Excerpt: This Sony Dream Machine is a very useful product as it combines many functions into one piece of equipment. It works as an alarm clock, an AM/FM radio, iPod speakers and an iPod charger. I’ve split this review into several sections.
Summary: Just because it is Sony, I bought it. But the sound is not what I expected. At high volume, we can hear some distortion on the quality of sound. The radio signal is very low, therefor difficult to have a clear listening. Work very good with i pod.
Summary: I don't know why people try to compare these players to a Bose player - they are not in the same price range so of course the Bose is better... That said....this is a great Ipod player (and charger) - I use it at work - fits perfectly and looks great.
Sony Clock-Radio with iPhone/iPod Dock is Superb ,,, and NO brightness problem

Summary: I won't repeat all the details other reviewers have written, but I just want to say one thing: I don't know what all the fuss is about regarding the brightness of the display. From what others posted I almost did not purchase this item. But I'm glad I did.
Summary: Sony, a well known producer of radios makes a decent attempt into the iPod speaker business essentially cornered by cheaply made but expensively priced iHomes. Sony has some great successes with this model, but also some things do fall flat.
