I am an iPod speaker/charger junkie having owned the Klipsch iFi and Bose Sounddock while currently owning a Klipsch iGroove. I have been looking to get an alarm clock to wake-up to my iPod, but the iHome was not quite the audiophile quality that I was looking for.
Positives: 1) Design-If you have a modern bedroom area, this thing is a cool head-turner. Design is underplayed in this market, but it is very important! 2) Sound-The sound is excellent at low to medium levels for both the iPod as well as the radio. The highs are very distinct and bass is noticable. 3) Ability to wake up to any song you like out of thousands on your iPod. I'm not sure what the last reviewer was talking about. I have easily been able to wake up to any song I like on my On Time. I can wake up to Wham or U2 or Rob Zombie, it's my choice! 4) The On Time gradually increases the sound for a gentle wake up experience.
Update 2: This thing crashes every month or so. The display shows gibberish. I have to pull the plug and batteries and then it restarts and I reenter the alarm settings. It happens often enough that I leave the batteries out to make rebooting easier!
Update: Since writing this review I've come across one alarm bug and one glitch:
- The Alarm buttons have 3 functions: set, remove, and, silence alarm. The 3rd function is only active when the alarm has gone off. If Alarm 2 goes off, and you hit the Alarm 1 button in error, the 'silence alarm' function for Alarm 2 is no longer available. You have to turn off the JBL. I think a programmmer forgot to use a state diagram.
- I had an alarm failure which at first I thought was a bug. It turned out that there was an internal iPod alarm set. If it went off before the JBL alarm the iPod would turn on, but of course no sound came from the speakers. When the JBL alarm went off the iPod then went from play to pause...
This as it stands is a miss. First the good: The sound quality is really nice for this size a unit. In my office it sounds better then it sounded at the Apple store, probably the smaller room makes a difference.
Nice features, it has two alarms. You can specify for each alarm the time, if its everyday, weekdays or weekends, for how long it will snooze when you press the snooze button (on the top of the unit) and the source (ipod/radio/buzz). The alarm volume is the same as your last listening volume.
Now the bad: For some reason whenever the unit turns on, including when the alarm triggers it sets the ipod to start playing the library (i.e. all songs) rather then continuing from where you left it. This means you lose the playlist selection, the current playing song etc. The manual states the ipod should start from the last played songs, but its not so. Its annoying as its impossible to set to wake to a specified playlist for example. My workaround is to use the...
