1-0 out of 5 stars This gets 1 star because 0 stars is not an option to choose!
WOAH...if you have to sleep in darkness, you'll have insomnia. SOOOOOOO BRIGHT! My husband walked in the room and said it was like walking into a spaceship (or something) because the entire room was blue, and it was on the lowest brightness setting! Also, the alarm didn't work after the first morning. On day two I was late for work. Later that afternoon, I tested the alarm and it didn't work on any of the test runs, either. WHAT A BUNCH OF HOOEY, LOL. (Keep the receipt!)

1-0 out of 5 stars night light
When i bought this alarm clock, i thought it looked modern, especially with the blue light and color but i made the biggest mistake! it does not let me sleep at night because it iluminates my whole room. i tried all the ways for it not to be so bright, i put tissue over it, i turn it the other way but it iluminates the whole wall, the only thing that worked for me is putting it face down, but then that defeats the purpose of having a clock. the radio only plays certain stations and usually i have to position it in funny positions to get the station i want to hear. i wished i would have returned it when i could have. it hurts me to throw money away when i could of bought a cheaper and uglier one and be happy. please dont buy it if you want to sleep comfortably.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bad (but fixable) radio reception
Yes, the display of this clock radio is really BRIGHT even when put on dim. The "out-of-box" radio reception is really poor. The antenna is buried inside the radio and does not work real well. I placed the clock radio besides another radio and could not pick up the stations I wanted to hear.<br /> <br /> Emerson didn't offer any help. All they said is to return it to Target. <br /> <br /> Being an electronics person, I decided to see why the radio has such poor reception. The antenna is wrapped around the power cord. A little unwrapping, re-routing the antenna, and extending it outside the enclosure yields the best reception from a clock radio I've ever had! One has to wonder why Emerson wouldn't do this to get better reception?<br /> <br /> Emerson, Target and I will warn you not to open the enclosure unless you really know what you're doing!!<br /> <br />

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Bad!!
This is the everything-gone-wrong clock! The number display is so bright that I have to turn it away from me while I sleep. The buttons and settings don't work very well. Also, the alarm hasn't been very dependable--it often goes off at random times in the night and fails to go off at the set time for morning.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cool clock
This clock is not very bright you can dim the display. You can also set two different alarms and choose either radio or alarm for both. It is very convenient for someone who does not always get up at the same time everyday. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Cheaper on Ebay
I like the overall looks of my stereo, very cool!!!!!!!! For how my parents spent on it, $399.00 ouch! But it's on Ebay for less, but it's worth the money. Plays mp3's so I have music for hours.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great looking, pleasing performance
Having read the reviews below, I feel compelled to set the record straight.

First, the speakers DO produce bass. It's not the overwhelming blowout hip hop concert kind, but it's bass nonetheless. If you want spine-tingling lows, get a more expensive system -- or one with a subwoofer. Or, better yet, adjust the bass on this system up a step or two. I'm pretty picky when it comes to audio (I also own a pair of B&Ws) and I'm pleased with the overall sound from these speakers.

Second, the system really does look great. One reviewer said it's impossible to turn off the display light. That's not true. Hold down the power button, and the display light turns off completely. Five stars for looks.

The features are great too. I wont go into too much detail here; you can read about that stuff online. I personally like the gradually increasing volume on the alarm (which will wake you up to your favorite CD).

Finally, my complaint: the remote control, which you WILL use, just sucks. It is not backlit, and its shape is such that you have no way of telling which buttons you're hitting in the dark (the buttons are indistinguishable from one another by feel). Result: it's really hard to use the remote at night in bed. This is an example of design run amok.

Otherwise I'm happy with the thing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay Away!
This system is WAY too expensive. I considered buying one until i actually heard it.
There is NO BASS!!! So you have to buy a subwoofer if you want good sound from it.
If you add it up(400 for the stereo, 300 for a decent subwoofer) 700 BUCKS!

4-0 out of 5 stars Apple colored, Apple influenced mini-system
If Apple designed a mini-system this would be it. It's a well constructed unit and it's funky appearance looks better in person than it does in the pictures. What they don't show is an external black box amplifier so this is really a four piece system. Might as well call it a five piece system because you're probably going to want to buy a powered subwoofer. The overall sound quality is quite good despite the lack of bass. It plays discs of MP3 well with minimal seek time (no id3 info though). The controls are also minimal with some, like the dim function almost useless. The small display is so bright, even when turned off, that I have to throw a t-shirt over it to sleep. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent design-features-quality-value balance!
I have been shopping for several months for an under-cabinet LCD TV to replace our 18-year-old 5" RCA tube-type TV in our kitchen, which has served us well but has developed annoying on/off button problems and now looks old, clunky out-of-date.

