The clock radio is probably the worst I have had for the function of a wake up alarm system. When the radio wake up goes off it is a full volume. Startled me horribly. Called tech service and was told the default is full volume and can not be changed. I am returning without original box or receipt. If the retailer does not accept, in the bin it goes.
I purchased this unit in order to be able to have a clock radio and phone charger in one unit. I have no problems with the radio/CD player. Wonderful sounds on both. My problem is that I cannot set the minutes (and yes I'm following the instructions on the guide & have had other people to try to set it), and I can't turn the alarm off, even after following instructions.
Horrible user interface. Buttons are so small that when you try to shut off the alarm you'll probably hit one of the other mystery buttons and screw up the time setting. Cheap buttons. You turn on alarm1 and alarm 2 gets enabled too.
Nice radio the sound is clear. The only problem that I have is the volume for the music alarm. I set the volume for 29 and when the alarm sounds it's on 24. I don't hear very well and I need the extra volume.
The volume works well with just turning on the radio it stays at 29.
I bought this unit because finding a clock radio with buttons that have tactile feedback are rare these days. Without the manual from this website, you're gonna have a hard time figuring out how to set the time and the alarms, so update the instructions that ship with the unit, please!
