It looks good and works great.

On Standby the unit displays nothing but a blueish glow, THE TIME DOESN'T DISPLAY and can't display if you have a wake up time set.

JVC managers shot the engineer too soon on this product.

First let me say that the dual dock is awesome. I use this unit with my 3g iPhone and iPod Color. This unit has great sound, and good functionality. for instance, from standby, pressing the play button once, not only wakes up the unit, but also starts playing the last song played on the iPod, nice and easy!

However here are two critical flaws that no one else has mentioned.

1. There is no "Snooze" function! What kind of clock radio has no snooze????

2. Even worse, to use the wake up timer, you have to and I quote the users manual, " Turn off the unit (on standby)". On Standby the unit displays nothing but a blueish glow, THE TIME DOESN'T DISPLAY and can't display if you have a wake up time set. What???????

So just to make sure that you understand, when setting a wake up timer, (which this unit has 3 of) you cannot have the ability to display the time and have a wake up setting active. So rolling over in the middle of the night to glance at the time is not an option with this thing. How lame!!

Other than these 2 (in my opinion) huge functional missteps, this would be the perfect dual ipod AM/FM clock radio.

I bought this because I wanted to reduce the clutter of multiple chargers and cords and docks, and I wanted the convenience of a set of powered speakers for my iPhone 3G and clock radio all in one. While I can say that my basic needs were met with this, I can't give it a ringing endorsement for a number of reasons. But before I get into those reasons, a quick basic overview;

The JVC Dual Dock is a fairly compact unit, and the overall quality is fine. Not what I'd expect at this price, but no different than most clock radios. The glossy finish does come off as a bit cheap actually, but overall the unit is handsome. The buttons are clearly labeled and simple to operate, which is nice for those features that can be accessed with the buttons on the unit (more about that later). I'm irked that one of the few buttons on the unit is dedicated to the rather silly and pointless color LED function, but I can't weight that too heavily in the review. The one real downside of the design of the JVC Dual Dock is the power brick; it is absolutely huge. Bigger than I've seen for almost any electronic device ever. Maybe that won't matter for some folks, but in my case I put the unit on my bookshelf and am not able to put the power brick on the floor because I have to run the cable through the back of the bookcase. The power cords do not detach from the unit, so that means I have to have the power brick hidden behind the unit on the bookshelf. Though not removable, the power cord is plenty long from both plug to brick and brick to unit, so hiding the brick somewhere shouldn't be too much trouble for most.

The sound quality is adequate. I would compare the sound quality to a $20-$30 set of computer speakers.

Do I like this product? yes and no.

I bought this for the purpose of having a nice alarm clock and charging station for my iphone and ipod touch. It does that. I'm an engineer... I have several complaints. JVC designers didn't do a very good job on several area's, although the overall look, sound, and dual nature is fantastic.

Complaints:
1) Bright display is too bright at night. Wrong color too. It should be red... you can turn off the display (ECO mode) sort of, but then, the ipod charging quits too... so you wake up with ipods not charged. That sucks. There is not a good reason why the display couldn't be fixed. I know, because I've done it myself in commercial products which I've designed.

2) The remote was obviously created by a retarded chimp throwing darts at a chalkboard. The locations of the buttons make no sense whatsoever (ZIPPO!), and there is an ipod looking silkscreen on the front of the membrane of the remote, made to simulate and look like an ipod, but it doesn't behave at all like an ipod. The folks at JVC messed this up greatly; next time JVC, you can hire my cat... she can do better than your dart-tossing monkey. Great main unit JVC, so why did you stop when it came to the remote?

3) I have yet to find a use for the colored lights. It would be cool if they would work like the color organ lights of the 60's and 70's...throbbing in sync to magical mystery tour music, but they don't. They just sort of sit there... doing nothing. They're useless. I would make them pulsate to the music... make the remote double as a bong, and you'd really have something.

4) The time clock, and the AM radio... hard to tell the AM radio from the clock display, because they both have "AM" in them. Again, dumb dumb dumb.

I love the sound and quality of this Audio System, setting it up was a little frustrating at first because you have to do it with the remote control but once you get the hang of it, it is easy.

This is a great product with amazing sound. I charge my blackberry next to it and you don't get that static like some units. There are 2 negatives ... the time display is too small and the time does not show when playing the radio or iPod ... you have select "display" from the remote to display the time instead of the radio station or the iPod that is playing. However the sound quality and ability to charge 2 iPods or an iPod and an iPhone out ways the negatives.