Our requirements for a replacement unit were as follows:
1. Small, sleek, unobtrusive, LCD design that would blend in under our white cabinets
2. CD player so my wife could enjoy her books-on-CD in the kitchen (DVD and radio would be a plus but not essential)
3. We wanted to be able to view both local channels as well as satellite channels without needing to also install a DirecTV decoder box (this would take additional space -defeating our compactness goal -- and require more complicated wiring, not to mention monthly charges).
4. Quality (and warranty) that would ensure it would last several years.
5. Price under $500.
6. Given the limited selection and the poor quality reviews on other models, I needed to be able to examine it in person before buying.

I looked at these options:

1. Audiovox VE-1020 (and its older/smaller siblings). It way too pricey at $600-700 and read too many 'poor' reviews on audio quality and overall durability.
2. RCA BLC524: Screen too small, and 'poor' quality reviews, plus could not find it in a retail store.
3. Motorola/Moxell Tech KA-A13: Sounded good, reliable manufacturer, but could only find its announcement as it is not yet available.
4. Standalone 13" LCD (Gateway, Aquous, Sharp) with a separate swivel mounting bracket. I eliminated this option early because it would be too large, too expensive (~$100 for the bracket alone!), and it most cases would not include a CD player.

I bought the Sony as soon as I found its availability was advertised at a local electronics retail store. Bought it with an inexpensive 5-year extended warranty.

It's been in place for 2 weeks and we *like* it - it is living up to expectations, despite a couple of design flaws -- the absence of which would have earned the unit *five* stars.

First the flaws-all minor:

1. Fit and connections. As an earlier reviewer on this site pointed out, its installation is a tight fit under our cabinets, leaving only about an inch clearance to plug in the coax and a/v connectors. But this was easily remedied by purchasing right-angle adapters (Radio Shack, $4 each) that can be screwed in after installation with the 1" clearance. These redirect the cable and RCA connectors downward, making attaching the cables post-installation easy. Sony would do well to include these right-angle adapters.

2. Installation instructions. The alternative is to connect all your cables *prior* to installing the unit - something the instructions did not point out. In fact, the instructions could be improved in various areas. For instance, while the unit comes with variable-depth spacers so that installation under cabinets with doors that overhang the cabinet bottom, if you have flush-mounted doors (as we do), you *don't* want to use the spacers at all. Well, the instructions don't suggest this option, leaving you to think that the spacers are required in all cases. For me, this meant re-installing without the spacers, a minor hassle.

3. No built-in TV antenna. Unlike our old RCA, this unit does not have a built-in extending-wand antenna. This makes it a *requirement* that you connect TV and/or A/V inputs to another signal source to receive *anything* on the TV. While many people may be planning to do this, it *does* raise the ante on hooking it up. Sony would have a more versatile product for less experienced people if they included an optional "single rabbit ear" antenna that could be plugged into the TV/cable connector.

Now the good features:

1. TV: Sharp, noise-free wide-format picture, with settable options for standard 3x4 picture size and two wide-format variations. Just the right size. When not in used, screen is easily folded into a cavity under the unit and latches mechanically (more securely than magnetically, which may also wear out).

2. Sound: Perfect for TV viewing and CD story listening, and quite decent for FM or CD music, both in volume and fidelity. Two 3" speakers main the sound forward and downward, and the bass extender works as advertised. As long as you don't expect home theatre quality sound from this unit, you should be quite satisfied.

3. CD Player: Quality feel of its slide-out tray. Plays commercial and my home-recorded MP3s flawlessly.

4. Remote: Small, intuitive, well-constructed. Its bottom magnet attaches to our refrigerator nicely.

5. AM/FM presets: 5 of each, easily set, with manual tuning buttons on the unit and the remote.

6. TV/Video switch: Easily switches from the antenna/cable input to the a/v inputs. This is important, as the way we wired the unit, it only takes my technology-challenged wife one button click to switch from local channels to satellite channels coming in from our home theatre system.

