Digital Tune AM/FM Radio

iPod Docking Station
The iC308B features a certified iPod Connector for docking your iPod. The recharge circuit charges your device while it's docked, and included are brackets for fitting the different iPod models. While it's docked, you can control your iPod from the iC308B control panel.
Wake to iPod, radio, buzzer, white noise, or nature sounds with the digital alarm clock/radio. Four nature sounds are included: bird singing, river, ocean, and summer night.
The dual alarm means you can set multiple wake times, and the standard snooze/sleep functions are included. If there's a power outage, battery backup will keep you on time.
LCD and Projection Display
Check the time on the face of the iC308B using the blue backlit 0.8-inch segment LCD with dimmer control.
Even cooler is the red projection display, which enables you to display the time on your ceiling, wall, or wherever you see fit. The display has a 90 degree adjustment range.
Have a more intimate listen with the stereo headphone jack, and use the auxiliary 3.5-mm line-in jack to connect auxiliary devices, such as MP3 or CD players.

1. Whenever you turn it on, the volume is always set at 20. This is really loud! I expected there to be some sort of 'volume memory'; when I set it at level 10, it should stay at level 10 when I turn it on the next time. It doesn't.
2. The nature sounds have a very clear "silent pause" when the sound loops. This is quite annoying to listen to a silent moment every 20 seconds when I'm trying to relax.
3. The digital time projection states in the manual that it is reversible. It isn't. When it's projected on the ceiling with the clock next to my bed, the projection is upside down. I should be able to reverse it, but I can't.
4. Customer service is virtually non-existent. The website only has .pdf versions of the instruction manual included with the item (which is woefully lacking). They do not have a toll-free support line, so be prepared to pay for a long-distance call. I called their customer service line to address my concerns, spent 40 minutes on hold, then was transferred to the voice mail of someone with a very thick Indian accent. Waste of time and money- thanks iLive!
I've returned this item. Don't make the same mistake I did by purchasing this POS!
I bought this and it broke down just in a few days. Then I called them, they give me a replacement.
Then here comes the second one, the first sight I saw it, I feel it's not a new one!! There's a painting peeling off and the right corner of the metal part in the front is like having been hit somewhere.
Anyway, I though it's ok as long as it works, but it doesn't!!! The radio works at the beginning, but when I came back one day, it broke down completely again!! The same problem as the first one.
So I called them again, but they said they can't give me free shipping again. I have to pay the shipping fee myself!!
That's ridiculous!!! I don't think I did anything wrong. This thing not only wastes a lot of time and also I have to pay for it without getting anything!
They didn't tell me there's only one free shipping, or I would definetly ask a refund in the first time!
So my suggestion is don't buy this stuff.
Despite the 'back-lit' time display (instead of a dark background and bright blue numbers like the iSound Spa has), the makers of this unit have a very minimal idea of what "dimming" is considered. Pretty much, you're options are, 1) blindingly bright or 2) not as bright but still way too bright for sleeping. My husband has a clock/radio with a similar back-lit display, but his has a dial along the side that allows a much broader spectrum of dimming (even to the point where you can turn the back-lighting completely off). I was expecting this to be similar based on the fact they have the same front display lighting system. I know I'm harping on this, but there's nothing more aggravating than trying to fall asleep with something as bright as a night lite sitting right next to you on the bedside table.
One other thing I didn't care for was that the projection display is red numbers instead of blue, like the iSound Spa has. It may be that the red light might be less "bright" than the blue light at night, but I cannot say for sure. After taking the iLive out of the box, setting it up and finding there was no way to really dim the front display, I put it right back into the box, and will be returning it.
Another thing I noticed, which I could imagine would be quite a problem for many people, is the volume. For some reason, no matter what you have the volume set at when you turn the radio/iPod/nature sounds off, when you turn it back on, it jumps right back up to 20! (which trust me, is very loud! I might even venture to say you could hear it over a hair-dryer or small vacuum.) Nowhere in the manual could I find anything relating to this issue. And since I'm not one for getting blasted by ear-shattering volume as a form of being woken up, it's another reason this unit is being returned ASAP.
If you don't have a problem falling asleep with bright lighting, and don't mind the volume thing, this is a pretty good option for a Clock/Radio/NatureSound/iPod dual alarm with time projection... granted it is 1 of only 2 options with all those features I have found so far. If there was more control over the back-lite dimming, and a more reasonable volume "memory", I would happily rate this much higher, but for the price, I'll just stick with my old iSound Spa and keep looking for more options down the line...
