Well, I've been living with this for about 3 weeks now, and I'm pleased with the purchase. I needed to replace an 8 year old Philips CD-radio with dual alarms mostly because the sound quality was like listening to AM radio through a drive-through restaurant speaker.
One of my top priorities, other than sound quality, was a dual alarm. I can't tell you how helpful these are if your schedule changes day to day. Not only does the JBL have dual alarms, it does it better than any other system I've seen. It has a separate on/off button for each alarm AND you have the option to have each alarm set to go off on weekdays only, weekends only, or all 7 days. This is also...
Before purchasing this item I read many of the reviews posted on amazon. Many said what I am about to say, but I chose to ignore them. I should have listened! This clock sounds good and looks good, that's where the good stops. It is supposed to increase in volume when the alarm function is used. Mine did not. Only came on at a jarring volume. No way to control it. I sent it back to amazon for a replacement. The new one worked the same way. I now sent it back to JBL for a replacement, and am waiting arrival of that one. It really needs a remote control. Using the ipod controls while it is docked in the unit is a pain. I bought my son a $70 Memorex ipod clock radio. It came with a remote. And the alarm volume increases automatically like this one is supposed to. The display points up so it is hard to read from bed without lifting your head up. Sound quality and appearance are the only reasons this unit rates three stars.
Sound quality excellent ... can't complain here.
Menu is not so good, and integration with iPod sucks (you cannot program what you want it to play in the morning if you have latest software on iPod or Gen 5 iPod .... that really sucks !!!).