7. Clock: Intuitive and easily set.

8. Timer: Doubt we will use - or care about -- this feature.

Bottom line: We like it a lot, both how it looks and how it works. The Sony name (and their 1-year manufacturer's warranty) - coupled with the inexpensive 5-year extended warranty we bought - should give us several good years of service...until it is again technologically out-of-date and needs upgrading again!

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I was very disappointed when the machine would not fit! It was exactly the depth of the cabinet, which prevented us from being able to attach the cable to the back. Why in the world didn't the design take in to consideration the hookups could NOT be on the back against the wall? I would have just loved it, but Oh Well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Just perfect!
After researching, looking at, and buying (then returning) several compact CD/Radio combos (I wanted it to go from kitchen to bathroom, but didn't have room for a boombox) I can finally rest. The Sony Liv Shower Radio is small, easily carried around with its attached handle, and has great sound--no distortion as volume is increased, and no background fuzziness. The one quibble, which I only noticed in the store as I compared it to the matching new Sony Dream Machine CD player, is that the Dream Machine gets much louder and still maintains the integrity of sound--but you have to plug it in, so you aren't going to be carrying it anywhere. That being said, mine is in the kitchen right now on a low-to-middle volume setting, and I can hear it out here in the living room--so it's loud enough, for sure. Love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
The Sony Liv Shower Cd Player/clock radio has far exceeded my expectations. I live in a rural area, and with other radios, I have always had trouble bringing in stations clearly. The Sony Liv has clear, crisp sound, excellent fine tuning, and the CD Player and clock are an added bonus! It's an excellent package.

I highly recommend this product and would not hesitate to purchase another.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT product!
After reading many reviews on many different shower radios, this was the only shower/radio/cd player I've found with good reviews, so I decided to buy it. I love it! It's nice being able to listen to the news in the morning in the shower, and the sound quality is great, totally clear. The only cons Ive found is the price, but it IS worth it, and the volume doesnt go up as high as Id like. Other than that, it's the best Ive found.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Shower Radio
Pros: Reception, Features, all digital, looks, build like a tank.
Cons: Price.

I picked this up to replace a piece of junk Curtis shower radio I bought my wife from Best Buy. She was so dissapointed in the Curtis because no stations would come in on its analog tuner.
The Sony was everything the cheaper Curtis wasn't. It is fully digital including the tuner. It has an external antenna and the reception is great. It sounds great for a littler radio with a even a bit of bass. The auto off feature will let you turn this thing on first thing in the morning and not worry about draining the batteries by leaving it on all day. Aditionally, it comes with a rope strap that will let you hang it from about anything. It is a bit on the heavy side because it is built solid as a rock.
The final word is I am super pleased with this little radio. My only gripe is the price: ... ouch. But if you believe that you get what you pay for... ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This sleek, self-setting atomic clock radio offers a blend of style, features, and performance that will perfectly accent any home or office. The clock automatically adjusts itself to radio signals received from the U.S. atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado, so you're always ensured accurate and reliable time. It even makes adjustments for Daylight Savings time.

A easy-to-read LCD shows time, date, and day of the week, as well as sleep times, wake times, and--of course--nap times. The RCR-1 also boasts an inset, German-made analog clock for easier reading, which synchronizes itself with the LCD's displayed time.

Living with someone else who needs an alarm? You can set and use the RCR-1's two alarms completely independently, with selectable days and the option to wake to a radio or buzzer. The alarm volume starts softly then gradually increases. The radio's ATS system locates stations and automatically establishes memory presets.What's in the Box

2-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't live up to the Description
The atomic clock signal is weak and not near as stong as two other recent purchases from Seiko. The instructions are terrible and not very helpful. Making any kind of adjustments requires the reader to carefully follow all the steps as outlined which seems fine except just turning off the alarm in case you get up early or just want to cancel it is a major pain. The humane waking is system is overrated. Yes, it gets louder in increments but very quickly and not as slow as described. I would consider another alternative.

2-0 out of 5 stars The atomic clock is a phoney!
I called Sangean to find out why the time was not synchronizing, to which the technician replied, "Well it's not the strongest atomic clock there is..." Then when I explained what I had done to test it, he was arrogant, unhelpful, and not in too many words told me tough luck!

Just for the record, I purchased another clock from Radio Shack (which they don't sell anymore, or I would have bought another one of those!), which works perfectly fine.

