Just Okay.


Set it up with great anticipation. Only to find it would not pull in all but the strongest, closest stations. I\'m yet to try the alarm clock, which was one of the main reasons I\'d purchased it. The Atomic Clock function did not work, had to manual...

I love this radio!


I've had this radio for about a month and I love it! If I have a complaint, it would be that there's a learning curve involved in resetting the clock, the alarms, the frequencies, etc. Pluses include the alarm that starts out quietly and gradually...

Product Specifications

Continuing in the footsteps of its predecessors, this atomic clock radio is the clock that you set once and forget. Featuring a stylish white face and a large bright-blue display with white text provides high contrast and has a wide viewing angle for easy reading from just about anywhere in your room and leaves such a small footprint it will leave you with the impression of quality. The clock starts by connecting to the atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado to set the most accurate time keeping technology currently available. Once the signal is found it will synchronize every hour to ensure that it is the right time, all the time. Once the clock is set you can program the dual alarms to wake to your favorite AM or FM station or take advantage of the Humane Waking System that begins with a low volume beep and gradually increases in intensity to slowly wake you instead of receiving a firm jolt that others provide. With its intuitive design you have the ability to select the days of the week you wish the alarms to wake you, meaning you never need to worry about being woken up on the weekends, or forgetting to turn the alarm on during the week. Once you set it, you can forget it. It also features Sangeans super capacitor that provides memory and alarm memories for up to 1 hour during a power disruption, eliminating the need for a battery backup. For the ambitious power nappers' of the world the clock features a NAP function that can be set to wake you in 10 minute intervals up to 2 hours without re-setting the alarms so that you can get the most of your power nap. There is also a handy sleep timer that allows you to fall asleep listening to your favorite radio station from 15 minutes up to 2 hours. With the aux-input you can connect your iPod or a CD player to enjoy your favorite soothing sounds CD or digital music collection to fall asleep. With all these features, it is truly the easiest and last alarm clock radio you will ever have to buy. Just set it and forget it... but with all these features, why would you?
