Summary: This was advertised as a new unit but when I received it found out it was a refurbished unit. Works exactly as advertised with IPOD and I love that function. I tried to use as an alarm clock but the clock settings kept disappearing. Gave up and now use it at the office to listen to and charge my IPOD. Gave 3 stars due to false advertisement.
Summary: The quality of the audio is considerably below higher end iPod Docks, but it's passable for a dorm room kind of setting. The sound is very compressed and does a decent job in the vocal frequencies and not a heck of a whole lot else. That said, the sound is better than you get with your typical Sony/iHome alarm clock iPod docks and it isn't a whole lot bigger. It also can be louder than those docks.