What a ruse!

1-0 out of 5 stars Too bad about the backlighting...
This clock radio has it all... almost. The Atomic clock synched right up, the sound is quite good, I like the "Nap" feature and the ability to set two alarms to two different times on each different day of the week is cool.

So, I set it all up and put in my bedroom and when it got dark I realized the radio was useless to me - no matter how you set the backlighting brightness display you have to get right on top of the clock to read the display. So trying to set the nap timer or the sleep timer or change the alarm settings, after dark, becomes almost impossible. When you turn up the brightness the numerals just stay the same and the backlighting just gets brighter and glares in your face.

The manual leaves a bit to be desired too and just ignores features like backup (which it seems to have because when you disconnect from power the clock continues to display and the setting are saved; I just have no idea how long and if that feature is something I can count on).

Bottom line is I would surely keep the clock if I could only read it at night.... but I can't; so back it goes. Too bad.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this clock
This alarm clock has everything I wanted packed in a sleek unit: 2 alarms which you can individually set the days you want each of them to go off and what alarm type you want (radio, buzzer), GREAT sound, accurate time, internal battery back-up, display dimmer (can even be turned off), analog and digital displays, nap timer, and sleep timer. The atomic clock display set within 2 hours and the sound is amazing for an alarm clock (you can't beat it in this price range). I also love how the alarm gradually increases so you are not startled out of bed.

I agree with everyone regarding the instruction manual, but found everyone's feedback here to be helpful in figuring it out. It wasn't too bad, fairly intuitive to set up. I highly recommend this product.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Clock Radio; Not Great
The radio reception, nap feature, and humane waking system are great on this clock radio. However, I did not like the time display.

The reception in my area was not ideal for an atomic clock. Also, inclement weather can affect its performance, too.

The instruction booklet didn't note that the speaker symbol on the display means that the radio will wake you nor that the clock has an internal battery that saves your settings in the event of power interruption. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Old-fashioned volume knob!
How many times have you cursed the almost ubiquitous little volume "up" and "down" arrows on most new electronics? They are hard to press and they take forever to adjust. Here's your chance to get a decent under-cabinet clock/radio with a large, simple, functional volume knob located conveniently on the side. That alone is reason to give this unit serious consideration. I actually purchased this for my garage to go under the cabinets above my workbench (I have the Salton "ICEbox" in the kitchen, but that's over 2 grand). Its only weak point is the speaker output is not quite powerful enough - at higher volumes, distortion becomes evident. However, at most normal listening volumes, it sounds fine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Careful what you wish for.
I gave one of these to my wife six months ago, after being less than impressed by reviews of the equivalent GE product. Basically, I wanted something that would pull in her 3 public radio stations and offer me incentive to feed the cats. Trouble is, the darn thing requires installation--which took me 4-5 hours not counting the five months I simply thought about doing it.

The pluses: It seems very solid and durable, is a no-brainer to operate, and produces relatively high-frequency (if a bit hollow-sounding) fidelity.

Minuses: It's deeper than I'd bargained for. The only under-the-cabinet space that would accommodate it was in a corner. Curiously, Sony's instructions warn against installing it near florescent lighting. (What are you supposed to do--rewire your kitchen?) This may explain why radio reception, while decent, is hardly startling. Only by fiddling with the electrical cord (which does double duty as an antenna) can I get acceptable sound on most of the fringe (40-70 miles out) stations. If only manufacturers would scrap some of the automatic features and station memory banks in favor of more sensitive and selective tuners. And, true, the unit has a "mega-bass" switch with a single setting--but does anyone remember the days when radios came with a handy little knob called a "tone control"?

All in all, a well-made product offering solid performance and value. An excellent gift for the handyman in the family.

This is a great item! No trouble with installation. Great sound from the radio and also the cd player. Very easy to use! The price just can't be beat. I am very happy with this product and would highly recommend it!

I installed this product in my kitchen last night. It looks good and also sounds very good. Both AM and FM reception is great on all my favorite stations. It is simple to install, program and operate. I highly recommend it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not pefect
I was looking to replace a 20 year old GE 4880 clock radio - it had a numeric keypad for entering times and radio frequencies. Very easy to set up a different time. The SOny looked to be a good replacement. So far, it's doing a good job but there are a few shortcomings.

