I have one major complaint: The wake to ipod mode does not let you adjust the VOLUME you wake to. It automatically starts at 20% of a built in ALARM VOLUME-which you cannot adjust (I've tried every which way!) and quickly gets louder and louder. It's WAY too loud for me to wake to. It kinda startles me awake and I reach for snooze quickly because it's about to get even louder! yuk! I can turn off the alarm and use the alarm app on my phone, but it just plays a 30 sec ringtone song and DOESN'T USE the alarms speakers-unless you leave them turned on with a lighted button all night. No thanks! If you dont mind a loud alarm this will work great, if not, I would pass.
I'll keep it, but it's not prefect!
You CAN wake up to ALARM TONE or RADIO or IPOD music!! why did i read 2 reviews that said you can only wake to a buzzer?? for those of you that didnt read the instuctions just push the source button whenb your setting your alarm!!! my gosh? really it isnt that confusing or difficult?
AND yes you can TURN OFF the alarm like one person said you cant??? there is a button on the face of the unit (near the clock readout) that says ALARM ON/OFF lol hmmm not to confusing for me?
I concede that the only method of alarm is cascade style. I was in the service and worked in avation so my hearing is poor. I usually dont like cascading alarms. this one though becomes VERY loud? anyone who reports other than that and suggests that they may be less sesitive to sounds really is just using your empathy against you. cmon? this reaches VERY loud levels. usually the first level of cascade wakes me however I never was able to sleep through the second volume increase? and we live in the city.
To the guy that said "my IPOD IS a alarm in itself and it is silly to use the radio as a alarm feature" Some of us like a hardwired battery backup raido/alarm on the nightstand it is more than convienient to have a iphone/ipod dock so we dont need a extra white apple cord drooping around the nightstand. i dont want a pwerstip on my end table? thats my feelings about "why".
The dimmer? I also read people complaining about the brightness? hmmm that is so odd? beacause you can virtual make it undectable from one side of a queen bed to the other? and on the flip side the brightest can be seen so easily in FACT these were the first white digit/black background clock face i ever owned, it is amazingly easy on the eyes.
ONE THING OF NOTE THAT IS TRUE AND SERIOUSLY NEGATIVE (reason for 4 out of 5 stars)
It is totaly true about the cases for your unit this device for some reason has now allowance for a case of ANY kind. you must remove the case before connection. if i didnt love this clock radio i would not accept this fault .. but EVERYTHING ELSE is EXACTLY what I am looking for.
all in all I LOVE this thing I really looks good especially with my contemporary decor even get nice remarks about it ocaasionally from guests.
Hope this rewiew helps give you some insight with your shopping :)
The clock does charge the phone without any annoying prompts, however the Play/Pause/FF/RW buttons do not work when you play songs via iTunes. Yet, those same buttons work fine when I play songs via Pandora. The thing I was really hoping for was some integration of the built in iPhone alarm. There is none. The options are to wake to a tone, a radio station, or whatever the last song you were listening to on your iPod/iPhone. All of these start out at 20% volume and slowly increase to 70%. Personally, I think I'll stick with the built in one one the phone and just use the clock to charge the iPhone.
Some of the other parts of the clock I like are:
Nice sound, not too tinny; Line-in jack; great dimmer on the clock face; can sync time with phone easily; battery backup; iPhone lays down on an adjustable support; mannish good looks.
Some of the hokey parts are:
No AM radio, no option for line-in alarm; setting the time (manually) and alarm involves spinning the volume knob many many times.
All in all it's a decent way to charge your phone by the bed if the price doesn't bust your budget.
I found it very easy to set up and start using. The time can be set by pushing a button to sync it with the iPod's time, which is convenient. In the dock the iPod lays nearly flat (with an adjustable support column underneath it to handle various models/widths), which makes it easy to use the iPod while it is docked. If you want to play music from the iPod, you can push the power button on the MI4604P and that will turn on both the speakers and the docked iPod. On the iPod, you can play your own songs, or you can use your various music apps that play songs or radio channels from the internet. Voila, instant internet radio.
The sound is really good for a box with such a small footprint. It's great for listening to stuff while you are at your desk or lying in bed. The built-in alarm is okay, but my personal preference is to use the iPod's alarm, because that is what I'm used to. With all the other options available these days, I don't listen to radio anymore at home, so I haven't tried the radio on it.
Love the small size, nice styling, and great sound.
