Do most iPod speaker systems look a little too modern (read: stale) for your decor? Turn to the Eton Sound 100 system, which pays tribute to the retro glamour of radios past with swooping, curved lines and a stylish front control panel. The radio is designed expressly for iPods, with an external docking station that holds and charges all iPods with 30-pin dock connectors, including the iPod 3G, iPod 4G, iPod photo, iPod video, iPod nano 1G and 2G, and iPod mini. Simply plop your iPod into the dock and you can enjoy all your favorite tunes and playlists within seconds--no additional connections required.



The retro-styled Sound 100 includes an external iPod docking station that plays and charges most iPods.
Eton is recognized internationally for the quality of its radios, which is why the company added a high-sensitivity digital Phased-Locked-Loop (PLL) AM/FM tuner to the Sound 100. The advanced circuitry not only searches instinctively for the strongest station, but also locks in the frequency once it finds the signal to guarantee superior clarity. As a result, the radio's reception is crystal clear whether you're listening to the ballgame, catching up on the news, or kicking back to some classic jazz. To make tuning quicker and easier, the radio also includes five AM and five FM station presets.

Audio-wise, the Sound 100 is equipped with a 3-inch, full-range, front-firing speaker that produces distortion-free, room-filling sound with a wide range of frequencies (80 Hz to 20 kHz). The 16-character, two-line LCD display, meanwhile, offers a viewing area of 2.4 by 0.98 inches (W x H), with a gentle blue backlight that won't keep you awake during the midnight hours. And despite the display's relatively small size, it still shows quite a bit of data, including the time, selected station, alarm status, sleep status, band, and preset information.



The system includes such rear jacks as a 3.5 mm auxiliary input, a 3.5 mm line out, a headphone port, and an FM antenna jack.
Unlike many iPod speaker systems, the Sound 100 also handily replaces your bedside clock radio, with alarm, sleep, and snooze controls. Among the options are 12- and 24-hour formats, an alarm that wakes to either the radio or a buzzer, a programmable sleep timer (between 15 and 90 minutes), and a 5-minute snooze duration. And even though the Sound 100 is designed for iPods, it also includes a 3.5 mm auxiliary input for connecting a separate MP3 player or personal CD player, along with a 3.5 mm auxiliary line out.

Additional features include an encoder volume control, a headphone jack for private listening, a battery backup function (requires two AA batteries), a remote control, a 360-degree pigtail FM antenna, a built-in external loop AM antenna, and rubber feet on the bottom to prevent scratching and movement. The Eton Sound 100 measures 8.27 by 4.53 by 5.1 inches (W x H x D), weighs 2.82 pounds, and carries a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

The screen is hard to read; you have to be right in front of it.

This may be a peculiarity of our household, but often when the radio comes on and wakes us up, we like to turn down the volume and listen as we wake up.
adroitus
It has a wire FM antenna that works fine and has RDS that tells you what radio station you are on and what song is playing.

The Sound 100 iPod Dock is the latest in Eton's product family. As a stand-alone radio this device is average. With the iPod dock this unit is a cut above and one you must consider.

They do sell this device without the iPod dock, and it ranges from being $30 to $50 less than this model. I don't believe it's worth getting this unit without the iPod dock.
Eton Sound 100 AM/FM Radio, Silver

There are many iPod radios and alarm clocks on the market which may be able to compete against the Sound 100 iPod on price. The iHome and iLive models come to mind.
iHome iH6 Clock Radio for iPod (White)
iHome iH5 Clock Radio for iPod (Black)
iLive ICR6307DT iPod Docking System with Digital Tune AM/FM Stereo Dual Alarm Clock Radio with Remote Control in White

The competition does not come close on engineering. The remote allows you to completely control your iPod! That means menu control and navigation in addition to the standard FF, RW, PLAY, STOP, and PAUSE funcitons. This is so simple, yet few devices have this ability. The Line-in and auxiliary jacks can connect other MP3 players (Creative, Zune) sans the menu control.

The speaker is monaural, but optimized to prevent distortion. At the highest volume the sound gets tinny but doesn't hiss. If you like modern design, the Eton is one of the best looking.

The Sound 100 iPod Dock comes in black and white. The radio only version adds other colors including silver, blue and red. I've had the white one for a while and I've been pretty happy with it. This Black Etón Sound 100 iPod Dock is very similar, but loses points for the non-black speaker face. As a stand-alone radio this device is average. But the stellar iPod dock integration makes this unit a cut above and one you must consider.

Without the iPod dock the unit ranges from being $30 to $50 less than this model. I don't believe it's worth getting this unit without the iPod dock. Still, they have been having periodic sales for the stand-alone model in the $30 range, which is very hard to pass up.

Most of the shortcomings are from the radio aspect of this device. The internal AM antenna is below average.

The sound quality is what I was looking for, with a radio and iPod dock. I like the remote, nice and lightweight and doesn't hit the floor very hard when it falls off the bed. Where this gadget falls short is on the clock radio features. I can't hardly read the clock from even a short distance away. If I take my glasses off, which I often do when I sleep, I literally have to stick my face within about 3 inches of the clock to read it. When the radio alarm goes off, the time display changes to the radio station, so you need to turn the alarm off or snooze it to see what time it is. If they could make this product with comparable features to a $20 alarm clock, it would be excellent. I'm currently in the market for a small digital clock that matches the radio so I have all the usable features I need.

I purchased this clock radio with iPod dock because I have been looking for something to replace our clock radio in the bedroom. It is impossible to listen to commercial radio any more unless you are doing something boring, like cleaning, because of all the advertising and mindless babbling that takes up at least twenty minues of every hour. So, I wanted something that sounded good, that I could play my own choice of music on, and could wake me up in the morning to talk radio (usually NPR) without costing an arm and a leg.

When I saw the price drop on the Eton Sound 100 iPod Dock, I thought I had found exactly what I wanted. It had all the features I was looking for, and was now affordable. (The link I found to it--I can't locate it now--said that the deal was good for twenty-four hours only, which is not the case.) I talked my wife into it, and ordered it.

A few days later it arrived and I set it up. Tuner sensitivity was good even without the FM antenna attached, the remote worked, and the sound was good for such a small box. Sound volume was good for our small bedroom. It uses a ported system to enhance the bass, so it seems a little sensitive to placement in relation to the walls and corners, but I was happy with it. I scanned through the local stations, and got some presets in. All seemed good.

Once the novelty had worn off, and I started trying to use it the way our old clock radio had been used, its shortcommings were revealed.

From across the room, the LCD display is washed out by the bright blue backlight, even after it automatically dims when you stop adjusting the controls. My wife thinks the light from the display is almost too bright to sleep with.