Pro:
Two alarms
Easy to set times
Easy to tell which alarms are active
Each alarm can use a different radio station
Auto time set works well

Con:
So-so fidelity - needs a better speaker
Display hard to see unless at right angle
Too easy to accidently move volume control

4-0 out of 5 stars Sony ICFC275RC - error in the manual on ours
First off, the clock itself seems to be great and has all the bells and whistles we wanted. However, the time zone settings on ours were the exact opposite of those shown in the manual (the A setting was actually D for those who may need this info). Figuring this out saved me from returning it - who needs a clock that auto sets to the wrong time and this feature was the reason we paid more for this model. If it explodes any time in the near future, I'll be sure to get back to you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice overall
Pros:
Nice looking housing and display.
Atomic clock syncs up nicely for me.
Fairly intuitive buttons.
Dual alarm display, very easy to see which alarms are active.
"Snoozinator" a very handy feature.
Total snooze time not limited to an hour: if you keep whacking the snooze bar, it'll keep in snooze mode. (This is in contrast to several other clocks I've tried recently which just leave snooze mode, with no warning. You end up late and angry.) The manual implies otherwise, but the "1 hr maximum snooze" refers to maximum time between alarms using Snoozinator .

Cons:
No day-of-the-week or weekday settings. Not a big deal for me.
No battery backup. Better yet, I wish they'd use non-volatile memory, or at least a good size capacitor, in these things so it would just hold settings.
Radio quality just ok, but that's not a big concern of mine.
Not the greatest wake tones, and no "humane" waking option, doesn't bother me.
Display hard to read in the dark at the two dimmest settings. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This modern clock radio is a step above the clock radios of the past. For starters, the radio updates its time automatically from the U.S. atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado. While this may force you to work or school on time, the benefits of a constantly updated timepiece are critical in this fast-paced world. The radio even adjusts itself automatically for daylight saving time. The illuminated LCD screen gives you vital information, including: time, date, day of week, sleep, wake times, naptime, and radio information. With the gentle wake option, you can choose for the radio's volume to start low and slowly build over time. The AM/FM radio has fourteen presets for individual programming. The clock radio also features an automatic preset system which scans and memorizes available radio stations. With the two alarms you can set wake-up times on the same or different days of the week. The sleep timer is a nice feature for those who use the radio as a sleep aid. There is a headphone jack for people who want to listen to the radio without bugging the person besides them. The clock radio's color is silver and its styling is modern and sleek.

3-0 out of 5 stars Full featured, but drawbacks
There's a lot to like about this clock, but unfortunately it has a few problems. As others have said, the display is either too light or too dark. The manual lists snooze time as 5 min, but it's actually 6 minutes(!). That's way too short for me. Most clocks are 9-10 minutes, I'd probably prefer 15. It has lots of buttons, and a not very intutitive setup. Still, it's nice looking, syncs up pretty quickly for me (not hours), and has a nice day-of-the-week alarm schedule.

2-0 out of 5 stars Excellent design, fails on the basics
My first impression was one of delight, because the RCR-2's controls, programming flexibility, packaging, and sound quality are very well done. But I was ultimately disappointed and had to return the unit because Sangean did not follow through in two important areas: the display and power back-up.

The LCD display is only viewable from a limited angle. We placed the unit on a low headboard about 6" above the pillows, and the digits became invisible. The left-to-right viewing angle is also very limited. The RCR-2 is easily viewable only if you place it on a nightstand lower than your pillow and view it straight ahead within arm's reach.

The LCD backlighting is weak and uneven. Instead of a uniform electro-luminescent light source (e.g. Indiglo), there is a single bulb on one side. Bright on one side and dim on the other, it looks a lot like a cheap digital watch from many years ago. Not a good first impression in a guest bedroom.

The second problem is the limited and/or undocumented power failure backup. The RCR-2 does not use a battery, but does have some internal power storage since I could unplug it for several minutes without losing the time. But the instructions don't say how long an outage the RCR-2 can handle. The radio update can take several hours, so don't depend on the unit re-syncing before wake-up time. Also, there is no mention in the instructions as to whether the alarm times are preserved, even if the clock does re-sync by morning.

Without assurance that the clock would wake me after a power outage of 30 minutes or more (which do occur where I live) I elected to return the RCR-2. If power outages are less of an issue in your area, you can solve many of the display problems by moving up to the Sangean RCR-1, which adds an analog clock face.

