Conclusion: The XtremeMac Luna is a great little iPod-based clock/radio system for home, dorm or office use (for those that power nap at work). With its unique design, the Luna looks, functions and sounds better than most other clock/radio systems available on the market. Although I had one significant beef with the Luna (loud click-clack buttons), I was satisfied by its performance as a clock radio.
Pros: Lots of great clock radio features; sleek, modern design; good sounding; external audio output
Cons: Limited iPod menu navigation; loud buttons; average radio reception
Excerpt: (1 items) Ever since iHome Audio released the $120 iH5 back in mid-2005, iPod-based alarm clocks have been popular accessories. As I said back when we reviewed the iH5: It’s a no-brainer: People like to wake up to music, so why shouldn’t it be to their favorite music? Why not combine the things most likely to be on an iPod owner’s nightstand, desk, or kitchen counter—a clock, a radio, and an iPod speaker system—into a single product?
Pros: Good sound quality for an iPod clock radio, Full-featured remote, Extensive configurability, Unique and useful onscreen menu system, Dual alarms with many options, Attractive design
Cons: Radio tuning is somewhat confusing, and reception is not as good as that of other radios we’ve tested, No day-specific alarm settings, Remote buttons difficult to press
