Dual alarm with weekday and weekend settings
Designed with modern day lifestyles in mind, this clock radio has a dual alarm feature, allowing you to set different alarm times for weekdays and weekends or even vary the alarm settings for couples. The alarm settings can be tailored for the same alarm times for the entire week from Monday to Sunday. Or you can set the alarm for an early start on weekdays from Monday to Friday, and lazy lie-ins for Saturday and Sundays. Whichever you choose, there's no need to fiddle with setting different alarm times every single night.
Gentle wake up call with an increasing alarm volume
Nobody likes to be jarred out of sweet slumber, so the DC315 features a gradually increasing alarm volume.
Rich and clear sound experience
Bass Reflex speakers deliver a powerful, deeper 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 optimize the low frequency roll-off of the system. The result is deeper controlled bass and lower distortion. The system works by resonating the air mass in the bass pipe to vibrate like a conventional woofer, extending the low end.

Here were the criteria I went by:
1) Below $100
2) Easy to use Radio docking station
3) Slick design to put on my desk - not too big but yet suitiable to put on the desk with decent sound quality
4) While listening to music from the iPhone the music should stop playing so that I can take a call AND after the call is over I want to get the music to be turned back on where it stopped
5) Easy to use the iPhone from the docking station to dial numbers without breaking anything (most of the docking stations are a bit clunky when you try to put in the iPhone and then try to call people - you always have to use two hands to ensure the iPhone doesnt break anything on the docking connection).
After using it for a few weeks now all of the creteria are met in my opinion.
My biggest liking is actually how easy I can plug my iPhone into the radio docking station and can actually use the phone, look up contacts, do calls, etc with just one hand. Since it is right next to me I can simply use one hand to operate this little device. Unfortunatley (and I hope to see this feature in the future) the radio speakers are not turned on when someone calls... but I have the staion in arms length and the iPone speaeker do a good job or alternatlively I use the headset.
Also I use the iPhone as a wireless radio and with the iPhone in the docking station it becomes my wirelss radio so to speak. I have Pandora and other online radion service through the Apps provided by Apple. And in that instance the speakers do work!Read more ›
As with the other unit I like the alarm with it's ascending volume. It is the gentlest wake-up I've gotten from a machine. The sound is pretty good overall with some amount of bass and decent balance. However although the sound is better than a typical clock radio, it is not as quite as good as the DC320 in terms of detail and stereo imaging. But it is able to play louder than the DC320 without gross bass distortion. There are some other issues. One of the segments in the secondary display below the clock doesn't work. Fortunately it is in a position that is only used for radio frequency displays and I can live with it considering the annoyance of returning a mail ordered item (another review of a similar Philips item I read cites a similar display problem - interesting).Read more ›
- The sound really is surprisingly good, and gets fairly loud without distortion. This, combined with the low severity of the Cons, is why I'm keeping it.
- The display is a nice color and brightness. The middle of three settings works day or night.
- Overall it looks nice and is a little more understated than it looks in the product photos.
- While it doesn't have a backup battery, it apparently has some kind of capacitor instead. I.e., it will keep time during a power outage, even without a backup battery. How long is anyone's guess, and it's not mentioned in the manual, but I unplugged mine for 15 minutes to position it where I wanted it and it kept the time. That's a good thing.
- The buttons are ridiculous. You simply must memorize where they all are, and you can't tell them apart by feel either. The whole top and left are covered in a bar of buttons (crazy because there are really only three on top and four on the left side), making it somewhat hard to dock the iPhone. Everywhere you want to touch to stabilize the clock is actually a button. Fortunately the unit weighs just enough that you can usually just push down on the phone, as long as you line it up carefully.
- The build quality of the face is poor. The face is a plastic sheet that's glued on, and it's peeling up from the edges. It's not noticeable unless I look carefully, but it's not really reasonable on an $80+ clock-radio.
- If you have the phone plugged in, and turn on the power (i.e., the speakers, as the clock is always on), it starts playing music on the phone's iPod app.Read more ›