3-0 out of 5 stars Love it and hate it
TERRIFIC radio reception for a clock radio, and lots of clever conveniences, although reading the manual is a must. However...

The display is dreadful. The background is a rectangle of amber light. There's no way to dim it and it really can't be ignored in a dark room. Furthermore, the digital display is more gray than black and not particularly easy to read. The light can be turned off but then there's no possible way to read it in a dark room.

Can anyone suggest another clock radio with especially good radio reception?

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
The best clock radio that I have seen!
Dual alarms that can be programmed for any days of the week.
Very comprehensive display; shows day, date and month.
Display backlight is on or off; no dimming feature. You get accustomed to it. It's not excessively bright.

I would buy it again for myself or as an excellent gift.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good functions, poor display
This clock has great functionality as far as the dual alarm settings and radio presets go, but the display is, in my opinion, absolutely terrible. The display is a back-lit LCD with very thin number segments, making it very hard to read from more than a few feet away, especially at night. This is really unfortunate, because otherwise the Sangean seems to be a great product. The atomic clock synchs up to the NIST time signal very quickly (I've had other 'atomic' clocks take a long time), and it is very easy to program. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars CAUTION -NO BATTERY BACK UP!
To me, battery back-up is essential...

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great clock
I purchased this great Sony CD/Radio/Alarm Clock for my office. It works perfect as an office clock as the LED display is rather large and easy to read from across the room. The radio gets surprisingly good reception and my CD's sound great. It's pretty small in size, so fits perfect on my desk too.

In fact, I like this little Sony so much, that I purchased a white one for home use. It's a great alarm clock that is easy to set. You can have two different times programmed in, which works out perfect for the days I wake up early to go to the gym.

If you need an alarm clock or a portable CD player, this would be a great choice.

this thing is nice. The nap timer and the 2 preset alarm times are especially handy, and the sound is surprisingly decent too. Well worth my 50 bucks. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, the PERFECT alarm clock!!!
I looked everywhere for the perfect alarm clock and finally found it with this Sony ICF-CD863V.

This clock is EASY to use. You don't need to spend 1 hour reading the manual before getting it all set up. It's EASY!

The buzzer is AWESOME!!! I LOVE the buzzer! It's SOFT, it doesn't startle you while you are deep asleep, yet it is loud enough that you can hear. I love it.

The light on the display adjusts itself automatically depending on the darkness of the room. Sooo cool!

I love using the CD feature and the sound is just AMAZING!

This is just a VERY NEAT product for a great price compared to the competition. You will not go wrong when buying this alarm clock!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great alarm clock for the price
This is a great alarm clock. I have trouble waking up in the morning, but the alarm volume is perfect. I don't think that the controls are awkward at all and I have no problem turning it off in the morning. The sound is also adequate for an alarm clock (after all, you're not buying it for surround sound or digital quality...it's an alarm clock). The only flaws that I found are the lack of battery backup...not a problem for me because I live on the smae block as a school, so my power never goes out, but I can see how it would be an issue. I was also disappointed to find that the gentle wake feature only applies to the buzzer, not the CD and radio. I believe previous models had this feature for all alarms, and it was a big selling point for me, but my overall satisfaction with the product outweighs my displeasure with this. A great buy for the money. Not quite a Bose, but it is a Sony.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mostly a pretty good product
I bought this cd alarm clock a month ago and it has been working out pretty well. I use and really like the automatic display dimming feature, which brightens the display when there's lots of light and turns it way down in the dark. The FM/AM reception is pretty good and actually better than my Kenwood home theater receiver. The dual alarm feature was important to me when I was shopping for an alarm clock, and this product has a handy triple alarm feature. I am able to wake up to random tracks on a cd I made specifically to wake up to (although you can wake up to the same specific track if you want.) I also love and use the "Gentle Sleep" feature, so I can go to sleep listening to the radio.

One of the cons is that the display can be difficult to read from across the room and when in bed, if you're not on the exact horizontal plane as the alarm clock. However, these issues don't bother me too much because I'm used to checking the time on my watch or phone, and in bed, it doesn't bother me to have to raise my head to see the clock. I'd actually rather not see exactly what time it is all the time on one of those more sleepless nights, as I'm sure a lot of people can appreciate. I also like it to be as dark as possible when I sleep, so an overly bright display was a concern. This unit, while it doesn't dim completely, does not bother me at night.

