When the alarm is set to utilize either the radio or a CD to wake you, the volume cannot be adjusted (so I am told by their tech support). Therefore, by "default" you wake to music at the highest level volume. Not exactly the way I want to wake up! Just a terrible design if the info I received from tech support is accurate. I doubt the accuracy of their info since the instructions say it can be adjusted. I just cannot seem to get it adjusted.
We were excited to find a regular clock/radio alarm for a affordable price but so disappointed that the radio alarm is full volume and can’t be lowered. Obviously you’re aware of it but won’t change it and continue to take peoples money. I should have checked reviews first
I like the large digital display, however, I'm disappointed that I can't adjust the radio alarm volume. Also it's very tricky to set the radio preset stations. The instructions are very sketchy and it takes trial and error to figure it out. When I contacted customer support, I was informed they don't make any other clock radios with adjustable radio alarm volumes. This is the first I've owned where you can't adjust it.
My husband bought the C224B clock radio with dual alarm when his other alarm clock died. In the 30+ years we have been getting up to an alarm, we have never owned one you couldn't shut off. We can't sleep in on the weekends because there is no off button. Definitely a design flaw with engineering. It was not an inexpensive clock that you expect not to work correctly. Not happy at all with this product and have since bought a different alarm clock.
