Your Solo II will sound great just about anywhere and in whatever position you decide on. Its special design allows for either a horizontal or vertical orientation. (If you put it near a wall or corner the bass response will be enhanced) These two equal options are allowed due to the fact that the Solo II's control panel can be rotated. If you want to change the orientation of the radio, simply grasp the ring around the control panel and turn it 90°. This means instant convenience, regardless of the space you are in. In addition, the Solo II's unique snooze bar allows for a temporary reprise from either of the two available independent alarms. Designed in a continuous metal band that stretches around the unit's body, when users need a little more sleep they simply reach out and touch the metal rim around the front of the Solo II. This is easily done no matter how sleepy you are, and regardless of the chosen horizontal or vertical orientation. This delays the alarm for ten minutes. Each additional touch of the rim increases the length of the snooze alarm delay by 5 minutes. The maximum delay is 60 minutes. The display shows the time and a flashing alarm icon. To see how much snooze time is left touch the metal rim once. If you touch the rim again another five minutes is added to the snooze time for each additional touch. To cancel the snooze function press the button for the active alarm. 20 Station Presets
The Solo II has 20 station presets. The presets can be used to store either AM or FM stations. Because of the way the Solo II places stations in the presets you may want to plan how you store them. Here's how it works. The first station you store goes into Preset 1. The second station goes into Preset 2 and so on, up to 20 stations. If you remove a preset all the stations in presets above the one you removed, drop down a preset position. Connect Additional Devices
The Solo II is not limited to AM/FM broadcast content. Other audio equipment, such as an iPod or a portable CD player, can be connected to the Solo II through the rear panel auxiliary input. You will need a cable with a stereo mini plug (sold separately) on both ends. Select the Aux input using the mode control. Key Features