The only issue that I consider a major one since I'm pretty picky about speaker quality and sound, is that the tiny speakers on this system (I think there are perhaps 3) are crap and start to pop and crackle when the bass level is turned up more than half way and you don't even have the volume that high. But alarm clocks are not known for their great sound, however I'd expect more from Sony at the price you pay for this unit. A workaround for this clock and actually any other with a headphone jacks, is to use that jack for a pair of quality bookshelf/computer desktop-type speakers and I'm sure this product would then be perfect.

Overall: features -- execellent; ease-of-use -- excellent; sound options -- good; speaker quality -- poor.

I only give it 3 stars just because of hte speakers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Jack of (almost) all trades ... Master of None.
This was a BIG disappointment. The FM radio receiver is a joke. On almost all channels, you need to fully extend the wire antenna in a specific direction (different for each channel), or your reception is full of static. I have a cheap Zenith clock radio that is far superior with no special actions, so you know it can be done; Sony just missed the boat. The Mega Bass is a Mega waste. While this unit does a lot of things, there are no 'nature sounds' or weather station type items, which I think would be better than TV sound. I rated it so low, since it does nothing exceptionally, and for the price, it should. Also, the Sony reputation rightfully warrants a premium on many product lines, but definitely not here. I suggest you keep looking ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Sony Product
I purchased this for Christmas, and after having it for around 9 months, I have to say it's fantastic. When shopping, I compared with several others, but most had lousy sound. This unit has beautiful sound whether it's the CD player or the radio. Once you get used to the placement of the controls, it's easy to use. Unlike the last reviewer, I love the way the alarm starts out low - it actually wakes me up without disturbing my wife. It also has adjustable brightness for the display as well as an "auto" adjustment so it's not too bright at night. A super product with great sound! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars It's OK, not bad, not great
First the good news: The radio pulls in my preferred distant station just fine, so no complaint there. The dual alarms are nice, and the ramp-up "beep-beep" sure beats the "NYEEEEEEEEE" my old alarm had. The weekend alarm feature is wonderful. The relatively large display is nice for my wife to see without her glasses.

Now the neutral: The sound is pretty typical clock radio. But, hey -- it's a $16 radio! The slide-rule tuning pretty much means you set it to one station and leave it there forever.

Now the negatives: First, the display is too bright! For this reason, the radio is being banished from my night stand. I can practically read it with my eyes shut. Second, the buttons are counter-intuitive. On the display, alarm #1 is on the left, and alarm #2 is on the right. But, the buttons are backwards - 2 is on the left, and 1 is on the right. The button to shut off the alarm in the morning is very small, and hard to find when you are just barely not asleep. Only the beeper ramps up in volume (not the radio, which my daughter's Phillips radio does). And, the supposed "Automatic time set" is just a stupid marketing ploy - deliberately deceptive, and shame on you, GE. I was aware of it before purchasing, but I'm disappointed in GE.

Anyway, my impressions of the quality and performance are pretty good, but it falls short in the details.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value with lots of features
It's hard to get excited about an alarm clock, but if one were to get excited, it would be over the GE74894. This alarm has practically every feature you can want - and then some: Dual Alarm with choice of music or tone for both, Nap feature, Programmable Snooze and Sleep feature, Auto-Set time, Day-Light Savings mode, Day of the Week indicator, and Weekend mode. I think some of the reviewers were confused by the set-up because it is slightly different than most alarm clocks. Take 5 minutes to read the manual and save yourself the aggravation - it is quite easy once you go through it. It is well-built and looks great, too! An additional note - there is another version of this alarm clock that looks very similar to this model, but only has a single alarm (I'm not sure about the other features). I believe some of the reviewers may have purchased this model...

