I had an old white basic radio alarm clock – you know the kind – it sticks out like a tacky chachkie on your night stand. So, I was glad to find this. And, when it arrived I was very pleased. It fits the bill all the way and looks great on my night stand next to a mercury glass table lamp.
My other favorite things about it – I get to wake up to my favorite radio station, the display can be dimmed, easy to understand instructions and set-up, the alarm can be set to just go off on weekdays (no turning the alarm off for the weekend and remembering on Sunday to turn it back on), it has rubber feet on the bottom, sound quality is good – without being prompted even my man mentioned that it sounded good.
09/12/2015 Update - I liked this so much I purchased another one for my desk at work.
11/08/2015 Update - I also like that it has an USB jack on the back for plugging a charging cord into. I now keep a charging cord plugged into it all the time which makes it so easy to charge my devices at home and at the office. No more fishing for a dropped cord!
I've had many over the years, and this is a very good one.
This is a very nice clock-radio with a fairly small night-stand footprint. The sound is really rather good (though not, say, Bose quality). It has a
battery back-up (in the form of a small, button battery). The dimming feature is really nice (and a must given the default setting it too bright to me).
The alarm or music comes on gradually and doesn't jar as much as it could (which is nice - but I think you can change that too).
Hooking up of a phone (or other device is easy) as a charger worked fine with my Android. However, I have not tried pairing the clock-radio with another blue-tooth device (but this is a feature of the unit).
Programming is very intuitive and really didn't even require the directions (though the directions are very good and simple). You can program the alarm or alarm-radio to only work on weekdays if you like.
The radio turns itself off after 1 hour.
Because the unit was boxed up and one couldn't see the various surfaces in
the photos prior to buying, I've taken a few:
a) the top showing the controls.
b) the back showing the USB, antenna, etc. connections.
c) the bottom showing the battery compartment.
I purchased this clock radio for use in a small apartment bedroom with poor acoustics. Normally I would opt for a full stereo system, but the high-frequency reflections in the room make that impossible without room treatment. I opted to replace my ancient clock radio with a bluetooth enabled model for Spotify Premium streaming, and FM tuner use.
Initial thoughts on audio quality:
This thing sounds *pretty* good. Don't expect any bass under 100hz, and 3khz to 5khz is definitely hyped (although the room is exaggerating that problem). I was able to "corner load" the clock radio on a desk in the corner of the room and that helped fill out the low end a bit.
There are 3 EQ options - normal, bright, and "warm." Bright accentuates the high frequencies and did not work well in my room. Normal sounds good, but was a bit too hyped in the upper-midrange. I settled on "warm," which seems to accentuate the lower midrange (500hz-ish) and attenuate the upper-midrange frequencies. It sounds a little dull compared to normal in my room, but it's the better of the two options. I wish this radio had a full 3-band EQ, but ultimately I'm satisfied with the sound quality for the price.
Thoughts on usability:
There are some reviews that complain about how difficult this thing is to use - that has not been my experience so far. The manual provides step by step instructions going through each function, and the layout and button functions are sensible.
I like the ability to set up 2 separate alarms with the option to set them for weekdays, weekends, a specific day, or every day. You can wake up to an alarm, FM radio, or Bluetooth (haven't tried this yet), and you can easily set the volume using the digital display. The radio fades up to the set volume and won't startle you awake.
The FM radio sounds OK - not the best tuner in the world but it's tricky to get good FM reception in my room anyways. The absence of an AM tuner doesn't matter much to me.
Bluetooth streaming works well, and pairing is simple.
Overall I'm happy with this purchase. Don't expect stellar sound quality, but for what it is (a tiny clock radio), I'm impressed.
