Summary: Per Phillips specifications this model is compatible with the iPod Classic line of iPod's (as well as several models iPads and iPod Touches). Phillips indicated it has stopped being compatible with the iPod classic several years ago once the System Software is upgraded from version 1.03 that was available when it was first put on the market, i.e.
Summary: I love this Dual Dock. I had an iHome speaker dock that worked with my iPhone 4S prior to purchasing this. I recently obtained a hand me down iPad 3 from my best friend. I wanted a solution to charge both devices simultaneously and this fit the bill. I had an issue when I first powered it on though. I had my iPhone and iPad charging and I was listening to music streaming from my phone.
Summary: This radio is very clear to listen to. The DC290 version played the ipod/iphone immediately upon connection. This one doesn't do that. It charges my iPhone fairly fast. My last radio charged at a much slower rate.
Summary: Bought this for my mom, who has a 30 pin connector on her ipad, and the lightning port on her iPhone. Bought a 30pin-Lightning adapter for the phone, and both of these sit securely on the stand. Playback is easily started, and sound quality is very good for a device this size. Remote is very user friendly and functions well. Clock face is bright and easy to read.
Summary: This replaced a gift for my 10 yr old son. We bought him an iHome ipod dock/alarm clock and we were unsatisfied with the sound quality or ease of use. This is a great dock/alarm clock and a great value. It offers great sound and the clock is easy to read any time of the day. We keep it on top of a dresser very close to a wall in the center of his square room. I think this placement offers the fullest sound.
Summary: Philips has made the warranty registration so difficult and next to impossible that it is not worth it. First you are REQUIRED to register with them BEFORE you can attempt to register a product, ANOTHER screen name and password, once you have registered they want you to "upload a copy of the receipt file" What? Maybe you have your receipts stored in a file on your computer, but I don't.
Summary: I have to write a review on this dock based on a couple of weeks of using this thing. I am a huge audio person and find the sound superb for an inexpensive "bed side dock". So far this dock has been outstanding and has exceeded my expectations. The sound fills a room and in fact when turned up can be heard on our entire first floor of our home, which is very spread out.
