Simultaneously Plays Music and Charges

The Philips Docking clock radio lets you connect your iPod or iPhone so you can wake up to your favorite music with full, clear sound. This system also automatically charges your device while it's docked--even with a case on--so you won't have to worry about running out of battery power.

Bass Reflex Speakers Deliver Rich, Deep Bass

The Bass Reflex Speaker System delivers a deep bass experience from a compact loudspeaker box system. It features a bass pipe that is acoustically aligned to the woofer to extend low frequency sound and reduce distortion. This system packs 10 watts RMS total output power.

Full Music Navigation with Remote Control

An all-in-one remote control that comes with the system lets you easily browse through your music as well as control all the functions of the docking system itself.

Dual Alarm Clock Settings for Weekdays and Weekends

Forget the hassle of fiddling with different alarm times. A dual alarm lets you set different wake-up times for weekdays and weekends, or choose two separate alarm settings for you and a companion.

Gentle Wake and Sleep Timer

A gentle wake feature gradually increases volume to wake you without jarring you out of sleep, whether you're waking to a radio station or to your favorite tunes on your docked device. At night, set the sleep timer for up to one hour to listen to music as you fall asleep--the system will go into standby mode at your chosen time.

Digital FM Tuner for Your Favorite Broadcasts

You can easily tune in to FM radio to get your morning news, traffic reports, or other live broadcasts. With 20 presets, you can quickly access all your favorite stations.

Auxiliary Input to Connect Other Devices

An MP3 link connection lets you plug in MP3 players, CD players, or anything else with a line out. So if you have devices other than an iPod or iPhone, like a non-docking iPod shuffle, you can still enjoy your music over the system's speakers.

Compatibility Information

The Philips clock radio is compatible with iPod touch; iPod touch 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generations; iPod nano 1st through 6th generations; iPod 5th generation; iPod classic; iPod mini; iPod with color display; and iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4s.

Warranty Information

The Philips docking system is covered by a limited one-year warranty.

NOTE 11/27/2012: This Speaker Dock WILL NOT WORK with the latest generation iPods with the new Apple Lightning to USB Cable connectors. You may have to purchase an adaptor from Apple to be able to use this speaker dock or any other product with the old connector.

If, however, you own an older iPod, this is a nice quality system for the price. It offers a variety of features and accomplishes most of them proficiently.

These days you can define an electronic device by what is does and by what it does not do. Phillips describes this product as a clock radio with a docking system for an iPod/iPhone. As far as I am concerned, the docking system for the iPod/iPhone is the strongest feature.

Not only will the device charge an iPod and play music stored in iTunes, it promises to fit any model iPod/iPhone without the need for extra attachments of any kind. I tried the system with three trusty household iPods: an iPod/video (long in the tooth but with an entire family's music collection stored within), a 4th generation Nano (my personal favorite and purple), and an iPod Touch (2nd or possibly 3rd generation). All iPods are in cases and all these iPods fit the docking system easily without the need to remove its case. As far as I am concerned, this alone is worth the price of admission.

I was able to easily navigate the menus and playlists and raise and lower the sound volume of all three model iPods using the system's controls as well as the provided little remote control. Navigating around the iPod/Video was a bit pokey, but nothing terrible. The Nano was next in responsiveness. The iPod Touch worked the best and I was able to navigate around many of its features.

If you live in the world of Apple like myself & my family, then this is the clock for you. The iPhone, iPad, & iPod can all charge and play from this. My family had a party and instead of making a mix CD for the occasion we were able to play music all night from the iPod. The sound is good. Has a lot of bass behind it. The programming took me a while to catch onto. However, it stores the info even when you unplug it. The blue light is very bright, I cover it up at night or else it makes the room glow blue. Overall, great device if you are an Apple user.

The Philips Docking System for iPod and iPhone is an attractive unit that serves as an iPod dock -- recharging your device when it's plugged in -- and an alarm clock radio. It performs the functions you'd expect from a clock radio: it has two alarms (with buzzer/radio/dock options) and snooze (9 mins.) and sleep functions. And the unit has some nice features: It grabs the time from your iPod so you don't have to set it manually (although you can). It has room for 20 preset FM stations which can be set either automatically or manually. It comes with a remote that seems to operate very smoothly. And it's great that the device can work with a range of iPod cases.

The device does have some issues, however, that prevent me from recommending it wholeheartedly.

1. This may well be -- perhaps almost certainly is -- a problem unique to the unit I received, however, the buzzer on both alarms is barely audible. You can hear it if you put your ear up against the unit, but there's no way it could wake anyone up. Since the alarm type will default to buzzer if you've selected dock (iPod) but don't have your iPod plugged in, that means that you have to be very careful to either select radio as your alarm preference or plug in your iPod before going to sleep.

2. The alarm buttons you have to push to turn off the alarm are flush with the top of the machine and thus very difficult to find by touch alone.

3. The connector that you plug your iPod into is spring loaded. This is nice in one sense, because when connected your iPod is pushed to the rear, securely nestled against a rubber nub that protrudes slightly from the speakers. But in order to plug in your iPod you have to push the connector forward, then seat the iPod on top of it.

I just ordered this speaker dock yesterday morning from Amazon LLC and received the item this morning. Amazon Prime is awesome!

I've been using the speakers all morning and have tested the radio capability, the iPod nano (4th gen), the iPod Touch (2nd gen), as well as the iPhone 4s. All of them work perfectly. I haven't had a problem using any of these devices but as you can tell, I have not tried using any non-Apple products.

The sound that projects from these speakers is phenomenal, especially for the price I paid for them. I don't know all the logistics and technicality of speakers but the sound is real crisp, clear and the bass is good. I'm only using them for general listening purposes. I'm not using it for watching movies, mixing music or editing audio, so I can't speak for these purposes but it's perfect for what I want.

The remote is also very handy and works well! The battery is already included in the remote.

The box says that there is a limited one year warranty. I wonder if they will replace the speaker if it malfunctions. If I have any other issues as time goes on, I'll update this review. For now, I absolutely recommend this product!
