been looking for a good bedside radio and this one fits the bill. It's nice and compact, so it doesn't use up the whole table. Reception is excellent. The sound is a little boomy for my taste, but it's somewhat adjustable. My main issue with available radios is that they seem to double as night lights or worse, but this one has a muted display that is dimmable to boot.
Summary: I spend well over a year looking for a replacement clock radio to replace my 5 year old Sony Dream Machine with the non functioning CD player. I looked at them all- Tivoli, iHome, Sony, Bose, and every other clock radio, but nothing met my requirements. I wanted an AM and FM radio/iPod player that was small enough to fit on my night stand and actually had a nice enough sound quality that I could use it to listen to music verses just wake me up in the morning.
Summary: The pros: Beautiful retro design and cool case, amber display is just perfect, great sound at low to mid volumes, dimmable lights, works seamlessly with ipod/iphone and charges them (I used iPhone 4) and is high quality. Far better sound than most alarm clock iphone docks. Cons: Alarm sound is pretty annoying. Sure, alarms are always annoying but this sound really grated my nerves. I found the snooze difficult to locate and press in my morning stupor.
Summary: I have a 35 year old Zenith clock radio. I told myself that someday, if this clock radio ever died, I will spoil myself and buy a Bose wave radio to replace it. Alas, that day has arrived. I went online to order my Bose wave, and learned that some IDIOT at Bose had decided it would be a good idea to eliminate all the control buttons from the unit, and control everything from a tiny little remote! This does not make the wave a good choice for use as a bedside alarm clock.
Summary: Sounds GREAT for something this size. Adjustable base and treble, deep base, easy to use, excellent build and quality, the snooze bottom is not too terribly close to any button that would turn off the alarm, nice features on the remote unit and it looks awesome. The "alarm" button is fairly close to the snooze and will disarm the alarm if pushed by mistake, but the snooze is right in the middle and fair size, so I think the placement is acceptable.
Summary: It is a very nice radio. the size is perfect. It sounds very good. the packaging was excellent. I enjoy it very much. a suggestion: cover up could miss out, falls all the time, should be clinging to something.