1-0 out of 5 stars Unreliable
Mine broke w/in 4 months of having it. The alarm ceased going off when you set it to, and instead began going off at its leisure! Also, the buttons are not that easily mastered. I found myself going to the book every time I needed to use it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, basic clock radio.
Even though the faux "Auto Time Set" is misleading, this is a good clock radio for under $20. It's a compact, stylish design. You don't have to turn the alarm off and on each day or on the weekend. The speaker is on top and easily heard. Some find the green LED display a bit bright, but it is not as bright as the $40 backlit LCD Sony I bought a month ago and am now replacing with this model. And the Sony had three brightness settings! It was like sleeping with a night light on. This one is not that bad. I recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great clock radio
I ordered this for my 10 year old son. He had it figured out quickly and has more then he needs. The alarm is great, not an obnoxious noise. It slowly gets louder if you don't turn it off. A feature we both appreciate. The radio reception is good too for our area. He loves the "weekend" off feature so that he can leave the alarm set all the time and it won't go off on the weekends. Nice display, not too bright or dim. I highly recommend this item. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

New electronics that resemble old electronics are all the rage these days. With a case that looks like it belongs in a mad scientist's laboratory, the Tivoli iPal is on the vanguard of retro style. In fact, the "Pal" stands for Portable Audio Laboratory-- a cheeky reference to the unit's obvious Geiger counter-inspired design. Fortunately, the iPal does more than just look cool. When paired with an MP3 player such as the iPod or with a laptop, the iPal is a versatile companion that musters much better sound than we expected from a single-speaker unit. Tivoli is known for engineering small components with surprisingly good sound, such as the Henry Kloss Model One radio. The iPal proved to be no exception.



Its compact size makes the iPal an excellent MP3 player companion.
Design
While the iPal is functionally identical to Tivoli's multicolored line of Pal powered speakers (offered on Amazon.com in Electric Blue, Pearl White, Sunset Red, Basic Black, Neon Yellow and Spring Green), it's white and silver casing is designed to complement the iPod MP3 player.At 6.25 inches high and just under 4 inches wide and deep, the 3.5-pound unit is small enough to slip into a backpack, but it's a little hefty for a briefcase.

The iPal's single rotary dial handles tuning for both AM and FM stations. Testers didn't expect to have much to say about something as mundane as a radio tuning dial, but the iPal's is truly unique. The dial is designed to move between stations at a speed that is a bit slower than the speed at which the user turns the knob. We found that this "ratio" dialing technique makes it far easier to tune stations accurately and quickly. Little touches like this really set Tivoli products apart.



The iPal's radio tuning ratio dial is smooth and accurate.
The tuner band selection and volume dials are easy to control, although their conical shape could make them a little pesky to operate for those with larger hands. A small LED power indicator blinks when battery juice is running low. Meanwhile, the iPal's single, 2.5" magnetically shielded driver is protected by a handsome metal speaker cover.

The back of the unit sports a telescoping antenna that has the solid, metal construction reminiscent of older transistor radio antennae. A standard 3.5mm headphone jack is provided here, as is a 3.5mm auxiliary line in port for plugging in your iPod or other music device. A port for AC/DC power and battery charging is also present. All the ports feature handy, attached rubber plugs that keep out the elements when they're not in use.

The base of the iPal houses a rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride battery pack that, when fully charged, delivered a respectable four hours of listening at moderate volume levels. The iPal's rechargeable batteries give it a leg up on many other portable speaker solutions; gone are the days of hauling around an armada of disposables. Tivoli claims that the battery pack does not suffer from the dreaded memory effects that afflict other types of rechargeable batteries. The batteries are environmentally friendly, too.

Listening Pleasure
At first, we were skeptical about the performance of a small, one-speaker unit that only offers monaural sound. The reality is that most small, portable two-speaker systems don't allow you to place the speakers very far apart anyway, and the iPal's rich, resonant sound more than made up for its lack of true stereo separation. Plus, the iPal is an elegant box with no kludgy speaker cords to fuss around with when you're entertaining on the go.

We plugged the iPal into the kinds of audio devices folks tend to use these days-- an iPod, a laptop and a portable CD player. We came away impressed with the iPal's performance with all three. Highs were crisp and clean while mids and lows were accurate, with a fullness that surprised us. Could this kind of sound really be coming from this little box?, we asked. When we really pumped up the volume, there was noticeable distortion, but at normal to high volume levels, the iPal excelled. For casual listening, indoors or out, the iPal is a great way to let others hear that iPod library you've been slaving away to build.

We were also pleased by the iPal's tuning accuracy. Tivoli says this is the result of the unit's automatic frequency control (AFC) technology. Whatever witchcraft is behind this tuner, we were impressed. Tivoli adds that the iPal can be used as a component tuner via the headphone out port-- not a bad idea given its quality and accuracy. --Joshua Gunn
